Amazing Footage of West Liberty, KY Tornado [Video]

YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS!!  My Facebook friend, Nathan Nelson, posted this video yesterday.  It's of a massive funnel cloud swirling overhead in West Liberty, KY.  As you know, that town was hard hit by the twister you are to see.  But what makes the video even more powerful is the woman in it.  She stands underneath this monster storm, her hand extended up to it in ferocious prayer.  She is literally trying to will the beast away from her house and town.  This is one of the coolest videos I have ever seen.  It truly looks as if it's ripped right out of the movies.  WATCH!

Wednesday morning, I was awoken by a 1-800 call which I later figured out was my local news station calling to warn me! 'What telemarketer is calling me at 5 in the morning,' was the thought that formed in my head. I dismissed it but when my cousin called me from Sacram

Moderate Severe Weather Risk Is Lousy News, Can’t Be Too Prepared [VIDEO]

David Ball To Appear at Casino Aztar’s ‘Hoosiers Lounge’ This Weekend [VIDEO]

Boy, was I wrong--to the tune of more than a million singles sold. And that's back when you had to actually go to a music store and buy the single. Now, I'm thinkin' he'll have quite a few fans arrive for his free shows this Friday and Saturday at the Hoosiers Lounge at Casino Aztar.

1985 AL MVP Don Mattingly Trades in Baseballs for Ballet Slippers – Performs in Evansville Ballet’s Nutcracker as Mother Ginger

This weekend, former New York Yankees first baseman and current Los Angeles Dodgers manager, Don Mattingly put down the balls and bats for something a little more sweet – he played the part of “Mother Ginger” in Evansville Ballet’s performances of The Nutcracker.
