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.

All of these kids worked very hard and I am sure that I speak for everyone in our county when I say that we are very proud of all of them. A big thank you goes to the teachers & faculty from both schools who take time out of their already busy schedules to help the kids so that they have the opportunity to shine!

I’ve attached a picture taken of my family’s recent trip to the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center. This is a scale model of the space shuttle, the booster rockets and the transport – all made out of KINEX! The three fellows responsible for this are shown - Wesley Smalls, Jared Bedwell and Emil Mottola. The shuttle has working cargo doors, a flexible robot arm and the transport pad even rolls! This was an added bonus to seeing real rockets and probably amazed us even more. Needless to say, we had a great time in the Huntsville area!

(Kentucky Association of School Administrators Summer Institute – Louisville, Kentucky) – July 14, 2011 - A special press conference was held at the annual Kentucky Association of School Administrators’ Summer Institute at the Galt House in Louisville today to announce that Barren County Schools has chosen to partner with the Pearson Virtual Learning powered by Florida Virtual School program for virtual services to be utilized by the Barren Academy of Virtual and Expanded Learning (BAVEL).

Bo Matthews, the current Director of Pupil Personnel who will become the district’s new superintendent, and Phyllis Lentz, the Virtual Learning Manager of the Southeast Area for Pearson Virtual, made the announcement. Andy Ross, the General Manager for Global Services of Florida Virtual School, who participated in the meetings leading to the partnership agreement, was out of the country and unable to attend.

“Because of our continued growth and need to expand our services, such as summer school classes and higher levels of advanced math, science and technology classes, we entered into discussions with Ms. Lentz and Mr. Ross to establish this phenomenal partnership,” said Bo Matthews, the current director of pupil personnel and incoming superintendent for Barren County Schools.

“With this partnership, BAVEL will be using Pearson Virtual Learning because of the engaging, rigorous content and the very proactive teaching model that combine to make for student success,” said Matthews. “Florida Virtual School has exceptional teachers who know their content, care deeply for the students they serve, and are very responsive to individual student needs.”

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with the students of Kentucky through BAVEL. Our course catalog offers over 100 course titles that will provide expanded options for students,” stated Lentz. “Students are demanding more options and we know that online courses can provide these options through a 24/7 educational opportunity. We have every confidence that Kentucky’s public school students will find the resources they need through BAVEL.”

At this year’s Monroe Co. Watermelon Festival there was a new activity to enjoy. The newly founded Monroe Co 4H Dog Club put together a dog show. The activity was a fundraiser for the club & was a huge success. Even though the day was extremely hot, those who came out to participate & just to watch have said it was great family entertainment.

Photo # 1 – Members of the Dog Club at the club’s booth. They were in charge of selling chances on the wonderful dog gift basket, getting people registered early for the show & getting votes dropped in the jars so that we could select a most photogenic dog for the show.

The Pickerel Frog kept jumping in front of the mower until my husband caught him and put him in the bucket, which is why grass clipping are showing on his back. Toads and frogs are very beneficial to our gardens.

Teens will RYOT on Sunday, Oct. 9

Praise and prayers went up for the bands, speaker, volunteers, but mostly for the teens who will attend the RYOT on October 9 on the Happy Valley School lawn. Organizers met Sunday night to pray for the event which aims at reaching youth on time for Jesus Christ. “Our job as Christians is to prove to teens that there are people in our community who genuinely love them,” said Nathan Peters, youth worker at Glasgow First Assembly of God Church.

“God has a plan for us and He is equipping us to do His work,” added Sam Tollison, pastor of Glasgow First Assembly of God Church and coordinator of this year’s RYOT. “It’s like the loaves and fishes – our finances are completely covered, thanks to donations from businesses and fundraisers. Who makes $1,000 on a yard sale? RYOT did! God is showing Himself strong.”

Churches across Barren County sponsor the RYOT, and follow up with the kids who attend. Brandon Petty, lead pastor of Generation Church in Portland, Tenn., is the featured speaker. Bands include Danya, God’s Gift, Kryst Like, and G.I. Food, games, give-aways – all free. Finding the true love of Jesus Christ – priceless. For more information on RYOT, call Pastor Sam Tollison at 270-834-6578. Visit our Facebook page at!/pages/Youth-RYOT/142510102275.

