I was reading my regular bike blogs and found an interesting site on Bike Commuting in Columbus. The site is called Walk Score - How walkable is your house? and the idea is to enter your home address and it locates facilities within walking distance. Your neighborhood gets a score out of 100 on how accessible places are by walking. The Griffith area in Owensboro rated 68 out of 100. Pretty good. There are grocery stores, drug stores, gyms, schools, the library, gas stations, hardware stores, etc all close by, There are also restaurants, but they are mostly pizza places and Starbucks (IMHO part of the evil empire). This could also be used for biking, but the radius should be expanded because biking is more efficient and quicker than walking.
