As if Derby season weren’t exciting enough, last year we were introduced to an inaugural event that earned the phrase, “A New Trifecta.” Indeed Awards in the Arts, held on Opening Night at Churchill Downs one week before the Kentucky Derby, joined the powerhouse forces of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, Fund for the Arts and Churchill Downs – all Louisville icons in their own right. The celebration of the arts in Louisville expanded far beyond The Stakes Room, where the event was held, and spread through the entirety of Churchill Downs as Opening Night guests enjoyed flash mob performances from local arts organizations as they entered, as they were seated and as they placed their bets. Awards were presented from the Winner’s Circle and broadcast on the world’s largest 4K LED Big Board resulting in an inclusive celebration for all to enjoy. A night typically reserved for dusting off last year’s fascinator took on greater meaning and a new tradition was quickly established. Big bucks were raised, meaning more grant money for local arts organizations, and guests walked away with what I hear was the most coveted gift bag of the year thanks to an impressive list of community and national partners. It’s true that the organizations that comprise Awards in the Arts are highly esteemed, but the personalities behind them that conceived the opportunity and drive the partnership are to be considered absolute centrifugal forces. Despite their bustling schedules as they prepare for this year’s event, we were able to gather four of the most pivotal to discuss what people can expect from this sophomore effort: Karen and Meredith Lawrence of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation (mother and sister-in-law to the Academy Award-winning actress), JP Davis representing Fund for Tonya Abeln the Arts, and Lauren DePaso from Churchill Downs. Read more about the importance of this event straight from the visionaries themselves in this week’s feature and familiarize yourself with this year’s honorees. To borrow a term from Kentucky Derby Festival’s annual corporate luncheon, after this weekend, “They’re Off!” When the first firework explodes into the air, it truly feels like the gates have burst open before us as we all race through the next two weeks in anticipation of the Kentucky Derby. I invite you to consider The Voice-Tribune your color commentator through all of the festivities. We’ll make sure you don’t miss a festive moment.

It was an event hotly anticipated throughout the community in spring 2016. The inaugural Awards in the Arts, a collaborative event between the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, Fund for the Arts and Churchill Downs, was held on April 30, 2016. The night honored some of the city’s top arts leaders and organizations, and saw over $200,000 raised and subsequently awarded through grants to the arts community. Now, the team is gearing up for the second Awards in the Arts, which will be April 29 at Churchill Downs in conjunction with the track’s opening night. All agree that they are set to raise even more this year, further enriching Louisville’s magnificent arts landscape and solidifying this city as an unparalleled hub of arts activity, engagement and collaboration. Key players in the realization of Awards in the Arts are Meredith Lawrence, executive director of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation; Karen Lawrence, mother of Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence; JP Davis, senior vice president of Fund for the Arts; and Lauren DePaso, director of community relations for Churchill Downs Incorporated. With the diverse and expansive skill sets and assets all bring to the table, as well as the authentic motivation and dedication each has for the event and its impact, there is no question Louisville’s arts community will see rejuvenated success and growth following this year’s Awards in the Arts.

$25,000 grant to Actors Theatre of Louisville to support capital improvements at the world-renowned theater $20,000 grant to Commonwealth Theatre Center (formerly Walden Theatre/Blue Apple Players) to increase capacity of education and outreach programs $25,000 grant to Kentucky Shakespeare to support the January 2017 production of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” at The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts $55,000 grant to the Louisville Orchestra to provide live music for identified Louisville Ballet and Kentucky Opera productions in the 2016-2017 season $13,000 grant to the Louisville Youth Orchestra to expand the organization’s training and alumni programs $50,000 grant to support ArtsMatch for Access, a pilot program to increase access to the arts across Greater Louisville

“There’s no reason we shouldn’t have the best right here in Louisville. I want to make sure that we are providing the next generation with what I found was lacking for my daughter’s generation. And maybe they aren’t going to be professionals – maybe that’s not how they’re going to make their living – but there needs to be an outlet for artistic children to cultivate and grow as artists in a place where they feel understood and accepted as unique individuals. Our goal is to do the best that we can to make sure that those children’s needs are met.” — Karen Lawrence, mother of Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence

LOUISVILLE STORY PROGRAM THE DAVID FENLEY, FOUNDER OF UPSTARTU, ARTS INNOVATION AWARD This award is presented to an organization that is fueling innovative work in the arts – the Louisville Story Program.

This organization helps to make Louisville a more inclusive city, in which every community member is heard and where stories are lived together.

