4 Places in1 BY ED SPITZKE

Sullyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Baresque Restaurant can be viewed as four places in one. How? The layout of the restaurant caters to different clientele.

The indoor bar area caters to clients who come in from work and just want to stop for a drink or a couple of beers and are content to sit at the bar or bar tables for that. Perhaps, the largest area is outside and provides two separate atmospheres for those who like to congregate for entertainment and/or association.

Our Service Is Available Year Round!! By purchasing a yearly towing package in advance, similar to AAA for cars, you receive free towing due to a breakdown on the water, free jump starts and we bring fuel if you run out of gas (you pay for the gas), as many times as needed through the year. We service all of Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow, 24 hours a day, all year long. We are fully insured, employ only licensed captains and have the proper equipment to provide service to any boat on the lake. Marine Assist is also a fully equipped marine salvage service provider. We raise sunken boats and work with all insurance companies on those claims. Marine salvage is not covered by the membership program. Visit www.cumberlandtowboat.com or call 877-662-2555 (877 ON CALL LC) for more details or to sign up for service today. 18

to White Oak Junction (County Rd. 566). You will turn south and cross Rock Creek and travel uphill. About half way up the hill you need to look for a trail head to Koger Arch on your left. You can park off the road. The trail drops off the road, across a stream and then up the ridge. It is only a short distance to the arch. You can explore under this arch and get great pictures. Next we want to take you to Buffalo Arch while we are in that neighborhood. Continuing on Ky. 1363, you junction with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rattlesnake Ridge Roadâ&#x20AC;? (Ky. 3258) and continue along 1363 untill it dead ends into County Rd 564 at Bell Farm. The next intersection is to the left, County Road 562. Rd 564 continues south to Hemlock Grove Picnic Area and Great Meadow Campgrounds and dead ends near the Tennessee line. But County Road 562 takes you south until it junctions with Ky 167 just above the Tennessee line and where it takes you into Picket State Park. Before you reach the 167 junction, there is a trailhead that drops off the left side of the road.

The trailhead is trail 634A to Buffalo Arch. This is a really large natural arch with picture opportunities from many angles. Interestingly, this trail branches off to Trail 634, the Parker Mountain Trail that travels the ridge line for some miles and then drops down to Great Meadow Campgroundsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;about a six mile trail, full of wild blueberries in the springtime. Another large,beautiful and interesting arch is on the way to Blue Heron Mine off Ky. 742. That route intersects with an unnumbered road that leads to Bear Creek. Just follow the signs to Bear Creek. You will pass an intersection to Bear Creek Horse Campgrounds, but continue on the main road to Split Bow Arch. An overlook along that road gives you a birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye view of the arch. Continuing on the main road, there is an intersection with a trail to an overlook of the Big South Fork River and a trailhead to Split Bow Arch. It is a short trail to the arch. The trail takes you above the arch and then across stairs that lead around and below the arch. Again, this presents a great location for numerous

pictures of a deep forest setting and an impressive natural arch. Of course the “King” of all arches in McCreary County is in the “Natural Arch Recreation Area”. It is located conveniently not far off U.S. 27 north of Whitley City and just after the intersection with Ky. 90 to Cumbesrland Falls. Shortly after that interstection, Ky. Rte 927 to the right, leads to the Natural Arch Reacreation Area, managed by the U.S. Forest Service. This is a fee usage area. There are picnic shelters, an amphitheater, overlooks and several trails, along with a path to the arch itself. While overlooks toward the arch give an impressive sight, hiking to the arch, getting under it and seeing the large shell-like shelter behind it is worth the effort. A trail goes completely around the ridgetop of the arch and a number of other trails in the forest and at overlooks offer views and several miles of hiking enjoyment. (In an additional story on the Big South Fork National Park, we highlight another spectacular arch in Tennessee, the Twin Arches—worth the trip!)

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Our Nature! McCreary County

offers the best in

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE! BY JANIE SLAVEN

There are a lot of things which set McCreary County apart from other Kentucky counties. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Commonwealthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youngest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; having just celebrated its Centennial in March 2012. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only county not to have an incorporated city. But who needs the city when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in an outdoor paradise? Located on the Tennessee line, McCreary County is at the heart of southern Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular outdoor attractions. With easy access to Lake Cumberland, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, Daniel Boone National Forest and the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, visitors can experience the best in hiking, horseback ULGLQJÂżVKLQJFDQRHLQJDQGND\DNLQJ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have your own equipment; rentals are available. The county is laced with a network of trails, including 54 miles of the famed Sheltowee Trace. Large portions of the Trace are open to horses and mountain bikes but the only way to complete the trail â&#x20AC;&#x201D; spanning from Pickett State Park in Tennessee to Rowan County, Kentucky â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is on foot. As outdoor enthusiasts have become increasingly devoted to Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other horse â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the ATV â&#x20AC;&#x201D; McCreary County

