PLAY ALL DAY: NEW MALIBU JACK’S INDOOR THEME PARK IS A FAMILY AFFAIR

In the 1950s, Vernon Hatton became a Kentucky basketball legend when he made a halfcourt shot to send the University of Kentucky into a third overtime in what resulted in a victory over Temple University. He went on to become an All-American and played in the NBA, but ultimately left the sport to become an auctioneer in Lexington, Kentucky - a career that suited him well. His sons, Steve, Jeff, and Terry, grew up in the auction business, watching their dad in action every Monday morning in a Lexington tobacco warehouse.

ORIGINS OF THE

JEFFERSONTOWN POLICE DEPARTMENT Writer / Beth Wilder, Director, Jeffersontown Museum Photography Provided

Jeffersontown has an unparalleled police department that is highly respected nationwide, and its history dates back to the late 1700s. In 1799 the Jeffersontown board of trustees appointed a surveyor of Main and Market streets (now known as Watterson Trail and Taylorsville Road). The duties of this official included not only deterring crime, but inspecting the town’s streets, alleys and buildings for cleanliness and signs of deterioration. In 1815 the position became known as overseer of streets. The first semblance of an actual police force came about through an order of the Jefferson

County court on March 10, 1820, when George A. Frederick was appointed captain, and Philip Zillhart, Jr., Henry Herbold and Daniel Risinger were appointed assistant patrollers for Jeffersontown. On July 26, 1830, the town trustees appointed four men - John McPherson, Andrew F. Shafar, Hezekiah Read, and John Muster - as night watchmen. Their duties included patrolling the streets and alleys at night, and to raise an alarm in case of fire. The watch was divided into two shifts - 9 p.m. until 12:30 a.m., and 12:30 a.m. until 4 a.m. By the early 1900s, Jeffersontown had a town marshal, elected by the board of trustees and given authority to name any assistants desired. The marshal had to reside within Jeffersontown’s city limits, and

appeared to be answerable not only to local government, but Jefferson County squires and judges as well. In 1907, M.W. Agee had to resign as town marshal because he lived outside Jeffersontown, and John Hornbeck was elected to take his place. Frank Tyler, who had served as a county patrolman, was appointed town marshal in February of 1910. Articles from the time period indicate that town marshals and county patrolmen worked hand in hand on many cases. Tyler had to move into Jeffersontown before he could be sworn in and begin his duties as town marshal. In April of 1910, the trustees passed a resolution authorizing payment of $1 per month toward the salary of Jeffersontown’s town marshal.

The town marshal’s duties covered everything from making sure pig pens were in sanitary condition to arresting unruly citizens. Primarily, the marshals policed the town’s streets, enforcing ordinances that had been enacted by Jeffersontown’s trustees. Most of these rules were related to the upkeep and safety of the town. The marshals did have to deal with crimes such as burglaries and murders, and their duties were not without risk. In 1932 former marshal Willis Simpson was sworn in while R.C. Smith, town marshal and chairman of the town council, recovered from a severe beating received at the hands of a man he attempted to arrest. By 1946 the town marshal was earning $50 per month, and Jeffersontown also had a police judge named James Bowles who became the town’s first mayor in 1953. The primary duty of the police judge was to assess traffic fines in Jeffersontown. The deputy town marshal at that time, Joseph A. Jones, was also the maintenance

superintendent of Jeffersontown’s water and sewerage commission. Before he was appointed, the town council had to come to an understanding with Jones’s employers that his work as deputy would not interfere with his work at the commission. Obviously, Jeffersontown’s city leaders wore different hats at the time, for little money. On January 7, 1955, the Jeffersonian newspaper noted that the town council had “approved appointment of Police Chief M.A. Storch for another one-year term.” This would indicate a change in title from town marshal to police chief sometime in the early 1950s. That same day, Police Judge W.D. Menefee issued his annual report, stating that there were 101 cases handled in 1954 with a total of $1,500 in assessed fines, primarily from traffic violations. In January of 1956 Police Chief Chester Robinson resigned after just a few months on the job. The council intended to

hire Ernest Shryock, the police chief of Taylorsville and a former captain of the Jefferson County Police Department, at a salary of $4,500 per year. However, the council had to look for someone else when Shryock opted to stay with Taylorsville’s department, since that department offered to not only raise his salary, but also equip the city with a police car. Jeffersontown finally got its own police car and a two-way radio in 1957, after Gene Teague was hired as chief of police at a salary of $350 per month. M.A. Storch, Robert Genho and Sergeant Gilbert Hubbuch were all part-time officers. Teague resigned in September of 1958 and was replaced by Thomas Bridwell, who had been a county patrolman for 18 years. By ordinance, Bridwell was appointed for a period of 14 months. He received $300 per month, had to purchase his own uniforms, and received one week of paid vacation after completion of one year’s service.

