The Importance of OUR Library

2019 January/February

Libraries are important. They always have been. They always will be. No matter what innovations beset us, be they printing presses, typewriters, computers, or holograms (maybe?), the idea behind libraries is ideas. And ideas will always save us.


A Street By Any Other Number

2018 November/December

Numbering, as a way of naming streets, is a common and easy way to bring organization to the grid structure of most cities.


Cheers! to a New Year

2018 November/December

Shop Small & Win Big

2018 November/December

Christmas shopping is the time we think of the ones we love, looking for those perfect gifts to express our appreciation for those closest to us.


A Season of Hope, A Walk to Remember

2018 November/December

One of the season’s earliest events is Paducah’s advent walk. Organized by five of Paducah’s oldest churches, it is a time orchestrated to focus the hearts and minds of participants on the basis for the holiday season.


Hello Holiday Parade!

2018 November/December

We love a parade—and it’s even better when it celebrates the kick-off of the holiday season! The annual Paducah Christmas Parade is a throwback to yesteryear as hundreds of eager onlookers line Broadway between 2nd and 14th Streets to view a tradition nearly as old as the city itself.


What's UP in PADUCAH This Holiday Season?

2018 November/December

The Wild, Wild West

2018 September/October

Western Kentucky has always been a hunter’s paradise, with abundant game and lots of public land to roam. Paducah, a venerable old river town, is the ideal home base for these journeys of discovery.


For decades Kentucky hunters have looked west for dream trips afield.


Gather While Ye May

2018 July/August

Gather ye (rosebuds) while ye may.

—ROBERT HERRICK, 17th century


I’ve always been partial to this sentiment in both its literal and figurative influence.


Paducah, A Bright Star on the Great 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.
