Make out your entertainment itinerary with our Fall Arts Preview

Smiles by


White, Greer & Maggard


elcome to our annual Fall Arts Preview – a concise glimpse of the upcoming arts and entertainment options coming to the area’s stages, streets and galleries during the 2012 - 2013 season. Concise, but extensive. This is our fifth installment of this special section, and it’s one of our favorites to produce. All of us here at the magazine hold various forms of the arts in high regard, so it’s fun to get a sneak peak at what’s coming in the months ahead, and maybe even try to weasel some “press passes” for some upcoming performances, though I’m usually just told to sit in the back and keep quiet. Loyal readers through the years will notice one thing in particular about our annual preview: it gets beefier every year. And that’s a good thing, for two reasons – one is selfish and one altruistic: First, it means that more and more groups and organizations and ragtag bands of performers and artists are taking it upon themselves to make Lexington’s cultural offerings more robust – more art exhibits, more ballets, more special guest conductors, more concerts, more festivals, more curtain calls, more stuff to do. It’s a great thing to happen for our city’s character, albeit a little rough on our wallets as we make return trips to the box office. Still, and I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but please let me reiterate, a vibrant arts scene is essential to a city’s prosperity. It does all sorts of things to help bolster a local economy, like attract young professionals to live and work in the area and woo visitors into town for an evening or the weekend. Think of it as an investment in the community as you’re ordering tickets or paying at the door. Second, it means that local arts administrators and volunteer marketing coordinators find our Fall Arts Preview useful enough to want to be included, which is a great thing to happen for my job security. Please take the time to peruse our Fall Arts Preview, which begins on page 27. We may have worked hard to compile the hundreds of listings from dozens of area venues and organizations, but I know we haven’t worked as hard as all of these individual artists and organizers in their various creative pursuits. They’re excited for you to see their stuff, and we all need to be excited about going out to see it.


Welcome to our annual Fall Arts Preview. On the following pages, you will the upcoming arts season find information about in Lexington, including visual art exhibits, fall festivals, and music, dance and theater season schedule s.

From experimental theatre traditional concerts from and music to more Lexington Singers, this the philharmonic and season contains somethin for everyone. g

New design for Woodland Triangle intersection in final phase Given the high rate of car accidents at the squirrelly convergence of one-way Maxwell and High streets at Kentucky Avenue adjacent to the entrance to Woodland Park, coupled with the daunting pedestrian challenges, the Lexington Department of Public Safety has asked 3rd District Councilmember Diane Lawless’ office and the Department of Environment Quality & Public Works to craft a redesign for the intersection to mitigate hazardous traffic. The current proposed design includes an extended curb at the intersection which would prevent through traffic traveling south on Kentucky Avenue. Motorists wishing to proceed down Kentucky Avenue from Main Street to Euclid Avenue would be forced to make a circular motion around Woodland Triangle (proceeding right on High Street, left on Woodland Avenue, left on Maxwell Street, then right on Kentucky Avenue). Motorists heading north on Kentucky Avenue toward Main Street would be required to turn right on Maxwell Street before cutting left to travel south. Kevin Wente, an administrative officer with the Department of Environmental Quality & Public Works who has been working with the redesign, said once the final design had received final approval, he would like to see the intersection under construction within the next two to three months. Wente said he was able to get some money encumbered from the coal and gas sever ance tax

to go toward the project, as well as a percentage of the money Councilmember Lawless receives for resurfacing purposes.

Community Action Council announces 2012 Poverty Forum The Community Action Council will hold its 2012 Poverty Forum from 6 - 9 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Lexington Convention Center. The featured speaker is Tavis Smiley, best known as the host of the late night PBS talk show “Tavis Smiley”and also Public Radio International’s “Tavis Smiley Show.” “The Poverty Forum is Community Action Council’s most important event to raise community awareness about the 15 percent of our citizens , including 28 percent of our children, who lack the resources to meet even their basic, survival needs,” said Jack Burch, executive director of the Community Action Council. Aside from making people aware of how many people in our community are dealing with issues that stem from living on incomes that fall below the federal poverty guidelines, the event has a more subtle educational aspect – it offers facts to replace erroneous ideas and images. The Poverty Forum, while supported by private contributions, is not a fundraiser for the Community Action Council. Burch said that its purpose is informational. If any revenue remains above the costs of the event, the surplus is added to oper ating funds, so as to serve more people in need. To purchase tickets, visit or call (859) 244-2247.

Alltech’s soon-to-open distillery added to state’s bourbon trail

Personal training, massage, acupuncture, rehab therapy and more. Work out with the best, at the best. Call us for a tour and free session.

When Alltech opens its new distillery at the end of September, not only will it be the first new distillery built in Lexington in more than a century , it will also join the “trail� of one of Kentucky’s signature industries. Opening September 28th with tours starting October 1st, Alltech’s Downtown Distillery will be the home of Town Branch Bourbon and Lyons Reserve, a single malt whiskey. It will also mark the first time a new city has been added to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail since it was formed in 1999 by the Kentucky Distillers Association. With the distinction Lexington joins Lawrenceburg (Four Roses and Wild Turkey), Bardstown (Heaven Hill), Clermont (Jim Beam), Loretto (Maker’s Mark) and Versailles (Woodford Reserve) as cities along the popular tourist draw. In the past five years, more than 2 million visitors have toured the trail, and last year nearly 12,000 visited each of the six member distilleries. The addition of Town Branch’s home makes Lexington the first urban area to join the tour. “Any time the second city in the state can pull one on the major city, I guess that’s always good for competition,� Alltech’s Founder and CEO Dr. Pearse Lyons said in a nod to Louisville, which has made a push in recent years for “urban bourbon.� “It’s the only distillery in the middle of a city and I think that’s going to speak volumes. That means people can walk from the Hyatt or the downtown Hilton, they can walk over here and see the distillery and get a feel for what whisk ey is all about,� Lyons said. Visitors along the Bourbon Trail are given a passport for each of the soon-to-be seven distilleries to stamp upon competition of a tour. Once all distilleries have been visited, the passport is redeemable for a Bourbon Trail t-shirt featuring silhouettes of each distillery’s bourbon bottle. “When you broke ground, I remember a comment you made,� Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau President Jim Browder said to Lyons during a press conference, “you hoped tourists would come. All I have to say is: ‘hold on.’� – ERIK A. CARLSON

Updates on significant 5th District projects BY BILL FARMER, JR. 5TH DISTRICT COUNCIL


hat follows is an update from Craig Avery of Avery Consulting, LLC, project manager for the Southland Christian Church Richmond Road Campus development: Construction of the church’s new Richmond Road campus is rounding the turn and headed for the home stretch. Most that has occurred up to this point is work inside the old Dillard’s building and the new auditorium. Construction is going at a frantic pace, with about 80 workers onsite each day. Southland is a few weeks behind their original construction schedule, but they are still planning for the first services to take place on Jan. 5 and 6 next year. If you’ve driven around the building, you might have noticed the “skin” that covered the old Dillard’s stone façade. As of press time, installation of the glass front to the buildings, which will make a dramatic change to the building’s appearance, is underway. Construction is also beginning to focus on the parking lots

and the pond. When this starts, there will be lots of construction traffic and more workers onsite. All parking lots will be repaved, about 330 trees will be installed and pond construction will begin. Earlier this summer, the front access road was closed in preparation for the pond reconfiguration that was approved by the Planning Commission and others within LFUCG. Southland expects the road to be closed until mid November or mid December. Around the pond, Southland has installed a fence and screening for safety. When they performed pumping tests in the pond a couple of months ago, there were several near accidents on Richmond Road as folks were watching the construction rather than the road and traffic signals. They concluded the safest thing to do would be to put up a screen on the fence in hopes commuters would not be distracted by the construction. Southland asks that you stay tuned. “The most dramatic changes to the property are yet to come,” Avery said. “We hope you will be pleased.”

