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.

It really IS true...there's no age limit for folks who believe in Santa!

Santa, who is so very busy on Christmas Eve, took a short break and stopped in at our house for some pictures. Here, he is shown with my mother, Mary Dee Carter. When asked what she wanted for Christmas, she replied, "To continue to be able to work!"

Just wanted to share this with the "kids" everywhere!

From Kentucky to Haiti - Barren County High School Students Participate in Haiti Relief Efforts

Barren County High School FCA, Social Studies and Y Clubs are encouraging BCHS students to give to the people of Haiti. Items needed include bags of dry rice and dry beans, and peanut butter. “Without a doubt, the earthquake in Haiti has caused a “disaster of epic proportions,” as one commentator recently described it. Due to the unprecedented needs, I felt it would be appropriate to allow the clubs that I sponsor have the opportunity to hold a drive for the people of Haiti,” expressed Sponsor Todd Steenbergen.

Through LifeLine, NW Haiti Christian Mission, and Waves of Mercy (all legitimate relief organizations), requests have gone out for the following items: rice, beans, peanut butter, and white sheets (to bury the dead in). These items may be turned in to Mr. Steenbergen’s room through Friday, January 29th by the end of the school day. They will be transported to Coral Hill Baptist Church for collection on the following Sunday, then from there taken to Versailles, Kentucky. From there, items will be loaded onto a Ryder truck and driven to Miami, and from that location, supplies will be loaded onto boats to be shipped to Haiti. Due to the damage at Port Au Prince, items will be delivered to other ports, possibly Port Au Paix.

The needs are overwhelming and will affect the entire country. LynDonna Nothstine, who is coordinating the local effort, learned just two nights ago that three busloads of children and adults, many injured, were dropped off in Port Au Paix. They don’t even have enough beds for the people to comfortably rest. It is now estimated that as many as 200,000 have perished in the past week. Thousands of people are unaccounted for, and the need for help will continue for some time.

At this time, the Barren County High School groups will only be collecting the above items. Please do not bring any money. If folks would like to donate money, there are plenty of ways to do so through organizations like the American Red Cross, etc. Students may drop off their items in between the school store and bank through Friday, January 29th.

Barren County High School Junior Haley Hagan is shown giving dry rice, dry beans and peanut butter to Todd Steenbergen, BCHS Social Studies teacher.

Park honors three law enforcement careers

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK – January 22, 2010) Twenty years is a long time. On December 17, 2009, Mammoth Cave staff honored three park staff (two retirees and one superintendent) who each served 20 years as law enforcement officers. Max Vincent, Richard Strange, and Superintendent Patrick Reed received special law enforcement credentials from the National Park Service.

“These are called retirement credentials because a ranger is required to retire from law enforcement after 20 years,” said Chief Ranger Wayne Elliott. “Each of these men carried a badge and a gun, protecting park lands and visitors. Park rangers must demonstrate a calm and friendly demeanor to visitors, but also be prepared to make an arrest.”

Max Vincent worked at Mammoth Cave from 1974 to 1993. He patrolled the roads, trails, backcountry and rivers. Max, who was born on park land, trained up many young rangers, imparting his first hand knowledge of park resources. He and his wife, Dee, reside in Edmonson County.

Dick Strange spent 32 years with the National Park Service, at Lassen Volcanic NP (Ca.), Organ Pipe Cactus NM (Ariz.), Big Bend NP (Texas), Cape Cod NS (Mass.), and Mammoth Cave NP. He retired in 1987 as chief ranger at Mammoth Cave. Dick and his wife, Flo, reside in Barren County.

Patrick Reed, superintendent of Mammoth Cave NP, has clocked in 39 years with the NPS, and like the battery bunny is still going. His other parks include Natchez Trace Parkway (Miss.), Rocky Mountain NP (Colo.), Cape Hatteras NS (N.C.), Wilson’s Creek NB (Mo.), Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP (Calif.), Death Valley NP (Calif.), Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (Mo.), Grand Teton NP (Wyo.), and Mount Rushmore NM (S.D.). Pat and his wife, Darit, live in Bowling Green.

