It’s easy to think back to moments or years during which you wish you would have realized how good things were. Let’s start appreciating our lives a bit more right now, by noticing and making intentional changes. What are some small things you could change right now to make life better?

• Remove any clutter inside your front door so you have a pretty entrance and exit. • Organize your spring clothing, so you can find something you like to wear. • Plan an outing to somewhere in the area. See page 12 for ideas. Make a list of things you are tolerating-surviving-walking around and make a plan to change those things. It will make each day a little better, and we will work on bigger changes later. — Anita Oldham, Editor-in-Chief Share ideas about people and places we should cover in our print magazine, online at TodaysTransitionsNow.com, and in our social media.

SIX SPECIAL PLACES IN KENTUCKIANA By Carrie Vittitoe | Photos submitted

W

ith the COVID-19 vaccine in play, we’re all hoping to spend more time out and about in 2021. Fortunately for us, there are numerous spots in Kentuckiana that promise to stimulate our brains, offer feasts for our eyes, or help us engage in nature. PAGE 14 >>

LIFESTYLE SIX SPECIAL PLACES

“GREAT KENTUCKIANS” IN THE “COOL KENTUCKY” EXHIBIT, FRAZIER HISTORY MUSEUM The “Cool Kentucky” exhibit is exactly what it sounds like: information about cool geologic features, cool products, and people. “It spans all areas of interest; it gives you a little taste of a lot of different parts about the history and culture of Kentucky,” curator Amanda Briede says. One special feature of the exhibit is called “Great Kentuckians,” and it is full of names you probably haven’t heard or don’t know much about if you have heard them. For example, John Scopes, who was born in Paducah, was an educator who became the defendant in the 1925 Monkey Trial in Tennessee after being fined for teaching evolution. Another Great Kentuckian in the exhibit is Louisvillian Saint Elmo Brady, who in 1916 became the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry and went on to develop curricula for historically black colleges. “We really wanted to focus on diversity, and we had a really huge team of people working in all different departments in the museum who would help contribute,” Amanda says.

BERNHEIM ARBORETUM AND RESEARCH FOREST GIANTS After being cooped up, a trek out to Bernheim Forest may be the perfect way to spend the day. With 16,000 acres, Bernheim provides ample space to socially distance and escape the confines of our homes. With life still being fairly chaotic, marketing and communications manager Amy Landon says, “Nature can be healing, and Bernheim offers some peace.” For a touch of whimsy, check out the “Forest Giants,” an exhibit that was completed in 2019 by Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Each of the giants was created using recycled materials, including wooden pallets, and discarded Louisville Slugger bats. Not only does the exhibit immerse visitors in nature, Amy says it is a reminder to “reconsider your trash [because] recycling can be a beautiful thing.” The three giants are located at different points at Bernheim and offer a bit of a treasure hunt for visitors who want to see them. Individuals who like to walk and don’t have mobility issues can start at the visitor’s center and take a trek that is about two miles out and back.

“ISABELLE DE BORCHGRAVE: FASHIONING ART FROM PAPER,” SPEED ART MUSEUM Many people had a lot of downtime in 2020; so much downtime that they began taking up craft projects. The Speed Art Museum’s exhibit “Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper,” which will run until August 22, takes the idea of crafting with paper, glue, and paint to a mind-blowing level. Curator Erika Holmquist-Wall says Isabelle de Borchgrave was inspired by historic costumes during a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “She was interested in trying to recreate them out of paper and make them come to life,” she says. “Her work brings together the simplest and humblest of materials. She literally just uses rolls of craft paper to create these incredible confections.” While the interpretive text and labels in the exhibit are the same no matter which city it travels to, curators can make the exhibit unique to each institution. “For example, there’s a whole section on the Medici family from Renaissance Florence. We’re looking at how do you build a family tree or timeline of how these people are related to each other. So there’s flexibility there to add additional layers of interpretation for our audience,” Erika says.

THE FALLS OF THE OHIO STATE PARK There is an ancient sea floor that sits on the banks of the Ohio River in Clarksville, Indiana. At some 390 million-years-old, the fossil beds at The Falls of the Ohio State Park “are the largest exposed Devonian fossil bed in the western hemisphere,” according to assistant property manager Dale Brown. Originally the beds were located 20 degrees south of the equator in a shallow ocean, but Dale says continental drift moved the limestone deposits some 4,000 miles north from its original latitude. There is evidence of all kinds of sea creatures that once called this ocean home at The Falls of the Ohio, including brachiopods, clams, crinoids, and trilobites. “At least 600 species of fossils have been documented at the Falls and its surroundings,” Dale says. The Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center, through the support of The Falls of the Ohio Foundation, was able to renovate with upgraded technology to allow individuals with limited mobility to “see” the falls even if they can’t navigate the paved disability ramp that leads to the fossil beds. The Falls offers opportunities to see birds and beautiful scenic views of the river. Visiting the area can feel meditative in part because you’re surrounded by so much geologic time.

YEW DELL BOTANICAL GARDENS Yew Dell Botanical Gardens in Crestwood, Kentucky has a garden adoption program perfect for individuals who want to get outside, be around a few other people, and have a desire to learn about gardens. “We have a wonderful group of volunteers who adopt gardens at Yew Dell and maintain them throughout the year. They’re most active from March to October, and they work very closely with our garden and arboretum manager,” Yew Dell marketing and PR manager Lindsay Duncan says. People who love to learn find this program to be one that fulfills them both socially and intellectually. The trial and evaluation gardens at Yew Dell is just one fascinating space that needs to be adopted at Yew Dell. “We don’t only have plants in our collection like a museum would have works of art. We also create plants here; we propagate them and sell them through our online plant market,” director of development and external relations Aimee Conrad-Hill says. The spring Yew Dell calendar of events includes informative virtual workshops on bonsai, body movement while gardening, and pruning with more being added each month.

