Inside: We featured Bert Bottorf, a classical linguist with a doctorate in early Greek poetry — who had found his calling creating gardens for Louisville's well-to- do. "For those who get no reprieve from Louisville's heat and humidity, Bottorf prescribes pools of water and blue flow- ers for their cooling effect," we wrote. A bachelor living in a cottage on his parents' farm in Goshen, Bottorf helped found what's now Goshen Gardens, owned by the Belknap family (for whom the Univer- sity of Louisville's campus and the High- lands neighborhood are named). "He's an experimenter and he's always stretching the plant palette," garden expert Susan Frey said of Bottorf, who died in 1986. We also wrote about the governor's west Louisville task force, aimed at creat- ing businesses and jobs in the economical- ly depressed section of town. "While we may not be able to solve their problems immediately, we're hopeful that we can lay some vital groundwork," said chairman Joe Hammond, known for the storied jazz club Joe's Palm Room, which he had sold in 1979 and which would close in 2015. Michael A. Bateman, the minority affairs officer for Brown & Williamson Tobacco