Tates Creek Road Sidewalks The sidewalks on Tates Creek Road will be built – but on a drastically different schedule than originally imagined. Since 80 percent of the funds for the project are federal funds, we have to perform to a federal level of diligence. Essentially, to qualify for the grant funds, all of the rights-ofway must be obtained and legally completed before the project begins. The first obstacle for this project was not having enough personnel to complete those acquisitions in a timely manner. The added public meetings and input surfaced the need for crosswalk signals at each Tates Creek intersection. When the sidewalks are built, those signals will be added.

Currently, the intersection of Lansdowne Drive and Tates Creek Road has caused the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) to add additional funding to replace the aging traffic signals in that intersection. The positioning of the signal bases will be changed and new cross arms installed. When the design work is complete, we will submit the entire package to the KYTC for a go-ahead and for funding to the fullest extent possible. You will first notice utility movement and upgrading followed by landscaping and decorative retaining walls where needed. With luck, the sidewalks will be all done in the spring and we will celebrate its opening with great fanfare.

olunteers from the Ashland Park Neighborhood Association (APNA) have banded together on a beautification project at the intersection of South Ashland Avenue and High Street, which has brought an attractively landscaped plot and freshly painted traffic electric box to the southwest corner. In August neighbors got together to first paint the traffic box Keeneland green with a special “anti-graffiti” paint, said APNA President Tony Chamblin, and later landscape the area around the box within the city right-of-way. He said according to 5th District Council Member Bill Farmer, Jr.’s office, this was the first such initiative of its kind between a neighborhood association and the city, and the project took more than a year to receive final approval from various government offices. “It was a really long, involved process,” Chamblin said. “There was a certain amount of bureaucracy involved, but we finally succeeded.” Ashland Park neighbor Bill Henkel, owner of the landscape design firm HenkelDenmark, provided the design plan at no cost the organization, and Lisa Myers, who had the original idea for the project, will coordinate volunteers who will be responsible for the maintenance. Myers has also been responsible for collecting donations from neighbors to help fund the project. Chamblin said if the organization can secure the funding, they would like to see the corner on the opposite side of the street receive similar treatment, and that they would be happy to share their insights with other neighborhood associations that might be interested in a similar endeavor in their part of town. “Anything that’s going to beautify the city, certainly that’s something that we would favor and we would be glad to share with anybody the process,” he said.

dmit it. You might not have known that a Civil War battle was fought in the heart of Chevy Chase. It occurred behind Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate, in the vicinity of present-day Ashwood Road and Fincastle Road, on Oct. 18, 1862. It is called the Battle of Ashland. Though officially, some historians label it an “action,” which is a little smaller than a battle. The 15-minute shootout on the 600acre estate took several lives on each side. Some members of Henry Clay’s family observed the clash from the second floor windows of the mansion. “You had two battalions of Union cavalry from Ohio bivouacked behind Ashland. They were attacked by a whole regiment and two battalions of Confederate cavalry,” said Kent Masterson Brown, a Lexington Civil War historian, film maker and

chevy chaser magazine september 2012

attorney. “The confederates were (General John Hunt Morgan’s) men and were commanded by Basil Duke, Morgan’s brother-in-law.” “The Union force was absolutely swallowed up,” Brown continued, in recalling the battle. “In addition, those Ohioans not camped at Ashland were captured at their campsite in the courthouse yard in downtown Lexington. Some of their officers were staying at the Phoenix Hotel. Every one of the captured Union troops was ‘paroled’ on the steps of Henry Clay’s home.” The battle will be commemorated with a living histitory event at Ashland on Sept. 29, as well as at other scheduled events (see sidebar). Remarkably, as Brown explained, the captured Union officers signed a statement guaranteeing that their surrendered soldiers Union troops Jacob Wentzel would not take up arms again until they were exchanged for conand John Myers federate prisoners – sort of a gentleman’s agreement. were attacked All of this action unfolded within a few blocks of the presentby Confederate day Ashland mansion. A historic marker there tells the story. “Most general John of the Confederates were fellas from around here,” Brown added. Hunt Morgan “These were ancestors of a heck of a lot of people still living here.” during the Battle of The living history day will try to reconnect people with a long Ashland. ago and mostly forgotten time in the heart of Lexington. “We’ll have military re-enactors, cavalry demonstrators, artillery PHOTO firing, infantry, a medical unit; civilians will do spinning, quilting, FURNISHED knitting, and there will be some farm animals – all on the estate’s 17 acres,” said Eric Brooks, Ashland’s curator. “We’ll have actors portraying Henry Clay, Lotty Dupuy (a slave who cared for Clay’s children and grandchildren), and John Hunt Morgan and his wife.” Ashland also will partner with the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra to present Itzhak Perlman, the Israeli-born violinist, who has agreed to perform in Lexington as part of Ashland’s Civil War Commemoration and symphony orchestra’s season opening concert. He is regarded as one of the Ashland, preeminent violinists of our time. Christina Bell, Ashland’s director of development, and UKSO The Henry Clay Conductor John Nardolillo are thrilled to land Estate Civil War Perlman. Commemoration “We annually award the Henry Clay Medallion to someone who exemplifies the ideals of Clay, Civil War Living History 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Sept. 29 who history counts as one of our nation’s greatest Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate statesmen. As part of this concert event, The Henry (120 Sycamore Rd.)

Perlman will perform Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto,” and the orchestra will also perform Dvorak’s “Symphony No. 9 From the New World,” which the Czech composer wrote during his visit to the United States in 1893. The Civil War ball will be at Christ Church Itzhak Perlman with UK Cathedral.