“To the credit of these gentlemen, I must add that rangering is no walk in the park,” said Elliott. “Just here at Mammoth Cave we deal with search and rescues – both surface and underground – marijuana plots, poaching, archeological looting, medical emergencies, domestic complaints, drug arrests, motor vehicle accidents, and our rangers also assist county officers upon request. We are very pleased to honor Max, Dick and Superintendent Reed with these special credentials as a sign of our respect and gratitude for their years of service and dedication to the National Park Service.”

Edmonson County emergency personnel help Mammoth Cave rangers train during a mock accident

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK – January 26, 2010) Mammoth Cave National Park recently teamed up with Edmonson County emergency response teams to host EMS skills refresher training.

The purpose of the training, which was held at Mammoth Cave, was to assess the capacity and resources of multiple organizations, test the effectiveness of inter-agency cooperation, and improve communications. The mock-accident scene was designed to examine established policies, plans, procedures, training, and equipment in order to determine best practices.

Coordinators of the training exercise included Mammoth Cave law enforcement ranger Brian Sacia; Edmonson County Emergency Management Director, Pat Prunty; and Edmonson County EMS Director, Keith Sanders. Cooperating agencies were Mammoth Cave National Park, Edmonson County Emergency Management, EMS, Dispatch, and Jaws of Life. Both Kyrock and Park City volunteer fire departments also participated in the training exercise.

“It is Mammoth Cave’s responsibility to be ready for any situation that could occur in the park” said Chief Law Enforcement Ranger Wayne Elliott.

The training staged a several-hour, full-scale mass casualty incident in which a passenger vehicle collided with a Mammoth Cave Hotel tour bus. Sixteen volunteers and park staff received written instructions in how to play victims in the accident. Several volunteers were staged as unconscious victims in a van; they were eventually extracted using the Jaws of Life. The remaining actors on the bus “suffered” varying degrees of injury including head trauma, bleeding, heart problems, and disorientation.

Leslie Price, a Mammoth Cave park ranger who played an injured tour guide, said, “This exercise helped prepare everyone to coordinate a response to a real-life traffic accident in the park."

Mammoth Cave personnel and local emergency services agencies responsible for response in the park had their hands full when they arrived at the mock accident scene. "It was a difficult scene to manage and control, but our staff and local emergency responders did an excellent job in rapidly and efficiently triaging and treating victims," explained Mammoth Cave law enforcement ranger Josh Clemons.

Pat Prunty, Edmonson County Emergency Management Director, expressed his satisfaction with the training during the after-action review following the exercise. “I think it is beneficial for government organizations to work together and coordinate a response to a possible accident,” said Prunty.

Coordinator Brian Sacia was also pleased with the inter-agency cooperation and training accomplished during the EMS skills refresher. Sacia said, “The experience gained from responding quickly in a learning environment may mean the difference between life and death for a real patient in an actual incident."

Bill, these are some of the photos I took when I went to Virginia this weekend to celebrate my daughter, Miranda's, birthday. The 8 to 10 inches fell on top of some of the 15 inch snowfall that was still there from the weekend before. When the electricity went out, we just took the celebration to a local historic hotel that offered a snowfall special. It's amazing what this road looked like 24 hours later after the local street department and some sunshine worked on the roads. These work crews whether here or Virginia or wherever do great work keeping us safe with their grader blades and a bit of salt.

(upper photo) For the 2nd Annual Barren County High School “Pink Out”, the BC Athletic Booster Club sold over 1,200 t-shirts and donated 50% of the profit to the BCHS Relay for Life Team. The donation was presented at the “Pink Out” on February 2, 2010. Bruce Simmons, Vice President of the BCHS Athletic Booster Club, presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to Felicia Montgomery, BCHS Relay for Life team member. FBLA members assisted in designing and selling the shirts. Pictured are: Bruce Simmons, Felicia Montgomery, Miranda McKinney, Morgan Atwell, Emily Gentry and Taylor Montgomery.

