The day before putting this issue to bed, I walked into The Voice-Tribune office, my hands full – though not as full as my to-do list – but instead of rushing to my desk, I stood just inside the doorway for a moment, captivated by the quiet on a deadline day, and smiled. Every present member of the team was hard at work in their own space, focused on their role in producing what I’ve come to think of as a celebration of our city. And that’s how the day continued, albeit with the addition of thoughtful discussion about edits, revisions, assignments pertaining to the next several issues and a bit of personal banter. Why should you care? Because we do, and we want you to know we take our role in this community seriously and your support of The Voice is incredibly meaningful.

Muhammad Ali Blvd. 502.777.6307 EXCLUSIVE ARTIST SHOWCASE 6 p.m. private VIP reception, $100 Craft cocktails Hors-d’oeuvres Complimentary valet parking DANCE PARTY EXPERIENCE 7 p.m. $50 Sounds by DJ John Q Late-night snacks Cash bar *Portion of ticket price is tax deductible




n July 21, a new kind of creative celebration and fundraiser will take place in one of the city’s most underserved areas. The West Louisville ecoHUB Arts Community (TWLEAC) will host OVATION at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage and will present a special honor to Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith, a long-time champion for both her constituents in West Louisville and the arts community. To learn more about the event, we spoke with TWLEAC founder John Shaw-Woo, who will present the award to the councilwoman along with Mayor Greg Fischer.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION “TWLEAC project is a collaborative effort by arts organizations, community leaders, activists, corporations and concerned citizens. We know that art education is a companion of change for disadvantaged children and teens with limited to no access to top-notch performing arts education,” Shaw-Woo said. TWLEAC’s mission is to establish permanent performing arts programming in West Louisville for disadvantaged children and youths. “The OVATION event will help raise the needed funds to launch TWLEAC program on July 23. Four arts groups will provide back-to-back 55-minute classes to 105 children for eight days followed by a closing camp performance on Aug. 3 to showcase what was learned over the two-week period,” he said. Performing Arts programming is facilitated by Commonwealth Theatre, Kentucky Shakespeare, Louisville Ballet and University of Louisville School of Music.

THEIR GOALS The short-term goal is to raise the needed funds to support TWLEAC’s two-week summer camp and to support

TWLEAC’s after-school performing arts program, which will be held at West Louisville libraries and community centers free of charge to all Louisville children in hopes of eliminating the long-standing racial and economic “Ninth Street Divide” issue. “Our long-term goal is to expand TWLEAC after-school performing arts program into a four-hour program, which will include performing arts, tutoring and empowerment classes,” explained Shaw-Woo.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT OVATION “OVATION will be an evening of excitement, discovery and motivation! There will be performances by Louisville Ballet, cellist Candace Diggs, pianist Idris Fredrick, terpsichorean Kristen Findley, a special performance by The Kentucky Gentlemen, and dancing sounds by DJ John Q. “At the event, Barbara Sexton Smith will be presented with our 2018 OVATION Arts Award by Mayor Greg Fischer and myself. Barbara Sexton Smith was selected for this honor because of her years of service at Fund For the Arts and for her unwavering commitment to improving lives in West Louisville,” Shaw-Woo said. Other speakers at the event will include President David James of Louisville Metro Council; Bradley Broecker, the founder of the PNC Broadway in Louisville Series; Denise Sears, president and CEO of Supplies Over Seas; renowned sculptor Ed Hamilton; Gordon Brown, former CEO of Home of the Innocents; and Councilwoman Jessica Green.

A Q&A with Councilwoman and OVATION Honoree Barbara Sexton Smith Why do you believe supporting the arts is so vital for the community of West Louisville?


he arts are critically important to West Louisville for so many reasons. Firstly, they are inculcated in its history and played a vital role in the original economic development of the old Walnut Street corridor. Red-lining bulldozed that away and we must work vigilantly (to restore) the vitality and opportunity for wealth creation by residents in the area. Secondly, the arts help children create a vision they could never imagine on their own. The arts place hope in the hearts of these children, and as we know, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” (The) same goes for little girls and grown women. An arts-rich landscape will improve a child’s self confidence, school attendance, academic achievement and graduation rate. The arts can be used as crime prevention. Give a child something meaningful to do after school 0 7 . 1 2 . 2 0 1 8 V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

and watch them seek positive activities whilst keeping them out of harm’s way.

Tell us about your involvement with West Louisville ecoHUB. What do you look forward to seeing the organization accomplish in the months and years to come? The ecoHUB is becoming another wonderful piece of the mosaic depicting the land of opportunity in our beautiful, historic Russell Neighborhood. Our community’s greatest asset? Our children! All we have to do is show up and support the ecoHUB!

