As we get older, we start to value the experience of the holidays more than gifts. Though I haven’t reached a level of enlightenment that makes me opposed to the occasional pretty, shiny and perfectly wrapped commodity under the tree, my focus has shifted to creating memories this month rather than curating a wish list. This week’s feature encourages cultivating experiences as gifts, and luckily, there are no shortage of options for exciting and entertaining experience packages within our own city. Consider memberships to Louisville Zoo or Kentucky Science Center for children so you may set aside educational time together in the upcoming year. Give the gift of history and culture to your family with memberships to the Speed Art Museum, KMAC or Frazier History Museum. Adopt a favorite nonprofit for the upcoming year and engage your friends to commit to a year of service together instead of a gift exchange. Season tickets to one of the multitude of performing arts organizations in Louisville takes care of scheduling date nights for you throughout the year. There is no shortage of gifts that keep giving but that also give back to our community in the process. These experiences can’t be merely tossed aside in a month or upgraded for the latest tech trend. One of my favorite holiday memories as a child was loading Tonya Abeln up the car with my family to drive around and look at Christmas lights. There was one house that was always the pinnacle of the drive. One had to walk around the property to fully enjoy it all, and this was encouraged as you would be greeted by a most convincing Santa and Mrs. Claus. I still remember every detail of those decorations and it occurred to me that the tradition of decorating one’s home for the holidays is, in some ways, a gift to those who take the time to enjoy it. In an ever-changing and sometimes frightening world, I know I can rely on the consistency of their traditions. When I see the oversized gingerbread family go up in someone’s front yard on Lexington Road that I don’t even know or see every candle in every window of the house at the corner of my neighborhood, it gives me comfort and it gives me joy. I hope you, too, find comfort in the small traditions and experiences of this holiday season.

ecent studies have shown that people are happiest when they spend money on experiences, not on material things.

This beautiful home had many important visitors in its day, such as Presidents James Monroe, Andrew Jackson and explorers Lewis and Clark. The cost is $9 for adults, but they have many free days throughout the year and large book sales, which are open to the public.

EVAN WILLIAMS BOURBON EXPERIENCE The Evan Williams Experience, located downtown on Main Street, is the first official stop in Louisville on the prestigious Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The beautiful sets and attention to detail makes this an immersive experience, really transporting guests to the golden age of distilling (1783 to be exact).

business briefs UOFL BUSINESS RESEARCHERS SHOW PASSION AND PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS OFTEN CONFUSED Entrepreneurs are, by their nature, self-starters who are passionate about their work. But how often are good public speaking skills confused with passion, leading to bad investment decisions? That’s the question a group of University of Louisville College of Business researchers explored in a study published online recently in the journal “IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication.” The researchers surveyed 40 student entrepreneurs about their passion for entrepreneurship. Then they recorded the entrepreneurs’ business pitches and showed the videos to investors. They asked the investors to rank and rate their perceptions of each of the entrepreneurs’ passion, and to discuss their reasoning. The researchers then conducted statistical analyses to assess whether the investors’ perceptions of passion aligned with the entrepreneurs’ reports of personal passion. What they found was that investors did not do a very good job differentiating between the most and least passionate entrepreneurs. But that problem could be attributed to the entrepreneurs themselves. When entrepreneurs had weak presentation skills, it caused investors to underestimate passion. But when they had strong skills, it led investors to overestimate passion. For investors, that means “buyer beware,” as a good presenter may not have the follow-through it takes to keep a business going after a setback. “ … Investors may miss investment opportunities with passionate entrepreneurs who are simply struggling with presentation skills, or make less than optimal investments in entrepreneurs who are projecting a passionate image but do not have the ‘fire in the belly’ to back up their message,” the researchers concluded. LIBA LAUNCHES HOLOUDAYS CONTEST TO WIN $1,000 SHOPPING SPREE The Louisville Independent Business Alliance (LIBA), an alliance of over 870 locally owned and independent businesses, officially launched its ninth annual Buy Local, Win $1,000: hoLOUdays Contest on Small Business Saturday. The purpose of the contest is to encourage shoppers to choose local and independent businesses for their holiday purchases because making a shift to local independents is one of the fastest ways to build a strong local economy and create jobs in our community. So, while buying gifts for loved ones this season, Louisvillians can also give a gift to their community. To enter the contest, shoppers will collect receipts from LIBA member businesses until January 3, 2017, and then present the receipts for review at one of the sponsor sites (Heine Brothers’ Coffee or Feeders Supply locations) or submit via mail/online/ email/text. Each receipt counts as one entry. The winner will receive $1,000 to spend at LIBA member businesses of their choice. Another way to enter the contest is to purchase LIBA’s new eGift Card, good at over 50 LIBA member businesses. LIBA’s eGift Cards are available for purchase online at DANI BUSBOOM KELLY NAMED UOFL VOLLEYBALL COACH Dani Busboom Kelly, a former University of Louisville assistant coach who won national titles as a player and assistant coach at Nebraska, has been named as the Cardinals’ head volleyball coach. UofL Vice President and Director of Athletics made the announcement on Sunday. “We are thrilled to have Dani guiding our volleyball program,” said Jurich. “I was so impressed with her in the one year that she was here on [former UofL coach] Anne Kordes’ staff and I have followed her career closely since then. [Nebraska head coach] John Cook is someone who I really respect and tried to hire while I was at Colorado State. He and many others have provided rave reviews about Dani and I am confident she will be successful here. Everyone I spoke with around the nation has told me she is

