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 May 2008
Relates To Articles
I really enjoy The Kentucky Explorer. I can relate to so many
of the articles, even though I am a little younger than some
of the writers. I am 54 years old and was reared on a farm. I
was the oldest girl with no brothers.
I would like to see articles in the magazine about Eubank, Pulaski
I have several relatives that moved to Ohio years ago to work.
I was telling them about the magazine, and they have been subscribers
I ordered a subscription for a friend who is 97 years old and
still lives independently in her home. I check on her often.
I know she will enjoy it as much or more than I do.
I have done private duty nursing care for 35 years, and for the
last nine years I have cared for mentally-challenged people from
ages 20 to 60 years.
I enjoy all the articles in the magazine and also the recipes.
Keep up the good work.

Eldon Gale Donaldson's
On a recent trip to Fort Myers, Florida, I came across a box
containing items that belonged to Eldon Gale Donaldson, who at
one time lived in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky.
The material included a Kentucky Motor Vehicle operator's license,
1955 Red Cross Membership Card, Navy dog tags with keys attached,
a 1952 Future Farmers of America card, and many pictures of his
shipmates and family.
From the Internet I found that Eldon died January 17, 1957, at
age 20, in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.
On the outside of the box there is a Christmas greeting that
reads, "To Kay Granny, from Taylor." I have no desire
to retain these documents other than to see that they are returned
to his family.
If anyone is interested in this information, please contact me
via e-mail and mark the subject box as E. G. Donaldson.
