The Missing Motorcycle

Preparing for the Future... Smiles by White, Greer & Maggard

BY ROBBIE CLARK | EDITOR

A

bout this time last year I fell into the possession of a brand new V espa LX 150 scooter through no action of my own than simply being “a good son.” The story of the scooter – it is a scooter , not a motorcycle, and definitely not a moped – goes back to the summer before I left home for college, and actually much longer back than that. When I was a little kid, my dad had a late ‘70s American Machine and Foundry (AMF) Harley Davidson motorcycle. I’m not sure what model it was (I know the gas tank was black, and had red and blue stripes), but it was loud, tough and raw – nothing like these shiny contraptions of glistening metal you see today – and in true AMF fashion, always on the fritz. Today the bike would probably be considered a collectible, but back then it was a liability. Young boys don’t think about that sort of stuf f though, they think having a motorcycle perpetually in the shop just goes with the territory. I thought the bike was boss, real boss. The motorcycle had a strange life, aside from being in a constant state of disrepair. It had a way of always vanishing from friends’ and relatives’ garages and mechanics’ shops, and sometimes we would go years without knowing its exact location. I was always much more concer ned with this than my dad was. One time we tracked it down to somebody’s backyard in West Virginia, and when we went get it, the machine fired right up – in the interim, somebody had done some solid maintenance work. But I didn’t sit down to write about my dad’s motorcycle, I want to tell you about my scooter. Before I left for school, my dad sat me down and said if I went to Lexington and didn’t jerk around and waste everybody’s money that first year , he’d fix his now-old motorcycle up and give it to me. I retur ned home the following summer with a triumphant 3.8 GPA, and I had come to claim my prize. Incidentally, the bike had pulled another disappearing act. T o this day, I have no idea where that motorcycle is. Through the years, the missing bike became an inside joke within my family – when I’d come home to visit, I’d tease dad and ask if my hog was ready. No, not this time. It never once occurred to me that while we all laughed about the bike, it actually bothered my dad that he hadn’t lived up to his end of the pact (looking back, I sometimes wonder if my mom had intervened before the motorcycle was bestowed on me, and my dad’s hands were tied). It must’ve haunted him, because one day last summer, out the blue, Michael from Vespa Lexington showed up at my of fice with a slick new scooter, and threw me the keys – he said that my dad was making good on an old deal. As far as conveyances go, I can’t think of a better, or more fun, way to get around town, and I recommend it as far as somebody is allowed to recommend something. I take it everywhere, at 70 miles per gallon, and park wherever I want. It’s midnight blue with a camel-colored seat, and whenever I pull up, everybody wants to know the same thing: where’s my helmet? It took me awhile, but I finally got a helmet earlier this summer , and in turn charted a country-roads course for the 120 miles back home to show my dad the scooter . I didn’t ask about the wayward motorcycle this time, but I’m sure its whereabouts are still unknown.

Chevy Chase Street Fair returns in August

ultimately dropped the price of the project over 20 percent.

The Chevy Chase Business Owners Association, along with other neighborhood restaurants and stores, will be hosting the annual Chevy Chase Street Fair from 4 - 10 p.m. Aug. 24 (rain date: 3 - 9 p.m. Aug. 31).

For more information about the Tates Creek sidewalks, see 5th District Councilmember Bill Farmer Jr.’s column on page 9, which details the project’s schedule of how work will progress on both sides of the road.

Intended to be a celebratory showcase of what makes Chevy Chase a great place to live, shop and play, many area businesses will have booths set up along Euclid Avenue, between South Ashland Avenue and High Street. There will also be music, food, entertainment, kids activities, contests and much more. Everyone is invited to attend. The event, which grows in popularity each year, is also a fundraiser for the business owners association, which plans to use funds to help pay for nearby neighborhood projects. For more information, contact Chevy Chase Business Owners Association President and MonTea owner Danielle Montague at (859) 268-8327.

Lexington’s Urban County Council voted unanimously to approve of a resolution accepting the bid to construct sidewalks along both sides Tates Creek Road in July.

