A compromise school calendar bill, partly aimed at assisting Kentucky’s tourism industry, is picking up steam in the state senate. 

The bill that earned committee approval Thursday offers flexibility for local school districts.

The Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau won six awards this week from the Kentucky Travel Industry Association for its creative and informative tourism marketing. Paducah won first place for its 2012-2013 visitors guide, its promotional video, and for its newsletter and billboard. And Paducah’s use of social media and quilting brochure placed second. The state travel association judged entries based on their ability to serve tourists and differentiate their location from others in the state.