among the very best in the nation as a recruiter. We will aid her in assembling a terrific staff around her and provide the support she needs for us to succeed on a national stage.” Since her arrival at Nebraska in 2012, over the last five seasons the Huskers have achieved a combined 134-30 record, reached four NCAA Regional finals and won the 2015 NCAA National Championship at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, the same facility where she won the national title as a player for the Huskers in 2006. COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS ANNOUNCES PLANS TO END YOUNG ADULT HOMELESSNESS IN LOUISVILLE, ASSEMBLES YOUTH ADVISORY BOARD TO HELP The fastest rising group of the homeless population, both locally and nationwide, are young adults age 18-24. In 2015, there were 418 homeless young adults in Louisville, plus an additional 450 youth below age 18 served by YMCA Safe Place Services of Louisville, for a total of 868 unduplicated unaccompanied homeless youth. The Coalition for the Homeless and the recently created Homeless Youth Committee, which is made up of 38 local providers, community leaders and government members, are announcing their goal beginning in 2017 will be to end young adult homelessness in Louisville by 2020. The Committee’s work to create and implement a plan to tackle this challenge began with assembling a Youth Advisory Board who are all 24 years or younger, and who have been homeless at some point during their lives. The Youth Advisory Board will help the committee understand the barriers to success and review and make recommendations on every aspect of the plan. Members of the Youth Advisory Board were publicly recognized at the UofL vs. UK football game at the Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Saturday, November 26 where they delivered the game ball. Duties of the Homeless Youth Committee also include collecting and creating data on homeless youth, mapping the existing service system, identifying and prioritizing gaps in resources, identifying best practices and appropriate models for the community, prioritizing projects for funding, measuring the success of various housing models and coordinating services to ensure that all youth on the community by-name list are served and that the list is updated monthly to measure progress. The details and strategies of the plan will be announced at a press event in early January followed by a public awareness campaign.

FOREST HILLS COMMONS EARNS DEFICIENCY-FREE SCORE FROM KENTUCKY OFFICE OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL Forest Hills Commons was found to have no deficiencies during an inspection by the Kentucky Office of the Inspector General. Opened by American Senior Communities on July 5, 2016, at 9107 Taylorsville Road in Louisville, Forest Hills Commons’ perfect score was earned during the community’s initial survey. The OIG inspects licensed health care facilities to assess compliance with state standards of care, such as adequacy of staffing, quality of care and cleanliness of facilities. A deficiency-free score is the best score a personal care facility can receive and is a distinction achieved by a low percentage of facilities in the state. “We are so proud of the staff for living out these values in an exceptional way. We congratulate the staff at Forest Hills Commons for their perfect survey from the Office of the Inspector General. Without the staff’s high level of dedication and commitment, a deficiency-free survey would not be possible,” said General Manager Miles Burkholder. NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED BURGER RESTAURANT BRINGS FIRST FRANCHISE IN U.S. TO LOUISVILLE Fast casual gourmet burger concept Freakin’ Unbelievable Burgers has signed its first franchise agreement with a husband and wife team from Louisville. The franchise location opened inside Mall St. Matthews on Monday, November 21. Brittney and Marcus Howard were named the first “Freakin’ Franchisees” after learning about Freakin’ in their former home of Flint, Michigan, where they both worked in the automotive industry. After moving to Louisville two years ago, the couple immediately began working to bring the growing burger restaurant to the bluegrass. “We knew this was something special and we didn’t want to miss the chance to be among the first franchisees in the country,” said Brittney Howard. “We’re very excited about this opportunity for the Howards,” said company president and founder Brent Skaggs, a former Lexington native. “Going from a customer at our first location to becoming a franchisee for the brand just a few years later, we couldn’t have asked for a better team to bring our burgers to Louisville.”


The first location opened in 2012 in Flint and immediately garnered national attention, including a No. 12 ranking on Fast Casual’s 2013 list of the “Top 100 Movers & Shakers” nationwide. Freakin’ was also named one of the “14 Burger Concepts to Watch in 2014” by

With close to 600,000 Kentuckians affected by diabetes and more than 1.1 million at risk, the American Diabetes Association and statewide sponsor Passport Health Plan have taken the opportunity to partner with Kentucky food banks to educate shoppers about diabetes.


November is American Diabetes Month, and the Association is collaborating with food banks across the state of Kentucky to educate their shoppers about diabetes including the risks, prevention and healthier eating. This collaboration would not be possible without the help of the Association’s Kentucky statewide sponsor, Passport Health Plan. “At Passport Health Plan, it is our goal to help all Kentuckians live healthier lives, which is why we are so proud to be working together with the American Diabetes Association and food banks all around the Commonwealth to help educate residents about healthy eating,” said Passport Health Educator Lisa Bellafato. “With so many Kentuckians being diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes – or being at high risk of being diagnosed – it’s very important that we help teach our friends and neighbors about the importance of healthy eating to help them improve their health and keep diabetes at bay.” The American Diabetes Association is excited about this new opportunity to reach and educate people about diabetes. Working with the food bank system in Kentucky is a natural fit because they serve thousands of Kentucky residents, many of whom may not otherwise have access to the information.

Christmas at the Galt House Hotel broke the Guinness World Record for the Largest Gathering of Fairies on Saturday, November 19 at 11:36 a.m. with 936 fairies. Members of the community and local Girl Scout troops came out to the Galt House Hotel’s Grand Ballroom to break the world record. “I had so much fun being a part of the Christmas at the Galt House Hotel’s record setting largest gathering of fairies,” said Brad Good, CPA. “It was a privilege for me to serve as an official witness. Christmas at the Galt House Hotel and this event is truly a memorable experience.” In order to break the record, fairies had to be dressed in a tutu with a wand and wings. If participants did not have a full costume, the Christmas at the Galt House Hotel’s Snow Fairy Princess lent items from her personal collection. “Christmas at the Galt House Hotel is designed to create lasting and magical holiday memories. What better way to showcase to the world that Louisville is the best Christmas town in the United States,” said Nick Briner, general manager of the Galt House Hotel.

As is likely the case for the majority of you reading this, Louisville’s 2010 loss to Kentucky on the gridiron feels like it was from a different lifetime. A relic from a state of mind where none of us knew if Charlie Strong was going to have success with the Cardinals, that it was even possible that Bobby Petrino could come back, or that the basketball team was just two and a half years away from winning its third national title. As much as I’d like to attribute the pain from last Saturday’s 41-38 loss in the annual Governor’s Cup game to merely being out of practice when it comes to accepting defeat, the actual reason, at least in my eyes, is because it ushers in an extremely difficult reality to face.

ball Playoff or not, this was supposed to be the lasting legacy of the 2016 season – the year the Cardinals took a massive step forward on their journey toward being a perennial powerhouse and provided Louisville fans with three months of unprecedented fun and positivity. Now, unfortunately, that won’t be the case.