How have you seen the arts community develop and evolve during your years of service to the city?

AlexAnder S. Perry reAltor®

I’ve spent more than 20 years watching the arts transform lives. We watched many children in West Louisville become the first in their family to graduate from college all because they used the arts as their vehicle. It is my hope that ecoHUB will become another great vehicle in which children can choose to navigate their journey. Together, through the arts, we create a great connected community. VT

There’s No Place Like Home KyCAD’s Purchase Of The Speed Mansion Brings Creativity Full Circle

By Laura Ross Photos by Kathryn Harrington


he merits of a cup of coffee should not be discounted. About a month ago, Kentucky College of Arts and Design (KyCAD) president Moira Scott-Payne and founder and chancellor Churchill Davenport took a morning walk down Ormsby Lane in Old Louisville for a staff coffee run to North Lime Coffee & Doughnuts. It’s a normal routine filled with discussions on work, life and how to make their efforts to fully This beautiful building will launch KyCAD a be a place of creativity success. A nagging problem for KyCAD was and learning. finding a permanent — Moira Scott-Payne home for the fledgling independent arts college. As they walked, they came upon a familiar home of another sort, the Speed Mansion at 505 W. Ormsby Ave. There was a “For Sale” sign out front.


“I’m an instinctive person,” said Davenport. “It was kind of like meeting the person you’re going to marry for the first time and you think, ‘What’s going on here?’ It’s magical. We knew we had to do this.” Scott-Payne smiled broadly, “We had to be there. We spotted it and practically jumped the fence to take a look.” The rest, as they say, is history. Literally. A whirlwind of negotiating, planning and, no doubt, several more cups of coffee ensued. KyCAD successfully acquired the landmark 16,700 square-foot Speed Mansion to serve as its permanent home. KyCAD will begin moving in this month. The school’s ambition is to create a world-class college of art and design. The Speed Mansion is well suited to serve as the transformative cornerstone for a prominent urban campus. Scott-Payne is thrilled to have a home for the independent arts college. “This beautiful building will be a place of creativity and learn0 7 . 1 2 . 2 0 1 8 V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

ing,” she said. “KyCAD will have a wonderful base for the research-focused, entrepreneurial art college we are building.” She added that the location is strategic given its proximity to Central Park, the Filson Historical Society and the Speed Art Museum. “The culturally diverse Old Louisville community is a special place that has a long history of supporting the arts. Music, dance and theater are routinely supported by this active neighborhood.” Davenport founded KyCAD in 2009. “Louisville is the perfect town for an arts school,” he said. “Everyone I talked with was as enthusiastic as I was. We did studies, we conducted research and it was clear that it was exactly the right place and time for an independent college of art and design.” Louisville is no stranger to its support of the arts. A late 2017 economic impact study, Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, conducted by Americans for the Arts, found that Greater Louisville’s nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $462.5 million in annual economic activity, supporting 17,529 full-time equivalent jobs and generating $21,413,000 in local and state government revenues. Davenport stressed that there is a vast difference between an arts college and an art department in a larger university setting. “(The former is) totally focused on the arts. You experience art every day. Everyone thinks like an artist. It’s an entire culture and identity that goes very deep.” “We build a holistic experience,” added Scott-Payne, who is working on KyCAD’s state licensure and accreditation. “Art colleges create an experience for students that incorporates their general education requirements while focusing on art that has meaning. You develop and understand the importance of the humanities to the arts and encourage creativity across all disciplines.” After being hosted for eight years by Spalding University, KyCAD decided in April 0 7 . 1 2 . 2 0 1 8 V O I C E -T R I B U N E .

to separate and pursue independent accreditation, a move that accelerated the need for a new base of operations. KyCAD had been searching for new space for the past year to accommodate its growth. Scott-Payne joined KyCAD in 2017 from a position as provost and vice president of academic affairs for Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. She’s actively reaching out to other universities, schools and even businesses to build KyCAD. She sees it not as a competition but a collaboration. “Everyone has been very welcoming. The stronger we all are together, the better we are,” she said. “There are a lot of small industries and companies we’d like to work with alongside our faculty. (We want) to create an interdisciplinary and holistic curriculum that addresses real issues and needs while focusing on a creative base that encourages innovative thinking.” She added, “We want to say, ‘Yes, you will get a job if you come to art school. Yes, you will have communication skills, digital skills, digital literacies.’ Cultural conversations are important to learn. How do we speak each other’s languages, whether you’re a biology student or an art student? Each have different goals and pathways, but they do overlap. We want creativity to bring that together.” While commonly known as the Speed Mansion, the sprawling space that KyCAD will soon call home was built and first occupied by Dexter Belknap in 1885. Eight years later, James Breckinridge “J.B.” Speed, a successful businessman, philanthropist and art collector, purchased the property. In 1906, J.B. Speed married his second wife, Harriet “Hattie” Bishop, a concert pianist, humanitarian and music teacher. Although J.B. died just six years later, Hattie Speed continued to live, teach and perform in the home for decades, adding a recital hall at the rear of the property in 1916. The mansion later housed the Louisville Academy of Music in the 1950s and ’60s, and the Louisville Youth Orchestra was formed there. In 1925, she established the J.B. Speed Memorial Museum (now the Speed Art Museum) in honor of her late husband and his devotion to art. 18

