Born and raised on a small farm
near Gracey, Kentucky, Lacy Thomas learned to read at age 3
and became a committed wordsmith, as well as infatuated with the
stars. He read enough to design and launch a solid fuel rocket at
age 13 (which roared out of sight and was never retrieved.)
Voracious is a good descriptor of his appetite for the written
word. While other students had a library index card, Lacy had his
own index card file box. He joined the Navy hoping to become an
astronaut, but flunked out of Annapolis; he did time as a radar man
and ship's photographer. Upon discharge he enrolled at the
University of Kentucky and worked in college as a DJ, taxi driver,
graphic artist (at WKYT-TV) and staff photographer at the Lexington
Herald Leader. He spent his time off hiking and taking pictures in
the Red River Gorge area.
He graduated with a degree in
accounting and spent most of his life in private industry. He also
found enough spare time to become a fair woodsman and pretty good
amateur astronomer. Lacy is the KY (at-large) contact for The
Sidewalk Astronomers, an international organization dedicated to
sharing astronomy with the public.
"GET OUT, LOOK UP, MARVEL!"
He has spent nearly all of his
professional career out of Kentucky but returned in 2002 and
hopefully, will never leave. He loves this beautiful state and the
many outdoor recreational opportunities it affords. Lacy and his
wife Brenda are members of a U S Forest Service volunteer group
(the Red River Gorge Trail Crew) that meets monthly in the gorge to
maintain the 50+ miles of trails.
It is a very well-read group and the discussions around the
evening camp fire are always most interesting.
Though Lacy is currently employed
by the state, he strives to find time to pursue astronomy, hiking,
cooking, reading/listening to books and playing with wood. He
makes unique bluebird houses, faerie houses, gnome homes and other
strange objects from branches, pods, shells and other objects
"discarded" by Mother nature. Occasionally he finds time to pen
his observations of people and nature.

Wells is a self-proclaimed writing imposter. After graduation
from college (UK, of course), she became a blood banker and worked
in hospitals in Lexington, Cincinnati, New Orleans, and then spent
21 years at Central Kentucky Blood Center in Lexington. In 1994
she returned to Casey County, her home, and worked two more years
in hospitals in Somerset and Liberty. She retired at a tender age
and pursued a part-time career in house cleaning, banking, blood
banking consulting, marketing, and trying not to get on any more
Joberta was a technical writer
during her career as a blood banker but it was never for fun. In
1998 Donna Carman, the new editor of The Casey County News
in Liberty, asked her to write a monthly opinion column called
It�s A Hoot. Over the subsequent years the column has appeared
more frequently than monthly and she has done other writing for the
paper. All of her writing has been for fun and she says, �I don�t
do murder, rape and pillaging, beauty pageants, or turkey- and
deer-shooting stories. Let the pros do those.�
Joberta lives on a farm in
Yosemite where she feeds a flock of turkeys, a herd of deer, a
passel of 'possums, a community of 'coons, a family of foxes, a
quartet of cattle, and a cat or two.

Nesbitt, a Pennsylvania native, has had one desire in life --
to be a successful musician and songwriter. At the age of 14

the more instruments he could play, the easier it would be to get
into a band.
At the age of
17 he learned to play drums and bass guitar. The piano soon
followed. Jon was being influenced by musicians such as John
Lennon, Bob Dylan and the guitar playing of Jimi Hendrex. He loved
the showmanship of Kiss. The list goes on and on.

wife Sandy moved to Stanford, Kentucky in the summer of 2008.

As a Kentucky writer, and poet,
we often survey the geographical locations of our lives. This
journey is composed of physical and spiritual beginnings for all of
us. As a writer and elementary teacher, James Pope has been
part of this landscape as a poet, educator, journalist, and editor.
Pope, who has traveled many times
to West Africa, is the author of two chap books: For the Love of
Pure Water and Alone in a Dark House. Alone in a Dark House is his
latest work that he wrote with his daughter, Claire Pope, who
helped illustrate the book. Christina Lovin, a distinguished
Kentucky poet wrote about Pope's work, "These are poems of
experience and memory in the mature voice of someone who
understands the cyclical nature of existence and has found an
acceptance of life with no cruel illusions."
"The musty space," "the muted
darkness," "the memory of distant seasons," and "the distant
feeling of something giving way" are all lines from Pope's poems
that often explain the physical, geographical, and religious
locations of his work.
Pope, who presently teaches 4th grade at Crab
Orchard Elementary School, is the father of Claire Pope, an art
history professor at Kentucky's Lindsey Wilson College and Justin
James Pope, who is completing his PhD in Colonial History at George

Utilities Company after 31 years of service. He graduated from the
University of Kentucky with a degree in creative writing and a

writing. When asked about his poetry, his reply is, "I want
to write in such a way that if I drop a copy of one of my poems on
Main Street and someone comes along and picks it up, they could
read and understand it. Where Walt Whitman may have failed, I want
to succeed as being a poet for the common man."

Brenda L. Murphy, a lifetime Kentucky resident loves the
art of expression. Whether it is through lyrics of a song, the
adventurous insight on the lives of characters in short stories, or
the ever moving words of inspiration found in a breath taking poem;
BL has found that writing is her form of expressing the road that
we call life.
At only 26 years of age, BL has
been compiling a portfolio filled with moving pieces that come
straight from her heart to paper. Some of these writings include
but are not limited to; "From Cutter to Cutting Edge" (a work of
inspirational writings to help families and victims of the ever
growing addiction of "cutting"), "Life's little Picnic" (a book of
poems written by BL which is set to be released through independent
publishing in the near future.), and the poem,"My Kentucky", a
piece that illustrates the greatness of the state through the use
of many of its trademarks and symbols. Recently BL Murphy received
a letter from Kentucky State Gov. Steven L. Beshear, expressing his
appreciation and liking for "My Kentucky." The governor said, "Thank
you for sending me a copy of your poem, 'My Kentucky'. It is a
charming piece with colorful imagery and creative use of the state
symbols. I appreciate your sharing this with me, and send best
wishes for your continued success."

Jack Forman, 51, lives with his wife Patricia in Lee County,
Kentucky, where they are working to establish a quiet Homestead.
This desire for a simpler life stems from years of working
maintenance in various factories across Central and Eastern
Kentucky most of his adult life. An aspiring writer and organic
farmer, Jacks inspirations for writing stem from his families roots
in farm life in Kentucky and memories of his Grandparents'
homestead during his childhood. In addition, events of the
homestead he and Patricia are building, as well as section hikes on
the Appalachian Trail, combine to create what he hopes are writings
of a quiet desire for peace and possibility.

History from the University of Louisville, where his work was

Recently, Bob had the cover feature article published in the Ohio
Valley History academic journal. In December, Bob's employer's
stock dropped about 95% and that was a bad time for a contract to
be expiring. He is now unemployed and would be glad to entertain
any job offers. In his new found free time, Bob has been making
public speaking engagements and doing volunteer work. He and his
wife Cassie enjoy sculling on the Ohio River, taking walks,
studying the bible and finding odd places to visit. This week is
was their fourth anniversary. For their honeymoon, Bob took his
wife by train to Glacier National Park in Montana where she was
afraid of Grizzly Bears and then to Mt. St. Helens, where she was
afraid of a volcanic eruption. His mother says it sounded like one
of Bob's Boy Scout Camping Trips instead of a honeymoon. Cassie
has since changed her mind and vows to return to the mountains of
