By Joe Wilson — On May 25, UofL announced it is partnering with the UofL Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute to build a new campus in downtown Louisville. Named the New Vision of Health Campus, the facility will advance research on environmental impacts of health. Located on West Muhammad Ali Boulevard, the campus will consist of two buildings and a garden totaling 133,000 square feet. This expansion of UofL’s campus comes alongside the financial contribution of Christina Lee Brown, a health advocate from Louisville. Brown plans to give $30 million over 20 years. Moreover, Brown will allow the rent-free use of buildings to the university, a $17 million in-kind donation. In sum, Brown’s financial support totals to an estimated $47 million, marking the largest philanthropic gift in UofL’s history. In addition, UofL said Aruni Bhatnagar, the director of the UofL Envirome Institute and professor of medicine, will lead the research. The UofL Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute was created in 2018. Since then, the Institute has studied the transmission of COVID-19 and the health impacts of smoking and vaping. The Institute also began the Green Heart Project, which studies Louisville’s air quality impact on health. Brown said she hopes the new research will increase health equity. “To grow from our past and promote long, fulfilling lives, we shouldn’t chase any single cause. We live in a complex, interdependent world where history is our shared legacy and health is our shared aspiration. By honestly recognizing our common stories, we can frame a new vision of health which unifies us. It can inspire healthier lives, healthier communities and a healthier world.”

EYBL Louisville Preview – PowerMizzou

By |2022-05-26T07:28:04-04:00May 26th, 2022|COVID-19|

For the first time in three years, PowerMizzou is traveling the AAU circuit this spring and summer. The COVID-19 pandemic ended the 2020 season before it began, and last year, media weren't allowed to attend most AAU events. We caught up with a few Mizzou targets at the Under Armour Association event in Kansas City last month. This weekend, we'll be in Louisville, Kentucky to watch the third stop of the talent-rich Nike EYBL.The return to normal comes at the perfect time, as Dennis Gates is trying to revamp Missouri's recruiting. Since being hired, Gates and his staff have extended a slew of offers to prospects in the classes of 2023, 2024 and 2025. While coaches will not be allowed to attend the event in person as it falls during a quiet period on the NCAA recruiting calendar, we should be able to catch up with quite a few of those prospects in Louisville this weekend. The following is a list of players we expect to see. Games will be played Saturday through Monday. Stay tuned for comprehensive coverage throughout the weekend. GET THE INSIDE SCOOP EVERY DAY WITH YOUR PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION! Five-star point guard Isaiah Collier is among the players with Missouri offers who will be in action when the EYBL stops in Louisville, Kentucky this weekend. Class of 2023 Page just took a visit to Missouri last week, and he talked with us about it afterward. The forward has boosted his stock quite a bit already this spring. He has also visited USC and plans to visit Cincinnati next week. Page's teammate both at Wheeler high and with The Skill Factory on the EYBL, Collier could wind up being the top point guard prospect in the 2022 class. He's currently leading the EYBL in assists at 6.5 per game. Mizzou assistant C.Y. Young was recruiting him for Florida State and has continued to do so since being hired by the Tigers. Assuming we're able to talk to Collier this weekend, we should get a better idea of how realistic the Tigers' chances of landing him are. It is worth noting that Page told us that he and Collier would like to play together at the college level. Gapare is an intriguing prospect. He grew up in New Zealand and was initially a member of the 2022 class. He was once committed to George Washington but has since backed away from that pledge and reclassified to 2023. Now, he's got a litany of high-major schools pursuing him, including Missouri. He plays for Team Melo on the EYBL circuit. Robinson is another prospect who Young became familiar with while he was at Florida State. The point guard prospect plays for the Georgia Stars and has picked up new offers from Georgia, SMU and Missouri since the start of the EYBL season. Royal is an athletic wing who had a big month of April, when he landed new offers from Michigan State, Wisconsin and Rutgers, in addition to Missouri. The Columbus area native also has an offer from Ohio State. He plays for All Ohio Red on the EYBL circuit. Another Florida native and another athletic wing, Burks is off to a strong start to the AAU season. He has landed new offers from the likes of Texas Tech, Marquette, DePaul, Xavier, Ole Miss and Mississippi State, in addition to Missouri. He plays for the Florida Rebels. Full disclosure: We are not sure at this point whether Gates and his staff are actively recruiting McBride, who picked up a Missouri offer and took an official visit to campus while Cuonzo Martin was the head coach. But we plan to watch him play for the Drive Nation squad and get the latest on his recruitment this weekend. Class of 2024 Bol has shown why he's a top-50 prospect in the 2024 class, as he's played up on the 17U team for MoKan Elite so far this spring. Despite standing 7-foot-2, Bol has reportedly shown the ability to space the floor. We'll be excited to see his game firsthand. Givens also plays for the Kansas City-based MoKan Elite, albeit for the 16U squad. The Memphis native will play his high school ball for national powerhouse Montverde Academy next fall, so it's probably a good thing that Missouri is in on him fairly early. Givens' former teammate at the Memphis University School, King also plays for the MoKan Elite 16U squad. Thomas is arguably the headliner for a loaded 16U squad for the Brad Beal Elite program, which is based out of St. Louis. His long offer list already includes the likes of Arkansas, Illinois, Memphis, Texas Tech and Auburn. McCullum and Miller play alongside Thomas on the Brad Beal Elite 16U team, giving the squad a formidable collection of long, athletic forwards. Class of 2025 While he just finished his freshman season of high school, Davis-Ray already has an impressive offer list that includes Illinois, LSU, Texas and Texas Tech. Missouri jumped into the mix on April 30. We should get our first glimpse of Davis-Ray as he plays for the Team Griffin 16U squad. McKenney has been receiving high-major offers since before he even started playing high school basketball. The Michigan native plays on the 16U team for Bates Fundamentals. Rowe doesn't yet have a Missouri offer, but we've been told the Tiger staff has been out to Tolton Catholic to watch the Columbia native since being hired. Rowe, who does alredy have offers from Tennessee, Kansas State and Saint Louis, among others. He will play alongside Givens and King for the 16U MoKan Elite squad.