For the last 30 years, the 48-room mansion housed the law practice of Larry Franklin. Franklin passed away earlier this year, but to honor his legacy, KyCAD will create a scholarship in Franklin’s name. “It’s serendipitous to be here,” said Davenport. “The Speed family focused on making Louisville a vibrant place through their belief and patronage of science, arts and education. Hattie Bishop Speed understood that everyone deserves access to arts, music and community. We hope she’d be pleased to see KyCAD in her home.” The institution will continue to use its current space at 849 S. Third St., which includes its 849 Gallery, classrooms, event space and office space. Classes will be held in both buildings, but the open layout and concrete floors of the 849 Building are more suitable for sculpture, painting, installation and other activities. Administrative offices, design space, studios and other uses are envisioned for the mansion. Renovation to the Speed mansion will begin once KyCAD is settled in the space. “We’ll develop spaces for students to create their work, but we will be good stewards of the historical aspect of the building,” said Scott-Payne. “The story and history of the building will foster creativity and a sense of coming into a space that is beautiful and cared for. We want our students to feel the same way.” KyCAD is working on building its student and faculty base through several upcoming events and programs. Licensure should take less than a year to accomplish. “Louisville is the right size and has the right attitude and respect for the arts,” said Davenport. “Louisville’s leaders are inspiring and full of ambition for what we can achieve nationally. KyCAD wants to raise that bar for visual arts.” The entire staff of KyCAD is pushing forward. “Having the new space will create the dynamics and conversations that are so important to our story,” said Scott-Payne. “It was a most fortuitous walk for coffee that day. We are ready to make our story real.” VT 0 7 . 1 2 . 2 0 1 8 V O I C E -T R I B U N E . C O M

This exhibit will feature King’s “Eyesight Series,” inspired by his recent diagnosis with a neurological disorder that is causing his eyesight to slowly deteriorate. The cold glass techniques King used to create this series of pieces he learned from his father, and they include chipping, blasting, acid etching, tinting, painting, casting, laminating and grinding. King’s parents both worked with glass, the artist says: “My father worked in art glass and was a prominent artist in Louisville in the 1980s and 90s, showing regularly at the Kentucky Arts And Crafts Foundation and Gallerie Hertz, among others; and my mother worked in industrial glass, which may be why I chose to create glass art using industrial glass techniques.” King was without a home or studio during the past few months, and says this non-ideal situation helped produce a truly unique line of work: “I worked on these pieces all over town including Okolona, Portland, Clifton and on two occasions renting a cheap motel room in Southeastern Kentucky in order to use the small tabletop and bathtub for acid etching. ...It wasn’t an ideal setup, but forced me to execute the work differently, and so the finished product is often different than if I had every tool and supply I wanted at my disposal, which in the end gave me a completely unique product that I am excited about. It could have only been created under these unorthodox circumstances, and likely circumstances that could not be recreated, making a truly unique work.” King was previously artist-in-residence at the Louisville Free Public Library, and is well known in the Louisville area for his annual “Louisville Is For Lovers” musical compilation series. Craft(s) Gallery (572 S. Fourth Street) is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 12 to 6 p.m. Saturday and 12 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Sip, Sip, Hooray The Champagnery Opens at Architype Gallery