Piggy bank bus stop under construction, site work to begin soon Site work will begin on the Euclid Avenue “piggy� BankStop, possibly by early August, said project organizer Kate Savage, who added that the bus stop could be installed by the end of the month. The whimsical bus stop is a joint partnership between Lextran, which will be providing the site excavation work and concrete foundation; Art in Motion, which provided immeasurable advisory assistance to the project; the Columbia Heights Neighborhood Association, of which Savage is a member; and Republic Bank, which donated the space for the bus stop to be installed next to its Euclid Avenue branch. Savage said once the project was complete, it would be the culmination of nearly two years’ worth of work.

The Council voted to accept Bluegrass Contracting Corporation’s $1.67 million bid to complete the Tates Creek Sidewalk Improvements Project, which will add a 5-foot-wide sidewalk on both sides of Tates Creek Road from Montclair Drive and Lakewood Drive to the Lansdowne Shoppes (at Dove Run Road), about 1.6 miles away.

Savage said she was able to raise just shy of $40,000 toward the project. The money came from a number of different sources: a neighborhood sustainability grant, neighborhood development funds, corridors donations, a $2,000 donation from Kroger (located across the street from the future bus stop), a $2,500 University Neighborhood Advisory Committee donation, a $10,000 Neighborhood Action Match Program grant, and more than $10,000 from a Kickstarter campaign, which ended last October.

In the summer of 2009, the council voted to accept a 80-20 matching grant between the Department of Transportation and Lexington to go toward the project, which had a budget of about $1.2 million.

The bus stop is being built by Josh Marrillia of Marrillia Design and Construction. Designs were provided by Patrick Morgan, a Lexington native attending architecture graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania.

In June, during the first bidding process, the city received two bids, which both came in at $2 million and were not feasible. The project was rebid, with the time that the construction crews could operate changed and the liquidated damages lessened if the project was not completed in the timeframe specified in the contract, and

At the moment, the only bus stops in the vicinity are small, uncovered benches that are heavily utilized. Savage said whenever there is poor weather, bus riders have to brave the elements, and she felt the neighborhood could provide a more comfortable place for those using public transportation.

sidewalk by about 1,000 feet. As the sidewalk goes in and the construction clears, the landscape crew will follow at a respectable distance. This way, the whole project will maintain a more finished appearance as it progresses. As many best management practices as possible will be followed so that signage, silt fencing, mud prevention on the roadways, and other considerations will always be ongoing. When the process is up and running, it is our intent for the contractor to “lay” 100 feet per day of new sidewalk. That’s a goal – the actuality may vary. As noted from the critical path description, when the project “tur ns” at Alumni Drive and later at Albany Road, the pedestrian crossing upgrades will take place as the crew works its way back down the opposite side of Tates Creek Road.

Property owners along the Tates Creek Road corridor who will be impacted by this project will soon receive letters detailing the project and who to call if you happen to have questions or encounter issues along the way.

COUNCIL TO HEAR PROPOSED CHANGES TO EUCLID KROGER

Offering the finest in Lexington real estate. NEW LISTING

NEW PRICE

NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION LAUNCHES YARD SIGN CAMPAIGN PRIOR TO HEARING BY ROBBIE CLARK CHEVY CHASER MAGAZINE

A

s the upcoming public hearing before the Urban County Council on the proposed zone change and variances for the new Euclid Avenue Kroger grocery store approaches on Aug. 13, some concer ned neighbors have formed an advocacy group “dedicated to sound geometry and reasoned discourse in civic life at the heart of Lexington.” The organization, called Euclid League, is behind the current “No to Fort Kroger” yard-sign campaign, which can be seen in areas around the Euclid grocery store. Their website, www.euclidleague.org, has infor mation about the proposed Euclid Kroger , renderings and a place where visitors can sign an online petition. Euclid League member Kate Savage says the ter m “Fort Kroger” was coined in reference to a 300-foot-long brick wall the current design plans show being constructed at the cor ner of Euclid and Marquis avenues. Though the renderings show design features and windows which break up the exterior wall, Savage says if the wall was constructed, it would be about the same length as the brick wall on the Jif peanut butter factory facing Winchester Road. Instead of renovating and expanding the current store, Kroger plans to raze the existing 38,000-square-foot structure and build a much lar ger outlet, which would be over 64,000 square feet. The current Kroger opened in 1980, and, aside from renovation work in 1999, has not had much updating. Kroger representatives said the intention behind the new, larger store would be to of fer customers a much wider array of products and services. In order to build a 64,000-squarefoot structure, the site would need to be rezoned from B-1 to B-6P . Along with applying for a new zone change, Kroger is seeking a number of variances to the B-6P zone for the proposed structure such as allowing three exterior walls to exceed 100 feet without a change in the setback; reducing the 50-foot setback to