24

has worked to create more opportunities for the off-road lover. Opening just this May, the 1000-acre Skullbone ATV Recreation Area off West KY 92 currently offers more than 50 miles of developed trails with more on the way. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather watch than ride, the Southern Kentucky Off Road Complex in Strunk offers a full slate of evening races all summer long. For those needing a slower but no less breathtaking experience, McCreary County is home to 25 documented waterfalls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Yahoo Falls, the tallest waterfall in Kentucky â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and 40 arches, such as the spectacular 90-foot Natural Arch. Our streams and forests are timeless, but the county itself came to prominence during the coal and lumber boom at the turn of the 20th century. The community of Stearns served as the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local headquarters. Today the town stands as a living monument to that bygone era. History buffs can peruse through the McCreary County Museum before hopping aboard the Big South Fork Scenic Railway, which will travel down a river gorge and back in time to the Blue Heron Mining Camp. At Barthell, another mining camp restored in meticulous detail, visitors can tour up to 300 feet inside an original mine shaft.

Hunting for the perfect souvenir? <RXÂśOOÂżQGLWLQKLVWRULF6WHDUQVRUDORQJ Cumberland Falls Highway (KY 90). Shops such as the McCreary Mountain Craft Center, which is celebrating its 50th year in 2013, are stocked with the wares of local artisans dedicated to celebrating Appalachian tradition. :KHQPHDOWLPHFRPHV\RXÂśOOÂżQG several unique alternatives to familiar national chains (though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here too. Two spots specializing in local fare can be found right on Main Street in Whitley City. Courthouse Corner Coffees & Cafe boasts the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Coffeeâ&#x20AC;? in McCreary County, as voted by locals. The Dairy Bar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; home to the Dixie Whopper â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is a genuine drive-in which has garnered national attention. With all this to do (and more!), visitors will need several days to take it all in. Luckily there are accommodations here to suit all tastes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from convenient motels located just off the highway to the quaint Farmhouse Inn Bed and Breakfast as well as cabins off the beaten path. Both primitive and RV campsites are plentiful, too. For more information about your new favorite family mountain getaway, visit www.mccrearytourism.com or call tollfree 1-888-284-3718.

Woodson Bend Resort is opening the resort to the Public to come see their facilities.

Nancy can help you with either since she manages over 30 units for rental and also has a number of Woodson Bend Condos for sale. Nancy Bigelow asserts that this is one of the best times to buy into the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownership. The drop in the housing market and sales has also affected condos at Woodson Bend. The overall economy in this country has created a â&#x20AC;&#x153;buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketâ&#x20AC;? for homes , and that includes the condos at Woodson Bend.

Why buy at Woodson Bend? What about maintenance fees? The cost of condo maintenance should be compared to the cost of home ownership by factoring in lawn and landscaping care, outside maintenance costs of the siding, roof, staining, structural repairs, water and sewer, 24 hour security, insurance on the condo, etc. All this is included in the monthly maintenance fee.

Do you like to cook and enjoy meeting and associating with new people? Is your company looking for a CORPORATE RETREAT FACILITY? Do you have a large family of married children and grandchildren and you want a FAMILY VACATION HOME?

The Acorn & Fox Inn, an 8,000 square foot, bed and breakfast establishment was built on Lake Cumberland and is now available for rent and/or purchase. Managed by Nancy Bigelow, of Lake Cumberland Realty, rentals are now being accepted and the property is also being shown for potential buyers of the property and business. June 2013

Some history on the establishment of the bed and breakfast is interesting. The Inn was designed by Myrna Noble, a ÂżQHDUWVJUDGXDWHRI(DVWHUQ.HQWXFN\ University, with help from daughter, Sally, an architectural engineer. Built on a steep cliff overlooking the South Fork of Lake Cumberland, the two-story structure is surrounded by pine trees and affords total privacy. All but three of the eight bedrooms face the lake, and all have private baths and king-size beds; three-rooms have jacuzzis. Two of the rooms also have twin beds to better accommodate families. All the rooms, common areas, kitchen and dining rooms are decorated with antiques the original owners, Al and Myrna Nobel collected throughout their 35 year marriage. They often said to each other the inn was just an excuse to have a place for storing their antiques that has an estimated value of $50,000 included in listed

price. Business at the new inn was brisk with an average of four couples per week coming from as near as Ohio and Tennessee, and as far as Australia, Russia and Israel. But cancer claimed the life of Myrna and other health issues have plagued Al, so that he put the place up for sale. As mentioned, Lake Cumberland Realty under Nancy Bigelow is managing this property for overnight or weekly rentals. Gourmet breakfast included. The whole house can be rented for reunions or family vacations.