By Janice Carter Levitch Photos by Kathryn Harrington



rinking champagne is the essence of sophistication and celebration. Husband and wife team Brad Stengel and Charlotte Knoop Stengel knew it made perfect sense to open Louisville’s first champagne bar. The idea occurred to them about a year ago as they were celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary. “After we decided to go ahead with the idea, we called our nephew, Eric Wentworth, who has a strong background in cocktails and bartending,” Charlotte said. “We wanted to run the idea past him. The day we called him in to our office, which is the space we are in now for the Champagnery, we jokingly locked all the doors. We knew something special was about to happen and told him he couldn’t run away once he knew what the proposal was.” The Stengels wanted Eric involved because he had successfully opened The Hub Louisville just down the street on Frankfort Avenue. “That opening had put a great demand on his time and energy, but we were hoping he would be as passionate as we are about the idea. It made perfect sense to include his expertise,” Charlotte explained. “Brad is an architect and my education and degree is in architecture, and I work part-time with Brad’s firm, Stengel Hill Architecture,” she said. “This space was originally our architectural firm’s office space, Stengel Hill Architecture. Brad and Chip Hill are the founding architects of the firm. We co-own the building with the Hill family but decided to relocate our firm to 613 W. Main St. and renamed the space Architype Gallery.” Architype Gallery created a space for Charlotte to launch ARCHITYPE, a design house specializing in original leather bags and accessories. The designs reflect thoughtful functionality and sophisticated simplicity. Architype Gallery still exists as a component of the Champagnery, showcasing art that is carefully placed on the walls and wrapping around the interior space, much like you could find

in a museum. But the star of the show is the champagne selection along with other cocktails Eric has created, which will impress even the most schooled aficionado or sommelier. “Our opening, by chance, happened to fall on the same week of our 25th silver wedding anniversary, which only added to the specialness,” Charlotte added. “What also prompted the concept of the Champagnery from a philanthropic point of view is that we had hosted numerous charitable events, and we realized this space could host a lot of events and special occasions.” Located on the corner of Pope Street and Frankfort Avenue, the façade reveals a copper hue that reflects the mood you experience once you pass through the door. The interior is bathed in soft shades of vanilla along with copper accents. Tufted leather banquettes line one wall in the color of champagne pairing beautifully with the copper tabletops and light fixtures that softly illuminate the space. The stone bar glows in the evening light from carefully placed lighting underneath. There are numerous areas for seating, including comfortable lounge groupings and a small private room that can be reserved. “Traveling in Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and other large cities, I saw there are places like this that are successful,” Eric said. “So, I couldn’t say no to the idea; it was a definite yes. Let’s go with it.” The building is in a good spot because of the surrouning pedestrian traffic, Charlotte said. “It’s developed very rapidly. This building (used to be) the neighborhood apothecary. We felt this is great (since) our local apothecary now is kind of place where we go to have a drink and relax.” Along with a vast champagne and specialty cocktail menu, they also offer bites to eat. “Our sommelier developed pairings with all of the items on the food menu, and they are fantastic,” Eric said. “But the great thing about the food menu is there are no designated pairings, 0 7 . 1 2 . 2 0 1 8 V O I C E -T R I B U N E .

long with the sweltering hot days of summer comes one of the season’s coolest events. For 51 consecutive years, Homearama has treated thousands of visitors to the most up-close-andpersonal look at super fabulous homes. This year’s Homearama is better than ever, inside and out. Catalpa Farms, the 200-acre site of 2018’s iteration, is Jefferson County’s first conservation subdivision. Catalpa Farms developer Mike Jones says the area celebrates Mother Nature’s grand design. The tranquil setting is characterized by picturesque woods and a tree canopy, expansive natural views and capacious open spaces in which mature trees and other fauna flourish. Homearama, produced by the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville (BIA), is where cutting-edge design trends merge with the newest construction innovations. For people in the market for a new home or those wanting to be inspired to transform their own space, Homearama has it all. The site features four distinctive styles of architecture: Craftsman, European Traditional, Modern Farmhouse and French Country. The doors to seven homes, five of which are for sale, open to a kaleidoscope of design possibilities. An early glimpse into the homes reveals trending elements such as vaulted and cathedral ceilings, open floor plans, natural stone and repurposed wood. Color palettes range from neutrals to bolder hues. Integrated into several of the houses are home theater rooms, dedicated entertaining spaces and fitness centers. One home displays an exquisite collection of antiquities. The homes showcase how advances in appliances, windows, doors and insulation areas contribute to remarkable energy efficiency that saves money and increases the functionality and comfortability of today’s lifestyles. Homearama also proves that outdoor living is no longer an afterthought to home design. Other highlights of the interiors include gourmet kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, wine bars and imaginative children’s rooms. Home builders and interior designers will be on hand to discuss how their creations evolved from the planning stages to stunning completion. They’ll provide details about everything from the elements of the homes’ unique construction features to the specifics of selecting colors, textures and all the elements that add up to spectacular. Although Ally Adams, manager of shows