“For decades, arts have been such an important part of Louisville’s fabric, and I think it’s critical that we engage a new generation that not only understands our proud past but also understands what it takes to sustain that for years to come. And it’s not just about giving away money; it’s truly about being engaged and understanding that you really do play a part in the arts. The arts aren’t just for these people or those people – the arts are for everybody. Louisville’s a special place, and it’s our job to make sure we sustain that. We are so grateful for the leadership of the Lawrence family and Churchill Downs for helping us make this night possible. It’s a unique collaboration that has worked very well.” — JP Davis, senior vice president of Fund for the Arts

“It was all about engaging the city of Louisville, bringing people to the track for a fun night, raising awareness for a good cause and making people feel like what they’re doing and the money they’re giving is actually having impact. And all of the money raised from last year directly went back into the community through grants, and it’s just been amazing.” — Lauren DePaso, director of community relations for Churchill Downs Incorporated

“We are always looking for creative ways to give back to the community – that is very important to Jennifer and the foundation. The inaugural Awards in the Arts last year was a huge success in that not only was it a fun night and unlike anything Louisville’s seen before, but the event also raised a lot of money. The impactful grants made by the Jennifer Lawrence Arts Fund in its first year motivated us to say, ‘OK, last year was great, now how are we going to make this event bigger and better to raise even more money this year?’” — Meredith Lawrence, executive director of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation

pring has finally sprung in Louisville. The days are growing longer, the temps are warmer and the first dogwoods are in bloom. And of course, it’s time for some spring cleaning to clear out the winter cobwebs.

What if a broom and dustpan isn’t enough, though? What if you need a few skilled hands to help give a room a life? What if your whole house needs a complete makeover? A contractor may be what is needed for the ultimate spring clean. Founded by Mark Clore nearly a quarter-century ago, Clore Construction Company is a full-service company with nine full-time employees and a handful of licensed subcontractors who can tackle a top-to-bottom remodel as easily as laying down a new kitchen floor. The Voice-Tribune visited Mark, his son Geoff and his crew on-site, where a fullscale renovation was taking place inside the

first floor of his client’s home in Audubon Park. “Years ago, I had an uncle who had rental property,” Mark says. “I’d go out with him to tear stuff out, demolition, et cetera. In my adult life, I had other jobs; some people would be surprised to hear I was a commercial baker for 15 years. Some life changes made me find a Monday-through-Friday job, and I worked for a company called Lesher Fire Protection.” Mark’s life changed again following the purchase of Lesher by Tyco International in 1998. Not wanting to work for corporate America and having bought, remodeled and sold a few homes on his own already, he made the decision to go all in on the remodeling business. Though Mark started off as a subcontractor, he saw better opportunities in directly servicing the client. “Working for the end user, you get to develop a working relationship. I enjoy that part. I enjoy making people happy.” The happiness Mark and Geoff bring to their client base has helped grow their business; around 90 percent of their work comes from referrals and repeat business.


Geoff joined his father several years ago, and has learned much about making those connections since then. “Over the years, I’ve watched that transform,” he says. “Every call he takes is someone he knows, someone he’s done work for or a friend of a friend. Just watching that grow over time has been quite impressive. What I’ve watched him build over time, to me, it makes it known that that’s something that can be done. The rapport you create with people is the most important thing that’s happening here.” The Clores’ presence in the Louisville community goes beyond remodeling. Over the years, their company has donated removed cabinetry and appliances to Habit for Humanity and supported Hildegard House, the first and only comfort care home in Kentucky for those in their final stage of life with nowhere else to go. “Doing well enough for your business to be able to help folks out like that,” Mark adds, “is a very rewarding thing.” VT Clore Construction Company 502.491.1760

Bob Booker in 2016. Tucker Booker Donhoff + Partners Architects is now known as: Donhoff Kargl Nall Architects (DKN).

Three years ago, feeling Louisville needed professional sports to attract and retain talented young people in our community, 41 local residents launched a soccer club around which our town could rally. Aptly named Louisville City FC, the team has quickly built a reputation for winning and drawing some of the United Soccer League’s largest crowds.

The name change reflects the current ownership and leadership of the company. Founding members Bob Booker retired recently and Elbert Tucker passed away in 1984. Long-time partners Robin L. Donhoff, Thomas Kargl and Patrick Nall are current owners of the architecture firm, which was founded in 1972.

A study conducted last year by the City of Louisville determined a soccer-specific stadium is needed to maintain and grow the professional game here. Now, after months of work with various property owners, Louisville City FC is a step closer to making that a reality. Tracts of land are under option in the Butchertown neighborhood, where the club plans to transform 40 acres into a 10,000-seat, soccer-specific stadium and adjacent development including space for offices, hotels and retail. Through public-private partnership, LouCity intends to continue the revitalization of downtown Louisville and surrounding areas in space occupied by the former Challenger Lifts headquarters, an above-ground oil tank facility, a storage space and auto salvage lot. A 10,000-seat soccer-specific stadium would open in 2020 on a site that is, as with the club, a winner. It’s situated next to interstates 64 and 71, blocks from Main Street; a close walk from the Big Four Bridge; and within view of the downtown Louisville skyline. LouCity is working with city government, Metro Council members and state economic development officials to make the project a reality. Construction of a stadium and nearby development, including office and retail space, would create jobs, drive tax revenues and spur economic growth beyond soccer. SUPERSTAR HARRY CONNICK JR. TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THE 143RD KENTUCKY DERBY Churchill Downs Racetrack announced last week that multiplatinum recording artist Harry Connick Jr. will sing our national anthem at the 143rd Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands on Saturday, May 6, 2017. The multiple Grammy and Emmy award-winning entertainer and host and executive producer of his own nationally syndicated entertainment show “HARRY,” will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” live for more than 160,000 fans at the Kentucky Derby. The performance will take place in the Kentucky Derby Winner’s Circle just after 5 p.m. and be broadcast live as part of NBC’s Kentucky Derby coverage. “We are excited for Harry Connick Jr. to perform our national anthem for the millions of Derby fans across the globe,” said Kevin Flanery, president of Churchill Downs Racetrack. “He’s one of the finest entertainers in the world and his performance will help make 2017 another great year at the Kentucky Derby.” Harry Connick Jr. has exemplified excellence in every aspect of the entertainment world. He has received recognition with multiple Grammy and Emmy awards as well as Tony nominations for his live and recorded musical performances, his achievements on screens large and small and his appearances on Broadway as both an actor and a composer. The debut season of his new daytime TV Show “HARRY” was recently recognized with five Emmy nominations, including a nomination for best host. Harry Connick Jr. is the ninth artist to perform the national anthem since Churchill Downs began the tradition in 2009. Last year’s anthem was performed by Lady Antebellum. TUCKER BOOKER DONHOFF + PARTNERS ARCHITECTS BECOMES DONHOFF KARGL NALL ARCHITECTS