TOWN HOUSE, COUNTRY HOUSE Located in an unexpected cul-de-sac tucked just off of Chinoe Drive in the Warrenton Woods neighborhood, this unique contemporary home built in 1979 is considered by its owners to be their “country house in the city.�

BY SARAYA BREWER CHEVY CHASER MAGAZINE urrounded by a mature tree canopy, a babbling stream that flows under the home’s living room during wetter months, natural stone hardscaping, and multi-level decks and walkways that play off of the natural slope of the ground, the property gives off a sense of being miles outside the city, even though it is located minutes from New Circle Road. With the residential habitat relying heavily on the natural landscape, the property is reminiscent of the “organic architecture” concept made famous by architect Frank Lloyd Wright – or, on a more local level, the work of the late Lexington architect Richard Isenhour, who designed a neighboring home on the street.

homeowners to preserve as much of the natural canopy as possible. “We knew when we moved in that one of the ideas of moving into a place like this was to be a good steward of the property,” the homeowners said. “The house was built in a way to try to preserve as many of the trees as possible – not just here, but in the rest of the neighborhood as well.” Deferring to the natural landscape appears to be a very intentional move on the part of the original developers, according to architect Clive Pohl, who has worked with the homeowners on a “piece by piece makeover” alongside his partners at Pohl Rosa Pohl, with much of the local contracting work coming from Jim Smith at Showplace. “There is kind of a modern sensibility back there that’s not present in a lot

“There’s a little bit of a wildness to it,” the homeowners said. “We’re trying to preserve that idea and not make it look too over-cultivated.” To that end, the owners have worked closely with a handful of different landscape experts since they bought the home, including John Michler, who has helped incorporate lots of hostas and other native plants; Mark Arnold of M2D Design Group, who has helped oversee much of the stone work on the property; Scott Campbell of Scott Campbell Designs, who oversaw much of the hardscaping and backyard makeover; and Dave Leonard of Dave Leonard Tree Specialists, who has worked with the

of Lexington,” Pohl said of the neighborhood. “And a lot of what (the homeowners) chose to do is in keeping with that original idea.” Pohl and his business partner Graham Pohl, an architect at the firm, both agree that fully incorporating the natural landscape into the home’s design may not have been entirely realized by the home’s original builders, however. “The curb appeal of the house was minimal (when the current homeowners purchased the home) because of the way the entry had been treated,” said Graham Pohl, referring to an entry that is now marked by an elegant wood and steel bridge that creates a sleek and harmo-

nious path straight across the natural slope of the yard to the front porch and door. The original path to the door, which consisted of a series of zig-zagging rectangle decks, was largely damaged by the 2003 ice storm just months after the homeowners moved in – providing them with an impetus to put the remodel vision that they had already started concocting with Pohl Rosa Pohl on the front burner. Another key element of the remodel was the detached screened-in back porch, where the homeowners spend a significant amount of their time. Situated in the middle of a sloping backyard that the couple and their landscapers have worked hard to recover from infestation of honeysuckle and other invasive plants, the porch “opens up in such a way that it captures the forest ... and makes you part of it,” said Clive Pohl, who designed the outdoor room. “It very deliberately departs from the geometry of the house,” he said, adding that situating the porch a couple of steps below the home’s main floor and rotating the angle from that of the house were intentional components to highlight that departure, contributing to a sense of arrival or destination once you

arrive at the outdoor room. The natural landscape of the backyard is brought inside the main floor of the home thanks in large part to a complete kitchen remodel also designed by Pohl Rosa Pohl (primarily a project of Krisia Rosa, another principal of the firm). Large panes of glass face the wooded backyard, inviting in the natural light and scenery, and a blend of wood, metal, granite and steel materials appeal to the couple’s aesthetic taste, which they say fancies contemporary design while straying from the austere. “The big challenge of the kitchen was to make it work in a two-story cathedral space and yet to have the sort of intimacy that you want in a gathering space,” said Pohl, referring to the vaulted ceiling of the kitchen, which gives way to the upstairs loft space. The architects responded to that challenge by suspending an oversized translucent panel with track lighting over the breakfast bar, which they refer to as “the cloud.” “The translucent cloud still allows you to perceive the big volume, but brings it down to a human scale,” said Pohl. “When you’re hanging out around the breakfast bar in the kitchen, there’s an intimacy that feels comfortable.”

ate summer and early fall gardens are wonderful. The asters and goldenrod are in bloom, the ornamental grasses start turning brown, and the goldfinches are perched on the coneflower seedheads. From my kitchen window I also see cardinal flower, great blue lobelia, turtlehead, iron weed, joe pye weed, silphium, blue sage, various rudbeckias, and so on. There is no shortage of fall flowers for the perennial border. And let’s not forget shrubs for fall color. Shrubs are so useful in the garden. They offer height, privacy, structure, form, and also they provide a great backdrop for a perennial border or structure within the perennial garden. There are many that also dress up in festive autumnal colors, some with splashy berries. Let me introduce you to some of them. Here is a great plant that does well through summer drought, heat and humidity. ‘Gro-Low’ fragrant sumac (Rhus ar omatica ‘Gro-Low) is perfect for planting en masse to stabilize a sunny slope or where a taller groundcover is desired. It grows quickly to about two foot tall by six foot wide. Want it to be smaller? Just prune it back to three inches from the ground in the spring and by mid-summer it will have completely recovered. I like the rambling nature of this shrub and the fall color tends to be brilliant reddish-orange to scarlet.

chevy chaser magazine september 2012

Winterberry holly (Ilex verticillata ) cultivars come in many shapes and sizes. For much of the year they’re just plain filler shrubs, but in the fall, wow. The berries have real impact in the garden. ‘Red Sprite’, also known as ‘Nana’ or ‘Compacta’, has lots of very winter persistent red fruits and its smaller size (four foot tall and wide) makes it easy to use. ‘Shaver’ is very useful in landscape design due to its upright, compact form. It is slow growing to six foot tall by three foot wide. ‘Winter Red’ and ‘Winter Gold’ are larger with profuse quantities of berries. Hollies are dioecious, meaning that the female requires a nearby male in order to berry. Just get the right male, stick him somewhere behind the scenes and keep him pruned to a small size. Sorry, guys. Viburnums also are terrific shrubs. Spring blooms (some fragrant) are followed by berries and many have great fall leaf color. Consider vibur num nudum ‘Winterthur’, with its compact size of about six foot tall and wide and amazingly blue berries that pop against the intense maroon red fall leaves. V. nudum ‘Brandywine’ is known for its vivid pink and blue berries. ‘Eskimo’ viburnum is also rather compact; its leaves turn attractive shades of yellow, orange and red in fall. ‘Mohawk’ is larger with fragrant blooms and good fall color. Ar onia arbutifolia , red chokeberry, is an underutilized shrub with great characteristics. It is most readily available as the cultivar ‘Brilliantissima’, with showy spring flowers, large red berries and lovely fall color. It grows to seven foot tall and three foot wide, will take full sun to part shade and tolerates the clay soil so many of us have. I like A. melanocarpa , or black chokeberry, too, even though the black fruits are not as showy. The landscape value of blueberries is often overlooked as well. Highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum ) likes acidic soils, so give it some Hollytone or elemental sulphur in spring and fall. It will reward you with spring blooms, edible fruit (maybe just for the birds) and long-lasting fall color. Cross pollination tends to produce the best fruit crop, meaning it is best to plant a couple of cultivars if you wish to maximize fruit set. We mustn’t forget the much beloved oakleaf hydrangea. Hydrangea quer cifolia cultivars range from large (like ‘Snow Queen’ and ‘Alice’) to much smaller (‘Pee Wee’ and ‘Sike’s Dwarf’) They all have those large pyramidal panicles of white flowers, exfoliating bark and lobed, oak-like leaves. In the fall those leaves turn to shades of bronze, maroon and purple. This hydrangea flowers on old wood so, if you feel the need to prune, don’t wait until too late in the season or you will cut off next year’s blooms. Itea is becoming a popular plant, too. It is very versatile – sun or shade, and tolerates a wide variety of soil conditions and is drought tolerant. Itea vir g inica ‘Henry’s Garnet’ grows to about four foot tall and wide. ‘Little Henry’ is about half this size. Spring flowers form cylindrical white racemes that cover the plant. Fall colors are variations on a reddish theme. Fother gilla major and fother gilla gar denii (dwarf fothergilla) are also tough plants with excellent shade tolerance, though they also do well in full sun. It has a white spring bloom and excellent, rather cherry red, fall color. Enough of this red – how about yellow? Clethra alnifolia , lindera benzoin (spicebush), and Hamamelis vir g iniana (common witchhazel) all turn a striking yellow in the fall. Autumn is almost upon us. The end of summer, but definitely not the end of a beautiful landscape. Fall can compete with any season for Dwarf fothergilla is beauty in the garden. another colorful shrub come autumn.

