etting out to see live music in Glasgow and Barren County can be a little difficult, unless youre good at picking and choosing. Theres no shortage of musical talent here, as well as plenty of showplaces and special events to hear it. In fact, theres probably something for just about every musical taste here, according to the folks who put on the shows and perform in them. Strings of Erin Making a name for themselves on the local folk and music scene, Strings of Erin comprises two talented sisters. My sister is a classically trained violinist, and I play the harp and sing and tell stories to music, says Katie Daniels, who along with sister Bethany make up the group. Bethany is concertmaster of the Bowling Green Youth Orchestra, and we also have performed at the Glasgow Musicale. There are a lot of opportunities here, and I think well continue to have a lot of chances to perform.

the show Goes on


opened in 1934, the Plaza theater started out playing the show The Cats Paw for the low admission price of 25 cents for adults and 10 cents for children. over the years, the Plaza has undergone several changes in ownership and physical appearance to continue offering a contemporary theatrical experience. in 2001, the city of Glasgow purchased the Plaza for $200,000 and renovated it with government grants, city funds and individual contributions. today, the Plaza presents events, either booking performances that will be successful or renting the venue to groups to produce their own shows. the Plaza also rents out its Marquee, dressing rooms, inner and outer lobbies, balcony and more.

Where fishermen flourish


barren river Lake is the perfect location for all kinds of aquatic activities as it encompasses more than 10,000 acres. barren river is home to several popular camping areas including baileys point, the narrows and tailwater. All three campgrounds offer amenities such as individual water and electrical hookups, playgrounds, volleyball areas and more. boating is another beloved activity on barren Lake as it offers boat ramps at all recreation areas including barren river Lake state resort park, peninsula Marina and walnut Creek Marina, to name a few. while camping and boating are popular, fishing is the most enjoyed activity thanks to the Lakes fishing piers and its variety of fish. Among these fish are striped bass, crappie, brim, largemouth bass, hybrid bass and numerous kinds of catfish.

Almanac

Embracing the Wild


Covering more than 180 acres next to the Barren River Reservoir, the Brigadoon state nature Preserve in Barren County offers visitors a natural retreat. the land donated for the Brigadoon state nature Preserve originally came from a land grant dating to the American Revolution, and the Preserve derives its name from a mythical scottish village that appears out of the mists once every hundred years. the Preserves unique origins are surpassed only by its natural wonder as it offers rich woodland scenery filled with numerous types of trees, more than 120 species of resident and migratory birds, a mile-long hiking trail through ridge tops and open ravines, and an array of spring wildflowers, many species of which are rare.

Working for a Better future


Established in 1880, the Ralph Bunche Community Center originally opened as a Barren County school unit. in 2005, the Glasgow Board of Education voted to sell the former school to the Liberty district Association, which transformed the school into the Ralph Bunche Community Center. the Center operates to educate and empower high-risk youth and at-risk adults through various means including mentoring, career consulting, academic tutoring, and behavioral and financial counseling for individuals and families. the center provides a safe and stimulating atmosphere for everyone in the community to enjoy recreational and educational activities that foster a greater appreciation for cultural diversity, intellectual achievement and active, healthy living.

Milking success
Glasgow is home to some of the finest dairy farms in the southeast. Among these farms, Kennys farmhouse Cheese and Bluegrass dairy and food, inc. stand distinct. Kennys farmhouse Cheese began in the 1990s out of Kenny Mattinglys concern that milk would decline in value as a commodity. summoning an entrepreneurial spirit, Mattingly decided to use the farms milk to produce cheese using handmade techniques. since the beginning of this venture in 1998, Kennys has gone from producing 4,000 pounds of Gouda annually to 70,000 pounds of a variety of cheeses today such as Colby, Asiago and Havarti. Bluegrass dairy and food inc. is a primary supplier of specialty ingredients to the food industry including cream powders, churned butters, butter powders and cheese powders. Bluegrasss extensive production capabilities enable it to produce ingredients with numerous physical characteristics. Bluegrasss commitment to quality has earned it numerous awards including tennessee Governor Phil Bredesens Award and Best in Class in the 2010 World Championship Cheese Contest.

