Aviation history questions from the news of the day

Can you answer this?

By Ed Waggener

We learned from the Bardstown Kentucky Standard and the Kentucky Press Association that Nelson County is remembering its first female pilot, who died this past week? If raises the question: Who was the first female in Adair County? In Casey? In Cumberland? In Green? In Metcalfe? In Russell County? In Taylor?

And, the Question? Which of the above counties have two successor local School District Superintendents, one a man the other a woman, who are licensed pilots? The answer to that one might be one for the 'World Record Book of Guinesses' - The late, great Mayor Coy Downey's book of superlatives.

Father's Day Story collection from the past - from 8 years ago

Maybe this collection, put together eight years ago, will grow today. Maybe you will write that one story you always wanted to write - today - or pull out that draft which is awaiting some other day, and make this the day you'll remember that one day in the near future may be too late. Maybe I'll write the story of "Daddy's Mountain," which Linda never forgets to remind me I haven't done.

Maybe, today, she record the story which most illustrates the life of her father, the late Earl Reid Marcum, and share it today.

In lieu of any of that happening, we're posting this list of stories about father's last published here, eight year's ago, on Father's Day, June 21, 2009:

By J.D. Gee

In the June 18th edition, grocer J.D. Harper touted spacious free parking for shoppers at his Drive-In Market. He had opened the establishment in April 1950 "in the building which formerly housed the Skating Rink, on 206, just off Campbellsville Street." This was strictly an up-to-date place to shop: it was self-service, "with a complete line of frozen foods, produce, meats, groceries, and an open display of ice cream," not to mention a dietetic section for those with special needs.
