Oh, Kentucky


A prodigious rainbow appeared over Christian County on Wednesday, and the WHOP Facebook feed was all over it:

Per Gina Kinslow in the Glasgow Daily Times, local officials aren't going so far to call it an economic boom, but "there's a lot going on in Cave City."

The Pulaski County Park expansion plans includes more RV sites, a miniature-golf course, more trails, a splash park, a new playground, etc.

Activities at the Beaver Dam Strawberry Festival include the opportunity to shoot "old west Colt 45s" on Monday.

The ruby-throated hummingbirds are back from Central America to summer at Land Between the Lakes, and you can watch them and their friends live here ...

Bad jobs news from Lexington. Good from Bardstown.

Hurrah, too, for this fantastic story from T.J. Caudill on a Hazard hotel breaking away from a national chain, making various enhancements and keeping full employment.

Public K-12 classes around Kentucky are shutting down for summer, but the KHSAA baseball and softball tournaments are still each a couple of weeks out.

One last hurrah: "BEST NEW THING IN MADISONVILLE and one of the reasons we live in the Best Town on Earth--folks who work to take care of 'the least of these' and folks who have the courage to accept the invitation."

  1. I didn't hear about this Horse Cave trapped-cavers story yesterday until it was almost over, so I didn't grasp just how harrowing it was. This Claire Galofaro/Bruce Schreiner story for the Associated Press, though, captures it: "They could hear nothing over the roar of the water. Foster started to doubt he'd come down the right passage. He said anxiety built like a rock in his stomach. Then they heard it: 'We're here. We're OK!' The students had shouted after seeing their flashlights."
