Glasgow Daily Times
There are so many stories and bits of information published in the Glasgow Daily Times on a weekly basis, that it might be easy to miss some of them. That being the case, I am reminding you, my seven faithful readers, what you may have missed.
Let’s recap by date.
On May 25, we had a story about Earl Kinslow, who is a World War II veteran. Earl served in the medical corps and treated patients in Cardiff, Wales, including some who had been injured during D-Day. The Cardiff fact I found interesting because I spent nine months in college in a town down the road from Cardiff. Amanda Loviza Vickery wrote the story.
In that same newspaper were stories about the 2013 Glasgow High graduates by Shelley Smith; a story about local emergency personnel training for possible emergency scenarios dealing with citizens who may have limitations and had become lost by Melinda J. Overstreet; there was a story by Ronnie Ellis, a former Daily Times reporter and photographer, on Rand Paul’s political future; a story by Gina Kinslow about a momma dog who found her pups; also by Overstreet was a story about the Glasgow Fire Department’s awards ceremony; Kinslow had a story about Tompkinsville’s plan to upgrade gas lines; there were some briefs about upcoming DAV and Cave City meetings, planned work on Interstate 65 at Horse Cave; Sports Editor Scott Wilson had a story about the upcoming Dr. C.G. Follis Men’s Golf Championship that begins today; a photo and cutline regarding some successful youth martial arts athletes; a whole page dedicated to NASCAR; livestock reports; a column by Gary Tilghman on fescue pastures; a column by Kristin Goodin about sweet potatoes; a photo of kids learning how to plant a garden, and more.
In Tuesday’s newspaper, there were photos and a story by Overstreet from the annual Memorial Day service at Glasgow Municipal Cemetery; there was a follow up to the efforts to form a “new” T.J. Samson Community Hospital board by Loviza Vickery; a story about unemployment rates by Smith; information about the Metcalfe County Relay for Life by Kinslow; a special article about Park City’s annual festival; Barren County grand jury indictments were published along with a couple of briefs about other arrests; a column by Eugene Martin about his red pickup; a Kiwanis article by Holly Travis about Jennifer Moonsong and the Plaza Theatre; and more.
With only two days covered, and without everything listed that was published, I have run out of space in this column to tell you what you might have missed.
