Paducah and McCracken County will see a loss of about 12 hundred jobs, many high-skilled and high-paying.&nbsp; Organizations and agencies there are addressing the problem, but it's perhaps useful to also consider the experience of another community that underwent a similar economic reverse 20 years ago.&nbsp; Thu, 11 Jul 2013 16:00:00 +0000 Todd Hatton 32977 at http://wkms.org Ashland, KY Journalist with Advice for Paducah on Bouncing Back from Tough Economy