Grant helps revitalize garden at Louisville community center in a 'food desert' | News | wdrb.com

By |2022-05-25T23:21:50-04:00May 25th, 2022|COVID-19|

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The garden at the California Community Center needed some work after falling into disrepair during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fewer people were using the space, and the garden suffered as a result.Dr. Shawn Gardner, the CEO and founder of 2not1 Fatherhood and Families, reached out to the community for help."There was a beautiful garden already here, however, because of COVID, things just went down hill," Gardener said.But after rallying support, the garden is ready for summer."It's a beautiful sight to see," Gardner said.Thanks to a grant from the Cigna Healthier Kids for Our Future, Norton Children’s Prevention and Wellness was able to help revitalize the garden space. Volunteers spent Wednesday working with 2not1 replanting the garden with everything from potatoes and peppers to cucumbers and herbs."We recently started addressing food insecurity," said Nikki Boyd, coordinator at Norton Children’s Prevention and Wellness. "When we came out to this space, we noticed we had these fabulous community gardens that just needed a little bit of love."Boyd said food insecurity is about the lack of access to healthy foods like fruits and vegetables and the lack of ability to pay for it."When we think about Louisville and places that are food deserts, we think about food injustices," she said. "We have to have healthy, nutritious foods to grow up healthy and strong."The garden will be maintained by the community and will provide a free source of fresh vegetables to those in the California neighborhood. The hope is to provide a source of fresh food in a "food desert" in west Louisville and teach young children about where their food comes from and start building healthy habits at a young age.Copyright 2022 WDRB Media.

"But I'm very excited. I'm hoping to get a couple awards that I applied for or that I know I put my name in for." Caufield hopes to become a historian and minor in Latin at Indiana University. She believes many in her class will go on to do great things. Copyright 2022 WDRB Media. All Rights Reserved.

By |2022-05-25T18:22:49-04:00May 25th, 2022|COVID-19|

Hundreds of veterans and veteran supporters are traveling thousands of miles across the country to honor military family and friends. For Ed Ricord, who served 34 years for the U.S. Army Special Forces, this is much more than a road trip."Every overpass that we have seen there's been people standing there. One to a whole community standing on top of the overpass waving flags. That makes 34 years worth it," said Ricord.It's part of the "Run for the Wall." People ride from California to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC to honor veterans who have been killed, missing in action, or were prisoners of war.Organizers say almost 400 motorcyclists rode into the Robley Rex VA Medical Center in Louisville from all over the U.S. Participants say the ride is about building connections and honoring those they love and have lost."It's a very emotional time, and we're all there to support one another and to lift one another up as we honor our fallen brothers," said Ted Kapner, Run for the Wall Director of Public Relations and Communications.Ricord says it’s one last run for the country’s heroes."We ride for those that can't. That's the big thing. We ride for those that can't," said Ricord.The ride was canceled the last two years because of COVID-19. The riders are expected to arrive in Washington, D.C. on Friday. LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Hundreds of veterans and veteran supporters are traveling thousands of miles across the country to honor military family and friends. For Ed Ricord, who served 34 years for the U.S. Army Special Forces, this is much more than a road trip.

