With snow on the ground, it's hard to think about warm summer days but here I am already stressing about where to send my kid for summer camp!
One of my favorite things to do in summer is to visit Land Between the Lakes in Western KY. What a fun time we have camping by the water. But one thing I notice is how treacherous the water can be for boaters. We've seen several near-misses and heard of countless tragedies. As a kid, I grew up on Myrtle Beach and we had a boat we'd take into the ocean. Let's just say, I loved my dad but never felt totally safe on our boat among the waves.
If you plan on boating this summer, consider attending a boater safety class. It's always better to be safe than sorry!

See Inside the Mt. Vernon Home Rumored to be Part of the Underground Railroad
Located at 917 Mill Street in Mt. Vernon, less than a mile north of the Ohio River, there are a few different rumors of how the Robin Hill home was involved in helping slaves escape to the North. One rumor suggested there was a tunnel underneath the home slaves would use to pass through after getting off a boat on the river. That rumor has been debunked
, but there once was a creek that ran near the home which was so overgrown with plants it looked like a tunnel. It is believed slaves used the creek as a pathway as they headed north. The home's current owner, Brian Alldredge, says he heard someone who lived or worked at the home during that time period would hang a colored blanket over the balcony to let those assisting the slaves know whether or not it was safe to pass with one particular color providing a green light, so to speak, and another warning there were people in the area looking for runaway slaves (some people in the North were known to capture slaves and send them back to the South).
The home went through a $700,000 remodel from 2001-2008 which included a new foundation and main support walls, all new floor joist and floors, new roof, new windows, and new drywall. It's currently for sale on Zillow
with an asking price of $412,500
