Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear Young Entrepreneurs Academy speaks –
Gov Steve Beshear YEA Young Entrepreneurs Academy Centre College Danville KY

INTRODUCTION: Good morning everyone. Thank you for coming out on a completely dreary day. I mean it is just terrible out there, but what we have to talk about today is exciting. John Roush and President of Centre College, on behalf of Centre students, faculty, and staff, I want to welcome you to this historic campus this morning for an announcement about an important partnership between a truly exceptional entrepreneurial, national organization, Commonwealth of Kentucky, an our local community. Most notably they are the fruits of Danville, Boyle County Chamber of Commerce. It’s fitting to make this announcement I would argue on our campus since the effort we now join began on a college campus. Since its creation some nine years ago it has empowered young men and women across the country to launch more than 800 small businesses. You had that idea [pointing to J. Hunter Simmons]. That Saturday, and we’ll talk about that more. I also want to say a word as Governor it is important to be in this room. Isaac Shelby was an honest to God… Continue reading

Kentucky Kicks Ass

Kentucky Kicks Ass

Kentucky is a Proud Place – Kentucky Kicks Ass

Kentucky is a proud place.

An awesome place.

A kick-ass Commonwealth.

But the world may think otherwise. On September 8, 2011, we launched a 60-day Kickstarter campaign to raise $3.5 million to crowdfund a Super Bowl ad to show the world just how amazing Kentucky is.

It was hard to find a single Kentuckian who didn’t love the idea, so they gave, and they gave. Some pledged a dollar; some pledged $1,000. More than one proud Kentuckian gave over $10,000. It was an idea worth sharing, “tweeted” and “liked” thousands of times.

A lot of proud Kentuckians (and non-Kentuckians) started talking about how great the Commonwealth is. The talking still hasn’t stopped. Kentucky PAID NOTHING for this exposure.

Rebranding Kentucky

Rebranding Kentucky

How would you describe the Commonwealth of Kentucky? Would you mention fried chicken, George Clooney, or Bourbon? How about bluegrass music or Muhammad Ali, NCAA Basketball Championships or the mother-freaking Kentucky Derby? Rebranding Kentucky?

Does the Commonwealth’s current slogan Unbridled Spirit best describe Kentucky? Sure, it’s clever (Unbridled Spirit = horse + bourbon), but does it make you want to visit? Would you wear it on a shirt? Will it ever be big in Japan?

Google Unbridled Spirit, and the first result is for horseback riding lessons in San Antonio, Texas. That’s no bueno.

So, in 2004, why did the Commonwealth use half a million of your hard-earned tax dollars to develop the Unbridled Spirit brand for Kentucky?

Kentucky for Kentucky has been tasked with developing a viable brand and tagline for the great Commonwealth of Kentucky. Our goals are simple: increase tourism, attract new business, foster pride, diminish stereotypes, unify the Commonwealth, and distinguish Kentucky from any other place on the planet.

Festivals in Danville KY

KY BBQ Festival Danville KentuckyFestivals in Danville KY

Danville and Boyle County citizens sure know how to throw a party. The community calendar includes at least a half-dozen annual festivals and events that bring people together for fun, food and fellowship. Read more about the Festivals in Danville KY.

There’s so much energy here and a proud ownership among the people who care so much about making Danville KY a great place to live and visit, says Jennifer Kirchner, executive director of the Danville/Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau. People in Danville KY and Boyle County are so welcoming and friendly. It’s part of their DNA.

Kentucky State BBQ Festival

One of Danville KY‘s newest traditions is the Kentucky State BBQ Festival, launched in 2011. During the two-day event, pitmasters from all over the United States converge on Danville’s Constitution Square to cook up mouthwatering barbecue for festival-goers.

The first BBQ Festival was an overwhelming success. Organizers hoped to attract between 5,000 and 10,000 people and ended up drawing more than 25,000.

We were excited and proud to have such a huge crowd, but we ran out of food the first day. We had to go out and buy more meat and put it on to cook overnight for the next day, says Brad Simmons, co-founder of the Kentucky State BBQ Festival.

About 40,000 people showed up for the second BBQ Festival in 2012 and sampled barbecue from six pitmasters from Florida, New York, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi. Live blues and Southern rock bands provided entertainment.

People are passionate about barbecue. It’s something that crosses every economic, racial and social line, Simmons says. When people start smelling the smoke, they relax and have a good time. With all the fast food and fast technology today, it’s nice to settle down and do something that’s slow. Good barbecue can’t be rushed.

The 2013 BBQ Festival is slated for the second weekend of September and will be even bigger than before.

We plan to have eight or nine pitmasters to help handle the crowd, Simmons says.

Tiny Danville KY is ready to host Biden Ryan VP debate

Tiny Danville KY is ready to host Biden Ryan VP debate

Greg Kocher | October 09, 2012 Tiny Danville KY is ready to host Biden Ryan VP debate

DANVILLE, KY. When it hosted a vice presidential debate in 2000, this city of about 15,500 was the smallest to do so. When Danville KY hosts the 2012 vice presidential debate Thursday night, the city of about 16,200 still will be the smallest to host the nationally televised event.

The Boyle County seat has grown a bit during the past dozen years, if not so much in population it gained 741 residents from 2000 to 2010, census figures say then at least in confidence. “I certainly believe there is less apprehension to the question, ‘Can we pull this off?'” said Danville KY stockbroker Mike Perros. “Now the attitude is pretty confident: ‘Yes, we can.'” Few cities get the chance to host one debate, much less two, said Boyle County Judge-Executive Harold McKinney.

