The field of medicine has a reputation for attracting some of the sharpest and most astute minds. It’s a discipline that requires nearly inhuman competence, skill and devotion. Even the best doctors, however, need a break from work from time to time, and The Voice-Tribune took the time to talk with a small handful of the fantastic doctors in the area to discuss any hobbies or passions that they may have outside of the office.

DR. JOHN MEYER

ophthalmologist “I kind of don’t like to sit still. I’d much rather be doing something,” says Dr. John Meyer, an ophthalmologist at The Eye Care Institute. His interests are varied, and his devotion to them is absolute. “It started out as playing sports,” says Meyer. “I got interested in martial arts and things. My kids were doing that, so I took classes and it got to the point where I was going five or six times a week. Eventually, I got to a second degree black belt. I started playing volleyball, and I was playing that four or five days a week. I started running, and it got to the point where I was a running a lot. A couple years ago, I ran the Chicago Marathon.” Meyer does many of these activities with his son. Together, they built a 1933 roadster from scratch. “My dad didn’t want to pay somebody to do something that he could do himself, so if something broke, he would just learn how to fix it. So I grew up like that and didn’t have much fear of trying new things,” recalls Meyer in explanation of his ever-inquisitive nature. Another activity that Meyer shares with his son is woodworking. “My son flips houses, so it has brought me closer to him. We put floors and windows in a house, and now we’re renting it out to some college kids. It gives me something to do that I don’t really have to think too much about. I really appreciate anything that keeps me busy or teaches me something new,” attests Meyer. The doctor claims that the relatively menial task of woodworking helps keep his mind clear and lets him think outside the box. “In the operating room, things happen that you’re not counting on all the time. Knowing that you can get through it keeps you from feeling stressed. It’s also really nice to see when it’s all done. You develop a plan and you build it. I like to keep my mind sharp so I’m always thinking on my feet, and it keeps things interesting.”

DR. MELANIE LEVIN

radiologist Dr. Levin is a radiologist by trade, but she chooses to fill her free time mostly by skiing. “I cycle. I run. I ski, but I also ski race. I race in a recreational race league called NASTAR, which is a national way of preparing yourself against other racers in your same age and gender category,” says Levin. According to her, if you place in the top two to five percentile of people in any of the places that run NASTAR races, you get invited to the nationals. Levin acknowledges, like most doctors, that the world of medicine requires constant attention, so one of the reasons that she is so attracted to strenuous physical activity is that it, too, begs the full attention of the participant: “I like to do this because I tend to disappear when I do that activity. I’m not really worried about work issues, family issues, friendship issues. All I have to really worry about is, Where is my next turn? What lift am I riding? I can just really put the rest of my life on hold and enjoy my activity.” Levin also speaks to a child-like exuberance when skiing: “You know, like when you’re a kid. If you ever liked riding a bicycle, the second you get on it, it’s just fun to ride it. You get that feeling of ‘Whee!’ When I do that thing, I evoke that feeling.” Being a doctor is undoubtedly a stressful undertaking. The weight of constantly making complex decisions that impact others’ lives is heavy. “It gets really important to have at least one thing,” says Levin, “If not several things you’re passionate about that isn’t work as a way to sort of blow off steam. Without that, I think the stress really becomes unmanageable.”

DR. DEBORAH MASSEY

pediatrician One of the stereotypes surrounding doctors is that they’re all work and no play. Because of this idea, many doctors who are parents can be absent from their children’s and spouses’ lives. In the case of Dr. Deborah Massey, pediatrician at Prospect Pediatric, that could not be further from the truth. “When I have my daughter, we are really active. We like to go out in nature. We go hiking in Cherokee Park and Iroquois. We go to concerts for the Louisville Orchestra or for chamber music. I’ll take her to places like Forecastle or Cave Hill,” she says. However, Massey is also aware of the importance of spending time with herself. To that end, Massey describes herself as an avid reader and a robust film buff, and she certainly seems to possess a host of evidence to back that statement up. “I watch a lot of movies from the Criterion Collection,” she says. “At last count, I’ve watched around 600. I used to go to Wild and Woolly to rent the more esoteric ones that you can’t find on Netflix or Hulu.” Claiming to have over 6,000 books in her personal library, Massey is more than qualified to speak to the transportational and revelatory power of a good read: “I read every day. I think that having something fun to do helps you decompress, and it broadens your horizons. I think with books and films, you can travel the world in your own home, and being out in nature, it opens your eyes. I think it just makes you more well-rounded and more accepting of viewpoints different than your own.” This sentiment can only help Dr. Massey connect with her patients and live a full and varied life for herself and her daughter.

DR. MELANIE STORY DR. SCOTT KUIPER

family physician sportsmedicine medicine & orthopaedic surgery “I have realized over the past few years that medicine can be all-consuming, and it’s easy for us as physicians to find ourselves submerged in it. It’s initially fine when you come out of training and residency. That’s what we’re trained to do. Over the past couple of years though, I have realized that I needed to have more," explains. Dr. Melanie Story, family medicine physician at her practice, Genesis 1 Health.

Story first turned to her own home to find that missing passion in her life, asserting that she desired to be more than just a parent. She wanted to be a mother. “Medicine was going to always be there, but life was going to pass me by,” she says. “I had to give more time at home with my children. Playing outside with them, riding dune buggies, creating with them is my first passion outside of medicine. Being with them. That truly brings me joy.” Story goes so far as to say that even this preliminary yet influential step made all the difference in her career: “I started to become a better doctor because of it because I started relating to my patients even more than I was already.” Over time, Story continued to rediscover herself, rekindling interests in playing the piano and working in her yard. Eventually, however, Story unearthed a new passion, one that has blossomed into a beautiful talent: “I build dollhouses, and I think it’s a blast. I put the electric in them. I put Christmas trees in them. I build little furniture and rugs for them. I have two little boys and my husband, so that’s my girly thing.” And that’s not all. Story continued in this vein and also makes Derby hats and other sundry crafts. “Anything I can make with my hands brings me true joy. It doesn’t have to be huge and extravagant, it’s just what comes natural,” says Story, and as is the case with most doctors who attempt to live full lives beyond medicine, these natural gifts have only further enriched her time with her family, her knowledge of herself and the success of her practice.

