The Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau entered “Paducah: Where the Spirit Flows” documentary video into a UNESCO City world competition and the film was selected to be part of the month-long festival with it being screened in Bradford, UK in June. It also has been selected to be screened in Santos, Brazil as part of the Santos Coffee Festival in July. Carrie – I would love to get this posted on our social and to make sure it gets on the “news” tab of the web site (whatever that feeds from).

After a long day at school and outdoors, Isaac, left, and Luke Medley inhale some cheeseburgers for dinner. Their mother, Lalah, describes their dynamic as “parallel play” where most of the time, even though they’re doing the same thing in the same place, they’re doing it individually in their own way.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Bonds are built not just between the girls and the horses but between the girls who take lessons there. “I don’t know what it is about girls and horses, but it’s deep, and when they got it they don’t generally grow out of it. Which most parents hope they will,” says Sandy. Photo: Nathan Papes #mtnworkshops #kentucky #horsesofinstagram (at The Mountain Workshops)

Jada Starks laughs with her father, Brad Starks, during their weekly dinner. Brad sees his daughter only once a week because she lives with her mother. Brad, born and raised in Paducah, owns a hot rod shop in which he is the only employee. He gave up on office jobs years ago to pursue his passion of cars, opening his own shop seven years ago. While he is struggling to drum up business locally, he is known on the national scenel for restoring old cars. Brad knows that if his shop were in a more populated area, like Nashville, he’d have no problem growing his business, but he says he cannot leave Paducah because his father and daughter live here.
