Growing up, our vacations alternated between Florida and New Mexico, where many members of my mom's side of the family STILL live.

Most, in fact, lived in a town called Silver City, about the size of Tell City. I bet I went there five times before I ever knew what they meant when they referred to Elephant Butte.

Other references over the course of my visit meant to nothing to me until I was visiting as an older teen and young adult and finally got it.

But that's my point. Every city, town, and village has those people, places, things, and ideas that make them unique. And Owensboro is no different.

So check out a list of things every Owensboro knows, or at least should.