DR. SCOTT KUIPER

sports medicine & orthopaedic surgery Sometimes the interest a doctor has is a direct correlation to his or her career, and sometimes, it's the complete opposite. In the case of Dr. Scott Kuiper, orthopaedic surgeon and physician of sports medicine at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, it’s both. “I cycled in college and got away from my fitness routine as a married father of three kids. I became a spectator for a number of years and just worked. A number of years ago, I wanted to get back for health but also the demands of my job are very physical,” Kuiper admits. The doctor decided to make a change, however, and he returned to the seat of his bike, eventually joining a couple of teams to race that bike such as Texas Roadhouse Cycling. “The cardiovascular benefits alone are tremendous,” attests Kuiper pragmatically. “It helps my energy level, my focus level, my endurance level for my work day. A big part of my life is just trying to stay healthy and maintain my weight. I’m always looking into ways to improve my nutrition.” Kuiper also has another passion, one that utilized the other hemisphere of his brain: “I got interested in sports photography. It’s just another way to express your creative side and allows you to study things in ways that aren’t really a part of medicine. It’s great to take a break and see the world differently, to see things from another perspective.” Some of the greatest minds in history were able to see the individual merits of science and art, especially when coupled together, which is perhaps why Dr. Kuiper’s career has been and will continue to be so illustrious.

It was 1981. I had two interns who were sort of my bosses, and they were these two macho big guys. We were seeing patients, and then they came to me and said, 'You need to go in here and see this patient because we're not seeing him.' And I thought maybe he was really sick or something, but I went in and it turns out the reason the interns didn't want to treat him was because he was gay. Anyway, he had this really strange skin condition, which turned out to be Kaposi sarcoma, which we now know is one of the harbinger signs of AIDS. It made me feel just so bad for people who were so outcast because those interns were not going to look at him, and they didn't even know what he had.

Memorial Day Engraving Program Honors Fallen Soldier

Woodford Reserve Named Official Bourbon of Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course

The Woodford Reserve Distillery will honor the memory of a Bowling Green native who was killed in combat by donating the proceeds of a Memorial Weekend bottle sale to the 101st Airborne Division Association’s “Screaming Eagle Foundation.” In 2010, Bowling Green native 1st Lt. Eric Yates was serving with the Strike Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division when he was killed in an IED explosion.

It was announced on May 19 that Woodford Reserve will be the official bourbon of Belmont Park and Saratoga

To honor his service and sacrifice, the distillery will be engraving bottles of Woodford Reserve May 27-30

and donating the proceeds to the “Screaming Eagle Foundation.” Visitors 21 years and older can purchase a bottle of Woodford Reserve to be engraved with a personalized message of their choice. This is one of the ongoing efforts from the members of BRAVE, Brown-Forman’s veteran’s resource group, to honor and recognize the dedication and sacrifice of the men and women serving in the military. Hilliard Lyons Honors Educators at Excellence in Education Awards Celebration On May 19, more than 50 teachers and principals from across the Jefferson County Public School district were honored during the 2016 Excellence in Education Awards celebration.

The Louisville facility functions as a call center for an unnamed financial services company that provides financial services for military veterans and their families. Most of the workers at the Louisville center handle deposits, credit card customer service and card fraud prevention. Others focus on human resources, IT, workforce management or quality assurance. They all have a role to play in the pursuit of a single mission: to resolve customers’ financial concerns as efficiently as possible. “It’s a different kind of environment for people,” Archangel says, “and at the same time, it’s surprisingly rewarding for those who have never been in a contact center world before.” For Archangel, who joined the Marines right out of high school and served for about four years, providing gainful work for veterans is “kind of awesome.” G.I. Jobs has twice named Teleperformance one of the nation’s top military-friendly companies. At a ceremony in Washington, D.C., Second Lady Jill Biden recognized the company for its military spouse employment. Teleperformance has also been listed as a top veter-

“At the end of the day,” Archangel says, “it’s about, ‘Are we being professional, and are we being friendly during this time?’ It’s a pretty healthy environment to be in.” Archangel is taking applications now for another 250 positions in order to bring total employment over 1,000. His goal is to hire as many veterans as possible to keep the veteran percentage at 25 or higher. It was Louisville’s comparatively high veteran population that attracted Teleperformance to open its center here in 2014. “When I had the opportunity to take on this particular client and relocate for them, I just jumped in with both feet,” says Archangel, who previously worked in Richmond, Virginia and hails originally from rural Pennsylvania.

Collard comes from a military family. Under her leadership, the company has instituted several internal military-friendly initiatives. For example, employees who are normally required to dress formally can buy a jeans pass, and the money goes to help homeless veterans.

Signs of Victory for Cardinal Baseball

B

eing a die-hard Louisville baseball fan isn't exactly the easiest task in the world. Not only does the sport begin at a time (February) when Cardinal basketball hysteria is typically at its peak, but the first half of the season takes place during a period of time that few sports fans ever associate with baseball.

MIKE RUTHERFORD

probably hop on now because there's a pretty large fact floating around right now that's impossible to gloss over casually: This Louisville baseball team is good enough to win a national championship. Love the sport or loathe the sport, the preceding statement should be enough to at least catch your eye – if not your head and heart – for this weekend and beyond.

If the Cardinals are dog-piling at Jim Patterson Stadium in a few weeks, you're going to want to be able to truthfully say that you've been there for the Omaha journey. And if you need a little nudge to get that journey started, I'm here to help.

@cardchronicle

This being the case, the average UofL fanatic keeps a casual eye on Dan McDonnell's club in February and March, and then really starts to get to know their team once the basketball madness has died down. Another chunk of folks will start to pay attention only when the postseason rolls around. And then, of course, there is another contingent of fans who just doesn't care for the game of baseball. They have a hard time getting into the whole thing at all. If you fall into one of the latter groups and have been wary about hopping on the Cardinal baseball bandwagon, I'm here to tell you that it's still okay to become a die hard this late in the game. There's plenty of room for you, and you should

Here are five things you should know about this Louisville baseball team before they begin their quest for a national championship. 1. THEY'RE NO. 1 IN THE RPI RANKINGS Let’s start simply. Louisville's sweep of Wake Forest last weekend allowed the Cards to move into the top spot in college baseball's RPI rankings, knocking Florida off that throne for the first time since the early stages of the season. RPI matters even more in college baseball than it does in its basketball counterpart, meaning UofL's lofty ranking should all but guarantee it a top five over-