When Austin MacGinnis’ 47-yard field goal sailed through the uprights on the closed end of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, it cemented an entirely different legacy for the 2016 Cardinals. We would all share memories of the good times, sure, but in the next breath we’d be forced to ask how it all went so wrong. How could a Louisville team with everything in the world to play for be so throughly manhandled by a Houston squad that ultimately lost three games in the American Athletic Conference? How could the same group of players who ran roughshod over a very


good Florida State team not give a more inspired effort against an improved, but certainly not great Kentucky team when the legacy of their season (and a potential Orange Bowl berth) hung in the balance? I don’t know the answers to these questions anymore than I know how Louisville’s bowl future is going to play out. All I know is that having to address this unpleasant caveat any time we want to reminisce about the good times – like the school’s first Heisman Trophy winner in a couple of weeks – is going to be agonizing, and that’s why this particular loss to Kentucky is an even more difficult pill to swallow than it would be ordinarily. If there is one positive to take out of the pain, I think it’s this: Perhaps last Saturday’s game will serve as a springboard to bigger and better things for the Governor’s Cup rivalry. The game is staying on rivalry weekend, which means Louisville-Kentucky is going to have to continue to compete for eyes with the likes of Michigan-Ohio State, Florida State-Florida and Clemson-South Carolina. That being the case, it would behoove both programs if their arch-rival were to have attained a certain degree of national respect. As much fun as it’s been to point and laugh at Kentucky football for the better part of all our lives (regardless of what our age is), there’s little doubt that from a purely rational perspective, Louisville would be bestserved by the Wildcats morphing into an SEC contender. Of course, this still doesn’t feel like the time for rational perspective. There’s still too much pain and too many unanswered questions. VT PHOTO BY ADAM CREECH

UofL vs. UK UK quarterback Stephen Johnson was the star of the show on Saturday against the No. 11 Cards. Johnson completed 16 of 27 passes for 338 yards and a total of three touchdowns. All of this came to a shock for fans of Heisman favorite Lamar Jackson, who threw three interceptions against the Cats. Kentucky’s junior kicker Austin MacGinnis kicked a 47-yard field goal with 12 seconds remaining for a 41-38 win.

Blue, Period


ost agreed it was a huge improbability for Kentucky to win this game, a 25-point underdog going up against one of the country’s best teams, on the road. But for the Wildcats to have a chance, here’s what would have to happen:

than we do.

• And absolutely don’t try to pass the ball. Louisville has a good pass defense and Kentucky’s passing game is a mess, a season-long smorgasbord of hurried throws and dropped balls. If Kentucky tries to throw the ball against the Cardinals, forget about it. • And if all those pieces fall precisely into place and Kentucky doesn’t commit the wrong penalties at the wrong time and doesn’t turn the ball over and if the emotions of a rivalry game create enough of an anything-can-happen environment, there might be a glimmer of a chance – at least to keep it close and avoid embarrassment. But, mostly, forget about it. I don’t know where the accolades ought to rest following Saturday’s improbable 41-38 win. My first choice is Stephen Johnson, who suddenly became a Division I SEC college quarterback. He more than managed the game, more than handed off to Bennie, Boom and Jojo, and got out of the way. He kept bringing the offense back together after every Louisville score, stepped up and threw with confidence and ran the ball confidently too. My second “player of the game” is Eddie Gran, who came in knowing that Louisville would be overplaying the Kentucky run and called some daring upfield passes. And then, when the running game just never got going, he kept mixing up the offense, letting Johnson throw the ball. Even though some of Gran’s play-calling had someone in my house screaming at the television, he ultimately reinforced what I feel deep-down is the essence of the coach-fan relationship: They know more

TVT.indd 20

But Jackson did fumble.

And I don’t want to ignore Ryan Timmons, forgotten man of the Kentucky offense, who played an outstanding game at the end of his senior season. Finally, respect to Mark Stoops, whose fourth Kentucky team was in shambles, not just 0-2 but 0-and-humiliating. He did whatever it is coaches do and say on the practice field, on the sidelines, in the locker room, and he gave the defense pride and the offense cohesiveness.

Oops. Did I say season-ending? Sorry, just reflex. This year, the season doesn’t end with the Louisville game. The season doesn’t end with Stoops congratulating Petrino at midfield. The season doesn’t end with Kentucky’s players wishing they could have done a better job for the seniors.


If the game turned into a high-scoring shootout, forget about it.

been a successful afternoon for Stoops’ Troops. Keeping it close, matching the high-powered Cardinals score for score, filling the afternoon sky with their own big-yardage passing attack. And so now on to wherever the bowl gods send them. And here again, this win was so important. Kentucky went from a 6-6 team just squeaking into eligibility to a 7-5 team and winner of seven of its last 10, five of seven, including a season-ending win over a near-BCS-level opponent.


• The Cats would have to control the game on the ground, going to its three-headed monster to chew up the turf and chew up the clock, keep the ball out of Lamar Jackson’s hands and score just enough to somehow prevail in a low-scoring game.

D E C E M B E R 1 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

Of course, Austin MacGinnis, who has become the reliable X-factor of this offense all season, calmly sliced the uprights for yet another of his most important kicks of the season.

He also gave the defense Jordan Jones and the offense Bennie Snell. I don’t know of any observers who’ll truly say that on September 1, they knew those two individuals were the keys to Kentucky’s finally-at-last winning season.