“The name change and re-branding reflects more accurately our structure and executive leadership,” said Rob Donhoff, CEO of Donhoff Kargl Nall Architects. “Our clients past and present will notice no other changes in our well-respected and recognized architectural business and staff.” Among the firm’s most recent projects of note are the University of Louisville J. D. Nichols Campus Parking Structure in Louisville, the LEED® Certified Corporate Offices of Donhoff Kargl Nall in the NuLu district of Louisville and the Northtown Village Senior Care Facility in East Chicago, Indiana. DKN Architects is currently working on the third phase of RiverPark Place, a new apartment building for Poe Development on the Ohio River, among other projects, including the sixth consecutive new office building at the High Wickham development near Old Henry Road in Louisville. Additionally, Triangle Springs Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina; the Humana Unity Building in the Louisville downtown core district; the Underwriters Safety and Claims Headquarters building; Beckett Springs Hospital in West Chester, Ohio; and Cottonwood Springs Hospital in Olathe, Kansas are small samplings of the large diversity of building types that the firm has designed. The firm, which is headquartered in the revitalized downtown NuLu neighborhood of Louisville, employs 14. For more information, including portfolios and profiles, visit LOUISVILLE AREA HOME SALES UP 4.6% AND MEDIA PRICE UP 6.5% WITH CONTINUED LOW INVENTORY The Greater Louisville Association of Realtors® (GLAR) reported sales up 4.67% year-to-date (YTD) for 2017. Sales totaled 3,608 for the first quarter versus 3,447 last year. With the continued lower inventory, the average price YTD was up 8.62% and the median price was up 6.55%. In Jefferson County, the average price in March 2017 was $193,172 and the median was $155,000. For all MLS areas, the inventory of available properties was 19.14% lower than at the same time last year. In Jefferson County, the inventory of homes and condos for sale was also 21.52% lower than March 2016. Inventory in Oldham and Bullitt Counties was down 13.73% and 18.71%, respectively. GLAR releases monthly statistics mid-month to allow for the most accurate and comprehensive reporting possible. Local REALTORS report their residential sales totals to GLAR, and publishing the statistics mid-month allows for the activity that takes place late in the month to be counted. This ensures that the totals reported show the truest depiction of the local housing market. GLAR President Allison Bartholomew commented that, “Our members are still working in a very strong sellers’ market for homes up to $400k. Between $400-600k, the market becomes slightly more balanced and over $600k, we’re in a buyers’ market in most areas due to the influx of new listings.” The National Association of Realtors’® (NAR) Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun, observed that “buyers came back in force last month as a modest, seasonal uptick in listings was enough to fuel an increase in contract signings throughout the country.” He continued by saying that more buyers entered the market in part due to “the expectation that delaying their home search may mean paying higher interest rates later this year.”

Alan was also longtime member of St. Francis of Assisi Church and a Kentucky Colonel. Alan served his country in the United States Coast Guard as a Hospital Corpsman. He then was employed with the International Harvester Co. (International Trucks Division) living throughout the south in Lexington, KY, Decatur, AL, Stone Mountain, GA, Atlanta, GA, Birmingham, AL, and Huntsville, AL before returning home to Louisville, where he was licensed a KY Real Estate Broker and worked with real estate throughout this area. At the time of his death, he still was an active member of The Greater Louisville Associate of Realtors and, over the years, was elected to its Board of Directors, serving as Treasurer during the construction of the new Board headquarters on Dutchmans Lane and later as Vice-President.

Clemmens, Judy Kay

Judy Kay Clemmens of Goshen, Kentucky born November 20, 1955, died on Good Friday, April 14, 2017 with her husband at her side. She battled cancer to the end while being an encouragement to others throughout the challenging journey. A force of nature with a quick and infectious laugh, she was known for her charitable work as an indefatigable advocate and guardian for the needs of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Her passion to serve others knew few bounds and was only surpassed by the joy she brought to so many, including children. The children of family, friends, and neighbors all tell stories of times when “Aunt Judy” made them feel they were the most special people on earth. Judy was born in St. Louis, Mo. and went to grade school in Oklahoma City, OK, before moving to the Louisville area where she lived the remainder of her life. She leaves Nelson Clemmens, devoted husband of thirty years who was the center of her life. Their marriage was

truly a match made in Heaven. Family survivors include her mother Joyce Justus; her siblings John Justus, Robin Justus, Bill Nogalski (with his wife Ginger Legeai), and Jim Nogalski (with his wife Melanie Greer Nogalski); and her nieces Megan Kay Nogalski (with soon to be spouse Brian Murray) and Toni Marie Nogalski (with husband William Jake Harrison); and her dear friend, Barbara Mishler. Visitation was on Wednesday, April 19, from 3:00-7:00 p.m. at Pearson’s Funeral Home. A private memorial service and burial in Cave Hill will be at a later date.

