Thruston Elementary School Reunion

Calling all Thruston Tomcats!  Calling all Thruston Tomcats!  If you attended Thruston Elementary, worked there, or taught there, I have exciting news for you!  We are ALL invited to a special THRUSTON SCHOOL REUNION, from 2 to 4pm, Sunday, May 15th at Yellow Creek Park!  You are asked to stop by and share some of your memories of the school and what life was like as a student there!  It's funny.  I remember my very first day of kindergarten and screaming bloody murder because I didn't want to get out of my mother's Maverick!  I think they literally had to drag me inside . . . and, now, I'm certainly glad they did.  My memories of Thruston school are special and, yes, HILARIOUS!

Osama Bin Laden Killed

 

For the last ten years, country radio stations have been playing the heck out of Darryl Worley's song Have You Forgotten? As a matter of fact, at our most recent WBKR Night at the Grand Old Opry, Darryl sang that song to a raucous standing ovation.  The reason that particular song still resonates so profoundly is that no one in the U.S. has forgotten the morning of September 11th, 2001, when, according to Toby Keith's Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue, "a mighty sucker punch came flying in from somewhere in the back!"   It was that day that "The Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist" and now, ten years later, "Mother Freedom" is "ringing her bell."  A major chapter in the War Against Terror is closed.  Osama Bin Laden is dead.

A View of the Moon and the Stars from West Parrish

Two of Owensboro's most popular dining spots sit side-by-side on West Parrish Avenue. Moonlite BBQ Inn and The Big Dipper are local legends and have been drawing folks in for decades. The funny thing is it wasn't until I was a young adult that I made the astronomical connection between their names. And then it occurred to me that they were only two-thirds of what was once a west end heavenly body monopoly.
