Legislative Progress

The 2008 Kentucky legislative session is halfway over and so far, the House and Senate have passed far fewer bills than at this point in recent 60 days sessions. Gabe Bullard has more.

Genocide studies

Elizabeth Kramer visits a class of eighth graders who helped write legislation to make genocide studies available in Kentucky public schools and talks to local genocide survivors and educational experts about the significance of genocide studies.

Eating gluten-free

Imagine trying to manage your diet, without eating traditionally produced wheat, barley or rye products… foods with gluten in the flour. For those with celiac disease or other gluten sensitivities, it’s not only tricky, but often not very tasty.

Fortunately, the choices in gluten-free foods are growing, and the Rainbow Blossom New Albany Market is offering a chance to sample some, as well as meet others dealing with the same dietary restrictions.

Susan Sweeney Crum talked with the store’s manager, Mark Clark, about the upcoming Gluten-Free Tasting Fair.

Louisville Ballet

The University of Louisville has been hosting the largest exhibition of works by sculptor Frederick Hart. To mark this unique event, faculty composer Steve Rouse, was asked to compose a new ballet based on three of Hart’s most well-known sculptures: The Creation of Night, Ex Nihilo, and The Creation of Day. In collaboration with Steve Rouse, Graham Lustig of the American Repertory Ballet choreographed the ballet entitled Between Stillness for the Louisville Ballet. Bruce Simpson is the Artistic Director. The premiere takes place on the American Vanguards program February 29th and March 1st, 2008.

Blues history

Blues Music in the United States has a long history, with roots dating back to the early 20th Century. But many people may not know much about it. The Filson Historical Society in Louisville is dedicating an evening to Blues history, with music, instruments, old records and more this week. Susan Sweeney Crum spoke with Director Mark Weatherington about the “Blues Night at the Filson.”

Listen to the show.
