I obtained the following pics on Hwy 68/80 today while trying to get home before the storm hit. Sadly, I missed home by 2 minutes and had to wait out the storm at a safe location until it was safe to drive again. These were taken just before you get to the A.L. Shirley Road and on down to where the Windy Hill Store was. I hope you can use them.

Hey Bill,

I thought I would share with you what these guys did on their first Monday off on Christmas vacation.They attended the Darren Horn Winter Basketball Camp. The players were the coaches and the kids got lots of instructions and got to participate in other competitions. They also had a pizza party with the team and they got all of their autographs. The players put on a dunking exhibition for the guys, too. The players and the coaches were very good with the kids and the boys had a great time.

Pictured above (I-r): Cole Payne, Barrett Billingsley, Zac Ross, Charley McCoy, Cole Scott and some of the players behind them. Thanks to the WKU Men's coaches and players.

Blaise Tylicki sent us this photo and writes:
Recently received a picture of my son, Captain Richard Tylicki. Richard is commanding four platoons with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, Bravo Co., 2nd BN, 103rd Armor. They have been stationed in Iraq since last March. They are hoping for a return to the States sometime in March.

Whenever we communicate, he tells us that although the days are long and the missions are tough, morale is very high. Although they are an Armor group, they have been trained for military security just as our local 623rd. Richard was part of the 623rd until moving to Endwell, New York, where he is Director of Stadium Operations for the Binghamton Mets Baseball Club in Binghamton, New York. They are a minor AA club affiliated with the New York Mets. Richard had just been home for about six months from a nine-month peacekeeping tour in Bosnia before being deployed to Iraq. So you see we are anxious for his return. Please let us all keep all our soldiers in our prayers.

Thank you,
Blaise Tylicki

Here's a photo for the Webpage. In the picture are Jaylen Stonerock and the Titan's punter and kicker, Craig Hentrich (#15).

Jaylen Stonerock, 9-year-old son of Brian and Andrea Buford, was the Kroger-Coca Cola Kick-Off Kid at the Tennessee Titans Game against the Detroit Lions on January 2nd. Jaylen spent one and one-half hours on the field with the team and their staff prior to kick-off and then got to run onto the field and retrieve the tee following kick-off. He met many of the Titans and enjoyed an overnight stay at the Nashville Hilton with his aunt and uncle, Kenny and Ann Stewart and his stepbrother, Devante Buford. His name and picture appeared on the electronic scoreboard. Jaylen is a fourth grader at South Green Elementary School.

I entered Jaylen into the contest and served as his chaperone (we won 4 game tickets, an overnight stay at the Hilton, and gift certificates to Opry Mills Mall and Eddie George's Bar & Grill).

Greetings, Bill,

I have tried a couple of times to get the elusive "moonbow" at Cumberland Falls. Well, on January 24, 2005, at 9:15pm EST, I was finally able to get a shot of it. The moonbow phenomenon only appears on a regular basis two places in the world. Cumberland Falls is one and the other is at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The only time the moonbow appears is on a full moon and a clear night. The only light that was used in this photo is the light of the moon (and a 30-second exposure).

If anyone is interested in other photos I have taken, some of Glasgow, they can visit my Website,

Take care,

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK) March 22, 2005 -- Congressman Ron Lewis presented a check to Mammoth Cave National Park Acting Superintendent Bruce Powell this morning at the Edmonson Co. Chamber Breakfast, supporting improved ferry operations across Green River in the park.

Congressman Lewis has earmarked $250,000 from the 2005 Omnibus Appropriations Act to begin predesign work to rehabilitate the Green River Ferry site.

Presently, the Green River Ferry site serves multiple functions and create a bottleneck and a safety hazard during high visitation periods. The redesign will include a new boat/canoe launch and parking area upstream of the ferry crossing, adequate parking for the Miss Green River II riverboat and the Echo River Spring trailhead, and an extension of the road ramps to improve ferry use in low water.

Hey, Bill,

I just got back from a month in Cambodia and saw some pretty amazing things, but the small town of Skuon in Cambodia was one of the wildest. To tourists, Skuon is known as "Spiderville" and for good reason. Some of the residents eat roasted Tarantulas. The day I was there, four ladies were walking around the bus station and market with trays of these arachnids. No, I didn't try one, but I saw several people eating them. You can check out for more photos from Cambodia and Thailand.

