This week’s feature story on Signature Chefs Auction to benefit March of Dimes Louisville is a very personal one to me. I’ve been an enormous fan of the event for years. In a city stacked with some of the most talented chefs in the country, the ability to taste 30 of the best in one night is akin to discovering a pot of gold – it’s a mythical level of wonder. A few years ago, I was asked to serve as one of the judges for the tasting event, and in my excitement, I made no account for pace or portion. By about halfway through the participating restaurants, I realized how illequipped I was for this assignment. For the years that followed, I learned to make better decisions about my tasting strategy, but the one thing that didn’t change was the intense emotion I felt at the end of each annual Signature Chefs Auction. I would sob through the presentation of what March of Dimes calls their Ambassador Family. We often hear the tragic phrase “a life gone too soon,” but these stories were about a life that began too soon. They involved helpless babies struggling to breath, to eat, to live. At the event in 2013, I grabbed my husband’s hand under our table during the presentation, emotions elevated with the fresh news that we were expecting our first child. Never could I have imagined that two years later, it would be my family on that stage sharing our story of my son’s premature birth – born at 29 weeks and weighing just over two pounds. When I was rushed to the hospital with preterm labor symptoms, there was a list of standard Tonya Abeln questions that the nurse was required to ask me regardless of my circumstances. One I remember was, “Do you have a car seat for your baby?” The truth was, I didn’t. We didn’t have anything ready for this baby yet. I recall thinking, “Please tell me that this baby will actually leave this hospital in a car seat eventually.” Seventy days later, he did. He left in a car seat strapped to an oxygen tank and a breathing monitor that made a firetruck siren sound like a sweet lullaby. In our most fear-filled moments during those 70 days in the NICU, I clung to the hope that was provided to me by the research of the March of Dimes and the stories of struggle that culminated with happy endings at Signature Chefs Auction. We were honored to serve as the Ambassador Family for Signature Chefs in 2015, and I’m equal parts delighted and humiliated to report that during the ceremony, our son was showing out and acting up like any typical 1-year-old. My gratitude to March of Dimes is endless, and I look forward to another exciting year of supporting this special cause.

Food and family are at the heart of the March of Dimes’ Signature Chefs Auction Story by Graham Pilotte • Photos by Ryan Noltemeyer

hen a couple is given the happy news that they are adding to their family with a baby, the enthusiastic planning begins. There are car seats to test, nurseries to decorate and names to choose as the nesting begins. When the news delivered is that the family is multiplying with twins, the planning and excitement doubles, but then again, so do the concerns of all that could possibly go wrong before they enter the world.

For Sarah Spencer, those concerns caught her unexpectedly off-guard in the middle of a normal, healthy pregnancy. “Everything was on track,” she recalls, “and then, out of nowhere, I was in labor. With twins, you don’t expect to get to full-term, but we never imagined delivering at only 28 weeks. It was very unexpected, very shocking – the last thing we were expecting to find out.” Sarah found herself in the hospital in Labor and Delivery for six excruciating and difficult days, going into labor far

too early. “I set some goals to try and buy the boys as much time as I could,” she says. “Through research that the March of Dimes has done, I knew that could give them the best fighting chance. Those six days really helped the boys when they were born.” Stories like these are all too familiar to the March of Dimes. It’s a national organization, originally founded by Franklin Delano Roosevelt to fight polio; when the polio vaccine eradicated that disease, the March of Dimes moved

lar Door Chocolates, Harvest and Bistro 1860. “Some restaurants serve hors d’oeuvres, or a new dish they’re going to launch on their winter menu, or a sample of a signature dish,” Moore says. “It’s a great way to feel a part of the restaurant community for an evening. It’s such a talented group of chefs and restaurant owners who have a passion for philanthropy and want to give back to the community.”

The Spencers, March of Dimes 2016 Ambassador Family. on to fighting infant mortality. “The March of Dimes organization is talking about our most vulnerable population,” adds Sarah’s husband Brad Spencer. “These days, you have babies born at 25 weeks, and a couple decades ago, that was never even a possibility. You have families’ lives that are changed forever and babies that are born with a much higher chance of having a normal childhood and adulthood.” Research has led to greater developmental and medical knowledge that helped infants like the Spencer twins grow until they could both breathe and eat on their own – the criteria for allowing a premature infant to leave the hospital. The March of Dimes also provided support in the form of meetings, connections with other parents and families, and educational research to prepare the new parents for what would happen as their babies developed. “You never know if you’re going to be a family that is affected by the March of Dimes,” Sarah says. “Our boys spent 63 days in the hospital before they could come home. It was definitely a long roller coaster ride, but we were fortunate to have a happy ending to our story.” Now, their vibrant and healthy 2-year-old twin boys will serve as the poster children for March of Dimes Louisville as the Spencer family gives back to the organization by serving as the 2016 Ambassador Family for this year’s Signature Chefs Auction, a food-tasting event held at the Louisville Marriott Downtown on November 10 with more than 30 local chefs and restaurants participating. Stephanie Renner, general counsel for PBI Bank and chair of the event, describes what guests have come to expect from the annual celebrated event. “The best chefs in Louisville O C T O B E R 2 7 , 2 0 1 6 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E .

prepare a tasting of the food from their restaurants,” she explains. “There’s an open bar, an amazing live auction and a fantastic silent auction. You will hear about the mission of the March of Dimes through an ambassador family who tells their experience with premature birth.” She has been involved for years. “It’s very moving,” asserts Renner, “and it’s a cause everyone can get behind. We like to say that everyone is a March of Dimes baby because the research and the funding that have gone to preventing premature birth has really benefited us all.”

Moore’s restaurant, Volare Italian Ristorante, will participate in Signature Chefs as well. “I myself was born two months premature at 7 months old,” Moore says. He quickly follows up with a joke. “I made up for it because I’m a big guy,” he says with a heartfelt laugh. But the poignancy isn’t lost; the March of Dimes and its mission has a very real and lasting impact on the babies that are born premature, an impact that lasts all the way into adulthood. “It’s just amazing to be able to help out,” Moore says. The fundraising event will also feature both live and silent auctions. Dorothy Menish, the auction chair, explains that the auctions add a lot of spirit to the gala. “It’s not your traditional event,” she explains. “We raise money, but what we do is like a big cocktail party. We try to get people engaged, to have fun, to learn about March of Dimes and to raise a ton of money. We have all these chefs, all the food stations, which in turn is great for the restaurants. This is one of the most fun events I’ve ever been involved in, and it’s for a great

“Our boys spent 63 days in the hospital before they could come home. It was definitely a long roller coaster ride, but we were fortunate to have a happy ending to our story.” -SARAH SPENCER The event has been touted as one of the best tasting events in Louisville, and in a city renowned for its incredible inventive culinary talent, that is saying a lot. Signature Chefs Auction’s Head Chef Josh Moore of Volare agrees, stating, “It’s definitely an opportunity to interact with the chefs and meet them but also to try a lot of great food. On top of that, it’s such a great cause.” The list of participating restaurants spans a variety of food genres and includes many Louisville favorites, among them Anoosh, River House, Vincenzo’s, Cel-

cause.” Dorothy’s husband, Bill Menish is the auctioneer. “I’ve been blown away by how incredible an event Signature Chefs is, and to join in was so tremendous,” he says. “There’s a big bourbon theme – no surprise there. There are experiences, trips, tremendous live auction items that people put so much time into generating – we’re great advocates of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, beyond the red velvet rope, you-have-to-get-it-today type auction packag-