Piggy banking on a new bus shelter

Distinctive Goods for the Sporting Lifestyle


A new planned bus shelter, a project from the Columbia Heights Neighborhood Association called “Bank Stop,” incorporates whimsical monetary motifs in its design.

119 Clay Avenue, Lexington, KY 40502 859-389-6552 •


t’s been a long time in the making, but Kate Savage, an active member of the Columbia Heights Neighborhood Association, has all of the pieces in place to begin raising money to fund the construction of a bus shelter along Euclid Avenue. Partnering with Lextran and representatives from Republic Bank, who have allowed for the shelter to be built on their branch’s property across from Kroger, Savage estimates the project will cost between $25,000 – $30,000. In June of last year, Savage was awarded an EcoART grant from the city for $5,000 which will go toward the construction cost, and she plans on raising the rest of the money through Kickstarter, an online crowd-sourcing platform, and “blatant solicitation.” Akin to Art in Motion’s Art Stops, creatively conceived bus shelters that have appeared in a number of places in Lexington, though not affiliated with that organization, the structure Savage hopes to have constructed was designed specifically with a bank in mind – with a large piggy bank in the back and other aspects being to scale of a dollar bill. Patrick Morgan, an architecture student at University of Pennsylvania and Lexington native, as well as a longtime family friend of Savage, orchestrated the whimsical design. “It was fun,” he said. “I’d be at school and everybody else would be working on their big studio project, and I’m sitting at my desk with a little piggy bank on my screen.” Given the number of people who wait for buses at the two bus stops, exposed to the elements, near the corner of Euclid and Ashland avenues, the need for an appropriate shelter in the area has always been obvious, Savage said. She initially approached the property owners of Premiere Home Video, but when they weren’t receptive to the project, she pitched the idea to both banks across the street. Representatives at Republic Bank were immediately open to the idea, and contracts and plans with Lextran to have the bus shelter built along the hedge between the sidewalk and the parking lot were put into place – welcome news for somebody who has been working for over a year trying to see this neighborhood amenity through to fruition. “This has been like giving birth,” Savage laughed, “but it really has been harder, and longer.” Visit this story online at www.chevychaser Kickstarter page, or sear ch for the pr

ammers pounded, drills turned and tables were being jostled all about. Three men sat in the middle of it all, seemingly oblivious to the organized chaos surrounding them. After all, starting a new business — especially one with a fastapproaching grand opening — takes time. But they spoke calmly and positively about Glenn’s Creek Brewery, a new addition to the Chevy Chase area that has a planned early-September launch date. They know in this evolving section of Lexington their business model will fill an otherwise vacant niche: a boutique brewpub that serves American pub-fare food. Completion of the project will deliver the trio access to a key demographic, the many young professionals who have settled into the adjacent Ashland and Chevy Chase neighborhoods. The group already owns TBar further down Euclid Avenue — which provides direct contact with nearby University of Kentucky and its students — as well as Glenn’s Creek BBQ near Versailles, which serves as a conduit to a more rural market. If successful in Chevy Chase, that’s three powerful groups from which to draw revenue. Perhaps that’s why the three men were able to joke and smile knowingly to one another about the escalating investment involved with getting the brewpub off the ground. “The figures aren’t all the way in yet,” said Brett Rowlett, who is partnered with Bob Douglas and T.J. Gordon as owners of Glenn’s Creek Brewery, “but it was a significant expense.” Though those final totals are unavailable, what is known is the trio is trying to turn around the fortunes of an otherwise prime location that’s been a Lexington hotspot for decades. Bill Farmer Jr., owner of Farmer’s Jewelry just a few doors down, remembers the Saratoga restaurant in the same location when his father opened the jewelry store in 1950. The spot then changed hands about a decade ago into Roy’s East High Diner before becoming Buddy’s, which enjoyed initial success. The spot became available last fall when Buddy’s closed in early October, and all agreed it was a prime location. “It’s exciting. If you go back a little more than a year ago, you’ve had a dozen businesses open up in this area. There’s still a part of Lexington that comes here and through here,” said Farmer, who is also the city’s 5th District Councilmember. “And as far as Glenn’s Creek Brewery, people have been going to that spot for 60 years. What they’re bringing is a nice addition to this neighborhood, one that it will cater to a good demographic and draw on a younger crowd.” The adjusted business plan will eventually see Glenn’s Creek Brewery serving 180 different bottled beers and 32 variations on tap along with a variety of cocktails and selections of wine. The menu will feature traditional American food such as various sandwiches and side items, as well as, of course, barbecue. New tables were added and existing ones were resurfaced with Kentucky barn wood, while parts of the walls and ceiling were altered to deliver a rustic feel. Renovations to the space have created a few changes to its layout, allowing for a separate play room with a pool table as well as the insertion of front windows that open toward the street and patio area, along with the addition of two more bar areas. Though they can’t make the beer onsite, plans are in development for a brewery to open in Woodford County near their barbecue restaurant at the start of 2013. It’s all part of a plan to develop the Glenn’s Creek brand. The namesake comes from the first source of water for distilled spirits in Kentucky. “The craft beer industry has grown 5 to 7 percent per year in the United States over the past decade or so,” Douglas said. “We want to have a product that’s high quality and brands ourselves.”

elanie Williams takes pride in ownership. Eleven years ago, she purchased The Black Market Boutique at the age of 26 from original owner Susan Creacy, who started the shop in 1989 at a small storefront on Church Street. Creacy relocated the shop several times before landing in the center of the Woodland Triangle shopping district, which, at the time, was just becoming a destination for locally owned retail. Creacy’s original vision for the store – which also housed a Guatemalan wholesale business for many years with then-business partner Theresa Hendricks, who now owns Lucia’s Imports – focused heavily on import clothing, sterling silver jewelry and gift items. Williams has preserved and expanded the funky and eclectic boutique – and as of this summer, she now owns the century-old building in Woodland Triangle that houses her store.

