  • When some local residents were trying to organize a public library back in the 1970s, Beulah Wesley literally wore holes in the soles of three pairs of shoes as she went door-to-door, asking residents to sign the library petition.

    Jan Banks, the first and only head librarian hired for the Casey County Public Library, remembers “Ms. Beulah” telling the story often.

    “She said she wore out three pairs of shoes getting signatures for the library because she thought the county really needed one,” Banks said.

  • Glenn Holt honed his barbering skills giving free haircuts to the living and the dead in the embalming room at the McKinney-Brown Funeral Home in Liberty.