Signature Chefs’ silent auction also adds something different from the typical ball or gala. “It’s a great interaction,” Bill says. “Most people are there because they understand, they want to give, and there’s different levels to give. They gather there for those babies, the children that need their help. It shows the support for the March of Dimes on behalf of the entire Louisville community.” One can sense a universal enthusiasm surrounding Signature Chefs. “Our involvement is from the heart,” Dorothy explains. “If you want to have fun, be inspired and be proud of what you’re supporting, the March of Dimes event is the one. You’ll be thrilled to attend an event that touches these delicate lives because of what the March of Dimes provides, and you’ll leave being proud of the support that you’ve offered. It’s a must-attend.”

more so. Premature babies are, as Brad Spencer puts it, our most vulnerable population. Because of the March of Dimes, some of these children have a fighting chance that they might not otherwise have had. Families now have a chance to watch their babies grow up. “No one ever thinks they’re going to need this kind of help – and then something unexpected happens, and March of Dimes is there,” Dorothy says sincerely. “This is how we can help your baby and how we can help you.” The Spencers know this all too well, and they are grateful for their happy ending. “(Our twins) are perfect in every way, shape

and form,” Sarah says with love in her voice. “They’re developmentally on track with fullterm babies. They love running and playing outside and talk nonstop; they’re the two smartest little boys I’ve ever met.” She pauses. “We can’t say enough great things about the work the March of Dimes does and their mission and all the nurses and doctors that helped to take care of our boys when they were born. I couldn’t be more thankful.” VT The March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction takes place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 10, at the Louisville Marriott Downtown.

Blending fresh designs with the timeless beauty of traditional objet d’art, the team at Dolfinger’s is committed to helping customers express their lifestyles and celebrate special occasions. Manager Anne Luvisi describes the Chenoweth Square location as a full-service tabletop, gift and registry shop. As the store’s only full-time employee with 20 years under her belt, Luvisi handles all of the buying – along with about a million other things – so she knows Dolfinger’s merchandise like the back of her hand.

A great opportunity to peruse the merchandise is coming up on November 4 during the Chenoweth Square Holiday Walk 2016. The annual event, which runs from 5 to 9 p.m., promises refreshments, carols and lots of shopping. Clients who just need a quick gift can pop into Dolfinger’s on Retail Row at The Galt House Hotel. Geared toward travelers and people who work downtown, this location doesn’t carry full table settings, but it does have a variety of gift items, home accents, jewelry and mint julep cups. And of course, the selection wouldn’t be complete without a variety of Derby items, including the official Churchill Downs luxury gift collection. Though the two locations differ slightly in merchandise, both do have one thing in common: exceptional customer service. Unlike big

box stores, where shoppers often have to search for assistance, the staff at Dolfinger’s is always readily available to help find the perfect present, recommend a table setting, start a gift registry or answer questions. “You’ll never walk around looking for someone,” Luvisi says. “We gift wrap, we deliver, we ship, we take phone orders and online orders. We go above and beyond – we also do research for people.” Sometimes, that research happens weeks after a gift has been purchased and received. “I had a customer call me one time, many years ago,” Luvisi recalls. “She was upset about a thank-you note she had gotten.” Apparently, the customer received a very nice letter from her newly-married friend, showing appreciation for the adorable sauce ladle she received. The problem was, the customer didn’t buy her a sauce ladle – and she wanted an explanation for the mix-up. Luvisi checked the records and couldn’t understand why everything seemed to align correctly with her client’s gift order. Everything, that is, except for the thank-you card. “It took us a while to figure out what had happened,” Luvisi laughs. “What she thought was a sauce ladle was actually a candle sniffer, which was the gift that was purchased.” Another case of mistaken gift identity that Luvisi experienced involved a beautiful set of wine coasters. “She didn’t drink much,” Luvisi says of the recipient, “and she thanked her guest for plant holders.” Sauce ladle or candle sniffer, wine coaster or plant holder – even if gifts from Dolfinger’s aren’t used for their original purposes, they’re always loved and cherished nonetheless.

business briefs ST. LEONARD SCHOOL AMONG EARLY USERS OF SMART TECHNOLOGY TO STOP THE SPREAD OF FLU IN SCHOOL As schools prepare to fight the flu season, St. Leonard School (440 Zorn Ave.) hopes to keep more kids healthy with the help of Kinsa Smart Thermometers. Selected as one of just 500 schools nationwide (one of nine in Kentucky and one of two in Jefferson County) to participate in Kinsa’s FLUency school health program, all St. Leonard families will receive free Kinsa Smart Thermometers, priced at $19.99 retail. With this tool, families can see aggregated, anonymous information on any symptoms and illnesses going around the school. Seventh-grade students in Mrs. Caitlin Ousley’s science class at St. Leonard will be aggregating the data from the app and analyzing it to learn how the disease spreads. They also will learn about public health initiatives that can help stop the spread of disease and practice communication methods to spread the word on preventative care. “Our top priority is keeping our students in class learning,” explained Ousley. “With this innovative program, we hope to see the trends affecting our classrooms so that we can contain the spread of illness, increase attendance and continue giving our students the education they deserve.” PERSONAL STORIES OF PEARL HARBOR COME TO THE FRAZIER Opened to the public on October 25 in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the attack, the Frazier Museum presents “A Morning That Changed the World: Personal Stories of Pearl Harbor.” The immersive, thought-provoking exhibition delves into this fateful event with stories told by people who experienced this moment in history. The exhibit features the Rex Knight Collection of letters, photographs and mementos from both servicemen and civilians that will leave visitors with a heightened feeling of a connection to the individuals that experienced those long two hours of horror and chaos. The result was not only vulnerability and fear, but also anger, nationalism and patriotism. The world was forever changed. As visitors step into the exhibit, they will be transported to December 6, 1941 – the evening before the attack. With the sounds of glasses clinking and music playing, the innocent and joyous atmosphere of a party in the Officer’s Club on the island sets the stage for what life was like before the profound and unforeseen events that are about to take place. On that clear and beautiful evening, Lt. General Walter Short looked out onto the lights of all of the ships in Pearl Harbor and noted, “What a target that would make!” Visitors walk through the hallway of a battleship as they arrive to that fateful morning and find themselves standing under a Japanese fighter plane. With objects, mementos, letters, visuals and sound, the attack and the immediate aftermath come to life through the stories of the servicemen and civilians that experienced the attack. THE AL J.

CHURCHILL DOWNS INVESTS $16 MILLION INTO UPGRADES FOR CLUBHOUSE’S SECOND FLOOR Churchill Downs Racetrack, one of the world’s most recognized sports venues, has announced a $16 million capital project to modernize the second floor of the famed facility’s Clubhouse – the latest investment in an on-going series of upgrades to improve and enhance the customer experience at the home of the Kentucky Derby.