NORTHEAST REGIONAL LIBRARY Due to COVID-19, all Louisville Free Public Library branches were closed for a time in the spring of 2020 and then reopened for curbside pickup and technology appointments. On March 26, 2021, the library will begin offering inperson “Grab and Go” access to library materials. This will allow book lovers to return to the Northeast Regional branch which was designed with light, people, and books in mind. One of its most unique features is its river of books which visitors can walk up and down; this design was intentional according to communications director Paul Burns. “One of the goals [was] to put books front and center,” he says. Another feature of the Northeast branch is the Maker Pavilion, which consists of a demonstration kitchen, an audio/visual lab, and the maker lab. “The library is all about learning,” Paul says. Patrons regularly visited the maker lab where they could craft, sew, and design. “It was definitely a lively and well-utilized space in the library,” says Paul. For those not ready to return inperson, the library will continue to offer curbside pickup, and assistance with technology issues and questions. The technology appointments can be made by calling 502.574.1611. Today’s Transitions / Spring 2021 15


LIFESTYLE A DAY IN HIS LIFE

By Tonilyn Hornung | Photo by Melissa Donald

He Lives by the “If You Don’t Move, You Rust” Motto

B

ill Dennis says he feels fortunate that he was able to work in two distinctive fields that he enjoyed. For 22 years, Bill worked for the Western Electric Company. “I loved it because I was working with machines and engineers,” Bill says. “I was lucky enough to work on prototypes, and that was great.” When Western Electric closed, he moved on to a job at Home Depot, where he “ran a delivery department for close to 10 years.” He loved that job, too, and now Bill is finding many reasons to love his retirement. A native of Massachusetts, Bill and his wife Jo-Anne moved to Louisville to be closer to their son and daughter, who live locally, and their two grandchildren. The Dennises are also enjoying their move to Louisville because of all the city does to keep them out and active. “We’ve always been into walking and going places,” Bill says. This is why he and his wife are taking advantage of Louisville’s wonderful outdoor spaces. “We go to all the parks that are around here, which is great!” Bill says. In order to explore more of the great outdoors, the couple invested in a pair of electric bicycles. An electric bike works the same as a regular bicycle, except that it makes obstacles like hills more manageable. You can also go longer distances without getting tired. “You still have to pedal, but it’s like having an extra jolt,” Bill says. They’ve ridden their bikes several times at Waterfront Park, and they’re planning to ride most of the bike trails in the Louisville Loop. Along with biking, Bill is always ready for a family outing or a household project to keep life fun and interesting, “My wife and I move around. It’s like the old saying, ‘If you don’t move, you can rust.’”

AROUND 6AM: UP WITH COFFEE AND THE ANIMALS After making coffee for himself and his wife, Bill feeds the pets: two small dogs and two cats, and catches up on the news. “Everyday Jo-Anne and I take the dogs for a walk. Then if we have something to do, we take off and do it.” MIDDAY: PROJECTS & CARS (IN A GARAGE!) Bill works on projects around the house, but he also loves to work on cars, and always has. “I never had a garage, so Jo-Anne and I planned ahead so we could do some of the 16 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

things we always wanted to do in our retirement. Now, I have a garage, and I can work on my cars. I always wanted a certain car, and I recently got it. It’s a 1969 Camaro convertible. That’s my next project, working on that car.” 7PM: GAMES ON SOME NIGHTS Bill loves to play games with his family, including two grandkids — a 10-yearold granddaughter and a 7-year-old grandson. “I’m into cards, and I’ve taught the adult kids how to play, so we play cribbage. You have so many things that you have to remember in

that card game, and one of the hardest things is the math. It can get kind of wild when everyone is talking back and forth, but it’s a real fun game to play.” 10PM: BED, UNLESS WE ARE WATCHING A REALLY GOOD SHOW Bill and Jo-Anne go to bed around 10pm unless they are binge-watching a series on Netflix. “You know, you get caught up. Jo-Anne loves the Downton Abbey-type series and the detectivetype series. I’m in the middle of The Expanse — it’s a sci-fi series that’s really good.”

LIFESTYLE IT’S HECK GETTING OLD

DON’T HIDE YOUR SMILE Is your smile looking less brilliant? As you age, teeth can become discolored for many reasons. Nerve damage to a tooth, staining from drinks such as coffee and tea, as well as the aftereffects of a tooth restoration can cause discoloration. In some cases, stains result from taking antibiotics or chemo drugs. While discolored teeth can be a vanity issue, there are no real health concerns related directly to tooth discoloration, says Dr. Rachel Davis of Davis Dental Center. There are several ways to treat the unsightly problem. Before you begin any whitening plan, visit your dentist to ensure there are no underlying issues, such as decay, that could be exacerbated by the whitening process. “We want to know you have a healthy mouth before we whiten,” Dr. Davis says.

By Tami Pyles

SOLUTION #1 TEMPORARY WHITENING There are three options for semi-permanent whitening. First, over-the-counter whitening strips offer a quick-fix to remove surface stains but yield shortterm results. Second, visit your dentist for in-office whitening trays. Similar to whitening strips, the trays are generally more effective and results can last longer. Finally, there are whitening processes such as Zoom or Kor Whitening that require both in-office and athome steps. They can be highly effective and offer long-term results. Dr. Davis says there is a big commitment of both time and money, especially for the Kor Whitening process, and you have to stick to the treatment plan and its required maintenance steps. SOLUTION #2 PERMANENT WHITENING Crowns, veneers, or bonding offer a permanent whitening solution. These in-office procedures will produce results that last. They are more expensive and invasive, requiring up to four office visits to complete. While these options offer a more permanent solution, Dr. Davis says that basic upkeep, like visiting your dentist every six months and using fluoride, are important to maintain newly whitened teeth.