It ends with a game in late December. What a win! VT

The margin for error was so slender Saturday that every time Kentucky failed to capitalize on a situation and put the ball back into Jackson’s hands, I said to myself, “Well, this is it. Nice try, good effort, just not enough.” But this team kept pulling a surprise out of its gym bag, better than a “nice try,” stronger than a “good effort” and, at the end of the game, more than “enough.” You know, even if Jackson had not fumbled – if it were the front of his hand and not the back, or whatever that incomprehensible rule says, yet another of football’s impossibly fussy and convoluted regulations – and if Louisville had won the game, it would have

A Wondrous Wildcat Win In the biggest upset in the series, Kentucky, a 25-plus point underdog, upset No. 11 Louisville 41-38 on Saturday at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Austin MacGinnis provided the winning points with a 47-yard field with just 12 seconds left. That drive was set up by a Lamar Jackson fumble, recovered by the Cats’ Courtney Love. It was the first win for UK over UofL since 2010 and the first in the series for Cats Head Coach Mark Stoops. Kentucky finishes the regular season 7-5 after an 0-2 start. Louisville finishes 9-3, and both teams will find out their bowl destinations on Sunday, December 4. Here are some post game comments from Stoops, UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart, MacGinnis and Love. What were your emotions as you watched the winning field goal? Mark Stoops: I had great confidence in him, but honestly I was a little numb. Just wanted to finish it off too. You knew you were going to have to go back out – whether he missed it, we were going to have to go play with a dynamic guy like that. We were thinking about the kickoff and what we were going to do and the seconds. There was a lot going through my mind.

and when it was going up and he had his hands up, I said, “All right, it’s good.” I knew he had plenty of leg. My second glance was to the clock to see how much time was left and what we needed to do to take care of the ball.

Taylor’s 10 KENT TAYLOR

What does a bowl trip mean to a university?

Barnhart: I don’t know that there is any way to quantify it other than WAVE3 Sports to say it’s something that I’m really happy about. We have 15 seniors that get a chance to go play again. For us, it’s been a How confident were you going into the little bit of a grind to get back here and just so game that you could make big plays in the proud of those seniors, guys that have just hung passing game, from the opening play? in there and kept fighting. To see the joy on their Stoops: I told the players this morning and we faces is really, really cool. were talking about it all week. We always talk the same things, the energy in our preparation and focus, but the last piece was that we had to play aggressive and our guys, you know as you’re getting over that hump and trying to get over that hump, getting in big environments like this, making plays against a quality team. We talked about being aggressive, we always do that, but we just have to make big plays in big moments. What does it mean to end the regular season with a win like this after the way the season started? Mitch Barnhart: We’re 7-3 over our last 10 games, and I know it didn’t start the way we wanted it to but the resiliency of what this coaching staff and these kids have shown is truly remarkable. It’s led by a pretty steady guy at quarterback. He’s just unflappable. He doesn’t get all the hype that a lot of players get and he doesn’t look for it – frankly he doesn’t want it. He’s just a really, really humble, quiet young man. He’s got a couple of great running backs back there and our guys just stayed focused for 10 games. To get one here in Louisville, to get the Governor’s Cup is another step for us. Take me through your emotions as you’re watching the winning field goal. Barnhart: Austin delivered one before from 51 and you know, I thought, “Well, okay, he can kick it that far,” and when he kicked it, I watched him. I don’t watch anybody else – I watched Austin, PHOTO BY VICTORIA GRAFF

TVT.indd 21

What is going through your mind as you are watching the final drive? MacGinnis: As soon as Louisville fumbled, I had no doubt in my mind that we were going to get in field goal range. I just stayed focused, stayed to my routine and just trusted those guys. That offense has been great all year. Stephen doesn’t get enough love – he’s just a consistent player who you can trust. I knew they were going to get me in field goal range.

to get two in one year and one versus Louisville, just God is great. That’s all you can say. Trust and have faith in God, no matter what you’re going through. What did you see on the fumble recovery? Courtney Love: It was just an unbelievable play by Lamar. It was tough getting him on the ground. He made a lot of unbelievable plays. He’s a great player. I voted for him for the Heisman Trophy, but recovering that ball just shows all the hard work that we do as a team. To end up like that is just a blessing. What were you thinking as Austin lined up for that final field goal? Love: Sometimes I don’t like to look, but I looked at this one and I saw it go in. It was just awesome. I’m just so proud of my team and to bring that trophy back to Lexington. Do you have a sense for what this means for Coach Stoops? Love: Absolutely. It’s a big win. This is the state of Kentucky and it’s two teams battling. They were a nationally ranked opponent and they’re our rival. It was just huge for us to get this win and to go into this bowl season with momentum. It changes this program. VT

Then when you go out there, how quickly do you know it’s good? MacGinnis: As soon as I look up off my foot, I can tell from the ball flight and how I hit it. I saw it and it was going right through the middle, I knew it was good. It felt like so surreal, like I had put in so much to get here. I’ve been really focused this season because I came off an injury last season, so

Well, Butler High School girls’ basketball team, being in the same company as the Lynx, haven’t been shy about flirting with the idea of a dynasty in their locker room. In fact, it may be something they embrace. “It is something that comes natural,” says senior Tasia Jeffries. “It is hard enough to win one state championship, so when you have the chance to win three out of four years, I feel like that along with the success that we have had, it is natural to talk about a dynasty so to speak because of the success and everything we’ve had.” The defending state champions are on the brink of making history in the state of Kentucky. Coach Larry Just and Butler won the state title in the 2013-14 season and are looking to defend their 2015-16 title this year, which would give them three championships in four years. No surprise, there’s a lot of hype surrounding the Bearettes, and Coach Just knows that things like a preseason No. 21 ranking in America by USA Today High School Sports is something nice and honorable. But the play on the court is what matters at the end of the day. “We think it’s a great honor to have been recognized at the national level at this time. We also recognize a lot of that is based on last year and the summer these kids had,” Just says. “What we have ahead of us is the main thing we have to take care of.

“I think a lot of it was inexperience,” Jeffries adds. “The first time around, a lot of us were freshman and sophomores, so we didn’t really know how to handle it. But now, I feel like we will be able to focus in more. We’ve all grown and we are all real mature now.”