all seed when the NCAA Tournament bracket is revealed next week. 2. THE CARDS PROBABLY HAVE THE BEST PITCHING IN THE COUNTRY How deep is Louisville's pitching staff, you ask? Well, their mid-week starter (or No. 4 guy), Cade McClure, has the best record in the country at 11-0. Their No. 3 starter, Kyle Funkhouser, has won his last five starts and just so happens to be the program's all-time leader in wins, strikeouts, games started and innings pitched. Their No. 2 starter, Drew Harrington, was just named ACC Pitcher of the Year. Finally, ace Brendan McKay might be the first player to hear his name called in the 2017 MLB Draft. Oh, and then there's closer Zack Burdi, who regularly hits triple digits with his fastball and who is about to be a first-round draft pick himself. 3. LOUISVILLE IS PLAYING ITS BEST BASEBALL OF THE SEASON AT THE PERFECT TIME UofL enters this week's ACC Tournament having won nine straight games and 16 of its last 17. Of those 16 wins, eight came against teams that were ranked in the top 25 at the time. This run led the Cards to their second straight ACC Atlantic Division title, and Dan McDonnell to his second straight conference Coach of the Year award. 4. COREY RAY IS A SUPERSTAR The junior left fielder is a finalist for just about every national player of the year award there is, entering the postseason hitting .326 with 14 home runs and 57 RBI. Just how good is he? ESPN's Keith Law recently tabbed Ray as the No. 1 overall prospect available in the 2016 MLB Draft. Even if he doesn't go No. 1, it's far more likely than not that the Chicago native will become Louisville's highest draft pick ever next month. 5. THIS IS LOUISVILLE BASEBALL'S BEST SHOT AT WINNING A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

UofL's Danny Rosenbaum makes it safely to first after NC State's Preston Palmeiro drops the catch.

The Cards have been to the College World Series before, but they've never been able to do much (or really any) damage after getting to Omaha. There are no guarantees with college baseball's wild postseason setup, but just about everyone associated with UofL baseball feels like this is their shot to get over the hump and pursue the sport's top prize. The next month ought to be awfully entertaining. VT PHOTO BY ADAM CREECH

Five months ago, the Nation was suddenly turned on by Derek Willis. He’s back, presumably healthy, and what team wouldn’t benefit from a 6-foot-9 senior who can shoot from outside? Dominique Hawkins – a dogged defender, experienced point guard and decent shooter – is also back for his senior season. Mychal Mulder, another good shooter, is back. The two big men from Down Under, Isaac Humphries and Tai Wynyard, are back. It’s a shame, however, that the athletic, very promising, Charles Matthews won’t be returning. And what about Isaiah Briscoe, a gold-plated recruit of a season ago? During his freshman campaign, much was made of the holes in his game, his shooting in general and his free-throw shooting in particular. But he brought intensity and energy to the court, another bulldog on defense and an unstoppable force to the hoop. In fact, Briscoe is the beau ideal of Calipari’s dribble-drive offense. This coming year, the offensive talent is spread around, a perfect foil for Briscoe’s game – if he comes back. What would Elisabeth Kübler-Ross say about all this? She’d probably say it’s denial, her first stage of grief. Four to go, ending with acceptance. That all starts with Big Blue Madness in October – and finishes in Phoenix in April. VT

The Five Stages of Losing Bolden

Smith’s Road to the NBA

Russ Smith helped UofL to the 2013 National Championship. He was the 47th pick in the 2014 NBA draft by the New Orleans Pelicans. He's played in a total of 27 NBA games over the last two seasons for New Orleans and Memphis. Smith starred last season playing for Delaware in the National Basketball Association Developmental League. On March 23, Smith scored a D League record 65 points for the 87ers. What's next? I waited to play summer league, so I'm waiting on a few phone calls and just see where I land and try to get back in the NBA. The NBA is a good feeling, and I want to get back there. Are you looking to stay with the Sixers organization or make a move somewhere else?

What teams are on your wish list?

Taylor’s 10 KENT TAYLOR

I've been talking to the Clippers, looking to do their mini camp. I've spoken with Portland, and Portland looks like the frontrunner. I've spoken with a bunch of other teams too, Minnesota or Indiana, so we'll see. I think at this point, it'll be Portland.

WAVE3 Sports

I'll be looking to another organization, plus I'll be a free agent. This will be the first time I really get to pick and choose a team. I'll be able to pick one that suits my style more and that will let me be me. The last two years have been a great experience, and I've worked hard. Myself, Memphis, New Orleans – we all worked to get to where I want to be as a player, but I think this being my third year, I'll be able to really flourish in a system that I pick. So it's all in my hands now.

What are your impressions of the current UofL team?

What was it like to score 65 in one game? It was a lot of fun, but I kind of set the bar high for myself, and I knew it was an ESPN game. I just wanted to play hard and whatever happened, it happened. It just ended up being a great night for me.

I think they'll be fine next season. They're a defensive team, and Coach P is going to have them straight, and obviously, them sitting out this year was unfortunate. I really wish the university wouldn't have pulled the trigger so soon because all of the stuff is fiction. It's not true at all. It was just sad. They had a good team to make a run, and hopefully next year, they can make up for it.

What are the biggest differences between the NBA and the NBDL?

Do you have another camp coming up?

How frustrating was it that you didn't get a chance in the Sixers organization?

Yes, the camp is very important, definitely going to need campers. We want people to come out and support us for sure. Myself, Peyton and everybody are coming back. If we didn't care, we wouldn't be here, and that's basically what it is. It's kycampofchampions.com. Sign up, it'll be myself, Peyton, Terry Rozier. We'll try and bring Gorgui down. It's the Cardinal week, doing a whole bunch of area stuff and appearances, and I think it would be really good for the city of Louisville to come and support it as if it was a Cardinal basketball game or the way Fourth Street was when we went to the Final Four and won the championship. What are the dates? The dates are June 21-23. I also have the golf scramble on June 20 at Hunting Creek that's going to be fantastic. We already have close

M A Y 2 6 , 2 0 1 6 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

to 20 teams. We need teams to sign up, and we need more donors for the foundation. We have a silent auction after the golf scramble. That website is russdiculousgolfscramble.com.

I would say definitely the following, obviously the crowd and everything. The flights and the hotels, the traveling. The D league, it's a grind. There's no other way to put it. You want to be in the NBA, and that's something I intend to get back to.

I was frustrated in the worst way. I don't think there was anybody more frustrated than me. I'm leading the league in assists, so I'm doing that, and I'm leading the league in scoring, and I'm probably leading the league in steals. I had some 40 point, 10 assist games. I had a 65 and 50 point game, a 30 and 20 assist game. I averaged 16 assists for two weeks, and I was just thinking, All right, I don't know what you all want me to do. You've guarded Steph Curry, what's that like? It's annoying. That's the most annoying thing probably in the world. What I tried to do, I know he was looking for a three, I just tried to stay behind him and make it difficult for him to just get into his shot, but he moves so well without the ball. Just to keep up with him is hard, and then, he makes those half court shots, and it feels like he's putting a stake in your heart. I feel like he wants to shoot threes and their offense runs off of him doing that, and if he can beat me making 15 high arcing floaters, then he'll have to do that. That's better than eight threes.

