     There’s nothing like a massive sinkhole opening up and swallowing eight prized sports cars at the National Corvette Museum to increase ticket sales. Attendance at the Bowling Green attraction is up by as much as 70 percent during some recent months compared to a year ago.

    And, there’s nothing like a ruling by the Kentucky Supreme Court on issues even remotely related to smoking bans to stir the passions of a commonwealth raised on tobacco.

  • Americana!! Summer All-Star games are just that

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Fourth of July on Friday.

    The start of Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth All-Star Baseball and Softball Tournaments on Saturday.

    You can’t get much more Americana than that.

    I’m not as young as I used to be and I’m not as old as I will be, but I probably sound like a 13-year old when I say that this might be the shortest summer in history. So, we have to take our traditional summer events where we can get them. This weekend provides a double dose of tradition.