BY EDGAR SPITZKE

In our “Discover Lake Cumberland” magazine, we highlighted the attractions of the Big South Fork National Park and it’s facilities, railroad, Blue Heron Mine and trails in Kentucky. Just a little farther south and into Tennessee, (less than an hour’s drive from Somerset) the lower portion and greater portion of the park offers great places to visit and enjoy. June 2013

Get ready for

G N I P CAM Season

Camping is a popular outdoor activity that attracts many enthusiasts year after year. Some people camp every month while others only have time for one great excursion into the wilderness each year. This year, millions of camping trips will take place across the country. Preparation is key to a successful camping trip. Whether campers plan to spend one night or several in the great outdoors, there are certain tips to follow to ensure your trip is as fun and safe as possible. GEAR In order to be comfortable, stock up on camping gear. Tents, sleeping bags and other gear need not be the most expensive. Quality, moderately priced gear works well, too. With care and maintenance, camping gear can last for several years. $WHQWZLOOEH\RXU¿UVWOLQHRI defense against the outdoors. Although plenty of people prefer to sleep out under the stars, a tent is a place to avoid inclement weather and insects and have a little privacy. Your tent June 2013

need not be too big, unless you plan to share it with many of your fellow campers. Since you will be spending the majority of your time outdoors, don’t feel pressured to buy the tent equivalent of a three-room suite. A good tent should be sturdy, weatherUHVLVWDQWDQGODUJHHQRXJKWR¿WWKH people who will be sleeping in it during your trip. Invest in a pad to place on the ÀRRURIWKHWHQWWRVKLHOG\RXIURP the hard ground.

Otherwise VDQGZLFKHVVKRXOGVXI¿FH6RPH campgrounds have grills and picnic tables available. Otherwise, you can cook hot dogs right over your open FDPS¿UH

WHERE TO CAMP Campsites may be public or private. Public campgrounds are generally funded by tax dollars and maintained by parks departments or government RI¿FHV7KH\PD\EHIUHHWRHQWHURU charge a nominal fee for use. Because of the low cost involved, they may be quite popular and crowded during peak camping season. Private campsites are run by private companies or individuals and may also feature RV hookups. In many instances, private campsites sell memberships to interested parties, which gives access to certain private areas. They may have more amenities than public campsites. Private sites also may employ security personnel and maintenance crews to ensure the areas are clean and safe and to enforce campground rules. This may not be the case at public campsites, where conditions may be inconsistent from site to site. An online search of both public and private campsites nearby can help you determine which option best suits you. 47

Consider national parks, national forests and even the Army Corps of Engineers, which manages many recreational areas. AVOID CRITTERS Animals and insects are part of the camping experience. While they are unavoidable, there are some measures you can take to reduce the propensity for bothersome bug bites or clever critters raiding the cooler. Keeping a clean campsite is perhaps the most effective animal and insect deterrent. Ants and animals are attracted to food bits scattered around the site, so be sure to gather trash and dispose of it properly each day. Try not to store food on the ground. Whenever possible, keep food locked away in an airtight cooler or other container. Dry foods can be stored under lock and key in the car. Racoons, squirrels, birds, and skunks all have been known to patrol campgrounds for an easy meal. Also, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to lure in larger predators, such as bears or wild cats. To avoid insects, steer clear of perfumed products. Keep lights dim at

night, as bright lights attract mosquitoes and other biting bugs. Use appropriate insect repellents to help further repel bugs. CLOSER ISNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T ALWAYS BETTER Many new campers make the mistake of choosing campsites that are in close proximity to bathrooms and clubhouses and other reminders of civilization. But these areas tend to feature heavy foot DQGFDUWUDIÂżFDQGFDQPDNHIRUDQRLV\ experience. To avoid the lights, sounds and bustle of too many people, stick with campsites farther off the beaten path. You may need to walk a little farther, but you will likely enjoy a more peaceful camping experience. PLAN FOR THE WETNESS Even if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rain, dew is an inevitable part of camping outdoors. Warm weather with high humidity can make dew even more plentiful. Use a shower curtain or another plastic impenetrable liner beneath your tent to reduce wetness and chilliness while you sleep. Be sure to bring in clothes and

remove items from your clotheslines before you retire for the night if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them damp the next morning. Use tarps to cover anything that should not get wet. Be sure to pack plenty of dry socks and changes of clothes and store them in zipper-top bags in the event clothing does get wet. Wet clothes can be uncomfortable and increase your risk for hypothermia. CARRY IN AND CARRY OUT Part of the magic of camping is being able to enjoy nature and experience the great outdoors. It is crucial to protect natural landscapes as much as possible and to exercise caution around plant life. In addition, be mindful of animal habitats. What you bring to the campsite, including trash, should be removed when you are done. Do not leave a mess behind. Camping can be an enjoyable and inexpensive vacation option. Learning the ropes and heeding some advice can make camping an enjoyable getaway year after year.

