Linda Allison-Lewis combines traditional and gourmet dishes, offering recipes from all parts of the state and from beloved restaurants and inns.

In the December 30, 1967, edition of the weekly Thoroughbred trade publication, the Blood-Horse, was an announcement that took up one inch of space—James E. “Ted” Bassett III had been named assistant to the president of the Keeneland Association. It was sandwiched between equally short news items about a handicapping seminar at an East Coast racetrack and a California vacation trip by a horse-owning couple. Bassett’s new job, in his own words, “was not earthshaking news.” More than four decades later, Ted Bassett is one of the most respected figures within the global Thoroughbred industry. He has served as Keeneland’s ...Read More

How to choose the investment that will give the best return is a problem faced by all businessmen. Yet for the small businessman in particular, the literature on capital budgeting intended to help him in his investment decisions seems not to apply to his actual situation. Here in this study, theory and practice are brought together within the context of small business.
Author Martin B. Solomon Jr. compares two theoretically sound formulas—present value and the discounted rate of return—with simpler methods of calculating the returns on investments. The superiority of the refined methods, he points out, is practically nullified under ...Read More
These studies, which originated from research on approximately 100 firms earned on at the University of Kentucky under a grant from the Small Business Administration, are an empirical examination of decision making in the small firm.

Solomon, will be published at a later date.
Pricing Decisions in Small Business points out that pricing is more flexible but ...Read More
