Pride and Prejudice

The Phoenix Theatre’s Sunburst Youth Theatre Proudly Presents
Pride and Prejudice
Adapted by Joseph Hanreddy and J.R.Sullivan from the novel by Jane Austen
Directed By:  Jonathan Goldstein, best known as Walter from Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh
Sponsored by: Scotty’s Construction, Modern Woodmen, and The Community Foundation
August 21-24
School Day August 26
Marriage is an inevitable fact of life for the five Bennet sisters -- Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia. With the family estate entailed away to their closest male cousin, their only hope to advance in life is to find a rich and single man -- and one has just arrived in the form of the very handsome and very well-off Charles Bingley. The kindhearted and beautiful Jane seems poised to make a match, but must contend with her overly zealous mother, his snobbish sister, and a slippery social ladder. And when Bingley's taciturn friend Fitzwilliam Darcy shows an interest in the opinionated and spirited Elizabeth, the situation becomes more complicated than either of them expect. The fire and wit of Jane Austen's classic 1813 romance shines through in this vibrant new adaptation.

United Way of Southern Kentucky is looking to engage community members across Southern Kentucky to create a shared vision for the future and set goals for collective action. In order to accomplish these goals, United Way is reaching out to community members to share what they want for their community by identifying those issues that are of most importance. One of the ways in which this is being accomplished is through a survey that United Way is asking all community members to complete.
“We no longer want to make assumptions as to what the right thing to do is and we want to do more than create quick fixes.  We want to hear from everyone, and have been out in all ten counties of the BRADD area listening to community members and learning about their hopes and dreams along with the concerns and challenges being faced by so many. The survey is another opportunity for community members to voice what they would like to see their community become and the challenges that are standing in the way.  It is our hope that the results of these surveys combined with 55 Community Conversations and intensive research data will help us understand how we can create real, lasting change within our community,” says Beth Stroud, Director of Community Impact for United Way of Southern Kentucky.
United Way’s goal is to have 5,000 surveys completed by August 31st. So far to date, over 4,000 surveys have been completed.  Information gathered will allow United Way to focus on and develop an action plan aimed to create lasting change around the issues in which community members have a vested interest.
To complete the brief survey, community members living in Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren counties can log onto the United Way of Southern Kentucky website at and click ‘Take the Survey’ on the home page. Responses are sent directly to United Way and are anonymous.

2nd Annual Stable Soirée Dinner & Auction

Helping handicapped individuals gain a sense of personal confidence and freedom is a worthy cause.  Doing so while enjoying an evening meal with entertainment makes for a great event.   

New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding, Inc. (“NBTR”) is holding its 2nd Annual Stable Soirée Dinner & Auction on Saturday, September 27th at Pine Spring Stables. The venue is located at 600 Bill Ferguson Road in Bowling Green. The Silent Auction begins at 5:00 p.m.; Dinner from a local restaurant will be at 6:00 p.m. followed by a Live Auction and Entertainment.  The NBTR horse barn will be creatively decorated by Ivory Grace Event Planning.   

"All proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefits our program and our mission to serve individuals with disabilities through the power of the horse," said Michele Vise, Executive Director of NBTR. "Our operational budget comes directly from community support, and not from participants' fees."  Event tickets are $65 per person, and sponsorship opportunities begin at $500.

Each day many challenged individuals benefit from the certified instruction received at NBTR. To discover the good work being done there and to learn more about obtaining advanced tickets or sponsorship opportunities for the Stable Soirée Dinner & Auction, please visit their website under Schedule of Events; follow them on Facebook or call. "We have been blessed with great support in the past, and hope to gain more as people discover how therapeutic riding helps grow a stronger community," Vise said.

New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding is a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization dedicated to serving individuals with mental, physical, behavioral and emotional disabilities by enhancing their lives through the power of horses. The rhythmic motion of a horse allows those with limitations to enjoy the same freedoms we often take for granted, as it helps improve balance, muscle strength and flexibility. Riders at NBTR are involved in activities that promote gross and fine motor skills, cognitive ability and social skills. This process ultimately helps each individual gain self-esteem, confidence and coordination in all aspects of their daily lives.

