Raining in Rain


The map said Rain would be right where Knox and Whitley counties bump up near Goldens Creek. There’s a community there, all right, and it was raining, dogs if not cats, but nobody within a good mile or so had ever, ever heard of the town called by that name. Which didn’t mean the townsfolks had nothing to say. At the Peace Grocery #2, men who had lived around these parts forever sat on an old church pew, looked out on the green lush landscape around them and ruminated on the dilemma of the never-heard-of-town-name, so much rain this year, the president of the United States having a beer this week with strangers and why they can’t get rid of their wives. Except that, of course, Clarence Peace, also known as “Hunk”, never has had one. Photos by Charles Bertram/Words by Amy Wilson

SummerFest’s Once on This Island


SummerFest closes out its 2009 season with the musical Once on This Island by writer Lynn Ahrens and composer Stephen Flaherty. The musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl in Haiti who believes the gods spared her life so she could save a rich boy, Daniel, and fall in love with him. The production is directed by Margo Buchanan. Performances are July 22-26 at the Arboretum on Alumni Drive. Photos by Rich Copley | staff.

Feature: UK Opera students spend summer exploring musical theater in Once on This Island.