25 feet along Marquis Avenue; increasing the amount of space a building can cover on a lot from 35 percent to 50 percent; and reducing the setback from 50 feet to 40 feet along Euclid A venue and in the back of the store. Savage feels that the current designs for the the new store are not context-sensitive to the adjacent neighborhoods. “They will be setting a new precedent in this neighborhood by getting – if they get it – a zone change to B-6P , which is a shopping center , like Fayette Mall,” Savage said. On May 23, the Planning Commission voted to approve the request for the zone change, as well as the zoning variances. The council then had 90 days to vote on the change. After the upcoming public hearing, which is held at 5 p.m. Aug. 13 in the council chambers, the council will vote on whether to approve of the zoning changes.

Fayette County Real Estate Report BY DAVID O’NEILL | FAYETTE COUNTY PVA

T

his time last year, we reported that, finally, there was good news in the local real estate market – specifically, that the number of houses sold during the first half of 2012 had increased over the same six-month period in 2011. One year later , that highly encouraging trend continues. We ended 2012 on a very positive note: 17 percent more homes were sold in 2012 than 2011. Positive growth in the housing market from one year to the next had not happened in Fayette County since 2005. We have good reason to be optimistic about the future, as this trend continues to the present day. In fact, the number of homes sold in Fayette County has increased over the previous year, in every single month of 2012 and 2013 except December . Prior to 2012, slowing sales, rather than declining values, had been the most significant symptom of the weakened economy locally. Lexington did not see across-the-board declines in property values reported by the national media as experienced in Florida, Nevada, and other areas that previously experienced enormous increases in property values prior to the recession. Therefore, neighborhood re-assessments due to property value increases have been reduced to as few as 10 neighbor hoods over the past five years. In spite of the lack of reassessments, the annual property tax roll in Fayette County has never declined. In fact, it has grown at a very modest rate of slightly more than 1 percent per year. This growth is attributable to sales, property improvements and the use of technologies implemented in the PV A office that have aided in the discovery of improvements not previously listed on the tax rolls. For 2013, the overall real property tax roll is $23 billion. The accompanying chart is a snapshot that compares home sales in individual neighborhoods from 2009 through 2012. Readers are cautioned against drawing conclusions about overall property values in specific neighbor hoods where the number of sales in each area represent very small sample sizes, and therefore may be misleading. For example, one or two sales in which a homeowner realizes an unusually high capital gain or loss would cause anomalies in such a small sample, making the percentage of change misleading at best. The transactions represented in the data are single-family residential property sales that the PVA office has determined to be arms-length transactions, or the sale of property from a willing seller to a willing buyer given a reasonable time on the market. The data does not include transactions involving transfers of property between family members, foreclosures, refinancing records, or other atypical sales; nor does it include sales of commercial, condominium, townhouse, duplex and multi-family dwellings. The Property Valuation Administrator (PVA) is required by statute to inspect each parcel of real property in the county once every four years. Additionally, the PVA is required to evaluate property assessments annually, and adjust individual assessments when sale prices in their respective jurisdictions deviate by more than 10 percent from current assessments. Typically, but not always, reassessments coincide with the physical inspections every four years. The chart also indicates (denoted with an asterisk) which neighborhoods are up for inspection and possible reassessment during the upcoming tax year . The schedule for inspections county wide follow what is referred to as the quadrennial plan, or “quad.” This year’s quad includes all condominiums, townhouses and rural parcels under 10 acres, as well as 51 of Fayette County’s 300-plus residential neighborhoods. A map and description of the quad can be found at www.FayettePV A.com. An assessor from the Fayette County PVA Office will visit each property, take a new photograph and look for changes since the previous inspection. PV A staff do not access the inside of homes but by law may enter backyards to inspect additions or improvements. These inspections are a vital component to the reassessment process. If a homeowner does not agree with their property assessment, they have the right and are encouraged to contact the PVA office. The Fayette County PVA office is currently working on assessments for 2014. If the assessment of a property changes for 2014, the property owner will receive a notice by mail in mid-April. Property owners may conference with the PVA and discuss their assessments beginning on the first Monday in May and continuing for 13 consecutive days. If the property owner remains unsatisfied with the assessed value after the conference, they are encouraged to appeal to the Local Board of Tax Appeals.