By 1965 Herb Meyer was serving as police chief, with Joe Hash, Robert L. Ogborn and Harvey Gaddie rotating full-time shifts as patrolmen from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. and 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. The Jeffersontown Police Department’s brown uniforms were styled after those worn by Kentucky state troopers. The department changed to blue and gray uniforms in 1966, however, because the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Association adopted Army pinks and Jeffersontown leaders wanted to be different. In 1968 the Jeffersontown Police Department acquired a new portable car radio for $1,055. At the time the force consisted of five officers, and it had two wagons on the road plus one old car. By 1972, the 10-man department had five patrol cars on duty 24 hours per day. Later that year, a bid of $23,731.86 was accepted from Jim Booher Chevrolet to provide six take-home cars. With lights and radios, the total price of all the new cars combined was $28,000. In 1973 the base salary for a

patrolman was $648 per month, and the department’s headquarters was in city hall. In 1975 Reverend Tom Dillard began acting as Jeffersontown Police Department chaplain. A year later, the police department began renovating the old Sunshine Lodge on Bluebird Lane as its new headquarters, and F.O.P. Lodge #26 was established. The police force grew by leaps and bounds, and by 1990 Mayor Daniel Ruckriegel

was negotiating with the owners of Skate World to purchase the building at 10410 Taylorsville Road and renovate it into a new police department. The rest, as they say, is history - but far too much to be included in this article. Jeffersontown is very fortunate to have such an exceptional police force, and we are grateful for the 200-plus years of service and protection the force has continually provided.

PRIMO’S PIZZERIA 2043 S. Hurstbourne Pkwy Louisville, KY 502-749-7072 Primoslou.com

Writer / Christy Heitger-Ewing

In September of 2019 Ankit Chudgar opened Primo’s Pizzeria, a hand-crafted pizza establishment where customers can create their own pizza masterpieces. Each pizza is cooked up and served in five to 10 minutes with fast, friendly service combined with an infusion of fantastic flavor. “We have our own dough recipe and use the freshest ingredients we can get our hands on,” Chudgar says. “All of this enables us to put out a superior product.” Chudgar owns the family establishment with his retired parents. The three were looking to invest in a restaurant and considered a franchise opportunity, but a franchise didn’t seem like a good fit to Chudgar, who has been involved in the restaurant business ever since he helped his dad run an ice cream shop as a kid. Chudgar worked in restaurants through his college years, and also has experience in sales and marketing. “I’ve always been passionate about cooking and food,” says Chudgar, who has three children that help at the restaurant in the same way he helped his dad when he was young. The Primo’s team buys fresh produce and cuts it themselves. They also offer a chicken tikka masala specialty pizza. “The same gravy that goes on the chicken we use as a sauce on the pizza,” Chudgar says. “When we make a few of them, the smell changes from a pizza place to an Indian place and then back to a pizza place.”

Feedback on the specialty pizza has been so positive that Chudgar is currently working on creating a Jamaican jerk pizza as well. He plans to eventually feature 10 to 12 specialty pizzas that will rotate seasonally. Primo’s offers nine sauces and spreads, six cheeses, 18 vegan and vegetarian toppings, nine meat toppings, seven types of herbs and seasonings, and seven crusts including wheat, cauliflower, broccoli, and vegan (the cauliflower crust is keto friendly). The eatery also features vegan meat and cheese, vegetarian and gluten-free options, as well as a crustless pizza for those who want to avoid toppings,” Davis says. “You can order your dream pizza. The owners are really great carbs but still enjoy pizza. people. It just feels like family.” “We try to please everyone,” Chudgar says.