Beyond the championships and being a dynasty in the making, it is the sisterhood that makes this Butler team so special. Their chemistry on the court is a reflection of the time they spend together outside the gym, the life lessons they learn from Coach Just and the key ingredient of having fun, all of which come together to be the recipe for success for this program. So the defending champs will be a tough out this season. I’m no gambler, but I doubt anyone in Vegas would bet against this team. To Coach Just, he wants his team to have a high level of focus as they get ready for another championship campaign. “For us, our whole focus has been trying to get ourselves ready for this year with the kids that we got,” he says. “Just try to take care of ourselves and not worry about what else is out there. Not worrying about the expectations that are out there but taking care of our business and trying to get better.” VT

Leadership will be key, and Jaelynn Penn, who is considered the top candidate for Kentucky’s Miss Basketball Award, will certainly be a go-to leader on the floor in terms of her play. This season, she expects the target on their backs to get bigger night in and night out. “It is something I think most of us embrace as a team,” she says. “Especially since most of us have been through it before, so we kind of have experience and we learned from that experience two years ago. I don’t think it is something that scares us or puts any pressure on us – we just invite the competition.”

An estimated 18,000 fans rolled into Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Friday night to see one of Louisville’s biggest rivalry games, Trinity vs. St. Xavier. With a restored offense, Trinity’s quarterback, Spencer Blackburn was named MVP after rushing 115 yards and completing one touchdown.

leanor Goldberg loves to give parties more than anything else and she is good at it! She and her semi-tolerant husband, Fred, followed up her Halloween extravaganza with a casual Thanksgiving Eve supper party for several dozen of their friends.

Goldbergs on a Roll recognition certificates were awarded to four members. These included the Ambassador’s Award to Terry Collis, a former KSMD Governor, and Special Support Awards to Jan Sheetinger and Carol Vaughn. The National General Society Award Partyline went to historian Anissa Davis, recognized for her extraordinary work CARLA SUE in recruiting new members, presenting genealogy workshops and helpBROECKER ing proposed members in filling out their membership applications.

I sat down next to a charming lady – an outof-town visitor who was visiting her son, attorney Louis Waterman. She said she had gone to Eastern High School and had lived on Westport Road “back in the day.” I can’t always remember what day it is, but I immediately said “pretty white rambling house in the curve, the Blooms lived there 60 years ago.” And I was right! Maybe I won’t have to go to the memory care center at the old folks’ home… yet! H.J. Redmon, Kaye Bowles-Durnell, Kate and Jack Underwood, Sandy Metts and David Snowden, Libby and Don Parkinson, George Stinson, Eric Haner, Janet Falk, Kay Matton and her niece Stacy Otto, Charlie and Carol Hebel and Lori and David Osborne feasted on Philip Koenig and Kathy Hensley’s (Silver Spoon) shepherd’s pie, chicken liver pate, salad and mini-sweets. MAYFLOWER LUNCHEON The Kentucky Society of Mayflower Descendants held their annual fall luncheon meeting at the Pendennis Club earlier this month. KSMD Governor Fay Charpentier-Ford led the meeting, which began with the invocation from Carol Vaughn and the Pledge of Allegiance led by Julia Mitchel. Special

Following lunch, Lee Nelson read the Mayflower Compact and named the 41 adult males who signed it. It is this document that is generally treated as the foundation stone of American democratic governance. Dr. James North, a prominent religion historian, spoke on the Gunpowder Plot of November 5, 1605, also known as Guy Fawkes Day or Gunpowder Treason Day. (The political hoo-hoo that went on in England is mighty like the verbal carrying-on going on following our recent election! Let us hope that our turmoil ends with fireworks, bourbon and branch water!) BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME Eight college basketball greats were selected as the 11th Induction Class for the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame on November 18 in Kansas City. Six of the eight were players. The other two were coaching legends Mike Montgomery and Hugh Durham, who just happens to be a 1955 graduate of Eastern High School in Middletown. During his historic 37-year coaching career, Durham earned enough wins at three Division I schools to finish as the winningest coach in program history. He began his career at his alma mater Florida State, where he led the Seminoles to the 1972 NCAA Championship game and three NCAA Tournaments in his 12 years. He also had a stellar

His other honors included being four-time Southeastern Conference Coach of the year. He coached nine All-Americans and four Academic All-Americans, and he was a member of five halls of fame. Attending the induction ceremony were many people from Kentucky, including David and Pam Ray, Harriet and Wade Wearren, Linda Bunting and Benny and Judy Fryrear.

Making Brows Beautiful

hen I walked into Dollface Brows & Beauty, the first thing I saw was a customer giving owner Jess Harrison a massive hug and thanking her. By the end of my own appointment, I found myself doing exactly the same thing.


I am very fair-skinned and have naturally blonde hair, meaning my eyelashes aren’t particularly dark and my eyebrows are almost nonexistent without a little help. I’ve tried a number of brow pencils and gels, but these products are only temporary and require a lot of time to apply. Harrison completely transformed my light lashes and invisible eyebrows. She waxed and shaped my brows to the perfect shape to fit my face, and tinted them to a nice, ashy blonde. Simultaneously, she colored my lashes, making my eyes look naturally brighter.

hormone-free brow and face products. The line has several tools and powders for brow maintenance, a clear gel to keep those unruly brows in their place and a growth serum that can be used on both lashes and brows. This serum is particularly helpful for those who have over-tweezed their brows, or for aging women whose lashes are slowly thinning.