David O’Neill David O’Neill is the Fayette County Property Valuation Administrator. All of the information from the accompanying chart originated from the F ayette County Property Valuation Administrator’s database.

Ted Vimont and Tom Shirley

As Lexington’s real estate market turns the corner, see which neighborhoods saw the most action in 2012

A

s Fayette County Property V aluation Administrator David O’Neill reported in his annual real estate assessment for this magazine (on page 12), there is an “encouraging trend” happening in the Fayette County real estate market, as evidenced by 17 percent more homes being sold in 2012 than 2011. Adjusting the microscope to look at even finer details, many of Lexington’s neighborhoods are spurring this success, especially in the Chevy Chase area. Here’s a look at the top five neighborhoods within Chevy Chaser magazine’s distribution area that were very active in 2012. They are ranked according to the number of homes sold versus the number of homes in the given neighbor hood.

CHENAULT UP AND OUT A TWO-STORY ADDITION NEARLY DOUBLED THE SIZE OF THIS MID-’40S HOME, GIVING THE FAMILY SOME NEEDED ELBOW ROOM BY ROBBIE CLARK | CHEVY CHASER MAGAZINE

W

hen Jeff Carrico was in the market to purchase a home, on a lark he drove down Chenault Road to see if anything was available. He had worked for a friend who lived toward the end of the street, who was always talking about how peaceful the neighbor hood was, and Jef f thought the street was worth a look. “Honestly, when it came time for me to look for a house, I drove down this street to see if there was anything for sale. There were two houses for sale, I looked at both of them, and I ended up buying this one,” he said, speaking of his residence on the 200 block of Chenault Road. Five years ago, Jef f’s wife, Tracy, moved in with Jef f and his son, W ill, who will be a senior at Henry Clay High School this year . A few years later , the family began considering ways in which they could update and expand the cozy 1,300-square-foot home, which was built in 1946. “All the houses around here are great, but they are so compartmentalized,” Tracy said. “At Christmas, there would be the tree, the couch and family members up against each other. “We don’t need a lot of space, we don’t need a big house, but we needed at least a couple of rooms where we could have gatherings and entertain and have people over and not feel like we were cramped.” The hidden twoThe family worked with architect and builder Tony story addition gives Brown in devising a tasteful, unobtrusive two-level addithis Chenault home tion in the back of the house.

PHOTOS BY Jeff, an associate director for UK’s Inpatient ROBBIE CLARK Pharmacy Services and director of the Investigational Drug Service, as well as an assistant professor , says Tracy, a traveling nurse, helped direct the designs and motifs for the added space. “Tracy really lead the charge on this stuff, she was heavily involved in the design,” Jeff said. “I offered my opinion, but when we look around, it’s what Tracy saw this to be.” Now as the family enjoys the added elbow room when entertaining family or friends, they say they are more and more happy that they opted to invest in an older home instead of moving into a larger home, especially given their love for old homes and the neighbor hood’s location. “The things that we can walk to from here just really added to the location, added to our lifestyle,” Jeff said. “It’s just very nice to think that you don’t have to get into a car.”

