Life Is Grand (Again) for Hal Heiner

Congratulations are in order for Hal and Sheila Heiner as their third grandchild, Samuel Louis Keyes, arrived March 20, 2011. Weighing in at 7lb, 6oz and  20 inches long, Samuel was born under this year’s “Super Moon” at 3:24 a.m.–pretty much bringing the season of Spring with him– if not one of the most anticipated lunar tides in years. Big brothers Daniel (turning four in May) and Noah (celebrating his second birthday on April 16), are thrilled with the new addition to the family. Even though the new bundle who’s got friends and family humming the “My Three Sons” theme…

Cards Lose to Kentucky 3-2, Continues Early Disappointment

Cardinal Baseball entered 2011 with top 25 ranking and a great shot at a three-peat as Big East Champions. Yet, ever since returning from their West Coast road trip last month, they haven’t been the same team. Louisville entered the Tuesday night clash with the Wildcats hoping to right the ship. They didn’t start off that way, with the Cats quickly scoring two runs in the top of of the first inning. UofL once again struggled to over take the early deficit. The Wildcats should have increased their lead stranding runners in scoring position on three separate occasions. Sophomore rightie…

This Is Getting Good–(Well The Gossip Is)

We’re still a few months away from the May Primary and already the juicy stories have begun to emerge in the Governor’s race. Between presumptive GOP nominee David Williams’ reported gambling losses several years ago, and now the divorce of his running mate Richie Farmer, this is turning into a regular Jerry Springer Show on wheels. To be fair, Williams’ losses were revealed in his own divorce action from his first marriage, and are public record. So, you may ask, what is the issue? Well, none really, unless you recall that it has been largely through Williams efforts that Governor…

Going Green Gets Louisville More Attention

Here’s another coup for the Green Building on Market Street. On Thursday morning, representatives from the U.S. Post Office and Council members David Tandy and Tina Ward-Pugh will be for the unveiling of a set of 16 new postage stamps. It’s one of only two press conference in the country tomorrow announcing the new stamps, which offer up “green” tips. Among them — riding bikes, planting trees and fixing water leaks. But the big news for the Green Building is it’s getting a 1st-day cancellation stamp in honor of the Green Building. The cancellation stamp will be placed on all…

Obviously Those Metro Council Funds Should be Cut

This morning’s C-J editorial addresses an obvious point to anyone who wants good government — the discretionary money provided by the city to Metro Council members should be drastically reduced or eliminated. No one other than the groups getting the money would notice if the funds went away. As the editorial points out, a lot of the money is given to churches and faith-based groups, or organizations like Dismas Charities, which already has a black eye from the public’s point of view. Small cities and support for public schools may be worthy causes, but the way the money is awarded…

Tasty Mayo-Free Chicken Salad

By Barbara Day, M.S., R.D., C.N. Just calling something a ‘salad’ doesn’t necessarily make it healthy. Traditional chicken ‘salad’ touts full-fat mayonnaise and half a day’s worth of sodium. By making small changes, like substituting smaller amounts of olive oil for mayo and adding fresh tomatoes and dark leafy greens, you can significantly reduce the fat and calories and even add some cancer protection into your meal. Plus making small changes can help you maintain a healthy weight, which in and of itself can help prevent cancer at several different sites.* Great recipe from the AICR.org. Tasty Mayo-Free Chicken Salad…

Louisville Mayor announces expanded recycling options

You may share Virginia Forest’s experience with recycling. She found that most of the stuff she once threw in her garbage could be recycled – if only it would fit in that tiny orange recycling bin. Meanwhile, like many of us, Ms. Forest found that her big, black tub for garbage was going practically unused. Well, Virginia is the first resident in the 8th and 9th districts with a new solution to that problem, thanks to an expanded pilot program in The Green Triangle.

ROI (Return on Investment): Health Enterprises Network Workshop

  By Barbara Day, M.S., R.D., C.N. Corporate Wellness in the 1990’s now called Employee/Worksite Wellness in 21st Century Before I started Kentuckiana HealthFitness Magazine in 1997, I taught employee wellness programs on weight management, cholesterol management, stress management and exercise at Anthem, Jewish Hospital Healthcare Services, PNC Bank, Bank of Louisville, First National Bank, Citizens Fidelity Bank, Brown Foreman, Ford, and an assortment of smaller businesses. When the stock market dropped, many businesses cut their employee wellness programs as a result. At the time, very little data was collected on outcomes.  As a result, no one knew if the…

Think Big Think Bold: EnterpriseCORP’s Signature Event

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  – Margaret Mead This is my favorite all time quote.  It’s important to me because everything we do in our society involves people working together to achieve something, some goal, some dream and this morning’s Signature Event by GLI’s EnterpriseCORP was all about bringing people together to bind not only just the talent of Louisville, KY but the funding to spark the entrepreneurial fire that will illuminate our city as a vibrant sector for entrepreneurial development in…
