Mike Landrum sent us this photo and writes:
Hi, Bill,
My son, Ryan Landrum, recently completed his freshman season as a baseball pitcher at WKU and he, along with another freshman pitcher, Kenny Griffin, are playing in a summer baseball league and staying in Herndon, Virginia. It's about an hour drive to Baltimore, Maryland, where a lot of their games are played and about a 25 minute drive to Washington, D.C., where this picture was taken on an off day. They were having some kind of function on the front lawn of the White House and Ryan had to stay behind the rope you see in the foreground of the picture. He and Kenny also saw the Washington Monument, the Holocaust Museum, the Smithsonian and the Capitol building. He said it was the most fun day they had so far there and they planned to go back again to see the Lincoln Memorial and some other sites.

Picture Featured:    July 14, 2004 A busy night (unfortunately)...
The WebMeister (Bill Anderson) took these photos on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. A series of very violent storms rolled through Barren County, disrupting local services and causing widespread damage (The Weather Channel was reporting that Jefferson County, Kentucky, had the most power lines down overnight since 1974!). The EPB Team (some of the office folks are shown in the photos above) worked through the night, as did other utilities and agencies serving our community. The EPB's line crews braved the elements (and trees ready to fall, poles snapped & hanging, high voltage wires) to restore service for their customers, as did other utilities and city and county agencies. Other people in the various fire departments, law enforcement, ambulance services and the 911 Center were busy through the night as well.

The Barren County High School Marching Band has, once again, made school history! On Saturday, Sept. 11, the Trojan Marching Band traveled to Russell Springs to compete at the 2004 Lake Cumberland Marching Invitational. Although the BCHS band was returning as the 2003 "Reserve Grand Champion," this year’s competition looked to be much tougher. The list of contenders included 2 AAA bands larger than Barren County, as well as 2 Finalists from previous KMEA Marching Band Championships. Directors Dr. Kip Crowder, Monica Crowder, Andrew Porter, Zack Hooten along with staff member Brian Roberson are pleased to report that Barren County again achieved the honor of "Reserve Grand Champion" by posting the second highest score for the day (81.67) out of nine bands. More importantly, the membership of the BCHS band received a distinguished rating (minimum score of 80.0) in both prelims and finals, automatically qualifying the school to compete for a state title in class AA. This is the first time in Barren County’s competitive marching career that the band has earned a distinguished rating at their first contest of the year! Congratulations to all the participating members on a job well done and best of luck during the 2004 marching season!

After the cleanup, volunteers had the opportunity to go caving at a cave on the property. While in the cave, I was able to capture a few photos of the bats.

On October 28, I went to Washington, DC and saw the World War II Memorial. This memorial was begun in September, 2001 and dedicated on May 29, 2004. It was placed between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Anyone visiting Washington should make this one of their stops. It is amazing!

There is a World War II Registry at www.wwiimemorial.com. It is a database of names of Americans in the war effort and tells more about the memorial project. I have already submitted the names of my father, Robert, and his three brothers, Paul, Earl and James, who served in the United States Army. These four brothers were stationed in four different countries.

There is a quote by President Harry S. Truman inscribed at the memorial that reads "Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices." I think that says it all.

This photograph of Krissie and me was made on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004, on a visit to Hoover Dam. The dam is between Nevada and Arizona and was completed in 1936. A photograph can’t do justice to the view from the top. The construction work in the background is the result of a new bridge being built to route all traffic off the top of the dam for security reasons. Krissie was attending a conference in Las Vegas and had the afternoon off for sightseeing. Las Vegas is an interesting place to visit, but it was great to come back home.
