Cruising the Colonel's

CORBIN — There were several “Little Red Corvettes” (not to mention blue, white, black and yellow) leaving KFC’s Sanders Cafe in Corbin during the lunch hour Friday. Led by the one used by Kentucky State Police (pictured), a total of 23 ‘Vettes stopped there to eat, as part of their “One Lap Tour of Kentucky.”

Sponsored by the Kentucky State Police’s Trooper Island and the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, the cool cars began at the museum, then headed eastward. Among the stops made were Trooper Island, the Stearns community in McCreary County, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, Renfro Valley and Levi Jackson State Park.

After getting their fix of fried chicken, the ‘Vettes trekked northward, and will end up at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea. It’s the third year for the One Lap Tour, which is a fundraiser for both groups, and is used by Trooper Island for their scholarship fund.

If you missed it yesterday, don’t worry, the shiny sports cars will be there next Friday, during the lunch hour at the same place.

The soft whistle of a flute floated through the room as audience members listened in awe to tales of the Thunderbolt people. “This land that you’re now sitting on was that of Thunderbolt people,” said Thunderbolt descendant David Owens. Owens and Indian flute player Robert Mullinax stopped at the Laurel County Library Friday night to entertain with spoken legends, folk lore and tales of the bygone Thunderbolts. Audiences were captivated by stories passed down from the Thunderbolt of how things came to be. Tales about fire, pipes and Kentucky — just to name a few — were shared by Ownes over the course of an hour with Mullinax playing behind him.