When the economy took a turn for the worse several years ago, many families had to cut costs in order to make ends meet. For many families, that meant leaving vacations on WKHFXWWLQJURRPĂ&#x20AC;RRU:KLOHWKH economy has rebounded, uncertainty surrounding that comeback has prevailed for many families, who remain hesitant to book a traditional vacation for fear of spending money they might be better off saving. 7KHVDFULÂżFHRIWUDGLWLRQDOYDFDWLRQV has led many families to embrace the â&#x20AC;&#x153;staycation,â&#x20AC;? wherein families still take time off to be with one another but do so largely at home rather than heading off to an exotic locale or resort. A staycation is a great way for families to rediscover their own communities and spend quality time together without the hustle and bustle of airports or interstates. Families ZKRVWLOOÂżQGWKHPVHOYHVKHVLWDQWWR commit to a more traditional vacation

can heed the following tips to ensure their staycation is a success. * Go out to dinner. Part of the fun of a family vacation is getting to enjoy some nights out on the town. But even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not straying far from home this year, you can still enjoy the cuisine your community has to offer. Dine out a few nights during your time off, making sure to enjoy a few different restaurants instead of relying on one your family frequents throughout the year. Dining out on a weeknight will create the feel of a more traditional vacation, and you PLJKWMXVWÂżQGDQHZUHVWDXUDQW\RX and your family love and can revisit in the years to come. * Absorb the local culture. The daily grind has a way of making life hectic, and chances are you and your family donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to enjoy your own communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culture throughout the year. Take advantage of the time afforded you by your staycation to

soak up all the culture and recreational activities your community has to offer. Visit nearby museums, take in a performance at your local theater or explore a nearby park, be it for a day of hiking or a more laid back picnic in the sun. This can help everyone reacquaint themselves with the reasons you chose to settle down in your community. * Go camping. Just because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a staycation doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you have to stay home. Spend a few nights away from home by taking the family on a camping trip. The fee to stay at a nearby campsite is negligible when compared to the cost of hotel rooms for an entire family, and you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend nearly as much on food because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to bring your own to the campsite.

Coastal Population Report examining population trends from 1970 to 2020, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that 39 percent of the United States population lived in counties directly on the shoreline. Make time to visit the beach on your staycation, and you might be able to recreate the feeling of a more traditional getaway. Staycations have become a staple for families looking to avoid expensive resort vacations. But staying close to home can still be just as fun as traveling abroad.

MEMORIAL DAY CALENDAR BY EDGAR SPITZKE

Memorial Day programs offer many recreational activities and opportunities for visitors to Lake Cumberland for the holidays. Memorial Day Services are foremost for some who wish to show their respects for the soldiers who have fought in times past. Memorial Day Services will begin at Zollicoffer Park, May 27 at 9 a.m. It is hosted by the MSBA. Confederate commemoration services are held at Zollicoffer Park beginning at 9 a.m. while National Services are held at Mill Springs National Cemetery at 11 a.m. There will be a picnic at the Visitor Center following the commemoration ($5 hamburger or hotdog, chips and drink). On May 25 the Mill Springs Cornbread Festival will be held. Featured at the parking lot of the mill, there promises to be cornbread, music and crafts. The Festival is hosted by the Monticello Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club. Also, the Monticello Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club gift shop opens that day at the mill. As discussed in detail in another article, the May Somernites Cruise will be held Memorial Day weekend with its Wal-mart Block Party on Friday the 24, and Fun Run, Show and Shine and Cruising the Strip on Saturday the 25th. Most area swimming pools will be opening this weekend. Somersplash water park opens at 10 a.m. on the 25th.

They are perfect for lake tours to look at budding blossoms, fall foliage or waterfront homes, and Grandpa can take the grandkids swimming in a cove. They are easy to board, hold a lot of people, and the tall rails along the edge are ideal for young passengers. Over the years, these boats have seen substantial improvements, says Dave Bigge, director of operations at MarineMaxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake Ozark, Missouri, store.

Boat manufacturers also pay more attention to creature comforts these days and pontoons often feature large shade (Bimini) tops, abundant storage and ergonomic seating. And most pontoon boats have adequate power for light watersports (tubing). â&#x20AC;&#x153;A two-log pontoon is an affordable way for a family or large group of friends to enjoy the water,â&#x20AC;? Bigge says. But the real evolution in pontoons comes with the addition of a third sponson. These â&#x20AC;&#x153;three-log boatsâ&#x20AC;? offer the versatility that many families want on the water, Bigge says. -XVWOLNHDWZRORJSRQWRRQERDWVZLWKWKUHHĂ&#x20AC;RDWVVHDW 12 to 14 people.