Glasgow Big Band For more than a decade the communitys music lovers and performers have come together in the Glasgow Community Band, which performs on the square in downtown Glasgow, holds an annual Christmas concert at the Plaza Theatre, and puts on other performances as its members schedules allow, says Bill Brogan, the bands current director. We play for the Veterans Day banquet, and provide music for the ceremony downtown at the parade, Brogan says. Many band members are current or retired musicians as well as

current high school students who take top honors for their abilities. Theres also some crossover with the Barrens Big Band, which plays at retirement homes and various civic-group events. Were up to five doctors now, three attorneys, six band directors and some other teachers, so were an unusual bunch, Brogan says. Concert on the Square Classical music aficionados get their fill when the annual Concert on the Square brings well-known regional symphony orchestras to town for a concert on the Friday night before July 4. Begun in the

late 1990s, the concert has gotten so popular that it brings several thousand locals and visitors to town for what has become a summertime must-attend event, says Randy Edwards, who chaired the event from 2009 to 2011. Every year its just gotten to be more of a tradition for folks, Edwards says. We keep pretty strict guidelines about the music, which is light classical thats easily recognizable in the first half, and then patriotic for the second. The orchestras have been great to work with. And we try to add one or two new things every year just to keep it fresh.

George js on the Square Located in downtown Glasgow, George Js on the Square is known for hosting a variety of talented performers and musicians such as the Kentucky Ridge Runners, Steel Country Band and Jenny Lus Klassic Krew, to name a few. New owners Daniel and Angela Neukomm have plans to make the legendary local eatery a hub for entertainment, and are well along on their way to making that happen. We are endeavoring to become a regular nightspot, Daniel Neukomm says. Our goal is to have every Friday and Saturday

night full with a live band, and so far were booked up well into 2012. We will be featuring local bands, but also get some bands in from the Nashville area and elsewhere so we can bring in some outside talent as well. The Neukomms have built a stage and installed new sound and lighting, so look for George Js to become a touring stop for not only local talent, but regional and national up-and-comers as well.

hanks to Glasgows Regional Post-Secondary Education Center, area residents can count easy access to higher education as one of the many benefits of living in Barren County. Opened in 2002, the center houses satellite campuses for both Western Kentucky University (WKU) and Bowling Green Technical College (BGTC). Residents place a high value on our center because it truly does meet a need, says Dr. Sally Ray, director of WKU-Glasgow. feeding the Communitys Growth Both WKU and BGTC offer a variety of academic programs at the Glasgow location. Nursing, elementary education and agriculture are the most popular of WKU-Glasgows 20-plus degrees and certificates. BGTC-Glasgow students can earn a degree or certificate in one of eight industrial-maintenance fields, and the school offers custom training for local businesses. Thanks to a joint-admissions agreement signed in summer 2011, students also have the option to earn an associates degree with BGTC, then transfer to WKU to complete a bachelors degree. With so many options on the table, its no wonder that both campuses are seeing tremendous growth. Weve added several degree programs and recently expanded our evening course offerings, says Ron Baldwin, coordinating administrator for BGTCs Glasgow Technology Campus. To accommodate WKUGlasgows growth, Ray is adding

faculty positions and degree programs as well as food service for students. Both administrators attribute their schools growth to a reputation for personalized education. Our faculty genuinely care about students, Ray says. Theyre interested in whats going

on in students lives, and theyre approachable and helpful. The same holds true at BGTC. We make teaching and learning a top priority, Baldwin says. We have small class sizes and faculty and staff who are committed to student success. But the schools presence

doesnt just benefit students. WKU-Glasgow and the Glasgow Technology Campus are the primary pillars of economic development in our community, says Dan Iacconi, executive director of the Glasgow/Barren County Industrial Development Economic Authority (IDEA). They make the local environment more conducive for existing industries to expand and future industries to locate here. Leading outsourcer Sitel,

for example, opened its newest contact center near the campus in March 2010. The facility provides customer support for retailer Best Buy and employs more than 700 people. Many of those employees are students, but Sitel has also hired a number of people from the community at large. Sitel has helped to diversify our economy and provide employment for individuals who are looking for something other than traditional

manufacturing jobs, Iacconi says. For WKU-Glasgows Ray, its not surprising that the colleges presence would facilitate this kind of community-wide benefit. While were here primarily for our students, we also provide a connection to the community in terms of economic development, she says. Whether its offering educational opportunities or attracting new companies, a university provides tremendous benefits.

