Goodbye Jacob

News Editor Jacob Glassner is leaving The Voice-Tribune.

The Voice-Tribune’s News Editor Jacob Glassner wrote his first story for the publication in 2003. Two years later, he was hired on as a full-time staffer. Next Tuesday, he’ll embark on a whole new venture when he leaves The Voice to join the staff of the Southeast Christian Outlook.

We’re happy for Jacob and know the already-talented staff of the Southeast Christian newspaper will be enhanced by his presence.

Jacob is an incredibly intelligent, rock steady, cool-headed editor who never complains and always refrains from uttering terse words, even when deadlines and production pressures begin to boil. He’s also funny and witty and often impressed the staff with little known facts and trivia – he is a Mensa member – and how he could go from talking as if we were in academia to waxing poetic about something silly in pop culture.

We’ll miss him for a variety of reasons, but what I think we will miss most is how kind-hearted he is.

Thank you, Jacob, for all you contributed to The Vocie-Tribune. (We’ll be playing Wil Heuser in the office all day Tuesday in your honor.)

Morning VoiceYour Morning Voice

We recently started a new weekday feature called Your Morning Voice, and it’s getting great reviews.

At the start of each day, we post a quick-hit entry with links to some of the most interesting stories, from news to entertainment to everything in between.

Bling & Things

Last week was filled with a flurry of events, including Fifth Third Bank Butterflies & Bling, presented by Glasscock Boutique and Optik by Korrect. Although the fashions were, of course, fabulous – as were the Heyman Talent models – my favorite part of the night had to be watching the little ones from Heuser Hearing & Language Academy walk the runway at the start of show. Congratulations to Mary F. Glasscock, Fashion Show Event Chair Todd Calvert and Sug Schusterman, who directed the show.

BIG Thanks

I owe a big thank you to Voice reader Phyllis Reed Johnson who heard I was emceeing Big Brothers Big Sisters inaugural BIG Masquerade last weekend and offered to let me borrow one of her creations. “I know you’re running crazy with Breeders’ Cup (preparations) and thought this would be one less thing for you to worry about,” the talented designer told me. That simple act of kindness by Phyllis is one of the reasons why I love the people of Louisville. I often miss my family – most of whom live in Michigan – but then a relative stranger reaches out and reminds me I’m part of an incredible community of people who genuinely care about each other in big ways and small.