That fact alone sets Danville KY apart from other communities. “That is a pretty neat angle for a journalist trying to put an identity on Danville KY,” McKinney said. “I think that’s an angle that will bode well for this community. … All of a sudden people have a different concept of Kentucky. There’s a whole lot of people who have a concept of Danville KY, and it isn’t with shoes.” Perhaps the most noticeable change since the national media descended on Danville KY in 2000 is the legalization of alcohol sales. In November 2002, voters approved alcohol sales by the drink in restaurants that have at least 100 seats and derive at least 70 percent of their income from food. Alcohol sales began in March 2003. Then, in March 2010, voters approved the expansion of alcohol sales to include beer pubs and liquor stores. That has brought more restaurants to town, and a couple of microbreweries now slake the thirst for craft beers.

Although alcohol flows more freely and legally, Continue reading

CNN/Money names Danville Kentucky one of the top places to retire

CNN/Money names Danville Kentucky one of the top places to retire

DANVILLE, Ky. – Danville has been named one of the top places in the U.S. to retire – once again. CNN/Money names Danville Kentucky one of the top places to retire – read more.

On Tuesday, CNN/Money released a list of the “25 Best Places to Retire” and Danville was among the cities named in the article. CNN compiled a list of cities and towns in America with reasonably priced homes, low crime and tax rates, and quality health care. Danville was listed first among the small towns recommended as retirement destinations. The rankings this year were broken down into big city, college town, resort area and small towns.
According to the CNN/Money article, Danville’s biggest draws are “lots of culture and an equestrian scene.”
“There are plenty of microbreweries, restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques, not to mention the area’s regional medical center right in town,” the article states.
Kentucky PondJennifer Kirchner, executive director of the Danville/Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the visitor’s center, located in Grayson’s Tavern on Constitution Square State Historic Site, is most frequented by couples looking to retire to Danville.
“Life in Danville offers a peaceful pace that is focused on family and heritage. The cost of living is reasonable, the pace is pleasant, and beauty is unending,” Kirchner said.
Other towns listed in the CNN/Money article include: Louisville, Ky.; Sevierville, Tenn.; Portland, Ore.; Tucson, Ariz.; Austin, Texas; and St. Augustine, Fla.
“It is certainly exciting to have made this list,” Kirchner said. “We are in very good company. In my opinion, this designation – as we have seen with many others we have received – means prosperity and vitality for our local economy, and a deepening sense of pride and ownership of our community.”
This is the second time CNN/Money has selected Danville as one of its 25 Best Places to Retire; and last year, “Where to Retire” magazine profiled the city in its November-December issue. In October 2010, Bankrate, Inc., named Danville one of “10 Great Places to Retire in the U.S.” based upon median home prices for communities named in Elizabeth Armstrong’s book “America’s 100 Best Places to Retire.”

Best Boomer Towns continues to rank Danville among the “Best 21 U.S. Places for Retirement” for Baby Boomers to thrive.

“Attracting retirees, their investment, and their civic capacity is just one of our diverse economic development strategies,” said Jody Lassiter, president and CEO of the Danville/Boyle County Economic Development Partnership. “Retirees have a significant economic impact, but I am even more impressed by the wisdom and talents that recent retirees have already given to our community through their volunteer service.”

Oktoberfest Danville Kentucky

Oktoberfest Danville Kentucky September 28, 2012 Main Street Danville KY

WHAT? Oktoberfest in September? Yup, September is when the real Oktoberfest in Germany begins.

I have just two words for you = Beer and BBQ. The town closes off Main Street so YOU can have a celebration! See you then!

Oktoberfest, an eating event in downtown Danville KY – come early.

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, running from late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world’s largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the Munich event.

The Munich Oktoberfest originally took place during the sixteen days up to and including the first Sunday in October. In 1994, the schedule was modified in response to German reunification so that if the first Sunday in October falls on the 1st or 2nd, then the festival would go on until October 3 (German Unity Day). Thus, the festival is now 17 days when the first Sunday is October 2 and 18 days when it is October 1. In 2010, the festival lasted until the first Monday in October, to mark the 200th anniversary of the event. The festival is held in an area named the Theresienwiese (field, or meadow, of Therese), often called Wiesn for short, located near Munich’s center. Large quantities of Oktoberfest Beer are consumed, with almost 7 million liters served during the 16 day festival in 2007. Visitors may also enjoy a wide variety of traditional food such as Hendl (chicken), Schweinebraten (roast pork), Schweinshaxe (grilled ham hock), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), Wrstl (sausages) along with Brezeln (Pretzel), Kndel (potato or bread dumplings), Ksesptzle (cheese noodles), Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes), Sauerkraut or Rotkohl/Blaukraut (red cabbage) along with such Bavarian delicacies as Obatzda (a spiced cheese-butter spread) and Weisswurst (a white sausage).

Best States for Retirement 2011

Best Places to Retire: Latest MoneyRates.com Survey Ranks Top States

Best States for Retirement 2011

The MoneyRates.com ranking of the best–and worst–states for retirement is back.

Your best place to retire depends on highly personal factors. You care about proximity of friends and family, cultural and natural attractions or maybe the presence of a favorite professional sports team. While no single set of factors can capture the diversity of individual preferences, Kentucky

MoneyRates.com’s data-based ranking can give you a place to start.

This year, we took input from our readers to determine how different ranking factors should be weighted. MoneyRates.com ran a poll asking readers how important four major factors–economic indicators, climate, life expectancy and crime rates–should be in the retirement location decision. The results of that poll formed the basis for this year’s rankings.

Based on reader responses, economics determined 47 percent of a state’s final score, climate accounted for 33 percent, life expectancy determined 12 percent and crime accounted for 8 percent. Here are the 10 states that came out on top.

No. 2: Kentucky