These numbers alone thought was possible 20 years ago. This is not a col- would be reason enough for a Major League team to select the umn about Lamar JackDarlington, Pennsylvania native son. This is a column about with the first overall pick. But there’s more. Brendan McKay. If you haven’t been paying attention to what McKay has been doing this season, or for the past two, then the time to start is right now. A year ago, McKay became the first player ever to win the John Olerud Award, given to the best twoway player in college baseball, in back-to-back seasons. He seems like a pretty safe bet to make it a three-peat in 2017, and he’s also the current odds-on favorite to bring home the Golden Spikes Award, which is essentially college baseball’s Heisman Trophy. With the continuing success of the Louisville baseball program and the way Dan McDonnell is recruiting, it’s certainly possible that the Cardinals will have another player in the hunt for the Golden Spikes Award soon. They could also just as easily have another player who is talked about in terms of being a potential No. 1 pick in the MLB Draft. Heck, it was just a year ago that outfielder Corey Ray fit both of

TVT.indd 18

McKay might also be the best overall hitter in all of college baseball. Despite opposing pitchers being overly cautious when the 6-foot-2, 220-pound junior steps in the box, McKay

enters this weekend hitting .405, the best mark in the ACC. He leads UofL in that category as well as home runs (7), slugging percentage (.685), on-base percentage (.524) and walks (28). “You have a lot of guys who are two-way players, but one skill kind of overshadows the other,’’ McDonnell told Yahoo Sports earlier this month. “If you put Brendan the pitcher on one side and Brendan the hitter on the other side, they could almost have their own competition to see who’s better at that craft.’’ The extent of McKay’s versatility was fully felt in Louisville’s series-opening win over Georgia Tech last week in Atlanta. Even on a relatively pedestrian night at the plate, McKay still managed to produce twice as many hits by himself (2) as he allowed to the Yellow Jackets (1) over eight dominant innings. The Cardinals won the game 3-0 and went on to produce their third series sweep of an ACC opponent so far this season.

None of this has gone unnoticed to the outside world, which typically doesn’t turn its attention to college baseball until the NCAA tournament rolls around. In the last two weeks, McKay has been interviewed live on ESPN as well as profiled by the Associated Press, USA Today and Baseball America. He was also the subject of a shareable video produced by ESPNU, which referred to the Cardinal superstar as a “modern day Babe Ruth.” Whether McKay’s future in professional baseball will be defined by his prowess on the mound or at the plate or by both is impossible to know at this moment. What isn’t impossible to know is that whenever Louisville’s 2017 baseball season has come to a close, McKay will have solidified his status as the best to have ever played the game in a Cardinal uniform. Get out to Jim Patterson Stadium and see him with your own eyes while you still have the chance. VT

to calculate how well Cal’s freshmen will immediately translate their skills to the college game. Some show up college-ready. John Wall, Brandon Knight, Anthony Davis, Julius Randle, took virtually no seasoning to make them good to go. But some..? Even Monk, Fox and Adebayo had to be handled, had to have some of their bad habits removed. DeMarcus Cousins, Michael KiddGilchrist and Karl-Anthony Towns had to be brought along. Jamal Murray had to tone down his shot selection. Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker had to be used strategically. And then there’s the “Skal Labissiere syndrome.” Looks great.

He WAS young. The fault was ours, in our expectations and easy assumptions, our gullibility, our wanting too much for him to be Anthony Davis. The fault was ESPN’s and’s. The fault was the University of Kentucky’s publicity machine. The fault was Calipari’s. Never blame any one of these freshmen for not being older or more experienced or better than he is. VT

Dez Fitzpatrick scored on a 19-yard pass from Lamar Jackson in the second quarter.

Trey Smith scored from eight yards out to tie the game in the first quarter as Devante Peete signaled for the touchdown.

Future Cards and Cats Shine in KDF Basketball Classic

his future teammates. The 6-foot-8 small forward is ranked No. 87 in ESPN100. “I haven’t seen a lot of these guys, and this was my first time seeing them. I’ve played against Darius before and I played against Lance, but I had never seen Malik before. So it was good to come down here and play with those guys. I think everybody is really solid. Darius, Lance and Malik are all great players, and next year, we’ll be able to shine on the highest level.” To round out the bunch is Louisville’s highest rated recruit. Malik Williams, standing tall at 7-foot-0 is from Fort Wayne, Indiana, and is ranked No. 29 in the ESPN100. He says it was a nice experience to be able to play before the fans and with his future teammates. “Off the court, we link really good right now. That will build together on the court once we get to play together more. Darius controls the ball and is a good point guard. Jordan is a great shooter and Lance is an all-around player. All of them are great.” Louisville is one of three teams with the best odds to win a national championship next year. Of course, that is if Louisville star, Donovan Mitchell — who played in the Derby event three years ago — returns for his junior season. He was at the game last weekend, and I’m sure Cardinal fans were hopeful Mitchell’s presence was a sign that he will return. But time will tell. When Williams was asked what he expects next season if Donovan returns, he said, “We’ll be No. 1 in the nation and win it all.” It seems the 2017 recruiting class for Louisville and Kentucky bring tremendous promise and have significant expectation for what will be an entertaining 2017 college basketball season.