By being around softball her whole life, she says, “I was kind of destined to go and play college softball.” Kelley’s college decision was predicated on who offered what she wanted to study academically. “I really want to go into nursing and build an impact there,” she said. “There are only two Division I schools who will let me go and play softball and be a nurse. Belmont was the closer one and that is how I made my decision.” She says consistency will be the area she will work on in the next two seasons so teammates can be more dependent on her in critical moments of a game. On Kelley’s game, Coach Jones added, “She is a sophomore, but she plays like a senior. She has been here since she was a middle-school kid. Shelby is the tiger in the bullpen. She will do whatever it takes as a player and whatever the team needs. She is a workhorse, a dominant workhorse, and she is going to be really good. She is good now, but as the years go on, she is going to be a beast.” Jones adds that Mouzon, Barber and Kelley have the same mentality as players with a hunger to be the best they can be. “They are hard workers, they want to be the best, and when their game isn’t the best, they don’t get down on themselves, it just makes them want to work more.

Sports Kentucky Derby runner-up Exaggerator splashed to victory in the Preakness to avenge his loss to Nyquist two weeks earlier.

F

A Triple Crown Return to Earth

ollowing our collective ascent to the giddy heights of last year’s romp by American Pharoah through the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, this spring’s sudden return to Earth has been a little jarring.

Horse Sense

Although the Preakness field overflowed with horses that possessed early speed, many observers – including this one – felt Nyquist could back off the early speed in the 1 3/16mile second jewel of the Triple Crown, make a well-timed move to keep his unbeaten record intact and march on to Belmont Park for the 1 ½-mile Belmont Stakes, the final jewel of the Triple Crown.

JOHN ASHER

The hard landing can be described in five words that were underscored in each of the 37 years of Triple Crown frustration prior to the 2015 sweep by last year’s hero. The Triple Crown is hard. For two weeks following his victory in M A Y 2 6 , 2 0 1 6 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands, most racing conversations centered on Reddam Racing LLC’s Nyquist and his chances to become the first unbeaten winner of the Triple Crown since Seattle Slew in 1977 and just the second overall.

The task became more difficult when post

28

positions were drawn, and Nyquist ended up in number three, with the very speedy California Uncle Lino to his inside and a fistful of speedy types outside of the Derby winner’s starting gate. Rather than taking back with Nyquist and risk being trapped on the inside while surrounded by all that speed, trainer Doug O’Neill and team decided on a strategy to get Nyquist out of the gate and carry the fight from the opening bell. If Nyquist was the best horse, as they believed, he would get the job done. Lurking, was Kentucky Derby runner-up Exaggerator, a mud-loving stretch-runner that was zero-for-four in head-to-head battles with Nyquist but had launched a strong stretch run in the Kentucky Derby that had his team of Desormeaux brothers – trainPHOTO BY JIM MCCUE, MARYLAND JOCKEY CLUB


In retrospect, the issue was settled within a half-mile. Nyquist broke sharply, as did Uncle Lino, and the duo zipped through a first quarter of :22.38 and half-mile in :46.56 over a sloppy and sealed track that was not as fast as they made it look. Biding his time along the inside was Exaggerator, benefiting from one of Kent Desormeaux’s best rides. At the top of the stretch, Exaggerator swung to the outside and roared past the leg-weary leaders, rolling to a 3 ½-length victory. Nyquist fought on but was nipped for the runner-up spot by the Churchill Downsbased Cherry Wine, who made Preakness Day a joyful one for his team that includes longtime Louisville partners in trainer Dale Romans and owner Frank Jones.

So the Belmont Stakes will be without Nyquist, leaving Exaggerator as the star of the show leading up to the race. Exaggerator will be heavily favored in that race, but in the absence of Nyquist, one can expect close to a full gate of 14 rivals for the last of racing’s spring classics. Dale Romans is expected to be there with Cherry Wine and Toyota Blue Grass winner Brody’s Cause. Other possible Belmont horses include Derby fourth-place finisher Suddenbreakingnews and fellow Derby vets Mo Tom, Destin and Lani, the Japanese star who ran fifth in the Preakness. Creator, trained by Steve Asmussen and another Derby runner, is listed as “possible” for the Belmont. Gun Runner, who finished third in the Derby for Asmussen, has worked twice since that effort and is not listed among the Belmont possibles, but his speed would make him an intriguing prospect should his trainer have second thoughts about a run for the colt in New York. The main thing we do know about the Bel-

The Triple Crown is hard.

mont as of this writing at midday on Tuesday is that an ailment – not major, it appears, but completely unforeseen – has knocked the Kentucky Derby winner out of a chance to claim two-thirds of the Triple Crown. Over the space of four days, the ongoing story of Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist – with a classic pace-makes-the-race scenario contributing to his defeat in the Preakness and the uncertainty of illness entering the picture two days later – has underscored a lesson racing participants and fans learned a long time ago. It is one that underscores the special nature of 2015’s romantic spring with American Pharoah. The Triple Crown is hard. Which is as it should be. But that reality doesn’t make disappointing news of recent days any easier to digest. Meanwhile, the roster of Triple Crown winners, for at least one more year, stands at 12. VT

Despite the end of hopes for back-to-back Triple Crowns following the end of a nearly 40-year drought, there was great promise in the prospect of a Triple Crown rubber match in the Belmont Stakes, a race in which Nyquist’s speed seemed a great tactical advantage and the opportunity to turn the tables on his Preakness conqueror appeared strong. That is, until late Tuesday morning. We had heard Monday that a slight fever had delayed Nyquist’s trip from Pimlico to Belmont. The colt had encountered a light fever at Keeneland on his arrival in Kentucky following his Florida Derby triumph, but he had quickly moved past it and continued his journey to the Kentucky Derby winner’s circle on the first Saturday in May, earning the mantle of roses for winning America’s greatest race. But on Tuesday, there came news from O’Neill that Nyquist’s fever had improved and its timing would end any hopes of a Belmont Stakes bid by the Derby winner. “His temp is back up a bit. It's like 101 and change,” O’Neill told the Lexington Herald-Leader’s Alicia Wincze Hughes Tuesday morning. “Now, we have to get stronger with the antibiotics. "We always want to do right by him, and the right move is to chill and not even think about a race until he is right." With regard to bad timing, O’Neill had to deliver that news on the morning of his birthday.

Nyquist, shown in his Kentucky Derby triumph under jockey Mario Gutierrez, suffered his first career defeat in his third-place run in the Preakness.

