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.

Succulent Summer In The Depths Of Winter

2016 January/February

Nothing beats a homegrown tomato in July. The beauty of the vine-ripened fruit, bathed in the sun, is undeniable as we savor the delicate balance between sweet and tangy.

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.

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

Travelin' With Ray

2015 November/December

"Well, to say something about Ray Smith, you're talking about a man who had as much to do with the foundation of rockabilly music as anybody I knew. Ray Smith should have been, and was, in the hearts of people like me, and his fans, one of the truly great rockin' talents who came out of the fifties years." -Carl Perkins, rockabilly pioneer and writer of the song "Blue Suede Shoes."