chevy chaser magazine september 2012

“I bought the building to protect my business,” said Williams, now 37, “because I love my store.” Falling in love with a retail shop was not something the Paducah native had planned. She was enrolled at the University of Kentucky and studying for a career in chiropractic medicine when the passion for retail hit. Williams was at Black Market Imports, looking for a pair of earrings for her mother, when she overheard Creacy say that the store was for sale. “My heart just started pounding,” remembers Williams. “Literally, for a week, I could not stop thinking about it.” She made the decision to drop out of college and purchase the business. The problem? She didn’t have any money. Williams did her best to obtain a loan, but at such a young age she had nothing to offer up as collateral. “It just wasn’t happening,” she said. “I felt like there were many people saying, ‘There are better careers for you than this.’” Williams learned about a program for women entrepreneurs at Midway College. There, she sought out information on how to find a loan and discovered opportunities from both the mayor’s office and a high interest loan company. Within the year, Williams was the proud owner of the Black Market Boutique. “Every door that was closed made me even stronger, instead of beating me down,” she said. “I feel like passion prevailed.” The Black Market Boutique is “a little boutique with a lot of flair” that sells a unique variety of dresses, vintage, jewelry and men’s t-shirts. Originally, the store required only one rental space, but six years after being in business, Williams decided to expand, taking on an extra rental unit next door. The fact that the store required two units worried Williams when the building went up for sale in 2012. In addition to the two units used for the Black Market Boutique, the building with store fronts along Maxwell and High street houses Calypso boutique and Hairport salon, as well as four apartment units. “If someone were to have bought the building,” Williams said, “they could have said, ‘Okay, we’re going to raise rent by $300.’ My business would have been hit twice because I was using two spaces.” Relocating wasn’t an option, as Williams has always loved the area. “I feel Woodland Triangle is unique,” she said. “Right next door, we have the skate shop and the skate park. Then we have the yarn store, two amazing bookstores, the bike shop, Lucia’s, Ramsey’s and the pie shop ... there’s just such a diversity in this area.” Not only was Williams invested in the area, she’d also invested major time and money renovating her rental space over the years. These renovations included both functional and aesthetic changes, such as textured concrete floors, off-white ceilings, track lighting, and custom-built, wooden dressing rooms. Faced with an uncertain future, Williams made the decision to buy the building. Finding the money for the down payment was a challenge. After unsuccessful attempts to secure a loan to cover that cost, she finally opted to use the savings from the sale of her home and a loan from a family friend to close the deal. Today, Williams is proud of all that she’s accomplished and the evolution of her journey. “So many elements over the years played out to get me to this point,” Williams said. “If I hadn’t sold my home, I wouldn’t have been able to buy the building. It was the natural progression of how things were supposed to be.” One thing Williams has learned from her experience is the importance of tenacity and hard work. “Don’t let the corporate world tell you no,” she said. “I’m doing what I love but I was willing to work three times as hard to get it.” Today, the shop owner and now-landlord is looking forward to many happy years in Woodland Triangle and she hopes that shoppers will continue to take advantage of this unique part of Lexington. “Shopping local boutiques is what I consider retail therapy,” Williams said. “In Woodland Triangle, the store owners are invested, the store’s employees care about you. Ultimately, the experience of shopping local is priceless.”

Noted printmaker and portraitist Victor Karl Hammer (b. 1882, Austria) served as artist- in-residence at Transylvania University from 1948-53. His presence in the Lexington community resulted in a vibr ant small press industry and created a fertile ground for a new generation of printmakers in the Bluegrass. “Victor’s Legacy” exhibits the work of Lexington’s printers, those who were directly descended from Hammer to nascent printmakers who have benefitted from Lexington’s rich printmaking history.

rirang Garden is one of only a small handful of Korean dining options in Lexington. Tucked just off of Richmond and Mount Tabor Road, Arirang Garden has a surprisingly large dining room, which my guest and I had the run of on a quiet Tuesday evening. What most people unfamiliar with the restaurant will find perplexing on their first visit are the shiny steel grills embedded in the center of the tables. Arirang Garden is an authentic Korean barbecue restaurant, and depending on what your party orders from the menu, you may find yourself playing grill master for the evening. The menu includes about a dozen “gui” dishes – a generic Korean term for grilled food – with beef, chicken, pork, seafood and combination options, that diners can prepare to their liking at the table (but only so long as two or more dishes from this section of the menu are ordered, my guest and I regrettably discovered after only ordering one, which they cooked for us before delivering to the table). Highlights include “bul go ki” (thinly sliced, marinated beef), “kalbee” (beef

ribs) and “dae ji gui” (marinated pork); there were also some beef tongue and pork belly lurking on the pages, and all of the BBQ options are priced between $16 – 19 (except for the combination dinners for two). And while the BBQ selections probably steal the show, the rest of the menu is chock-full of traditional Korean staples, with a wide selection of appetizers, soups, and rice and noodle dishes (which the chef prepares for your table). Many options here caught my attention, including the “hae mool tang” (a spicy seafood soup), the “chop chae” (a noodle dish with veggies and shredded meat) and the “dolsot bop” (a rice dish with veggies, beef and raw egg served in a piping hot lava rock bowl). Most of these dishes cost between $10 – 13. Before dinner we ordered some fried Korean dumplings for an appetizer, which also come steamed if you prefer. For our main course, my guest and I split an order of the “dae ji gui” from the Korean BBQ menu and the “dolsot bop” from the rice options. Though we were initially disappointed we didn’t get a chance to try our skills on the grill, in the end it worked out for the best, as the mound of spicy pork was delicious and more

than ample – we didn’t achieve entrance into the clean plate club this outing. The dish came accompanied by a slew of side dishes, including kimchee, bean sprouts, fried tofu and a radish salad. We Arirang Garden were both familiar with the 109 Mount Tabor Rd. rice dish we ordered and (859) 269-8273 were interested in tasting Arirang Garden’s version of Lunch: 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. “dolsot bop.” It was tasty and Tues. – Fri. heaping as well. Both of Dinner: 5 - 9:30 p.m. these entrees could easily Tues. – Fri. have been split between two 11 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. people. Sat. – Sun. Arirang Garden also has a number of domestic and Asian beers, such as Asahi, Sapporo and OB (Oriental Brewery in South Korea), as well as bottles of warm and cold sakis, soju, and fruit wines. Our bill, prior to tipping, came to $62.91 and included an appetizer, two entrees, and a few adult beverages.

