West Side Wrecker Service started in business in 1997 and services the cities of Owensboro, Louisville and Bowling Green.
McFadden found a way to help educate youth by providing a resource to the teachers of his son's school. McFadden joins Denise Pellow, Author of The Five Dangerous Trends Concerning Kids, Technology and the Internet, by donating her book as a vital resource to educate teachers, parents and the community. Pellow's mission through her website http://www.kidsbesafeonline.com is to provide educational materials and resources to all adults needing information to protect their children concerning the electronic digital devices they use and the Internet.
