Leashes & Love

2018 July/August

Diana Swinford knows how to manage people. For the past three decades, she worked in human resources, ensuring people were in the right places, making sure their needs were met. After a corporate restructuring in 2017, she found herself without a job. That’s when she decided to try a different species.

 

Paducah, A Bright Star on the Greap Loop

2018 July/August

There is an indelible sense of adventure and exploration woven into the American spirit—and nothing speaks to that yearning quite like our waterways. We, like those who came before us, long to follow these inland river paths to discover what lies beyond.

 

KAPOW!

2018 May/June

The massive concrete door closes behind Bruce Banner at the exact moment that evening begins on the surface! Then, just as it has happened so many times before…

 

…A startling change comes over the mild, scholarly scientist…

 

…And behold—the HULK!!!

Paducah's Youngest Mayor

2018 March/April

Occasionally, Mayor Brandi Harless is introduced as Paducah’s youngest mayor. When that occurs, she’s quick to correct. “Second youngest,” she says. In 1947, 30-year-old Gene Peak defeated Rex Cornelison to win the title thus beating Brandi by a few years.

 

Class of 68

2018 May/June

1968 was a year of major transition for the U.S. The nation, mired in the midst of the Vietnam war, was in a state of unrest. We lost both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy within the first six months. Major protests marked that year’s Democratic National Convention, and the American Civil Rights movement blossomed into a force that could not be ignored.

 

The Story of the Story Behind the Story

2018 March/April

In 2013, we told you the story of another story in another magazine. That magazine was Yank, the Army weekly distributed to service men and women around the world during World War II. Yank spread the news of U.S. forces’ efforts from all points around the globe. It featured cartoons, humor, and profiles of cities and people back home. It kept soldiers connected to the broader world and also reminded them of what awaited them at the end of the war.

A Look Back at the 1918 Flu Epidemic

2018 March/April

On September 26, 1918, Allied forces in Europe launched a bombardment of the Hindenburg Line, the last of the organized German defensives forming the Western Front in Europe. The line was, in places, 6,000 yards deep, littered with sprawling strands of barbed wire and hidden firing positions that housed German snipers.

 

HeArt & Soul

2018 March/April

Elizabeth Russell dips a paintbrush into a small dab of white. She gently moves it over to a sheet of paper that she textured with contrasting pink and gray watercolors. After the tip of the brush lightly touches the surface, she drags the bristles in a curve, the white paint leaving the brush behind in a streak on the page, instantly creating the forward part of a dragon’s wing.
