Remembering Danielle Symmes: So special God needed her

Kristina Anderson Hoover writes:
I'm Danielle's cousin. I used to baby sit her and her brother when they lived in Anderson, IN. She was the sweetest little girl, who loved to laugh and play. I used to hold her all the time, but then they moved and I lost contact with them. I got to talk to her online a few times and she still had that long beautiful hair. I'm so sorry, Aunt Debbie, Uncle jim and Richie for your loss. I wish I would of come to visit, but like a lot of us, we think we don't have time. This is just another reason to show us no one never knows when it's someone's time. I'll never understand why it had to be her. All I know is she must have been so special God needed her. I love you all; to my family you are all in my prayers - Kristina Anderson Hoover

Kentucky Afield Outdoors: Blue Water Trails - Floyd's Fork

The Parklands at Floyd's Park is a Series of Five Parks and 27 miles of floating water. Click on headline for complete column and photo(s)
Next earlier KY Afield Outdoors column: KY Afield Outdoors: Leave young wildlife alone this time of year. Posted May 9, 2014. (This article is the twenty-sixth in the periodic Blue Water Trails series highlighting the floating, fishing and tourism opportunities on Kentucky's streams and rivers).

By Lee McClellan
Associate Editor, KY Afield Outdoors

FRANKFORT, KY - Back in the time when Elvis swept through the nation like a prairie fire and cars had fins, the Watterson Expressway in Louisville was a two-lane bypass and possessed sidewalks.

Floyd's Fork Creek seemed way out in the country then, surrounded by pasture lands with a working distillery along its banks. The ensuing decades saw suburban development creep ever outward toward the creek. By the time the Gene Snyder Freeway completed its loop around Louisville in the late 1980s, Floyd's Fork wasn't out in the country anymore.