CONDE NAST TRAVELER RECOGNIZES BROWN HOTEL

Over 300,000 dedicated readers – nearly twice as many as last year – cast votes for 7,394 hotels around the world. The Readers’ Choice Awards winners are in the November issue of the popular travel magazine, now on newsstands. The full list is published online at cntraveler.com/rca. The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” Under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán, the Readers’ Choice Awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers. The Brown Hotel jumped 18 spots after last year’s award of No. 28 of the Top 30 Hotels in the South and earned a 94.41 rating overall. LOUISVILLE LEADS THE WAY IN LGBTQ EQUALITY At a time when many states have failed to extend LGBTQinclusive laws and policies, Louisville is stepping up to ensure that all citizens are treated equally, according to a report issued by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC), the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization. HRC’s 2016 Municipal Equality Index (MEI) shows that around the country, cities are fueling momentum for LGBTQ equality -- and often are doing so in states that still don’t have LGBTQinclusive non-discrimination laws at the state level. In Kentucky, Louisville earned over 85 points on the 2016 MEI despite hailing from a state without LGBTQ-inclusive statewide non-discrimination laws. Across the country, 37 cities like these set a standard of LGBTQ inclusiveness with exemplary, best-practice policies such as local non-discrimination laws, providing transgender-inclusive health benefits for city employees, and offering LGBTQ-inclusive city services. Shining like a beacon of hope, Louisville earned one of HRC’s 37 MEI “All Star” designations. MEI All Stars are cities nationwide that are excelling by advancing LGBTQ equality without relying on state law. This year, Louisville earned 100 points. Louisville earned 100 points last year as well. The average score for cities in Kentucky is 52 out of 100 points, which falls below the national average of 55. THE GALT HOUSE HOTEL WELCOMES NICK BRINER AS NEW GENERAL MANAGER The Galt House Hotel is pleased to announce the hiring of Nick Briner as general manager of the Galt House Hotel. “It is an honor to be appointed general manager of the legendary Galt House Hotel and to have the opportunity to work with an amazing team that is known for providing outstanding southern hospitality,” said Briner. “My goal is to create memorable experiences for our guests to engender loyalty to the Galt House Hotel and Louisville.” Nick’s hospitality career spans over three decades, with over 20 years at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas, a 1,606 room Four Diamond hotel with 350,000 square feet of meeting space.

Was It Ever in Doubt? Nah!

was looking like a team that would keep finding a way to lose.

Catnip

Stoops may have turned the corner this month as a college head football coach. And Kentucky may have stepped up a rung or two on the respectability ladder.

Not to get complacent. (What UK football fan ever enjoys complacency?) The Cats still have to be nervous, going forward, about their passing game. Several key injuries still have to be sorted out. Landon Young? Denzil Ware? Jojo Kemp? And this is still a program that has to put its previous season meltdowns in the attic and forget about them.

STEVE KAUFMAN

Blame some comfortably reliable targets. There were a few: Stephen Johnson, for not protecting the ball yet again; Mark Stoops, for some reason going for two points early in the third quarter to try tying a 14-12 game – it failed, making all that last-minute suspense necessary; Dorian Baker, for (been there, done that) dropping a sure touchdown pass in the end zone; and the officials, for failing to call a couple of penalties on Mississippi State that got even my dog screaming at the set. (He has little tolerance for mailmen, UPS drivers and incompetent referees.) But Kentucky did what it had to do in this, the biggest win of the Stoops Era. And that is pretty amazing, considering that this 4-3 bunch seemed, just a few weeks ago, fated for something like a 2-10 season. It

Next week comes Missouri, 2-5, losers to Middle Tennessee State 51-45. In other words, beatable. But I sense this UK team believes in itself, on both sides of the line. Austin MacGinnis seems finally to be healthy, all-SEC-level again. And it has two of the most efficient ball-carriers in the conference. I discovered last week that Benny Snell Jr. is actually a cousin of another tough, gritty ball-carrier. I saw Matt Snell punish Big Ten teams for three years in the early-mid1960s as a fullback alongside Paul Warfield in

the Ohio State backfield. Joe Namath got all the publicity for the Jets’ Super Bowl upset in 1969, but Snell carried the ball 30 times for 121 hard yards to seal the 16-7 win. He was the game’s real MVP. I’m just saying, Benny Snell Jr. – like all good racehorses – has the requisite bloodline. ROUNDBALLS IN THE AIR Speaking of impressive bloodlines, what we saw on Friday – and yes, it was just a scrimmage – was another extraordinary array of Kentucky basketball talent. De’Aaron Fox looks like the second coming of John Wall. Isaiah Briscoe has clearly upped his offensive game as well as his confidence. Malik Monk, who would be the star on 97 percent of college basketball teams, almost faded into the background during the BlueWhite Scrimmage were it not for a couple of memorable dunks. In other words, another John Calipari team that is backcourt-loaded. However, so was last year’s team. But despite Briscoe, Jamal Murray and Tyler Ulis, the team underperformed all season, right up to a second round exit from the tournament, because of lack of a power game inside. This club seems much more balanced than last year’s. (Although, in mid-October a year ago, we were all convinced that Skal Labissiere would be a dominant game-changer.) But balance is only an asset if it’s used. Right now, Kentucky has three guards who are all highly comfortable with the ball. They all see the path to the rim as their own personal autobahn – no speed limits, no stop signs, shift into high gear and pedal to the metal. Which is fine, it’s the essence of Cal’s beloved dribble-drive, but only if it involves everyone else on the floor. And not just alleyoops to Bam but also inside-out kicks to the perimeter, to maximize the shooting talents of Derek Willis, Dominique Hawkins, maybe Sacha Killeya-Jones and, interestingly, Mychal Mulder (who looked, based on the scrimmage – and yes, it was just a scrimmage – as if he has carved a place for himself). Of course, if we see it, Cal sees it. Bringing brash young guards into some form of a disciplined game has been his challenge almost his entire college coaching career. In the meantime, I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to watch De’Aaron Fox for an entire season. VT

harlie Strong’s time at Texas is coming to an end. That much appears clear.

in December 2011 when his name was being linked to a number of coaching vacancies. At a press conference leading up to the Cardinals’ Belk Bowl game against NC State, Strong recalled a talk he’d had with former UofL head coach John L. Smith years earlier.

The former UofL head coach who left the Derby City at the beginning “I remember having a converof 2014 to try his hand at leading one MIKE sation with Coach Smith when I of the richest and most powerful programs in college football has gone just RUTHERFORD found out that Tom [Jurich] was @cardchronicle considering me, and he told me 14-18 in two-and-a-half seasons in that leaving Louisville was the bigAustin, and is in danger of failing to lead Texas to a bowl game for a second straight gest mistake he ever made,” Strong said. “He year. Reports have been swirling for weeks now told me, ‘If you get that job, don’t ever leave.’” that the Longhorn brass already has a plan to Smith was speaking from experience. fire Strong at the end of the season and replace In the middle of Louisville’s 2002 GMAC him with Houston coach Tom Herman. Bowl loss to Marshall, word leaked that Smith While Louisville fans will forever be indebt- would soon be accepting the head coaching job ed to Strong for the job he did getting the Car- at Michigan State. The buzz was so loud that dinals back on their feet following the disaster Jurich had to hold a bizarre press conference at that was the Steve Kragthorpe era, there is an “I halftime of the game just to address it. told you so” element to the saga we’re all watchLife as a head coach never got better for ing unfold in Austin. It’s not just because Strong seemed like an odd fit for a job that comes with Smith, who was fired after producing a losing more media demands and scrutiny than any record in three of his four seasons in East Lanother in the country, but because we’ve seen this sing. Six years later, he went 4-8 while serving as the interim head coach at Arkansas (ironicalhappen before. A few times. ly, filling in for an abruptly fired Bobby Petrino) Life has been unkind over the last handful and has since moved from Fort Lewis College to of decades to the coaches who have enjoyed the head coaching job at Kentucky State.