oor Goetta. It tends to get a bad rap in the food world. Unlike the gastronomical praises of confit, pates, dried sausages and cured meats, goetta has a rather unsavory reputation. Where’s the love for this beloved Cincinnati charcuterie? The history of goetta – a blend of steel cut oats and ground meat (pork, beef or a mixture of both) – hails from the German settlers to the Cincinnati area in the early 19th century. “Goetta is actually not really German at all, but rather GermanAmerican, thus its popularity in the upper Midwest where many Germans settled in America,” said popular German chef Walter Staib, host of “Taste of History” on PBS. “It’s a frugal means of using an entire animal and making it go a bit further by adding oats or some filling to it, stemming from the traditional sausage making methods.” Although goetta is typically celebrated as Cincinnati fare, its origins are long steeped in Kentucky’s history. Gliers Goetta, the most recognizable name in the industry, was founded by the Glier family just across the river from Cincinnati in northern Kentucky. Longtime president Bob Glier was a graduate of EKU, and Bob’s son David graduated from NKU and is the third generation to carry on the goetta goodness. Goettafest, held each August, draws tens of thousands to the streets of MainStrasse Village in Covington for a Goetta smorgasbord like none other. Pizza, burgers, wraps, meatballs and even fudge are not exempt from being given a goetta makeover. Locally, you can order a crispy patty at Josie’s Diner in Chevy Chase and each October Glier’s sets up shop in the Incredible Food Show at Rupp Arena to educate and welcome a whole new crop of goetta fans. Although it isn’t too hard to come by in Lexington grocery stores, there’s nothing quite like homemade goetta. Traditionally, it’s made from pork parts not typically found, let’s say, at a barbeque, to put it nicely. Most online recipes for homemade goetta are more user friendly, substituting pork parts for readily available ground pork. This recipe calls for country spare ribs, a happy medium between the two. Homemade goetta is a fairly easy, albeit time consuming endeavor. A lazy Sunday afternoon is a perfect excuse to make a batch, which should provide you with enough goetta to host quite a bountiful Goettafest of your own for Sunday dinner.


Homemade Goetta (adapted from Man Tested Recipes Ingredients: • 2-3 pounds country-style pork ribs • 8 cups water • 2 1/2 cups steel-cut oatmeal • 20-plus bay leaves • 1 1/2 large onions, quartered • 2 teaspoons salt • 2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper Preparation: 1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. 2. In a 4-quart Dutch oven (or heavy pot with a tight fitting lid), gently boil the pork in 8 cups water with 10 of the bay leaves for about 15 minutes, until pork is cooked through. 3. Cool and remove pork, discard bay leaves. You want to keep the liquid, but strain it for any pork or bay leaves left. 4. Add salt and pepper, 10 new bay leaves, and the oatmeal to the liquid. Bring to a rolling boil on the stove and boil for 10 minutes . 5. Finely grind 1 onion in a food processor (or finely chop by hand) and add to oats . Cover and place in oven. It will bake there for an hour, until oats are fully cooked. 6. In a food processor or mill, grind the cooked pork (with all the fat) and reserve. 7. After 1 hour, the oatmeal will be thick and glistening from the fat. Stir in all the ground pork and the remaining chopped onions. 8. Cool and pack into loaf pans (rap the loaf

pans on the counter a few times to mak e sure the goetta is firmly packed into the loaf pan with no air or space.) Chill for at least 1 hour (or overnight) and slice into 1/4-inch pieces; fry slices on a hot griddle or cast iron skillet with oil or bacon grease until golden brown. Makes 2 loaves.

Huevos Rancheros with Goetta Refried Beans Thanks to goetta’s diversity and especially its association with breakfast fare, it serves as a great addition to even a delicious Mexican-inspired breakfast. Here, goetta is sliced and placed on top of refried beans. It could easily be fried, crumbled and mixed into the beans, much like chorizo.

To assemble: Place a tablespoon of salsa on a tortilla. Top with fried eggs. Top eggs with another spoonful of salsa. Add refried beans to side of plate. Place strips of goetta on top of the beans. Top eggs, beans and goetta with shredded pepper jack cheese, scallions, cilantro and a drizzle of the crema or sour cream. Serve immediately. Serves four.

Ingredients: • 1 can refried beans (or homemade, if you like) adventurous) • 4 slices of goetta • 8 corn tortillas • 2 cups salsa • Vegetable oil (for frying) • 8 eggs • 1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded • 2 scallions, chopped • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro • 1/2 cup Mexican Crema or sour cream Method: 1. In a small saucepan, heat refried beans until bubbly and hot. On a griddle or in a cast iron skillet, fry goetta until crisp. Set both aside. 2. Cover bottom of a medium frying pan with vegetable oil, bring to 340 degrees over medium heat. Working one at a time, quickly fry each tortilla, about two seconds per side. Drain tortillas on paper towels, place two tortillas on each plate, and put in a 200 degree oven to k eep warm. 3. Fry two eggs at a time until cooked over-easy, with soft yolks. Keep finished eggs warm in oven as you continue cooking.

• 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce • Jalapeño relish (optional) Method: 1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Place rye squares on a baking sheet, spaced evenly apart. 2. In large skillet, cook goetta over medium high heat until evenly browned and crisp. 3. Add Worcestershire sauce and cubed cheese over crisped goetta, allowing it to melt, stirring occasionally. 4. Once melted and mixed well, spoon a generous amount on each rye square. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned on top. 5. Remove and cool slightly. Top with a small spoonful of jalapeño relish, if desired, and enjoy.

White Chedda’ Goetta Burger

Contact studio for fun events happening on Sept. 6th - Sept. 27th

The key to great goetta is getting a crispy crunch on the outside. Whether eating it as an accompaniment to eggs and toast or as the star feature on a hamburger bun, crispiness is key. Makes 1 burger.

Goetta Hanky Pankies Hanky Pankies, a party appetizer made by topping rye bread squares with melted Velveeta cheese and sausage crumbles, have been a staple at parties, tailgating events and outdoor gettogethers for decades. Say auf wiedersehen to sausage though, and guten tag to goetta in this tasty adaptation. Ingredients: • 1 pound goetta • 1 (8 ounce) package processed cheese (Velvetta), cubed • 1 package rye bread squares

Let’s Celebrate

Ingredients: • 2 slices of goetta, fried crisp (half inch to an inch thick) • Good quality white cheddar cheese • Hamburger toppings (lettuce, tomato, onion) • Hamburger bun This is a pretty self-explanatory recipe. The key, again, is a crisp outer coating on the goetta achieved only with a hot skillet and a bit of bacon grease or oil. Let it sizzle for at least 4-5 minutes on each side. Place the cheese on each slice of finished goetta and get busy building one incredible chedda’ goetta burger.

On the Right Snack These recipes will really make young students look forward to the end of the school day BY MEGAN SMITH | HOMEMAKING COLUMNIST


oritos, grilled cheese, Little Debbie snacks, bologna on saltines, Fruity Pebbles, Pizza Rolls and SpaghettiO’s. Bring back any mid-September, 3 p.m., junior high school memories? Ah yes, it’s coming back, right? I’m talking about the highly anticipated after school snack. When I asked Facebook friends their favorite childhood after school snack, I was inundated with over two dozen enthusiastic, reminiscent responses. Some, I’ve mentioned below, and nearly all were unhealthy, processed, but oh-so-nostalgic treats. As a mom of three boys, two of which are now school aged, daily I don snack chef hat. This is a tall order and, if I’m honest, one that I fail at quite often. Twenty years ago, Pizza Rolls were considered a perfect after school snack option – one that I routinely devoured as a pre-teen. But as many of us have come to learn either by choice or osmosis in recent years, these brightly packaged foods probably aren’t the best form of sustenance and nutrition, especially for growing bodies. Clearly, children should be content with a banana and glass of water after school, right? Unfortunately not. A kid’s day is long – many heading out the door by 7 a.m. or earlier and with lunchtimes ending before noon.

