Clinton Visit & Breathitt Dinner Changes

These events have changed 4 times since last night but here is the final draft. The Governor Edward T. "Ned" Breathitt Dinner will be served at the Pioneers Pavilion on North Main Street in Hopkinsville at 5:30. All other speaking and presentations have been moved to the James E. "Jim" Bruce Convention Center off Fort Campbell Blvd. Hwy 41 South where Former President Bill Clinton will speak at approximately 8:00 pm.

There will be no cost at the Convention Center to hear the speaking. All Breathitt Dinner ticket holders will present their ticket at the Convention Center and will be given preferred special seating in the front.

The Convention Center only holds about 1200 people so it will be first come, first serve even if you have a Breathitt Dinner ticket. Consideration should be given to the fact that there is probably not enough parking spaces anyway and there will be no shuttles.

In short, if you want to eat then you better rush to the Pioneers and cram some food down and rush to the Convention Center if you want to hear Clinton speak. If you were not interested in hearing Clinton speak then you just got cheated and will have to wait until next year's Dinner.

Unfortunately, due to the meddling on the part of certain individuals, the Christain Co. Democratic Party lost the opportunity to make many thousands of dollars for the Party and have ended up with one big mess. It is my understanding that Jonathan Hurst and Jerry Lundergan are furious over the meddling of certain individuals who made decisions on their behalf but had no authority to do so.

I'm sure everyone will have a great time and I look forward to hearing about it.