Having been to Abu Dhabi before, we looked over the ship’s offerings of shore excursions and decided to go to the oasis town of Al Ain, two and a half hours away. We were interested in the fact that it’s a lovely, less frantic town where much of the royal family has chosen to live in palaces that are built out of sight of street traffic. There are no skyscrapers in Al Ain at all. Al Ain also lived up to its billing of being an oasis town. On the approach to the city, it was immediately apparent that we were entering a really green city – lots of trees and grass that needs regular mowing. We haven’t seen that for more than a month’s travel. Most street intersections cross each other in roundabout form and are decorated with flowers, shrubbery and sculptures. Don’t misunderstand, the place is still hot, hot, hot. Much of the greening is accomplished with simple and sophisticated irrigation systems. Our first stop was at Al Ain Oasis, where we saw for the first time the operation and management of an oasis. We learned that it is a threetiered oasis garden. Under this system, each plant cares for the others.

meat market with great cuts of meat, including camel, hanging in the window. Camel milk, both fluid and dried, is also offered in other stores in great abundance. And there were stores with pots, pans and other cooking implements too numerous to account for. For lunch, we went to a nice hotel where tourists and locals enjoyed a buffet with great variety. Pastas, soups, Asian treats, fresh salads and something that could pass for Chicken McNuggets pleased everybody. Our final stop before heading back the long road to Abu Dhabi was what was called the “Camel Market.” It was enormous and dealt with a whole lot more than camels. First of all, it was a great mall in the sense there were rows and rows of streets with regular stores for clothing, souvenir and household shopping. Then, we moved on to the livestock. Sheep, goats and more sheep and goats were on offer (that’s the way they say it over here) before we got to the actual camel area. We were not quite prepared for what we saw. It wasn’t awful. Just pen after pen of small, medium and large camels, with many in each pen. We were further surprised to learn that many of these camels were not raised on camel ranches in the neighborhood. They were imported from Australia where

camels are actually considered to be pests like deer in Jefferson County. Here, camels are more than “ships of the desert.” They are dinner. And sometimes, one can cost the equivalent of $1,000 for a camel for a single dinner. I didn’t find out if the hump was the prized cut, sort of like the drumstick. In all of our travels, we have never been served camel, but after this trip to the camel market, I can tell you it is not in short supply. Anyhow, our visit to the camel market caused us to have a whole lot of flies on our air-conditioned bus back to the ship. So we played sleep and swat for two hours all the way home. After two days in the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, we sailed into Salalah in Oman. It is the capital and seat of the governor, or wali, of the Omani province of Dhofar. The city is the second largest city in the Sultanate of Oman. I don’t think they get a lot of tourists. The terminal is not particularly tourist-friendly but they have lots of huge waterside cranes, the kind that can pick up enormous containers and move them from ship to shore and vice versa. We drove to the Sultan Qaboos bin Said Mosque, which is enormous and beautiful. It was built in 2009, 39 years after he

ascended the throne. The mosque is white marble with a glorious soaring ceiling. There is a fabulous Swarovski crystal chandelier that fills the central dome. There are no chairs or pews. There is a white marble floor with a beautiful and thick green, gold and white rug that is almost wall-to-wall. It holds 32,000 people! Everyone removes their shoes outside and walks inside on the cool white marble then onto the rug where they kneel and worship four times a day. Their vocal prayers have a sing-song cadence, foreign to our ears but lovely. The mosque is mainly for men but has a prayer room for women. Our gentle and charming guide led us to a large rack containing books on the Islamic religion. The Quran was written 1,400 years ago. We were invited to take a book if we wanted. On to the frankincense museum. This is gum resin from the frankincense tree, used in religious and medical rituals. You can purchase both frankincense and frankincense oil in the souk. In its dried form, it looks like lumps of pale brown sugar. The city is a popular destination for tourism due to the natural attractions of the nearby mountains and abundant stands of frankincense trees lining mountain Wadi courses. The climate supports wildlife more


often seen in East Africa such as leopards and hyenas. It is one of the few ancient areas on the Arabian Peninsula that has extensive coconut cultivation. In ancient times, coir from the thick husk of the coconut of the local, tall variety was used to stitch the planking of the traditional sewn boats used in the Western Indian Ocean. They also have banana plantations. Salalah has the ruins of the fortified town Sumharam, an important port from 100 B.C. to A.D. 400. The strategic location of this port made it one of the major entry ports to India, the Middle East and Africa. Only Emirates can work there except for teachers. Most people usually make $1,500 a month, pay no tax and their education and healthcare are free! That evening, our friend Malcolm gave a big dinner party for his and our friend Millie, the photographer. We had the longest banquet table ever and even the ship’s general manager and the executive concierge attended. The next day, we sailed the Arabian Sea. The day after that, we were in the Gulf of Aden and then two days in the Red Sea. We finally docked in Aquaba, Jordan and prepared to go off the ship to Petra. VT

New Derby Events

One of the best aspects of Derby season is the tradition and annual events for all to look forward to. However, there is a crop of brand-new events this year looking to make a splash on the scene, and to learn more about them, we chatted with the fine folks behind these diverse affairs.

