Letters To The Editor

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Whenever possible, we try to publish as many of them as possible in the 12 pages we have set aside for "Letters to the Editor."


Here are actual letters from our October 2002 issue:

Photograph Identified

Dear Editor:

In The Kentucky Explorer magazine I received dated July/August 2002, on page 101 was a picture of Cool Springs School, Ohio County, Kentucky, class of 1919-20. This photo was submitted by Margie Coffey.

I was born and reared at Cool Springs, Ohio County, Kentucky. (1919-20 was before my time).

The school burned to the ground New Year's Eve 2002. This is probably the same school photo that Margie Coffey submitted. The school was near Cool Springs Baptist Church, located on a road I call Pewtiss Road. I lived just below this school. This school was converted into a living house, and some of my family (Burris) was living in the schoolhouse when it burned. Some of the Burris family members were pictured in the photograph.

Thanks For I Remember


Dear Editor:

I want to sincerely thank you for printing my story in the I Remember section of your magazine in the April 2002 edition.
I have heard from many friends and relatives and made lots of new friends from Eastern Kentucky to New Orleans, Louisiana.

Reader Proud Of Heritage

Dear Editor:

I am writing to tell you how much I enjoy The Kentucky Explorer, and how proud I am of the state of Kentucky. I was born at Parkers Lake, Kentucky, in McCreary County, and I'm very proud of my heritage.

I am so glad there is someone like you putting all the time into something as nice as this magazine. I can't wait to read all the letters from my fellow Kentuckians when I receive my copy each month.

Ms. Mary Cooper