chain” seems even more foolish now than it did 13 years ago. One coach who didn’t burn any bridges after leaving Louisville was Howard Schnellenberger, who took the program to once unthinkable heights before bolting for Oklahoma following the 1994 season. He was fired after one 5-5-1 season in Norman and didn’t get another shot as a head coach until starting the program at Florida Atlantic in 2001. Schnellenberger remembered the move with regret earlier this year on 93.9 The Ville. “I divorced them when I took that job at Oklahoma, and it was the biggest mistake of my life,” he said. “But when I came back to my hometown as a lost son, they turned me into a prodigal son. From the bottom of my heart, I thank Louisville fans for that. They never turned their backs on me, even though it may have seemed like I turned my back on them.” With Petrino back at the helm after his own unceremonious exit a decade ago, forgiveness is a trait that is once again serving Louisville football fans well. Without it, the Cardinals might not be a top five team chasing a national championship. Sometimes the grass on the other side of the fence only looks greener because you haven’t taken enough time recently to pay attention to the beauty of your own yard. It’s a brutal lesson that Strong is in the process of learning, but one that history should have already taught him. VT V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M • O C T O B E R 2 7 , 2 0 1 6

Cole Hikutini is the second leading receiver for No. 5 UofL. The California native had 27 catches in the Cards first seven games for 393 yards and four touchdowns. He had six catches for a career-high 118 yards and a score in UofL’s 54-13 win over NC State on October 22. What did you know about Louisville before you arrived? Not much really, other than the basketball team and Coach Petrino being here. I didn’t really know much about Kentucky, didn’t really know where it was, but I’m happy that I’m here.

tain things to get there, and I felt that he was going to be in the best situation to do so.

Taylor’s 10

Was there a moment when you realized that Coach Petrino sees everything on the field?

KENT TAYLOR

Coach P. said to me, I don’t know verbatim what he said, but he said WAVE3 Sports something like, eight years ago, go look at a game when he was at I’d say the weather – it being Arkansas. He said go look at D.J. Williams, about 72 degrees every day – but this is my third quarter against Auburn, how he ran this new home. route. I think he said the play and everything word for word what it was, and sure enough, What was going through your mind I did look it up, just to see if he really knew when you tried to hurdle an NC State what he was talking about. And it was exactdefender? ly where he said it was. He remembers everyI really couldn’t tell you what I was think- thing. ing, but I was running. Usually people go low, try to hit me low, and I thought he was going Coach Petrino has said that he can to do that and he thought differently. So we recall a specific throw from Lamar both jumped up and he hit me in my legs, or Jackson early in practice last season my groin actually. I probably should have run as the moment he realized Lamar was around him, tried to juke him or run through special. Is there a moment that stands him. I guess I got a cool picture so. out for you? What do you miss about California?

Have your teammates brought that up once or twice?

I don’t think there’s just one moment. He

does that all the time. It’s kind of crazy watching, going back and watching film of practice. They don’t tackle him, but he’s still juking people five yards away from him and then the throws he makes are just on the helmet almost every time. How much pride does the rest of the team take in the fact that he’s the Heisman Trophy front runner? Oh yeah, we’re all behind him, support him, want him to win. It looks good on us too. More attention to us, more praise for us, but he’s a phenomenal athlete and his play speaks for itself. You are involved with a lot off the field, community events. What do you get out of those? It’s definitely humbling. I just want to give back. We have a camp for kids with cancer, and those kids, in their situations, the easiest thing we can do is say hi and go hang out for an hour or two and it makes their day. So anything that puts a smile on their face and they’re all fans, they all support us, so giving back to them can make a huge difference to them. VT

I don’t think I’m going to live it down for the rest of the season. The training staff too brings it up. It is what it is. It’s a good laugh. Is the production that you’re having this year about what you expected last season before all the nagging injuries? Yes, I just want to win, do whatever I can to help the team, but yeah, this is the season I expected. I can always do better, blocking, running after the catch, better decision-making, maybe not jump over someone standing up. Is there a tight end in particular that had success in this offense and drew you to this offense? I knew about Gary Barnidge definitely but I just knew how Coach Petrino used tight ends, and that was a focal point on recruiting me. He likes to use tight ends in pass game, run game, basically just NFL-style tight ends. That really attracted my eye. I mean, I want to go to the NFL eventually.

Titans Taking No Prisoners

efore this 2016 soccer season, Louisville Collegiate was clear on the team’s talented arsenal. With clear objectives and goals being achieved, the Titans stand as the No. 1 team in the state and the 15th best team in the nation, all while steamrolling their opponents thus far.

High School Sports Report

RANDY WHETSTONE JR.

“We knew this year we were going to have a strong team,” said head coach Chad Wozniak. “The coaches and the boys have enjoyed it and have been in great spirit and having a lot of fun – which is a lot easier to do when you are having a winning season.” Collegiate has had a winning season all right, but the way in which they have been winning is what’s left people astonished. Holding a 23-11 dominating record has come along with 22 straight victories, 13 shut outs and an average margin of victory of six goals. Wozniak says that what his team has accomplished has been “unheard of.” In such a historic season, the Titans have simply been checking goals off their list. “In the first week, even in the preseason, we set up some goals to have,” he adds. “I said I wanted them to be realistic goals and goals that will be difficult to achieve. The goals they came up with: They said they wanted to be a top 10

O C T O B E R 2 7 , 2 0 1 6 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

team in the state. We achieved that pretty quickly. They also said they wanted to win the All-A state title. They did that in convincing fashion. Somebody said they wanted to break into the top 25 in the country, and we chuckled at that, but deep down inside I said, ‘You can do it.’ I knew we had the potential to do it, and the final goal is to win the regular state title.”

A state championship seems to be well within their grasp, and with a unit that is firing on all cylinders, the only thing that would seem to slow them down would be themselves. But Wozniak says his team has learned how to turn it on and turn it off. Off the field, they goof around and enjoy the fun in the game, but when they’re on the field, their determination and competitive drive is exceedingly palpable. “They are very lethal. The style of play that we have – I have been coaching soccer for over 20 years and have been a very competitive club and high school coach – is pretty fascinating,” he shares. “We have had coaches, players and referees after games come up and talk to us and say they absolutely enjoyed watching us play – even teams that we just played. I kind of relate to college basketball: You have an up and down, up-tempo type of offense, and we just go. We are a team that likes to maintain possession of the ball and get the other team disorganized. And we attack.”