Existing industry is the

he slowly recovering national economy has made for challenging times in GlasgowBarren County, but thanks to economic development efforts, the future of the local economic scene is brightening. While the past several years brought layoffs and a few losses, new industries are locating in the area while existing businesses are expanding. We have been slowly coming back and we havent lost any of our major industries, says Dan Iacconi, executive director of the Glasgow/Barren County Industrial Development Economic Authority (IDEA). We have a lot of work to do, but were feeling very positive. Good Economic News in 2011 The area welcomed major successes in 2011, Iacconi says. In October, Fortis Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Canada-based Betatech Inc., announced plans for its first American manufacturing facility in Glasgow. The 80,000-square-foot plant in the Highland Glen Industrial Park is a $5 million investment that will bring 100 new jobs to the area. Akebono Brake Corporation planned a $20.6 million, 66,000-square-foot expansion of its manufacturing plant, adding 200-plus new jobs. Sitel, a call center, expanded its workforce to more than 700. AtCorr Packaging Products opened in Glasgow in 2011, bringing 10 new jobs. And Med-Care Pharmacy, a pharmaceuticals provider, moved its 100 employees to an expanded facility. The location is very convenient for us, in the medical community near the new loop road and T.J. Samson Hospital, which is growing, says Med-Care human resources manager Cindy Garrett. Were pleased with where we are. Barren County has very good prospects. Balancing Barrens Existing and New Businesses The key to growing the local economic base lies in serving the needs of existing businesses

backbone of our local economy.


while attracting new businesses, Iacconi says. Its critical to strike the right balance between the two, he says. Existing industry is the backbone of our local economy. What keeps existing businesses and newcomers alike happy is a combination of improved infrastructure, outstanding location and transportation, a well-trained workforce, education and the communitys health care including a community-owned hospital. We are centrally located within a days drive of half the nations population, Iacconi says. We have put in the Veterans Outer Loop, which will complete a large, four-lane corridor that encircles our entire area. We have cutting-edge industrial parks with 5- to 150-acre lots available, and warehousing facilities from 5,000 to 343,000 square feet. Education and Innovation Education is a critical part of the economic picture, Iacconi says. IDEA works closely with the Glasgow Regional Center, home to WKU-Glasgow and the Glasgow Technology Campus to meet the needs of area businesses. It also actively seeks to diversify the local economic picture with an eye toward agriculturerelated businesses, biomass and renewable energy, pharmaceuticals, and other high-tech industries. Innovation and creativity are what the world is about these days, Iacconi says. You must be able to out-innovate your competition.

the Chamber hosted its second annual south Central Kentucky Business Expo in february 2012. Located in the 24,000 squarefoot Cave City Convention Center, the event included keynote speakers, community leaders and representatives from more than 70 local businesses. the expo serves a number of different purposes, says Ernie Myers, executive vice president and chief operations officer for the Glasgow/Barren County Chamber.

it allows businesses to show themselves off to the public, but its also a business-tobusiness function.

agriculture in south central KentucKy


Building on the success of the business expo, Myers plans to add a regional agricultural expo by 2013. Agriculture is possibly the leading single business within the community, Myers says. We already have events such as dairy day and the Cattlemens festival, and we hope to consolidate and bring all these farmers together in one place, so they can show their wares and the public can better understand farming. Were in favor of anything the farmer does and try to support it highly.

Every two months, area businesses participate in the chambers small Business Roundtables, bringing business owners and community leaders together to share ideas and collaborate on future growth. small business programs and ribbon cuttings also are works of the chamber, and staff plan year round for community events including the taste of Barren County, ice cream socials, the Christmas parade, and the crowddrawing, bagpipe blaring fun of Highland Games and Celtic fest.

arts district oF glasgoW


in november 2011, a steering committee made up of business owners, community volunteers and representatives from the City of Glasgow, Plaza theatre and far off Broadway Players submitted an application to the Kentucky Arts Council to create a certified cultural district in Glasgow. Pending approval in 2012, the result will be the Arts doG (district of Glasgow), a state-recognized cultural district that will benefit from increased tourism marketing and economic activity.

Plaza theatre
Glasgows renowned Plaza theatre continues to impress visitors with its grand architecture and performances by national acts. Local performers and comedians also grace the stage of the Plaza theatre, and an active community theater group called the far off Broadway Players presents three productions there each year. the Plaza theatre first opened in 1934 and was restored to its original grandeur with a $1.8 million renovation that began in 2001. it reopened to a sold-out crowd for a Patty Loveless concert in 2005.
