Dentistry From The Heart

3285 Blazer Parkway, Suite 200, Lexington, KY 40509
Pearson Justice Dental will host its second annual Dentistry From The Heart (DFTH) event – an event providing a day of free dental care to those in need, ages 18 and older.
It is anticipated that Dentistry From The Heart patients will travel from all across Kentucky to Pearson Justice Dental for this free day of dentistry, taking place from 9:00am until 4:00pm on Saturday, August 16th. The line may begin as early as the night before, and patients have been known to camp out for the services that will be provided.
In 2001, Dentistry From The Heart started with New Port Richey dentist, Dr. Vincent Monticciolo, as a way to give back to the community and provide aid to the growing number of Americans without dental insurance. Since its inception, Dentistry From The Heart has grown to include over 200 annual events worldwide. It is a registered non-profit organization that provides free dental work for those in need, and these events have provided more than 80,000 patients across the country each year with more than $8 million of free dentistry.
Pearson Justice Dental along with a team of dentists, volunteers, and sponsors will provide patients with a free extraction, filling, or cleaning on a first come, first served basis. This is the second DFTH event for Pearson Justice Dental.
“It all comes down to wanting to provide something greater to my community,” said Dr. Laura Justice. “The services provided by Dentistry From The Heart help more than just a patient’s teeth, they give them a renewed reason to smile.”
The media is invited to join the hundreds of volunteers, patients, and Pearson Justice Dental on Saturday, August 16th to spread free smiles across Lexington through Dentistry From The Heart, located at 3285 Blazer Parkway. For more information about the event, please visit www.dentistryfromtheheart.org or www.lexingtonkydentist.com.

"Capitalizing on Culture"

Pikeville, KY
Exploring how the National Park Service (NPS) “Discover Our Shared Heritage” Travel Itinerary Series might be put to use in Eastern Kentucky – and how innovative marketing of heritage tourism could reap huge economic returns – will be the focus of keynote presentations during the “Capitalizing on Culture” conference Aug. 1-2 in Pikeville.

Other sessions will examine place making, economic development through historic preservation, benefits of nonprofit advocacy, pumping life back into traditional downtowns, cemetery preservation and genealogical tourism, and identifying themes that can help the region link unique places and create heritage tourism opportunities by telling an authentic story.

The third entry in the 2014 Kentucky Preservation Series, “Capitalizing on Culture” is presented by the Kentucky Heritage Council/State Historic Preservation Office (KHC), Shaping Our Appalachian Region (SOAR) and Community Trust Bancorp Inc. Other presenting partners are Preservation Kentucky Inc. (PKI), the Kentucky Main Street Program, Friends of Kentucky Main Street, Pikeville Main Street Program, the City of Pikeville and Pike County.

This free, two-day conference will take place at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2.

Don Wollenhaupt, chief of interpretation and education for the NPS Southeast Region, will kick off the Friday program using African American history and Civil War sites to illustrate how a travel itinerary can be packaged and nationally branded to facilitate a well-rounded experience. A panel discussion will follow with representatives from Big South Fork National Park, the Lewis and Clark Trust, Daniel Boone National Forest and the Kentucky African American and Native American heritage commissions.

The Friday panel will include Phil Osborne, president of Osborne and Associates in Lexington and chair of the SOAR Tourism, Arts and Heritage working group. “Kentucky – especially the Appalachian Region – is so steeped in history and culture that many take it for granted. I see tremendous opportunity in nurturing that tradition of history, heritage and culture into its own tourism sector,” he said.

“Anything our SOAR working group can do to help push that concept along will be a welcomed challenge. The reward will be in the risks we take to bring that story to new generations of Kentuckians and to those who have migrated elsewhere who need to understand the deep roots that helped make them who they are today.”

At 1 p.m. Saturday, Griffin VanMeter of Bullhorn Creative and Kentucky for Kentucky will discuss the work he has done for his North Limestone neighborhood in Lexington and how place making helps define communities. This will be followed by a panel discussion with entrepreneurs from several successful eastern Kentucky small businesses.

Also Friday will be a discussion on preservation advocacy led by Betsy Hatfield, PKI executive director, followed by a roundtable discussion with representatives of regional and local preservation nonprofits discussing how their efforts have lasting benefits. The day will end with a free reception hosted by Preservation Kentucky, and free tours of historic sites associated with the Hatfields and McCoys.

Other Saturday presentations will examine cemetery preservation and genealogy-based heritage tourism, the National Register of Historic Places as a heritage tourism tool, state and federal rehabilitation tax credits for historic buildings, and Kentucky ArtPlace and Our Town, two programs that were the subject of a Kentucky Arts Council conference in May. Grant recipients who have benefited from these programs gathered to discuss opportunities to connect creative arts communities across the state, and two eastern Kentucky sessions will include recaps of that meeting as well as broaden the discussion to include anyone interested in building stronger communities and stimulating economic growth through arts and cultural engagement.

For a complete agenda, see http://www.heritage.ky.gov/news/2014caponculture.htm

Hampton Inn of Pikeville is serving as the conference hotel, with rooms available for $94 per night through July 23. For information or reservations, call 606-432-8181.

Red Barn Radio Welcomes My Brother's Keeper

Lexington, KY 40507
Moved forward from last week's power outage:
RED BARN RADIO WELCOMES MY BROTHER'S KEEPER 07/02 8 PM.

Growing up together, and surrounded by music, My
Brother's Keeper has played music together for years,
but not under this official band name. MBK was raised on
the genres of Folk, Bluegrass, and Gospel, so the
growing popularity of Folk music, lead by bands such as
Mumford and Sons and the Lumineers, only opened a door
for MBK to take the music they love to eager audiences.
However, MBK does not limit themselves musically,
influenced by bands of many different genres and
backgrounds. MBK strives to seek inspiration anywhere
and use it in an original manner. MBK consists of
brothers Benjamin, Titus, and Joshua Luckhaupt on
guitar, mandolin, and fiddle respectively. Wyatt
"Sawmill" Murray completes this ensemble on the upright
bass. With original music that draws inspiration from
Bluegrass, Rock and everything in between, MBK strives
to be unique as well as listenable. MBK features tight,
four part harmonies, rock driven lead vocals, blazing
solos, and complex and interlaced musical interludes. In
an effort to be unique and open minded, and bring a
fresh blend of Bluegrass to new audiences, My Brother's
Keeper has presented itself as one of the fastest rising
Bluegrass bands on the scene of Cincinnati music.

RED BARN RADIO WELCOMES 5 STRING THEORY 06/18 at 8 pm.
They met each other at gigs and have been together about
two years. They have all played with other bands, and
they all love Bluegrass music, but also like all other
kinds of music, especially Swing and old Country -- They
will always include a couple of swing tunes in their
show. 5 String Theory is Greg Breeding, Ron Mobley,
Marty Harley, Jesse Pena and Terri Powell -- Bluegrass
music and more!
