Time for some more Darts and Laurels.
My first Laurel goes to the late Owsley Brown II, whose generosity continues to benefit this community – most recently in the form of an 18 million dollar donation to the Speed Art Museum announced earlier this week by his surviving family members. Mr. Brown was a tireless supporter of the Speed, and this unexpected windfall will now allow for its current renovation and expansion to be completed up to 10 years sooner than expected.
Meanwhile, a Dart really isn't harsh enough for the clueless Harrison County woman who locked her two nine year old children in the house all day so she could put in a full day of work -- a hundred miles away. Luckily, this incredible irresponsibility was revealed when one of the children called 911 after a toilet overflowed. That's not usually the right way to deal with a plumbing emergency, but in this case it may have prevented a much worse one.
And finally, another Laurel goes to former UK football star Steve Meilinger, who was finally named to the College Football Hall of Fame after 60 years. An integral part of Kentucky's Bear Bryant teams of the early ‘50s, Mr. Meilinger should have been in the Hall long before this. But now that that's finally been corrected, it's good to know he's still around to enjoy the honor.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