The walled garden of 2,000 roses is a riot of color and perfume when in full bloom. There are 1,000 acres of parkland and gardens. It’s a monumental landscape with statues, temples, lakes, fountains and sweeping countryside views and one of the world’s greatest mansions. Next up was Harewood House. It is a place filled with art, Chippendale furniture, culture and heritage which continues to thrive today. One of the Treasure Houses of England, the historic Georgian house sits in a Capability Brown designed landscape. Its zoo even has flamingos, parrots and a pool of penguins! Inside the spectacular house is an important Axminster carpet. Handmade by carpet-maker Thomas Whitty, this carpet dates from around 1780 and is an original part of Adam’s design scheme for the room. It is incredibly rare, one of only eight surviving in the world still in original Adam interiors. Leaving York, we headed to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and then on to 16th century Haddon Hall, one of the few grand houses to have survived from the Middle Ages. Its architecture spans Norman, Tudor and Elizabethan eras and is enhanced by one of England’s finest collections of early English furniture and tapestries.

The long black stone set in the floor marks the point behind which women had to remain until the mid-16th century. Here, worship has been offered to God every day for over 900 years!

When we left Durham Cathedral, we headed to the Bowes Museum in Durham County. It

with challenges as a playwright took on the task of building his first grand house. There is the 18th century Temple of the Four Winds for relaxation. There are statues of gods in its garden. Castle Howard’s exterior is adorned with intricate carved decorations, coronets, ciphers and coats of arms, a frieze of sea horses and cherubs.

DEAR ABBY: We visit my in-laws two or three times a year. During our most recent visit, my kids (ages 12 and 14) were roughhousing with their cousins and accidentally slammed a door, which resulted in a broken frame. Their grandpa had asked them to stop, which they apparently didn’t do.

Outrunning Autism 5K

Families for Effective Autism Treatment (FEAT) of Louisville is hosting one of its largest annual fundraisers, Outrunning Autism, a professionally timed 5K run, at the beautiful Parklands of Floyds Fork – Beckley Creek Park on Saturday, June 4 at 9 a.m.  Outrunning Autism is a race event for all ages and fitness levels. To learn more about the event’s long-term goals and community partnerships, we caught up with FEAT of Louisville Executive Director Deborah Morton. Why is the Outrunning Autism 5K important for FEAT?

What kind of community partnerships has the event resulted in for FEAT?

Outrunning Autism is not only a fundraiser but, more importantly, is a vessel to spread autism awareness in our community. More and more participants join our event each year because they have a personal relationship with someone who has autism, and often that person is not in this city. However, because at the rate that autism prevalence is growing in the U.S. (currently one in 68 children are diagnosed), people want to help spread awareness and understanding about this development disorder.

We are excited to have Churchill Downs as a presenting sponsor. As CDI Director of Community Relations Lauren DePaso remarks, “Churchill Downs is proud to be the presenting sponsor for this year’s FEAT of Louisville Outrunning Autism 5K. We truly value the work of FEAT in our community and applaud their ongoing efforts to drive support toward families who are affected by autism. By providing creative programs, FEAT’s dedicated staff and community network act as a beacon of encouragement to our city, and we are thrilled to be a small part of their success.”

Founded in 1999 and based in Louisville, FEAT of Louisville exists to help ease the journey for children and families with autism through ongoing support, education, programs and resources. The 2016 Outrunning Autism 5K & Fun Walk will benefit FEAT of Louisville and the many programs they support for children with autism, including the Endeavor Program, a specialized preschool program for children with autism served yearround; Get Your FEAT Wet therapeutic swim program; and the Dreams in Motion summer camp, which offers structured activities and social interaction.

We are so excited about this incredible partnership for the 2016 Outrunning Autism 5K as it clearly reflects the growth of this event. Churchill Downs is such an integral part of our community, and to have their support in raising autism awareness is huge! We anticipate record numbers in attendance. Our goal is 1,500 people running for autism awareness. We could never reach these goals, however, without the incredible commitment of all our sponsors, volunteers and participants. This will be our third year to hold the 5K at The Parklands. In addition to the run/ walk, the event will also include a Vendor’s Village and a Kid’s Zone with family fun activities

featuring bounce houses, face painting, balloons, mascots and music. We will even have the Churchill Down bugler, Steve Buttleman, play a special “call to the post” to kick our race off. It really is a family event. What do you hope the event accomplishes in years to come? Again, our goal is to not only raise funds to sustain our annual programs for children in our community with autism, but we hope to bring even more awareness to this developmental disorder that is not going away. The more families that can know about FEAT of Louisville and reach us for support, the better we become at seeing our vision for our community come to fruition. We want to make a better tomorrow for our children today. Is it too late to get signed up? Registration for the event is open online at feat5k.com through May 30 for $35 per person. Registration will then close until race day from 7:30-8:30 a.m., when participants can sign up at the event for $40 per person. Race time is 9 a.m. There will be awards for top finishers and those in different age groups the day of the race. VT PHOTO BY TIM VALENTINO


Denim & Diamonds Gala

On June 3, the Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana will hold its beloved fundraiser, the Denim & Diamonds Gala, at Locust Grove. As the event is critically important to the center and also adored by the community thanks to its fun theme, we caught up with Resource Development Coordinator Bobbi Cain to learn a little bit more about what exactly the proceeds from Denim & Diamonds will benefit. What is the Denim & Diamonds Gala?

dle. At 9:15 p.m., Artie Dean Harris & Bourbontown will take the stage – and make sure to stop by the photo booth for your souvenir photo to take home.

This year marks our ninth anniversary of hosting our Denim & Diamonds Gala, our largest fundraiser of the year. Guests are encouraged to wear their finest Western and country chic – including sequins and cowboy hats. Our gala raises money to help fund support groups, exercise classes and educational series for those who suffer from Parkinson’s disease, their family members and caregivers who live throughout Kentucky and Indiana.