Dollface is open six days a week, and their hours easily accommodate those who keep busy schedules. Appointments are requested, but walk-ins are accepted. Services start at $46 for a full brow tint and wax, and they also do facial waxing. Though she started in the beauty industry as a freelance makeup artist and not an eyebrow expert, Harrison immediately took to waxing when she went to school to earn her aesthetician license. “I became obsessed with waxing,” reveals

Harrison. “I only ever wanted to do brows even though it wasn’t a conventional career choice.” After earning her license, Harrison worked for five years at the renowned Boom Boom Brow Bar in the West Village of New York City. In the spring of this year, she and her husband decided it was time to leave the chaos of the city and came to Louisville for a change of pace. Harrison continues to do a pop-up shop at a salon in New York once a month and even does brows for Victoria’s Secret corporate headquarters there. Though she sometimes misses New York, Harrison feels very at home in Louisville and is excited to share her skills with the 502. “I was really ready to build my own brand and I like the creative atmosphere here, so Louisville is a good fit,” she says. “I feel like I’ve been really welcomed by everyone in the community so far.” VT Dollface Brows & Beauty is located at 207 S. Shelby St. For more information or to book your own appointment, visit

“Since every person is different, I look at the shape and color of a person’s brows to keep everything clean and natural,” Harrison explains. “I do a tint, fill in and even the brows out. A more natural brow is flattering on everyone, and it’s trending right now.” The entire process took less than an hour, and I left the shop feeling brand new and knowing that I wouldn’t have to color my eyebrows or wear mascara for at least three or four weeks. And Harrison’s methods are not only effective but incredibly gentle. Having someone that close to your eyes can be a little nerve-racking, but she worked with great precision and I never felt remotely nervous. In addition to full service brow and facial waxing, Dollface also has a full range of all-natural, D E C E M B E R 1 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

SPOTLIGHT Louisville Triple Crown of Running Every spring, Louisville athleticism comes alive with the exciting and always anticipated Louisville Triple Crown of Running. Featuring the Anthem 5K, the Rodes City Run 10K and the Papa John’s 10 Miler, the series boasts important athletic events that encourage a healthy lifestyle for all participants. Additionally, proceeds from the events benefit the Crusade for Children. To get more information on the 2017 series, we spoke with Rodes City Run Race Director Fred Teale. What is the Louisville Triple Crown of Running?

Why is the series important for the Louisville community?

The Louisville Triple Crown of Running (LTCOR), presented by Planet Fitness, is a series of well-established road races of varying distances. Runners may participate in any or all three “legs” but must enter and finish all three in the series to be eligible. Finishers of the series will receive a t-shirt (in addition to individual race shirts), and the official winner of the series (first place in each of the three races) will also receive a special award created by Louisville Stoneware. There is no additional entry fee required to participate.

The LTCOR provides the Louisville community with three great events every two weeks in early spring that provide not only a positive opportunity for health and fitness but also a huge economic impact on the city itself. The series provides personal experiences for individuals from running and training and the benefits of making healthy lifestyle choices.

How did the series come to fruition? Gil Clark (Metro Parks Track Club), Bob O’Leary and Wally Deener (both of Rodes) discussed combining three different races of varying distances to form a “Triple Crown” of road racing. Following many meetings with Kentucky Derby Festival CEO Dan Mangeot and Liberty National Bank, the Louisville Triple Crown of Running was born! Held in the spring of 1984, the inaugural races included the Rodes City Run 10K, The Liberty Run For The Arts 15K and the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon. In 2001, the Papa John’s 10 Miler replaced the 15K, bringing a unique racing distance to the series. Looking to get more of the community active, the series was updated in 2004 with the addition of the Anthem 5K. 2017 will be the 34th running of the Louisville Triple Crown, presented by Planet Fitness.

TVT.indd 41

Besides the participants, who benefits from the series? The net proceeds from all three events are donated to the Crusade for Children. Including the 2016 donation of $142,146, the Louisville Triple Crown of Running has contributed over $1.7 million to the Crusade for Children to help improve the lives of special needs children. Why is that your charity of choice? The Crusade for Children is the largest granting organization to agencies serving special needs children in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Additionally, 100 percent of every donation to the Crusade is returned to the community to serve special needs children. How have you seen the races grow over the years? The largest growth has been through


technology! When the series began, the races were hand-timed, then eventually went to a returnable chip that tied to your shoelaces, and now we have disposable bib chips. We also communicate, including results, through email and social media, which didn’t exist back in the day. What changes do you hope to see in the future? The future of the series lies in our youth! That is why we contribute hundreds of free entries for the races to our community youth running programs through the St. Joseph Children’s Home and YMCA’s “Run Louisville Run.” What are all the important registration deadlines participants need to keep in mind? There are too many deadlines for each race to feature, so here is the most important one currently: Save $15 ($5 per race) through December 31. Now, participants can enjoy three great races for the one very low price of $90. On January 1, the fee for the three-race series goes to $105. Also, looking for a meaningful gift for the runner or walker in your life? You may give the gift of the Louisville Triple Crown of Running (all three races) or any individual event in the series, including Kid’s Fun Runs!

Darnell relates. “It’s part of the performing arts. I’m so in tune with the vibe there.” He’s just as excited about the food.

“We did gear the menu toward very quick ticket times, so people can get a quick bite to eat and get into the theater,” he says. “I’m also not a fan of the overly pretentious type of food. I like simple food, clean flavors, and I know you eat with your eyes first, so I want it to look really nice.” Kim Baker, president of The Kentucky Center, affirms that visitors are its top priority: “We hope they will see this as yet another reason to create memorable experiences here. We’ve made every effort to enhance the


visitor experience, and that includes bringing a seasoned chef on board to help create the atmosphere for a wonderful time.” Menu selections include soups, salads, a selection of six small-plate dishes, sides and daily dessert specials. Small-plate dishes include butternut and black bean tostadas with avocado creme, cast iron seared crab cakes with fresh dill and caper aioli, and hamburgers with local beef and Kenny’s Cheddar, caramelized onion and bacon on a pretzel bun. Share warm pimento cheese dip with friends or warm up with a bowl white bean and chicken chili before the show. Locally grown produce will be used when available, depending on the season. “My wife’s sister is a produce farmer out of Frankfort,” Darnell shares. “We’re using their winter squashes. In the summer, I’ll call them and ask what they picked yesterday, and that will be in my kitchen the next morning. We’re getting beef out of Princeton, Kentucky, and we’re using local pretzel buns.” There is a children’s menu, which includes chicken tenders, flatbread cheese pizza, buttered noodles and a burger so even choosy little ones can nosh. All items will be served small-plate style via counter service, with food being brought to the table. “They’re letting me work with high-end ingredients, and that makes my job so easy,” Darnell concludes.

(Other People’s) Homes for the Holiday


ttendees of the 40th annual Old Louisville Holiday Home Tour will have the opportunity to lighten up, in more than one sense of the word.

