Paducah’s first and only dog park is set to open August 15th. Construction started yesterday on fencing to enclose the one point six acre parcel in Stuart Nelson Park. The finished area will be two small parks; one for dogs more than thirty pounds and one for smaller dogs. In 2010 the Paducah City Commission challenged the public to raise $20,000 towards the $40,000.  Two years later, private donors met that goal and the City of Paducah matched it.

Burlesque Makes Comeback in Paducah

iList Paducah

In western Kentucky, burlesque is one of the last art forms you might expect to take root in local conservative culture. But a Metropolis healthcare worker that doubles as a burlesque performer believes otherwise. On May 11th, she produced a burlesque show at Shandie’s Restaurant in Paducah, reviving a bit of the American history as numerous dancers shimmied in corsets.  As Casey Northcutt reports, the show’s dancers moved with passion and dramatic flare as they performed a genre of dance that was popular in the early 20th century.
