I just wanted to share this story with all our horse lovers. I was at Rowletts, Kentucky, this past weekend watching the horse events and I must say it was a lot of fun. They had several events for all ages. The picture I have attached is Ruben Yoder warming up one of the horses. Ruben won first place in pole riding. Ruben's dream is to ride in many events and show horses. Good luck, Ruben.

Vickie Carson sent us this photo and writes:
Ranger David Alexander, an Edmonson County native, is a member of the National Park Service National Honor Guard Team, a precision drill team capable of rendering formal honors long-established in military, fire, and police organizations. The Honor Guard is made up of ten law enforcement rangers from different NPS areas across the country.

"We're proud to have David on the team, representing Mammoth Cave," said Superintendent Bruce Powell. "The Honor Guard was established out of reverence for park rangers who have died in the line of duty. The Guard provides ceremonial flag services for funerals, dedications and memorials." To date, Alexander has performed his duties at a memorial ceremony at the Interior Building in Washington D.C., the dedication of the Natchez Trace Parkway, and in National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Week.

Don Usher, the superintendent of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia, selects, trains and supervises the Honor Guard. "Membership in the Honor Guard entails a commitment to excellence involving practice, drill, readiness to travel on short notice, personal grooming and maintenance of physical fitness," said Usher. "In addition to learning and becoming proficient in the various drills and maneuvers required, Guard members must be able to stand at attention for long time periods in high heat, control wind-blown flags, endure all types of adverse weather conditions, and maintain composure under extremely emotional and stressful conditions."

This is my good friend, Specialist Hammer, who is currently serving in Iraq. He sent me this picture and this passage that he wrote. I thought I would share it with everyone...

I was that which others did not want to be. I went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those that gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of loneliness. Should I fail, I have seen the face of terror. Felt the sting of cold fear, and enjoyed the sweet taste of love, I cried, prayed, and hoped. But most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten. At least some days, I will always be able to say I was and will always be proud of what I was.      PFC HAMMER

Dear Anderson,
My name is Yezi. I am a Chinese. Several months ago, I went to Glasgow and stayed there for 10 weeks' training by one of our best customer. That is a very wonderful time for me.

The blue sky, clean water, green grass, fresh air... impressed me so much. Also, the amazing caves! Well, the most impressing thing to me is the warm-hearted and simplehearted Kentucky people there. In the first several weeks there, once I drove the car alone on the highway and got lost in the late evening. A very kind man helped me and led me to the correct way. I don't know his name, but I remember his kind eyes forever.

.......There are so many good memories there. Also I learnt a lot from my US customer, efficient and creative.

I returned to China in the end of May. Recently, I often think of Glasgow. I miss it so much. I tried to get some more information of Glasgow from It is a good window of Glasgow.

Attached is a picture of mine taken in Glasgow in April. You need not publish it to the Website. I am writing this email to you just to express my impression of Glasgow. I love Glasgow.

Jeff Wagner sent us this photo and writes:
Greetings, Bill,
It's been awhile since I have spoken with you. I hope all is well. I know a few of the Glasgow folks have enjoyed some of my waterfalls around the Kentucky area. So I thought I would send one from North Carolina, where I now reside.

This is High Shoals Falls in South Mountain State Park of North Carolina. It has a total height of about 75 feet which includes about 20 feet that disappears behind the rock on the right. The hike was about 1.5 miles, mostly uphill, but well worth the trip. This is one of about 120 waterfalls in North Carolina. Most of the are in the Blue Ridge Mountains. For those who are fans of waterfalls, the Smoky Mountains around Gatlinburg, has quite a few. I know this is a common vacation area for many in Glasgow.

I would like to thank everyone who has visited my Website and has given their kind words. I have added a few more North Carolina water falls for those who are interested.

Take care,
Jeff Wagner -

Britton is a member of a Glasgow Little League Baseball 10-years-old team that was playing in a 9 and 10-years-old tournament in Edmonton over the weekend. In this particular game, they were playing against a Monroe Co. 10-years-old team.

