Louisville Steve, a Glass Act

The Louisville Art Gallery reopens and starts off 2005 with an all glass show
this Saturday

March 12th, 6:30 - 10:00pm on the main floor titled


This show features Ed Fennell from Crystal Forge along with some other area glass artists. If you have ever been to the Gallery, you know Ed's work. He has created more than 30 new pieces for this show, form very small to very large and all sizes in between, including some great hanging lights with hand-blown shades.

Joining Ed will be some other Crystal Forge glass blowers including
Matt Shrader, Chris Kemp and 13 year old Tyler Barry.

Gallery volunteer Gerry Klein will be displaying her fused, slumped and stained glass. Fun, colorful, decorative and functional, too.

Gallery regular James Bond (yes, that is his real name) has created some great new wall panels with his oriental calligraphy using his reverse glass painting technique.
His work is exceptional and a great addition to any decor.

Kay Young from the Swerve Gallery in Blair, Nebraska will be showing in the Gallery for the first time. Kay creates beautiful hand painted glassware. All pieces, though not intended for everyday use, are functional and can make a great statement for that occasional special dinner or event and can serve as decorative focal points.

As always, the reception will feature some great live music. Dave Barger returns with bass player Jerry Steinky to provide some cool instrumental musings, and if you do not need to get right home after the opening, Dave Barger and the Jam Masters will be playing right across the street at the Goodtimes Bar after the show.

Stop on over for some great blues and whatever else they may decide to play.

...One last thing...
If you know anyone who would like to open a restaurant in a great little town, please encourage them to Take a Look in Louisville.

You can have them contact me directly, as I am a city council member and a member of our local businesspersons group known as B.U.I.L.D. and will help them in anyway I can in getting started.

With three State Parks, the SAC museum, the Aksarben Aquarium and the drive through Safari Park all within 15 minutes, this is a great location for a family eatery.

I guess that's all folks. Hope to see you on Saturday night!

Make plans now to attend the Alumni Banquet, which will be held on May 28,2005. It will be held again at the Louisville High School Gymnasium.
Watch for details coming soon and start gathering your classmates for special class recognition. The Banquet is what we want to make of it.

The committee has done a terrific job the past few years, and each class can make it better by working with their own class to attend. Hope to see you there.

TREE PROM0TION: By Brian Schmeling on Thursday, March 03, 2005

The deadline for submitting tree-planting applications is nearing.
OPPD is encouraging nonprofit groups, organizations and area schools to consider new tree-planting projects that can be undertaken this year.
Through its Tree Promotion Program, OPPD sponsors such projects for community groups, schools, nonprofit organizations and clubs in its 13-county service territory.

OPPD hopes to see a wide assortment of projects from every part of OPPD's service area. These types of projects can really make a difference in a community, especially our rural communities, and OPPD would really like to see more of them apply.

Started in 1990, the Tree Promotion Program has helped plant more than 100,000 trees and shrubs, helping to beautify public property and conserve energy. The program also promotes the proper selection, placement and maintenance of trees, especially around overhead power lines.

To qualify for a tree-planting sponsorship, applicants must submit an application, complete with a planting plan that meets program guidelines. Those interested can obtain an application and a copy of the guidelines by calling 1-877-536-4131 or from OPPD’s website. (http://www.oppd.com). The deadline for applications is March 15.

What the Cat Saw...
Hi Hardware Cat Fans!

Frying Up the Good Stuff!
You know, this time of year can really get you down. Happily we are all done with February, man that was a snoozer. Talk about boring; try spending the day watching Larry and Maureen inventory the roofing nails, and spackle. (Yawn!)

But things are starting to pick up. I heard that Auctioneer guy talking about Iris's and I KNOW that the mouses just love Irises, so I got THAT to look forward to!

The really big news is the Fish Fry! (Meow!) Every year about this time, good Ol' Larry brings me a kitty bag with some scraps, and man that is great eating! It's got something to do with the season of Lint, I think that is when everyone changes their dryer filter...

Now FREE you can visit the hardware store and request to pet The Cat!
(subject to Cat mood and availability)
There is even a sign on the door, to let folks know, that this is the place!

Being a Cat, and all, I get to hear All the latest news and what folks are thinking about. That Ol' Dan Henry is sure a hard working son of a gun. People just can't say enough about how nice and sharp this Ol' river town is looking these days. Every time you look up, there goes Dan and his City guys, sprucing up Main Street, or along the Highway. Makes a Cat proud to be a Lion!

Having fun, and Wait'n for Mouses south of the river....

Hank the Hardware Cat