too many events overlapped with each other; he let each venue – there were over a dozen – decide their own special programming throughout the week. The festivities were a surprising success. Vandergrift recalls one telling moment when he went to Country Boy Brewing early in the mor ning on a Saturday as the brewery was serving coffee-bean-infused beers all day for Craft Beer Week. “I walked over and there were 60 people in the bar at 9 or 9:30 in the morning – all drinking beer ,” he said. “I was like, this thing really did pick up. This is really cool.” Many of the participating bars reported record numbers throughout the week. Greg Leimer , an owner of craft beer bar Lexington Beerworks, which hosted several events during Craft Beer Week, said the festivities were a boon to the venues, as well as the city as a whole since a lot of people came into town for the celebration. Leimer says it takes somebody willing to give their time and ef forts, like Vandergrift, to see these beer -centric events through to completion. “He’s the guy that pulls us all together. We know other brewers, but it would take us forever to all get together and sit

down and design something like Craft Beer Week,” he said. But when it comes trying to find a way to make a living promoting local and craft beer , Vandergrift says he’d rather stick with the profession that first got him interested in good beer. “I don’t know, I kind of like the engineering. Beer is for fun,” he said. “It’s one of those things where if it became a fulltime job, I’m not sure if it would be as fun as it is any more.”

BLUE STALLION TAPS INTO BREWERY SCENE BY ROBBIE CLARK CHEVY CHASER MAGAZINE

F

ive home-brewing buffs have turned in their amateur status as they tapped the keg on Lexington’s newest craft brewery in mid-July. Brothers Kore, Zac and Xavier Donnelly, along with Jim Clemons and Nico Schulz, opened Blue Stallion Brewing Co. at the cor ner of Newtown Pike and W est Third Street, in a 7,000square-foot building the team had been renovating and fitting with equipment for nearly nine months. Kore Donnelly, who has been interested in home-brewing beer for 10 years, said plans for the brewery began to ferment 18 months ago when he met fellow brewers Clemons and Schulz. Along with a passion for quality, hand-crafted beers, they all shared a common goal of eventually wanting to open their own brewery. A business plan was put in the works. While the business owners did a substantial amount of work to the brewery’s interior, including building a long, custom bar, they also installed the necessary plumbing and pipework for the lar ge, industrial brewing equipment. The team purchased the fermenters and tanks from Big Rock Chophouse, a brewery just outside of Detroit that was in the process of replacing its system as it expanded its brewing capacity. Currently, Blue Stallion’s system is designed to brew 15 barrels at a time. Donnelly said that kegs carrying Blue Stallion beers should begin to appear in restaurants and bars locally after the team has a feel for how much brew they need to keep on hand at the brewery. Ultimately the owners would like to install a bottling line so they can make Blue Stallion beers available for retail. “We need more tanks before heavy distribution is feasible,” Donnelly said, “but that’s in the plan.” Combined, the Blue Stallion owners possess decades’ worth of brewing experience; Schulz, a native of Ger many, where he worked for a time at a regional brewery, has even had a formal education in the field at Chicago’s Siebel Institute of Technology, the oldest brewing school in the country. “He’s known exactly what he’s wanted to do since he was 16,” Donnelly said of head brewer Schulz, who has concocted a number of recipes the brewery utilizes. The beers Blue Stallion will be producing will have a decidedly international emphasis and will focus on Ger man-style

lagers and British ales, though not exclusively. As the brewery opened, beers ontap included a Munich dunkel, a Ger man pilsner, a Scottish 70 shilling, a smoked lager and a hefeweizen. Blue Stallion is the third brewery to open in Lexington since the beginning of last year and comes at a time when the popularity of local and craft beer in town is spilling over . Donnelly said the local beer landscape is exceedingly dif ferent than when he was first old enough to drink, more than 10 years ago. “The palate in Lexington has changed so much since I was 21,” he said. “Back then, you could only buy Sierra Nevada and Sam Adams anywhere that wasn’t Liquor Barn. So there wasn’t much of an opportunity for anybody to lear n what they like outside of Miller Lite and Bud and all that. “Nowadays, 21- and 22-year -olds are switching to craft beer early, which wasn’t the case when I was growing up,” he said. And in a bit of serendipitous location-scouting, Donnelly pointed out that soon a lot of drinking-age college students will be in Blue Stallion’s neighborhood, with the opening of Bluegrass Community and T echnical College’s Newtown Pike Campus, located a few

blocks north at the former site of Eastern State Hospital. Donnelly said he and his partners weren’t aware of the new college when they decided on the W est Third Street spot — the owners were looking for a space downtown with the proper zoning requirements needed for a brewery to be able to distribute beer — but the development is welcome news, and the new brewer is looking forward to being a part of the reshaping of an area of town he has known his whole life.

