And this... is the famous Logan County education system at work. The only 2 famous people from Russellville are the 4 people "To Be Honest" listed.

Funny I never heard of Jordan Allen prior to his crap storm on this forum. He sure as heck isn't famous in any where but here.

Jim Bowie, inventor of the Bowie Knife, was born in Logan County on April 10, 1796 and died on March 6, 1836 at the Alamo in San Antonio Texas. I dare say there is an educated American alive who does not know who Jim Bowie is! There for, Jim Bowie would be the most well know/famous Logan Countian. Most people in the US have know idea who Terry Wilcutt is only Logan Countians know him out of our desporation to know some one, anyone who is some what "famous". Not to take anything away from Mr. Wilcutt for he is a good man who has accomplished much in his life.
Just sayin

I just saw a big article in WKU's Spirit magazine about Terry Wilcutt. So I think he is more known than Teacher gives him credit for.

Again that is mostly local. If you ask someone in California or New York or Florida or even Georgia who he is most would not have a clue...Ask the same question about Jim Bowie and most would have a good idea who he is. Again I do not mean to take anything away from Wilcutt just do not think he is the most famous Logan countian.

Yes but we dont live in Cali or New York...we live in Kentucky! And im sure there are plenty of people unaware of what a bowie knife is due to the fact we no longer are forced to use them on a daily basis for food. lol Especially people from Cali or new York...they are to busy holding their lattes to care lol

Terry Wilcutt and Jordan Allen.

Those characters that you have been naming,( Bowie and Cage) no one outside the County knows them but anyone outside LC can tell you who Terry Wilcutt and Jordan Allen are.( They are both famous and they are both related)

Terry Wilcutt is a astronaut graduated from WKU and Jordan Allen is a actor/Illusionist who is currently attending Murray State.
Both have their roots from the same family
(Coursey family from Lewisburg).
