Reader Queries

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Among those letters we often find queries, ranging from requests for words to songs and poems to trying to locate former classmates and military buddies of long ago.


Here are a few queries from April 2005

Wants Words To Songs
Dear Editor:
There are three songs/poems I'd like to obtain the words for. The first goes "Forgive me Lord and try me one more time."
The other two I learned in grade school. One is called September and starts out, "The goldenrod is yellow." The other song is about the wind and a few of the words are "when the wind is from the west, the trees and flowers grow the best."
If anyone can send me the words or music for any of the requests, I would appreciate it very much.
It is wonderful the way the readers of The Kentucky Explorer seem to want to help others.

Searching For Old
School Friend

Dear Editor:
I would like to find an old friend who I attended school with. We lived at Lookout, Kentucky, in the 1940s. Her name is Alene Coleman.
I would appreciate any information.
