Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

The Woodford County Historical Society speaker for Thursday, Feb 22 at 6:30 pm is Tammi Johnson of Project USS STRONG DD 467. This event is free and open to the public.

Ms. Johnson will be discussing the project, life and death of her great-uncle William C. Hedrick, Jr. The Project began as research to honor her great-uncle Billy, an Ensign and Junior Communications officer aboard the destroyer USS Strong DD-467. Billy died in performance of his duties on July 5th of 1943 in the Solomon Islands. Her goal is to see the sacrifices of these men are not forgotten and to bring proper recognition to the ship and her crew.

She has spent decades researching the ship, her crew, and deep sea exploration. The results of which are a book written by author Stephen Harding, The Castaway’s War, detailing the history of the ship and the survival of Hugh Barr Miller, Jr. Also, there is the increasing probability of an expedition to the Solomon Islands to find the USS Strong along with shipwreck hunter David Mearns of Blue Water Recoveries, LTD. With 2018 being the 75th anniversary of the sinking of Strong, it’s important to never forget.

1:00 – 4:00 pm – Met Opera – La Bohème, at the Grand Theatre Frankfort, KY, 308 Saint Clair St

The world’s most popular opera returns in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production, with a series of exciting casts. Angel Blue, Anita Hartig, and Sonya Yoncheva (left) share the role of the fragile Mimì, with Dmytro Popov, Russell Thomas, and Michael Fabiano alternating as the poet Rodolfo. Alexander Soddy and Marco Armiliato share conducting duties.

Production a gift of Mrs. Donald D. Harrington

Estimated Run Time
2 hrs 55 mins

World premiere: Teatro Regio, Turin, 1896. Met company premiere: Los Angeles (on tour), November 9, 1900. La Bohème, the passionate, timeless, and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris, can stake its claim as the world’s most popular opera. It has a marvelous ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings. At first glance, La Bohème is the definitive depiction of the joys and sorrows of love and loss; on closer inspection, it reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.or this ride.
