“I recommend, to those who don’t already receive it, Kentucky Explorer magazine, published by Charles Hayes in Jackson. It is a gem. … Much of the Explorer is given over to nostalgia. There are pictures of swinging bridges over creeks now spanned by concrete, of stores and post offices no longer devoted to their purpose. There are photographs of Main Street, with its diagonally parked cars and over-the-sidewalk signs and businesses run by familiar people. … It is a good magazine. I think you would enjoy it.”

John Ed Pearce – Former Herald-Leader Columnist
