HEARING LOSS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA LEXINGTON MEETING

Nov 13, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Lexington Hearing & Speech Center, 350 Henry Clay Boulevard, Lexington, Kentucky 40502-1024
John Perry will present on Financing Options for Hearing Aids and other things an informed consumer needs to know. He will review current hearing aid technology, one feature is certain, be sure to ask the hearing professional to include a telecoil in your hearing aid. Also a review on the channels through which hearing aids are distributed, what you need to know as an informed consumer. Finally and very important, he will explore the options available to us to help finance this expense.
John was the 2009-2011 president of Hearing Loss Association of America Kentuckiana Chapter and is currently their treasurer. He first found out about his hearing loss at age 23 when he enlisted in the Kentucky Air National Guard. He would say that most of his hearing loss was caused by rock 'n roll, fireworks, cap pistols, model airplane engines and woodworking machinery. His hearing, along with his eyesight, was recorded as a “2” in his official physical profile. Fortunately, his having a “2” for his hearing profile did not keep him from his chosen field of weather. Jump forward twenty years plus and John’s hearing was getting so bad that he had to do something. He found the national Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) when it was still named Self Help for the Hard of Hearing (SHHH) and subscribed to the journal. It took him another two years before he was ready to go and see first a dispenser, second another dispenser and finally an audiologist. He bought his hearing aids from the audiologist. His only regret is that he had not accepted his hearing loss sooner and had done something about it. He continued to struggle with the challenges of his hearing loss. Though things have gotten better, John says he is still a work in progress.
The meeting is realtime captioned by Sworn Testimony, PLLC and is free and open to the public.
HLAA provides information about various technologies, services, products or organizations to our members for their examination. Inclusion of any technology, service, product or organization does not mean HLAA endorsement
nor does exclusion of these mean disapproval.

Azur Restaurant and Patio in Lexington
Author Steve Coomes will bring stories of the timeless Southern tradition of country ham to a special dining event at AZUR Restaurant & Patio Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. AZUR chef Jeremy Ashby, inspired by recipes in Coomes’ recently released book Country Ham: A Southern Tradition of Hogs, Salt & Smoke, has created a four-course menu highlighting the Kentucky delicacy. An avid cook of cured meats, Ashby will prepare some of world’s best aged pork while Coomes gives diners the rub on the regional history of country ham and its ascent from blue-collar staple to fine dining feature. The cost is $45.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Guests can also purchase a personalized copy Coomes’ book for an additional $15. For more information or to make reservations, call (859) 296-1007.

The country ham dinner menu includes:

First Course
Sautéed chicken livers with country ham, caramelized onions, Marsala wine and sage sauce and crackling cornbread crostini
Inspired by Volare chef Joshua Moore’s vitello saltimbocca with a Kentucky taste (Louisville, Ky.)

Second Course
Nashville hot-style fried quail stuffed with country ham and cheddar with sweet and sour greens, tomato-pepper jelly and hot fries
Inspired by The Hamery’s cheddar and ham cheese ball (Murfreesboro, Tenn.)

Third Course
Butter-braised cabbage with smoked country ham hocks and kimchee over potato-Gruyere puree and caraway-dusted chicharron
Inspired by Harper’s Country Ham’s ham hocks and cabbage dinner (Clinton, Ky.)

Fourth Course
Sweet and savory country ham-infused ice cream with sweet potato biscuits, sorghum and roasted apple caramel
Inspired by chef John Varanese’s sweet potato biscuits (Louisville, Ky.) and Feast BBQ chef Ryan Roger’s country ham ice cream (New Albany, Ind.)

Japanese Rakugo "Sitdown Comedy" Storyteller in English!

Lyric Theater, Lexington KY
Japan’s answer to stand-up comedy, Rakugo is a 400-year-old tradition of comic storytelling. As popular today as it ever was, Rakugo (literally “falling word”) has, until recently, had little exposure in North America, but that is all about to change. Canadian Katsura Sunshine, the only foreign storyteller among almost 700 practicing professionals today, aims to shine the spotlight on this ancient art form with his English translations of Rakugo’s classic stories.



Katsura Sunshine comes to Kentucky for the first time to perform this traditional (and very funny!) Japanese storytelling art!

An Evening with C.S. Lewis

Lyric Theater, 300 E. 3rd St. Lexington, KY 40508
Acclaimed British actor David Payne is bringing his wonderfully witty portrayal of Lewis to the Lyric Theater in Lexington on April 8 at 7pm. Tickets are $20, $30 and $40 for VIP seats which will also include a Meet and Greet with Payne.

A brief outline of the the show:

The year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home, just outside of Oxford.
They have come to hear a man whose writings have already established him as one of the most influential authors of his day and they are about to be treated to a display of powerful oratory and great humor as he recounts the significant events and the people that shaped his life.

"An Evening with CS Lewis" has proved to be an enthralling theatrical experience for the many thousands who have attended its performances and is a fascinating and riveting insight into the life of a man whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of 20th century.

ArtsPlace, 161 N Mill St., Lexington, KY 40507
Red Barn Radio Welcomes the Kevin Prater Band 3/19 at 8 pm
The band's music comes from a wide range of influences and musical heroes. They base their sound on strong vocal harmonies, built around high trios, and their style is reminiscent of the classic Seldom Scene and 1970's Country Gentlemen performances. They are also steeped in the tradition of Gospel music, and pride themselves on the a capella hymns and great gospel songs that people have come to enjoy. The band also includes classic country in their repertoire and loves bringing old familiar favorites to life. Add a little vintage rock and roll and you never know what else you might experience at a KPB show! The band members are great friends, and want to make great music. They look forward to traveling and meeting wonderful people across this great land, entertaining them with music and fun.
