Oh, Kentucky

The Kentucky desk is opening a downtown-Madisonville branch.

It has been a rough time for newspapers, and there has been some really innovative stuff that has come out of this period. Good luck to the Danville Advocate-Messenger with its "Bluegrass Portraits"  undertaking.

Why has the Pulaski County Public Library been so lively for the last 20 years? "None of the librarians ever said my name. It was a very quiet library. I was determined then and there that if any child came into the library, nobody would going without, 'Hi, I’m glad you’re here.' It would be a loud place, a place where bicycles are ridden and trains. Normal behavior."

Kentucky for sale ("The Legend Lives On"):

Learn to glean Lexington.

You can now just pick up your groceries at the Henderson Walmart.

Bellevue's Waffle House plans are pending some Kroger developments.

Meanwhile, in Casey County, a Vanceburg native has reopened Penny's Place as a general store, and Rusty Joe's of Liberty is taking its boutique game on the road.

With the lifeguards headed back to school, Carter Caves State Resort Park is tweaking its pool schedule next month.

Hiring at Levi Jackson and in Leitchfield.

The state has announced a slew of apprenticeships in recent weeks--in moving and riggingnursingwelding and "computer numerical control."

Honoring the "Cold-War Patriots" of West Paducah.

Rest in peace, Dale McMillen, whose "descriptions of 9th Region basketball games were inimitable, his enthusiasm for Northern Kentucky hoops melodiously flowing over the airwaves with every basket, rebound, and blocked shot."
