Matt Duffy, who runs Duffy's Training Center for dogs out in Jeffersonville, is impressed by David Benson. “I like the company of animals much more than I like the company of people," Duffy says. "My good friends, my family, I love them, but I wasn’t nearly as empathetic toward the human condition as David has been all his life." Benson, who became Duffy's lead trainer at the center, didn't expect his love of dogs to take him much further.

Jump ahead to the present, where Benson's nonprofit, Dogs Helping Heroes, is steadily growing, pairing dogs with vets, first-responders and Gold Star families. It all started a few years ago, when he got a call from his sister that led him somewhere he hadn’t planned on going, which in turn led him to Trayce Harmon and his mom, Wendy Dickens; to Darren Bennett and the golden-eyed Hoss; to John Wells and Johnny Cash; to scores of inmates in a Kentucky prison; and, in the last few years, to a growing number of other men and women who say their lives will never be the same because of his work. And the funny thing is, it all sort of started with cats.

You might recognize her from the west Louisville bar that shares her name — or from the cover of our August 2018 issue. Sylvia Arnett — Miss Syl — has brought good vibes to the sometimes troubled Russell neighborhood for nearly three decades.
~
Syl's Lounge sits on West Broadway, low-lit and feeling like a 1960s Harlem dive. Red light bulbs give the faded wood bar, stained-glass lamps and weathered wood paneling an otherworldly glow. The place is bathed in the familiarity of a family reunion, with boisterous greetings, sudden bouts of dancing and hints of heavy perfume and dry-cleaned Sunday best. A laminated sign taped to the glass front door reads “Age 35 & up only.” As one Facebook post put it: Syl's Lounge “is where the grown and sexy party at.”

It’s hard to avoid #bourbon in the wake of the boom. But a small number of distillers are branching out into other veins of the spirit world. @jepthacreed distills vodka and moonshine using their own non-GMO, open-air-pollinated corn. @prohibitioncraft names its various products after Louisville neighborhoods: Phoenix Hill Vodka, Baxters Rum, Highlands Gin, an agave called NULU. And @fortuitousunion is just that — a happy accident after 12-year-old rum was mistakenly dumped in a vat of five-year-old rye whiskey.