A SOUND APPROACH The Louisville Orchestra is Pushing Into New Musical Territories Under the Direction of Teddy Abrams Writer / Shannon Siders Photography Provided

When Teddy Abrams was considering taking over as music director for the Louisville Orchestra in 2013, he saw great potential in making Louisville his new home. Now wrapping up his sixth season at the helm, he’s never been more confident in his decision. “Everything I saw before I got the job was very indicative of the possibilities of what this city could be, and what the orchestra could be,” Abrams says. At just 32 years old, Abrams has received acclaim and praise within the music industry, leading the Louisville Orchestra to impressive heights. “Louisville was already an amazing city, and I saw the ingredients there to take the

artistic community - and possibly even the artistic philosophy, but encouraging of it. whole city - to a new level,” he says. “A major urban growth spurt, revitalizations, and an Jim James, frontman for musical act My artistic flowering have taken place.” Morning Jacket, recently teamed up with Abrams and the Louisville Orchestra to Although he is originally from Berkeley, produce an album titled “The Order of California, Abrams will say he is from Nature”. The project had a special meaning Louisville when asked. He has already for James, whose great aunt performed for the Louisville Orchestra under Music signed on for at least five more years as music director for the Louisville Orchestra - Director Robert Whitney. a huge commitment to the city.  The nine-song album, which was released “It’s been a great adventure,” says Abrams of in October via the Decca Gold record his time so far in the city. “We’ve done lots label, garnered a level of national praise and of crazy projects, pushed the envelope, and attention that very few orchestral albums made that the standard.”  achieve. Only two orchestras, Louisville and the New York Philharmonic, are signed Abrams and the team at the Louisville to the label, which is under the Universal Orchestra have worked together to umbrella.  eliminate the routine and expected, instead striving to weave a full narrative into each of “Decca Gold is a fantastic label, and their productions. The team quickly found they’ve believed in us since we started our that patrons are not only open to this new relationship,” Abrams says. “It’s a big deal APRIL 2020


for an orchestra of our size to sign with any label, much less a major label, and it’s been really cool to see the relationship that’s developed. [ James] is a very special collaborator and musical visionary. He’s open to letting people’s talent complement his. He provided seeds and foundation for each song, and was open to letting us explore orchestral colors you don’t have access to on a pop or rock album.” Typically, an orchestra may hope to sell a couple thousand copies of an album, and expect to play for small groups of local orchestra lovers and subscribers. “The Order of Nature” gave the Louisville Orchestra the opportunity to take their show on the road, with performances in several major U.S. cities including Chicago, New York and Seattle.

“Those shows have given us a great opportunity to really share what we’re doing here in Louisville with other orchestras and communities where [ James] has a following,” Abrams says. The album had a national rollout, with a review in Rolling Stone and the opportunity to appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.  “That was an amazing experience that orchestras usually never get a taste of,” Abrams says. “It was a really proud moment for all of us representing the city. Part of our mission is to really carry the banner for Louisville, and make positive associations with the town. We want to increase the understanding of how special Louisville is and how creative our arts community is.” The national attention will continue into 2021, as it was recently announced that the Louisville Orchestra was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall as part of the “Carnegie Hall Presents” series. The orchestra will join James and the Louisville Ballet for a February 20 performance.

“[The Carnegie Hall leadership] has been keeping their eye on what we’ve been doing over the last several years, and it’s really wonderful that they’re inviting us to share that with a New York audience,” Abrams says. “We’re hoping to turn it into a weeklong festivity celebrating Louisville and Kentucky. This is an opportunity to redefine how people see our state, and New York is the place to do it.” The Carnegie Hall show won’t be the first taste of the Louisville Orchestra for New Yorkers. At the beginning of the current performance season, the city’s major classical radio station, WQXR, featured a live broadcast of the orchestra’s openingnight performance. Abrams and his team have continued to grow the Louisville Orchestra’s presence locally as well, with innovative performances and programs to keep locals engaged and coming back for more.

The 2019-2020 performance season will wrap up a bit earlier than usual, with the last performance slated for the end of April. On April 24, the orchestra will take the stage at one of the newest performance venues in the city, Old Forester’s Paristown Hall, followed by a show the next night at Whitney Hall. Both shows include a performance of “The Blue Hour,” a piece of music that has been played only one other time by an orchestra. One of the composers, Shara Nova, will join the orchestra as a vocalist for the performance.

relate to people in a way that seems both relevant, and and connects opposites with each other,” Abrams says. “It’s a really special way of presenting new American music.”

“It’s a next-generation concert experience,” says Abrams of the Paristown shows. “We take several intermissions so people can socialize, buy drinks and hang out in an informal environment. The sound quality is very vibrant, and gives off more of a rock concert feel.”

