Oh, Kentucky

When I was at WKU in the late 1980s, there was a student a little older than me who, the story went, had paid for his college by ordering a sun-tanning bed out of a magazine, installing it in his parents' garage and opening the first service of its kind in his home Kentucky county. Then, in the early 1990s, when I was traveling around the state so much, I noticed how it seemed that even the littlest Kentucky town had a place where you could get a sun tan, a place where you could rent a movie and a place where you could get a pizza--and that sometimes you it was one place where you got all of those things ... a one-stop date shop. Then, in 1999, the Kueber brothers launched the Sun Tan City chain out of a video-rental store in Etown. And now, reports The News-Enterprise, that family has given what is "believed to be the largest single private donation to a public school district in state history" to fuel entrepreneurism in Meade County.
