Saturday 6-16 we took our kids and a couple of their friends (L-R Cory Bowles, Joshua Kantosky, Jonathan Kantosky, and Justin Bowles) to Journey's Backyard BBQ at Cool Springs Galleria in Tennessee. The boys got to see Motor Cross demos from Metal Mullisha with Brian Deegan. Most of the Adio skate team where there doing demos as well. We got autographs from Shawn White, Kenny Anderson, Nick Dompierre, Ernie Torres. Steve Nesser, and many more. The pic was taken just before we left and these 4 boys were worn out.

There is also a great picture of Shawn White signing one of our skateboards.

WebMeister Bill,
I recently went to Mexico City, Mexico on business and took an extra day to see some nearby history. This picture shows me in the ancient city of Teotihuacan which was inhabited from 100BC to 700AD. I am standing on top of the Pyramid of the Sun and you can see the Pyramid of the Moon in the background. These pyramids are connected by La Avenida del Muerte (AKA Avenue of the Dead), and, yes, long ago there were human sacrifices there.

Dear WebMeister,

Got Goo?

I’ve sent you a picture of me with one the busiest groups in the music industry taken last February 9th at the Palace Theatre in Louisville.

The Goo Goo Dolls pictured left to right, John Rzeznik, (me), Robby Takac, and Mike Malinin, have been touring since Spring 2006 promoting their latest album “Let Love In”. Most recently they recorded a song entitled “Before It’s Too Late” for the new Steven Speilberg movie Transformers coming out this month.

This Buffalo, NY trio has been around since the late 1980’s with their biggest and most memorable hit being “Iris” from the movie City of Angels with Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan. Other hits include “Slide”, “Dizzy”, “Name” and “Black Balloon”. The band has had a record of 12 hits in the top ten on Billboard’s Hot Adult Contemporary Chart over the years.

I happened to be one of 15 lucky fan club members chosen from a lottery to meet the band before the show in Louisville. I’ve been crazy about them ever since they sang a duet with Elmo on Sesame Street. Thanks for letting me share.

Last weekend (6/29/07) I took my daughter, Caitlyn Crane, and her best friend, Tristann Burks, to see Thomas the Tank Engine up in New Haven, Ky. at the Kentucky Railway Museum. This picture was taken soon after our train ride ended. I kept telling the girls that Thomas was taking us on a trip to the moon and when we ended 12 miles from the station to go back they looked out the window and looked back at me and said, "We are in a corn field!" They thought it was hilarious that I was so disappointed that we weren't actually at the moon. :) We had a really great time that day and for all you monkeys out there, Curious George will be there in September!

He was delivered by our great friend, Dr. Jud Allen, in Florence, Alabama, where he is now practicing with Florence OB/Gyn Group (even wearing WKU scrubs in honor of Katharine and Dennis both being alumni!). Katharine wouldn't have anyone else for her pre-natal care or to deliver her child but Mr. Jud, who has been like a second father to her for the past 16 years. Both sets of grandparents (Dennis and Sharon Collins and Tommy and Lynn Vick) and even one set of great-grandparents (Ted and Pat Peacher) made the trip to Alabama to be a part of this wonderful event. Carson is a true blessing but more so because his mommy is a cancer survivor of 4 years! Thanks for letting us share our good news!

Here are some photos I wanted to share. My family and I recently attended the Super Pull of the South in Chapel Hill, TN. This is a tradition for us but this year was the first time my daughter Payton got to go. The first picture is of my husband Randy, Payton and Larry Koester. Larry drives Footloose and is my husband's favorite. For those not familiar with Larry, he lost his legs in a farming accident years ago but still dominates the dirt in the modified pulling series and is a wonderful person all together. The second picture is of Payton in the driver's seat of Red Line Fever. She had the time of her life on her first trip to Chapel Hill. For those of you who enjoy truck and tractor pulling - it is well worth the drive down there. It is definitely good family entertainment.

Dear Bill,
This is a picture of our daughter, Courtney Sexton. She decided after nine years of growing her hair that it was time to cut it. She wanted to make some other child happy to have her hair so she donated it to Locks Of Love. This is a picture of how long her hair was before she cut it and a picture of one after she cut it. Me and her father are so proud of her for donating it. We would also like to thank Stacy McCracken at Vanity Hair Salon and Day Spa for cutting her hair.

Mammoth Cave and Edmonson County announce new dispatch capabilities
(BROWNSVILLE, KENTUCKY -- August 23, 2007) The Edmonson County Dispatch Center is on duty 24/7 and connected to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). A mutual agreement between Mammoth Cave National Park and Edmonson County provides for improved law enforcement and emergency communications for the county and the park.

