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.

Patrick Katchak sent us this photo May 30 and writes:
I hope all is well. I went to Wisconsin last week to visit a fellow Glasgow friend, Chris Deckard. As I have told you before, Chris works for the Kohler Company's Golf Operation in Wisconsin. In this picture, we are standing on the 17th tee. It is a par three which, on Saturday, May 27, measured 219 yards. As you can see, there is NO room for error on this hole.

We had the opportunity to spend a week golfing in Wisconsin and wrapped the week up with a trip to Whistling Straits. Whistling held the 2004 PGA Championship, will hold the 2007 Senior's PGA Championship and will also hold the 2020 Ryder Cup. The course is set right on the shores of Lake Michigan. It is a Scottish style golf course, designed by Pete Dye, and is very tough to play. The slope (difficulty) from the back tees is 151. It is regularly ranked in the top 10 of all courses in the U.S.

Thanks for sharing the picture. It is a very special place and the golf is pretty darn good as well!

You're Invited to aid in Lepidoptera Study at Mammoth Cave NP
July 7-9, a dozen amateur lepidopterists are gathering in Mammoth Cave National Park to conduct the second year of an ongoing inventory of Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) in the park. The park is inviting the public to assist in two related activities on Saturday, July 8:

10:00-11:00am, you're invited to join Dr. Jeffrey Marcus of WKU and Dr. Kurt Helf of Mammoth Cave National Park’s Science and Resources Management Division for a free butterfly walk. This is to familiarize outdoor enthusiasts of all ages with the Lepidoptera in the park. Participants will join Dr. Marcus on a walk down to the Green River via the River Styx Spring trail to observe, capture (catch and release), and identify moths and butterflies to assist with the park’s inventory. When participants reach the river, they will check baited traps left the night before for additional moths and butterflies. Interested parties should meet at the pavilion in front of the visitor center.

8:00-9:30pm, Dr. Marcus will erect a mercury vapor lamp and a white sheet to attract night-flying moths at the park’s Maple Springs research facility, north of the Green River Ferry. Participants will observe, capture (catch and release) and identify the attracted species with Dr. Marcus’ assistance as part of Mammoth Cave’s ongoing Lepidoptera inventory.

During last year’s inventory, nearly 1000 spp. of lepidoptera were documented at Mammoth Cave. The lepidopterists also discovered one moth new to science, two moth species found in only one other location in Kentucky, and a population of the Olympia Marble, a particularly beautiful rare butterfly. The park’s Olympia Marble population is one of only four known in Kentucky.

For more information, please call Dr. Marcus at (270) 745-2043 or Dr. Kurt Helf at (270) 758-2163.

The portion facing you when standing was approximately 30 feet off the ground, 27 feet in diameter. #2 is off the stump itself and after the tree was cut, a two-lane bowling alley had been built on the stump. Maybe you can get an idea of the height and size of these trees.

The Tour de Y 5:30am Challenge not only provided fun and incentive for an early morning ride, it also built discipline and promoted a healthy lifestyle for all who participated.

Pictured are some of the participants. Back row, from left… Ted McMurtrey (instructor), Kerry Zalla (instructor), Sue Furlong and Dan Foutch. Front row, from left….

I just wanted to show everyone a wonderful thing my husband, Matt Mutter, did for me. We planned a trip to Las Vegas in July or at least I thought we planned it. Matt had already made arrangements for everything. He had arranged for us to have seats to Reba McEntire's concert at the Las Vegas Hilton on July 23, 2006 three rows from the stage at stage level, meet her after the concert, get her autograph and a photo with her. I was so surprised, I cried. However, he did not tell me until about 30 minutes before the concert so I was not prepared for a picture but that is OK. This was very shocking that he pulled it off without me finding out. Several people knew but didn't tell. Thanks for posting the picture and thanks again to my husband for this. I will always remember.

Also while we were in Las Vegas we were fortunate to meet the famous magician, Lance Burton, who is originally from Adair County. He is such a nice man and great entertainer. I recommend if you ever have the opportunity to see his show, you must!

The photos show a motor vehicle collision that occurred on the afternoon of Saturday, August 26, 2006 on the westbound side of the Louie B. Nunn - Cumberland Parkway just east of the Highway 31-E interchange. Although both occupants of the pictured SUV were wearing seatbelts, the driver of the SUV was trapped in the vehicle and required almost two hours of extrication by the Glasgow Fire Department, EMS personnel and several wrecker services before being freed and flown by STATCARE to University Hospital in Louisville. The passenger in the SUV was transported by the Barren-Metcalfe County EMS to the T.J. Samson Community Hospital.