Abrams has already seen an example of the city’s transformational possibilities over the last six years in his own NuLu neighborhood. The burgeoning entertainment district has received national attention, and has been part of what’s kept Abrams interested in sticking around.

As Abrams looks to the future, he is excited to continue creating immersive music pieces (a term he coined) in conjunction with the orchestra, similar to his award-winning composition, “The Greatest: Muhammad Ali”. In creating these immersive pieces, he combines drama, film, poetry and other artistic mediums, with music connecting The orchestra performed a concert at the new them all.

The orchestra’s outreach has helped bring music to people in a brand new way.

“For me, the real change in this city’s artistic profile will occur when artists are moving to Louisville on their own, seeing it as a place they want to come live because the artistic environment aligns with their aesthetic,” Abrams says.

Play All Day New Malibu Jack’s Indoor Theme Park Is A Family Affair Writer / Christy Heitger-Ewing

In the 1950s, Vernon Hatton became a Kentucky basketball legend when he made a half-court shot to send the University of Kentucky into a third overtime in what resulted in a victory over Temple University. He went on to become an All-American and played in the NBA, but ultimately left the sport to become an auctioneer in Lexington, Kentucky - a career that suited him well. His sons, Steve, Jeff, and Terry, grew up in the auction business, watching their dad in action every Monday morning in a Lexington tobacco warehouse. “Dad was an entertainer,” Steve says. “He told stories and got people laughing. People drove several hours to come listen to him and eat chili dogs.” Steve and his brothers carried on the tradition until about 15 years ago, when they decided to branch out from the

auction business and open the Kentucky Basketball Academy, a five-court facility that held national basketball and volleyball tournaments. Steve’s son Tyler began working with his dad at age 12, acting as scorekeeper at basketball games. Though the family enjoyed aspects of the business, they dealt with a good bit of negativity. “Basketball tournaments had 40 teams and 39 of those teams lost, so you can imagine that there was a lot of complaining,” Steve says. “Just dealing with that negativity was an event itself.” Steve and his brothers thought about how great it would be to create a place that would foster nothing but good times and fun vibes. Steve had a friend who opened an outdoor family fun center in Kentucky, but the fickle midwestern weather was brutal for business and it closed after a few years. Steve began thinking about offering an indoor facility APRIL 2020

with similar amenities. In the meantime, Tyler was studying communications and advertising in college. He also served for a few years on a church mission trip to Argentina where he learned how much he enjoyed helping others and seeing joy in people’s eyes. “Dad was cooking up this idea of a family fun center with his brothers, and although I knew they were full of great ideas, I wanted to make sure they could refine those ideas,” says Tyler, who worked on branding the concept by creating logos and signage, and officially joined the family business after graduating from college. The family did some research and found that most arcades were dark and filled with neon. They chose to go in a different direction, envisioning a beach vibe that was bright, colorful and festive. In 2013 Steve and his brothers found an


old tennis center in the Lexington area that was for sale, and decided to take the plunge and open Malibu Jack’s Indoor Theme Park featuring electronic go-karts, laser tag, miniature golf, virtual reality activities, a basketball shootout and more. “We brought in palm trees, waterfalls, bright lights and a boardwalk to walk around,” Tyler says. “It got a lot of people’s attention. Nobody was putting in a huge tropical golf course inside.”

possible, and were closed to the public for just ten days. “That was pretty good considering all we had to do,” Steve says. The transition included taking apart and putting together rides, moving games, as well as hiring and training new staff members as the business grew from 35 to 100 employees. The size of the new location enabled the owners to increase their arcade offerings, add an 18-lane bowling alley, and include a high-speed Wave Rider that’s similar to the Super Himalaya ride at the state fair. In addition, a restaurant and bar will open this spring.

Investors came knocking and after a few years of success, the family decided to open another Malibu Jack’s in Louisville in 2016. The indoor theme park has been so popular that in December of 2019, the owners moved the business to a new location on Hurstbourne Parkway that nearly doubled their square footage from 65,000 to 120,000.

“People love being able to enjoy a nice meal right on site,” Steve says. “It enables them to stay here all day in this laid-back atmosphere.”

