A City, A Celebration

2016 March/April

The mid-1950s were a time of great progress. Music burst forth in a new movement known as rock-n-roll. Televisions, along with a host of time-saving appliances, became commonplace in many households. The first artificial satellites went into orbit as we broke across the cusp of space exploration.

 

Coming to Paducah: The Cosmic Ballet

2016 January/February

It's an event that has been in the works since the beginning of time. On August 21, 2017, the earth, moon, and sun will align in perfect unison to create a dazzling display of solar and planetary prowess.

 

Finding Home

2016 January/February

Brothers Jim and Tom DeCillis spent most of their lives as nomadic businessmen. Both worked within the energy industry, managing construction of new facilities in the oil/gas sector. Separately, they globetrotted to every continent.

The Revival Of The Big E

2016 January/February

The most iconic component of Paducah's Executive Inn were the two, large neon Es found atop its roof. They so identified the hotel that many simply called it "The Big E."

 

When The Big E was demolished, the salvage company in charge donated the two neon letters to The Easter Seal Center to be auctioned in support of the annual telethon.

 

Here we go! Hello next quarter century!

2016 January/February

Every time I say aloud that we’ve been doing PADUCAH LIFE Magazine for 25 years I get this sort of shiver down my spine. And when I choose the phrase “quarter century,” y’all I just feel a bit weak in the knees.

 

Step Up To Bourbon Barrel Beer

2015 November/December

When Dry Ground Brewing finalized their first offerings, they already had plans in mind for future beer creations.

 

All along, the brewery intended to craft a bourbon barrel-aged series. As destiny would have it, both Roof Brothers and Wagner Wine & Spirits had hand-selected bourbons from storied distilleries, and both had barrels.

We've Left Our Mark

2015 November/December

If you send or receive Christmas cards from Paducah, there will be one noticeable absence this year: the Paducah postmark.

 

There is a loss of 24 hours in delivery time due to the closing of the Paducah processing facility. More than that, there is a loss of identity, a loss of independence.