LIFESTYLE WHAT I KNOW NOW

By Lucy M. Pritchett | Illustration by Dan Kisner

How she’s helping other agents, has her own lending library, and the challenges she has faced.

S

andy Gulick is founder and partner in Kentucky Select Properties. She earned her real estate license in 1985. Born in Shanghai, China, she was raised in Louisville and has raised her son and daughter here. She is a well-known patron of Louisville’s great array of restaurants, enjoys time with her three grandsons, and loves the view of the Ohio River from her porch. WHAT SKILLS DO YOU HAVE THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO YOUR SUCCESS AS A REALTOR? I like people, I'm very honest, I have some mathematical skills, and I am very flexible. I took a vocational test years ago, and I scored highly on being an elected public official, an IRS agent, or real estate agent. I think I picked the right one. WHAT DRIVES YOU NOW? I enjoy my clients and keeping up-to-date with new listings and the Louisville market. I've had a wonderful career. IN ADDITION TO SELLING AND BUYING HOUSES (SHE’S LIVED IN NINE SINCE 1975), WHAT DO YOU ENJOY? Buying art and jewelry. My art collection is very colorful. I'll buy anything that has red in it, and I am supportive of local artists. WHAT WILL BE YOUR LEGACY? My son and daughter, Jay and Lizzie, my grandkids Oliver, Dylan, and Solomon, and my wonderful real estate company. I've met so many great people as clients, and many have become friends. WHAT AUTHORS DO YOU ENJOY? I have many favorite authors — Jodi Picoult, Nora Roberts, Robyn Carr, Lisa Jackson, and Dorothea Benton Frank. I keep some of my books on a little bookshelf in the garage — I have a space there with a rug and chairs — and it’s considered a lending library for the neighbors. I like to support authors by buying real books made of paper. SOMETHING YOU'VE LEARNED THE HARD WAY? Not everyone is honest. I always try to be honest, and some people just aren't. That's been hard for me to grab onto. It's to their disservice to lie as they always get found out anyway. WHAT'S THE STRANGEST FOOD YOU'VE EVER EATEN? I don't do strange food. I've never eaten an egg that looked like an egg. There's just something that is gross about eggs. I do love souffles, but in those, an egg does not look like an egg. 20 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHAT'S A PERSONAL CHALLENGE YOU'VE OVERCOME? Continuing to work with so many health issues. I suffered with undiagnosed Cushing's disease for seven years. I also had five eye surgeries in one year and couldn't drive at night. Clients would come to my house to sign contracts. People really helped me out. ANY THOUGHTS ON RETIREMENT? Because I own the company I don't have to retire. Now I am wanting to help other agents and have started co-listing in the last year or so to help them get to know more people. WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED ABOUT YOURSELF DURING COVID-19? That I miss my friends. I had three ceiling heaters installed on my porch so I could sit out there and visit with people. I also had a few friends who would still eat inside restaurants with me when it was too cold to eat outside.

LIFESTYLE I LOVE MY...

A Vessel of Memories

“WHEN I SEE THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE, IT REMINDS ME OF THESE STRONG WOMEN, AND IT CONNECTS US THROUGH TIME.”

L

ike many of the people I interview for this “I love my…” series, Honi Goldman’s first inclination was to focus either on the passion she feels for her work or on a fundamental value that guides her life. However, when pressed to select a specific item that she treasures, the decision was an easy one. “I love my great-grandmother’s vase. It reminds me of the strong women in my family, their experiences, and our history,” Honi says. In the early 1900s, Great-Grandmother Minnie and her husband Saul lived in a downtown Louisville home where the vase was a focal point in the living room. Stories passed through the family tell of Minnie riding in a carriage, going to visit with relatives, and playing cards on Sunday afternoons. Upon Minnie’s death, the vase made its way to Honi’s grandmother Dorothy, who loved to tell Honi stories about her daughters: Honi’s aunt and her mother Miriam. “When I see this beautiful piece, it reminds me of these strong women, and it connects us through time,” Honi says. The vase held a place of prominence in Honi’s home until Halloween night about four years ago. Her dogs Archie and Alice were confined to the kitchen so they wouldn’t bark and

22 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

scare trick-or-treaters. Upon hearing the doorbell, Archie, who Honi calls her secret service dog, was desperate to get to the door and protect her. Using all 90 pounds of his weight, he broke out of the kitchen and bolted through the living room, where he toppled the vase. Honi gathered the pieces that night and put them in a box, determined to find a way to put the vase back together again. After much research, she learned of a Japanese art form called Kintsugi that could be used to reassemble her treasured vase. Last year she finally found a man in Delaware who did such work. “He asked that I send all the fragments, even those as small as a grain of rice,” Honi says. When thinking about the vase and its long history, Honi considers the Passover tradition of breaking the matzah bread and pulling of one small piece. That piece would be hidden, and the kids would go to find it in hopes of a fun reward. “But they only got the reward if the piece could be matched again to the original,” Honi says. “And that’s the lesson in this for me: what was broken can be made whole again.” One day when Honi passes the vase along, the story of its Halloween misadventure and subsequent rebirth will become another part of the family lore.

