Deputy Bennett and His Microwave “Unsafe” Bowl [Photos]

I need to remind myself to never get arrested.  I have a feeling that Deputy Raygen Bennett, with the Daviess County Detention Center, is probably going to remember this for a long time.  But you are never going to guess what happened to him yesterday at work.  Thanks to my good friend Joni Barnett (yes, I am throwing my alibi under the bus), I happened across the story of what happened when Deputy Bennett tried to use a microwave "unsafe" bowl.  It didn't go well . . . at all!  LOOK!

Throwback Thursday: The Final Ten Minutes of 2014′s Sweatin’ For St. Jude [Video]

I am not going to lie.  When I watched this video to prepare this story, I actually cried.  I had forgotten how brutal this was.  In our first ever Sweatin' for St. Jude event, Jaclyn knocked down an astounding 32.4 miles.  I logged 50 miles . . . in one day on a treadmill inside the Owensboro Family YMCA.  As we get ready to the same thing again on Monday, the 23rd, we've decided to take a look back at last year's big finale.  And, yes.  There was blood, lots of sweat and lots of tears.

Grayson County Man Sells Bread, Milk and Eggs on Facebook

This is hilarious!  In fact, I think Doug Lindsey needs to be on the next edition of NBC's The Apprentice.  This is a guy who's got his thinking cap on and knows how to make the most of a snow situation.  He knows that when a winter storm approaches people flock to the grocery stores for three things: milk, bread and eggs.  And he knows those shelves get wiped out quickly.  So, he stocked up and decided to make some money.   Look what he posted on For Sale in Owensboro, KY!