“It should be an exciting time for this corridor,” Donnelly said. “I grew up across the street from where W est Sixth Brewing is now, so I love this area. I rode my bike by this area all growing up. That was another reason we wanted to stay in this area. I always loved it.” Blue Stallion Brewing is located at 610 W. Third St. For more information, visit www.bluestallionbrewing.com

Lexington Beerworks plans expansion, adding food service BY ROBBIE CLARK CHEVY CHASER MAGAZINE

A

fter opening in early 2012, the owners of Lexington Beerworks are planning on expanding the services the craft and specialty beer bar offers, including adding food service. Along with being a bar , Lexington Beerworks, located on North Limestone, is a retail location for a variety of home brewing equipment. The owners, Michael V incent, Greg Leimer and Jason Wolf, signed the lease on the space above their bar earlier in July when it became available. The unit is broken into a number of rooms, which they plan on utilizing for a number of different purposes, such as creating a space for private parties and installing a commercial kitchen. “I think the No. 1 thing we’ve found since we’ve opened is the need for food,” Vincent said. The owners said the menu will be small but will consist of a number of high-quality food items, such as artisan pizzas. Vincent said a small menu will enable the chef to change up the of ferings often, and will allow them to provide special food and beer pairings. “We’ve always had this plan in the past, and we’re at the point right now where we think we’ve got the craft beer at the bar and the home brew side down pat,” he said. “We think we can take it to the next level and be a spot for dinner .” Though the kitchen will be located upstairs, patrons will still order the food downstairs in the main bar area. V incent said they hope to have the kitchen and private room installed by September.

Another room upstairs will be utilized to increase the amount of home-brewing equipment and ingredients available. “Since the very beginning, we’ve wanted to carry more home brew supplies, but we’ve been very constrained with the space, and now that this space has opened up, we’re fortunate to have some extra space where we can expand our offerings,” Leimer said. Along with added home brew equipment, Leimer says Lexington Beerworks also plans on carrying winemaking equipment and kits. “It’s very popular around the country right now,” he said. “People are making their own wine now because the kits are very good.” And, depending on the per mitting process, the owners would like to use another room upstairs to tur n Lexington Beerworks into the city’s newest brewery. Leimer says they would like to use the home-brewing equipment and ingredients they sell at the bar to make small batches of beer which would be available on tap. “We get a lot of questions from people about home brewing – what’s it taste like, is it any good – and I think a lot of people are really surprised at how good home brew can be,” Leimer said. Though Beerworks would have to go through the same steps to get a permit to sell the beer made on the premises, Vincent said the process should be somewhat easy since they will only be brewing extremely small batches and won’t be bringing in lots of industrial equipment, just carboys. “There will be no brewery tours,” he said.

liqueur, and the Hemingway Daiquiri ($9, Bacardi, maraschino liqueur, agave nectar and fresh squeezed lemon), as well as more straightforward standards (with top shelf twists) like The Cosmo ($11) and the Old Fashioned ($11). The Jax’s food menu is divided by “Shareables,” entrees, salads and desserts. The highest priced item (steak and fries) clocks in at $27, but the majority of the menu hovers in the $10 to $20 range. Although no explicit mention is made on the menu of locally sourced produce, by highlighting the use of local BY BOO VIVANT | TABLE FOR TWO products such as Lexington Pasta and Stuarto’s olive ocated in the prime (but capricious) venue on the oil and vinegar , The Jax essentially seeks to put a corner of Short and Limestone streets, the new fresh, local spin on traditional ethnic fare (braised downtown eatery The Jax touts itself as “a new pork tacos, $11.90; antipasti, $14,50; Salmon Santorini, standard in Lexington’s social diversion.” The concept $16.60). hinges on casual-yet-elegant ambiance, with mid-priced, We started with the pot stickers ($7.50), prepared in globally inspired fare – menu items range from Drunken a traditional Asian fashion with pork and a sweet chili Noodles ($15.50) to Sicilian Mussels ($16.50) to Beignets soy dipping sauce; although they didn’t exactly innovate ($4.50). or improve on the traditional recipe you would expect With a motif that centers on the mantra “Eat.