If you any questions or want to help with this fundraising event, please call NBTR Board Member, Lauren Marley at (502) 609-7503, email at or Board Member, Jackie Reynolds at (270) 202-9114, email at

Corvette Museum Sinkhole Viewing

Corvette Museum Media Alert

Guests offered opportunity to enter Skydome for close look at sinkhole

February 12 the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY was handed a lemon... a 40' wide by 60' deep lemon to be exact. What the Museum did, in turn, was even more unexpected than the sinkhole itself. The Museum turned the misfortune into a tourist attraction.

"We started with a Plexiglas viewing window so guests could see the construction going on inside the Skydome, and eventually the recovery of the Corvettes," said Katie Frassinelli, Marketing and Communications Manager at the Museum. "We always had one web cam available inside the Skydome, and due to the growing interest and popularity we added two more so our online visitors could get additional angles to view what was going on."

The interest in the damaged Corvettes continued to grow as did the Museum's attendance, so much so that the Museum decided to leave the sinkhole for the summer, and delay construction until after their 20th Anniversary Celebration August 27-30. "We have about 6,500 Corvette enthusiasts from all over the world pre-registered for our event so far, and many of them have expressed an interest in seeing the damaged cars as well as the sinkhole. Determining the best method for repairing it and getting bids on the construction work has been a time consuming process also. In the grand scheme of things, we felt it would be best to delay construction a few months to give all of our visitors the opportunity to see it."

NASCAR Team Owner Rick Hendrick snaps a photo of the Mallett HammerAttendance at the Museum since February has been up nearly 50% over the same time period in 2013. Many guests have expressed that while they came to see the sinkhole and damaged cars, they were pleasantly surprised by the rest of the facility and Corvette displays.

"Driving up I-65, I saw the sign for the museum and decided to make a stop but had fairly low expectations given it was a roadside attraction. I was pleasantly surprised by the facility; it was very modern, well themed, professional staff, and it was much larger than I expected with a gift shop and restaurant," wrote Mark Byrn of Orlando, Florida in a Trip Advisor review. "Even more impressive was the fact that the museum suffered extensive damage from a sinkhole, and they turned a negative into a positive by making the sinkhole into an attraction of sorts and displayed the Corvettes that were heavily damaged. Overall I was very happy to have made the stop."

The Museum is awaiting price estimates on the various options to repair the Skydome, from keeping all of the sinkhole, to leaving just a small portion of it, to restoring the building to the way it was before. The Museum's board of directors is scheduled to convene on June 25 to review the proposals and options on both the building and the "Great 8" Corvettes, and make a decision on the plans moving forward.

The Corvettes that are not restored will be kept on display in the Museum's Skydome, as part of preserving and telling the story of the February 12th sinkhole collapse.

Given the recent boost in attendance, the Museum is expected to hit its 3 millionth visitor within the coming days. As of May 31, 2014 the Museum has recorded 2,995,655 visitors since its Grand Opening September 1994. In celebration of the milestone, the Museum will be awarding their 3 millionth visitor with a special "Walk of Fame" engraved sidewalk brick with their name, one-year membership to the Museum, $10 Corvette Cafe gift certificate, $50 Corvette Store gift card, Flint Brick and article in the Museum's membership magazine, "America's Sports Car."

The Museum is located at I-65, exit 28 in Bowling Green, KY - just one hour north of Nashville, TN and less than two hours south of Louisville, KY. Open daily, 8am-5pm CT, admission to the Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors age 65 and over, $5 for kids age 6-16 and children age 5 and under are free. Access to view the sinkhole is included with regular admission. Guests who enter the Skydome to view the sinkhole must be age 8 or older. For more information on the Museum, visit their website at or call 800-538-3883.