For those unaware of what the Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana is, could you briefly explain? The Parkinson Support Center is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to care, education and social assistance to patients and families affected by Parkinson’s disease in Kentucky and Indiana. Our mission is to promote a healthier and improved quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s disease in our communities. We currently offer 18 support groups and 10 exercise classes throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

The fact that the event is in its eighth year must be reassuring to know how much the Louisville community cares, correct? Yes. Our Denim & Diamonds Gala accounts for 40 percent of our annual operating budget. It is very evident by the money raised from our gala, as well as other donations we receive, that Louisville and Indiana values the services and support we offer. What can attendees expect to see this year? On Friday, June 3, we will host our gala at Historic Locust Grove, 561 Blankenbaker Lane. Tim Laird, our emcee, will begin the evening at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction; a dinner will follow and be provided and pre-

pared by some of Louisville’s finest chefs including: Anoosh Shariat (Anoosh Bistro), Dean Corbett (Corbett’s Restaurant), Jason Smith (GM, Gordon Biersch), Ellen McCarty (Science Hill), Daniel Stage (Louisville Country Club), Matt Weirich (Exchange), Tommy Hayden (Gordon Biersch), Ray Rameriez (Catch 23) and Patrick Roney (Harvest). Shaun Logsdon, affectionately called “The Cowboy,” will lead guests through our Live Auction and Raise the Pad-

Are tickets still available? If so, how can people go ahead and purchase them? Yes, tickets are $225 per person or $2,000 per table of 10 and can be purchased online at parkinsoncenter.org/9th-annual-denim-diamonds-gala or checks can be mailed to 315 Townepark Circle, #100, Louisville, KY 40243. For those who can’t attend, our silent auction will be online effective May 28 on our WEDO Auction website (wedoauctions.net/2016denim&diamonds). VT

Keep Your Kids Well This Summer

I

am not sure how I survived my kids growing up – or, more accurately, how they survived my parenting. As a pediatrician, I saw danger in the mundane: crossing the street, the bathtub, trees, the yard (think poison ivy and bugs), not to mention in the proven: trampolines, pools, monkey bars, etc.

ing constant teaching moments.

Health & Wellness DR. ELSA HADDAD

There was a trampoline in our neighborhood, and my husband allowed our kids to go. Since they were half his, I went along with one condition – well, two. They would have to wear helmets when they jumped and their dad had to be there the entire time. We built a pool the year my first son was born, and I had so many alarms set up that a leaf would drop and I would run outside believing he drowned – again. The reason I mention these anecdotes is to let you know that I was a beyond-worried parent when my children were little. But as they grew up, so did I.

Also, be aware of what you choose to allow your children to do. If they are going to jump on a trampoline, allow no more than two people on it. It doesn’t matter if there is a surrounding net because most of the injuries occur when children fall on the springs. Always be there when they are jumping.

token worth whatever you want it to be. For example, for every hour they are outside (for older kids, you can include chores) they earn a token worth 10 minutes. They can use the token for any screen in the house. Think about keeping the computer or laptop in a common room instead of letting them have a TV or computer in their room. For kids under 15, consider imposing a rule where phones are given to parents before bedtime and retrieved again in the morning.

This season, summer camps are great, but invest a little time researching it. You don’t need to pay a high price if they are just babysitting. If you are going to take them to a pool, lake or ocean regularly, enroll them in swim lessons. They don’t need to be champions but do need to learn how to tread water long enough for someone to help them if they get in trouble. Use sunblock, but more importantly, use common sense. No matter what the bottle says, nothing can protect skin for more than four hours in direct sun, no matter how many times you apply it. Use insect repellent, but for kids younger than 10, spray their clothes before they put them on, not the child.

Children must learn independence in small doses constantly. Allow them to fall and have scrapes. Try to make sure that either you or another caring adult is there when they fall and scrape themselves. Model calmness in the face of minor scrapes; they will imitate you.

Limit indoor screen time. Consider having them earn tokens for outside activities. Make each

One last piece of advice: Keep the following medicines in your medicine cabinet for potential summer injuries: Benadryl liquid, ibuprofen (more effective than acetaminophen for fever and pain), hydrocortisone cream for insect bites, and eardrops to dry ears after swimming (or use a blow dryer on the low setting).


I

have to be up front about something: I’m not good at art. I’m aware that that’s a tremendous generalization. I’m an award-winning playwright, and I’ve participated as an actor in countless shows throughout my life. I suppose I should clarify. I’m bad at visual art.

Out & About

BEN GIERHART

@BenGierhart_BEP

It was the only class in school that I never seemed able to do well in. Math didn’t come as naturally to me as some other things, but I eventually figured out its cold logic due to persistence and eventually became more than pretty good at it. I’m not athletic, but I always tried hard in gym, a fact that my teachers seemed to appreciate. After a while, I managed to be less terrible, even discovering a talent as a defensive basketball player. Visual art on the other hand... I never quite got it. I read a lot about it, and to this day, I have a firm grasp of its theories and principles. I just can’t do it. I’ll always be scarred from my attempt in fifth grade at making a pinch pot over ten times and finally being assigned a paper on pinch pots by my fifth grade art teacher in frustration.

Booking a session is easy. Simply go to the website, and click on “Blow Your Own.” Most of the sessions are Saturdays and last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. On the website, they are separated by the type of object you wish to create. There are ornaments, paperweights and more artistic fixtures like May flowers, which is the option I signed up for more out of the availability in my schedule than anything else.

When I showed up, Casey Hyland, owner of Hyland Glass, had already fired up the furnaces, and after some quick pleasantries and introductions, we got started. Being one on one

with Casey was a delight. I never once worried about how my piece of glass was going to turn out, and he put me in charge almost immediately. I started by picking out my colors from a series of trays of different sand-like glass varieties. Knowing my color theory, I decided to choose bold colors that would reflect my personality but some that would also complement each other well. The first furnace burns at around 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit, and Casey helped me heat some transparent glass that would be the centerpiece of my flower and hold all my colors. Next, we moved to a second furnace heated at just a little hotter in order to more easily manipulate glass. Once hot enough, Casey and I removed the glass from the furnace and peeled petals from it using tongs. When the glass would begin to cool, we would heat it again and begin the process anew. All the while, Casey kept me engaged with the task at hand while also keeping the atmosphere light-hearted with idle chitchat. Before long, I had myself a flower, and Casey even complimented me: “This looks great. I like the colors. Very exotic.” It may not be much, but that compliment did quite a bit to restore my faith in my abilities and in myself. My work is not going to be featured in an art museum any time soon, but I am now sincerely looking forward to returning to the world of art and attempting to make more. Due to a necessary process called anealing, my glass flower needed to stay in a relatively much cooler furnace – a frigid 900 degrees – overnight to set. There was a slight pang in my heart from being separated from it. It’s funny how attached to things we can become isn’t it? Nothing could compare, however, when it was finally time for me to pick it up and hold the fruit of my labor. I urge you to experience this for yourself. Sign up for “Blow Your Own” at Hyland Glass, and you’ll soon have a tiny piece of yourself to take home. VT

When I was told that I was going to have to write a piece on Hyland Glass’ “Blow Your Own,” an opportunity for those interested in a primer on the intricacies of glassblowing, I was a little anxious. All those insecurities came roaring back. I thought, Glassblowing? That sounds really hard. Like, harder than normal art. Can I do it? I can’t make a pinch pot… Then the real kicker came in: What if it’s ugly? In the days leading up to the session, I thought long and hard about this. Art is a beautiful process because it comes from the artist. It’s a piece of them made manifest, so why would anything that comes from me be ugly? It was time to correct this error in thinking head on.

f you’ve driven down Market Street in the last six months, it’s likely you’ve spotted the eye-catching sign at the corner Market and Floyd. Located on the south side of the street, a crisp and bold teal rectangle with black lettering simply says Press on Market, beckoning passersby to one of the most elegant coffee shops ever to hit Louisville.

