This year, WFPL economy reporter Roxanne Scott covered everything from downtown development to issues surrounding immigrant deportation and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Here are some of her favorite stories of 2017:
A short profile on Louisville’s soccer fans — and the surprising pop-up soccer field downtown where they’re meeting to play the sport.
This piece follows some Louisvillians who are taking a skill from their home country — in this case, Burundi — to create success in a new one.
In the words of my awesome co-worker, Amina Elahi, “Come for the Santeria, stay for the Satanism.”
This story looked at Louisville church structures, and their rebirths after congregations move out. It’s a nice mix of neighborhood development, religion and beer.
This piece is about the closing of the Old Louisville Kroger and a look at food deserts shows why a grocery store is more than a place to buy your food.