(lower photo) The 2nd Annual Barren County High School “Pink Out” was held on Tuesday, February 2nd at the BCHS gymnasium and was a huge success. Over 1200 Barren County and Greenwood Fans participated in the “Pink Out” event to raise awareness for breast cancer which was sponsored by BCHS, the BCHS Athletic Booster Club, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and the National Guard. Contributions for the “Pink Out” included pink basketballs and t-shirts sponsored by the National Guard and pink bandannas sponsored by BCHS. Bruce Simmons, Vice President of the BCHS Athletic Booster Club, presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to Felicia Montgomery, BCHS Relay for Life team member. “It was a touching night to see so much support for such a good cause,” expressed Mr. Keith Hale, Barren County High School Principal.

The “Pink Out” at Barren County High School originated in 2009 when members of the Trojanette basketball team had family members with breast cancer. Players approached Coach John Butler about recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month. When approached by Coach Butler, Mr. Hale thought it was a great idea and the first BCHS “Pink Out” was born. Last year pink shirts were sold and the entire district was involved with the assistance of the girls’ basketball team, FCCLA and FBLA. This year, the Athletic Booster Club and FBLA members assisted with designing and selling Pink Out 2010 shirts with ½ of the profit being donated to the BCHS Relay for Life Team.

Repairing the Heinous Work of Vandals

Seasoned cave restorer Jim Werker concentrates on repairing vandalized gypsum in Crystal Cave. Photos by Val Hildreth-Werker

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK – February 5, 2010) Click—it’s the sensation of fitting together two jagged pieces of a delicate, crystalline cave formation known as gypsum. This past fall, New Mexico natives Jim Werker and Val Hildreth-Werker worked in Mammoth Cave National Park’s Crystal Cave, diligently searching for that “click”. They repaired damage that occurred in 1995 when three vandals broke formations along a mile of passageway. At the time, park law enforcement rangers recovered 600 pounds of stolen gypsum and returned it to Crystal Cave.

Now, 14 years later, and with new methods, Jim, Val, and their helper, Doug Soroka, search for just the right pieces of gypsum to match together and reattach to the walls. Val, a professional photographer, says piecing together gypsum formations is “like working a giant 3-D jigsaw puzzle from the inside out.”

The Werkers are seasoned cave restorers; Jim got his start in caves in the Guadalupe Mountains in 1978. Val began repairing formations when she and Jim met while caving in the 1990’s. Together they have brought their skill to two-hundred caves including New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns, Oregon Caves National Monument, and Arizona’s Kartchner Caverns. The couple literally wrote the book on cave restoration – Cave Conservation and Restoration describes innovative techniques to repair damaged formations. The Werkers were also the first to discover how to fix broken gypsum formations, a more difficult task than repairing stalactites and stalagmites.

Legendary cave explorer Floyd Collins discovered Crystal Cave in 1917. In January of 1925 he brought attention to the cave region when he became trapped in Sand Cave and died there. Restoring the splendor of Crystal Cave is no walk in the park; gypsum is extremely brittle, making it difficult to handle.

“Crystal Cave is an enormous challenge for the Werkers,” said Rick Toomey, director of the Mammoth Cave International Center for Science and Learning. Usually when they do cave restoration the pieces are in their original location. In this case, specimens were taken out, jumbled about, and bleached for sale.”

The restoration process is intricate and time consuming. The team often puts in 8 to 10-hour days. They must find the matching pieces, glue them back together, and attach the finished product to the wall using stainless steel rods.

“The big thing is figuring out how to rig it so it will stay in place,” said Jim. “We use a lot of bungee cords and small clamps. It takes several days for the glue to set.” Once the epoxy is dry it can withstand 50,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. Afterwards the seams and bolts are undetectable. The completed walls are even dusted with a loose powdering of cave dirt so that the colors match.

“We’ll work on an area until we get tired, and then move on to a new area, which gives us a fresh perspective,” Jim added. “We walk a lot of miles in a day.”

“We get intimately involved in the process,” Val explained. “Sometimes I can just walk along the passage and see a piece and think aha! I know where this goes.”

