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 March 2013
Misses Home State
When I read The Kentucky Explorer it feels like I have been transported back in time. I really like Kentucky and still miss my home state. It is such a beautiful place. It is truly my old Kentucky home.
My dad moved the family to Michigan in July 1946. I will never forget that day. As a child, I was hurt in leaving the farm. We were all in a Model A Ford. It was sad to hear the train whistle blow. It turned out not to be a good move.

White Half Runner
Bean Seeds Wanted
I am trying to find old-fashioned, white half runner bean seeds, as they seem to be replaced on the market with an inferior crossbred variety.
If any reader has extras to spare, I am very interested in purchasing them.

Grew Up In McCreary County
I really enjoy The Kentucky Explorer and look forward to it each month.
I grew up in McCreary County, Kentucky, and moved to Sidney Ohio in 1955. My wife and I go back to Kentucky when we can.
Keep all those wonderful old photos coming in the magazine.
