Semis Will Keep on Truckin’…Just Not Through Downtown Owensboro

Hopefully, the woes of the weary trucker won't be exacerbated too much now that heavy truck traffic has been re-routed around downtown Owensboro. It has become necessary to have the three-plus axle haulers or the 40,000 pounders--if not one in the same-- removed from the complicated Second Street equation. Even during the most minimal traffic situations, downtown Owensboro is kind of a nightmare while the Riverfront Crossing project continues at Second and St. Ann.

It’s a Country Music Summer at Gaylord Opryland Resort

It was another awesome live broadcast from the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. I usually get to do two a year--one in the summer, one around Christmas time. Last summer, the hotel was still recovering and rebuilding from the flood that devastating much of Nashville in May 2010. I was able to return last November and this past Thursday I was joined on the air by the director of public relations for Gaylord Opryland, Jenny Barker along with marketing and PR coordinator Rob Regg. They shared all the scoop about Country Music Summer at Gaylord...and a sneak peek at what we can look forward to this Christmas.

A Kentucky Girl in Indiana

I've done a lot of traveling in the past two weeks most especially to portions of Indiana that I've passed through but never really stopped in for a walk and a talk. Luckily the RC Cola Challenge has opened up an opportunity for me to not just pass through but stop in and visit too.

Chaney’s Dairy Barn — A Fun Place to Visit

One of the most fun places (and delicious places, too) to visit in the Owensboro area is Chaney's Dairy Barn and Restaurant in Bowling Green. A really family-friendly establishment with not only great food but music and a movie, or as they say a "moo-vie". Monday Chad and I spoke with Carl Chaney abou

Embalm Your Pennies, Oh the Places You Will Go

A few years ago, I checked on how much it would cost a family of four to spend a week at the Orlando Disney Megaplex. After putting my eyes back in my head and lifting my jaw off the floor (I beat the 5-second rule), I asked my mother how it was possible for the four of us--her, my dad, my sister, and me--to go to Disney World and spend a week when I was a kid. She told me that it was a combination of income tax returns and Dad's old embalming machine. Yes, you read that right.

Vacation All I Ever Wanted

Taking vacations are a rarity for yours truly.  And 99.9% of my vacations are taken with my family, and there's nothing wrong with that.  I don't always jump at the chance to go somewhere for an extended time period with my parents.  However, I wanted to this time because my sister and her husband were going.  This was probably the last time before my sister Hillary gives birth to her first child in August that we would all be able to get away one last time.  So where did we go?

Chad & Sam’s “Safari” To Holiday World!

As you guys know, Holiday World is #1 for family fun!  But I'm not sure I have ever had as much fun as I did last week when I took Sam the Intern over to Santa Claus and cut him loose at Holiday World!  We rode roller coasters, the bumper cars, the Liberty Launch and even had time to take in a friendly (or not-so friendly) game of Skee Ball!  And, the best part of it all, WE HAVE VIDEO!!!  Ladies and gents, I present to you . . . Sam's Safari to Holiday World!  Fasten your seatbelt (I had to!).  It was a bumpy ride!  LOL!

A Burr (lew) Under My Saddle

Memo to the Burlew Boulevard-New Hartford Road intersection: You have seen the last of Dave Spencer! It does not matter to you that I might be in a hurry. It does not matter to you that it's the middle of the workday and I need to get back to the station. In fact, I'm under the impression that nothing matters to you if it as anything to do with me and my Hyundai. (Cue the music.)

Sunday Drive Part II: Turtle Crossing (and Other Animal Adventures)

As my nice, relaxing, and hot Sunday drive continued, I ventured into Hancock County on Highway 105. As I rounded a curve, I saw this little guy (well, not so little) trying to cross the road. As someone who used to have a turtle as a pet back in the day, I always try to get 'em off the road if I can. Of course, when you're on a blind curve, you run the risk of becoming some Peterbilt's hood ornament. But anyway...

Sunday Drive Part I: The Signpost Up Ahead

This past Sunday, when there was no flooding rain and no tornado warning, I felt it was time to hit the backroads. I think, over the years, I've covered about all the ground you can cover in a car in Daviess County. Yet, I still see things worthy of a snapshot, like the railroad crossing in the accompanying picture; it's located on Yelvington-Grandview Road just past Maceo. Notice anything about what's in the picture that kind of stands out?
