The Paducah Mayor and City Commissioners support efforts to preserve 
Noble Park’s duck house and island. Commissioners and the Mayor discussed ways to preserve the small island during Tuesday's commission meeting after many residents opposed the city’s previous decision to remove the island due to its state of disrepair. Commissioner Gayle Kaler says people voiced their concern not only through emails and phone calls but through Facebook, as well. As of Tuesday night, the group, “Save Duck Island”, had more than 3,500 members. Kaler said she approves of such enthusiasm.

The Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce will host a Mayoral and City Commissioner Candidate Forum on Monday, May 14, 6 p.m., in the City Hall Commission Chambers.
