MARCH 2019 Renewal for the City
3 Reasons I’m Excited About Spring
E very March, there are three things I look forward to: the start of the beautiful Kentucky spring, St. Patrick’s Day, and March Madness. Springtime in Kentucky is full of green grass and budding trees that make the countryside light up with life. The season brings with it newborn foals galloping through bluegrass fields, and it’s one of the ideal times for tourists to come to the area. They can visit the many horse farms, explore the beautiful outdoors, and tour the multitude of breweries and distilleries in the area.
“I’m excited for March because the winter gloom will give way to spring sunshine, and more people will get a chance to visit our wonderful region. And if they ever need a locksmith, I hope they’ll know who to call.”
I have always enjoyed St. Patrick’s Day as a holiday. It’s an excuse to spend time with family and friends and attend one of the many parties or concerts happening throughout the city. I also enjoy seeing the crowd that turns out for the St. Patrick’s Day parade every year. March Madness is always especially exciting to me because, if you remember from my previous newsletters, I was an assistant coach for the University of Kentucky in the mid-80s. I lived and breathed college basketball for years, and it is still a very exciting time of year for me, especially since UK is currently ranked No. 4 in the nation, and University of Louisville is ranked near the top 25 as well. These are all things I enjoy every year, but this March is a little bit different. At the end of the month, the South Regional round of the NCAA tournament will be in Louisville. I would love for UK and U of L to make it to that regional, and I’m sure there are a lot of other UK and U of L fans who would like that too. Regardless of which teams end up playing in that regional, however, it will no doubt bring around 25,000 people to the area. This will have a positive impact on businesses all over the area, and on Pop-a-Lock as well.
When I first began my involvement with Pop-a-Lock 24 years ago, we started with a focus on just helping people who were locked out of their cars. Over the years, we have expanded to become a full- service mobile locksmith company. We can now make keys for cars, program key fobs, rekey homes, and rekey businesses. With 25,000 people coming to explore everything Kentucky has to offer, from its horse farms to the St. Patrick’s Day parades to the South Regional championship, there will be a lot of people who might need one of the services we offer. I’m excited for March because the winter gloom will give way to spring sunshine, and more people will get a chance to visit our wonderful region. And if they ever need a locksmith, I hope they’ll know who to call. -Doug Barnes
