  A long-time television producer who made Bowling Green his second home has passed away. Chuck Barris died Tuesday at his home outside New York City.  The creator of “The Gong Show” and “The Newlywed Game” was 87. Barris visited southern Kentucky often after marrying Bowling Green native Mary Clagett in 2000. He was also a supporter of the Bowling Green-based “Orchestra Kentucky.” Music director Jeffrey Reed said Barris was always generous with his time and talent.