This year’s theme is “Light Up Old Louisville.”


This year’s theme of “Light Up JESSICA Old Louisville” refers to the history STEPHENS of how light – at least in the form of incandescent light bulbs – came to much of the city. And participants who hope to add a little spirit to their holiday can look forward to a new feature of the tour: a premium bourbon tasting. The event will feature the story of the Southern Exposition, a series of fairs held annually from 1883 to 1887 in what is now the Old Louisville neighborhood. According to the Frazier History Museum, “The world traveled to Louisville, Kentucky, to discover innovation” during these fairs. The highlight – pun intended – was the installation of 4,600 incandescent light bulbs, which were a new invention at the time. Thomas Edison, a one-time Louisville resident who created the first commercially viable incandescent light bulb, turned the switch to light the exposition in 1883, according to the American Planning Association.

11/29/16 4:29 PM




Many Louisville residents, unless they’re history buffs, might not be aware of Old Louisville’s connection to Edison and to the light bulb, says Lauren Hendricks of A+H Marketing. Hendricks pointed out that seeing Old Louisville’s famed Victorian homes might give visitors a sense of this history in a way they wouldn’t get from a textbook. “You’re seeing some of the most beautiful homes in the city,” Hendricks maintains of the tour, which offers attendees a glimpse into different homes every year. Hendricks calls December “the prettiest time of the year,” pointing out that the tour decorations will encompass other winter holidays in addition to Christmas. Old Louisville features the largest collection of Victorian mansions in the nation, according to the American Planning Association. The group, which recognizes exceptional community design, named Old Louisville to its 2016 Great Neighborhoods list. The tour’s ticket price covers a tasting of the Evan Williams Single Barrel and the company’s Original Southern Egg Nog at Louisville Bourbon Inn, formerly known as the Inn at the Park Bed and Breakfast. The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience is sponsoring the tasting, during which master artisanal distiller Charlie Downs of Heaven Hill will be at the inn to speak with visitors. If you go, expect plenty of company. Hendricks says the tour has pre-sold more tickets than usual. “I don’t know if it’s the bourbon,” she laughs, “but we’re seeing a lot more excitement this year.” The home tour will take place Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4 from noon to 6 p.m., with the bourbon tasting happening from 1 to 5 p.m. both days. Tickets cost $25 through Friday, after which the price rises to $30. As part of a collaboration with the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum, customers can buy a joint ticket for the home tour and the museum’s annual Victorian tea party for $50. VT Tickets are available for purchase online at, by phone at 502.635.5244 or in person at the Historic Old Louisville Visitors Center (1340 S. Fourth St.). COURTESY PHOTOS

A cold chill and the smell of pine filled the air alongside Waterfront Park the weekend after Thanksgiving as many people rushed out to start their Christmas decorating by picking out the perfect tree. Jecker’s Christmas Trees and Tommy Thompson’s Trees set up shop every year across the street from one another, giving people hundreds of trees to choose from. We asked shoppers, “What is your favorite holiday tradition and why?”

The first part is about him befriending a local crack dealer (the excellent Mahershala Ali) who becomes something of a sober father figure to a kid who has been given little guidance, encouragement or love. At the same time, the dealer struggles with the guilt of his chosen profession, which contributes to the decay that makes this kid’s life so tough.

As we skip to the teen years and then adulthood of our main character, we see how his formative years influence his need to survive as a man. It’s hard to write more about the plot, but I will simply say that this is a slow yet hypnotically intense film that is captured with brilliantly planned sound and imagery reminiscent of films by Terrence Malick and Gus Van Sant. With known talents like Andre Holland, Naomi Harris and the three actors playing the main character at different ages, the cast in this film does solid work. Writer/director Barry Jenkins deserves a lot of recognition for such an accomplished piece of filmmaking. “Moonlight” is easily among 2016’s best movies. VT

A Timelessly Fresh Tradition

ow that Thanksgiving has come and gone, there’s no longer any excuse to not dive headfirst into the Christmas season. From Arts & holiday music on 106.9 to Entertainment the festive lights around downtown to the red cups REMY from Starbucks, cultural SISK tradition abounds this time of year, and one of the most locally beloved of those traditions is Actors Theatre of Louisville’s annual production of “A Christmas Carol,” a play based on the classic book by Charles Dickens. Though it’s played for over 40 seasons and is indeed the second-longest continually running production of “Christmas Carol” in the country, the new life breathed into the production by the massive redesign two years ago has yielded an updated tradition and one that is just as timeless as the original that started it all decades ago. According to Mark Walston, props director at Actors and props master on “Christmas Carol,” since the redesign, not much has changed on the new production – the update was just the exact face lift the show needed. “I work very closely with the set designer and the director on each production that we do, and this was a case where the set designer [Antje Ellermann] – her plans for the show were so perfect, which you don’t see very often, that there hasn’t been a lot of change,” he affirms. “It’s just worked out so well that things have not evolved as much as you would think – it’s in a good way. Sometimes with a show, evolution is a good thing, but in this case, I think we haven’t needed to adjust or change too much at all just because everything that she thought about was so right for what we were doing.” Though there’s a myriad of aspects Walston exalts about the new design – from Scrooge’s bedroom curtain to the bowl of gruel that reveals the face of Marley – he attests that beyond the design of the show, one of the most cherished aspects of producing “Christmas Carol” each year is the reunion of collaborators it hosts. From designers to crew members, coming together for another year of “Christmas Carol” is like a family gathering. Additionally, seeing the younger members of Actors’ Professional Training Company take the stage is particularly special. “Quite a few members of our apprentice company get to be actors in ‘Christmas Carol’ – I think that’s always a great pleasure to see those people get those parts and be a part of it too,” he says. “And this year, there are three or four apprentices from past years who have come back to be in ‘Christmas Carol’ … I think that’s D E C E M B E R 1 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E .