Don't miss Glasgow, Scotland's premier Celtic band Thursday, Sept. 29, 7:00pm at the Plaza Theatre! Call 651-3141 or 651-3161 for ticket information. All proceeds benefit the Glasgow Highland Games.

The acoustical richness of Bluegrass and the exciting driving rhythm of Celtic music make this a concert not to be missed! Fiddles, flutes, mandolins, guitars, pipes, percussion and more will bring the Plaza Theatre alive with the mystical power of Celtic music. Tickets available at 651-3141, 651-3161 or at the door.

They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable. As the Winnipeg Free Press noted,

"The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power an entire city for a year on the strength of last night's concert alone. The music may be old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."

Dear WebMeister,
The passing of Ruby Perkins Scott of Horse Cave earlier this month has prompted me to share with you one of my favorite photos. It is a copy of an original from the estate of Dr. Christeen Perkins Snavely. Christeen, a very dear friend, died November 16, 1996, at the age of 78.

On the back of the photo, it reads: "Ruby Perkins, age 7 years? Christeen Perkins, age 22 months? singing 'When the Savior Found Me' ? 1920."

It would be a sign for things to come for Christeen, who later would become a member of the Glasgow Musicale Club, serving two terms as President. She was also a board member and past president of the Ky. Federation of Music Clubs and was responsible for the state federation to support the Stephen Foster Music Camp at Eastern Kentucky University.

I can only believe that these two sisters are making wonderful music again, which brings a joyous smile to my face.

Thanks for allowing me to share.

Acting Superintendent Bruce Powell acknowledged volunteers and workers who cleared the path and then constructed the trail. Powell also presented Woody Gardner, President of National Park Concessions, Inc., and board members Ozzie Adwell and Clyde Anderson, with a letter from NPS Director Fran Mainella. National Park Concessions, Inc. donated $608,000 toward construction of the trail.

Park City Mayor David Lyons spoke to the crowd about Park City's adjacent bike trail that will one day connect to the park trail, and the historical connection between Bell's Tavern and the Mammoth Cave Railroad. Local historian Normal Warnell revealed some of his research into the Mammoth Cave Railroad -- that it was always on time, it was often more reliable than traveling by road, and pranksters were known to soap the rails -- which will be portrayed in wayside exhibits along the trail.

Mammoth Cave National Park Donates Computers to Park City School
On October 14, 2005, Sarah Hiser, school technology coordinator at Park City Elementary, traveled up the hill into the park to pick up some surplus government property from Mammoth Cave – five laptops and 13 computers. The Website,, is maintained by the General Services Administration, the property authority of the federal government. Schools, like Park City, register their needs on the site, then federal agencies, like Mammoth Cave, offer to donate excess computer equipment that the school needs. If the school accepts the offer, the transfer of property is handled online with very little bureaucratic paperwork. Park City received five Pentium III laptops and 11 Pentium III CPUs/two Pentium II CPUs, each with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
"We are honored and very excited to receive these computers," said Hiser. "We have been in need of extra computers for quite some time, but could not find the funding. We plan to use some of the computers to establish a mini-computer lab in our school. The other computers will be distributed among the classrooms so that they can be available for students to use for classroom assignments."
Federal agencies can transfer excess computer equipment to schools and educational non-profit organizations by the authority of Executive Order 12999, Educational Technology: Ensuring Opportunity for All Children in the Next Century. Anyone interested should register on the site.

With the fire season kicked off, may all the children of this community only have positive experiences with our city and county fire vehicles. Too often, the tragedy of residential fires will bring about no reason for the kids to smile.

Hats off to all local firefighters! They remain steadfast in their mission to help keep this community safe. Their dedication is greatly appreciated.

May all city and county fire departments experience a very slow fire season…

Volunteers cleaned a roadside dump in Horse Cave. It was a very productive day; the two dumpsters provided by Hart County Solid Waste were filled within four hours. Some of the large items removed included three coaches, a stove, a washer, and a dryer (the picture on the left shows the washer being pushed up the hill). Additionally, around three dozen tires were removed from the area. A special thanks to Sydney Bunnell for donating his time and a backhoe for the cleanup.

