Discovering Paducah's Dragon Boat Festival

It Came From Outer Space!

2015 July/August

It was another sweltering, summer day in Kelly, Kentucky just a few miles north of Hopkinsville.

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.

 

Caretaker, Coach, Consultant ... Dad

Terri and Chris Myskowski's hearts flowed over with newfound love when they were blessed with the birth of their first child, a daughter. The contented little trio did not know what the future held, nor did it seem to matter.

 

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.
