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 June 2006
Formerly Of First Creek
In Perry County
A photo of the First Creek High School Basketball Team of 1941 of Perry County was published in the March 2006 issue of The Kentucky Explorer.
I was a cheerleader at First Creek High School for three years, graduating in 1940. I attended grade school at Blue Diamond in Perry County.
I would like to hear from any reader who knows the history of Blue Diamond at First Creek or remembers the George and Isadore Childers family. I have relatives who lived in many towns in Kentucky.
Keep up the good work with the magazine.

Words To Song Request
I enjoy The Kentucky Explorer and have found its readers to be extremely helpful.
My request is for the words to a country song that was popular most likely in the late 1940s to early 1950s. I believe the title may have been "Life Gets Tedious." I can't recall who sang the song, but I think of some of the words from time to time and smile.

Car Is 1936 Packard
My husband thinks the car shown in the photo on page 89 of the February 2006 issue of The Kentucky Explorer is a 1936 Packard 120 Sedan. The photo was submitted by George H. Voyles asking for the year and make of the car.

I am looking for the songbook New Songs of Inspiration, Volume 4. It was copyrighted between 1958-1963.
