Owensboro High School 6-9 senior Aric Holman has made a change of plans concerning his future. After previously announcing he would reclassify to 2016 and attend prep school next year, Holman has now decided to sign and play at Mississippi State, thus going straight to college. Here's Holman along with OHS head coach Rod Drake announcing his decision Thursday morning at the Sportscenter.
Has anyone noticed how chilly it's been the last few nights? This phenomenon in Kentucky is not unusual. In fact, there are many types of "folklore winters". I've always heard of either a Dogwood or Blackberry Winter, but Linsey-Woolsey Britches???? No, but I totally get it.
Leigh Anne Tuohy is coming to Owensboro! The woman, whose story inspired the book and film ('The Blind Side') about her adopted son, now NFL offensive tackle Michael Oher will be speaking at the Owensboro Convention Center Saturday night, August 22nd at 7pm.
As part of the NHTSA's 2015 campaign "Click It or Ticket", the Owensboro Police Department will be placing extra patrol officers on the streets with the specific task of looking for seatbelt violations.
It's no secret I'm not a fan of remakes, reboots, etc. But the new CBS series 'Supergirl' is not really a traditional remake. I'll always be a fan of the the 1984 film flop of the same name with Helen Slater as our hero. Now, over 30 years later, we see a new Supergirl played by Melissa Benoist ('Glee') trying to hide her true identity working under a fierce female boss, played by Calista Flockhart (welcome back!), former 'Grey's Anatomy' star Chyler Leigh as her sister, tragedy strikes, and 'Supergirl' is off and running. Check it out!

It's 5:30pm-7pm.
A cool event is coming to the Kentucky International Convention Center begins this Friday. The Fourth Annual Louisville Tattoo Artists Convention will feature more than 250 of the world's best tattoo artists, including artists featured on the hit SpikeTV series 'Ink Master' and VH1's 'Black Ink Crew'.
There's only one thing I remember about the end of the school year, TESTS! In grade school, we used to take achievement tests. They were just booklets of multiple choice questions. It wasn't until I got to high school when testing became a little more serious. Since then, KERA tests have gone away and K-Prep tests are now the norm. The students and staff of Ohio Co. Middle School (one of my alma maters!) decided to get everyone ready with the help of some pretty famous folks, WATCH!
I had no intention of ever watching 'American Idol'. It wasn't until a co-worker of mine started telling me all about it. Plus, we had received this 8"x11" promotional poster of the top 10; by the time I started watching the top 10 had been whittled down to 8 I think. Well, as soon as I saw Kelly Clarkson sing, I was hooked and I knew she would win season 1.
You know the show 'Justified'? It took place in the Appalachian mountains of eastern Kentucky, however it was not shot there. On Thursday, Governor Steve Beshear signed House Bill 340 which will make the state more competitive in attracting film and TV productions, which will help create jobs, generate tax revenue, and attract more tourism.
79???? Wow! I know I don't look as old as I am; I'm 39 and I'll be 40 in October. There's a new website (how-old.net) that is brutally honest, not really, but it's fun to see what its analyzers come up with. Let's try a few others.