1081 AFFAIR What is the 1081 Affair? The 1081 Affair is the inaugural gala of The Brendon P. Bachelor Foundation for Sports and Education. Brendon’s time with us was cut short in an automobile accident in May 2014. The foundation was formed to continue his passion for sports and education and his love for children. 1081 is Brendon’s birth month and year. How will it stand out among all the other wonderful events this season? I love that our city is home to so many wonderful events. The 1081 Affair will stand out because we are an intimate affair. My background as an event curator, along with our incredible board and vendors, have all been heavily involved in the creation of the event. I am excited to share our collective efforts with the city of Louisville. Why is the event important for The Brendon P. Bachelor Foundation and the greater community? Nineteen percent of people in Kentucky live in poverty, and 8,000 children are currently in Kentucky’s Foster Care system and waiting to find their forever home. The state is forced to take urgent steps to care for neglected,

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

TVT.indd 46

abandoned and orphaned children. We created Brendon’s Duffels of Hope to be gifted to children in the foster care system. Our intent is to comfort children removed from their homes due to the drug epidemic in Kentucky. All children deserve love, respect and dignity, but not all children get those things. When a child is taken from their home and placed in the care of the state, a social worker arrives with a black plastic trash bag for their belongings. It is estimated that the average foster child moves an average of seven times before the age of 18, and with each move, their belongings are placed in a trash bag once again. These children are faced with many challenges, but we have the opportunity to do something small but powerful to help. Proceeds from the 1081 Affair event will provide Brendon’s Duffels of Hope to Foster Children and provide programs designed to enrich, love, support and educate the children of our community. – Erica Bachelor, president of The Brendon P. Bachelor Foundation 1081 Affair Wednesday, May 3, 7 p.m. The Gramercy

THE GREAT GATSBY THURBY What is The Great Gastby Thurby? The Great Gatsby Event is part of our Signature Event Series. All of our events are created to bring fantasies to life. All events of our series are created through a thorough vetting process to determine experiences that specific groups of people would enjoy at a reasonable price point. In addition to Great Gatsby Thurby, our other signature events include Hogwarts Christmas Extravaganza, Prohibition Repeal Party and Dr. Seuss Christmas. We are also considering a variety of other events to release in 2017-2018. What can guests expect at the event? This event is all about the experience, making guests feel like they have stepped right into the book or movie. We will be offering a VIP lounge in Grand Hall of the Water Tower in addition to the Main Tent. The event will feature 1920s decor, live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, a full open bar sponsored

by Evan Williams and a DJ spinning modern club music and music reminiscent of the era. How will it stand out among all the other wonderful events this season? The Gatsby Event was intentionally held on Thurby because it is an event for the locals. Most events you find in Louisville Derby week are tailored to out-of-town guests or celebrities, or the tickets are priced higher than locals are wanting to spend. We wanted to create something that locals could look forward to whether they were coming from the track or if they are just looking for a night out with friends. – Lauren Brown, sales and events manager of Michaelis Events

RAINBOWS & ROSES SOIRÉE What is Rainbows & Roses Soirée? Rainbows & Roses Soirée is the first annual event of the LGBTQ+ Community Coalition and will be THE event for those who want to soirée their way during Derby season regardless of gender orientation or identity. With fashion, drag and aerial performances, art experiences and more happening at our two different venues, it’ll be something people haven’t experienced in Louisville before! How will it stand out among all the other wonderful events this season? Historically there was a LGBTQ-focused event — Down and Derby — which was the one Derby season event specifically held for our community. Rainbows & Roses fills that void and creates a contemporary space for everyone — including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and our allies — to come together to celebrate in spaces that are welcoming and created by and for the LGBTQ+ community.

LGBTQ+ Community Center, we need expanded capacity – so your support through purchasing a ticket, sponsoring the event or donating all make a difference.

Why the event important for the LGBTQ+ Community Coalition and the greater community? Rainbows & Roses is the first fundraiser of the LGBTQ+ Community Coalition and will support our Coalition’s efforts to co-create a community center by hiring a coordinator to keep the momentum going. We’ve had town halls and monthly community meetings, organized by volunteers. To realize our dream of a

WILD THURBY What is Wild Thurby? Wild Thurby is the brainchild of a group of Louisville business leaders with a passion for all things Derby and for working to make Louisville, Kentucky, a better community all year long. These business leaders, all of whom are supporters of Family Scholar House, were discussing the need for more opportunities for Louisvillians to have their own “local” Derby event. While chatting about the upcoming Derby season, they said, “Why not have a fun Derby week event that could also raise money and awareness for a great cause?” With many out-of-towners coming to Louisville for the Oaks and Derby, the idea of Wild Thurby was born as an opportunity for locals to enjoy Thursday of Derby Week with their own opportunity to dress up, party and celebrate all that is Louisville. It will be an evening filled with fun, great music by “This, That and the Other,” fabulous craft cocktails and delicious food catered by Masterson’s. How will it stand out among all the other wonderful events this season? This event is located at the Gheens Foundation Lodge at the Parklands whereas most events are downtown. Also, folks can come dressed as they please — from their infield attire to their Clubhouse attire to their Jockey Club attire! We really wanted this event to be accessible to everyone.

