Skydome Sinkhole Tours Ending Soon

National Corvette Museum officials met on Wednesday with construction personnel and engineers to review the plan, process and timeline for remediating the sinkhole and repairing the Skydome building.  Construction is slated to begin on Monday, November 10 and if everything goes according to schedule, the project will be completed by July, 2015.

The team reviewed the step-by-step process of filling the sinkhole beginning with the removal of boulders.  Late November through December the team will then install sheet piling to block the cave openings.  The hole will then be filled with about 4,000 tons of fist-sized #2 stone, taking place late December through mid-January, 2015. The remaining concrete slab flooring in the room will be removed in mid-January.  At that time, electrical, water and HVAC  repair work will occur through mid-February.

A quantity of 46 micropiles as well as grade beams will be installed mid-February through late March. The micropiles will be spaced 15-20 feet apart at an average depth of 141 feet based on the structural engineering design.  This design will ensure that if another collapse were to occur, the floor would remain intact.  Following this process will be the installation of additional stone as well as a new concrete slab floor (anticipated to take until late April to complete).  The final two months of construction will include the rebuilding of a new entrance with garage door and emergency exit doors, other repairs, repainting, installing new lighting fixtures, a thorough cleaning and other final touch ups.

Changes to the room will include a one-level natural color polished concrete floor without stairs and ramps like the current room has; the new garage door to allow for easy display car access as well as the ability to have an open-air entry for after-hours facility rentals; a redesigned drainage system; and 12 foot paved perimeter around the Skydome.  The cost of the project is just over $3.2 million.

While the Skydome web cams will be removed during the construction process, the Plexiglas viewing window will remain so that Museum guests can watch the on-going work.

The Museum team has received numerous ideas and suggestions on ways to tell the story of what happened on February 12, 2014 and provide interesting and entertaining aspects for visitors.  The Museum is currently exploring several options that include the opportunity to see down into the caves and 3D art.

The Museum plans to display the three restored Corvettes and five unrestored Corvettes in the Skydome once work has completed.

“We appreciate all of the support, feedback, ideas and prayers throughout this very interesting time in our history,” said Wendell Strode, Museum Executive Director.  “Sunday, November 9 will be the very last day to see the sinkhole up close and in person – so if you’ve been wanting to check it out for yourself you have just over three weeks to do so.”

Currently six of the eight “sinkhole Corvettes” are on display in the Skydome: the 1962 Tuxedo Black Corvette, 1984 PPG Pace Car, 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, 1993 40th Anniversary Ruby Red Corvette, 2001 “Mallet Hammer” Z06 and 2009 “1.5 Millionth” Corvette.  After November 9th the Museum will move as many of the cars as possible into other public viewing areas until the Skydome re-opens in July, 2015.

The National Corvette Museum is located at I-65 exit 28 in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is open seven days a week, from 8am until 5pm Central Time. Museum admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids age 6 to 16, $8 for seniors or $25 family admission.  Children age 5 and under are free but are not allowed in the Skydome building.  For more information on the Museum, visit www.corvettemuseum.org, download their free app on iTunes or Google Play or call 800-538-3883.

The threat of a catastrophic impact from an asteroid or comet is a staple of popular culture. If there was a dinosaur killer in Earth's past, is there a human killer in our future?

Larry Keel Live


The Phoenix Music Series Proudly Presents
 
Larry Keel
Sponsored by:  Morris Jewelry
 
Larry Keel is described by some reviewers as the most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic flatpicking guitarist performing today. Keel has absorbed the best lessons from his Bluegrass family upbringing, both sides deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage of Southwest Virginia. From there, he has always integrated that solid musical grounding and natural-born talent with his own incomparable approach to flatpicking the guitar and composing original music. He’s also got a knack for choosing interesting and appealing material from all realms of music with guts, whether it’s a tune written by a fellow song-writer/musician friend, or a tasty cover from any number of genres all over the map. The combination is pretty irresistible. His fierce, high-spirited energy also appeals to young rockers, jammers and alt country pickers and fans who are equally drawn to Keel’s deep rumbling voice, his earthy and imaginative song-writing, and his down-home-gritty-good-time charm.

Plan to Be Tobacco Free


“Plan to Be Tobacco Free™,” a free educational program, will be held Tuesday, November 4, 9:00 a.m. at TriStar Greenview Regional Hospital.
 
The program is free and open to those who would like to stop using tobacco, as well as those wanting to learn more in order to help a family member or friend. It is sponsored by the Kentucky Cancer Program (KCP) and TriStar Greenview Regional Hospital.
The one-hour program is presented by a KCP tobacco treatment navigator and includes tips on correct use of cessation medications, reliable, trusted resources, and discussion of how to tailor a quit plan to increase an individual’s odds of quitting successfully.
 
Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death in Kentucky. However, federal experts say that there are immediate health benefits when tobacco use is stopped – regardless of the age of the user. For example, only 20 minutes after stopping, a smoker’s heart rate drops; 12 hours later the blood carbon monoxide level drops to normal; and within three weeks, heart attack risk is also reduced.
Pre-registration is required for this “Plan to Be Tobacco Free™” class. For more information or to pre-register for the class, call the Kentucky Cancer Program
at 270-842-0950.

Sunburst Youth Theater "Sleepy Hollow"


Sunburst Youth Theatre in collaboration with WKU
Sleepy Hollow
Adapted from Washington Irving’s Classic Tale by Harper Lee
Directed By:  Carol Jordan
November 20-23
 
Washington Irving published his ghost story about Sleepy Hollow in the 1820’s. But the Headless Horseman had made countless appearances in folklore from around the world long before then. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has been adapted into film, cartoon, and stage versions. Just recently, Ichabod Crane even got his own TV show on Fox. This story is a timeless and charming blend of the haunting and the romantic. This adaptation by BG native Harper Lee brings life to new residents of Sleepy Hollow and offers a refreshing take on Ichabod, his fate, and the Sleepy Hollow he called home.