Miraculously, both SUV occupants have been released from their hospitals and the state trooper, who was conducting a traffic stop, was not in his cruiser at the time of the collison and was not injured. Also assisting at the scene were other KSP officers, members of the Glasgow Police Department. Dr. Kevin Flowers from the T.J. Samson Community Hospital Emergency Department and Kentucky Motor Vehicle Enforcement.

Brett and Kerry were waiting with a Gator utility vehicle to take her down to the dock to view the beauty of the lake. She saw their kayaks on the beach and stated that if she could get in one, it would put her back ten years. Needless to say, they made that dream possible for her. I will always cherish that memory.

Please remember your family and friends in nursing homes and give them a little bit of your time. It is so important to them and it will make you feel great.

On October 14th, the Glasgow Scottie Band traveled to the Stadium of Champions in Hopkinsville to participate in the Christian Co. Tournament of Bands. Very pleased with their performance, the Scotties earned their second Distinguished Rating of the year, placing first in Class AA, Best Colorguard in Class AA, Best Percussion in Class AA as well as Percussion receiving the best score overall. The Scotties also received the People's Choice Award. Next Saturday the band will be performing at McLean County High School at 5:15pm.

The performance "The Quest for The Crown" features three songs; The Quest, Fallen Leaves, and Without Evil, There is No Good. 12-foot panels at the back of the field represent each of these songs. Highlights of the show included the bagpiper's entrance through the drawbridge surrounded in a cloud of fog, the smoke-breathing dragon, and the band formation of G-H-S. A lot of time and energy went into designing and building the props, so we would like to thank the entire prop team for all of their hard work. The teams efforts continue, as it takes many people to transport the panels, hold them up and change the scenes throughout the show.

Dear Bill,
This rainbow picture was taken outside of my home on January 2, 2006. If you look close you will see an image/outline of something in the rainbow. I have shown this picture to several people and, to date, no explanations. Maybe you could post this on the EPB website and I might receive some feedback from others.

Cathy Starr sent us this photo entitled "What I'm Thankful For" and writes:
Hi Bill,
Since we just had Thanksgiving, I wanted to include a photo of my two sons and tell why I am thankful for them, my husband my family and friends and most of all the blessings God has given me. Seven weeks ago I had to have surgery to have my right kidney completely removed due to kidney cancer. At only 28 years old and just having my second child, it was a very scary situation I was faced with. The news of the pathology report showed the cancer was only at stage one and the tubes tested negative for cancer so it had not spread. Kidney cancer is very rare and usually not found until its later stages. My first CAT scans and X-rays showed the tumor in my kidney being 3 inches, but after the surgery the pathology report came back with the tumor size at only an inch and a half! I now am cancer free, and feel very blessed. The meaning of Thanksgiving means something new to me this year and I am thankful to have the surgery behind me and recovering so quickly. This year was a trying year, but I was blessed with my health and blessed with another baby this year. The tumor most likely would not have ever been spotted if not for me having another baby. Miracles happen when you least expect them and I look at the situation of losing a kidney not as a time to be sad, but to be thankful for my life and my blessings this year!

The photo is of my two boys, Blake Starr, age 5, and Andrew Starr, age 4 months. Thanks for letting me share my story!

This is a picture of my mom, Mary Coffey, and me with the bushel gourds we each grew this year. My late stepfather, Doug Coffey, was an avid gardener and saved seeds from almost everything he grew. These gourds were grown from his seeds. Mine measures 64 1/2 " around and Mom's 83". Some of the men in the family also grew gourds from the same seeds but their gourds only came in "honorable mention" and they wouldn't have their picture made with us. Haha.

The fern is lovingly called "Big Bertha" and is absolutely huge! It takes three adults to move it each spring and winter, but it is a gorgeous fern and well worth the effort to keep it alive.

This year, the Glasgow Kiwanis Club has selected the Old Dutch Mill Village for its historical building. The attached pictures give you glimpse at a time long gone. Owned and operated by the parents of Jerry Ream, it was located on South Green Street in Glasgow. The Old Dutch Mill Village included a restaurant, service station and a series of windmill cottages used by travelers. The establishment was extremely unique and very popular among visitors, and it has been included in numerous books, newspaper articles and magazines across America. This ornament joins other historical buildings selected by the Glasgow Kiwanis Club in the past, including the Barren County Court House, the Plaza Theater, Barren River State Resort Lodge, and the first Houchens Grocery Store. We extend a special thank you to Jerry Ream for giving us permission to use the Old Dutch Mill Village on our ornaments this year.

The ornaments cost $10 each and can be purchased at the Glasgow-BC Chamber of Commerce, Glasgow Square Deal Lumber Company, or from any member of the Glasgow Kiwanis Club. Please help us help kids and purchase an ornament for your Christmas tree.
