Rusty checked out a new retail shop in the Highlands this week, and met the very eclectic and interesting proprietor, MaLynda Poulsen. Her shop is open during Bardstown Road A-Glow on Saturday, and has a special charity that’s going to benefit. Find out why she chose Louisville over all the other places she could have moved to from Boise. I hope you get to make it down there Saturday.
Longtime Louisvillians like me remember Denny Crum’s awesome teams in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and it’s nice to see the Coach is a winner in retirement as well. Coach Crum has an office at the University Club and is a great ambassador for the University, while spending plenty of time on charitable work and, of course, fishing. Hear wheat he has to say about the unfortunate end of the Joe B. and Denny Show, a staple on AM radio for a decade.
In the news, a report from the 55,000 Degrees organization includes some troubling numbers, and I’m not surprised based on conversations I’ve had recently. It’s not good to have racist attitudes, and it’s even worse to put them on display through social media. A Norton Healthcare worker found that out this week and lost her job. I got to talk with some state legislators about their priorities for the January session. And Rusty Satellite alumni Coyote Calhoun, Steve Wiser and Anthony Lamas were in the news, in a good way. It’s all in the 74th episode of The Rusty Satellite Show.
