Fourth graders at Red Cross Elementary are learning about the power of writing. Fourth graders across the state are learning writing skills to entertain, inform, learn and persuade. Mrs. Buie and Mrs. Howard's 4th grade classes recently took the "Jump Rope for Heart" and "Hoops for Heart" event as an opportunity for their classes to write persuasive letters to their parents asking for permission to participate in the school event. Saleste Tucker (pictured jumping) convinced and changed her parents' minds about letting her participate. She says she will probably be writing more letters to persuade her parents. That's the power of writing. Red Cross Elementary held this event Friday, Feb. 7th and raised over $11,000.

Charlene Morris sent us this photo and writes:
On April Fool’s Day, my 15-year-old daughter asked me to make an appointment for "THE" big haircut. She was not joking. For the past 4 months, Maureen cared for, brushed and often braided her thick mane of brown hair. She had learned an area child had leukemia and would probably lose their hair. Her teen cousin in Virginia had donated a 10" ponytail to "Locks of Love" and they discussed it together at Christmas.

That idea "floated her goat," as Maureen is fond of saying.

There we were — watching the mirror, the stylist primping Mo’s hair. Barbara took out her shears and in a breathtaking 5 seconds, the 11 inches of hair was separated from my daughter’s head. She smiled and the other stylists gathered around to comment on Maureen’s curly bob. A few more calculated snips of the scissors and Maureen had a gorgeous pixie cut, as we used to call them.

Locks of Love has been around for a long time. The idea is to provide human hair (usually an expensive commodity) to make wigs for children and teens who have lost their own from disease. The service has been around for many years and is strictly non-profit. Although Barren County does not have an authorized LOL stylist, most experienced pros know the procedure: long hair is gathered at the back of the neck in a ponytail. It's then cut, banded, sealed in a plastic bag and mailed to:

Locks of Love
2925 10th Avenue North
Suite 102
Lake Worth, Florida 33461

Their toll-free number is 1-888-896-1588 and their Website is www.locksoflove.org. I encourage my children to participate in the community and think of others. Teens are notorious for not caring, but from what I've heard, the Locks of Love mission touches a lot of people — those who donate and who receive. Although Maureen has helped another child somewhere, she also has a new spring hairstyle. Dare I say I am proud of her?

Mammoth Cave National Park had older, excess computers. Red Cross Elementary in Barren County needed more computers and was hoping to find a donation. The two made a match on www.computers.fed.gov. Schools, like Red Cross, register their needs on the site, then federal agencies, like Mammoth Cave, offer to donate excess computer equipment that meet the school's needs. If the school accepts the offer, the transfer of property is handled online with very little bureaucratic paperwork. Anyone interested should register, because Mammoth Cave will soon have a few more Pentium III computers and monitors in excess.
In the photo, LaVetta Jessie of Red Cross Elementary accepts four of the park’s excess computers, each with a CPU, monitor and keyboard, from property officer David Vanarsdall and contract specialist Vienessa Martin.

Hey Bill,

Just took this picture a few minutes ago of my co-worker, Yulanda Bradshaw and I clowning around. Actually, these are part of the costumes we’ll be wearing this Friday night, Apr. 30 at our Relay for Life Concert at the Barren County High School Auditorium. The show begins at 7:00pm. Tickets are $6.00 each for general admission, and children 5 & under get in free. Concert goers can either purchase tickets at the door starting at 6:00pm or buy tickets in advance at any South Central Bank.

Yulanda and members of her Columbia, Ky. singing group “Standing Room Only” will be performing hits from the 70’s & 80’s, and a few of us South Central Bank team members have agreed to do a little singing as well! Please help us get the word out about this fun and worthwhile event! We’d like nothing better than a sold out crowd to help us ROCK AGAINST CANCER!

Here are a couple of Glasgow boys enjoying themselves at Saturday's NASCAR Busch race. Adam Cash and Aaron Lopotowsky enjoyed the race and festivities while getting wet during the storms that rolled through. Here, Adam and Aaron pose with some of the cars on display. They were both excited to meet and talk to a Navy Admiral while also getting the chance to get their picture taken with him.

This picture was taken on our first trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, of me and my two kids, Brandon and Madison. They had to get their feet wet as soon as we got there.

Thanks,

Here was a rainbow that I captured on Sunday, June 13th in the early evening. Wonder if the pot was at the end of the rainbow?

Steve and Brenda Grimsley sent us these photos. They write:
On Memorial Day weekend, my wife and I rode our motorcycle (along with 9 other motorcyles) to Asheville, North Carolina. As you can see, we visited the Biltmore Estate. We also rode through the Great Smoky Mountains. We were very lucky that weekend and missed the storms. That made the trip much more pleasant.

Just thought I would send some pictures of my cacti. I've had them for 3 years, but this is the first year that they have bloomed. I think they were originally brought here from Texas.

Enjoy,
Jerry Wolf

I was quite surprised to see a deer this morning in my neighbor's yard at 510 New Salem Road. I got two photos, but the first is not too clear (you can see the deer right in the middle under the Magnolia tree). On the right is the deer making his escape down the middle of the road.