LIFESTYLE EMOTIONS

MISSING SOMETHING? EVERYONE FEELS LEFT OUT SOMETIMES — HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO By Tonilyn Hornung

24 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com


A

s we mature, our emotions grow and change with us. We develop the tools to communicate succinctly instead of having that ginormous meltdown in the toy aisle at Target. Even as adults, though, there are some feelings that can still hold the same sting as they did in our childhood — like feeling left out. However, with some sage guidance and helpful tips, we can learn to move through these feelings to a more positive and inclusive space. “I think everyone probably feels left out at some point in their lives,” says the Rev. Ron Loughry, who upon his retirement celebrated 50 years of service focusing on community ministries in the area. “These ideas of isolation and exclusion have always been,” Ron says. He goes on to say factors like “ill health, loss of family or friends, and even retirement can all lead to feelings of isolation.” Maybe you remember feeling excluded on the playground as a child or feel like family isn’t keeping you up-to-date on their outings. Feeling left out is an emotion that stays with us. Sally Connolly, licensed marriage and family therapist and owner of Couples Counseling of Louisville, says, “We are all born with the desire to be liked and included.” This desire to be included is a basic human instinct and the reason this urge can come on strong. This is why when you feel unaccepted by a particular friend or peer group, emotions like frustration and hurt can rise to the surface. Sally says, “Sadness, disappointment, hurt, lowered self-esteem, and thoughts of inadequacy that can start with, ‘What is wrong with me?’” are all possible emotional responses to the powerful feelings of being left out. With this large Pandora’s Box of emotions opened, what can you do when experiencing feelings of exclusion? A first step is to “make sure that what you think is real is really real,” Sally says. She says that many of us “mind read” and in doing so can be off-base in our assumptions. “How many times have I forgotten to add someone to an email invitation without meaning to do that?” she asks. Mistakes are a common occurrence in any relationship, so set up a time to have a check-in with friends or family. One way to touch base is to “invite one or two members from the group for coffee or lunch and see if there’s a connection still there,” Sally proposes. You can use a phone call or video conference to achieve the same result and then “choose to bring it up or not.” If a conversation becomes your path, both Sally and Ron suggest using “I” statements. “Concentrate on using language like, ‘I feel excluded when…,’” Ron says. The use of these statements keeps the focus on your experience and the blame away from the listener. Once you’ve talked through the situation, you might decide a new, emotionally healthy social circle is for you. Sally says, “Look for natural ways of finding friends.” This can be trying out safe group activities you enjoy like hiking or online book clubs. Ron also suggests creating new hobbies or connecting with others through volunteer work. “If a person is part of a faith community, that can sometimes provide some connection, too,” he says. During challenging emotional times, “Finding ways to nurture a healthy sense of self is important,” Ron says. He encourages checking out local groups such as Highland Community Ministries or the Louisville Public Library because both offer services, information, and a conduit to social connection. Sally says it’s alright to acknowledge your feelings of grief when they come up, but “don’t spend too much time there.” When you feel ready, you have the power to create a more optimistic outlook for yourself, and you can start by finding “two or three positive memories or statements and focus on them.” And then Sally encourages, “get busy and do something different.”

“WE ARE ALL BORN WITH THE DESIRE TO BE LIKED AND INCLUDED.”

PASSIONS FOLLOWING PASSIONS

WHEN IT’S WITH PURPOSE, IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE WORK Why is Marita Willis working so hard? “I just think that’s part of my spiritual gift,” says Marita, 65, chief empowerment officer of Hope Collaborative, a community development program serving immigrant children and their families. “The base we serve is an eclectic group of refugees. When you put a purpose on it, it doesn’t feel like work.” Marita and her husband of 44 years, Bob, grew up “in the Park Hill housing projects. We both had single parents. I didn’t know it was a housing project the way we look at it today. I did not identify as poor. My mother never had a car. People gave to us. People would show up at our door with food, not knowing we didn’t have food. “I grew up at the Cabbage Patch [a recreation and development program for youth],” she says. “Everything started out with prayer.” Marita is heavily involved in the community. She’s on the board of the Louisville Water Company, is chair of MSD, and serves on the Kentucky Derby Festival Executive Board, where she was recently chair of the festival. She’s also on the boards of the Norton Foundation and the Nativity Academy at St. Boniface. “I love Louisville,” she says. “I love this community. We are a giving community. If all of us take an opportunity to give back to the village, we can change it. We are a really divided community, and we don’t talk about it. Now we will be forced to talk about that. What changes are we going to make? Is it going to be real change or window dressing?” Marita and her husband have suffered the loss of both of their children. Their son Rashawn died at age sixteen in the flood of 1997. Their daughter RaTonya, who had Sickle Cell disease, passed just three years ago. Both volunteered and mentored. “Rashawn gave back a lot,” Marita says. He went to Catholic school, and she says he insisted she go to PTA meetings. “‘There are others that you could stand in for,’ he said. ‘If not you, then who?’ That drives me today.” She feels like being involved has made Louisville her classroom. As chair of the Kentucky Derby Festival, Marita says it was “a phenomenal experience when I rode down the street for the parade. As a child, we used to walk down to the parade. That was our Derby. The parade would resonate with me. My grandchildren and son-in-law rode with me. When we got down Broadway, the people who knew me from Park Hill, they were screaming and yelling, ‘Rita! I was looking for you! I’m so happy for you!,’ I couldn’t stop crying. ‘Honey’ — my grandkids call me Honey — ‘what are you crying about?’ It was amazing. People care. They came out in full force. “I learned so much by being the chair. Our voice matters. We need to be present. Volunteering is mentally and physically good for your health. I’ve learned in the pandemic that if you are productive, you don’t have to be busy. You are getting things done, not just doing a task. It gives me something to look forward to. People think you need a lot of this and that. You need yourself and willingness to do it.” 30 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

