Theres talk that a deal could be in the works to buy the Executive Inn in Owensboro. Evansville businesswoman Mary Hukill says she is part of a group interested in purchasing the hotel. She would not say if she has made a bid yet, but she says there have been three bids made by other parties and rejected. Hukill has been a part of other high profile projects. She was part of a group that proposed a five story building in downtown Evansville for retail and restaurants.