Your water bill’s about to...

Homemade Pizza Rolls Ingredients: • 2 sheets of puffed pastry, defrosted Or 1 refrigerated roll of pizza crust (or homemade, if you are so inclined) • 6 tbsp pizza sauce • 2 tsp Italian herbs • 4 slices of ham, diced • 2 cup grated pizza cheese


Method: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking tray with foil or parchment paper and set aside. 2. Spread puff pastry sheet or pizza dough with pizza sauce, sprinkle with Italian herbs

and diced ham. Spread the pizza cheese over the top. 3. Roll tightly into a scroll and slice the scroll evenly into 12 pieces. 4. Place on tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until bubbly and cooked through.

Apple Nachos

• 1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

I love this food concoction. It requires no baking, and it is visually both fun and colorful. It’s nutritious and definitely a winner with kids. (Adapted from, pictured on previous page.) Ingredients: • 3 crispy and slightly tart apples • 1 tsp lemon juice • 3 tbsp peanut butter • 1/4 cup sliced almonds • 1/4 cup pecans

Brownie Bites These couldn’t be simpler and take the place of a pre-packaged sweet snack. Make a couple of batches, mixing flavors to your tastes and keep them stored in the freezer. An hour before school ends, take them out of the freezer and let them defrost on a plate. Serve a couple of these brownies with veggie sticks and hummus for a well-rounded after school snack. Ingredients: • 1 c. butter • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate • 1 2/3 c. sugar • 4 large eggs • 2 tsp. vanilla • 3/4 tsp. baking powder • 1 tsp. salt • 1 3/4 c. flour • 2/3 c. chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)

Method: 1. Slice the apples thin enough for easy eating. Rub each apple with just a bit of lemon juice to keep them from browning. Place on a large plate, piling the apple slices like chips. 2. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for 20 seconds or until runny. Drizzle over the apples. Top the apples and peanut butter with coconut, sliced almonds, a few pecans and, of course, chocolate chips.

Method: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. 2. In a heavy large saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring as it gets smooth. Remove from heat and cool. 3. Stir in sugar, vanilla and eggs and mix well. 4. Add in flour, salt and baking powder and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. 5. Pour batter evenly into the muffin pan. Top with an assortment of flavors (see below) and bake for 18-20 minutes or until just a few brownie crumbs stick to a toothpick. Cool, remove from pan and enjoy. Mix-in ideas: • Strawberry slices • Banana • Peanut Butter • Walnuts • Blueberries • Cooked and crumbled bacon

That’s right. Split. Same fees. No increase. Just two bills. One from Kentucky American Water just for water. And one from our city for basic services we use every day. Kentucky American made a decision to discontinue billing city services as of September. So this month, look for a bill from LEXserv – our city’s new billing program for sanitary sewers, water quality management and landfill. LEXserv fees will pay for three basic city services that used to be on your water bill: Water quality which improves storm sewers to keep streams clean. Disposal of waste to landfills and keeping our sanitary sewer system working.

LAKSHMI SRIRAMAN Performer and choreographer; founder and instructor at Shree School of Dance

Chevy Chase

| 316 S. Ashland | 859.266.6420



t its most basic, dance is a relationship between movement, space and time. But for professional dancer Lakshmi Sriraman, founder of Lexington’s Shree School of Dance and one of the most recent additions to the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Arts Directory, dance is much more than that. “You feel a music and you let it just seep into you, every cell of you, into your soul, and it just bursts out as movement,” said Sriraman, one of a handful of dancers in Kentucky with a professional emphasis on the traditional Indian dance form known as Bharatanatyam. She explained that much of her work over the past four or five years has centered on education and increasing the awareness about that particular form of dance. “When you say ‘India’ and ‘dance,’ the first thing that comes to everybody’s mind is Bollywood dance,” said Sriraman, who moved to Lexington in 2005. “I love Bollywood dance – it’s great entertainment. But (the experience that) classical dance provides is very different. It’s a very involved sense of movement, and it’s also spiritual by it’s very nature.” Bharatanatyam dance relies heavily on the Natya Shastra, a highly detailed document dating back to 200 B.C. which Sriraman refers to as “the bible for all performing arts in India.” The treatise outlines precise details of the art form, ranging from stage set-up to hand, neck and eye movement. “(The Natya Shastra) provides a vocabulary, and we use a vocabulary based on what it is that we want to express,” she said. She added that while she works to preserve the “purity and tradition of the moves themselves,” the ultimate expression of the traditional dance form has changed over the years as it has evolved from a ritualistic temple art to a form of entertainment geared toward a more general audience. “It’s not that we are dancing the same dance that we did 2,000 years ago, but we are using the same codified gestures and moves. ... The format of the program has changed, because you’re wanting to please the sensibilities of the audience.” To that end, Sriraman often incorporates modern elements, including spoken


chevy chaser magazine september 2012

word poetry and more modern music, into her performances. While she considers her dance to be, in large part, a window to traditional Indian heritage and culture, Sriraman says she is primarily concerned with creating a portal where she can engage with her audience to create a unique experience. Where theatre actors often work to create a “fourth wall” – i.e., an imagined boundary between performer and audience – Sriraman finds herself working in each performance to break that boundary down. “I consciously try to take away that wall and connect with (the audience) completely,” she said. “The Natya Shastra talks of how the purpose of performing arts is to create a response in the audience, the viewer – when you feel it, you feed it back to me and we create together.” Sriraman moved to the United States from India in 1994 to pursue her MBA, with a master’s degree in mathematics and science already under her belt. She spent a decade in a successful career as a management consultant with an HR management firm before the birth of her son in 2004 inspired her to give up the days of long hours and travel in order to more seriously pursue her lifelong passion of Indian dance. She landed an intensive apprenticeship with Smt. Priyadarsini Govind, an award-winning Bharatanatyum dancer whom she had admired greatly in her early teens and 20s. “She was always my inspiration growing up,” Sriraman said of Govind, whom she first met while living in Atlanta in 2004. Govind had traveled there to give a workshop; the two “hit it off as people” and set up an apprenticeship that has had Sriraman traveling to India about once a year to study with Govind. One of Sriraman’s greatest joys as a dancer lies in teaching others, and she reaches around 30 – 40 students each Sunday at the Shree School of Dance, which she founded soon after moving to Lexington. While there are many historical and technical aspects that can be passed down from one generation to the next, she admits that there are some aspects of dance – which she lightly termed “soul-thetics,” in reference to the expression of something deep inside oneself – that dancers must find in themselves. “That cannot be choreographed. And you can’t teach that either,” she said. “You can talk about the end product and where the impulse will lie, but the process between that impulse and end product is a very personal journey.”

