Owensboro on YouTube: The Construction of Owensboro Health Regional Hospital in Under 2 Minutes [VIDEO]

Rome wasn't built in a day. Check. And neither was Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. Got that, too. But now you can see three years of construction on the new hospital occur right before your eyes--in less than two minutes--courtesy of this webcam time lapse video.

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!

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.
