The Donut Dash 5K Set for Downtown Owensboro

Special Olympics Kentucky has cooked (or baked) up a good reason to spend the morning of Valentine's Day in downtown Owensboro.  February 14th marks the annual Polar Bear Plunge, which will take place for the first time at Mitch McConnell Plaza.  But this year, in addition to shaking up the Plunge, Special Olympics is bringing a new event to town to go with it.  It's the Donut Dash 5K.  Yep!  It's a 3.1-mile run through downtown Owensboro that allows you to collect donuts as you go!  Check this out!

National Dress Up Your Pet Day [Photos & Video]

January 14th is National Dress Up Your Pet Day!  So, naturally, Brett and I decided to do our part in making the day special for pets and pet owners everywhere.  We called up our friend Joanie at Halloween Havoc and picked out some runway-ready outfits for our dogs and cats. (Okay.  We know this sounds insane, but work with us.)  Brett's cat, Bronson, worked the camera like a champ.  Like James Bond. Like Daniel Craig with a furball and a catnip addiction.   My dogs, Wilma, Dolly and Ellie, worked it like they were trying to make the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition or, better yet, the centerfold in a Larry Flynt magazine.  LOL!  Check out the photo spread and the bonus video which features my dogs absolutely destroying Wilma's lime green tutu.

Kentucky Wesleyan Singer Nadia Wilkes Featured in WBKR’s Denim & Diamonds Concert [Video]

Denim & Diamonds, our annual concert fundraiser for St. Jude, is coming up Friday, January 30th at Theatre Workshop's Empress Theatre in downtown Owensboro.  And I am personally thrilled this young lady is joining us.  Oddly enough, I first heard Nadia Wilkes singing at the KWC tennis courts.  Lol!  Not lying.  My friend Craig and I were playing tennis and, all of a sudden, we heard this voice just booming from across the parking lot.  Turns out, it was Nadia and she was ripping the song "I Am Changing (from Dreamgirls) a new one.  I literally chased her across part of KWC's campus and invited her to be a part of this year's show.  Here's a sneak preview of what you can except.  This girl can sing her face off.
