Equipment failure blamed for explosion


A spokesperson for Silver Trail Distillery says the owner is deeply grieved by the explosion and fire that destroyed the building and wounded two employees. A statement posted early Saturday on the Distillery's Facebook page said the damage and injuries were caused by a "massive equipment failure." The statement said Second Distiller Jay Rogers & his Assistant Kyle Rogers suffered serious injuries & are being cared for at Vanderbilt Hospital. An account has been set up at CFSB to help Jay and Kyle with expenses as they recover. Owner Spencer Balentine thanked everyone for their prayers and encouragement on Facebook.

Inaugural derby race raises thousands

Visitors to Paducah's Noble Park saw quite a site on Saturday: 6,000 rubber ducks floating on the park's pond. It was part of the first-ever Paducky Derby, a fundraiser benefiting the Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center. Mary Foley, executive director for the Merryman House, says originally 5,000 ducks were ordered for the derby, but community response was so great that all the ducks were "adopted", and an additional 1,000 ducks were ordered. A total of $30,000 was raised through the duck adoption. Foley says there's more money coming in from sponsors which should put the final total over $40,000. The Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center serves eight counties and provides shelter and help for those suffering from domestic violence. (Updated: 11:07 am, Monday)