Crystal Cave has long been famous for its beautiful gypsum crusts and flowers. Now thanks to the skilled efforts of Jim, Val, and Doug it will also be known for gypsum restoration.

Hello!
I was saddened to learn that Wondering Woods has been demolished. I visited the Tranquil Valley Village in the summer of 1974 as a cast member of a movie that filmed several scenes there. (It was for our production that the cobblestones were painted on the walkways!)

I have found very little about the old place online, so I thought I'd share the Wondering Woods footage from the movie with those who may have sentimental memories of the old attraction. Take a look at it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmQ9i3lO-WA. I also uploaded a scan of the 1970's brochure here: http://whimsicalwill.tripod.com/WonderingWoods.html.

Slovenian Scientist visits Mammoth Cave

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK –February 19, 2010) On Friday February 12 Mammoth Cave National Park expanded its family of partners by adding new “sisters” in Slovenia. A signing ceremony between Mammoth Cave, Western Kentucky University, and the Karst Research Institute of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts established a cooperative arrangement to share scientific research.

Mammoth Cave Superintendent Patrick Reed said, “As a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, Mammoth Cave is reaching out to other nations and internationally renowned karst areas. This is a great opportunity to work with our long-standing partner Western Kentucky University and forge new connections with our Slovenian friends.”

Participating in the signing were Superintendent Reed, Dr. Janez Mulec of the Slovenian Karst Research Institute, Dr. Blaine Ferrell, Dean of Ogden College of Science and Engineering, and Dr. Chris Groves, Director of the Hoffman Institute at Western Kentucky University.

Dr. Mulec traveled to Kentucky representing the Slovenian partners – Skocjan Caves, Postojna Cave, and the Slovenian Karst Research Institute. “Skocjan is a World Heritage Site and Postojna receives around 500,000 visitors a year, making it a top tourist destination,” said Mulec. “The Slovenian karst landscape is very similar to south central Kentucky with numerous sinkholes and limestone caves. As cave managers, we share many similar issues.”

While visiting Kentucky, Dr. Mulec focused on his specialty of lampenflora, or algae and green plants that grow around cave lighting. He said, “I toured sections of Mammoth Cave to observe these plants. We are actively working to remove lampenflora in Slovenian caves because it detracts from the beauty of caves. It also disrupts the cave eco-system by introducing a new source of energy into the food chain.”

Dr. Rick Toomey of the Mammoth Cave International Center for Science and Learning looks forward to cooperating with Slovenian scientists to exchange technology to remove green plants. “This arrangement will enable us to work with Slovenian scientists to explore methods to remove lampenflora, and avoid harming cave animals or damaging formations.”

The Friends of Mammoth Cave National Park, with the help of Bluegrass Cellular, sponsored a Greenwood High School environmental science class as they participate in a workshop inside Mammoth Cave with Dr. Mulec. The students also attended the signing ceremony at the Mammoth Cave Hotel.

From Kentucky to Haiti – BCHS Students Donate to Haiti Relief Efforts

Barren County High School FCA, Social Studies and Y Clubs efforts to give to the people of Haiti had overwhelming results. “Without a doubt, the earthquake in Haiti has caused a “disaster of epic proportions,” as one commentator recently described it. Due to the unprecedented needs, I felt it would be appropriate to allow the clubs that I sponsor have the opportunity to hold a drive for the people of Haiti,” expressed Sponsor Todd Steenbergen. As a result, the Barren County High School community was asked to donate items such as bags of dry rice and dry beans, and peanut butter.

Students throughout the student body were influenced by this international community service project. “Being a member of the Y Club and a part of Coral Hill, I was very pleased to see how the high school students were aware of the gravity of the situation in Haiti and how they answered the call to help in this horrendous situation,” shared Y Club member Cameron Lile.

