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 September 2003 issue:



Looking For Former Students
Of Mount Eagle Grade School

Dear Editor:
I am looking for any readers who went to Mount Eagle Grade School from the years of 1945 through the early 1950s. The school was located in Cresmont, better known as Farmer's Ridge on Route 587 in Lee County, Kentucky. I would love to talk to anyone who attended school there. The teachers at that time were Carol Marcum and Gentry Farmer. The school was a one-room structure and has since been converted into a home. If anyone has pictures of the old school that they would share, I would gladly pay for the postage and any cost for prints. Also I am looking for anyone who has any plum granny seeds to share.

Poke Salad Seeds
And Winter Onions

Dear Editor:
I would like some poke salad seeds and winter onions. Winter onions are multiplying. I use to dig them up, even when the ground was covered with snow, and have them to eat along with my beans. Here in Texas poke salad is very hard to come by. Since I have a large yard I can grow my own.
I will have some cuttings from a Pink Confederate rose bush this fall, if anyone is interested. I only ask for the cost of postage.