Why is the event important to Family Scholar House and the greater community? Many nonprofits have selected audiences, and what we want is to expose Family Scholar House to the greater local community and an audience that may not have the good fortune to know about our good works. –Greg Cobb, chair of the Wild Thurby committee

For this Multi-Masking skin care treatment, Erica McDowell, owner of SKYN LOUNGE used Carita Lagoon Bath Mask that instantly moisturizes and Carita Biological Mask that firms and revitalizes.

Beauty & the Blogger

On her blog, Her Bendy Life, Paloma Thacker documents, “simple tips for your messy, beautiful life.” If you follow the petite yogi either on her blog or Instagram, you know that there is usually more beauty than mess. In addition to the gravity-defying poses from which you may catch her smiling on her site, Paloma also shares helpful fashion and beauty tips with her readers. This made her the ideal candidate to test some pre-Derby beauty solutions at SKYN LOUNGE as well as the ultimate canvas to paint with pops of color in preparation for the early morning outings on her social calendar.

Erica says, “The purpose of Multi-Masking is to use multiple masks on various parts of your face for different skin concerns. For example, if you are oily, you can use the Biological Mask on your T-zone and a hydrating mask on your cheeks.”

“These masks do not harden,” Erica explains. “After allowing the mask to sit for 20 minutes, you can rub in the remaining product before you rinse it off with warm water.”

For an early morning event like Oaks and Derby Brunch or Dawn at the Downs, Erica recommends highlighting your face to add an illuminated, dewy glow. On Paloma, she used ZenSKYN Mineral Illuminated Concealer in light.

Erica shares that a great tip for highlighting is to use a half to a full shade lighter than your skin tone.

A fresh natural look with a pop of color is perfect for a garden brunch or early morning at the track. On Paloma, Erica used ZenSKYN Color Stick Lips in Cordial. “I love the bright pop of fuchsia on the lips to complement my white jumpsuit. It’s perfect for when you want the boldness of a red lip but are transitioning into spring,” Paloma explains.

s high school friends, Kate Welsh and Rachel Bell were already rolling around the idea of eventually embarking on a joint career endeavor. Fast forward 15 years and they are now smack dab in the middle of their fifth year as The Hat Girls, designing and creating custom one-of-a-kind hats and headpieces for women across the country to wear to the races and

other special events. Both Louisville natives, the girls explored their fashion interests in various cities – New York, Las Vegas, Chicago – before landing back in Louisville in 2013 with a plan to make their mark on the heads of the Bluegrass State’s race-goers. Now in their second year as the Official Hat Designers of the Kentucky Derby Festival, Rachel and Kate have taken on their biggest and bravest venture to date by


opening a brick and mortar shop and showroom this season. In previous years, clients have been able to hire Kate and Rachel to produce original headwear from inception to execution, but were only able to do so strictly by appointment. So, why a storefront now? According to Rachel, “Our new showroom and studio gives us the opportunity to connect with our clients throughout the entire design experience and to make our brand available to a wider audience by offering a comprehensive range of styles at an expanded price range,” she says. While custom-created orders are still a

major pillar of The Hat Girls’ business, their retail shop has seen booming success since their opening in mid-March in Norton Commons. Upon a single step into the beautifully appointed space, it is easy to get a vibe of both the eye for style The Hat Girls bring to their designs as well as the wide range of what their skills allow them to offer patrons. Fascinators, wide-brim Southern-style floppy hats, structured sinamay headwear and feather headdresses are only a few of the unique styles that grace the shelves and hat stands of The Hat Girls’ first shop. If you can dream it, they can do it. But the commitment is major and the hours are long for the girls. One of the things that helps balance the endless days they spend designing, sewing and constructing their pieces is the immense satisfaction that comes from presenting a client with a come-to-life version of exactly what they had in mind for her headwear. Presently, Kate and Rachel are spending their days between the retail side of their shop and the myriad events they are involved in leading up to the Kentucky Derby. But they spend their nights creating. Now you might be wondering: When do they sleep? Ask either one, and they will tell you, “Sleeping is for after Derby.” In addition to the one-ofa-kind orders they are fulfilling, and a gorgeous shop full of every topper you can imagine, the girls also have hats available for purchase in several local boutiques (including Rodeo Drive), as well as at Von Maur in Oxmoor Center. This year, they are offering a selection of men’s fedora and boater hats as well, adorned with custom trimmings. VT The Hat Girls 10708 Meeting St. @thehatgirls