and events for BIA, has been involved with Homearama for a few years, this is her first year as show director. “It’s an awesome responsibility and an absolutely exhilarating and fun experience,” she says. “It’s also a lot of hard work and a little bit of insanity. But, I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing.” According to Adams, this year’s event is designed to be a total experience that includes a playground area, an expanded concessions menu that will offer sandwiches and craft beer and a seminar series that will focus on the process of building a custom home, interior design ideas and state-of-the-art home technology products. Home builders participating in Homearama 2018 are Infinity Homes & Development, Jagoe Homes, Mason Construction and Development, P.L. Lyons Architectural Builders, Signature Crafted Homes and Welch Builders. Homearama designers include LL&A Interior Design, Century Entertainment & Furnishings, JLR Designs and Set the Stage. Homearama will be held at Catalpa Farms, 17814 Shakes Creek Drive in Fisherville, from July 14-29. Hours are 5 to 9 p.m. weekdays; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays; and 1 to 6 p.m. Sundays. Ticket gate closes an hour prior to listed closing times. Free parking is available. Regular admission is $10 per person. Children 12 and under may enter at no charge as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Tickets may be purchased with cash or check onsite.

REVERED BUILDER PERRY LYONS ON HISTORY, STYLE AND TRENDS There aren’t many discussions about home building in Louisville in which Perry Lyons’ name doesn’t come up in the first few minutes. Lyons, partner in P. L. Lyons Architectural Builders, has more than four decades of experience in the industry and has gained the reputation new builders strive to emulate and veteran builders regard with both awe and respect. His company’s prominence can be seen in developments such as Spring Lake Farms, Norton Commons, Poplar Woods, Shakes Run and Locust Creek. He is past president of the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville (BIA) and producer of Homearama, and has participated in the event for 43 years. Since the first Homearama was held in Hurstbourne in 1975, he has witnessed myriad changes in the home building industry and the event itself. Many Louisville homes today are more informal than in years past. Another difference is the growing interest in single-floor plans with a basement. “Trends really depend on the age group,” he says. “Empty nesters or soon to be empty nesters may prefer a ranch with a basement. But, some younger families are also choosing that thinking they will be in the same home for quite some time.” Another trend that seems to span the ages of homeowners is that of an open floor plan in which the family room and kitchen flow together as opposed to formerly distinct and defined spaces. Keeping up with the nuances of interior design can be head-spinning. “In design and décor, everything goes,” says Lyons. “It used to be that a modern house was totally modern, a traditional house was completely traditional and an eclectic house exactly that. But now we’re seeing the mixing of designs, such as ultra modern furniture with antique pieces.” Advances in electronics, ranging from audio visual to security, have had a major impact on home building, sometimes requiring intricate planning. It wasn’t so long ago that wiring for a television and telephone were about the extent of “modern” electronics, Lyons recalls, unlike today’s homes in which it’s important to be aware of what types of wiring will be necessary for various electronics. “In the ’70s, we just made space for a furnace and fireplace,” he says. “But now, because of engineered floors and roof systems, it takes a lot more planning to make all of that work. And the old, standard way of plumbing was simple whereas today it’s much more complicated because of all the types of plumbing fixtures, like the varying styles of tubs.” Shows on networks like HGTV are a mixed bag for Lyons and his colleagues.

programs have educated viewers about new products and have piqued their interest in styles and techniques. But, on the flip side, the shows usually don’t represent the complexities or full costs of a project, leading viewers to have false expectations and an unrealistic idea of what they will encounter in a similar situation. Homearama, on the other hand, is an exciting version of a reality show. Visitors are able to talk to builders about behind the scenes issues while they also will see many of the design touches Lyons considers to be popular headliners. He references the use of hardwood and luxury vinyl taking the place of carpet and the interest in reclaimed and repurposed products. In the Old European-influenced Homearama home that he built for designer Jonathan Reyes of JLR Designs, he used reclaimed fence posts from a horse farm and repurposed four sets of antique Egyptian doors. Wallpaper seems to be a cyclical thing. It fell into disfavor for several years but is making a big comeback. Lyons even has it on the ceilings in his Homearama house. “I think there are a lot of reasons why Homearama is so successful every year,” he says. “In Louisville, we have always had a real mix of quality custom builders who have wanted to display their work, and people have responded to that. No matter what someone is looking for in a home, they can find it at Homearama, where we will help them visualize what their new home or remodel could look like.