something I always look forward to and that I think makes it feel like a real family – having people back that we know.” It’s a widespread sentiment at Actors and indeed one shared by “Christmas Carol” Production Stage Manager Paul “Pablo” Mills Holmes, who enjoys seeing the faces of the audience just as much as those of his colleagues. “I really love to look at the kids in the audience – the little kids whose parents came to see ‘Christmas Carol’ and their parents probably brought them,” he shares. “So it’s looking at all the generations sitting in the audience every year that really tickles me.” As far as a particular aspect to the production itself that Holmes is especially fond of, the towering Ghost of Christmas Future, which, thanks to the redesign, is imposing and haunting like never before, comes to mind. “Over the years, we’ve had several versions of Christmas Future that usually involved being a 9-foot ghost that appears out of nowhere and walks around the stage and guides Scrooge through his devastating future,” Holmes


relates. “And when we did the new redesign, Future was the thing that we wanted to be the most shocking and different than anything we’ve ever done before. And so we’ve created this giant puppet that appears and covers the stage – it’s about 22 feet tall and has about a 30-foot hand-to-hand span.” The new Ghost of Christmas Future is indeed a spectacle – one that must be seen to be believed – as is the entire show. However, the tradition of “Christmas Carol” is much more than that; throughout the years and various updates, the heart has remained the same: It is a classic Christmas story that boasts a powerful and important message of coming together and treasuring what truly matters. “I’m a big Christmas nut,” laughs Holmes, “and this is a great way to celebrate the season. And the story is about as good a Christmas story as you could ask for … I never get tired of it, and clearly Louisville doesn’t either.” VT “A Christmas Carol” runs at Actors Theatre through December 23.

While I can’t banish the suspicions from your mind, some sessions with a licensed mental health professional might help you to put them into perspective. It may save your marriage. However, if it doesn’t ease your mind, you can always talk to a lawyer. ••• DEAR ABBY: I take a maintenance pain pill for arthritis. I count them every other day to make sure that I’m not taking too many. D E C E M B E R 1 • V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

Wife’s Job at the Gym Has Husband in a Sweat

really need the pills for myself. The doctor prescribes them only once a month, and I know I’m going to run out.

What should I do? I don’t want to hurt my daughter’s feelings, but she needs to stop taking my pills. – IN PAIN IN KANSAS DEAR IN PAIN: Your daughter may have become addicted to your pain medication or be selling them to people who are. It’s time to start keeping your pills under lock and key. Once you do, your daughter may be forced to come clean about the lying – or you may find you’re seeing a lot less of her than you presently do. ••• DEAR ABBY: My husband of 23 years, “Gerald,” quit his job to start his own law firm. He told me about it only after he had quit. I have tried to be supportive, but seven months down the line, he has spent all our “rainy day” cash and earned only one paycheck. We have two teenagers, one who will be going to college in a year. I took a high-paying job a year ago to help pay down our mortgage and fund our son’s college expenses. Gerald claimed the bonus money he received when he quit his old job belonged to him to fund the new venture. He’s now saying that seven months is too little time to make any huge decisions, but we are now going to start liquidating our 401(k)s. This is where I draw the line. He needs to get a job. I have worked every year of our marriage and never quit. I feel like I’m living with a selfish stranger who calls me a “money-hungry stereotypical female” when I ask when he’ll get paid. Is it time for me to take off the rose-colored glasses and file for divorce? – STUCK IN HIS MIDLIFE CRISIS

DEAR STUCK: Your husband should have discussed his career change with you before he quit the law firm. Do NOT allow him to push you into taking money from your 401(k). Because your husband hasn’t yet reached retirement age, when he liquidates his, there will be a penalty for early withdrawal. Consult an attorney – other than your husband – about what your next steps should be to protect yourself and your children because your spouse does not appear to be making rational decisions. ••• DEAR ABBY: I am writing in response to the letter from “Loving Granddaughter” on July 2 who was asking for ways to prepare for the eventual passing of her grandparents, with whom she is very close. A way to help her cope with her premature grief would be to take time to sit down with her grandparents and video a personal interview with them. This “Interview With a Loved One” provides an opportunity to capture her favorite stories and memories as told by her grandparents in their own words. She might even hear some surprising new stories as well! We started doing this with my grandfather when he was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease before he started losing his memory. After he finally succumbed, going back to his interviews was a great way for our family to remember him in the way that he would have wanted to be remembered. – JESSICA IN MISSOURI DEAR JESSICA: That’s a wonderful suggestion, one that I know will be appreciated by many of my readers. Thank you! ••• DEAR ABBY: How do I introduce my unmarried daughter’s baby daddy? Can’t say “husband,” and can’t say “partner” since that seems to most often refer to the LGBTQ community. So how do you define that new role? – I’D LIKE YOU TO MEET ... DEAR MEET: When you introduce your grandchild’s daddy, use his name and say, “This is ‘John,’ ‘Jessica’s’ partner.” The term is not used exclusively by LGBT people, but by straight couples as well.

pets of the week Cassius is a beautiful 4-year-old greyhound/ pit bull terrier mix. He’s a happy dog, eager to learn, but he has a special way of learning. He’s deaf and needs to learn hand signals. Cassius has been great about learning his commands and reads facial expressions to see how you’re feeling. He can be shy at first, but once he warms up, Cassius will follow you around, delighted to be with his person. He enjoys cuddling, running around the backyard, taking naps and playing with his stuffed hedgehog. He’s neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on his vaccinations. Since he thrives being in a home, Cassius is going to stay with his foster family until his forever person comes along. If you’re looking for sweet, furry friend, please consider Cassius! To meet him, email a dog adoption application, found at, to

Sassy is a 3-year-old gorgeous tortoiseshell domestic shorthair cat who transferred to the Kentucky Humane Society from another shelter. Sassy loves attention from people. She appears to get along fine with other cats, but Sassy is the first to admit that dogs freak her out. Sassy loves to lay on a comfy blanket and will even let you wrap her up in it and hold her on your lap as long as you scratch her head. She’s been spayed and micro-chipped and is up to date on all her vaccinations. You can meet Sassy at our adoption center in the Springhurst Feeders Supply, 9485 Brownsboro Road
