    Blondie9 or Sunshine :
    I'm not sure who is posting, since it's under Blondie9's account but signing off as Sunshine, but anyway I posted the names you gave me. Please check for accuracy. What do you mean, your computer won't let you sign in? This not being able to sign in is driving me nuts, since looking at the message board as an administrator does not reveal any problems.

    Looking at those photos, Shirley Colyer and Lida Jones were real cuties and apparently good students and talented. Anybody know what happened to either of them ?

    My computer and phone was down since I got up this morning. Hope this don't happen much. I had planned on doing alot of my writing on here today. If it gets as cold as they say for tomorrow, it will probably be down again tomorrow. Oh well, I'm certainly looking forward to spring getting here. Was everyone else ever able to sign in on here?

    Up here in Lexington, our power was out, too. It just came back on. But it's weird outside. Everything is ice. There's no traffic at all. Schools K-12 are already called off tomorrow and UK may call off classes for a second day, which rarely happens. You can't stand up outside, not even on the grass. Even the neighborhood dogs have their feet sliding out from under them. Trees and bushes are bowing low, some of them bent almost double. And we're supposed to get more "wintry mix" tonight. People can't get in their cars; they have to chip away at the ice even to get the doors open, then they have to chip the ice carefully off the windows, and if your driveway has the least slope to it, forget getting out unless you keep a bucket of sand in the garage. I like Winter. I like snow, sledding, skiing, snowmen, shovelling snow and throwing snowballs. But this ice is something totally different. If this is what Winter is going to be, let's get on to March.

    Scarlett :
    I don't know. Those emails go to administrators so they can go to the site and approve the application right away. But the only two people registered as administrators are Nancy and me. I just checked. You're registered as a member. So I do not understand why you're getting that message. I'll look into it, but we're having power outages, which may slow me down.
    In the meantime, you might want to check our most recent additions to the photo page.

    Has anyone got on here today. This last post just says one day ago Coach, so I have no idea when it was posted. Because of the bad weather, I lost access to my phone and internet. That was on Monday night. I'm definitly lost without my phone and internet. However I did get alot of writing done and watched lots of movies. Hopefully my phone will be working soon also. I love winter as long as it don't take away my phone and internet. I'm hooked!

    Huge sections of Lexington are still without power. UK is just reopening today at mid-day after two days out, but I don't know if we can stay open. Sections of the city will gain power briefly, then lose it again. At my house, right down the street from UK, we've been without power since Tuesday night. We have a fireplace so the living room stays warm, but the rest of the house is icy, and we have no hot water or lights. I can get on the internet using my laptop with its batteries plus my wireless connection, but I have to just get on and off since I have to space my minutes out. My batteries only store three hours of use. I just check my email, check this website, then close back down. Streets up here look like a war zone with trees and large branches down, usually laying over downed power lines they took with them. The sound of chain saws fills the air. I have no idea how things are in Somerset. The news on the radio up here talks about Danville and Stanford being pretty bad, but doesn't mention Somerset. I've sent a few emails to IRemember and others but received no responses so I assume they may also be without connections. We'll just all have to hang in there. Four weeks and three days weeks until March 1.

    Coach O, I almost forgot how bad the weather can get here. I've been living in Victoria for the past three years, and didnt have weather like this. However, my husband tells me the weather has been bad in Victoria also this year. I had my little kerosene lamp and lots of candles just in case the electric goes off too. I will probably invest in a good generator after this. My blood has definitly thinned over the last time I was living here. I certainly miss the gas fireplace I had in Chesapeake. I left the lap top with my husband, and miss it at times like this.I haven't heard about alot of damage here in somerset, but did hear about Stanford and Danville. I too, wait on spring to arrive. I like winter and snow but not when I loose my phone and internet. I'm just hooked!

    Nancy : Where are you getting all these great pictures? I feel like I'm wandering back through a museum! I graduated in the mid fifties and just as you said, we really were the best school in the county. Dr. Swearingen was a great principal. I agree with you about Mrs. Cowan. The cool new teachers when I was there were Miss Schoolcraft and Miss Dykes. We were up out of the grades before they came, but all us high school guys thought they were pretty and we envied the various older guys who would escort them to games. My best memory is of our second win over Somerset. We beat them at home and they spent all year saying they wanted to get us back at their place. We had to play the district over there, and in the finals we beat them again. I will always remember the Somerset players laying down on the floor and crying and their cheerleaders crying and their crowd just sitting quiet and we were celebrating like we won the state. My other great memory is of our Florida trip. I'd never seen the ocean. Thank you for doing this site.

    Geezer- It's good seeing someone new found our Ferguson site. If you graduated in the mid 50's, you probably knew my cousin's husband, Joe Frank Minton. Becky and Joe Frank live in London. I also just yesterday talked with my friend Carol Gregory Stephens. She is married to Larry Stephens. It's great seeing people get on here and be as pleased as you are about our forum. The photos are great. Coach and Nancy and some others really done a great job putting it together. I hope you enjoy reading alot of the stories on here and also on topix-"Do you remember Mr Moore-principal at Ferguson school?" I love reading through it all and seeing so many stories from people that lived in Ferguson and went to Ferguson school. Hopefully you will have some interresting stories to tell us also. Once again- Welcome!

