December 17, 2014

My friend Cyndy Tandy has been working on this idea for several years, so it’s great to see Louisville Uncovered become a reality. For this week’s Rusty Satellite Show, I checked in with Cyndy as she was taping a new segment of Louisville Uncovered. It’s a series of vignettes lasting about a minute that...

The play, by English writer Nina Raine, opens at a family dinner with a spirited discussion...

Dick Wilson and I can’t figure out how many years we’ve been doing the Breakfast of Champions, but it’s somewhere between five and eight years. We’re guessing. We finished our 2014 series yesterday, with GLI president and former Rusty Satellite Show guest Kent Oyler giving the group a positive message about the future of...

Luke’s Diamond Pursuit and The Newsroom’s Return

November 10, 2014

LUKE: Entry for the weekend. Fairly boring week in terms of my journal because I was very focused on achieving my goal for diamond rank this season for my game. Just to give you a scope on how much I had to play, the system is laid out like this. The ladder is divided into...

Journal: Luke’s Three-Day Week; Homecoming with the Pikes

November 9, 2014

Our Journal: LUKE: Entry for 11/6 thru 11/7. This week was a short week so my teachers see this and decide “We need to give them enough work for a 5 day week isntead of 3.” So I’ve been very busy with not only schoolwork but also this is a fairly important time for my game....

Face It – Fighting Child Abuse is Everyone’s Responsibility

If you gathered the annual victims of child abuse in Kentucky, they would not fit in Slugger Field. The fact that so many Kentucky children suffer from physical, sexual or psychological abuse, or neglect is a sobering thought. In 2013, Kosair Charities began a 10-year initiative to eliminate the problem, mobilizing statewide initiatives that...

Day 17: Boo Tales – Then and Now

November 1, 2014
With Paula on Halloween, in the shirt I've worn every year for at least a couple of decades

LUKE: Halloween woo, but not really. Weirdly no one is doing anything for Halloween so it’s mainly just gonna be a usual Friday. Though in school a couple of classes did Halloween-related things like watch the history of Halloween. That was mildly interesting. Unfortunately I had to walk home today and man was it raining hard and...
