Revisit Owensboro’s 2000 F-3 Tornado [Video]

I remember January 3rd, 2000 very well.  It was a holiday here at WBKR studios and I had worked for a couple of hours early that morning.  By that afternoon, it was sunny.  Our temperatures were hovering near 80 degrees and I was ready for a big afternoon nap.  That nap was cut short.  Cut short by blaring emergency alert sirens ringing through Owensboro-Daviess County.  I jumped out of bed and headed for the station.  I knew if a storm was going to hit, that's where I needed to be.  Boy, did it hit.  And Wayne Hart, like he is always, was in his studio with the play-by-play.  Check this out!

Mirko Pasta Now Open in Owensboro

I love food.  I especially love Italian food.  And I love any chance I get to eat somewhere new.  So, Friday night, I dropped by the brand new Mirko Pasta location at Wesleyan Park Plaza here in Owensboro to give it a try.  Oh my goodness.  I love pasta anyway.  But at Mirko all the pastas and sauces are handmade.  I had apple, sage and sausage ravioli with pesto sauce and it was ridonkulous!   In fact, I'm not sure how you say "ridonkulous" in Italian, but I may have to figure it out now .  So, what is Mirko Pasta and where did it come from?  Honestly, before the sign went up at the Owensboro location, I had never even heard of it.  So, I did some digging and found out a little history about Mirko.  Check it out!