    I'm not Nancy, but she splits her time between this website and a massive thread over on Topix : Somerset, Ky which also deals with Ferguson. We get the photos from three sources : some people post them directly on the Topix board (scroll halfway down and look to your right), some people bring them to meetings we hold in the Somerset Library, and some of the photos are scanned directly from old yearbooks, which is why they seem dark, faint or slightly out of focus. Any photos you might have from the mid fifties would be greatly appreciated. If you could scan them onto Topix, we can download, edit and upload them here. We like photos where the people are seen doing things and the faces are up close so we can recognize and identify them. We would especially love photos of the debate team, field trips, science labs, drama performances, band or orchestra, science fair entries, speech team, and any other activities. We are, as you can see, heavy with basketball and cheerleading photos, but we have zero pictures of baseball, bowling, or other teams. We'd love any additional photos you might have of your Florida trip. Please stay in touch. Right now, no one is posting over here, but most of them are probably over on the Topix thread, which is labelled "When Mr. Moore Was Principal At Ferguson." You might go over there and join their discussion. Most of the posters were in school between 1960-68, so your time period is greatly under represented, and you could help us fill in that gap. Welcome to this site. We hope you drop back by several times a day. Once the bad weather passes, hopefully it will again become busy.

    Blondie9 It don't seem as if anyone gets on here. I just decided to try and see if anyone has been on, and seen where you have posted. You are right about alot of stress in everyones life. We just need to try and think more positive about everything, and try to let God handle all the things that are too much for us to handle alone. Today was my Birthday and I've had a great day, just pampering myself and reading. Getting too old for too much stress now. You have a great evening and maybe I'll see you on here again soon.

    I never see anyone on here anymore. Hope everyone is doing better, healthwise. I'm hoping spring will be here soon. Maybe we will all start feeling better then. I was sitting here today thinking about sitting in the class room at Ferguson 40 plus years ago. We none had any idea that we would be on the internet like now, having the Ferguson School Forum.
    Over the past months, we have met so many different students that we knew at Ferguson School. It all started on the "Does anyone remember Mr Moore"? We all reminised about so many things, and this Ferguson School forum was brought to life. We have all talked about so much on the other forum and I think everyone is thinking theres no more to talk about. We can still keep this going and plan things for this summer on here. I have been thinking of alot of fun things for everyone.
    And I'm sure there are lots of you that can think of some more things for everyone to do. I will run my ideas by you all, and you can let me know what you think.
    Picnics, Horse shoe games, hiking trips, yard sales,auctions, and hope more ideas from some of you.
    I love the "summernite cruise" during the summer. Hope to see you all there.

    Nancy and/or Mr. Omlor :
    I am a 1961 graduate of Ferguson High School and a former Warhorse. I am thankful for the opportunity to go to Ferguson in the 1st and 4th-12th grades. I spent my second and third grade years at Pisgah, a two room school south of Somerset.
    I was browsing yesterday afternoon and what a pleasant surprise to see your website. I appreciate your efforts and the early response of so many people. I think it strange that it took the interests of those who did not actually graduate from there to start what should have been started by the "Old Guard," but I guess the older folk are a little slow to adopt the new technology.
    The potential of this site is tremendous. I applaud your efforts. When attending some of the early reunions of the whole school in the 1990s or early 2000s, I often thought how there ought to be a microphone and recorder set up in the gym so people could come by and tell their stories of what happened on that sacred ground. I think this site can do that. Instead of an oral history, we can go one better and have it written down. And the pictures add a great deal to it. I hope you all have not bitten off more than you can chew. This could be a full time job.
    I have hundreds of pictures and have researched the 47th District Tournament and Ferguson in general from 1927-1965 (I would appreciate any help for the years after that). I understand Ferguson was a member of the KHSAA from 1927-1967. I am currently working on putting a few bricks in the courtyard of the KHSAA office in Lexington to commemorate Ferguson and the old 47th District. When researching this, I ran into some interesting side lights, one of which is the account of the building of the school gym which I am sending. I am also sending a few pictures of the buildings and students for you to check out . I will send others, a few at a time, so as not to overwhelm you with work.
    I am a 1966 graduate of Cumberland College in Williamsburg. I have lived all my adult life in Hopkinsville, teaching history and health and coaching basketball at Hopkinsville High School. I married Polly Cathcart of Hopkinsville and am blessed with three children : Jayne Ellen, John Ryan and Natalie. We have four grandchildren.
    I have, with God's help, taught Sunday School live over radio station WHOP for 38 years. Now I have a website (www.adultbibleclass.com). I am also now on tv, and you can see us on the internet at www.lite987whop.com each Sunday morning at 10:20 - 11 Eastern time.
    My major hobby is collecting Indian artifacts and I am especially interested in the Little River Clovis Complex. I have written a book, My One Hundred Favorite Artifacts From The Little River Clovis Complex.
    The pictures I am attaching of the school buildings were taken in 1959. The others have dates on them.
    Thanks so much for being here.

    CY :
    Thank you for the kind comments and welcome to the website. And thank you very much for those great photos. Over the next few days I will mount them one by one over on the photos page. Please stay with us. Right now this forum is rather quiet but that is because it has been a hard Winter in Pulaski County and many of our regular posters have been ill, suffering from one ailment or another, involved with cleaning up the damages from ice and snow, or, in a few cases, out of town on trips South to Myrtle Beach or other warm havens. As things settle down, hopefully traffic will pick back up. But it is good to hear from you. Most of our regular posters are from the mid to late 1960s, and we need representation from the years you bring us. We do, however, have Sunshine and Blondie9, who were in school with you. I am sure they will be thrilled to share memories with you.
