Lindsey Wilson celebrates its Methodist Heritage

By Venus Popplewell

The Lindsey Wilson College community celebrated its connection to The United Methodist Church on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, during the annual Church College Celebration Day.

The college - which is affiliated with the Kentucky Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church - held Church Celebration Day in V.P. Henry Auditorium. Church College Celebration Day was started more than 20 years ago by then-LWC Provost and Dean of the Faculty Walter S. Reuling as an expression of the college's relationship with The United Methodist Church, which dates to LWC's founding in 1903.

The ceremony consisted of songs of worship, scripture readings, a college affirmation by Instructor of Religion and LWC Chaplain Troy Elmore, a church affirmation by LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., and a message by Rev. Dr. Paul Fryman who served the United Methodist Church for nearly 40 years as a pastor and then later as the district superintendent.

Letter: Sign may not be missing after all

Jason Rector writes:
Constable may have solved your mystery? In regards to this sign, I'm pretty sure it's not missing, maybe it's just got turned around to the backside over the years? I looked out the Courthouse doors while in the office late yesterday evening looking toward Jamestown hill and it appears the exact wording from the picture appears on the backside of one of the historical signs. --Jason

Letter: Calling Mike Watson, photo ID needed

Betty Ann Wells writes:
Mike Watson, I have a large photo of someone who was unidentified. I believe he was one of the Field family. He has short, dark hair, a full mustache, a bushy, but trimed, beard, and "bags" under his eyes, a dark suit, vest buttoned to the top. I wonder if you could identify him from a snapshot.

I have never found a photo of Elijah Creel Field, son of the John Field who owned the Field house. Elijah was a physician who gave aid and comfort to soldiers from both sides of the Civil War, and was assassinated shortly after the War by one or more citizens of Adair county for doing so. I have never found an exact date of that death. I am hoping that the photo I own is his. All the best! --Betty
Betty, thanks for writing. We'll let Mike know about your letter, and post the photo with this article in hopes that an ID is possible. --Pen

Music Folklife Program at WKU Receives NEA Grant

We're a rich region in famous music stars. Bowling Green has served as home to Ernest Hogan ("the Father of Ragtime"), The Hilltoppers, Sam Bush (the Father of "Newgrass"), 90s hip hop group Nappy Roots, and recent popular groups such as Cage the Elephant.

From Western KY University Communications

The Kentucky Folklife Program, housed in the Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology at Western Kentucky University, has received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to support a traveling exhibit and associated programming centered on the musical heritage and culture of south central Kentucky.

Since 1989, the mission of the Kentucky Folklife Program has been to document, present and conserve the traditional arts and cultural heritage of the Commonwealth. The project will showcase and contextualize the region's rich musical landscape, from important historical and contemporary genres and key musicians to the venues and community groups that have fostered the music scene. This exhibit, which will be hosted at various public venues around south central Kentucky, will encourage visitors of all ages to reflect on the region's unique musical identity and how musical traditions are intertwined with a deep sense of place.