Through LifeLine, NW Haiti Christian Mission, and Waves of Mercy (all legitimate relief organizations), requests have gone out for the following items: rice, beans, peanut butter, and white sheets (to bury the dead in). Donated items were transported to Coral Hill Baptist Church for collection on Sunday, January 31, and from there were taken to Versailles, Kentucky. From there, items will be loaded onto a Ryder truck and driven to Miami, and from that location, supplies will be loaded onto boats to be shipped to Haiti. Due to the damage at Port Au Prince, items will be delivered to other ports, possibly Port Au Paix.

Officers and members of Barren County High School FCA, Social Studies and Y Clubs thank the community and student body for their donations.

Cedar trees and exotic plants are being removed from a barrens restoration site along the Mammoth Cave Parkway...

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK –March 3, 2010) In the past decade, staff at Mammoth Cave National Park have worked to increase the diversity of the surface side of the park. To date, four barrens, or prairies, thrive at Wondering Woods, Great Onyx Job Corps, and on Flint Ridge. Another, along the Mammoth Cave Parkway near Park City, is presently in an awkward stage of change and growth.

“I compare our progress on this new barren to adolescence,” said Superintendent Patrick Reed. “We are cutting trees to expose the ground to sunlight and the area looks a bit rough right now. We expect seed stock in the ground will sprout in the spring and summer. Please bear with us through these growing pains – it will be beautiful in another year or so.”

The project began in November 2008, when cedars and pines were removed from about 71 acres on either side of the parkway. Now other trees and exotics are being cut to open the canopy and allow sunlight to reach the ground. The sunlight will allow dormant seeds left by prairie plants years ago to germinate.

“Unlike the other prairie sites in the park, which were planted, this time we are allowing previous grassland to restore itself,” said Rick Olson, park ecologist. “In 2009, we saw many prairie species pop up on their own – native sunflowers, butterfly milkweed, lobelia, asters, and tall coreopsis.” At the other sites, woody and exotic species were removed with heavy equipment and herbicides, and then planted in prairie grasses and flowering plants.

“The edge – where forest and open areas meet – is important to many birds and mammals,” said Olson. “The barrens, for which Barren County is named, once covered hundreds of thousands of acres out on the Sinkhole Plain. Restoring these karst grasslands will help provide habitat for many wildflower species that simply have almost no place to grow.”

Portions of Mammoth Cave RR Bike & Hike trail will be temporarily closed between the park boundary at Park City and the top of the hill at Chaumont.

“For safety, we are asking the public to use other sections of the trail while this work in underway,” said Reed.

Bill,
The recent death of the truly larger than life television icon Fess Parker brought back fond memories of a late May, 1995 visit to Disneyland in Anaheim, California. I was privileged to meet the late Mr. Parker who was as friendly and warm-hearted in person as one might have imagined. He greeted each person who lined up to meet him with a gracious smile and a bit of personal conversation, taking time to listen and laugh. Here is the photo memento of that day.

On March 23, 2010 Mayor Darrell Pickett and County Judge Executive Davie Greer signed a proclamation designating March 21 thru 27th, 21010 as National Surveyors Week. In attendance for the signing were from left to right standing behind Mayor Pickett and Judge Greer are Ashton McPherson, PLS of Leftwich Land Surveying, Inc., Joe Leftwich, PLS of Leftwich Land Surveying, Inc., Thaddaeus Lucas, PE, PLS of Landmark Engineering, Inc., Don Pedigo, PLS of DDS Engineering, PLLC, Bob Neuhaus, PLS of American Engineers, Inc., Mark Billingsley, PLS of Tri-County Surveying, LLC, and Jim MsGowan, PLS of American Engineers, Inc.

The proclamation states:

National Surveyors Week, March, 21st to 27th 2010

The honorable and historic profession of surveying has been in existence since the very dawn of civilization. From the “rope stretchers” of ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire and into modern society, the surveyor has been an essential part of man’s development.

During the Colonial Era and the early days of the United States of America, many of the leaders of this country served not only their fellow citizens, but were actively engaged as land surveyors at some point in their career. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln set the standard for diligence, service and ethics which still guides the efforts of the modern surveyor.