The family did their best to make the transition as fast and seamless as

flocked to the facility. “Everyone was so happy,” he says. “It’s just what Louisville needed.” People are drawn to the friendly competition of go-karts. For kids 10 and under, the Bounce Beach play area is also popular. “The only time a child cries at Bounce Beach is when parents tell them it’s time to leave,” says Steve, who offers special deals to nonprofit organizations like Angels in Disguise and Big Brothers Big Sisters. At the original location, Malibu Jack’s was known as a kids’ fun zone, so the owners did all they could to let the public know they had something for everyone - from toddlers to grandparents. Teenagers especially enjoy the indoor theme park for date nights, and adults can also have a ball. One of Steve’s fondest memories at Malibu Jack’s is when he was sitting by the waterfall under the palm trees, and a little girl walked by with her father and asked, “Daddy, is this paradise?” The dad replied, “It might be close, honey!” After working for so many years at the Kentucky Basketball Academy, Steve had gotten used to fielding complaints anytime someone approached him. Once he transitioned into the family fun business, he braced himself the first time an employee told him that a parent wanted to speak to him. As the parent started talking, he said to Steve, “Sir, do you own this place?”

Steve nodded, thinking, “Uh-oh. Here we go.” do a lot of work for the business as well.

pring has finally sprung. It’s that time of year when you want to feel refreshed and clean, and declutter your house while you’re at it. With the weather starting to warm up, you’ll want to start heading outside to enjoy the sun and fresh air. Nevertheless, we all have a need to clean this time of year - so what is the best way to tackle this year’s spring cleaning to-do list? It doesn’t have to be overwhelming, and it can even be fun. Getting the house in working order again feels good, and you can do it. Here are a few tips that will help you along to a very successful spring cleaning campaign.

TAKE IT ONE ROOM AT A TIME

CLEAR THE CLUTTER

Houses can be overwhelming when it comes to cleaning, so be sure to break your cleaning down into smaller, manageable projects. One easy way to do this is to think in terms of one room at a time. Use a room checklist as a place to start, and also as a way to prevent forgetting about items you might not always clean. If you’ve already cleaned some items in certain rooms then feel free to skip, but you are sure to find something that’s taken a back seat all winter and needs a deep clean. Start with rooms that get the most traffic so that if your plans get derailed, you’ll still have a sense of accomplishment.

One of the biggest and best parts of spring cleaning is the purging of anything and everything you don’t need anymore. The feeling of letting go is a major way to refresh your soul this spring. Think about this in four categories - trash or recycle, sell, donate, and, finally, put away. There are always things we want to keep, and some we can do without. Make piles for each. If you choose to sell, list items on Facebook Marketplace as you are setting those items aside. With regard to donations, see if you can fill a bag to donate every day for a month. You can also plan a garage sale - cleaning is so much easier with the clutter out of the way.

APRIL 2020


FAMILY FUN Get your family involved. Throw on some music and add in some family incentives to get everyone on the same page with donations and trash. There’s no need for you to do all the work! DON’T IGNORE SEASONAL CHORES We all know there are chores that should be done seasonally, and we typically ignore them. Now that the weather is getting nicer, tackle chores like cleaning grills, patios and windows. Doing these chores even once or twice a year will keep your house running smoothly and looking great. USE THE RIGHT TOOLS AND SUPPLIES There are many cleaning supplies and tools out there that companies want you to think that you need, but it’s better to refrain from buying everything. Having dozens and dozens of cleaning products on hand at all

times just clutters up the cabinets. Along with your mop, broom and vacuum, make sure you have a good all-purpose cleaner on hand for most projects. Other basics include an all-purpose powder or liquid cleaner for larger washable surfaces, an abrasive cleaner for small, heavily soiled areas, a nonabrasive cleaner for gentle cleaning on surfaces that scratch easily, chlorine bleach, glass cleaner, a furniture duster, and a toilet-bowl cleaner. These items should get you started quite nicely.

CALL IN THE PROS If your budget allows, there might be a few things you could take off of your list and bring in a professional to clean. Window, carpet and upholstery cleaning are much easier tasks for pros who do it all the time. Not only will this save you time, but it also might save you money as certain tasks often require tools you probably don’t have on hand.

NOW BATTING MIDDLETOWN NATIVE GREG GALIETTE IS LIVING HIS DREAM AS SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF THE LOUISVILLE BATS built yet,” he says. “I remember going to St. Matthews for grocery shopping because there was no grocery in Middletown at the time.”

