Oh, Kentucky

The allegedly promised Adair County oil boom that wasn't.

The Mayfield boom reportedly is a real thing, however.

Alexandria's County Market is getting out before its narrowing window shuts.

Bus-driver shortage in Warren County.

Veterans Telehealth comes to the Evarts Public Library.

The TV grid and some comics leave the Middlesboro Daily News.

Assessing Year 1 for Etown's Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

"An unpleasant ... necessary story" of Logan County's lynching history, well told by Wes Swietek in Bowling Green's Daily News.


  1. I remember when the TV grid was vital to a local paper.

  2. It's still a crucial element to me. In yesterday 1972's Miami News, I learned about a special to be aired, College Football '72: The Season In 60 Minutes: "Actor Lee Majors, whose credentials as host of a college football preview show are impeccable does indeed act as host of the show tonight, during which members of the Football Writers Association of America, are up to their ears in making predictions. Tune in, fans, for their selections of the possible winners of the 1972 college football season's awards, trophies, etc."

    Also, the A's and Orioles are playing baseball on TV, and Here's Lucy guest stars a chimp.
