Flaming Arrow Patrol--on November 5, the Webelos II &',g Arrow Patrol went to the James Salute Center, at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, in Frankfort.

Pictured (left to right) are: Josh Bennett; Eric Finch; Kevin Ginter; James Hawkins; Bobby Lyons; Brandon Tem- ple; and Cody Wireman. These young men have now gone on to join Boy Scout Troops 222, in Owingsville, and 58 in Morehead. Stand- ing in the back is Elizabeth Hawkins. sound, she soon won over audiences and critics with finely crafted songs and a sound that's all her own. One reviewer dubbed her as "the best back-porch discovery since Doily Parton tumbled out of the Appala- chians" "I do not claim to be country, I do not claim to be pop, I do not claim to be folk, totally -- even though most of my circuit is folk," said Earle "There's a little something there for everyone." She and singer-guitarist Mark Stu- art gained a large following around their hometown of Nashville and eventually began touring both as a duo and individually throughout the U.S. and Europe. Their popularity soared following the release of their award-winning single "Dancin' With Them That Brung Me" in 2000. Although married since 1993, the two continued to release separate recordings until deciding to official- ly bind their acts together this year. Their third collaboration, "Must Be Live", is a two-disc set of their best songs designed to commemorate their on-stage merger. Stacey and Mark are currently working on their next CD tentatively titled "Fishbowl." The free concert is presented by Morehead State Public Radio (MSPR) and the University's Ken- tucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM). Sponsors include Toyota Motor Manufacturing of George- town, Farmers Mercantile, Morehead Tourism Commission, Poppy Moun- tain Bluegrass Festival, Root-A-Bak- er's Bakery, Kentucky Folk Art Cen- ter and KCTM. A recording of the live perfor- mance will air on MSPR on Thurs- day, Jan. 2, at 8 p.m. The "Best of Americana Cross- roads Live, Volume 2" CD is now available in stores Featuring perfor- mances by the White Horse String Band, Homer Ledford, Irene Kelley, Russ Ward and The Corndrinkers, the recording contains more than a dozen of the latest concerts in the series.