Accompanying student to the landfill was CSM Phillip Gearlds who is one of the Green Team sponsors this year. “Land field space is very limited within our community. We need to recycle and use our space wisely”, says CSM Gearlds. Green Team members will be working on projects this school year that encourages reducing, reusing, and recycling as a means to protect our environment and “Give Earth a Hand”.

BCHS Lauches College Application Week

Barren County High School had 125 seniors, from the “GEAR UP Class of 2012,” make 263 college applications in one day. Barren County High was chosen as one of 13 Kentucky High Schools across the state to launch “College Application Week.” Sponsored by KHEAA, Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, the week was an effort to assist all students with their college applications so that the process itself would not prevent any student from pursing a continuing education.

Several school wide activities, with participation from the school faculty and staff, helped to make the “College Application Week” a success. Teachers and staff were encouraged to decorate their door to promote the college of their choice. Teachers and staff were also asked to share their own personal story concerning their college application and lessons they learned about attending college. College shirt day was a fun day for students and staff to wear a favorite college shirt. On application day 11 colleges and universities, from across the state, participated in a college fair in the school library. Over 200 seniors and a few parents attended the fair, making some very important contacts with colleges of interest. In addition to the 263 applications made during the fair, some students left with several applications to be filled out at home and mailed in at a later date.

According to Magnet School counselor, Nicole Jones, “It is a wonderful opportunity for students to ask their college admissions' counselors questions without having to schedule an on-campus visit”.

Senior Counselor, Angie Frazier agreed and had this comment, “College Application Day was a great opportunity for our students. Many of our students are the first in their family to go to college and beginning the application process can be very intimidating. The admission counselors were on hand to answer questions and assist students with the application process. I am overwhelmed at the number of students who came in to apply. I am very excited with our turn out and looking forward to planning for next year!”

Barren County High’s GEAR UP Program coordinator, Kathy Lowe was pleased to see so many of her students in attendance. “After 5 and a half years of working toward the goal of College Readiness and Preparedness, it was very exciting to see them actually applying to colleges and universities. The seniors were a little nervous, apprehensive, and of course excited that the day is finally here and we are indeed ready for that next step.”

Mammoth Cave is one of Kentucky’s Greenest Fleets

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK – December 12, 2011) On December 7, the Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition named Mammoth Cave National Park one of the commonwealth’s greenest vehicle fleets and a pioneer in alternative fuels.

Mammoth Cave received one of twelve Pioneer Fleets of the Green Fleets of the Bluegrass Program awards at the Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition winter meeting at Bernheim Forest. Each “pioneer” is working to improve the environmental performance of their vehicle fleets by reducing petroleum fuel use.

Mammoth Cave National Park is a Pioneer Member of the Green Fleets of the Bluegrass program. Mammoth Cave is the first national park in the country to utilize 100 percent alternative fuels and advanced technologies in their fleet. Biodiesel is used with all heavy duty equipment, including the Green River ferry boats. Low speed electric vehicles are utilized by campground staff, and all cave tour buses use propane. More than 90 percent of the vehicles used by Mammoth Cave run on either E10 or E85. The park partners with concessionaire Forever Resorts to enable both park and hotel vehicles to share the park's refueling station. Mammoth Cave is a member of the Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition.

School Administrators Travel to China

Bill Walter sent us this photo and writes:

(Glasgow, Kentucky) December 15, 2011 – There were literally thousands of bicyclists heading in all directions and dozens of cranes dotting the skylines as if to signal the country’s dramatic growth and prosperity. That was the first introduction to Chinese culture for a large contingent of U.S. school officials upon their arrival in Beijing, China last month.

Various sources report that someone in Kentucky traveling to China will cover over 7,000 miles and spend approximately 14 hours on an airplane in the process. With that piece of trivia planted firmly in the back of your mind, what would motivate someone from Kentucky to endure such a long journey? Well, if you spoke with Bo Matthews or Benny Lile, both administrators for the Barren County School District, located in, yes, you’ve got it –Kentucky, they would tell you they did it for the future of their district’s students.

“This was an opportunity of a lifetime,” said Matthews, who serves as the district’s superintendent. “Had it not been for Western Kentucky University’s Confucius Institute and The College Board, we never would have been able to go. This trip has been extremely beneficial to all of us as public school administrators from the United States because we will use what we’ve learned to benefit our students by strengthening their academic experience in school.”