Writer / Carrie Vittitoe Photographer / Bruce Hardin Blue Harvest Photography

The East of of Louisville in 2020 is vastly different than that of the 1950s. Where a drive down Shelbyville Road now takes you past gas stations, restaurants, boutiques, big box stores and frequently through mindboggling traffic. A drive in the 50s and 60s might have seemed downright idyllic: farmland dotted with sheep or cows, widely spaced utility poles, a hardware store, a diner, and a Hudson Wasp or Simca Vedette rambling down the road. As a kid growing up in Woodland Hills, the subdivision behind Eastern High School in Middletown, Greg Galiette was able to experience those blissful conditions. “I actually have photos of our house down on Westwood. You could see all the way up to the high school because a lot of the houses up toward that part of the subdivision hadn’t been

He would often ride his bike the six miles to Floyd’s Fork to fish or hang out at Wish’s Drugs, where he and his friends would buy candy, soft drinks, or baseball cards. He eventually worked as a lifeguard at Cox’s Lake and would ride his bike to work.

He attended Hite Elementary and distinctly recalls his first day of first grade. His father had died from Hodgkin’s lymphoma when Galiette was only five years old, and he remembers, “I did not want to be at school.” His mom had driven him that morning, but it was close enough to walk home so he simply left school and beat his mother home.

“I was waiting for her on my front porch when she pulled in,” he says. “She was not “Obviously, you don’t dare do that now with happy.” the traffic,” he says. “It shows you how quiet Middletown was back then.” He spent the remainder of his years at Hite walking to and from school each day, and Galiette recalls how the children of then did the same to Eastern, which, prior Woodland Hills would have basketball to Crosby Middle School’s construction, tournaments in which kids from one street was for students in grades 7-12. would compete against children from another street. It wasn’t unusual during the His mother was a professional artist but summer for 15-20 kids, ranging in age from sometimes worked as a substitute teacher elementary to high school, to play softball at Eastern High School.

“They thought they would get away with murder,” he says, but his mom had different plans. “A lot of them cut the class, and my mom turned them in. They thought, ‘There’s no way Mrs. Galiette’s going to turn us in.’ My friends did not like me for about two months.” Galiette has always loved sports, from the neighborhood pickup games to basketball in junior high. His first love, though, was football, but four broken bones in youth league, including in his wrist, put an end to that sport. He was on the Eastern varsity track team as a seventh grader and was talented enough in discus and javelin to earn a partial scholarship to the University of Louisville. “I finished second in the state in discus my senior year,” he says. Despite his past wrist injuries, Galiette says weight-lifting in high school helped build strength in his arms and wrists.

“I could always throw things,” he says. “It always came easy to me.” Not only did Galiette succeed in sports at Eastern, he also ended up meeting his wife, Kelly, while there, although he admits she dated one of his best friends. Galiette waited about a year after their breakup before asking her out. He entered the University of Louisville with the intention of being pre-law, but switched to political science and finally landed on business with an emphasis in marketing. During his time at U of L, he continued to date Kelly and lived at home with his mom. In addition to studying, he worked three jobs during his junior and senior years. He worked at Country Animal Hospital, American Fitness as a personal fitness instructor, and as a gym manager at Gold’s Gym in New Albany, Indiana. “The days were pretty long,” he says. “I’d

His family thought he was nuts because he took a sizable pay cut from his position at Xerox, but after more than three decades, he is glad he took the leap to chase his dream. Galiette is in his 35th year with the Louisville Bats Baseball Club and has “done just about everything” for the organization, from season ticket group sales to assistant general manager to senior vice president.

football for 33 years and was on ESPN for a few years when they first came on in the late 70s,” he says.

“I was even the ticket office manager for a few years at Cardinal Stadium and have some great memories from there when we had the Grateful Dead concert and the Rolling Stones,” he says.

After graduating from U of L, he began a job at Xerox in sales, but says “I was already starting to pester A. Ray Smith, the gentleman who brought professional

During the off-season, Galiette says he sells ads and works on sponsorships, while during the regular season, he is the face and voice of the Bats. He serves as a liaison between the front office and the coaches and team. He is also responsible for putting together a promotional schedule. “Never is one day the same as the other,� he says.

