Grayson • Olive Hill Quarterly Spring 2019 - Page 3

Editor’s Note We are still feeling winter's bitter edge on the winds in Carter County as we turn our attentions to spring and beyond. Glenn Puit of The Ashland Daily Independent provides this issue of Grayson/Olive Hill Quarterly with an inside look at an innovative business in downtown Pikeville which will offer guests a first-and- last stop along Kentucky's Bourbon Trail. Husband and wife team Chris and Rose Whitt return to these pages with the latest chapter in their ongoing series, “Finding Kentucky In Other Places.” Correspondent Michelle Brand and family visited one of the area’s often overlooked natural features, neighboring Elliott County's Laurel Gorge. The Brands share their experiences hiking through the beautiful terrain near Sandy Hook. Staff Writer Jeremy D. Wells contributed a story about "On the Trail of Bigfoot" from Producer/Director Seth Breedlove which takes a look at the evolution of the Bigfoot phenomenon, and different views on the study of the cryptid creature. This six part series takes him from Washington State to Oklahoma to Kentucky and Ohio in his search for the mythical beast.
