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.

A few days ago we sent a picture of my son at his little sister's birthday. Well, as you can see, this was his day when he walked the line at WKU. We just wanted to tell him in public how proud his family and his Dad are of him. He has worked very hard to acheive his goal. And remember how proud of you we are, Eric. Your Mom would be very proud, also!

Before Christmas my daughter, Ella, asked Santa for three things. She wanted a bouncer (2 year old's word for trampoline), some mouses (she got that idea from Cinderella), and Daddy home from Raq forever and ever and ever. Lucky girl got everything she wanted! Ella loved the trampoline and the dwarf hamsters she got, but nothing under the tree lit her face up like seeing her Daddy walking toward us that evening. I hope she never loses that memory. I know I won't.

It was a long year for the soldiers and families of the 1/623rd but they are home now. Best wishes to all members of the 1/623rd and their families. Special blessings to the Toth family.

*Thanks to you, WebMeister, for giving the folks of Glasgow little glimpses of our soldiers throughout the year. It has been great to turn on the computer and see Joe or other members of the unit that we all know. It always makes them famous for a day or two. They get lots of "fan mail" for a few days. Great to see that kind of support. They needed all the support from home they could get.

So much to be thankful for!!!

I hope everybody had a good holiday season in Glasgow. Attached is a picture of Chris Deckard and me at Lambeau Field. We had tickets in the front row of the end zone. If you look closely, Brett Farve is in the background in a huddle. It was a great game and unseasonably warm for a New Year's Day game (40°). The Packers won but not before Shaun Alexander (Boone County, Kentucky native and Seattle Seahawk) set the all-time touchdown scoring mark in one year with 28.

I was in Wisconsin visiting my in-laws and Chris is currently living there working for the Kohler Company's golf operation. It was a shame we couldn't get out and play golf at Whisling Straits this time! Have a great day and Happy New Year!

This was taken in the Smoky Mountains, on New Year's Eve. We were heading to the Atlantic Ocean in South Carolina and we found out that the mountain road was closed due to a snowstorm the day before. On the way back, we were able to cross the mountain. There was still quite a bit of snow on the mountaintop, but they had salted the road really well. There were a lot of people up there, and quite a few of them were throwing snowballs and sledding. The Smokies are soooo beautiful!

On Friday, January 13, the Glasgow Shrine Club traveled to the Kosair Shrine Temple in Louisville to make a presentation to the Kosair Charities. This year, the club raised $24,500 to help the kids. This accomplishment was made possible by selling candy, a golf scramble and donations. Since 1971, the Glasgow Shrine Club has donated over $440,000 to the Kosair Charities! Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone for your continued support and generosity and remember that when a Shriner asks you for a donation, every penny goes to the Kosair Kids.

Les Bale does the Penguin Plunge for JA!
South Central Bank Beaver Trail office manager and lender Les Bale, III rose to the challenge and plunged into an icy pool of water on Saturday morning, Feb. 10. Although it may seem crazy, Les did so with 19 other plungers who were nominated to jump for Junior Achievement of Barren County. The event was held at the Marquee 8 Cinemas parking lot in Glasgow after a 20 degree night and three inches of snow. The antics proved to be a successful fundraising event for the JA organization, as more than $6,700 was raised, $500 of which Les turned in personally. The money raised by the plungers will go to help impact more than 1,500 students in Barren County. With nearly 60 classes projected this year, the money raised will help educate kids about business economics of life.

As for the Cupid costume? Well, Les gives his lovely wife Lisa Bale creative props for helping him earn the top award for the costume contest. He says he just figured it was appropriate for the Valentine's Day season. While he was still shivering, he expressed interest in jumping again next year, but thought a few companions from South Central Bank would be nice. For more information on the Junior Achievement program in Glasgow, contact JA director Michelle Harrell by email at

Leapin' Lizards? It's Annie Jr. at North Metcalfe Elementary School! Annie (Shelby Peden) is a wonderful story about a 10-year-old girl in the depression era of our nation's history. Her dream is to find the parents who left her on the doorstep of the orphanage and have a family. The orphans that play her friends are wonderful (Faylee Brown, Briana Scott, Brittany Scott, Kiara Horton, Harmony Parks, MaKensey Edwards, Lizzie Wilson, Martina Chapman, Leah Rock). As the story goes on, she is chosen to live with billionaire Oliver Warbucks (Seth Jessie) for a week as a publicity tactic. Well, she grew on him and he sent out a search for her parents but couldn't find them because none of them knew about the broken locket that Annie had around her neck. It's a heartwarming story with great music and singing! Other characters were Riley Gardner, Corey Parnell, Dylan Gardner, Candice Gossett, Chris England and Kristin Compton.

In the first picture, I am with one of my best friends who was in the program with me, and the other is the Governor's office because he could not attend due to his recent surgery. Though it was great to see everyone again, we still completed our goal and were guaranteed the same funding (if not more), which is well over one million dollars.

