Owensboro named best place to raise a family

Business Week Magazine has rated Owensboro the best place to raise a family in Kentucky.
The magazine mentions Owensboro's low crime rate, outstanding student test scores and low cost of living as reasons why it ranked the city number one in the Commonwealth.
Some Owensboro folks said that's no surprise.
"Certainly those of us already raising children in Owensboro know it's a great place to raise kids and so this is really a great opportunity for us to get some national attention about something we already know about here, what a great family town this is," Nick Brake withGreater Owensboro Economic Development said.
