Local Tourism Heats Up

Even as the weather is cooling down, local tourism is heating up. Duff Giffen and her assistant, Marla Baxter, were honored along with graphic artist Obie Williams by the Kentucky Tourism Council for their recent tourism marketing efforts. Maysville continues to grow in stature among the state's tourism destinations. Also, the local communites of Augusta and Ripley vie for the distinctive title of American Dream Town 2006 in a competition that runs through Dec. 1. 150 towns from across the country were chosen to battle for the distinction. The winner will be featured on the American Dream Show on Hamptons TV. Currently Ripley, has received nearly 900 votes, putting it in third place behind two Virginia and Florida towns that have over 2,000 votes each.

Aw man, perhaps next time. It's not surprising though. At the time of posting, the other towns had already received 2,000 votes. I think 2,000 is the entire population of Ripley : )
