Have you ever wondered what you can do to help prevent breast cancer on a more personal level? The Susan G.

A combination of good weather, great location, and a community that always cares could explain the overwhelming turnout for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in downtown Owensboro yesterday afternoon. Very inspiring.
Barb Birgy is out and about today doing what she does best....fighting for a good cause. She is broadcasting live on J.R. Miller Blvd. behind Huck's with a huge crew of cooking volunteers who are preparing BBQ chickens, Boston butts, and ribs.
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of visiting Daviess County Middle School and speaking with Mrs. McCollough's 7th Grade Family and Consumer Science classes!