(Attempted) Murder Most Foul


Maxwell Place as it appeared prior to 1900. It was the site of a 1904 attempted poisoning of members of the Mulligan family (courtesy of the E.I. Thompson collection).



he sensational attempted murder of one of Lexington’s most prominent families gripped the community for weeks 108 years ago this month. To understand how prominent the Mulligans were requires the back story. Dennis Mulligan came to Kentucky in 1835 as a surveyor, and settled in Lexington. Soon he became one of the town’s leading citizens and a power in the Democratic Party. His store on the corner of Vine and Mulberry (now South Limestone) streets was the center of local politics. Mulligan’s wealth benefited the Catholic church, contributing to the construction of area churches and schools, and organizing Calvary Cemetery on West Main. His son James Hillary Mulligan easily rode to the top of the local and state political order, serving as judge of the Recorder’s Court – a title he retained for the rest of his life – as well as a state representative and senator. (James is best remembered today for his famous poem “In Kentucky” that ends with the oft-quoted line, “And the politics the damnedest in Kentucky.”)


chevy chaser magazine september 2012

At the close of the War Between the States, Dennis bought a 14-acre lot on Winslow Avenue (now Euclid) to prevent it from falling into the hands of speculators. The prominence of this acreage was the presence of three natural springs called Maxwell Springs, of which Henry Clay said, “No man can consider himself a gentleman until he has watered his horse at Maxwell Springs.” The springs were also a site for political rallies. Having seen Clay speak here when Mulligan was a child may have influenced his career. Dennis subsequently gave the land to his son James, the judge, who in 1870 built Maxwell Place (now the traditional home of the president of the University of Kentucky). Judge Mulligan and his wife, Mary Huston Mulligan, improved the property with gardens and flowering trees, and he began raising prized cattle and fine horses. Soon, four children – Louis, James, Mollie and Alice – added to their happiness. That happiness was shattered on April 10, 1876, when Mary died at age 28. The judge buried his grief in his law practice, while the servants took care of the children. Five years later, Mulligan took a second wife, the socially prominent Genevieve Morgan Williams of Nashville, a cousin of Gen. John Hunt Morgan, President John Tyler and Mary Anna Jackson – widow of the martyred Confederate general. Although the second marriage produced four more children (Dennis, Marion, Katherine and Willoughby), happiness did not return to Maxwell Place. But now we are getting ahead of the story. It happened on Saturday, Sept. 24, 1904, at midday dinner. First soup was served, followed by coffee. As servant Lewis Mitchell presented the serving platter with baked salmon to Mrs. Mulligan, he allegedly bent over and whispered, “Don’t take none of this; it’s doctored.” Dennis, who along with Katherine and Willoughby was seated with their mother, at first wanted to test the fish on the dogs. Bowing to objections, he had the fish sent to be tested at nearby State College (UK), where it was determined to have enough arsenic “to kill several people.” The police were called and Mitchell, a paroled murderer, was arrested. Mitchell was arraigned on Friday, Sept. 30, and try though he may, the judge could not prevent the Mulligan family secrets from being aired in public. Like the Todds before them, the Mulligan children were two families that did not get along with each other. Genevieve, upon marrying the judge, had sent the original four children off to boarding school; the judge was deaf to their pleas to come home. Even her own children were rarely happy under her charge, according to letters read in open court and printed on the front page of The Lexington Herald chronicling the dysfunctional family. Mollie had moved out of Maxwell Place after a fight with her father over a trip to Mammoth Cave (the judge did not approve of the young man she was seeing at the time; now her husband), and left home to live with her sister Alice and Alice’s husband. James Jr. had left for Chicago after another fight with his father, and once contemplated suicide “by jumping in the lake.” Mitchell, casually referred to as “the negro” in the not-so subtle racism of the time, did not help his own case at all. First he stated he had come to work in the morning and saw the icebox door open and the salmon on the counter. Later, he testified he had started to eat the salmon for lunch when he saw “a fine white powder, which looked like quinine sprinkled around it.” A third time, he claimed he saw a mysterious woman in men’s clothing “dodging about” the yard. Then Mitchell dropped a bombshell: James Jr. had offered him $100 to poison the judge. The younger James, it seems, had been in Lexington the day before the attempted poisoning, trying to arrange a meeting with his father. The judge refused, and James returned to Chicago. Under oath, James said he was angry with his stepmother and father because they were spending his mother’s money that rightfully was his and his siblings’. He said would “get even with certain persons.” Speculation was that the judge was the target all along. But when he did not return from downtown for the meal, Mitchell warned the other family members about the tainted fish. In the end, James was exonerated, and the jury was hung over Mitchell’s guilt. The cook? She was hardly noticed at all.

y first computer was purchased while I was at the university for the use of the counseling center. That had to be in the early ‘80s. I was dragged into the computer age almost kicking and screaming in my usual resistance to change. Of course, when I learned the convenience it provided, I grudgingly used it and when I left the university in 1985, I bought my own. It was the size of a suitcase and was called a portable. It contained its own printer and I used it in my private practice to print out test results and write letters. Its “portability” was limited to if somebody else carried it, but it served me pretty well for my five years of private practice. It used a large size floppy disc, and after a while it was obviously time for me to buy a new computer. That meant learning another system, but I managed it with new programs, Quarto for writing and Quicken for spreadsheets – very satisfying. I treated computers as I did automobiles. I never cared what made them run or how they were made, just so when I turned the key they ran. My first husband disliked the computer because I paid more attention to it than I did to him. He had employees for that scutwork, but my second husband (before he was my husband, he was my major professor and co-author of our publish-or-perish research and publications) pushed me into keeping up with the Bill Gateses and Stephen Jobses of this new world. To me, keeping up was a new computer until the software stopped working on that model. Whenever I had trouble, he would carry the computer over to the repairman, who fixed it or sent him home with a new one. After he died, I relied on my son for carrying and getting repairs. I had begun writing this column by then, and I had been keeping my finances on the computer, so it had become an essential part of life, and it remains so. But it was getting slower and slower and everyone said I needed a new one. A new one would have to have a disc drive for my floppies containing all my tax records for years. I would put up with creeping pace, but I wouldn’t regenerate all that data. Fortunately for me, David’s step-daughter Jessica has returned to Lexington. She is a computer whiz and between him and her, I now have a new computer set up. They selected it, brought it in and made it work. Those jokes people my age tell about having to have a teenager show them how to use any new appliance are based on fact. I’m very lucky – David knows a good deal about computers and Jessie knows a whole lot (much more than a good deal). After a lot of their time and caring I’m up and running. It only took me a day and a half to learn as much as where I was when the old computer slowed up to the point of expiration. With any luck, this one will last until I can’t write any more and some one else is keeping my records for me. I’m aware that new learning is deemed essential for keeping the brain flexible and functioning – this qualifies as new learning, I hope. All that exercise I’m doing three times a week may keep me mobile. If it doesn’t, I’m going to send messages from the other world, suggesting that the people who are left sit around a lot and listen to politicians. That will make their lives so unpleasant they won’t mind dying.
