Oh, Kentucky

Congratulations and happy retirement, Mr. Vandevelde. And way to go, Paducah Bank break-room lunch crowd and Pizza Inn vice president of operations.

The Kentucky Historical Society is amid a re-org. I wonder what the story is with the canoe.

Anderson County is getting started on an expansion of its public library. Hopkins County is moving toward restarting its.

Benham's behind with the feds.

"Kentuckians are bracing ..."

Good jobs news from Louisville.

Weird snake news from Hardin County.


In 1983, The Trimble Banner reported that "Trimble County’s population is expected to reach the number 8,054 by the year 2000, according to a forecast by the Population Research Unit of the Urban Studies Center. Sometime between 1985 and 1990 Kentucky’s population will go over the four million mark and by the year 2010 will top five million." Indeed, in 2000, Trimble County's population was 8,125--71 people more than the projection (and, as of the 2010 Census, it was up to 8,809)--but Kentucky's has not grown nearly at the expected pace. It didn't tip past 4 million until the 2000 Census, and it's still estimated at less than 4.4 million.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think a legend in country music would be calling little old Jeff Sneed in Glasgow, Kentucky."