When Cara Starns chose to attend a session on child victims of human trafficking during a regional conference last year, she had no idea it would alter the course of her life. “It just so happens that I was sitting next to a child trafficking detective from the state during the session,” Starns says. When the presenter revealed that Kentucky had no shelter specifically and solely designed to serve sexually exploited and trafficked children, Starns says, “the detective elbowed me and said, ‘Did you hear that?’” Even though human trafficking had been at the center of her career from the very beginning, Starns, who had recently returned home to Kentucky to develop a Refuge for Women site in Louisville, was shocked to hear that no shelters existed

in Kentucky for trafficked children — especially since the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services reports that there have been 787 reported incidents of child sex trafficking in Kentucky since 2013, involving 949 alleged victims. Still, Starns says, “my first reaction was, ‘What does this have to do with me?’” As far as she was concerned, her work had not changed. It was still to open a Refuge for Women site in Louisville. Before long, however, that elbow nudge from the detective turned into an internal nudge Starns couldn’t ignore. She spent six months conducting research on what it would take for Refuge for Women to open a children’s shelter in Kentucky. Her conclusion was clear, if not disappointing. “I determined that a shelter for sexually exploited and trafficked children would have to be its own thing,” Starns says. “Refuge for Women couldn’t do it.”

When Starns presented her research findings to the national board of Refuge for Women, she thought it was the end of the matter, an inquiry she would ultimately put behind her. Instead, “they told me that if I wanted to take it on, they would support me,” she says. This was the second nudge, which was quickly followed by a third. “A family foundation called and told us they would provide seed funding if we decided to move ahead with the project,” Starns says. Despite all these nudges, Starns knew she was up against tough odds. Several other groups had tried to open shelters for sexually exploited and trafficked children in the past, and each attempt had failed. She had no reason to believe her efforts would be any different than previous ones. Starns decided to continue moving forward, however, and others soon decided to join her.

What started as one woman’s research project quickly developed into a nonprofit organization called Safe Passage, whose mission is “working to open Kentucky’s first shelter for sexually trafficked and exploited children.” In addition to Starns, who serves as the organization’s Founder and President, Safe Passage is led by a seven-member board of directors, one of whom is a survivor of childhood exploitation. “They’ve partnered with me in our absolute hardest stage,” Starns says, “building from absolutely nothing.” Even though Safe Passage is less than a year old, they have already raised more than $150,000 toward their fundraising goal of $200,000 this year. While Starns is proud of this accomplishment, she knows they have a long way to go toward sustainability. “The shelter will cost half a million dollars

each year to run,” she says. She hopes to be able to open the shelter by 2021. Safe Passage will not be eligible for government funding until after the shelter has opened, so the organization is currently focused on raising support from monthly donors and foundations. When it is open, the shelter will provide holistic aftercare to child victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking. The residential program will be geared toward girls aged

12-17 and will last up to 12 months. Comprehensive, evidence-based and traumainformed services will be provided in an environment designed to encourage residents to rebuild safety, trust and community. Outpatient services, such as therapy, classes and case-management, will be available to victims who have a safe place to return. Trafficked boys will also be eligible for outpatient services, and caregivers of trafficked children will be able to receive support services that will equip them to

partner with the child in their recovery. The fact that the shelter won’t open for a couple more years hasn’t kept Safe Passage from finding other ways to address child sex trafficking in the meantime. Safe Passage currently offers a youth prevention program for students across the state called “Raise the Standard.” The program, which was founded under Refuge for Women, has two main sessions: sexual abuse and human trafficking. “We do both because all of our human trafficking victims have been sexually abused before,” she says. “The sexual abuse session is heavy because it’s not just preventative, it’s an intervention.”

The human trafficking session, by contrast, is more preventative. “Most of the time, if people are trafficked, they’ve already left According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, one in four girls school,” Starns says. and one in six boys will be sexually abused Safe Passage is working on developing before they turn 18, meaning that in any given session, presenters are likely speaking a training for foster parents on how to

recognize the signs of child sex trafficking and how to intervene. According to the Safe Passage website, “94% of [victims of sex trafficking] already have a history with child welfare.” Starns hopes to begin offering the training as soon as next year. Starns knows that the level of comprehensive prevention and support Safe Passage will offer is needed now more than ever.

“Trafficking children has never been easier,” she says. “Traffickers pull up their phone and get on Instagram or Snapchat, message 100 kids, and are just looking for one to respond. It’s never been easier with social media. After several months of grooming, a child ends up leaving their house of their own will.” Despite the somber urgency of her work, Starns is quick to point out the importance of maintaining hope in the midst of it all. “We do everything through the lens of hope,” she says. “We want the people we engage with to feel like they can change things — I can change my life, and I can change my community.” If you or someone you know is a minor who has been sexually trafficked or exploited and is in need of help now, you can find nearby resources in the National Human Trafficking Hotline’s Referral Directory: humantraffickinghotline.org/ training-resources/referral-directory.