22

Such a remarkable season has not come without some growing pains. It didn’t take long for Collegiate to endure an unpleasant experience early on in the season. Wozniak recalls during the first week, the team played St. X, and their best player Haji Abdikadir received a red card and was ejected from the game. The Titans came up a short, losing to St. X only to go down to South Warren and finish in a 2-2 tie. So after a 1-1-1 start, Wozniak told his guys it was a “blessing in disguise” in that the team learned they could still perform at a high level even when short-handed. “We weren’t able after one week to get ahead of ourselves. We quickly realized that reality set in. This fascinating season they are having, I think I can contribute that to starting off with a win, a loss and a tie in the first week. I truly believe that didn’t sit well with the boys. Since that first week, they have had one thing on their mind and that is to go out and win, and to win big.” All this positive attention is without a doubt only going to benefit the program going forward. Considering the amount of phone calls, emails and articles written about Collegiate boys’ soccer, the team seems absolutely poised for success. It has grabbed the attention of so many, including potential students and student athletes who’ve visited the school and have seen a program filled with players and coaches relishing the limelight. All are waiting to see if they’ll stand under the bright lights as state champion. VT

MALE vs. MANUAL

Male and Manual put on a show for the estimated crowd of 7,000 that turned up to watch the “old rivalry” between the two take place. While Manual had a tough offensive showing in the first half, Male refused to lose to the Crimsons. Male’s Nathan Hobbs had a game-ending interception and returned it 95 yards for a touchdown, which led to the final score of 27-14, Male.

Brian Smith (25) and Marcis Floyd (2) locked their eyes on the incoming ball.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN BIRTHDAY

Reagan Buschmann was born smack dab on Halloween. This year, he turns 4 and had a spectacular birthday party produced and directed by his father Will Buschmann. For the record, this is the third Halloween extravaganza Reagan has had. He may grow up thinking that the holiday was created to celebrate his birth.

Last Thursday they held their big annual fundraiser called Butterflies in Motion at the Brown Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom. It is a luncheon with tables based on and decorated to represent different motion pictures. Dan Schusterman enlisted the aid of Jan Corum to design and decorate his “Pirates of the Caribbean” table. Janice and Fred Mueller asked Mark Eliason to help with the shopping bag covered “Clueless” table. Eleanor Goldberg’s “Halloween” themed table fit perfectly with the fact that her birthday is on Halloween and it is her favorite holiday. The NTS table featured the movie “Ali,” and all of the table’s guests wore white satin boxing robes with “ALI” emblazoned on the back. Ann Stroth decorated the Kosair Charities table with a “Mary Poppins” theme that included a carpet bag and an umbrella with a parrot head. LG&E and KU Energy LLC chose “A Christmas Story” for their theme and even had it decorated with electric lights. No wonder. The judges for best table design were Julius Friedman, Jacque Parsley and Ed Hamilton. They awarded first place to the Beckie Ennis/Younger Woman’s Club “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” table where all of the guests wore black student robes and carried magic wands. The live auction was a great success with Angela Leet buying the right to be a character in Sue Grafton’s final alphabet mystery book “Z is for Zero” that comes out in 2019. Monique Baker got a restaurant gift package containing more than 65 gift cards valued at nearly $7,000. Fred and Janice Mueller won the New York theatre package that contained two tickets to the New York production of “Hamilton.” While event co-chair Libby Parkinson is still counting receipts and collecting the bills, she is feeling really confident that when all is counted including the support of major sponsors Mueller Environmental Designs, Kosair Charities, KinPHOTOS COURTESY OF CARLA SUE BROECKER

BREAST CANCER SPOTLIGHT Pat Harrison Resource Center

P

Written by Wes Kerrick

at Harrison is the kind of person who moves from inspiration to action in a heartbeat. A real estate broker by trade, the Southern Indiana woman is an active mover and shaker in the local charitable scene. In June 2013 when Harrison found herself confronted with a missing link in the local cancer recovery network, she naturally took matters into her own hands. The pivotal encounter came in the wake of some distressing news. “When you hear, ‘You have cancer,’ it just gets you,” she recalls. “I mean, there’s almost a silent minute that you just say, ‘Me? I didn’t know it’d be me. I thought it’d be someone else.’” But Harrison’s doctors had caught her breast cancer early, and treatment was relatively simple. She had surgery on a Friday; the following Monday, she sold a house. Though she didn’t expect to need any of their resources, Harrison paid a visit to a center that provided wigs and prosthetic bras to women with breast cancer. The wigs were all in a bag and had yet to be washed.

Looking around the building – a renovated historic home – Harrison couldn’t be happier.

steady stream of women who seek her out in her new role.

“It’s just beautiful. ... Just enough crown molding to give it a charming feeling – not over the edge. You don’t feel like you’re in a museum, and yet you don’t feel like you’re in a hospital.”

For Harrison, it’s profoundly satisfying to see cancer patients come and find help.

A plaque near the front desk lauds Harrison’s vision and generosity, which, along with many other contributions from the community, made the center a reality. Harrison says she can’t read that plaque without tearing up. Anyone who has contended with cancer can stop in to borrow books from a modest but growing medical library, or to find camaraderie with other cancer patients. A selection of well-maintained wigs and hats are available to those who need them. Massages are available by appointment. All the services and products are free of charge. The center is staffed full-time by Abby Parrish, a certified mastectomy fitter. Having already earned a strong reputation before joining the resource center, Parrish has attracted a

“You just want to hug them and say, ‘I hope that your journey is made easier by this process or by this program or by my efforts.” Harrison says the center is the first of its kind in Clark County, where, for many residents, getting help in their own community is a lot more convenient than driving across the bridge to visit similar places in Louisville. Beginning November 7, the center will host a professionally led support group for caregivers. The group will meet the first Monday of each month from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Looking over the wig and hat room, an idea suddenly occurs to Harrison about how she could get more hats. In a moment, she has a strategy, and she immediately tells Parrish. Their anticipation and passion for this work never ends. VT For more information, call the Norton Cancer Institute Pat Harrison Resource Center at 812.288.1156.

“I said, ‘This is unacceptable. It’s just repulsive. There’s not one good thing about it. And after just having been told you have cancer – breast or any kind – this is a horrible place to come.’” Harrison went back to her real estate office in New Albany and called everyone she knew who might be able to help her. The initial plan was to fix up the existing center. Among Harrison’s exhaustive list of contacts was her longtime friend Joyce Meyer, a financial services executive, who arranged for Harrison to meet with her sister Lynnie Meyer, Norton Healthcare’s system vice president for women’s and children’s community partnerships. Adds Harrison, “That was the beginning of this whole wonderful story.” In February 2016, the Norton Cancer Institute Pat Harrison Resource Center opened at 1206 Spring St. in Jeffersonville.

Eventually, the initiative gained enough traction to benefit other

When she first appeared on “Top Model” Cycle 13, Kirkpatrick quickly became a fan-favorite with a mix of Southern charm and the trademark fierceness required to stay afloat in the competition. The same girl who was excelling in photo shoots and weekly challenges, however, had struggled with the common learning disability from a young age.