Thanks again,
Mallory Mudd

Blenda Chapman sent us this photo entitled "Snowbathing" and writes:
I found this so interesting, creative and funny. This picture was taken in Glasgow as I was leaving a friend's house. Since my family call me a "beach nut," I just had to stop at the roadside and take a picture. I live in Glasgow to work part of the week, and live with my family in Paducah the rest of the week. I sent them this photo, and told them "THIS is sunbathing, Glasgow style."

I thought it showed a lot of planning and creativity. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.

The picture doesn't do justice to the breathtaking beauty of the chapel. We were told that if someone wants to be married in the church, it must be booked 5 years in advance. Thanks.

Leslie Green sent us this photo and writes:
Mr. Anderson, I just wanted to let you know who the snow bathing woman belonged to. My name is Leslie Green and I live on Pebble Drive. I never sent in my photo because by the time I got my photos developed it was a week later, so I thought it was too late. But it is funny that someone else took a photo and sent her in to share with everyone. I have always seen a lot of different things in magazines from families that live up north, but we usually don't get enough snow here to do anything like this. It was a lot of fun putting her together.

This is the other snowman that we also built that day. I have told everyone that this is my husband standing guard over our daughter while she is sunbathing - notice the gun in hand. I know that someone sent the photo of just the girl snowman, but I thought you should get the "whole picture." We had a lot of fun making them. We were so happy to finally get a nice amount of snow. I hope everyone will get a kick out of the photo.

Shortly after this photo was taken, I was on that highway and involved in a hit and run accident which destroyed our vehicle. We were only "saved" by the use of our seat belts - we were fortunate to have them on. Not always used, easily ignored, but useful at the right time.

On a second note, I have to tell you that the phrase "break a leg" took on a whole new meaning for this young performer. On the night of dress rehearsal, she took a fall that sent us scurrying to the Urgent Care Clinic for immediate medical attention. Although there were no broken bones, we were concerned for a deep puncture wound that needed to be patched up. I'm sure it's not too often they have a green glitter-dusted fairy in their surgery.

Why were the lights out on Friday?
This is a section of the Summer Shade to East Bowling Green TVA 161kV line (161,000 volts). Glasgow is presently served from this line and, when it tripped off, so did all the power in Glasgow. According to TVA officials, a cattle trailer was lifted by the tornado and carried into the line which caused the damage depicted. Repairs to the line should be complete by mid-week and our power feed will return to normal.

Amy Dickson of the Chamber of Commerce sent us these photos and writes:
Administrative Professionals Day "You're a Star" was celebrated April 26. A large crowd attended a luncheon prepared by the Chamber's Administrative Professional's Day Committee. Barbara Toth was the special guest speaker who spoke on what being a star really means, and praised all administrative professionals that put forth such an effort and that their work should never go unnoticed.

For the second year in a row, an outstanding Administrative Professional of the Year was chosen. This year's recipient was Nellie Pickett from WCLU/Royse Radio. Nellie has been with WCLU for thirteen years, and works in an environment that covers news, including the war in Iraq, while having a son actually deployed in Iraq, in 2005. Nellie's job is to report birthdays, ballgame cancellations, school closings, national and local news, obituaries and swap and shop items and to make sure commercials are played and billed properly. Nellie is a true Administrative Professional and goes above and beyond her duties regardless of challenges both professional and personal. Congratulations, Nellie!

LaVelda Faull sent us this photo and writes:
I thought you might be interested in something that my brother-in-law, Barry Nothstine, Sr., wrote on his Zanga site "SoulFreq" on the Internet. He posted three hilarious reports about the attempted theft of the large Yogi Bear that normally stands in front of Jellystone Park in Cave City. With his last posting, he included a photo of his son Caleb hugging the returned Yogi (which I have also attached). I asked Barry if I could forward it to the newspaper, but don't know of one in Cave City. Here is his reply to whether or not I could submit it to the papers or to others:

"Sure you can forward it. This was like 3rd in a series... I will forward you the others. The story is very true, Caleb and I noticed Yogi missing, and I posted. Then I called Jellystone out of curiosity and, sure enough, there was an ATTEMPTED theft... apparently botched. They tried to steal him and couldn't get him in the truck or something. It is HUGE and probably very heavy. Anyway... Jellystone hid him in one of their sheds for a while so the thieves would not try again. A few weeks ago, Yogi returned, and they have even given him a nice new coat of paint."

And now you know the rest of the story...

Vickie Carson sent us this photo and writes:
"In recognition of his selfless actions in saving the life of a man who was threatening suicide…" So begins the citation honoring Park Ranger Brad McDougal. McDougal and his wife, Pat, traveled to Washington, D.C., May 4, 2006 to receive the Valor Award, the Department of the Interior’s most distinguished honor.

