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. (Aaron Clayton;

race raises thousands
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.