@LouisvillesRemy

Owner Bruce Lake opened Press in February after he was contacted by Vickie Yates Brown, former CEO of the UofL Foundation’s Nucleus, who was interested in bringing a coffee shop to the burgeoning startup park that

orbits around the Market and Floyd intersection. Lake affirms that the timing was perfect because he was already considering calling it quits at his former business, the Anchorage Cafe. He describes that things had sort of snowballed in Anchorage – what started as a coffee shop turned into breakfast and lunch, and the staff was spread thin. But now, at his new enterprise, his vision is as clear as the bold lines that nuance Press’ interior.

Press on Market is a coffee shop, and a mighty fine one. Lake is fairly new to Louisville, having moved here in 2010 from Connecticut, but he pays admirable respect to his predecessors. “The early movers of independent coffee started way before we got here,” he admits. “I know Heine Brothers’ really got things going, and we of course love the guys over at Sunergos and Quills – just amazing coffee. And

59

Please & Thank You in the neighborhood is just great. But coffee is nowhere near saturation, and there’s room for a lot more we think.” Indeed, Lake explains that he’s seen a very positive response to Press and the best mix of customers from surrounding businesses and residences, which he knew would be critical to his business’ success: “We just thought, ‘If we’re going to make this work, we’re going to have to attract a big, broad audience.’” To help accomplish this goal, Lake was dedicated to creating an atmosphere that was at once urban and sophisticated. “I feel like in other places, you kind of face a choice with coffeehouses,” he muses. “You’ve got great little Bohemian places that are fantastic and usually have the best coffee in town, or you’ve got a stylish place with a different look and feel that might be corporate or franchise. But we wanted to strike a balance between those two.” V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M • M A Y 2 6 , 2 0 1 6


LIFE

Press is, of course, local, but Lake wanted to create a fine-tuned ambiance that spoke to experience and style – an aspiration he has successfully achieved. Press is open and clean with ample seating and massive windows that draw customers’ eyes to the bustling streetscape beyond. The walls are decorated with photographs of the local countryside, and a large soffit makes for the ideal acoustics – “We wanted it to not be church-mouse quiet, but we also didn’t want there to be such a din you couldn’t hear yourself talk.” When the weather is at last reliably warm, Press will be opening a resplendent patio, complete with a fire pit, living ivy wall and cantina lights. The menu features everyone’s favorite coffee beverages made from the beans of the local Good Folks Coffee, which is headed by Matt Argo, a longtime friend of Lake’s. Expectedly, the coffee is simply perfect, and the skill of the baristas is evident in the more complex beverages. Smoothies made from real and raw ingredients are also on the menu and have proven popular with those looking for a healthy boost any time of day. Meanwhile, like any good coffee shop, there are the treats. “We knew we wanted to have

a finite but really good selection of baked goods,” Lake details. “So we thought, ‘We’re going downtown. Let’s look at some of the really iconic local brands. So we get Nord’s doughnuts on Saturdays; we get our bagels every morning from Nancy’s Bagel Grounds; Klaus the German baker makes our pretzel croissants; our muffins and scones come from Breadworks – these are folks people know.”

And there’s so much more still to come from Press, including the possibility of other locations. Whether it’s for an out-of-office meeting, a stop on the way to work or a leisurely respite on the weekend, Press is a welcome addition to the neighborhood – a place that speaks not only to the city’s undeniable modernity but also to its tight-knit and congenial community.

most, when thinking of wine cellars, immediately think of rustic racks piled with rare and exquisite wines, the most integral facet to a wine cellar cannot actually be seen: Climate control of 55 degrees is ideal for short-term and long-term storage of wine. However, that is not to say the aesthetic is not important as well. “They can be very elaborate and very artistic,” Bass contends. “You can have everything from something that really does feel like a cellar where the walls are truly cellar-like to something very modern and all floor-to-ceiling glass.” Regardless of what they look like, however, Bass emphasizes how very important proper wine storage is to true aficionados. “It really is the perfect way to maintain the quality of your wines as best you can because what you don’t want in wines is the variation of temperatures,” she says. “So the consistency is the thing that’s really important.” Bass can actually personally testi-

fy to the effectiveness of wine storage space as she and her husband were sure to include one in their newly constructed home. “We personally built a home recently, and what we did was we made the first room right across from the dining room the wine room,” she recounts. “And there’s a tasting area outside with a table and chairs and then a whole geothermal-controlled wall for about 1,000 wine bottles.” And, as Bass knows first-hand, wine cellars and wine rooms are about much more than simply keeping the quality of your wine perfectly maintained; they are part of a home’s identity. They speak to sophistication and culture and are indicative of a standard of living that many aspire to. “People enjoy entertaining in their homes,” she relates. “When they have a high-end home, part of the whole idea of having it is to share that space with friends and family, and of course, wine has just taken off. It’s something everybody can have and enjoy at almost any level. Some people are really true collectors and will stock their wine based on region; meanwhile, others just like to have a variety. They like for it to be like art – part of the way they entertain.” VT

Not Quite Through the Looking Glass

“A

lice Through the Looking Glass” is a sequel to the 2010 movie called “Alice in Wonderland,” which was already a sequel to Lewis Carroll’s book of the same name, even though Carroll wrote a sequel to that book, called “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” Confused? It doesn’t matter.

mits to either photorealism or stylized animation. These Disney live-action adaptations are strange because they don’t really fit the definition of live action. They feature real actors imposed into computer-generated environments Film that manage to be high quality without seeming real at all. To be fair, I’ve BENNETT this approach work well in some DUCKWORTH seen movies, but it’s very tricky to put a finbennettduckworth.blogspot.com ger on what the difference is between the effectiveness of different eye-candy shows.

I’m sure that Walt Disney Pictures had some important business in bringing that property to the big screen again, and after what turned out to be one of Tim Burton’s worst movies, we now have a sequel from director James Bobin (“The Muppets”).

I do know that Disney screenwriter Linda Woolverton returns to this material to continue the misguided attempt to turn Wonderland into a place like Oz, Narnia or Middle Earth: a place that’s zany and magical but still has some level of structure when it comes to finding navigation or trustworthy friends.

