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 March 2003 issue:
Wants Greasy Bean Seeds
We enjoy The Kentucky Explorer and are always looking forward to the next issue. Our relatives are the Wilsons/Wilkersons from Russell County. Even though we don't see much written from that area, the other articles and pictures are great. We also enjoy reading about the McRoberts family.
Another interest is reading about the greasy bean seeds. We have searched all the seed catalogs and have been unable to find the seeds. If anyone has a few to share, we would be happy to pay the postage.

Seeking Info. On Kenneth Hayes
I am seeking information on a Kenneth Hayes. He was working in Middletown, Ohio, in 1968. He was then 22 years old. He was from Morehead, Kentucky, and was married to Rita. He had an older brother named Robert, who lived at Red Line, Ohio.
If anyone has any information regarding Kenneth Hayes, please let me know.

Attention, Kirksville Grads
The old Kirksville School has now become the Kirksville Community Center. The center is owned and operated by a group of citizens in the Kirksville area, as a nonprofit organization. We're very interested in locating any class pictures before 1945, or any type of memorabilia that may be connected to the old school.
We're in the process of establishing a museum-type area in the school filled with anything related to the old school. If you have any such items, or know of any items, please get in touch with us.
