Breeders’ Cup Is Back
In the coming weeks, The Voice-Tribune will focus on the best that the 2011 Breeders’ Cup World Championships has to offer, including exciting, inspiring and humorous stories about the horses, their owners and trainers, world-renowned jockeys and even a celebrity or two.
For the second year, Breeders’ Cup will take up residence at Churchill Downs for two days and offer guests from near and far – and they do come from far – an up close ‘n’ personal look at one of the most exciting sporting events I’ve witnessed. We can expect more of the same on Nov. 4 and 5. If you have the opportunity to go, I encourage you to attend. Still on the fence? I promise, we’ll do our best to convince you of that in the weeks ahead.
The Voice-Tribune crew is working hard to provide fresh, new content online on a daily basis. If you get a chance, check it out.
Designer/Photographer Chris Humphreys is now writing a blog called “Weekly Favorite.”
Designer Joanna Hite Shelton pens an online column called “The Catch-all.”
News Editor Jacob Glassner – fittingly – is the author of a blog titled, “News & Notes.”
Staff Writer Ashley Anderson shares her views on her blog, “Between The Lines.”
And I post online-only entries regularly – most often from my iPhone – in “The Dish.”
We’ve also relegated some of our content to print-only pieces. Among them: Home of the Week, “The Party Line” with Carla Sue Broecker and “The Social Side” by Lucie Blodgett.
In this week’s issue, we debut a new column that is unlike any other we’ve printed: It’s written by a 12-year-old and will be a weekly feature through November.
The author of “Talia’s Love 4 Life Project” is a seventh grader who is concentrating her Bat Mitzvah project on the topic of organ donation, an issue that’s near ‘n’ dear to Talia, as she will tell you in her own words. Speaking of those, I promise you they are her own. All of them. That was part of the agreement we made when she decided to partner with The Voice – and we with her – after we sat down for a fairly serious 30-minute discussion not unlike those I have with experienced adults who want to work with us at The Voice. The only difference is our meeting ended with a hug. Couldn’t help it. Click here and you’ll see why.
