Maury E Lewis really likes writing of Sharon Whitehurst

Comments re photo 66268 Between Cloudbursts Rainy day pictures Willows Maury E Lewis writes:
It is so good to read some of Sharon Whitehurst stories again. I really like her writings. Even if she didn't send pictures you can see everything she talks about. The joys of reading with the eyes and the mind. Thank you Sharon, for writing. Maury E Lewis --Maury E Lewis
Thanks Maury and you're right that Sharon Whitehurst can do more with words than about anyone can do with a photo, except Sharon Whitehurst. Her words make us feel, see, remember, taste, and they waken all the senses. But, there are actually six photos today. Four with this story: The Whitehurst Diaries: Between Cloudbursts - Rainy days album and two in the paired photos: Sharon Whitehurst: Crimson clover, up close in Casey Co. and Sharon Whitehurst: Crimson clover, up close in Casey Co.. We may not have had them all linked when you checked earlier. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. - EW/LW

News from Kentucky Fish & Wildlife

FRANKFORT, KY (Mon 2 May 2016) - Hungry black bears are now roaming the mountains of southeastern Kentucky looking for food, and feeding them is against Kentucky law.

"Bears fresh out of their dens haven't eaten for a few months and are hungry when they leave their dens in spring," said John Hast, bear program biologist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "Natural foods are still sparse through the month of May, so the bears are looking for an easy meal."