U of L health research institute plans downtown campus with $47 million gift | In-depth | wdrb.com

By |2022-05-25T18:22:50-04:00May 25th, 2022|COVID-19|

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville plans to establish a new downtown health research site with the largest financial gift in school history.Philanthropist Christy Brown announced a $47 million contribution to create the Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute’s New Vision of Health Campus at two buildings and a vacant lot her family owns in the 400 block of West Muhammad Ali Boulevard.“This is a commitment once again to the heart of the city,” Brown said at a news conference Wednesday morning.Her support includes $30 million for the institute’s work and $17 million in rent credit for UofL. Brown previously provided $5 million to start the institute in 2018.The university’s board of trustees agreed to a lease that lets UofL use the property. The Brown family would pay for renovations to the buildings and rent them to the university for $1 a year, said Ted Smith, director of the institute’s Center for Healthy Air, Water and Soil.The institute studies the relationship between the natural, social, and personal environments and health. Its work has included monitoring levels of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in the city’s wastewater to better understand the virus’ prevalence.The campus proposed for downtown also would be accessible to the public. It would include Founders Square at 5th Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard, where Smith said research on “urban greening” and vegetation in cities could take place.The institute also plans to have roofs on the buildings that will retain rainwater and help the structures cool themselves, as well as a “vertical park” on the side of one building that would catch water and send it to the aquifer and not MSD’s treatment plant, Smith said.Mayor Greg Fischer's proposed capital projects budget recommends $6 million in bond funds for those projects. The Metro Council continues to analyze the mayor's request. In addition, Smith said people will be able to walk inside the buildings and see researchers at work.“It's really to enable this public interface and bring some of the science to the public — not secret science behind closed doors — but visible tangible science that is relevant to an urbanizing world,” he said.UofL estimates the first research facilities could move into the new space in the next 12-18 months, with the entire project operational there within three years.Copyright 2022 WDRB Media.

Kentucky-Louisville basketball rivalry game set for Dec. 31 at Rupp Arena, per report – 247 Sports

By |2022-05-25T19:23:52-04:00May 25th, 2022|COVID-19|

The annual rivalry game between Kentucky and Louisville is set for Dec. 31 at Rupp Arena, according to a report Wednesday by CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein. The game scheduled for the 2021-22 season was canceled due to COVID-19 issues. The game represents the first head-to-head coaching matchup between Kentucky's John Calipari and Louisville's Kenny Payne, as Payne worked for Calipari as an assistant from 2010-20 before departing to the NBA to serve as an assistant for the New York Knicks. Ahead of Kentucky's NCAA Tournament opener against Saint Peter's, Calipari was asked about Louisville's hire of Payne. "First of all, he is a dear friend, and I will tell you that they could not hire anybody that will do a better job than Kenny Payne," Calipari said. "Great coach, great human being, great husband, great father. Louisville graduate." "They get him, they got the best of the best." Calipari is 11-3 against the Cardinals since being hired by Kentucky ahead of the 2009-10 season. He sure is looking forward to the rivalry getting a bit more spicy with Louisville's addition of Payne. "Look, it's one game a year, who cares," Calipari said at the time of the rivalry. "It's life and death. I'll jump off a bridge — what? It's one game. I've said it for 13 years. They — look, they've been to national titles, they've won national titles, Final Four, ready with what I'm gonna tell you? With different coaches. It's not about the coach. That program is one of 'the' programs. They deserve a coach like Kenny Payne. "I will say this: As a coach, as a man, as a husband, as a father, who is into basketball, will be in the gym at 11:00 at night. If that's who they name, they made the right choice. I wish they would have made it four years ago, you know, but, you know what? He's getting an opportunity, if he chooses to take it, at a great institution and in our state. State of Kentucky deserves to have both programs. And we played in the Final Four together." Payne has been on the job for just over two months, and he is hard at work to get Louisville back to prominence. Get the fastest scores, stats, news, LIVE videos, and more.

"It's been a little bit of a whirlwind, just digesting all of the things that need to happen to be successful here," Payne said earlier this month during a one-on-one interview in his office with Cardinal Authority. "From the players to the community to the administration trying to digest all of that and do what's best for this program and get it started off on the right foot." Cardinal Authority and CatsPause.com contributed to this report.
