The History of...
Did You Know?
Mammoth Cave is one of the oldest tourist attractions in North America. Tours of
Mammoth Cave have been offered since 1816.
Mammoth Cave - The Longest Cave
A unique combination of circumstances has made Mammoth Cave the longest cave in
the world, with more than three hundred and thirty five miles of mapped passages.
First, the karst setting has a large area for potential cave formation. The upstream
headwaters of Mammoth Cave are out under the sinkhole plain. Most of the passages
large enough for people to enter are under the escarpment, the plateau, and the flattopped ridges with their intervening valleys. Springs along the Green River are the
downstream outlets of ground rivers such as Echo and Roaring Rivers.
Mammoth Cave National Park is a U.S. National Park in central
Kentucky, encompassing portions of Mammoth Cave, the most elongated cave
system known in the world. The official name of the system is the Mammoth Cave
System, though it could be argued that it should be called the Flint-Mammoth-TooheyEudora-Joppa-Jim Lee Ridge Cave System—to account for the ridges under which the
cave has formed. The park was established as a national park on July 1, 1941. It
became a World Heritage Site on October 27, 1981, and an international Biosphere
Reserve on September 26, 1990. The park’s 52,830 acres (214 km²) are located in
Edmonson County, Kentucky, with small areas extending eastward into Hart County
and Barren County. It is centered around the Green River, with a tributary, the Nolin
River, feeding into the Green just inside the park. The Green River is dammed near the
western boundary of the park, so that the river only flows freely for a small section in
the eastern part of the park.
Almost two million people visit the park every year.
Each across clue leads to the surname of a well-known person, but it is that
person’s first name that is to be entered in the grid. The first letter-count refers
to the clue answer; the second to the grid entry. Down clues are normal.

Targets of Deception
by Jeffrey Stephens
Jordan Sandor had resigned
from active service with the
CIA before the tragedy of 9/11.
He reluctantly gets pulled back
into the game after a series of
alarming events leave him no
choice. He embarks on a search that takes him
halfway across the world; beginning in New
York, leads to Florida, on to Paris, and
ultimately to the sleepy town of Portofino on
the Italian Riviera - to uncover a deadly alQaeda plot to launch nerve gas attacks on the
world! Never sure who he can trust but
knowing that the lives of millions are at stake,
he relies on his gut instincts and trained skills
to help him track down the rogue agent behind
the conspiracy – who turns out to be none
other than his old mentor!
