Amazing Grace in Highlands Closing Soon

Grace Carswell is still Amazing after all these years, although she has not been part of the Amazing Grace  Whole Foods market since 2006. After splitting with husband and business partner, Paul Koenig, both the store and its creators have gone through some changes. When they opened the store at 10:30 a.m. on June 17, 1995, Grace may have had thoughts about the positive impact such a business would have on the city; but I doubt she ever thought it would close its doors this soon. The latest news is the store will shut down by the end of the…

Louisville: Nudity-Free Since Just Now

Welcome to another dreary winter’s day in your newly nudity-free city. 56 degrees this weekend, so hang on and tune up the bike. And there’s some good news in here somewhere. Hogan’s Hope: That money the city got from the Readers’ Digest contest (ok, it’s just $1,000) will be going to the Save the  Hogan’s Fountain effort to preserve the teepee. Also, Tammy Madigan, the group’s organizer, says that the local band Hogan’s Fountain will be donating proceeds from iTunes sales of its song “Shine Your  Light on Me” to the effort. All .99 cents, Every little bit helps. Local…

The New Green

There are so many discussions these days by people, organizations, businesses, and communities about what it means to be “green.” The struggle lies in creating workable definitions that create sensible approaches that aren’t crippling financially, that don’t waste extreme amounts of time , and that don’t label the person or entity as extreme ( aka unbalanced). The corporate definition seem to take  an asset focus:   better management of plant and property, waste, and natural resources that ultimately do less harm to the earth. The  consumerist approach  is to “reduce, reuse, and recycle” – minimize the use use of stuff…

Keeping Up with the Locals

We’re nearly a month old, and already surpassed our first milestone — 100 posts on the site. It happened over the weekend with some really great local items — Bob Sokoler’s fascinating video from Actors’ Lobster Feast, Kirk Kandle’s account of moving an entire home by bike, with video.  I keep adding interesting contributors, so keep coming back to the site to see what’s new. Gabe, Part 1: Hope you saw the piece on the Cards’ Peyton Siva (the hero of that double overtime win at Connecticut Saturday) by our new sportswriter, Gabe Duverge. I’m looking forward to getting a…

Louisville Bike Move

It’s about 1.4 miles from from the home they rented on Camp Street to the one they just bought on Fetter Ave., but the miles aren’t the problem when moving locally. It’s all about renting or hiring a truck and crew, loading and unloading the truck, and sifting through the endless odds and ends. Beat me with a rubber hose first! I hate everything about moving. Don’t ask me to help – unless you’re doing it by bicycle. When Andy Dyson and Moira O’Keefe moved to Louisville from Philadelphia last year they rented and easily filled a 26-ft. truck. They…
