By now, y'all should know that Chad and I are hosting a Cruise With A DJ, Fall Break 2015! We are heading out on the Carnival Elation, with two stops in Mexico and we couldn't be more excited! I've never been on a cruise and Chad has been on several, so he's my fearless leader for this trip. From the beginning of our planning process for the cruise (proudly brought to you by Henderson Chevy Buick GMC), he just keeps talking about his "Ship on a Stick". He decided to bring in his trophies and explain how he got them... I'm less than impressed.
Over the weekend, a 12 year-old was killed by a police officer in Cleveland. The 12 year-old was brandishing a replica handgun and was shot while being approached by the officer. This tragic event could have been avoided and the Evansville Police Department wants to make sure this does not happen here.
PLEASE, especially those of us who are parents, take the time to read this statement made by the EPD... It could save a life.
Last Thursday a cat named Apple came in to the station with our good friend John Austin from Sparky! All day Thursday and Friday my coworkers were telling me non stop that I needed to get this cat and take it home. So I made the call and gave Apple a forever home.
Here's a fun twist on mashed potatoes . . . just in time for Thanksgiving! This morning on our What's Cookin'? segment on The CB Radio Show, Mary Higginbotham, from the Daviess County Cooperative Extension Office, shared this amazing Kentucky Proud recipe! It's for Smashed Potatoes!
One second she was talking a mile a minute about how awesome Eric Church was in concert and how hot she thinks he is. The next second she literally crashed and burned! That's precisely the effect a 4-hour concert, 4 extra large draft beers and a dark Audubon Parkway have on WBKR's Barb Birgy. Seriously, on the way home from The Ford Center Saturday night, we truly lost The Barb! And we have the photos, in chronological order, to prove it.
Who saw the Eric Church concert at The Ford Center Saturday night? It was incredible! Eric played for two hours straight and this was definitely one the highlights. He turned his hit "Drink In My Hand" into a sing-a-long and the crowd went crazy and just belted it out with him. WATCH!
To be fair, this isn't the first time I've been involved in the Owensboro Daviess Co. Christmas Parade. I helped out the Time Warner Cable camera crew a couple of years ago. This was my first time being in the parade. And it was a blast!
It's the one night of the year where three of my favorite things are all together... football, good eatin' and music! Yep, the Super Bowl! Tonight, during the Sunday Night Football game, they made the big announcement about the halftime entertainment for Super Bowl XLIX and I am PUMPED!!
The Christmas Wish office will officially open in a week on Monday, December 1st in Towne Square Mall in Owensboro, but the letters are already rolling in. We want to make sure that everyone who needs a jolly little helper this year gets the help needed. If you or someone you know will need the help of CW this season, now is the time to get your letter in.
It's been a few weeks since my graduation from the Owensboro Police Department's Citizens Academy and I got our class photo picture from our instructor. I've always had an interest in law enforcement and knew I just had to attend the Citizens Academy when it began in August. Now, even thou I was excited, the 12 week course seemed a little much at first. Now that it's over, we were all wanting more time with the class.
Here are some of the most impressive things I took away from my short time with the OPD.
Remember Tomorrowland? It was--and maybe IS; I haven't been there in 30 years--the section of Disney World that featured Space Mountain but also a bunch of freebie rides that didn't require an E ticket or a C ticket or an A ticket, whatever.
It's no secret that Garth Brooks is a big fan of acoustic singer-songwriters, since he counts James Taylor and Dan Fogelberg among his biggest influences. But many fans probably don't realize one of his biggest hits was written by folk-rock troubadour Bob Dylan.
