Everyone here will long remember Dec. 10, the day the 623rd Battalion--the first unit of the Kentucky National Guard to be called up for deployment to the Persian Gulf--left home. "They said it was a military secret but the word traveled word-of-mouth, and we had hundreds of people lining the streets carrying yellow ribbons and waving flags," Ninie Glasscock, managing editor of the Springfield Sun, recalls.

In the interest of public service, we feel compelled to report an alarming trend--skinny women ordering French fries for lunch. OK, so they don't really eat them.

"I'm just a girl from Kentucky," she explained over a recent lunch at the Buffalo Club in Santa Monica, not far from the office she shares with her uber-producer husband, Jerry Bruckheimer.

"Look at those big feet of yours. You're going to grow right into those feet and right off the back of a horse."

Sheets of plywood have been laid across sawhorses: Those are the picnic tables. The soft air is laced with the meaty aroma beckoning from the cavernous iron caldron suspended over a wood fire.