Mr. Anderson,
This weekend I traveled to Chicago to enjoy the international soccer match between the national teams of the United States and England. With over 50,000 soccer fans attending including tens of thousands from the "British Invasion," an atmosphere was created rivaled only by the Super Bowl here in the US. Although the contest didn't go our way with the U.S. losing a hard-fought battle 2-1, my trip was made worth my while the next morning. I was shopping for some soccer cleats in Chicago's Niketown when I turned to my left and was within three feet of undoubtedly the world's greatest female athlete, Mia Hamm. After doing a double-take, I asked the superstar if I could have my picture taken with her and she happily obliged. To beat it all, I ended up having a casual five-minute conversation with her concerning the men's game and my soccer career! To say the least, the chance encounter made my trip!

Hi, it is us again, Ron and Stephanie Grider. I just thought I would share a new photo with you. Over the weekend, we went to visit the Nueschwanstein Castle here in Germany (Bavaria). It was a pretty cold day and the boys (Xavier and Isaiah) were not very thrilled with this trip. Hope you enjoy the photo.

God Bless,
The Grider’s

On Friday, May 20th, Park Rangers R.J. Hogue and Jeff Jewell assisted Brownie Troop 327 with a flag ceremony at Barren River State Park. The flag ceremony took place in front of the Lodge and included a color guard to salute the flag, the Pledge of Allegiance and lowering of the flag for the evening. Brownie Troop 327 then concluded their year-end program with the presentation of membership pins, recitation of the the Girl Scout Promise and Law and the Brownie Smile Song. Brownie Emma Steen was recognized for "Living by Law" for an act of consideration and caring, one of the 10 elements of the Girl Scout Law. A "cabin campout" followed and the troop enjoyed a Saturday morning hike led by BRSP Recreation Leader Kim Potts. Brownie Troop 327 thanks all their friends at BRSP for helping them with a wonderful end to the school year.

In the photo above, Park Ranger R.J. Hogue and Park Ranger Jeff Jewell accept the American flag and the Kentucky flag from Brownie Troop 327's color guard during the flag ceremony. The color guard included (L to R) Victoria Watson, Emma Steen, Chelsea Mullins and Allison Shields.

Got this shot Thursday, May 26, 2005, of Theodore Glass & Hunter Hicks driving this Jet Ranger for El Paso Gas (monitoring/checking the pipeline) and stopping in for lunch here in Glasgow. The Glasgow airport furnishes a vehicle for transient pilots as a courtesy service and is much appreciated by these pilots.

Hi, this is my grandson Christian. The picture was taken on his Papa Vore's old truck by his Aunt Deanna. Never thought an old junk truck could look so good! Thought I would share it.

Great Onyx Job Corps Fire Team

Vickie Carson sent us this photo and writes:
Great Onyx Job Corps Fire Team members Romale Lovelace and Tommie Moore, and Mammoth Cave NP Ranger Brian Sacia fueled drip torches in preparation for the April prescribed fires in the park. Teamwork is at the center of the Great Onyx Fire Team.

In February and March 2005, eight young men trained in Basic Firefighting, Introduction to Fire Behavior, and put in 24 hours of field training. In April, they dug fire line, ignited, and held the line on two prescribed fires at Mammoth Cave NP. Now, they are ready and waiting for their next assignment.

"Our success story is about more than fire," said Mammoth Cave Fire Management Officer Rich Caldwell. "Because the first team has done so well, we're expanding the program with Great Onyx Job Corps. In June, twenty more students will be trained for fire duty."

Phyllis Nasados, Director of Great Onyx Job Corps Center, says, "It has been less than six months ago that we implemented the first fire team training for the Great Onyx Job Corps students, and now we have a fully trained and operational fire team, who have participated in three prescribed burns. I see the tremendous impact that the fire team has had upon these students and upon their future aspirations. The most important outcomes of this endeavor have been the increased pride and esprit de corps that the fire team has created among its members."

Mr. Anderson,
Hey! Well, I guess since everyone else is sending pictures, might as well get me at the Toby Keith concert. I'm from Glasgow but right now I'm at Camp Victory, Iraq.
