Discovering Paducah's Dragon Boat Festival

 

The idea was simple: tell the story of Paducah's annual Dragon Boat Festival from the point of view of its participants. The question was unexpected: Why don't you join the team?

 

It Came From Outer Space!

2015 July/August

It was another sweltering, summer day in Kelly, Kentucky just a few miles north of Hopkinsville. The mercury pushed to 95 on that late, August day in 1955, and the Sutton family settled back into their farmhouse in the evening to enjoy a visit from Billy Ray Taylor who'd come down from Pennsylvania.

Resurrecting Memories & Recreating The Old Country Store

2015 July/August

Until recently, sitting out front of the old general store, as one sipped on colas and argued politics, was a faint memory of Paducah’s not-so-distant past.

Many Are Happy That Happy's Is Back!

2015 May/June

On a pristine, early spring day in Paducah, there emerges a sound that has been noticeably absent in recent years on North 12th Street. Lively conversation and laughter swirl about a group of friends, some old, some new. Their merriment lingers for just a moment before racing through the propped-open door and across the sidewalk to the street in front of Happy's Chili Parlor.

 

Live, From WKMS, It Sounds Good!

2015 March/April

Silence quickly settles in to Studio B at WKMS. "One minute, one minute," says Tracy Ross, host of the radio program, Sounds Good. A reporter with Kentucky Public Radio wraps up the noontime report, his voice muffled through the wall of the studio next door. 

 

Paducah's Iron Mom

2015 March/April

The sun, barley aroused from its slumber, casually ascends to illuminate the streets of downtown Paducah. The cool breeze warms as the hue of the sky shifts from the cool of night to the warmth of day.