That goal to lift up the next generation extends to the designers contributing the fashions. Twelve designers are included in this year’s show, all from Louisville or nearby areas. Among them is “Project Runway” All-Star Gunnar Deatherage, another beloved reality competitor who, like Kirkpatrick, transcended Kentucky roots to pursue high-fashion prominence on the small screen. Asa Lyons of Exult, Tyler Grube, Kristina Sellers of Kilika Couture and Frances Lewis of Ann DeEvelyn Clothing Co. are among the other designers showcasing ’70s-inspired street styles and couture ensembles. “We like that we’re supporting artists and not just big name brands,” she says, noting that adherence to authenticity is crucial to the event’s overall mission. Since everyone behind the scenes is a volunteer, 100 percent of profits from the show go to the charities involved. Kirkpatrick sings praises for PLAY Louisville’s flexibility and accommodation, as venue has been the biggest and most expensive obstacle in years past, she says. “Not worrying about that as much has allowed us to focus on the bigger issues and making it a grander show.” Highlights include pop-up shops for each designer before the show starts, a silent auction for some select pieces, and the Greentree Beauty squad on hand for guest touch-ups as the night heats up.

“I was really embarrassed because they do the Cover Girl commercials and we had to read from a teleprompter,” she recalls. “Being dyslexic, that was really hard on me. My confidence was terrible because of it.” A good friend on the show encouraged Kirkpatrick to stay the course and find her voice. She openly discussed being dyslexic, resulting in a lasting impact long after she placed runner-up. “When I got home, I had all these emails from other people who are dyslexic saying how much it meant to them. That’s how my charity started.”

Guests are encouraged to bring a donation of toiletry items or a used coat to go to the Lexington Hope Center. (Monetary donations will also be accepted.) General admission for the show is $25 at the door, and preferred seating reservations are available on eventbrite. com. The event begins with drinks and designer networking at 6 p.m. before the show commences at 7. Guests are encouraged to dress for a disco flashback. VT

The more serious melanomas can be fatal if left untreated, but even basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas can be serious if left untreated.

NUPTIALS

Michelle Cheek AND Jim Ellis For Michelle Cheek and Jim Ellis, it was most important to be surrounded by loved ones on their intimate wedding day, even those who could not physically be among the guests. For that reason, many of the thoughtful details contained within their nuptials were a tribute to family members who had passed on. Jim wore a tuxedo owned by his late father, Dr. Rudy Ellis, previously of Ellis & Badenhausen, who had served as the beloved team physician for University of Louisville sports for years. Michelle carried a bouquet made entirely of brooches she had collected for years from her mother, grandmother and Jim’s mother. Beside them stood their siblings; Michelle’s identical twin sister, Monica Howe, served as the maid of honor and Jim’s brother, Dr. John Ellis, was the best man. Close friend of the couple Judge Denise Clayton officiated the ceremony while their neighbor, Governor Matt Bevin, witnessed from the small group of guests gathered in the formal living room of the couple’s home, the same home built by the groom’s late parents. As guests entered the newly renovated home, they signed their best wishes onto a chalkboard bearing photographs of the groom’s parents and the bride’s grandparents to further include the memory of the family members on the important day.

The colors for the wedding were inspired by the bride’s turquoise Steve Madden d’orsay pumps leading to blueberry roses, peacock feathers and fuchsia flowers. Michelle found the dress she had always imagined while boutique shopping in Naples Florida – a strapless, ivory, tea-length dress with a full petticoat. Jim Ellis is an attorney who also serves as chairman of the board of the Louisville Metro Police Foundation and the previous president of the Kentucky Athletic Association. Michelle Cheek Ellis works for Seiller Waterman, LLC and is a new member of the Louisville Metro Police Department 5th Division Advisory Committee while attending the 27th class of the Louisville Metro Police Department Citizens Police Academy.

For those in need of the perfect holiday recipes, look no further than the Junior League cookbook. The first cookbook in their series, “The Cooking Book,” was published in 1978 and contained 39 Derby menus. In 1988, they followed up with “Cordon Bluegrass.” “Splendor in the Bluegrass,” their 2000 cookbook, was the first to feature recipes from prominent local chefs. Current Junior League of Louisville members gathered in the Cherokee Gardens home of past JLL president Lisa Causarano Morley to share some of their favorite fall recipes from the most recent cookbook “Bluegrass Gatherings: Entertaining Through Kentucky’s Season.” May they perfectly complete your next holiday gathering!

TABLESCAPE TIPS from Butterflies in Motion Hosts

When it comes to beautiful tablescapes, you may never see elegant drama like those on display at Butterflies in Motion, a luncheon event in its second year to raise money for Heuser Hearing & Language Academy (HHLA). Held at the historic Brown Hotel, the unique fundraiser attracts some of the city’s most gracious and creative hosts and hostesses and challenges them to create a movie-themed table while inviting their guests to participate in the theme through their own wardrobe or accessories. HHLA adopted the cinema theme based on its legacy. In 1945, Mrs. Spencer Tracey spoke to the Woman’s Club of Louisville about the challenges of educating her son who was born deaf. Her speech inspired the Woman’s Club, in connection with the Kiwanis Club of Louisville, to found The Louisville Deaf Oral School (now HHLA), which began with three students in the carriage house of the Woman’s Club. The school now serves more than 150 infants, preschoolers and kindergarten children every year. This year’s table hosts delivered captivating visual stories through their cinematic decor. The hours of planning were long, but, much like planning a holiday dinner party, the joy of lunching with family and friends made the efforts worthwhile. We asked some of this year’s table hosts to share the tips that have served them well when entertaining in their own homes. My tips are: Anything with chocolate ends the night on the right note. Be sure to make your guests feel welcome. Fun people are imperative to having a great time. Two guests can be just as fun as 20. Be flexible – starting on time is not the most important thing, but having the best people around you can make any occasion fun. If something goes wrong, don’t panic; your friends understand that you are human. Did I forget that the right cocktail can make all the difference?”

er straps on the napkins for one more layered textured surprise. Even the flowers were layered in tones of neutral, blush pink to salmon. You will find that you don’t need as many flowers when you layer. My entertaining tip is that it is always more of a chore to hand-wash some of Grandmother’s fine china that folks are reticent to use, so I use those plates like chargers and then serve the dishwasher-safe plates with food on top of the fine china. If you weren’t lucky enough to inherit some of those beautiful old place settings, you can find them inexpensively at many antique malls and yard sales. Find some that are ornate and do a simple white or ivory plate on top.” —Loren Hebel-Osborne

“I like to keep my parties simple and fun with good-tasting food. Most of the time, I’ll use a caterer or pick up convenient items from my favorite spots that are tasty and liked by most guests. I love to set out hors d’oeuvres, a good cheese tray with cheeses from the deli selection of Kroger, Trader Joe’s or The Cheddar Box. O C T O B E R 2 7 , 2 0 1 6 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

“To create some depth to the table, I like to layer the decor, and I definitely do not worry about everything matching. In fact, I intentionally mix in different textures and color tones so that your eye scans various layers. Layers work on your sense of touch too. In this table, I used both silk and lace and the base cloths. Both evoke elegance and some softness against the metals of bronze, gold and silver. I added leath-

well into the movie-themed table. When entertaining at home, I select the china, glassware and decor before I plan the menu and the guest list. I like selecting invitations that fit with the theme of the party. I love using items on the table that are unusual or unexpected. It makes for a fun party.”