“WHEN YOU PUT A PURPOSE ON IT, IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE WORK.” — MARITA WILLIS


FROM POLICE WORK — TO LAW — TO PEACE CORPS — TO TEACHING Lonnie Cooper of Jeffersonville, Indiana, has had several careers. “My wife won’t let me retire,” quips Lonnie, 70, whose wife is Clark County Circuit Court Judge Vicki Carmichael. But kidding aside, Lonnie loves what he does. He has worked in law enforcement for 20 years, been an attorney for 25 years, and now teaches criminal justice and legal studies at Ivy Tech Community College. “I get paid for doing things that bring me so much joy,” he said. “What I would not do is get me a rocking chair on the front porch or get up at noon every day.” When he was 42, Lonnie retired from police work in drug enforcement — where he went after doctors, pharmacists, and pharmaceutical companies — and got a law degree from the University of Mississippi because “he always enjoyed the legal side of his cases,” he said. He moved back to Southern Indiana and began working as an attorney. He also holds a master’s in public administration from the University of Louisville. “I was the only actively practicing civil rights attorney in Southern Indiana in the mid ’90s,” Lonnie says. “I took on a case for a young black man working for Clarksville. They would hire black people in only two jobs — cutting grass or working on the back of a garbage truck, and Dennis Johnson had done both of those. He was a corpsman in the Navy and applied to be a fireman. The fire chief asked him, ‘Dennis, wouldn’t you feel uncomfortable being the only black person in the fire department?’” Lonnie won the case, and Dennis Johnson is now the deputy fire chief in Clarksville. When he was 60, Lonnie took 27 months off to do volunteer work. “I had this nagging sense of an unfilled obligation,” Lonnie says. “I joined the Peace Corps, working at an orphanage in the Philippines.” He and his wife might do a tour together with the Peace Corps when they retire. “We got a special gift out of my first Peace Corps service. We brought a young woman back [to the U.S.] to go to Ivy Tech, and six months after she got here, we adopted her. She’s 26 now, working on her third college degree.” At Ivy Tech, Lonnie relies on his extensive criminal justice and legal work experience. “An academic education is half-baked if the person hasn’t practiced in the area,” Lonnie says. “I teach about what I know. I tell them about the wonderful people I have worked with and the ones who weren’t. I tell them the story about Dennis Johnson and other cases. Yesterday, in Criminal Justice 101 class, a student asked me to help him get his first job in law enforcement. He soon reports in uniform to the Clark County Sheriff ’s Department. I mentor people a lot. I can’t count the number of people who have boosted me in my life.” For about four years, Lonnie and his wife have taken students on international travel trips. “The students see things we never noticed. Going on those trips with those kids, we feel like we get more out of it than they do. It’s incredible.”

THE WRITTEN WORD ENDURES AND SO DOES SHE Carol Butler, president and CEO of Butler Books, continues to publish books so she can keep her husband’s legacy alive. “My husband Bill and I founded Butler Books in 1989,” says Carol, 70. “When Bill died of cancer in 2009, it was very important to me and to our sons that we keep our family business going in his memory and honor. Both of our sons have worked for Butler Books, and our son Billy helps me run the company now. “Over the last 32 years, we have been honored to help hundreds of local authors and organizations publish books. Many of those books capture and preserve the history of our community and will hopefully stay on shelves for hundreds of years. “Nothing is more satisfying than acting as a ‘midwife’ for people giving birth to wonderful books,” she says. “The anniversary books are very important to me. That’s what gets me up every day, having a role in documenting the history of Louisville, preserving the legacy of a lot of Louisville’s organizations. People call all the time and say their organization is going to have an anniversary. That is what motivates me and the reason why I don’t want to retire. I’m still healthy, and this is what I want to do. “As long as our phone keeps ringing and I am able to stay healthy, I plan to continue to run Butler Books. Carol says that her husband’s grave in Cave Hill Cemetery is engraved with ‘Littera scripta manet’ (the written word endures). It’s our family’s legacy, and an important gift and service we can offer authors and organizations in the Louisville community.” Carol’s company and many of its books have won national awards. Her bestsellers are on bookshelves and coffee tables throughout the region: Actors Theatre of Louisville: Fifty Years; 65 Years: making.moving.art, to commemorate the 65th anniversary of The Louisville Ballet; Two Centuries of Black Louisville: A Photographic History by Mervin Aubespin, Kenneth Clay, and J.

PASSIONS BOOK CLUB

By Vanessa Hutchison

Join a Book Club LONG BEFORE THE END BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES THE UNDYING

I

f one of your goals for this year is to spend more time reading than you did in 2020, joining a local book club might be an ideal way to do that. For the most part, book clubs in Louisville and beyond have moved online in order to keep their members safe, holding their meetings on Zoom or other platforms. Participating in an online book club is also a great way to find social interaction. The Long Before the End Book Club, which used to meet at Safai Coffee, has managed to continue its monthly meetings online throughout the past year and is always eager to welcome new members. In January, the group read The Undying: A Meditation on Modern Illness by Anne Boyer. One group member, Justin Magnuson, spoke about the group’s perspective on the selection and about what it’s like when a pandemic forces your book club online. WHAT IS THE UNDYING ABOUT? The author of The Undying, Anne Boyer, is a breast cancer survivor, and the book is ultimately about her experience. But, it is also about a healthcare system that is set up to fail anyone without the financial means to work around it. As such, it is sometimes angry, but also has moments of laughter and hope, and above all, love. WHAT THEMES DID THE GROUP FOCUS ON WHEN DISCUSSING THIS BOOK? Our conversation of The Undying, like most of our meetings, was all over the place, regarding life, the cessation of it, and how it related to the book. In my experience, this book skewed deeper into the territory of poetry and metaphor than most of our selections, lending to a conversation that was more amorphous than usual, even for us. HOW HAS THE GROUP MANAGED TO KEEP GOING STRONG WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING? We have maintained a small core group throughout the pandemic. In the warmer months we met outside, socially distanced, wearing masks, but now we have transitioned to Zoom. Using Zoom might have been difficult if we hadn't known each other for so long, but honestly it hasn't really changed the depth of our conversations. WHAT WILL THE GROUP BE READING NEXT? Next month we're going to view a film instead of reading a book. We'll discuss Kim Ki-duk's 2003 film, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring. Anyone interested in participating in the Long Before the End Book Club can visit the group’s Facebook page for information.

