Haunted Kentucky Hospital to Become Four-Star Hotel

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky was used for over fifty years to quarantine tuberculosis patients, most of which met their brutal demise inside the hospital. It was shut down in 1961, after a successful antibiotic against TB was discovered, but reopened again in 1962 and used as a geriatric facility until sometime in 1980.

NCAA Bracket Invitations=Panic Attack

I don't how it happened, but "March Madness" snuck up on me this year. This week, I received at least three email invitations and one Facebook message to get in on an NCAA pool. The good thing about joining an online pool is, you usually don't have to make a monetary investment and you can win some sweet prizes, including money. But isn't spending money to make money the honorable thing to do? I fall for it everytime.

Dave Spencer Has a Ghostly Encounter on a Bowling Green Bridge [VIDEO]

My sister gave me a cool book for Christmas called "Weird Kentucky." It's full of odd facts, strange happenings, bizarre history, and generally kooky information about the Bluegrass State. It also lays out the locations where you can go to encounter ghosts.

‘Bluegrass & Backroads’ Premieres Sunday Morning on KET [VIDEO]

I want Bob Schrader's job! And if I can't have that one, I'll take Matt Hilton's. Actually, it wouldn't be a good idea for either of those events to come to pass. Bob and Matt are the creators of "Bluegrass & Backroads," a KET program that explores the qualities, lives, and stories that are unique to Kentucky. As you know, I love to travel. And these guys get paid to do it!  Without them, we wouldn't have one of the coolest shows on television.

Planned Bill Monroe Film Isn’t the First Time Kentucky Has Gone Hollywood

Or maybe I should say it isn't the first time Hollywood has gone Kentucky. It's one or the other. Maybe it's both. But as we await the arrival of the Bill Monroe movie, I thought it would be fun to take a look at other films that have been shot or partially shot in the Commonwealth.