The story essentially picks up where we last saw Alice, when she returned to the real world of oppressive Victorian England to overcome the limitations imposed upon her by assuming the command of a trading vessel in her father’s comMELANIE GALLOWAY, REALTOR MELANIE GALLOWAY, REALTOR pany.

The White Queen (Anne Hathaway) informs Alice that she may have the option of traveling through time to change the fate of the Hatter family and… I hate describing this plot already.

Fearing a return to the normalcy of restrictions imposed on women, Alice is coincidentally summoned back to Wonderland by Absolem the butterfly (with the voice of the late Alan Rickman) through a looking glass. This may be the only commonality this film has with the Lewis Carroll book of the same name.

It’s nearly impossible to have an emotional investment in the characters Alice meets in Wonderland, but the movie is trying so hard to humanize Lewis Carroll’s bizarre abstractions. In 1951, Disney’s animated version had no trouble being an entertaining movie without trying any of these things. Another annoyance is the film’s incessant dramatic scoring. Danny Elfman’s boy’s choir riffs give every turn of the movie the same dramatic value as the last. Wasn’t this composer once the king of quirky scores?

With saturated colors and new whimsical creations, this movie’s aesthetics are a great improvement over the previous one, but the effect of those visuals still lack the impact of a movie that com-

1.5 OUT OF 4 WHOLE STARS

Time in Wonderland is a dark, strange man (Sacha Baron Cohen) who is the king of the castle when it comes to the fate of others. Alice steals a device from him, which allows her to go on a Bill-and-Ted-style time-travelling journey where she learns that the tyrannical Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) plays a big part in the Hatter’s story too.

The movie has a few funny exchanges and beautiful qualities, but it’s quickly a tiresome bore of an experience that has me dreading what the “live action” results of “Beauty and the Beast” may be like. Disney’s doing so much great stuff, but their continued mission to trample on their most timeless properties is making me rather angry. VT

We decided to check out a reggae bar for New Year’s Eve, and we had a terrific time! The following day, I thought to myself how cool it would be to bring that experience to an outdoor setting in Louisville,” says Larry Bisig, CEO of Bisig Impact Group, the organizer of the event. Jennifer Washle is the promotions manager at Bisig Impact Group and has long been at the helm of the event: “I have been at the Bisig Group for almost 19 years. At the time I came on, Larry was running the event himself, and I guess he was impressed with my work ethic. I love what I do for a living. It is rewarding. It’s scary. It’s a lot of long, long hours, but there is nothing better than all the effort you have to put in your job and see the end result of all those patrons walking through our gate and having a great a time.” In Washle’s tenure, things have never been short of interesting. Like most music festivals, one of the most common elements that can ruin even the most carefully thought-out plans is the weather. “We have seen everything from snow, sleet, rain, tornadoes and some of the most beautiful days ever,” says Washle. “And you have to roll with those punches. I will never forget that maybe the first or second year, I took more responsibilities on my own, and it rained for three days straight.” Washle recalls the frustrations but also wisely points out that, at that point, your hands are tied. “You have to protect your patron first. If there is ever a weather situation that could endanger staff, a patron or a vendor, we take that very, very seriously. And we want people to understand that if we close the venue it is only for the pure safety of them and ourselves.” So, as a patron, you can rest easy knowing that Bisig has seen it all in regards to the weather and they can handle any situation Mother P H OTO S C O U R T E S Y O F B I S I G I M PA C T G R O U P

strongly believes in its musical lineup, including veteran bands Ultra Massive and The Ark Band. “We’re definitely one of the most significant reggae festivals in the region, and it all begins with the music and carries over to the food. We have three Jamaican vendors this year, and normally we have two,” says Washle proudly speaking of the exotic fare of vendors A Piece of Jamaica,The Louisville Jamaican Association and T-Bone’s Jerk Shack. “We also offer more normal fare because we know that maybe not everyone wants traditional Jamaican food. Of course, if you’re coming in with your young children, we want to cater to them as well.” Another of the unique features of the festival is free, ample parking and general affordability. “We have raised our pricing a little, but only due to the facts of changing costs. We want to stay affordable and only charge enough to continue to produce the festival year after year,” explains Washle. For Washle, the festival is undeniably fun, but it has taken on a new meaning for her over recent years: “I love what I do, and there’s nothing greater than these weeks when I’m going in 50 different directions. Over the past five years, I’ve dealt with cancer twice, and when stuff like that happens, it makes things like this so much more enjoyable. To see other people happy and be able to come to

work on something else has helped me as much I have helped Bisig. It’s much deeper these last five years than it has been before.” That roots reggae sound is relaxing, festive and fun. It just takes you somewhere else. Bisig knows to keep looking forward and to always try to give the patron the best experience possible. Last year, for the first time, the event ran from Friday through Sunday instead of Saturday through Monday, and that will continue this year still at Water Tower Park. Whichever day you attend, remember to laugh and have fun. As the famous Bobby McFerrin song says, “Don’t worry, be happy.” VT

Decades ago, James won Rose’s hand with an unforgettable declaration: “You have too much beauty for this lake to hold. Too much beauty for this night. Too many stars you’re outshining.” Now 75-years-old and in self-imposed confinement since her husband’s death, Rose contemplates the importance of a life’s words when all that remains is the quietness of grief. As her daughter, Emma, and the enigmatic Pastor Hidge attempt to coax Rose from her room, the trio navigate the walls that hide their hearts and embrace memories that will only fade with time. Bittersweet, poignant and touchingly funny, “Too Much, Too Much, Too Many” sinks the audience into a world of love too great for words. Tickets are $22.

PUZZLES

pets of the week Bentley is a 6-year-old Beagle mix looking for a forever home. Like all Beagles, Bentley loves to investigate sights and smells out in the great wide world. Bentley was with the same family for a long time, and he’s a little sad and uncomfortable at the shelter. But he loves his walks with the Kentucky Humane Society staff. Bentley loves people, and he’d rather not share them with other pets. We recommend he be your one and only pet. He’s neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet him at our adoption center in the Springhurst Feeders Supply, 9485 Brownsboro Road in Louisville. Idella is a gorgeous 7-year-old, full-figured gal in need of some love. This cat-nip crazy feline came to the Kentucky Humane Society in April when her owner became allergic to her and has been looking for a kind family to love ever since. Idella is a playful girl who loves, loves, loves toys! While Idella has tested positive for FIV, that doesn’t mean she can’t live a healthy, normal life. Her status does mean she should be either the only cat in the home or she should live with other cats who are also FIV positive. Idella is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Come visit this lovely lady at our East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane in Louisville.

For more on any of our adoptable pets, please call 502.366.3355 or visit kyhumane.org
