Oh, Kentucky

You decide.

Good jobs news from London ("yet another") and Louisville.

The Middlesboro Daily News and Harlan Daily Enterprise have a new publisher, and he's "from the area." The Courier-Journal has a new executive editor, and he's from Wisconsin.

Christmas parades: Owensboro (here's the route), Nov. 19; Ashland, Nov. 22; Sebree, Nov. 26; Bardstown, Dec. 1; Maysville, Monticello and Richmond, Dec. 2; Berea, Bowling Green, Glasgow, Madisonville, Paris, Somerset and Winchester, Dec. 3; Boyce and Owenton, Dec. 4, and Cave City, Elkton, Hopkinsville and Pikeville, Dec. 10.

New life at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Owensboro.

"In what ways do you currently connect with fellow feminist social change artists? (Check all that apply)."

Fifty years of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act (and the Bardstown/Nelson County human-rights ordinance).

Kentucky for sale: "Daniel Boone becomes a Colonel of Kentucky," courtesy of Vice President Barkley.

Remember "Grayson's Inn?" Or "Buckskin Bev's"? How about "Guys & Dolls" or "Reflections on the Lake?" Well, all of them are becoming a Cracker Barrel.

An alert Facebook user in New York tipped off the Bank of Edmonson County and The Edmonson Voice to unwitting role in a scam.

Rest in peace, Vonda Robinson, whose "dying words to me was to make sure we got the building checked out;" prayers for the employees of the Floyd County courthouse, and well done, Mary Meadows of the Floyd County Chronicle.


  1. During the election around 67% of his facts were false. Not sure why that would change now.

  2. #khsfb quarterfinals last night: Trinity won by 43 in 6A; Bowling Green won by 29 in 5A; Belfry won by 31 in 3A, and Mayfield won by 22 in 2A.

    Turns out Jason Frakes was totally correct about Franklin-Simpson. The Wildcats beat the defending state champ, South Warren, in the Class 4A tournament last night. In next Friday's semis, F-S goes to Elizabethtown John Hardin, and Paintsville Johnson Central is at Wayne County.

    The Class A tournament, meanwhile, also lost its 2015 champion last night. Pikeville, which had beaten Hazard in the regular season, lost at home to the Bulldogs, 42-19. The other 2015 semifinalists all advanced last night. So next Friday, we get Russellville at Fort Mitchell Beechwood (Beechwood won by nine at Rhea Stadium last season) and Paintsville at Hazard (Paintsville lost at home by 19 last year to Pikeville).

    Hazard, by the way, is the last team to beat Mayfield in the Class A playoffs. You might remember the 2011 final.
