"Eight Faces"

Southern Indiana native Matthew Duffy had a natural rapport with animals from a young age, working as a mounted trail guide for a local riding stable at age 13. He studied behavioral psychology at Indiana University Southeast and completed a comprehensive professional dog trainer's course in 1980. Soon afterwards, he became the head trainer at a prominent kennel in Louisville, KY. In the mid-1980s, he established his first training facility, Advanced Training Kennel Inc. Duffy currently owns and operates Duffy's Dog Training Center LLC in Jeffersonville, where he and his staff of trainers oversee instruction of hundreds of dogs and their owners annually, using his proven training approach of establishing canine self-control. Duffy has worked with the Floyd County Police Department as a K9 handler and is a member of the United Schutzhund Clubs of America. Duffy has trained thousands of dogs over the past three decades in family obedience, handicap assistance, search and rescue, illicit drug detection, AKC competition and Schutzhund sport. In 2012, Duffy established WhiteFangVentures.com, a groundbreaking, interactive training website that offers a wide array of online resources for all dog owners.

His new book "Eight Faces" serves as a companion to his first book that outlines his own unique, core obedience training methods, "Ten Natural Steps to Training the Family Dog: Building a Positive Relationship," published in 2011.

Duffy's new book provides a second tier of instruction to complement traditional family dog training, targeting specific problems related to aggression, regardless of breed or age. He has trained dogs as old as 14-16 years old with great success.

 

CARE

Nick Osborne, the Vice President of Program, Partnerships, Learning and Advocacy for CARE discussed their relief efforts and the dire need of the people of the Philippines.

Typhoon Haiyan was one of the worst storms in recorded history, with an estimated 10,000 feared dead and affecting 9.8 million people.  Leading the effort to help those survivors is CARE, which is mounting an effort to deliver food, water, shelter and other essentials to the Philippines. This is likely to be one of the biggest international emergency relief efforts in years for the organization. To learn more, visit www.care.org.

 

Spinelli's Pizzeria

In the late 90's with no work in the Philadelphia area, Mr. Brian Gaughan was lucky enough to get a job in Louisville, Kentucky. It was not long after, Brian realized that he would not get the type of food he grew up on. No-one delivered anything after midnight and he missed the "Old Diner Style" restaurants, where you go out to the bars and then go to hang out with friends and meet new ones. It took him a few years, but he had a vision. Not wanting to move back to Philadelphia, and creating a life for himself here in Kentucky, he decided to bring a little taste of Philly back to the Ville. The Baxter avenue location opened in September 2004, five days after his 30th birthday and the Dining room opened in 2006.

He now has several locations, which are open 7 days a week from 11am-5am with delivery until 4:30am. Their locations are:
