Boy stuck on McKneely Lake dam

Holy cow! I used to run around the dam when I was a kiddo. I used to have nightmares about sliding over the edge. Pretty scary.

I'd have to add The Conjuring.

Though you may disagree with the article, you have to admit, those three films could easily be argued as one of the scariest.

Insidious Chapter 3 to be More Like the First Film

Good news, IMO.  I was disappointed with Chapter 2 because I wanted to see more of the "further" and more of the red demon.
For me personally, Insidious Chapter 2, didn’t quite do it for me. I loved the first film, even if the demon reveal nearly killed it for me. But Chapter 2 just felt a little, well, I guess I was expecting more which is always the trouble when it comes to sequels. But, a third film …

Though disappointed in Chapter 2, I still liked it.  The problem for me was that I found it "interesting" and not as scary.

I compare it to Candyman 2.  I liked the film because we learned more about Candyman... who he was and how it came to be.  It was more about the "how and why" than it was about the scares.... IMO, of course.

Your Feature Requests  - 
 
Wish list:  The return of Reader via similar tools in Google+.

1.  Save for later;   2.  Mark as read

For info-hungry folks, G+ makes it a bit difficult to manage and be a "power user".  Reader was great at managing and organizing information to ensure that you saw everything you wanted to see.

With G+, you can't take a break.... or you'll miss something.  I wish there was a way to mark "cards" as read.... either by tapping or automatically as I scroll by.  There would need to be an option to sort by "Undread Only".

Being able to "Save for later" has already been requested many times.  The most popular option is integrating a small "star" icon (consistent with many other Google products) that can be easily clicked or tapped.  There would then need to be an option to view your "Starred" items.

Dixie Dozen torn down to make way for Hobby Lobby

Old new, but the demo is new.  Pretty nice pic here.

Hobby Lobby should do well.... not really any competition in the area for this type of store.
Dixie Dozen Theater, 6801 Dixie Hwy., was torn down April 22 in order to make way for a new Hobby Lobby.

+hank hill True.  I had read a while back that the "big box" theaters were struggling.  Not just bootlegs, but also because fewer and fewer people want to spend $ when the TV screens and sound systems at home are getting bigger, louder, and more affordable.

In addition to that, the chains have not recovered from all the debt they took on to hurry and open stadium-seating theaters on every corner in the late 90s.

Construction in full swing at Churchill Downs ahead of Kentucky Derby
www.wlky.com

Friday's gorgeous weather got a lot of people with spring fever excited for warmer weather and what comes with it, like the Kentucky Derby.

A very close return to The Villa Buffet. This is the third buffet to occupy this spot in the massive concrete structure leading up to the riverboat casino. While I don't feel like version lives up to the first, original buffet, it is leaps and bounds better than the second. Compared to the first buffet (The Villa Buffet), The Spread is pretty darn close. While The Villa cut deeper into various cuisines (American, Mexican, Asian, Italian, etc.), I don't feel The Spread does a great job. While there is a variety of cuisines, it doesn't go much beyond what I would consider traditional American food. Yes, there is pizza representing Italy and fajitas representing Mexico, it's still just "regular" food, in my opinion. Compared to the second buffet (Paula Deen), The Spread is *way* better. The Deen buffet was very limited. I referred to it as a "deluxe KFC buffet". With The Spread, there are way more dishes set out and so much more to choose from. The meat selection has grown from fried chicken to also include ham, ribs, and steak. It's so much better. Good: I experienced excellent service on my visit. The food is fresh. The buffet bars *are* the cook stations. The food is constantly being prepared in front of you and set out on the bar. Great selection of meats. Great selection of desserts (I was surprised to see Crème brûlée). The location is nice. If you visit the casino often, it will be convenient. If you don't visit often, it will be a break from the beaten path for a while. Bad: The price tag could be considered expensive. For a few dollar less, it is not impossible to be just as pleased and enjoy great food.... even at a buffet. If you are vegetarian, you will be able to fill your plate with some great food (I remember the collard greens and steamed broccoli being excellent), however, your second plate will likely be the same things you got the first time because you may run out of choices. Overall, I enjoyed the place and will be happy to return. I think it's worth checking out. I you loved the first, original buffet, The Spread is a very close return.

It's a Walmart. Like any, there are good points and bad points. The bad is usually long waits when checking out and limited staff for assistance when needed. One good point is this location is conveniently sandwiched between a Lowe's and a Target. It's actually quite easy to get in and out of this big box heaven by car. My Walmart rating is often lower, but I cranked up the review one notch because I witness a great personality and attitude from an associate at the customer service counter.

Food, atmosphere, and service... all good! This local restaurant has a menu that leans toward healthy and items are made with ingredients grown as close to home as possible. Good: The mushroom lasagna was the best I've ever had. In terms of both looks and taste, the attention to detail of all the dishes at my table were impressive. Service was great on my Friday evening visit.... could not have been better.

I think most are familiar with this chain department store staple that commonly anchors a mall. There are three is the metro area and this one is right in the middle, based on size. The customer service is usually very good. The selection of merchandise is great and the prices offer a decent value, in my opinion. The only downside is that JCP recently had a change of power during a renovation that is now left hanging. IMO, the remodel should be finished... and soon. Update: Assistance I received looking for a particular item at the store recently was above and beyond. Excellent service. IMO, rating is 5 star based on customer service alone.

Food, atmosphere, and service... all good! This local restaurant has a menu that leans toward healthy and items are made with ingredients grown as close to home as possible. Good: The mushroom lasagna was the best I've ever had. In terms of both looks and taste, the attention to detail of all the dishes at my table were impressive. The atmosphere created by the lighting and interior brick walls was nice. If I had to score on service alone, I would still give a top rating. Our server was great... almost felt like we were guests in her own home. Could not have been better. Caution: As with all popular restaurants tucked into a crowded neighborhood, the parking lot fills up easy. Of course, in this part of town, the fact that they have a parking lot is a luxury. This is not a big deal at all and should be expected. In my opinion, this place is a must. Looking forward to returning. Other reviewers mention slow service, so I should note that my visit was mid-week and the tables appeared to be 60-70% full.

Good food and good service. It's a popular chain restaurant so most know what to expect. The menu is online so there's not surprises. I've been a Chilis fan in general for a few years now. I experienced great food and A+ service on my visit that could not have been any better.

To card, or not to card, that is the question. When I show my card upon entry, the greeter is not interested to see it. When I don't show my card, I'm tackled. I wish they would pick a policy and stick with it. Good stuff: Wide aisles. Cart corrals in the parking lot are covered and permanently attached to the ground so they don't scoot around (silly, but it's nice). Employees around the checkout area that do make an effort to reduce long lines. On recent visits, I have observed continuous checkout efficiency.