“Louisville has always been an affordable housing market, relatively speaking,” he continues. “Homearama became a beneficiary of that – allowing anyone to come and have a dream. It’s become a summer destination for Louisville residents. It’s not on their bucket list; it’s a ‘have-to’ item. We see many people come back year after year, and some of their kids are now coming on their own. Homearama provides inspiration, from architecture to interior design, and can really jump start the creative process for people who are interested in building or buying a home.” The Homearama house Lyons built is the perfect example of why there are so many return visitors to the event. People can’t get enough of the extraordinary details that unfold from room to room. Lyons and Reyes are ready to greet their visitors with wow factors such as a 500pound iron door; a kitchen/dining area that that has a magenta, blue and white color scheme and a blend of ultra-modern pieces with 16th century furniture and accessories; and a lower-level gym complete with a ballet barre. And don’t forget that wallpaper resurgence: The foyer has cork wallpaper on the walls and grasscloth on the ceiling. An Old English pattern paper dresses up the walls in the master bedroom. There are plenty of other surprises, too. Under the staircase is a bookcase that encloses a secret room. Well, it was a secret until now. VT 33


BUILDING CHANGE YouthBuild and partners bring hope and help to kids across our city By Graham Pilotte

ducation, leadership and job training are game-changers for youth across Louisville. For some low-income young people, a chance to learn can quickly become a chance to change their lives. It’s a scenario that Lynn Rippy, the president and CEO of YouthBuild Louisville, knows very well. “For young people – especially young people who have grown up in severe poverty – it can be difficult for them to believe things can be better,” Rippy says. “But with the level of success and love they receive through us, they start trusting people differently and trusting their own abilities. Their ideas of the future are very different than what they had coming into the program. “YouthBuild started in Harlem about 40 years ago as a result of a social worker seeing the same kids on the side of the street every day,” Rippy explains. “Everything started as a result of this woman wanting to make sure this group of young men reached their full potential. She worked with them to develop everything they needed in their lives to move forward.” Today, YouthBuild is working in 240 sites across the United States and 21 other countries,

helping low-income young people across the world meet significant life goals from graduating college to having careers. “Our young people in Louisville have really strong potential for success in life,” Rippy says. “They’re ready for change. They want to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and provide leadership to their families.” The organization helps young people establish their independence. “We make sure that kids don’t take their barriers with them, whether that’s housing, daycare, legal issues or food,” Rippy explains. With the help of YouthBuild, these students are setting their lives on track to achieve their long-term goals. “For me, the secret sauce is the service,” Rippy explains. “Our kids give back 450 hours each year they’re in the program, which really grounds them to the community and helps them understand their responsibilities.” This work reaches into almost every neighborhood in Louisville and ranges from building wheelchair ramps to planting trees. Through the (Building Industry Association of Louisville) Charitable Foundation and Kosair Charities, YouthBuild students also build dream playhouses for kids in need across the city.

One young man described us this year as ‘people who don’t have to love me; they just want to love me.’ This is change. — Lynn Rippy

YouthBuild students also take on additional mentorship, career and family opportunities, and some even have the chance to study abroad. “We just took six young people and two adults to Versailles, France, to study in the King’s Garden there. And we were able to go into some of the lower-income neighborhoods in Paris and see how (they’re) similar to their own experiences,” Rippy says. “They have this international travel that’s so life-changing.” With their futures in mind, YouthBuild Louisville offers two career tracks – construction and nursing – so kids can work toward certifications and build careers in those fields. “It’s the partnerships we have, like the one with the Building Industry Association of Louisville (BIA), that have allowed us to grow and serve more young people,” Rippy says. “It’s incredible to be part of such an impactful organization that literally changes the lives of these students,” says Annie Fultz Dutton, a member of the YouthBuild board and vice president of government affairs at the BIA. “YouthBuild students get career and 36

W Fourth of Partyline

July Fun

By Carla Sue Broecker

hen Mary Margaret Phelps decides to give a party, you can count on it being a doozy and lots of fun. “Back in the day” when she and her late husband, former Liberty Bank President Bill Joe Phelps, were entertaining together, he greeted guests, fixed drinks and got out of Mary Margaret’s way. He is sorely missed by all, but the parties are just as great as ever, and he is well remembered. So, when the phone rings in the latter part of June, lucky friends get an invitation from M.M., as she is called, to come to her house off Lime Kiln Lane for the Fourth of July. That has always been her favorite holiday to celebrate with friends for many years. Her terraced backyard is beautifully laid out with its elevated pool, charming pool house, lush flower gardens, terrace and trees to sit under and chat with friends galore. It looks like the Garden of Eden. There is even an enormous floating swan for kids to ride in the pool. Friends sit and sip while the well-known and friendly staff of the Silver Spoon see to it that everyone is comfortable and has a libation in hand. M.M.’s handsome and charming son, Bill, even comes in from his large, rustic lodgehome down on Cumberland Lake in western Kentucky. He went down there years ago for the fun of it, fell in love with the place and lives there year round with his dogs. He has created a bed and breakfast and is always “full up.” His sister Melanie and her husband, Steve McCool, live here and keep track of Mary Margaret. Early arriving guests and those that came a little later were treated to wonderful, bite-sized crab cakes garnished with tartar sauce. Then there were delicious deep-fried, panko-breaded shrimp with an interesting pesto dipping sauce. But the hit of all well-done Louisville parties was the lovely, round, sliced tomato sandwiches on white bread garnished with Duke’s mayonnaise if you please. It was almost like a wedding reception. Nobody had to ring the dinner bell twice. Using his father’s prized recipe, Bill Phelps had been grilling pork shoulders all day long. It was the first thing you could smell upon arrival at the party. The Silver Spoon pulled the pork and slathered it with