My guest and I took the bait, starting with drinks ($15.50), which my guest ordered for his meal. W ith from the extensive cocktail list.

didn’t do a whole lot for the sliders, but they kept the dish interesting and served as a nice detour from potato chips. After a couple of beers – including the extremely stout New Holland brew Dragon’s Milk ($8.75) – we did not have room for dessert, but the Cuban Plantains (pan-fried and drizzled with caramel sauce, coconut and coconut whipped cream, $6.50) top my wish list for my next visit. With its sexy, uptown ambiance, lighthearted ‘80s background music, impressive bottled beer selection, bourbon flights and relatively affordable price The Jax points, The Jax would 5 p.m. - close Tues. - Sat. be an equally fitting 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. and venue for a ladies 6 p.m. - close Sun. 101 W.

Within my initial visit, it was never fully clear to me what it was that the restaurant was trying to be. Upscale or casual? Local or global? Traditional or trendy? The Jax covers all of the above and more, without ever really seeming to hone in on a specific niche – “Be everything all at once” may be a more appropriate mantra. Maybe that’s the point. And maybe that’s OK. Our total, before tax and tip, came to $85.90.

ONE-ON-ONE WITH FOUNDING DIRECTOR OF NORTH LIMESTONE MUSIC WORKS BY SARAYA BREWER CHEVY CHASER MAGAZINE

A

PORTRAIT OF A YOUTH MUSIC DIRECTOR

RACHEL HOCKENBERRY 38

chevy chaser magazine august 2013

s founding director of the new Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra program North Limestone Music Works, recent Lexington transplant Rachel Hockenberry faces a multitude of challenges, which range from finding her way around a new town to for ming a string orchestra of up to 30 2nd and 3rd graders who have likely never played a string instrument before. Fortunately, Hockenberry, a recent graduate of the Sistema Fellows Program at New England Conservatory of Music, loves a good challenge. “When I was working on my doctorate at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, I was discovering that I really wanted to do something dif ferent than the traditional classical music path,” she said. “I wanted to bring people together through community.” Hockenerry talked with a trusted professor about her hopes for her future, and he introduced her to the El Sistema concept, a world-renowned, community-based youth music training model founded by V enezuelan pianist and activist José Abreu in V enezuela in 1975. The model – a highly intensive, tuition-free music training regimen that starts at a young age and is primarily geared toward children of a poor socioeconomic status – has served as the catalyst of scores of “El Sistemainspired” programs across the United States in recent years. When it launches at north Lexington’s Arlington Elementary this month, North Limestone Music Works will be the first program of its kind in the state. The program will consist of students from Arlington Elementary, who will rehearse five times a week, two hours a day throughout the school year . The model is extremely intensive compared to other youth orchestra programs; by comparison, other central Kentucky youth orchestras rehearse once a week. Hockenberry said that this level of intensiveness is not only common for El Sistema and El Sistema-inspired programs; that level of trusting the students’ capabilities is actually a foundation of the El Sistema model. “It’s very normal for El Sistema programs in the U.S. to rehearse every day for two hours; in V enezuela, three hours a day is the minimum,” Hockenberry

said. “It’s one of those things where it’s not traditional here, but there’s no need to place limits on a child. Just because it’s not traditional doesn’t mean that they can’t do it.” As the program model is outlined, the original students from year one will continue in the program until they are 18, and the program will continue to grow to admit new 2nd graders each year, with the older students serving as mentors for the incoming classes. Hockenberry points out that the research showing how music training can successfully contribute to a child’s academic performance is evident, but her own experience has shown that the means of structure and expression that this level of music training can provide for young people is immeasurable. “It really helps you learn the process of problem solving – if you are dealing with a dif ficult passage, a dif ficult piece of music, what are the steps that you need to take to solve that problem, to get a desirable product?” she said. “It teaches the elements of problem solving, patience and hard work at a young age,

