Miss Daviess County Pageant Crowns First Ever African-American Winner

My friend Angela Oliver lives here in Owensboro.  She actually moved here from Atlanta a few years back to write for the Messenger-Inquirer.  She's strikingly beautiful, charming, smart, sweet, funny and black.  I tell you she's black not because it matters to me.  I tell you that detail because, in the context of this story, it's the most important one.  Because she's black, Angela has never really felt at home here.  She and I have discussed this on several occasions and she has shared stories with me that leave my mouth open.  Angela routinely chronicles her experiences in a Facebook blog called "The Adventures of a Black Journalist in a Predominately White Town."   And, honestly, I think some you would be surprised and horrified at some of the things that people say to her.  They aren't overtly racist in their vocabulary and approach, but they have subtle, sometimes artful ways of reminding Angela that she's different and doesn't really belong here.  But something happened over the weekend, something subtle, that signaled a possible change in the tide.  This predominately white town crowned its first African-American Miss Daviess County.

My Night with Dolly: Chad Sees Dolly Parton in Concert at the Ryman [Video]

You know you're a legend when Reba McEntire has come to see you in concert.  And that's exactly what happened Saturday night at the Ryman in Nashville.  Dolly Parton was playing her second of two sold out shows and there, in the front row in the balcony, was Reba McEntire.  There, in the third row of the balcony, was me.  And I sat there for one hour and 40 minutes just blown away by this bigger-than-life presence that had taken the stage to bring over 2,000 fans to their feet . . . to tears . . . and to the temple of country music, where legends still truly do exist.

Brett’s Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials 2015

So the Patriots pulled it out last night, hung in there, fought hard.  And for those brief moments at the end where everything fell apart.... it was sad to watch.  A few other things that were hard to watch were some of the commercials that played.  It seemed the majority of the ads were well thought out and tugged the heart. I love that.