Wander into ‘Wonderland’ at the Speed

By Minda Honey | Arts & Entertainment


mid the Speed Museum’s two exhibits exploring the South – “Southern Accent” and “Southern Elegy” – you’ll find an exhibit celebrating the museum’s 90-year history. “The Wonderland Museum: Hidden Marvels from the Speed’s Collection” is a special opportunity to see the weird, wonderful and rarely seen items in the Speed Art Museum’s collection and storage. Many of the pieces in this collection have been there from the very start. In 1927, when Hattie Bishop Speed founded the museum to honor her late husband, she accepted art from friends and acquaintances – some of the pieces were priceless works of art, others were not. The exhibit is a trip back in time and journey through Mrs. Speed’s mind. While every piece was cataloged and stored over the years, this is the first time some have been on display in the museum. And what better place for them to make their debut than the newly remodeled Speed? “‘Wonderland Museum’ plumbs the museum’s collection to reveal curious

treasures of art and history, many of which have rarely been on view,” says Scott Erbes, curator of decorative arts and design at the Speed Art Museum. “Ranging from historical marvels to very personal mementos, these objects reflect the broader interests of Hattie Bishop Speed, her friends and Louisvillians at large at the turn of the 20th century.” Some of the more remarkable objects in the exhibition include wax portraits of Hattie Bishop Speed and her husband J.B. Speed, a plaster cast of one of Mrs. Speed’s hands, a concept drawing for Disney’s original Bambi and elaborate bird-feather fans. It also features a cane said to have been


made by Abraham Lincoln’s father, tiny gold nuggets from the 1849 California Gold Rush and a chair from Louisville’s old Galt House Hotel – all in all, a truly eclectic assortment of artifacts from the Speed’s and our country’s past. Even after the death of Mrs. Speed in 1942, donations continued to come in. The collection now has more than 13,000 objects. “We’ve enjoyed scratching the surface of some of the more unseen treasures of the Speed, and later in the year, we’ll rotate some more pieces out of storage to showcase even more nuggets from the archives,” says Erbes. “It’s been great fun to explore and bring these pieces to life again.” The exhibition will run through most of the year, so there will be ample time to return again and again to see the additions to the exhibit. “Wonderland” has been a hit with visitors. In a city that has grown considerably in the last nine decades, the Speed is the keeper of a history that is vital to our discussions around community and art as our city moves ever forward. For that, set aside an afternoon to thank Mrs. Speed for her contributions with a trip through “Wonderland.” VT “Wonderland Museum” is free with general admission and is on view during all regular Speed Art Museum hours, Wed - Sat, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Owsley Free Sundays noon to 5 p.m. To learn more, visit

Down the Stretch By Mariah Kline | Health & Wellness


unter S. Thompson famously labeled the Kentucky Derby as both “decadent and depraved.” While he may not have been wrong, the Derby does not have to be as much of a guilty pleasure this year. To kick off the big week, the Kentucky Derby Festival is hosting Neigh-Maste, a free yoga class held on the Great Lawn of Waterfront Park. The class takes place on Friday, April 28 as part of Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville.

The one-hour class is designed for absolutely anyone, whether you’ve never taken a yoga class before or you’ve been practicing for years. For those who have never tried yoga, experts recommend listening to your body and not overexerting yourself. “We want people to meet themselves exactly where they are and work within that level of activity,” says Jamie Calzi of 502 Power Yoga. “That’s why it’s called ‘practicing’ yoga – because each day is different.” Calzi, who created the event and came

up with the clever name, has been practicing yoga for eight years and teaching for four. She currently teaches and acts as the community relations director for 502 Power Yoga. For Neigh-Maste, Calzi will be sharing the stage with fellow instructors Betsy Jones and Carrie Keller of Betsy’s Studio and Dana McGowan of Buti Yoga at PLAY. Last year’s class had almost 200 people in attendance, and as an official event for Kentucky Derby Festival 2017, they’re hoping to see many more this year. One special guest in attendance will be social media star Morgan DeYoung a.k.a. the Southern Yogi. Admission to the event is free with a 2017 Pegasus Pin, but participants must register and sign a waiver form beforehand. The waiver can also be found on KDF’s website for those who want to review and sign it prior to the class. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., and the session lasts from noon until 1 p.m. Guests should bring their own yoga mat and water, and wear something comfortable. Before the class, attendees can have their hair braided by experts from Primp Style Lounge. Afterward, the Chow Wagon will have a variety of food vendors ready to serve lunch. In keeping with the horse theme, a very special Derby basket will be given away to one lucky yogi. The basket includes a $100 Visa gift card, yoga mat, yoga towel,

Derby glasses and more. All you have to do to be entered in the giveaway is post a picture on Instagram with #neighmaste in the caption. What sets Neigh-Maste apart from other yoga classes is not just its venue or its theme, but rather the level of passion and excitement the instructors have for the exercise. “I love yoga because it’s accessible to all ages and all levels of fitness,” affirms Calzi. “Our studio is really focused on community and bringing people together, and NeighMaste ties into that focus. It’s going to be a lot of fun and will not be too challenging for anyone. We’re really excited to host this and to celebrate our amazing city together.” What better way to begin your Derby festivities than with a community of yogis who are ready to celebrate? Whether you want to take part in a healthy activity before the decadence of Derby begins or you just want to spend some time outside, Neigh-Maste is sure to be a great time.

She came to the Kentucky Humane Society from another shelter and is on the lookout for a forever home. Could it be with you? She’s spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations.