“All the installs and upgrades to the county dispatch center are complete and in use,” said Park Superintendent Patrick Reed. “This is truly a win-win project. Working as a team the park and the county have something that we could not have accomplished on our own.”

It started in 2004, as an agreement between Mammoth Cave National Park and Edmonson County to improve emergency responder communications for both the county and the park. A formal Memorandum of Understanding was signed, committing both parties for certain obligations. The park agreed to:

  • Purchase and install LP gas generators for the Grassland Road antenna site and the County 911 Emergency Dispatch Center, which would automatically kick in during a power outage
  • Install a transmit/receive combiner multicoupler system, allowing other county radio transmitters to be moved to the Grassland Road antenna without frequency interference
  • Make all provisions (purchase, installation, phone charges, and training) for a NCIC terminal at the County 911 Dispatch Center
  • Install a console base station in the Dispatch Center programmed with the park frequency, for digital encryption
The County agreed to:
  • Allow the park to place radio repeater equipment on the County’s Grassland Road antenna
  • Provide commercial and emergency power to the equipment
  • Transmit and receive park law enforcement radio and telephone messages
  • Monitor park ranger/personnel status as they are engaged in law enforcement/emergency services activities
  • Maintain written logs of radio traffic

The gravesite is located on a private farm in Barren County, Kentucky, currently owned by Tommy and Wilma Samson.

Dorothy Wade added the following to the caption and picture above:

Did you receive an e-mail from Jeanne McLeod this past week? If so, the one with snow white hair is me. Jeanne saw in your pictures posted back in 2001 or 2002, a Dr. Williams from the south at the gravesite, that I had sent you.

The McLeod's were making a trip to Alabama from Grapleland, Texas. They came to Bowling Green after 11 hours on the road for the night. At my suggestion, we met for lunch the following day. We then went to the gravesite 4 and a half miles out New Bowling Green Rd., then into an unmowed field with the temperature in the high 90's. After two hours in Glasgow they were on their way to Alabama where that had started. I was also able (through our DAR scrapbooks) to send her information on her patriot, which she had no knowledge.

The Passion Flower
Picture Featured:    September 18, 2007 The Passion Flower
Wendell Kennison sent us this photo back in mid-August and writes:
Hi Bill,
This Passion Flower is one of hundreds I ran across near my friend's house.. The old timers called them "wild apricots"... They will produce a fruit in the late summer and fall.. They have a sweet smell and can be eaten. The name comes from a legend that says the flower represents the crucifixion. Maybe someone can add more light to the legend.


William & Barbara Morris sent us the following in response to Wendell's comments above: "Passion" does not refer to love, but to the Passion of Christ on the cross. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Spanish Christian missionaries discovered this flower and adopted its unique physical structures as symbols of Crucifixion. For example: the 72 radial filaments (or corona) represent the Crown of Thorns. The ten petals and sepals represent the ten faithful apostles. The top 3 stigmata represent the 3 nails and the lower 5 anthers represent the 5 wounds. The flower has been given names related to this symbolism throughout Europe since that time. In Spain, it is known as Espina de Cristo (Christ's Thorn). In Germany it was once known as Muttergottes-Schuzchen (Mother-of-God's Star).

In Israel they are referred to as clock-flower ( ). In Japan, they are known as clock-faced flowers, and recently have become a symbol for homosexual youths.

In North America they are also called the Maypop, the water lemon, and the wild apricot (after its fruit). Native Americans in the Tennessee area called it ocoee, and the Ocoee river and valley are named after it.

Greetings from a resident of Glasgow, Scotland. I have been keeping up with your website for a few months now and find it very fascinating. For a bit of fun I thought I would send you a photo I took of our underground subway at a station in the centre of Glasgow. The trains run around in two lines, one clockwise and the other anti-clockwise. There are approximately a dozen stations which circle the main city centre.

I like looking at all your photos and wonder what it would be like living there. I look forward to seeing more in the future.

All the best,

Ground broken for Mammoth Cave visitor center renovations

After six inches of rain in two days, Mammoth Cave NP Supt. Patrick Reed opted for dry concrete, rather than actually shoveling into muddy ground. The groundbreaking kicked off the $5.9 million Phase 1 renovation of the visitor center. About 50 people attended, including area elected officials and tourism representatives. Phase 1 demolition and construction will transform the old administration building into space for cave tour ticket sales and modern restrooms; the breezeway will become a spacious lobby. Martin Construction Company of Louisville was awarded the contract.