“Alice in Wonderland” Hosted by Duncan Galloway Egan and Greenwald PLLC, Designed by Deborah Greenwald, Kristie Hicks Crenshaw and Kassi Cawood

“We chose Harry Potter as our table theme with the idea of capturing the magical floating candle scene in the Great Hall. Once we settled on it, our team kept coming up with more and more creative Harry Potter elements to add to the overall presentation. Theme parties are my favorite – it allows me to be creative with ideas that I might not have thought to incorporate otherwise. Even when a holiday, such as Christmas, is a theme in itself, I like to be even more specific and instead host a ‘White Christmas,’ ‘Grinch’ or ‘Winter Wonderland’ party. I think invitations, food, decor and activities are all opportunities to work in more fun ideas to enhance the theme.”

“Dont be afraid to ask for help. Let’s be honest: I am still waiting on my creative gene to kick in, but I am blessed with some very gifted friends. For the Butterflies in Motion event, I had a general vision, but Kristie and Kassi brought it to life. Start early – because I didn’t wait until the last minute, I had time to shop locally (I prefer to see things in person before I buy) and to have things shipped that I couldn’t find around town. For one item that I didn’t want to purchase, I put out a ‘does-anyone-want-to-loan-me’ call on Facebook (thanks for the hookah, Vian). Serve champagne – it INSTANTLY makes the evening feel like a special occasion and will cover a multitude of mistakes. Entertain with people you love. Most of my entertaining is done on a larger scale for the nonprofits where I volunteer, but when I entertain at home, I prefer to include people whom I love and that love me in return. We are all so very busy that if I’m taking time to have a special night, it needs to be with special people. Plus, they will forgive my mistakes, like the time I thought that if the refrigerator would crisp up the lettuce, the freezer would crisp it faster.  Um, not true.”

Spooking up the Screen

T

o spare you a list of obscurities, it occurs to me that there are a lot of great movies for Halloween viewing, which are rather accessible but most people just haven’t gotten around to seeing. Here are nine recommendations to spook up your screen this season.

ATTACK THE BLOCK (2011) This English film has equal doses of scary and funny as it follows a London gang of delinquents led by a teen played by John Boyega (“Star Wars: The Film Force Awakens”) who realize that their high-rise apartment complex BENNETT is being swarmed by man-eating DUCKWORTH alien beasts. Its all-in-one-night bennettduckworth.blogspot.com structure is reminiscent of early John Carpenter films.

IT FOLLOWS (2014)

THE MIST (2007)

This recent horror-thriller about a sexually transmitted demon found a decent theatrical reception, but I suspect that many folks who can appreciate psychological horror films may have avoided this one due to its marketing giving it the appearance of a standard-issue torture-porn/jump-scare flick. This is a movie that builds a very original atmosphere of dread without utilizing cheap tactics.

Before Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption”) would bring “The Walking Dead” to television, he made his third Stephen King adaptation. As a small town fills with mist and things resembling the biblical description of the rapture occur, survivors stuck inside a grocery store become slowly divided through the influence of a religious fanatic (Marcia Gay Harden). This movie is masterfully morbid and features an ending that is upsetting but possibly brilliant. It is best when viewed in its blackand-white version, if available.

ZODIAC (2007) David Fincher’s journalist/police procedural starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. retells the happenings surrounding the unsolved Zodiac Killer case, which shook-up northern California in the late-’60s and early ’70s. While the film is nothing supernatural, Fincher’s astounding period atmosphere and dreary visuals make the experience a nerve-racking epic of obsession.

JACOB’S LADDER (1990) Vietnam veteran Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) is seeing demons while working as a mailman in New York City. What seems at first to be the results of PTSD begins to develop into something more intense and terrifying than anything he can imagine. The film is brilliantly directed by Adrian Lyne (“Fatal Attraction”). LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS (DIRECTOR’S CUT) (1986) Inspired by a low-budget Roger Corman film about a man-eating plant, “Little Shop of Horrors” took on a life as an off-Broadway darkly comedic musical before it was brought back to cinematic form through muppeteer/filmmaker Frank Oz. When I saw the movie as a kid, I found it amusing but it didn’t stick with me. What a revelation it was to discover that footage of the original, more sinister ending still exists and is now available for viewing. With its overthe-top apocalyptic finale restored, the movie is now among my Halloween favorites. THE BROOD (1979) Director David Cronenberg has a legacy of uncomfortably provocative films, many of them in the horror genre. This nightmarish tale follows a divorced father (Art Hindle) trying to protect his daughter from an ex-wife whose sessions with an experimental therapist (Oliver Reed) may be manifesting a very threatening force. The movie is absurd but unforgettably nasty for a little low-budget Canadian film made in the late ’70s. INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1978) This story of the human race being invisibly replaced by alien copies has been remade several times over, but I think the second go-round by Philip Kaufman (“The Right Stuff ”) starring Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Leonard Nimoy, Veronica Cartwright and Jeff Goldblum is among the creepiest films I’ve ever seen. THE INNOCENTS (1961) This Gothic haunted mansion film set during the Victorian era is gorgeously captured in black-and-white with clever widescreen composition. Based on Henry James’ “The Turn of the Screw,” it follows a governess (Deborah Kerr) hired to look after two peculiar orphaned siblings who may be under the influence of a wicked presence on the estate of their absent uncle.

“Assassins,” a Tony Award-winning musical by lyricist Stephen Sondheim and author John Weidman, runs October 27 through November 13 at the Jewish Community Center. The one-act historical “revusical” is about the lives of nine people who assassinated or tried to assassinate the president of the United States. The writers bend the rules of time and space, taking the audience on a nightmarish roller coaster ride as the different individuals from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream. With the current presidential election season, “Assassins” is more topical than ever. “‘Assassins’ seems to be more relevant now than when it was written in 1990,” says John Lef-

“Aren’t these the same issues facing our divided country today?” Leffert poses. “Each [assassin] believed that killing the president was going to save the country. John Wilkes Booth was avenging the South, so he believed that he was doing the most American, the most patriotic thing he could do. It doesn’t glamorize or make them heroes by any means, but it does make you perhaps look at their perspective, whatever that is.” When he chose the piece a year ago, Leffert had no idea where the presidential election would be today, just two weeks before we choose our next

president. But now the show is extra relevant. “When they don’t achieve that happiness, all these assassins have to blame someone. Typically, it was the president that took the blame for that,” Leffert says. “If something’s going on wrong in our lives, who are we going to blame? The president. We are quick to blame someone else instead of taking responsibility for ourselves. It’s not our right to be happy – it’s our right to pursue happiness.” Leffert reminds us that life isn’t always black and white, but that these assassins don’t see any gray area. Despite its name, “Assassins” shouldn’t scare anyone off. There is simulated gun violence in the show, but a dark humor shines through, Leffert assures. The meeting of these assassins takes place in a carnival warehouse, “where old carnival games go to die,” he describes. Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald, President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, bookend the play and are essentially the headliners of the group. Even more topical, President Ronald Reagan’s would-be assassin John Hinckley Jr. was recently released from psychiatric care, and Lynnette “Squeaky” Fromme, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford, was released in 2009. The two sing a duet in the show, “Unworthy of Your Love,” that is directed at Jodie Foster on Hinckley’s end and Charles Manson on Fromme’s. A strong ensemble cast includes returning CenterStage stars, such as Jordan Price as John Wilkes Booth, Jennifer Poliskie as Sarah Jane Moore, Lauren McCombs as Squeaky Fromme, Andrew Newton as Lee Harvey Oswald and Jason Cooper as Samuel Byck. CenterStage has proven its ability to take a volunteer cast and turn it into a Broadway-quality performance. The company makes dazzling sets and uses live orchestra musicians to draw the audience deep into the world of its show. Leffert wants to remind theatergoers that the show is a political satire: “You will laugh, but you will think, too.” VT

T H U R S DAY, O C TO B E R 2 7 “ASSASSINS” PRESENTED BY CENTERSTAGE What do John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald and John Hinckley have in common? They are not only three of the nine men and women who throughout history have killed – or attempted to kill – a United States President but also the unlikely subjects Stephen Sondheim brings together in his Tony Award-winning musical, “Assassins.” Combining a musical revue and a murderous carnival game with a careful exploration of patriotism, Sondheim creates the perfect political satire. With wit, comedy and brilliant insight, “Assassins” delves into what motivated these complicated, notorious men and women and ultimately asks you what it means to be an American. The show runs through November 13 at the Jewish Community Center. Tickets are $20.