The licensed Professional Surveyor is uniquely qualified to research the documents, maps, and other information necessary to establish the location of land boundaries. This ensures that the land owner’s property lines will be properly and correctly marked on the ground. The modern professional surveyor is often involved in providing other services such as Photogrammetry, GIS and Hydrography. The professional surveyor is able to accurately measure the land and develop maps, plats and reports for many useful purposes.

In recognition of the groundwork laid by our forefathers, and the ongoing dedication of the present day surveyors we, do hereby issue this proclamation designating March 21st to 27th, 2010 as NATIONAL SURVEYORS WEEK. Surveyors, and their respective professional societies, are encouraged to publicize this proclamation, and to promote a better understanding of the profession among all Americans.

John, a first grader at Potter Gray Elementary, Bowling Green, was in the primary division(1st – 3rd grades). He took home the 5th place overall medal for the primary division, which was the highest ranking for his school, and his team took first place in the overall primary division.

The first picture is of Jerri Clark, AmeriCorps member from Barren County Middle School, and her family who volunteered at the 24 hour Build-A-Bed Blitz in Frankfort this past weekend where 545 beds were built for children across the state who didn’t have a bed of their own. Along with the bed, children received bedding items such as blankets, sheets, night lights, books, etc. Mattresses were provided for some of the beds. Locally nine children were recipients of these beds and other items!

In addition two more AmeriCorps members from Barren County volunteered their time along with their families, Jennie Leamon who serves at Red Cross Elementary and Angela Ludwig from Hiseville Elementary. Nearly 850 volunteers participated in this event. Volunteers came from as far away as Pennsylvania, Mississippi, and California. The Hoopa Tribe in California even sent a team of AmeriCorps members to help with the Build.

The second picture is of the actual event which was held at the Boone National Guard Armory.

For more information or to assist with providing mattresses for the remaining recipients, please contact Donna Brown, AmeriCorps Assistant Program Director at (270) 453-3205 or donna.brown@barren.kyschools.us.

BCMS congratulates Dylan Howard and Andrew Cotton for receiving 1st place in Bench Challenge; Jonathan Bunnell and Tyler Hensley received 1st place for School News Broadcast; Dylan Howard and Tyler Hensley received 1st place for Technical Writing and Help Desk; Morgan Thomas, Preston McFarland and Ryan Gaines placed 2nd for their PSA video about our local animal shelter, BRAWA; Kara Beth Wheeler and Shelby Lowe received an Honorable Mention for their PSA video about Internet Safety; Mikayla Carter received 3rd place for her digital storytelling entitled, “The True Born” and Jaylan Ford received Honorable Mention for her storytelling.

Mary Wood Weldon Memorial Library welcomed author Holly Goddard Jones on Thursday evening, May 13, to read from her story “Allegory of a Cave.” Ms. Jones stated that one of the challenges of fiction is everyone asking if a certain character is based on someone she knows. Her response is that she takes a grain of truth, such as an expression her father used, “Cry me a handful”, when she was having a pity party and uses the expression in a different context. She was very open to questions from her audience and shared some college experiences that helped her develop her literary fiction writing style. She concluded by sharing that she is now working on a novel.

Glasgow firefighters were doing their annual hose testing last week at the old Wal-Mart parking lot when a young man and his mother stopped by to see if Jonathan could see the fire trucks. The firefighters stopped what they were doing to let the youngster get a up close and personal look at the fire truck, and while they were at it they let Jonathan operate the hose line. We feel fortunate to be able to serve in such a great community, and the firefighters are always willing to stop and show others what it is like to be a firefighter if but just for a minute.

Hello Mr. Anderson. The Evening Primroses are in bloom at the Glasgow Garden Club Native Plant site along the walking trail at Weldon Park. The Evening Primrose is a Native American wildflower. Plants may reach 4-5 ft tall. Leaves are rough-hairy and are lemon-scented. The entire plant is reported to be edible and have medicinal qualities if harvested and prepared correctly. It is also reported that it was a staple food for many Native American tribes. It requires full sun and is self sowing. The benefits of native trees and plants are low maintenance and provides a good source of food for butterflies and birds.

Walk the trail for health and fitness..... enjoy the flowers along the way.