“Yes, this was extremely beneficial to us professionally and very rewarding, personally,” said Lile, the district’s instructional supervisor and director over technology. “We were able to visit a large number of schools and observe teaching and learning. All of us have read the research and various journals and books regarding the Chinese approach to learning, but seeing it first-hand really makes it more meaningful and valuable to us as educators.”

Beyond cultural enrichment, the trip will also provide incentives and strategies for educators to return to the United States better able to support the growth of Chinese language and culture programs in their own districts. Chinese is the national language of the more than 1.3 billion inhabitants of China and millions more ethnic Chinese around the world.

(in the photo) - A large contingent of American public school administrators traveled to China recently to observe that country’s schools and experience its culture . Benny Lile (left), and Bo Matthews (far right), director of instruction and superintendent of schools, respectively, took a moment to pose for a photo with one of the students they met during their visit.

(MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK – December 16, 2011) Mammoth Cave’s award winning environmental education program received further accolades in November when its leader, Cheryl Messenger, received the regional Freeman Tilden award, recognizing Messenger as the best interpreter in the Southeast Region of the National Park Service (NPS).

“I am not bragging when I say that Mammoth Cave’s environmental education program is second to none,” said Superintendent Patrick Reed. “Past honors seem to fuel Cheryl and her staff on to greater endeavors and deeper partnerships that bring unparalleled opportunities to teachers and students in south central Kentucky.”

The Freeman Tilden Award is an annual award recognizing outstanding public contributions in interpretation and visitor services by a NPS employee. Freeman Tilden, who wrote The National Parks, What They Mean to You and Me and Interpreting Our Heritage, greatly influenced the development of NPS interpretation and education programs.

By partnering with Western Kentucky University Education Department (WKU), Messenger received a National Park Foundation grant to initiate the largest inquiry-based outdoor learning training for education majors in the country. Focusing on students who are about to become teachers, it demonstrates the advantages of using outdoor settings and inquiry-based learning techniques to teach critical thinking skills in both science and social science subjects. Since the grant began two years ago, 400 WKU students have been immersed in the overnight, in-park learning experience.

“Very few teacher-education programs provide outdoor learning as part of their curriculum requirements for graduation,” said Reed. “This grant combines Western Kentucky University's goal to produce innovative and well trained teachers, with the park’s goal to connect people to the value and significance of Mammoth Cave through learning experiences.”

“Inquiry-based learning produces a sense of discovery as students seek answers to their own questions and interests,” explained Mike Adams, chief of interpretation at Mammoth Cave, who nominated Messenger for the award. "The process creates a powerful personal and intellectual connection to the park. We have been told by students that this was the most useful courses in their college career. Many students who were hesitant to participate have left enthused, anxious to bring their own classes to the park or use inquiry-based learning in other settings.”

Messenger and her staff also work with more than 30,000 K-12 students each year, both in the schools and all around the park.

Past honors received by Messenger and her staff include:
• Kentucky Association for Environmental Education 2011 state award winner for Excellence in Environmental Education;
• 2010 commendation from NPS Southeast Regional Director David Vela for "…outstanding work in EE with WKU, the NPS Geoscience Teachers-in-the-Park program, and in grant partnership efforts with the National Park Foundation";
• By Governor appointment, Messenger serves on the Kentucky Environmental Education Council (2006-present);
• With WKU, the Mammoth Cave environmental education program was awarded a $100,000 National Park Foundation grant in 2009;
• Messenger served on the "Master Plan for Environmental Education in Kentucky" task force in 2009;
• Messenger graduated from the inaugural class for "Kentucky State Environmental Education Non-Formal Certification" program in 2004;
• Mammoth Cave’s environmental education program is a 21st Century Learning Center partner with Barren County Schools and Caverna Independent Schools.

For the past several years various small road-side cedar trees in the stretch of Highway 31-W just north of Park City have mysteriously been trimmed out for Christmas. This year's version is only about two feet tall and can barely support the decorations. It is located on the south side of the road across from the Southern States feed mill.

This is a photo I ran across of Gen. Russell E. Dougherty, probably taken in Arizona. The general was born in Glasgow and grew up around St. Mary's Court. He attended WKU and U of L, becoming an attorney. He also served as commander in chief of the Air Force's Strategic Air Command. A biography of his many outstanding accomplishments is available here (note the Santa on the wall behind him).