the homemade sauce. Also on the table was delicious salmon with cucumber sauce, a mountain of fresh tomatoes – both red and yellow – and other veggies, too, but also bacon-garnished baked beans, pasta alfredo salad and fruit salad. Dessert was everything from macarons to lemon bars to various other “bars” that featured chocolate chips. Rosemary and Jimmy Boone, Janet Falk, Barbara Partlow, Adeline and Bill Hoagland, Kay Matton, Ann Early and Bob Southerland, Kathy and Joe Artebury, Jean Boland and Wayne Garvey, Louise Horine, Shirley Rutledge, Marilyn Taylor and Liz Todd, were among the overjoyed and overfed. And they all went home about the time the first firework boomed on the horizon. VT

‘Izzy’ Elizabeth Nalley in Meditation with Monarchs.

Guy Genoud and Robert Bleifer at Brasserie Provence Farm to Frazier.


hat else do you do super early on a Saturday morning besides sleep in? The idea of Meditation with Monarchs held at Idlewild Butterfly Farm made perfect sense to me. Especially when it’s led by Elizabeth Nalley, better known as Izzy. Get ready for her credentials: “I have a bachelor’s in exercise science, a bachelor’s in public health education, an associate’s in business and a minor in wellness coaching, which uses a lot of positive psychology, so that was basically like an associate’s degree. I (also) completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training,” Izzy said. When asked what inspired the meditation with the Monarch butterflies, Izzy replied, “I came to Idlewild because my daughter loves bugs. I saw it on TV and knew we had to go there. Soon after that, I started the meditation series with the butterflies.” Peaceful and serene is how you feel after this meditation experience. Seated outdoors in an enclosed area that reminds you of a greenhouse, you are surrounded by lavender, which the butterflies are drawn to, along with wildflowers and a plethora of monarchs you just wish will land on you somewhere for good luck. “Close your eyes and listen; you can hear the wings flutter around us,” Izzy noted. Izzy also has a yoga business, Fig Leaf Yoga & Fitness, that keeps her moving like a butterfly. Going from one blossom to another, she has a spiritual awareness that seems to pollinate joy. Speaking of joy, that’s exactly what I found at the Kentucky Supper Series, Farm to Frazier:

Kentucky by Way of France, an evening with Guy Genoud, owner of Brasserie Provence. This special dinner was held at the Frazier History Museum with a lively conversation between Guy Genoud and Robert Bleifer, executive chef and vice president of culinary at the Food Network. As we sat down to dinner, the two gastronomic aficionados proceeded to explore the intricacies of what Farm to Frazier really meant. “Thanks to the passion and dedication of our team, Brasserie Provence offers Louisville a taste of the south of France. All of our dishes include the freshest ingredients and are cooked to order,” Genoud stated. Chef Patrick Gosden added: “I’ve been cooking for 20 years and have worked all around the city. I love what I do and hanging out with Guy Genoud every day.” President and CEO of Frazier History Museum Penny Peavler introduced the evening with words of gratitude for all the sponsors and supporters who made the dinner possible. Concluding the evening, Peavler invited guests to attend the next Farm to Frazier: Kentucky by Way of Ireland with Michael Reidy, owner of the Irish Rover on July 26. You can experience how cooking shapes our world at this Kentucky Supper Series that is guaranteed to make you swoon. I’m already building an (Irish) appetite for this one. VT

Louisville-based Delta Dental of Kentucky recently announced the acquisition of the only American Dental Association (ADA) endorsed mouthguard available to the retail market. Purchased on June 26, 2018, GAME ON Mouthguards, formerly known as CustMBite, is a product wholly owned by Delta Dental of Kentucky’s for-profit subsidiary, Dental Choice Holdings LLC.


Lux Row Distillers, one of Bardstown’s newest distilleries, is the latest Kentucky Distillers’ Association member to join the Kentucky Bourbon Trail experience, becoming the 13th stop on the world-famous journey that showcases the state’s signature spirit. The announcement comes as the popular tourist attraction, created in 1999 by the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, continues to expand across the Commonwealth with distillery destinations hosting more than one million visits for the second year in a row in 2017.