WHAT OTHER GROUPS ARE READING: The Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club is reading Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal. The Carmichael’s Community Book Club and Louisville Book Babes have taken a brief break for the winter, but will be back in the spring with more fabulous reads!

PASSIONS A VISIT WITH...

By Lucy M. Pritchett | Photo by Melissa Donald

A Visit With an Opera Star

E

die Davis Tidwell sang her first solo in elementary school in Moore, Oklahoma. That first performance would lead her to a career in opera, orchestral recitals, and teaching voice at the University of Louisville. Edie sang with the Kentucky Opera, Louisville Orchestra, Louisville Ballet, Louisville Bach Society, and in the Highland Presbyterian Church choir. Further afield, she was with the New York City Opera for seven years, toured England and Wales, and performed on stages from Alaska to Texas to California.

WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU HAD A TALENT FOR MUSIC? Someone must have thought my voice was something special. In second grade, I was asked to sing the state song Oklahoma for each of my school’s classes. Each time I got more mature and gave a stronger ending to the song. I gave my first solo in church when I was 8 years old. Being involved in strong music programs in church really helped develop my voice. HOW DID YOU END UP IN LOUISVILLE? I came to the University of Louisville to study voice in 1968-69. Then, Moritz von Bomhard, founder of the Kentucky Opera, became a strong mentor in my life, and I began to grow vocally and dramatically. Between 1970 and 1982, I had many singing roles with the Kentucky Opera. WHEN DID YOU BEGIN PERFORMING OUTSIDE OF LOUISVILLE? I was teaching and singing here and enjoying it. I didn't really think about going somewhere else. Then, I got a call from the stage director of the opera in Anchorage, Alaska. He had seen me perform with the Kentucky Opera, knew I had performed the role of Tosca, and asked me to come to Anchorage and perform it — that night! That experience sparked an interest in me and led to my debut with the New York City Opera in 1985. I was with them for seven years. You never know what will come your way. WHAT WERE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACED DURING THAT TIME? In one 10-month period I was home for only 19 days. I missed my family (husband Dallas, now deceased, and daughter Kristen). They became really close because they carried on when I wasn't there. One time I came home from a tour, and they had redone the whole kitchen. I hated days off when I was out of town because I was really homesick, but when I was busy creating it was OK.

34 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHAT ROLES DID YOU PLAY? The women I played, dramatic heroines, got thrown around a lot on the stage. There was a lot of fighting and struggling. I was on the floor a lot and my character usually died. My daughter would ask, “How do you die this time?” My favorite way to die was in Bellini’s Norma atop a burning pyre. WHAT CHANGED FOR YOU? When I realized my daughter was going to graduate from high school and I was missing everything, I was more judicious about the opportunities I decided to pursue. In 1993, I really started slowing down because I broke my arm in a performance of Tosca. I slipped on fake blood onstage during an audience-attended dress rehearsal. I finished the run in a cast. That was my last opera. When I got back to Louisville, I had to have my arm reset and a bone graft from my hip. ARE YOU TOTALLY RETIRED? I retired from teaching in 2016 but still work with private students. I love to learn and consider myself a student of music and of opera and have enjoyed taking a few classes.

PASSIONS VOLUNTEER

By Kym Voorhees Raque | Photo by Melissa Donald

“Make It All Count”

A

t 84, Paul Carmony is almost as busy now as when he worked for insurance giant Humana. Carmony retired from the company in 1998 and began volunteering for St Vincent de Paul, where he has volunteered for more than 20 years. He’s affectionately known as The General. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO VOLUNTEER WITH ST. VINCENT DE PAUL? I had a good friend who worked for the organization. When I retired, I was talking with her about what I was going to do, and she told me about the volunteer opportunities at St. Vincent de Paul. That was in 1999, and I’ve been volunteering there ever since. WHAT DO YOUR VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES INCLUDE? I run the Clothes Closet and the Santa Shop on the main campus on Preston Street. The Clothes Closet provides used clothing for the homeless. I go through all the donations, sort the clothes, and organize them to give away. Since the pandemic, we’ve gotten more clothing donations, so I’ve had a lot to sort through. I make sure the Clothes Closet stays stocked. On average, we give away 9,000 to 15,000 clothing items a year. I also run the Santa Shop for needy children. Parents can come in and get new toys, sporting goods, and clothes for their children for Christmas. Area businesses get the wish lists and then supply the items. We serve about 6001,000 children every year. Of course, the need keeps growing. HOW DID YOU GET THE NICKNAME THE GENERAL? One of my first jobs was to organize and set up the Santa Shop. I work with the volunteers, showing them how to sort, organize, and set up all the donated items so the parents can easily find what they need for their children. I have no idea who came up with that term, but that’s what they’ve called me.

36 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHAT HAVE YOU DISCOVERED ABOUT YOURSELF? I have to guard against just accepting that people are homeless or in need and that’s part of life. I don’t want to become desensitized to it. I’ve been very fortunate in my life and want to give back. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME? Most of my spare time is spent at St. Vincent de Paul, but my son, Scott, is head football coach at duPont Manual High School, so I love going to all the games. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHERS INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING? St. Vincent de Paul is a wonderful place to volunteer. We can always use more help. But if they don’t choose us, then I’d recommend the Dare to Care food bank. There are a lot of opportunities to volunteer. You don’t want to ever look back and feel like you’ve wasted the time God’s given you. Make it all count.