and it shows that with hard work and determination, you can experience achievement.” Hockenberry recently took the time to answer some questions about her background, personal life and perspective on being a Lexington transplant. You’ve lived in Boston, Cincinnati and spent time in lots of other cities around the country. What ar e your first impressions of Lexington? Because of how geographically close they are, I thought that Lexington and Cincinnati would be a lot alike. I was wrong. Despite the culture shock due to my own false assumptions, I’m finding Lexington to be an extremely friendly place. I’m excited to do a lot more exploring of the city in the coming months. What are you currently listening to? I’m preforming Johannes Brahms’ “Trio for Hor n, Violin and Piano” in a recital on Aug. 6, so dif ferent recordings of that piece have been on loop in my iTunes for the past few weeks. It’s a great

piece to have to listen to over and over again, though. What’s something about yourself that most people don’t know? When I was growing up, I was really serious about gymnastics. I competed for years until a back injury prevented me from continuing. After that, I became a gymnastics coach, and eventually became certified to be a judge in gymnastics competitions. That feels like a for mer life at this point. What are you most looking forward to in the coming year? I really can’t wait to see how our program takes shape. One of the coolest things about El Sistema-inspired programs in the United States is that they all look different from one another, because they respond to the needs of their given communities. We’ve hired two amazing teachers and have great community partners, and I’m so excited to see how everything manifests. I’m also really looking forward to making a lot of music with all of the great musicians in town.

Walk a Mile in His Shoes BY HARRIETT ROSE | OBSERVATIONS COLUMNIST

U

sually it takes me less than 10 minutes to dispose of the local paper . I’m a fast reader and there usually isn’t that much to dwell on in the paper . But the other day was dif ferent, and there was a lot to make me think. First, there was the headline and obituary for Don Webb. I knew that he and his brother Dudley were responsible for transforming downtown Lexington from the little town I grew up in to what it looks like today. Until I read the obituary, I didn’t know how much of the charitable and educational changes were due to Don. I knew him to speak to, but most of what I knew about him came from newspapers and from controversy spelled out in articles over the years. I thought about that – how much we know about most people derives from controversial comments evolved from the fair ness attempted by the press in many subjects where there are inevitably two sides. The second meaningful article concerned the speech President Obama made about the Zimmerman murder trial and its effect on our divided society. I watched that trial and found that my opinion changed from day to day about who did what to whom depending on who was testifying. I was admiring of the fir mness of the judge, keeping order with impassioned attor neys and witnesses, maintaining fairness and consistency all the way. Until the end, I had not fir mly made up my mind. When the jury asked for and got the definition of manslaughter, I decided that acquittal was the way it should be decided, not expecting that verdict and grateful not to be on the jury. Having lived so long in a segregated community where it seemed to me that white people treated black people with kindness and courtesy, I never experienced the fear that seems to exist today – the kind of fear that provoked Mr . Zimmerman to see Trayvon Martin as a threat to his safety. I was proud of the peaceful way integration came about in Lexington; indeed my husband, Stanley Rose, was among the many white people who worked to bring about that quiet result and were rewarded for their efforts with threatening letters from disgruntled white people. I think it must have been anticipated that the verdict, and before that the deed itself, would be followed by the sort of protest that occurred. The violence was much less than that which followed other such events. What the president said made me think more deeply about the reactions to the verdict. I had never considered the embedded hurt that he revealed at having been misjudged and prejudged and considered a threat when not having done anything wrong. I remember more subtle for ms of discrimination when respectable black women were not allowed to try on clothes in department stores, when nursemaids could sit on the first floor of theaters when they accompanied white children but had to sit in the balcony when alone. Those incidents took place in a segregated time – they were demeaning, but not the stuff of public fear expressed by the incidents Mr . Obama related. Now, when we are supposed to be equal before the law, such incidents take on a worse meaning than demeaning – they reek of broken promises and betrayal. In order to bring about that blessed time when we could live side-by-side with dignity, both races would have to work on understanding and imagine walking in the others’ shoes. Maybe then peace would come and we could all get along. I hope I live that long.