With shovels in hand are: Daniel London, representative of Congressman Ron Lewis; Jim Askins, representative of Senator Jim Bunning; Larry Cox, representative of Senator Mitch McConnell; Kofi Frempong, of Martin Construction Company; Supt. Reed; Sherry Rascovar, senior vice president of Parsons-Brinkerhoff; Lydia Creager, NPS project manager; Mike Adams, Mammoth Cave chief of interpretation; and Steve Kovar, Mammoth Cave chief of facilities management.

Trevor Baise (front row, 3rd from left) celebrated his 13th birthday on October 13 in Cave City with 27 friends attending. What makes his birthdays interesting and different are his request for gifts. He asks that gifts be brought for a certain charity or ministry and not for himself. This year he chose my family to be the recipient of his gifts. My family will be moving to Texas in December to begin full-time faith-based missionary work in Reynosa, Mexico. We received around $300 in cash and gift cards for us to use while we are on the mission field. If Glasgow had a hometown hero, Trevor would definitely be in the running. His maturity and sacrifice at this age speaks volumes. My family thanks you, Trevor, and may God Bless You.

I know everyone is aware of the drought that the area is having. Last weekend Renee and I went to a few waterfalls and it really showed in the creeks and waterfalls around the area. I am sure many are aware of the below average water levels. Here a couple of photos of Cane Creek Falls in Tennessee and in comparing the two you can get a visual on just how low we are on water in the southeast. The first photo was taken in May 2005. I am sure everyone remembers the 3-4 days of rain that we finally received the last week of Oct 2007, well the second photo was taken 4 days after the last day of that rain. Sort of puts a new perspective on how low the water is.

While my husband Will and I were in Venice, Italy, one of the most interesting things we did is visit some of the glass-blowing shops on the island of Murano. This is an in-action photo we took at one of them. Most allow photos for at least a few minutes but often display signs for donations (as you can see in the picture). Their actual shops sell the finished pieces. Interestingly enough, Murano is the only island in the Venezia region where the glassmaking is allowed. Because of fire risk, all glassmakers were moved to Murano in 1291. The glassmaking process hasn't changed much in all that time.

Thought you might want to post this on the Glasgow Website. This is my husband Craig Trautman on the job in Osaka Japan. He served as a Chief Engineer with the Merchant Marines on liquid natural gas tankers for many years and has traveled all over the world with this job. He retired a few years ago but is now serving as a consultant to the industry which takes him back to Japan from time to time. This shot is from inside one of the ships he is working with.

When you're on the road you've got to enjoy it as much as possible. Jumping out of planes in Arizona is how I liked to enjoy Phoenix. If you get a chance and you're in the Phoenix area, drive down to Eloy and check out Skydive Arizona. They've got a high safety rating. I'm a native of Glasgow touring as a Head Carpenter for the Broadway show Movin Out. This is the life.

I took the attached photograph on Friday morning, 09-28-07, while visiting with my mother in Letcher County. We had just crossed the “Little Shepherd Trail” from Letcher County and ended up in “Kingdom Come State Park” located at the top of Pine Mountain in Harlan County. About five minutes before I took the photograph, we came upon three black bears, a mother and two cubs, which were in the roadway. I wanted to take a photograph, but they ran into the woods before I could get my camera. As you can tell from the background, it was still very foggy in the valley but bright and sunny from the top of the mountain. Thanks.

OSHA, Mammoth Cave NP and Chappy Awarded for Safe Completion of Cave Electrical Project

On December 15, 2004, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the National Park Service, and the Chappy Corporation, signed a worker safety and health partnership agreement at the commencement of the park’s underground electrical renovation project. As the project comes to a close, the partners gathered recently to receive awards from the Southeast Regional Office of the National Park Service for a safe job, well done.

“The logistics for this project were huge and could have been very dangerous,” said Deputy Superintendent Bruce Powell. “Not only did the Chappy Corporation employees install new lights, wiring, and telephones, they had to completely remove the old equipment. This project finished on time, with a clean safety record.”

Old 900-pound electrical transformers were broken down and hauled out of the cave by hand. A total of 45 miles of new wire was brought into the cave – in narrow passageways it was rolled off the spool and snaked through to its destination. Six miles of Mammoth Cave tour routes are now lit with economical, environmentally efficient light.

The renovation project calls for the overhaul of the park’s existing electrical system, which was installed more than 30 years ago. The system is outdated and does not conform to national electrical codes. The new system will be energy efficient and environmentally friendly to cave formations and creatures.

The Mary Wood Weldon Library offers Tator Tot Time each Friday at 10:00am. It is amazing to see how quickly the children pick up on the finger rhymes, and how much the babies respond with their facial expressions. This week we had a visit from Santa and his elf, and Grant liked Santa! Maude was not so sure! The library will take a Christmas break, the next TTT will be Friday, January 4, 2008 at 10:00am.
