Heuser The Giraffe

The Voice-Tribune’s longtime social columnist Carla Sue and her husband Brad Broecker have a new addition to their family: a 20-foot tall giraffe named Heuser. The big fella was carved from a tree Brad dug up from his uncle’s Shelby County farm 40 years ago. The pin oak was struck by lightning last year, which essentially killed it. So the ever-savvy Broeckers commissioned Tim Gill, a carver from Peoria, Illinois. Three days later, Heuser emerged.

Kosair Trust For Life Cookout

In 1992, the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks created a public outreach program that involved asking every person obtaining a license or state ID to donate $1 to promote organ donation. Those dollars go into a trust – the Trust For Life. Twenty years later, the Circuit Clerks have raised more than $7 million for organ donation awareness, and 36 percent of Kentucky residents are now registered organ donors.

The Clerks celebrated this accomplishment on Oct. 7 with a cookout at Kosair Charities Center. The free and casual event included remarks by Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes and comedian John Richardson, who is also a kidney patient. The new Kentucky driver’s license and new organ donor icon were also unveiled at the event.
