Casper “Cap” Gardner was Owensboro’s mayor from 1954 to 1958. In 2007, an award was initiated in his honor to recognize city employees for outstanding service to the community. And for each of these past six years, Ms. Gayle Gardner–Mayor Gardner’s widow–has presented the award.

Yesterday, WBKR received this press release from the Owensboro Police Department:
