Stay far away! - 8/8/2014
Move here six years ago, and was very optimistic. I love meeting new people and adventure. Me my husband and two kids moved here from Louisville are. This place is like a gaping sore to the entire state of Ky. The people are the most ignorant I have ever seen, seriously. Since moving here I have seen animals neglected everywhere I look, I mean til the point of death. The animal shelter here got in trouble for taking them out back and shooting them... no lie! My children have witnessed animals being skinned alive and burned to death in Agriculture class, called the school and nothing happened, except my child was tortured at school. My children have been taught in trailers since we moved here, but there are multi million $ churches on every corner.This also is a right to work state=they can do whatever they want to you. I have been off work getting into my vehicle and been told I have to work 4 more hours. My daughter worked somewhere for a year that come to find out was paying her Read More

Nice People, Boring Town - 8/26/2013
I moved here for my husband's job 2 years ago with our 2 small children. I immediately noticed how friendly everyone is. At least to your face, because it didn't take me long to figure out that it is also a very "gossipy" town, hence a little thing called "topix". (Shudder) I have always lived in larger cities and so Paducah was a bit of a culture shock for me. Very difficult to live here if you don't have family or friends. Most people who do live here were born and raised, so its close to impossible to meet and mingle with others in the same situation.
Church is the only thing to do around here and being a non-believer (in organized-type religion, anyway), I feel that if "my secret" were to get out, I'd be burned at the stake! I have lived in a lot of different places and this is the first place where there was prayer at a job orientation, or I'm asked immediately upon meeting someone what church I attend.
There is no Target, no YMCA, no Whole Foods, no Read More

Paducah Culture & Attactions - 7/1/2013
Paducah is a nice friendly place to live great place to rise a family with a low cost of living. The city needs some Attractions like a Zoo or Water Park to help the city grow.

Quilters staying in private homes in Paducah, Kent - 4/19/2012
It is astonishing how locals that live in Paducah can open up their homes for the "Quilters" lodging and accomodations, when by law, if
a resident charges any kind of fee (whether non-profit or not)they are
required by the LAW to be licensed and inspected and present a
business license. It is totally against all standards of the law to charge anyone to "stay" in a persons' private home unless they are inspected and have a business license. This arrangement has had
a tremendous impact for us that do own bed and breakfast and prepare for the quilters all year long and that do have the proper license and home inspections. When trying to talk to Mr. Paxton about this situation, his rude secretary said he was too busy. Go figure..

Barbwire n Roses bed and breakfast in Calvert City KY and the Rose of the Lake bed and breakfast in Grand Rivers KY are inspected and present
our business license proudly.

Paducah? What is in Paduah? How do you spell that? - 8/10/2008
P.A.D.U.C.A.H.....The most asked questions I get when people; family,friends and strangers find out I'm moving to Paducah. I'm moving because my husband's career is taking us there. It's not a bad place, really, it is a pretty place; to visit is what I'm thinking as the words come out of my mouth, for the tenth time. Unfortunately, Paduah does not have much to offer in shopping. And I am a woman....OMG what will I do....how often will I travel to Nashville to shop, my mind wonders... I find it very stange there is no Target, Stein Mart, Fresh Market, Publixs, Cold Water Creek but they have Talbots. Figure that one out. Should I even mention shopping for food, only Walmart and Krogers. I'm told time after time, there is money in this city due to the company my husband is working for but there is not much to offer for the shopper. However, there are alot of places eat. Still on my quest to make Paducah my home even if you must get out of your car and walk inside a building to purchase Read More

Retirement haven - 3/31/2008
My Wife & I retired to Paducah 2 1/2 yrs ago after 30+ years in Hawaii. We chose Paducah for it's mild climate, low cost of living, scenic beauty, friendly people and great shopping & hospitals. We have never had second thoughts about our decision to retire here. Being a bluegrass fan, a stock car fan and a gardener (new at this) we find plenty to keep us occupied. It's just a great place!Read More
