Air Force Supercar coming to the Barbecue Festival

I am a huge car fan! A classic muscle car or a shiny new pick-up truck can turn my head in an instant. I enjoy going to car shows, reading car magazines, and working on cars. Anything to do with cars, it catches my attention

City of Owensboro Skate Park Meeting

I am excited to hear that the process is moving forward for a skate park in Owensboro. I use to enjoy skating as a child but where I grew up, there were very few places to safely skate. For this reason, I am very excited about a skate park in Owensboro!

The City of Owensboro is holding a public meeting tonight at 6:30 about the skate park

Apollo High School’s Project 88

“Giving a little more” is something that most athletes and fitness experts know all about. They know that to get to that goal or to make the team, they have to push themselves. And I would be willing to bet many of us “non-athletes” can throw in a something on this topic as well

Chad And Jaclyn Run The Mud Run Course: Part 1 [VIDEO]

The Owensboro Mud Run is THIS Saturday at Diamond Lake Resort. This event is going to be awesome! Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society and you can still register.

Chad is always coming up with crazy ideas that I basically have no say-so in and running this course beforehand is his latest! We went out to Diamond Lake Tuesday afternoon and actually ran the entire course! (I'm still sore, I have blisters and my left leg is jacked up!) Although all of the course wasn't constructed yet, we scaled a 6 foot wall (well, I basically face-planted), we crossed grown-man monkey bars, attempted the cargo net and Chad even got in the water for those three obstacles. Watch and be prepared to laugh!

Time To Fly A Kite

Now that spring is finally here (or at least has made an appearance), the thoughts of outdoor activities have started popping up! And with the wind we have had the last few days it might be a fun idea to go fly a kite!

Well, that is the idea that West Louisville Elementary School had as well! P-3 students will create three different types of kites, come up with hypotheses, and conduct experiments to determine which design flies best

Fallen Soldier Returns Home [VIDEO] [PHOTOS]

US Army Sgt. Michael Cable's body returned home Thursday morning. The Philpot 26 year old was killed while serving in Afghanistan last week.

Community members joined together this morning to show their support for Sgt. Cable and his family by lining up along the route from the airport to the funeral home.

I will never forget watching the processional of official vehicles, Patriot Riders and other organizations leading Sgt. Cable's body and family and close friends down Frederica Street. Three veterans stood with us in front of the station and seeing their reaction was very emotional. We tend to take for granted the freedoms what we have and the men and women who protect those freedoms. Sgt. Michael Cable and all that serve our great nation can never be thanked enough for their service.