“The Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour offers a variety unique and authentic experiences to visitors,” KDA President Eric Gregory said. “Lux Row has made a tremendous investment in an exceptional facility that beautifully showcases the timeless values and rich tradition of Kentucky bourbon.” Lux Row opened its doors to the public with a lively ribbon-cutting ceremony in April, which featured Kentucky United Pipes and Drums marching band and hosted more than 450 employees and invited guests from around the world. Located at 1 Lux Row, the company is one of six KDA member distilleries in Nelson County, including Heaven Hill, Willett, Bardstown Bourbon Company, Preservation Distillery and Jim Beam’s Booker Noe Distillery. The county seat is Bardstown – the “Bourbon Capital of the World.” “We are thrilled and extremely proud to be a part of the iconic Kentucky Bourbon Trail and to welcome visitors from all over the world to tour our distillery and experience our award-winning bourbon brands,” said Donn Lux, chairman and CEO of Luxco. “The 48

GAME ON received the ADA endorsement due to the mouthguard’s superior, state of the art, shock absorbent advancements. Unlike traditional plastic mouthguards made of ethylene vinyl acetate, GAME ON is comprised of VistaMaxx material which creates 40 to 100 percent more shock absorbency than other available mouthguards. GAME ON also provides superior fit and comfort – allowing seamless wear for users. GAME ON owns the user patent for VistaMaxx for athletic mouthguards, dental occlusal trays and whitening trays. Dentist and CustMBite founder Dr. Monroe Elkin began developing the mouthguards bourbon community has been incredibly welcoming of our family into theirs and we feel right at home here in Bardstown.” Kentucky bourbon is one of the Commonwealth’s most historic and treasured industries, a booming $8.5 billion economic engine that generates as many as 17,500 jobs with an annual payroll topping $800 million, pouring $825 million into tax coffers each year. With 6.7 million barrels of bourbon currently aging across the state, the Kentucky Bourbon industry is in the middle of a $1.2 billion building boom with companies investing in production and facility expansions as well as state-of-the-art visitor experiences. The KDA created the trademark tour to give visitors an intimate, educational look behind America’s only native spirit at Kentucky’s finest distilleries. The KBT Craft Tour, featuring the state’s micro distilleries, launched in 2012 as the first of its kind in the country. Now with an all-time high of 13 participating distilleries, other KBT members are: Angel’s Envy, Louisville; Bulleit’s Stitzel-Weller Distillery, Louisville; Four Roses, Lawrenceburg and Cox’s Creek; Heaven Hill in Bardstown and its Evan Williams Bourbon Experience,

with VistaMaxx in 2004. Dr. Elkin will serve as a consultant with GAME ON and will continue to work on new and similarly progressive technology. Chris Redman, former NFL and University of Louisville quarterback, will be employed by GAME ON as the business development manager. Beginning this fall, GAME ON Mouthguard is also intended to become the official mouthguard for University of Louisville and University of Kentucky athletic programs. GAME ON will utilize local companies for packaging and fulfillment needs, contributing to the Louisville community by providing future jobs and technological advancements.

pets of the week Meet Tia the Extraordinary! This petite, three-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix was transferred to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter, ready to find her forever home. She arrived in Louisville full of energy and tail wags! However, the veterinarian at KHS quickly discovered that Tia had an infection in her eye and needed surgery right away. The infection was so deep that Tia, unfortunately, had to have her eye removed. Proving to be an overcomer, Tia hasn’t let her missing eye keep her from going on new adventures! Could you be the one she’s looking for? Tia is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Meet Tia today at the Hikes Point Feeders Supply, 3079 Breckenridge Lane. For more on Tia or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or Meet the gorgeous Mariah! This girl is twelve years young and prides herself on her beautiful, soft fur and stunning eyes. You may wonder why a senior kitty like her was brought to the Kentucky Humane Society, and it was because she just couldn’t adjust to the small children in the home. Mariah is a laid-back gal, so she would be happiest in a quiet home without other cats or kids to stress her out. Her previous owner described her as pretty independent and said she will ask for attention when she wants it, so she doesn’t need constant affection. Mariah is also front-declawed so she would prefer to just lounge about inside instead of braving the outdoors. Could she be the one for you? Mariah is already spayed, micro-chipped and upto-date on vaccinations. Adopt love today! You can visit Mariah at our East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane. For more on Mariah or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or For more on any of our adoptable pets, please call 502.366.3355 or visit 53
