This is NOT a LouisvilleKY.com Test

Notice anything different this morning? No? Well we have taken the “Beta” tag off the masthead here at LouisvilleKY.com, so no more using the “we’re just in Beta” excuse for any shortcomings on the site.  We’ve been tinkering with things for about 6 weeks, so it’s about time, right? On Friday, several of us went down to Browning’s on a beautiful evening and had a few beers. Thanks to everyone from the team who joined me: Cindy Lamb, Angela Champion, Brigid Kaelin, David Caldwell, Holly Brockman Johnson, Kirk Kandle (who arrived, of course, on his bike), Jeff Schneider and our…


God, Mystics and Archetypes

Was delighted at the turnout and “turn in” for the Matthew Fox event last night. He offered Einstein’s deathbed quote when asked of his regrets – answer was that he hadn’t studied the mystics sooner. Today’s workshop starting at 9:30 will address: · Where is God? · What are the ways to experience God? · What results from these experiences? more info: https://www.cultivatingconnections.org/Matthew_Fox_Workshop.html Another opportunity February 20, 2011 at Unity of Louisville 11am Worship Service – Lecture and Book Signing Matthew Fox will be the guest speaker during the morning worship service. see you there!

Welcome Douglass Loop Farmers Market!

I trust Louisville and the Highlands neighborhood will embrace the newest addition to the Farmers Market family—Douglass Loop Farmer’s Market, beginning Saturday, April 16. The goal of market organizer, Blair Helvey, is “to provide a direct conduit between Kentucky producers and local consumers for the sale of healthy and affordable goods.” With Kentucky Proud products along side info on sustainable living, the vendors should create a wide range of interest for local merchants, schools, organizations and families in the Highlands and beyond. The spring market runs through Sept. 24with a Fall & Holiday market running from October 01- December 17, 2011.  It…

Siva’s Steals Help Louisville Shut Down Connecticut

Peyton Siva’s 16 point effort and Gorgui Dieng’s first career double-double helped Louisville put the stamp on its invitation to the NCAA tourney. Thanks to another signature win, the Cardinals will undoubtebly be in the big dance. The Cardinals (20-7) secured their ninth straight twenty win season, and their fourth straight against the Huskies (20-6.) The win came after a double overtime thriller in Connecticut three weeks ago that fired up the Louisville faifthful. UofL put on a show for the 22,776 at the KFC Yum! Center. UConn only led once for 23 seconds and the Cards won it 71-58. Defense was…

Delectable End of the Week Goodies

What a way for the week to end — with every TV station camped outside the federal courthouse, anxiously awaiting for something, anything, to happen with the Karen Sypher sentencing. As I write this, WAVE has a live stream from the other side of Broadway from the courthouse, where people are milling about. It may be the least interesting live stream in the history of video. Except for the comments you can overhear from the unseen people behind the camera about female reporters. Karen’s wearing a blue pantsuit with an open-collared light blue top.  Check out the C-J’s video footage…

The Sypher Circus is Underway

Today at 1:30, Karen Sypher is supposed to get her medicine. The circus, I’m told, has already begun down by the courthouse. And the big question is – will local TV stations cut in to local progamming to reveal the sentence? WAVE-TV news director Kathy Hostetter says it depends on what happens. She’s certainly got a crew down there. “We will cut in if needed, depending on what happens,” she said. “More than likely we will cut in. ” Sorry soap opera fans. A real-life drama may be pre-empting today’s show. More than two hours before the sentencing is scheduled,…

Bridge Toll Opposition Reloads

Even as a two-day forum on the Ohio River Bridges Project was wrapping up, with all right people saying all the right things while failing to come up with anything new, one of the staunchest groups of opponents of the project is planning a new public relations push. Organizers of the Bridges Forum seem to believe that hammering home to the public, over and over, about how important the projects are will somehow make it true.  So they trotted out Rick Pitino and John Calipari, and got 800 people in a room to listen. But the crowd was mostly made…

Third Thursday Fun

I attended my first The Voice-Tribune Third Thursday event held at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. Good crowd, so much so that they ran out of gift bags long before all the people arrived and I was being asked by “inquiring minds” where I got my bag. I look into my bag and discover a box of Muth’s candies. I eat one. I laugh as I think of the bag – when I was at the bar getting a libation, my bag was on my arm and went just up under the bar. When I backed away I noticed…


The Voice: A Holographic Blueprint

Of the many different Sound Healing experiences I have had, one stands out as the most “clinical” or “technical”.  This is Anne Lindstrom’s work called SOUNDINGS PLUS ©. Anne’s work is based on the premise that your voice is a holographic blueprint of your whole body. She uses software to measure your voice, charting the areas of strength, weakness and toxicity. This is the most “clinical” part. She then takes you through the protocol to detox and return the needed notes to your voice – improving your whole body. SOUNDINGS PLUS has research identifying specific correlations: problems with communication and…
