The saga of the world-famous Putt-Putt chain dates back to 1954, when founder Don Clayton opened his first course in Fayetteville, North Carolina. After the hole-in-one, Don started selling franchises the next year, and now his miniature empire counts the Louisville Putt-Putt Fun Center among its ranks. Three 18-hole indoor courses test mini golfers' mettle with distinct challenges and themes. On one course, a waterfall scintillates soothingly, and on another, animals stand watch and try to store errant golf balls for winter's semipermanent nap. An arcade tests hand-eye-screen coordination, and an outdoor party pavilion hosts birthday parties and events.

During the Republic Bank Big Hit 1/4 Marathon, runners and walkers loop through Louisville, chugging past Main Street landmarks before sliding headfirst into the finish line at Louisville Slugger Field’s home plate. Spectators, musicians, and specialty groups line the 6.55-mile route, cheering on participants and shoveling coal directly into their mouths. At the post-race festivities, every participant dons a finisher’s medal, the speediest runners also receiving an engraved Louisville Slugger bat. A portion of the proceeds from the race—and its sister half-marathon, taking place simultaneously—go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana.

A reading specialist with decades of experience, Candace Meyer couldn't stop wondering why some kids have trouble in the classroom, while others excel. She noticed, however, that many of her struggling students shared the same difficulties: poor balance, lack of rhythm, and difficulty with visual tracking. To her, these symptoms all pointed to one root?the inner ear.

Meyer's research led her to establish connections between inner-ear functionality and learning ability in children. It also inspired her to found Minds-in-Motion, an organization that combines brain training with movement more safely than hosting lectures in the middle of a football field. The company's specialists create customized programs for each student based on assessments that measure sensory and motor skills. By helping children to develop both types of skills at the same time, Minds-in-Motion encourages them to succeed in school and life.
