The Center of the Universe

My mother's family is from Maysville, Kentucky. I was last there just after Kaelyn was born. The sleepy old tobacco town just down the Ohio River doesn't see much excitement. Well, until recently, that is.

  • On Saturday, the local high school basketball team won the state title.
  • On Sunday, native son Chris Lofton helped guide the Tennessee Volunteers into the Sweet Sixteen.
  • On Monday, George Clooney was in town [with Renee Zellweger] to screen his new movie.
  • On Tuesday, Bill Clinton was in town campaigning for his wife.

I bet the editor of the Maysville Ledger Independent peed himself. His paper usually covers people saving downing puppies.