DEAR ABBY

Man’s House Isn’t Big Enough For Wife’s Many Grandchildren

D

EAR ABBY: I have been with my wife for 16 years. She has a grown daughter who’s the mother of eight kids, but she only has five with her at this time.

•••

Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: At holiday time, my husband’s family takes a photo of all the brothers and sisters and insists that the spouses not be included in the photo. The first time it happened, I thought it was rude, but after 40 years, I have gotten used to it. However, my daughter-in-law, who is new to the family, was hurt by it. Am I wrong in thinking this is rude? – IN OR OUT OF THE PIC-

JEANNE My problem is, the daughter got evicted, and all of a sudden she PHILLIPS brought her belongings to the house. She didn’t ask or anything; she just showed up TURE with the five kids and they are driving me up the DEAR IN OR OUT: I don’t think wall. I already have two adolescent kids, so seven you’re wrong. When people are excluded, they ain’t heaven. don’t feel accepted as part of the family – I have tried to talk with my wife, but she and they’re right. Are more photos taken that doesn’t listen. I’m fed up, Abby, and I’m lookinclude all family members including husbands, ing for other accommodations. They have been wives and children? And if not, why would the here for two weeks and – by the way – my sons spouses tolerate it for 40 years without speaking are now in school while her five are running up? wild in the house. Am I wrong for leaving? – ••• NEEDS MY OWN SPACE DEAR NEEDS: Not in my book. Your mistake was in letting your wife’s daughter’s eviction become your problem. I don’t know whose name is on the lease or title to your place, but it’s time to discuss this with an attorney. If you don’t, you may have more trouble getting the woman and her brood out of there in the future. ••• DEAR ABBY: My friend whom I have known since we were 8-year-olds (we’re now in our 50s) is driving me bonkers. She has started drinking a lot and hanging out with younger people and dating younger guys. I have loaned her quite a bit of money because she can barely get by. I don’t drink, and I hate seeing what she’s doing to herself. I think she is having trouble with the aging process. She has now started to embarrass me when she drinks in public. She doesn’t handle it well and relies on me to get her out of sticky situations. I’m really tired of all this. I have told her how I feel, but she knows I’ll come to her rescue. – TIRED GUARDIAN ANGEL DEAR TIRED: Draw the line. Tell her you are her friend, but not her chaperone, and you will socialize with her only if she limits her intake to nonalcoholic beverages. One of the signs of alcoholism is when the drinking interferes with the drinker’s relationships – and clearly, this is what’s happening. Do not allow her to continue making her drinking your problem because you cannot control it. Only she can do that.

DEAR ABBY: I’m 18 and a freshman in college. My 16-year-old brother is supposed to be a junior in high school, but he’s still taking freshman classes. He has gone to school maybe twice this year. He just gave up and dropped out. All he does is stay home, sleep and text all day. It makes me angry because I don’t work right now, but I clean, cook, do laundry and take care of my younger siblings while he does absolutely nothing. Mom has given up on him. She begs him to go to school and get an education, but he yells at her and tells her he doesn’t care and he’ll just become a hobo. I don’t know what to say to him to get it through his head that he needs to finish high school. What would you do? – BIG SISTER IN NEW YORK DEAR BIG SISTER: If your brother is a junior and still taking freshman classes, he belongs back in school. He may be lazy, but he may also have learning disabilities. If he doesn’t get the help he needs to earn a diploma, he’ll be virtually unemployable by the time he’s 18. Your mother should visit his school and talk to his teachers and the principal about this. As it stands, your brother may be considered “truant,” which is against the law. ••• DEAR ABBY: I am 47 years old and date younger, usually very attractive women. I live in New York City, so they tend to be models. I haven’t been married because I feel like I hav-

68

en’t met “the one.” I have been with one or two women who could have been the one, only to find out my feelings weren’t reciprocated. But more often I don’t feel an emotional/intellectual connection, so I end the relationship. While I might be able to resolve that issue by dating women in their late 30s and 40s, I’m more physically attracted to younger women. Because I don’t look my age, I have yet to reach the point where I look “too old” for women in their 20s to be attracted. Do I continue to follow my male instincts and date younger women, or should I date women closer to my age to whom I may not be as physically attracted, knowing there’s still no guarantee I’ll meet someone with whom I’ll find a stronger connection? – LIKES ’EM YOUNGER DEAR LIKES: Forgive me for answering your question with a question, but what do you really want in a relationship? The problem with youth is that it doesn’t last. As the years go by, we get older – if we’re lucky. That’s why it’s time to start listing your priorities, with the help of a licensed mental health professional, if necessary. (There are many well-qualified ones in your city.) I urge you to do it soon, before you start looking like your date’s rich uncle. While marriage may not be for everyone, it’s a known fact that married men live longer. ••• DEAR ABBY: I am the luncheon chairperson for a large fundraiser that will be held in six weeks. I know my question is one shared by many. How can a brilliant person be advised to keep his remarks short and not like he’s preaching to the choir without seeming rude? – DOESN’T WANT TO OFFEND DEAR DOESN’T WANT TO OFFEND: Here’s how. Run your event like a commanding general. Tell all your speechmakers and honorees how much time they are ALLOTTED. Insist they submit their remarks in enough time before the event that you can review the length – and keep “reminding” the speakers what time the event MUST end. If you bravely and diligently do this, your event will be a hit. And YOU will be regarded as brilliant because not many people are courageous enough to be this assertive.

PUZZLES

pets of the week Meet Russell, a cute 5-year-old Shetland sheepdog mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner could no longer care for him. This furry boy loves to get his head rubbed and will even do a little dance when you scratch at the base of his tail! Russell enjoys going on walks but is also content to just lay by your side and watch TV. He loves his people so much, he would rather not share them with other dogs or young children. Russell misses having a family and hopes he will get one soon. He is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccinations. Come see him at our adoption center in the Pewee Valley Feeders Supply, 12406 La Grange Road. Largo is a 1-year-old tortoiseshell kitty who was rescued from cruelty and neglect by Animal Rescue Corps during their “Operation Dog Days of Summer.” When she was found, she was riddled with intestinal parasites and was very underweight. Since being rescued, she has received medical treatment and is gaining weight. But what she really wants is a loving home of her own – something she has never had before. Can you help Largo forget about her sad past and teach her that people can be kind and good? Largo is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. You can meet Largo at our Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive.