CAREGIVER MORE THAN PRETTY FLOWERS

T

here are a lot of emotions that go into bringing a caregiver into the fold, whether that means hiring someone you don’t know to take care of a loved one or asking someone you do know, like a sibling, to act in a different capacity. Caregiving means establishing trust, and good communication is one of the ways that happens. WHAT INFORMATION NEEDS TO BE COMMUNICATED When a caregiver is hired, one of the things that needs to be communicated by the family is what is normal for the client. By having this information, the hired caregiver can then know what is abnormal. “Once normal is established, then abnormalities should always be communicated to the family,” says Kayla Cook, owner and director of Caring Excellence at Home. She says the timeliness of communicating those abnormalities depends on what they are. “If it is a pretty drastic change in the normal, like Mom is dizzy today, then it should be communicated in real time,” she says. Dizziness could be a reaction to medicine or a stroke that proves life-threatening. Other things to communicate in real time include a client’s refusal to take medications, falls, or risks in the home such as a water leak, which could result in extra expenses for the family. Kayla recommends that caregivers keep a flow chart to record information about what clients ate and drank each day and how often they eliminated. She says a client’s orientation level is also important to communicate, because seniors often present with confusion when they are developing a urinary tract infection. ESTABLISHING EXPECTATIONS Whether families hire a caregiver privately or through an agency, Kayla says they need to let their expectations be known from the beginning. Do they want the caregiver to engage the client with games and conversation? Do they want the caregiver to ensure the loved one gets some basic exercise? It is critical for families to convey their expectations in order for caregivers to meet those expectations. Families should also be direct about how often they want communication and in what way (text, flow chart, or phone call). Kayla says families often hire a respite caregiver to take the load off a family member who has been serving as a primary caregiver. “We don’t want it to be a constant barrage of questions and information that’s weighing down that daughter and son,” she says. “We want to take the load off the responsible people as much as they want us to.” A NEED FOR FLEXIBILITY, PATIENCE, AND PREPAREDNESS Janet McCarthy is an experienced caregiver who says being adaptable is a key part of effective communication. “We must all have the ability to shift when needed to accommodate all parties,” she says. Being mindful of other people’s needs and feelings is necessary. Of course, communication also demands that all parties show some patience as well. She says caregivers also need to be organized and prepared so that when and if an emergency occurs, the caregiver can communicate with families and health care providers with accurate information. However, caregivers need to also keep in mind the privacy and the dignity of the person receiving care. “Information should not be given without the permission of all said parties prior to the need,” Janet says. 40 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

“ONCE NORMAL IS ESTABLISHED, THEN ABNORMALITIES SHOULD ALWAYS BE COMMUNICATED TO THE FAMILY.”


A good caregiver will notice and give indications of dizziness or any abnormal behavior. Good communication is important between family members and caregivers.

FAMILY DYNAMICS, COMMUNICATION, AND CAREGIVING A family’s dynamics will be at play when and if a parent develops a need that requires caregiving. As a primary caregiver to her husband for 25 years, a team caregiver to her mother and sister, and a caregiver support group facilitator, Joy Walters has both experienced and heard from others about how family dynamics can impact communication and caregiving. She says many families come into the caregiving role as the result of a crisis situation, such as an older parent falling and breaking a hip. The stress of that crisis has an impact on both how people give and receive communication. “The more critical the situation, the higher the stress; there may be things you think you communicate that you haven’t,” Joy says. Family members often have certain roles; for example, the responsible eldest child or the baby whose siblings never allow her to make decisions. These roles can make communication more of a challenge, so it is important that everyone in the family be included in the communication chain, even if some

of those family members don’t have the ability to be caregivers. Joy says that not every family member has a personality that responds well to a crisis or being a caregiver. Living out of town, having inflexible job schedules, having young children, or having their own medical or mental health challenges impact people’s ability to share in caregiving tasks. COMMUNICATION AND COVID-19 COVID-19 has changed how families receive communication simply because adult children or spouses aren’t able to physically be with their loved ones who are in a hospital or senior community. They aren’t there when a doctor makes rounds nor can they visit the nurses’ station to ask questions, which has put a tremendous strain on families. Hospital and senior care staff are also under tremendous stress to manage infection control protocols and the added complications that come with caregiving during COVID-19. The pandemic has made it especially important that we all, as Joy recommends, remember that we’re all human beings capable of miscommunication or misunderstanding. Today’s Transitions / Spring 2021

CAREGIVER PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

By Lindsay McDonald

Caregiver Circle TAKE TIME FOR RESPITE CARE If a caregiver is not well physically and emotionally, he or she cannot be the critical team member for their loved one. Periodic respite for the caregiver is absolutely necessary. Respite can take the form of a beach vacation or an overnight stay at a nearby hotel, visiting friends and family, or having a meal with a supportive friend. My favorite getaway is going to a tea house with my special friend. It relaxes me like a big bear hug and a warm bath. Calgon, take me away! — Katherine Autin, founder/CEO of Visionary Caregivers and Parkinson Partners

HAVE A HELP LIST READY When someone says to you, "Let me know what I can do to help," it’s okay to let them know what they can do. Have a list of 3 to 5 suggestions so that when friends offer, you are ready with a specific request. Crave a cup of coffee from your favorite spot? Want an hour to go to the store by yourself? Need a freezer meal or two for those nights when you don't have the energy to cook? Be ready to offer suggestions. — Lisa Smith, director of Social Services and Neighborhood Engagement, ElderServe