"We are very proud of Brad and how he responded that night back in 2004," said Superintendent Patrick Reed. "The State Police alerted the park to the possibility of this young man’s actions. Brad arrived on the scene first, and in a calm and reassuring manner, he was able to disarm the man. When back up arrived, they found the whole situation to be stabilized."

The citation goes on to note: "…The officers present during this incident strongly believe that Ranger McDougal certainly saved this individual’s life by his quick, decisive action and his professional and appropriate demeanor. Handling this volatile situation in any other manner could have easily resulted in tragedy. For his selfless actions in the face of danger, Ranger Brad McDougal is granted the Valor Award of the Department of the Interior." -- Signed, Gale A. Norton, Secretary of the Interior.

The Valor Award is presented to Department of the Interior employees who have demonstrated unusual courage involving a high degree of personal risk in the face of danger. Recipients receive a special certificate and citation signed by the Secretary and an engraved gold Valor award medal.

Wanted to share this photo of the Glasgow High School Baseball Team, taken May 25th after they defeated Allen County-Scottsville in the District Tournament to win the 15th District Championship. They advanced to the Region 4 Tournament and were victorious over Greenwood in the first round. They were defeated in the semi-final round with a score of 4-3 by a very good Russell County team. It was a great run for this young team who struggled early in the season. On April 11, they provided their Coach Sam Royse with his 500th career win. We weren't sure at that time if he would see 501 this season. On May 8, this team was 10-17, but, this fine group of young men pulled it together playing with the hearts of champions and won 8 straight games, ending the season with an 18-18 record. We are very proud of our Scottie Baseball Team! Congratulations to all the players and worked hard for this one!

Here's a picture of my mom, Artie Bolley. She's here in Glasgow visiting from Michigan. We took her out for her birthday and she had a great time so I thought it would be added fun to have this on the Glasgow Website. Even from Michigan, she checks the site almost daily to stay connected.

Have a great day,

Imagine my surprise to be walking down the street in Sendai, Japan, and see a guy wearing a T-shirt from good old 88, Kentucky! Sendai is a city of over a million people and the capital of Japan's Miyagi Prefecture. It is about two hours north of Tokyo.

Here's a picture just to prove I'm not making this up.

Wanted to show how much fun these young gentlemen are having on their summer vacation. They all came to Trenton's house to swim and have a blast! In this pic, they were trying to fit all seven onto this float, needless to say, they did accomplish it for a split second. They are all great friends and make wonderful memories together.

Hey, Bill,
I shot this at 10:05pm Thursday night just after the majority of the thunderstorm passed through Glasgow. I shot a lot of pix to catch the lightning just a few times, but this was the most impressive flash (streak, display, bolt, etc.).

This is a photo of Heather Garrett, shown celebrating her 24th birthday with co-workers from American Engineers. She was quite surprised when they started singing & clapping and even more surprised by the "face painting"! I have always ate my ice-cream to cool off on a hot day, I think Heather found a new way to cool off!!!

Eddie Wells Named Best Ranger in NPS Southeast Region
Eddie Wells, Mammoth Cave NP ranger, has been recognized as a 2006 Harry Yount Award winner, naming him the best ranger in the Southeast Region of the National Park Service.

"Being a ranger in the National Park Service requires an individual to have effective leadership skills, adaptability to change, and a strong work ethic," said Superintendent Patrick Reed. "Eddie exemplifies every aspect of an outstanding ranger." Wells’ citation lists accomplishments, knowledge, and skills that are imbedded in his typical workday.

"…He has the uncommon ability to effectively communicate with a wide range of people and put them at ease, even during situations that have the potential to become confrontational. Eddie uses this ability on a daily basis to educate and inform park visitors and employees on issues ranging from emergency medical care procedures, park regulations and law, and even the history associated with Mammoth Cave during the War of 1812."

"From felony law enforcement investigations, to emergency medical incidents, to instructing the visitor about the special purpose the National Park system serves, Eddie Wells has proven time and time again that he embraces the ranger ideal," added Reed. "Eddie conducts himself and approaches his job in the true tradition of a National Park ranger."

Named after Harry Yount, the first Park Ranger, the award is the hallmark of recognition as a NPS Ranger. The peer-nominated award not only seeks to recognize and honor outstanding rangers, but to encourage high standards of performance; foster an especially responsive attitude toward public service; enhance the public’s appreciation of the Park Ranger profession; and further the art and science of ‘rangering.’

Wells was one of seven regional award recipients. The Southeast Region of the NPS is made up of 60 parks located in nine states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

June 8th-11th my fiance, Grant Landrum, and his dad, Mike Landrum, took me to the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. While there, we got to meet many country music stars including John Michael Montgomery, Aaron Tippin and Buddy Jewell. At night, we got to attend concerts at the Coliseum put on by many of my favorite country artists such as Carrie Underwood and Dierks Bentley. John Ratzenberger, better known as "Cliff" from the TV show "Cheers" also made an appearance. We had such a great time on this trip and I can't wait to go back!
