Squirrel munching on almond

One Paducah artist has made friends in some pretty high places — the treetops, to be exact.

Jim and Kathy Keeney have been selling their handmade jewelry out of a cart near the gazebo on Broadway Street for the past 17 years through their business, Keeney Scottish Tinkers.
