  • "He was a fixture at Churchill Downs for years; the track is remembering the man known as 'Buck' Wheat. Julian 'Buck' Wheat died at University Hospital Thursday afternoon from complications from a head injury he suffered at his home Tuesday." [WHAS 11]
  • "Dolls are a Christmas staple for many little girls, but besides being made in Santa’s workshop they are also made in factories all over the world; however, there’s only one place in the United States that still makes vinyl dolls and it’s in southern Indiana.

[WHAS 11]
