How often have you given someone from out of town directions on how to get somewhere in Owensboro?

How many times, when you've done that, have you run into friendly complaints about how many of our numbered streets are broken up all the way through town.

"No, not THAT part of 26th. The section over on the EAST side."

Hey, back in the day, 12th Street actually TURNED INTO 13th Street. Talk about confusing.

Well, spelling issues can rear their ugly head, too. And based on conversations I've had with out-of-towners (usually family or friends), I have a list of Owensboro street names that give non-natives the most trouble.