BE ALERT FOR URINARY TRACT INFECTION SYMPTOMS Often confusion is one of the first signs of urinary tract infections. Monitor how much fluid they drink, being sure they do not get dehydrated. Check to be sure they are using good hygiene and frequently changing incontinence briefs. — Kayla Cook, RN and Owner of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services 42 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

MONITOR MEDICINES Medication mistakes by older people are very common. Be sure to have safeguards in place, such as using a medication planner. To prevent dosing errors, some planners only open at the correct date and time. Be sure to discard old medications in the house. This can help to lessen their risk of taking outdated medications or those no longer prescribed. — Kayla Cook, RN and Owner of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services

CAREGIVER TO A NEW SPACE

THE DECISION TO MOVE By Carrie Vittitoe | Photos by Melissa Donald

T

he reasons why individuals decide to move into a senior living community are as different as the people themselves. Their personalities and experiences also inform why they choose one senior community over another. For Donna Peak, a resident at Masonic Homes of Kentucky’s Miralea independent living, seeing her father deal with Alzheimer’s disease played a major role when it came time to make a decision about her own future. With her two siblings, Donna had to navigate how to best care for their father. “We ended up moving him three times because we were always trying to find the level of care he needed,” she says. When his needs changed, he would have to be moved, sometimes on short notice which was extremely stressful. While her dad passed away in 2010, the experience really impacted Donna and made her latch onto the continuum of care concept, which she learned about in late 2017. “If that was available for Dad, he could have moved into one place and then been moved to different levels of care as professionals recognized that need,” she says. Donna began attending marketing events to begin what she intended as a many years-long process of deciding on a community and then eventually moving in. She thought she would move at age 80. However, in December 2019, she thought, “What am I waiting for?” At 74, she decided she was tired of living by herself. Even though she had long been a homeowner and proud to be independent, she ultimately determined that she wanted more socialization. “The socialization is what really drew me to make the move when I did. Anything I wanted to do I was having to reach out. You have to initiate your own activities whereas here there are planned activities and you just walk down and join in,” she says. “I’m not alone here.” Determining the differences between assisted living, personal care, and skilled care can be cumbersome to people who don’t work in the industry. Connor Joffe, executive director at The Grand, says doing background research on the types of care in Kentucky is imperative. “Unfortunately, sometimes some buildings will accept a resident who is borderline between levels of care or the whole picture hasn’t been presented,” he says, which means senior residents may move into a community that doesn’t offer them what they 44 Spring 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

need, requiring families to hire additional caregivers or worse, having to move the resident repeatedly. Families need to be very clear when communicating what their loved one can and can’t do and what his or her needs are prior to an assessment, which communities do before placing a new resident. It is also critical for families to ask lots of questions, including asking whether the professionals think their loved one is borderline. “The more questions you ask, the better,” Connor says. Hope Janssen, sales director at Masonic Homes of Kentucky, says a view to the future and what could be down the road are important for individuals or families to consider when shopping for a community. Just as important, though, is looking at the health situation now, especially for a married couple. “If you have a husband and wife couple, it is extremely normal for one of them to be in physically better shape or for one of them to need more mental/cognitive support. This has become something that is extremely common,” Hope says. Some communities are adding different levels of care and


adapting what they offer to seniors because so many couples have varied needs but want to be close to each other. She says there are plenty of other issues to consider, including the history of the community and its reputation, the cost versus the value, and the size of the community. The exterior amenities of the senior community, which became so critical during COVID, should also be considered. While the design and decor of a community garners attention, the exterior is important, too. Seniors who love to walk or garden may not be happy with a community that doesn’t have much outdoor space. Seniors who have lived in Kentucky their entire lives with its four distinct seasons might consider moving closer to children but may not love long winters or neverending summers. Patricia McTigue, a resident at The Grand of Prospect, used her past experience living in a senior community in Hilton Head, South Carolina to guide her when she was looking for a new home. Her husband, Tom, had passed away in 2019, and she wanted to be closer to her siblings and children. Not only was Louisville a good central location,

it had once been home; Patricia and Tom had raised their children in St. Matthews many years ago. Patricia says she had visited four senior living communities and was hoping to come back to Louisville to visit more when COVID hit. While waiting to see how things would shake out with the pandemic before booking another flight, “[My sister] called me and said, ‘There’s another place you have to see,’” Patricia says. “She said, ‘This is where you must move; forget about anything else you’ve seen.’” Patricia knew she wanted a deck and to be on the third floor. From the videos and pictures that independent living sales and marketing director Ann Clark sent, Patricia knew she liked what she saw. She loved the size of the one-bedroom apartment, and she trusted her sister’s opinion. Moving into any new space is an adjustment even if it is perfect for you. A new community involves meeting new people and making friends and getting acclimated to new routines. Whether you are 6, 36, or 76, it takes time for a new place to feel like home even if you know you made the best decision for your needs and wants. Today’s Transitions / Spring 2021

CAREGIVER TECH

Independent Eating Technology Story and Photos by Vanessa Hutchison

A REFRIGERATOR THAT’S SMART

While smart refrigerators have a number of excellent features that would be useful to any family, they may be especially helpful to older adults. Samsung Family Hub Smart Refrigerator and other smart technology refrigerators are not only useful for playing music and reading recipes aloud when eyes can’t read tiny print, but it will also help maintain a grocery list and alert users to expiration dates on items in the refrigerator so that old milk can be thrown out before it ends up on a bowl of cereal. This can be especially useful for older adults who have begun to lose a sense of taste or smell. The professionals at The Thrive Innovations Center in downtown Louisville, are committed to help overcome technology fears and offer workshops and training for these devices. They also help to negotiate purchase discounts on some devices for Thrive visitors. Their online live cooking show features local chefs who walk viewers through cooking a recipe and answer questions in real time. For more information, visit thrivecenterky.org.
