Katie Molck Contributing writer Many animals have passed through my front door in the last 10 years. Strays, rescues, foster dogs that never left. Some had medical issues and most had behavioral problems. Through- out it all, my veterinarian, Dr. Missy Jewell, has never, ever told me my fears about the animals were unfounded, or my questions too idiotic for her to answer. She has been instrumental in helping with the animal-welfare projects I've been involved with. She has sat on the floor with me while we euthanized my pets whose time on this planet had come to an end, and cried with me as we marveled at the very thin line that separates this life and the next. She is as thorough with a pet whose owners live on the street as she is with one whose owners live far off it. She doesn't judge either one. To her, all animal lives are sacred, and every human, no matter the circumstance, is deserving of their love. Julie Crutcher Business director This spring, I witnessed my four-year-old con- quer a fear in real time. Wearing her Wonder Woman swimsuit, toes curled over the edge of the Jewish Community Center's indoor pool, Emilia clapped five times, said "I can do it this" Who deserves a Best of Louisville Award? out loud, and launched into the deep end. She rolled onto her back and into the "star- fish" position, just like Scotty taught her. Josh Moss Editor I only go to Noosh Nosh sporadically, but the bar manager always remembers my to-go order: turkey sandwich without the pumpkin butter or cranberry chutney, add lettuce, tomato and mayo, and include a side of mayo for my Parmesan fries. Brooke Wyrosdick Operations assistant The guy in the Germantown Kroger deli with the funky glasses invented by an old optometrist. Joyce, the Stockyards teller who has deposited my checks for more than a decade. The guy at Keith's Hardware who is a little saucy but always quick and accurate. And last but not least, my neighbor Don. (I hope it's Don. I know you share a name with my uncle, but I have an uncle Ron as well.) Suki Anderson Art director My academic advisor at U of L, Sarah Spring- er, has dealt with my shenanigans of figuring out what I want to do with my life. I probably wouldn't graduate if it wasn't for her. Megan Brewer Editorial intern