Hey, Bill,
My oldest son, Eric, is graduating from Western Kentucky University this weekend with a degree in Business. We hate to show how he gets with all of his excitement, but this was the only picture we got the whole night where his eyes weren't crossed... After he finally got down from jumping on the couch, he just wouldn't stop drinking those darn Capri-Suns. The crown on his head was from my youngest daughter's 5th birthday (Wed.), which he insisted on wearing and yelling "I feel just like a little girl again!" Hope we get this mess cleaned up... :)

Thanks again,
Ricky Mudd

Christmas Photos from the Glasgow Square

Hello Glasgow'ians! Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is enjoying the new lights on the square this winter! The city has done a wonderful job decorating our square and I am very proud of Glasgow's class approach towards doing so! Here are a couple of photos...

(TOP) Here is a photo of the square standing on East Main. I tried a new effect with the camera and, although it didn't come out as I had hoped, it still shows the beautiful lights!
(BOTTOM) Here is a photo of one of the many Santa's displayed in the windows of offices on the square. I highly recommend walking around the square at night to view all of the wonderful displays. A lot of time go into these and they turned out beautiful!

For all the photos from the square that night, please visit my photo blog at! Merry Christmas, everyone!

Fun on the Ky. Railway Museum's Train!
Picture Featured:    December 22, 2005 Fun on the Ky. Railway Museum
The ol' WebMeister himself took these photos...
These were taken last Friday, Dec. 16, 2005 at New Haven, Ky., just on the other side of Hodgenville. The Ky. Railway Museum is much more than a museum. There is also a train that makes a 22-mile trip (they carry about 40,000 passengers a year!). There are several themes they follow, including the train being robbed by crooks on horseback, a murder mystery, a haunted train around Halloween and a day out with Thomas. All these things are accomplished with only four paid employees - the rest are volunteers who help out because of their love of people - and trains!

In the photos above is Senior Conductor and Chairnan of the Board, Frank Bryan. A super nice fellow, he came around, punched our tickets and even read our copy of "The Polar Express" to us during the trip (this was just before our visit from Santa)! On the left in the photo are Kelly and Sam, the children of Bill and Rita Anderson. On the right are Amanda and Eric, the children of Shawn and Debbie Perkins (Debbie is Bill's sister). Check out the museum below. "All Aboard!"

By the way, just so he doesn't feel left out, that's Monkey in the lower right. He's Sam's best pal.

Bill, I thought you might use one of these pictures for the Website. This shows the Barren County High School Chorus performing at the South Central Kentucky Cultural Center for the Glasgow Barren County Retired Teacher's Christmas party. Santa Claus in the foreground seems to be enjoying it, too. He's the Santa that used to be in the window at Bernard's Department Store.

This woman is a Native of Lappland, just north of the Artic Circle in Finland. This was "Be Nice to a Reindeer Week" and I wanted to do my part. HaHa. I think this was Blitzen.

Thanks for the Care Packages!
Picture Featured:    December 26, 2005 Thanks for the Care Packages!
Vickie Carson sent us this photo and writes:
Last week, Captain Jon Messenger stopped by the Mammoth Cave administrative offices to thank park staff for "care packages" sent to him while he was stationed in Iraq. Pictured are Mary Conner, park administrative officer, Captain Messenger, and Peggy Poynter, administrative clerk. Conner and Poynter organized the effort to send boxes full of food and personal items to relatives of park staff in the armed forces. Messenger is the son of Ted and Cheryl Messenger of Cave City; both work at Mammoth Cave. Captain Messenger said the boxes were very much appreciated, but what he liked best were the handwritten notes that Conner always enclosed.

Several people have asked me to submit this photo that I took, which we used on our Christmas cards this year. The card read, "In the eyes of children, we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts, we find its meaning." Merry Christmas!
