Rusty Satellite 81 – Rachel Platt and Mimi Hwang

rs81MimiHwang rs81RachelPlattIt’s a busy week for the Rusty Satellite Show. First, I went to the set of WHAS-TV’s Great Day Live to talk with beloved anchor Rachel Platt. I’ve known Rachel for years, and was pleased to hear her story about how she came to be a local supporter of the American Heart Association.

For years, I’ve been seeing those Hwang’s Martial Arts buses and passing by their storefronts, so I decided to see what they’re doing right. Mimi Hwang runs the family business with her parents, and they provide a great resource for parents throughout Jefferson County with after-school programs. Mimi was born in Korea and started training in the martial arts at age 3 when her family moved to the U.S. I was intimidated by her black belt.

In the news, I was saddened that our community lost two great men — Jim King and Houston Jones. Teen runaways from Grayson County have captured the news media’s attention, and the Ark Park suffered another setback. A new report gives Kentucky straight Fs for its work in stopping smoking. Plus, there’s football and a lot of movies to see. All in another episode of the Rusty Satellite Show.

Rusty Satellite 75 – Jerry Ward and Tom Kapfhammer












It’s beginning to look a lot like. . . the end of the year, and Rusty hits another milestone this week with show #75. My first guest is Kosair Charities Chairman of the Board Jerry Ward, who is responsible for many good things going on that benefit children in our city. I happened to meet with Jerry the afternoon that we learned of the passing of Sam Swope, who did so much in his lifetime for Kosair.

Tom Kapfhammer had little choice but to enter the family business — he grew up busing tables at Buckhead’s. And despite earning a degree in Sports Communications from Indiana University, and working for the Louisville Bats, Tom chose to help grow the local restaurants. He shard a Christmas Ale with me on Wednesday afternoon overlooking the Louisville skyline.

I had several interesting news stories to talk about this week — the first being the good news that we, the taxpayers, won’t be providing financial incentives for a religious-oriented theme park. The tribunal for ex-Male High School principal David Mike is proving how difficult it is to fire someone at JCPS. And the University of Louisville is carefully considering a $6 million donation from the Koch Brothers and John Schnatter to make sure there aren’t strings attached that would affect instruction. U of L and WKU got bowl game invitations. And there’s plenty more on the 75th Rusty Satellite Show.
