Charter Communications Launching Low-Cost Internet

Lowering your monthly bills

by MIKE HALL, Owner/Broker/Agent

As a homeowner, you're probably always looking for a way to save some money. Unfortunately, utilities occur every month, and they can often be some of your biggest expenses. You can have your electricity provider perform an audit to help save money. You can turn off your faucet while brushing your teeth to save water. When it comes to saving money on an Internet connection, things become more complicated.

Internet

Fortunately, Charter Communications is launching a low-cost Internet option for families and seniors. Within Jefferson County this broadband service will cost $14.99 for those who qualify. There will be no additional charge for necessary equipment such as a modem. AT&T currently offers a similar option for $10 a month but speeds are much lower. The Charter Communications option is three times the speed of AT&T’s best option.

Eligible subscribers include families with students who participate in the National School Lunch Program and seniors who are 65 and older who receive Supplemental Security Income program benefits. For more information, visit www.SpectrumInternetAssist.com.

Get on your way to saving today, and keep your funds for those summer landscape projects!

A Public Market Comes to Town

In which foodies like me get their food on

by MIKE HALL, Owner/Broker/Agent

open-air market

When you think of open-air markets, you probably think of far-off, exotic locations. Owners of Safai Coffee want to change that. They are planning to bring an open-air public market to Louisville’s Shelby Park and adjoining neighborhoods where Louisvillians can shop for local goods and interact directly with those producing them.

In recent years, public markets have grown in popularity but Louisville has not had one since the early 2000s. Haymarket left a void when it closed in 2004. It had been operating since 1891 and offered city dwellers the opportunity to meet the farmers producing their food and buy directly from them. As the farm-to-table movement continues to grow, and consumers become increasingly concerned about where their food comes from, this model of shopping has grown in popularity across the nation. It seems only natural that a city consumed by food culture, like Louisville, would follow this trend and support a public market.

This is not just another retail location, but an opportunity for the Louisville Metro to come together as a community for healthier living.
