Earlene Williams began her business in 1987 after family and friends encouraged her to turn her hobby into a career. "I don't re- member a time when I wasn't drawing something - a pet, a family member, scenes from the newspaper or a magazine," explained Earlene., A graphite pencil became her choice of in- strument to use in part because "pencils were always available and paint wasn't."

She's also starting to have more requests for portraits of grand- parents and grandchildren to- gether, or portraits featuring the family pet.

II McCANDLESS HOUSE continued from page A 1 cal therapy clinic while preserving an his- toric Munfordville Landmark. "Our desire is to preserve our culture. It's one of the last big houses left in Hart County," Dr. Middleton pointed out. HISTORY The McCandless House was built around 1835. The builder is unknown. The second owners were Francis Asbury Smith and Louise Thomas Smith. Francis owned a local general merchan- dise store and a meat packing plant. Dur- ing the Civil War the house was occupied by senior officers of both the Union and Confederate armies. Confederate General Braxton Bragg lived in the house after the Battle of Munfordville and Union General Don Carlos Buell is said to have occupied the house as his headquarters while prepar- ing for the advance south. John Hunt Morgan is also said to have used a room in the house for an office. In 1889 Smith Family moved to Mis- souri and around 1900 the house was pur- chased by Judge D.A. McCandless. He spent about $5,000 "modernizing" the Smith Home. He built the concrete and tile front porch and added hardwood flooring. The house was noted at the time for the Corinthian porch columns and rounded front doorway. It is considered a great ex- ample of the Kentucky frontier style. RESTORATION Restoration of the house will include the addition of bathrooms and showers, A new stairwell, and glass porches among other things. Walls and floors will be repaired along with structural repairs, mortar and concrete repairs and trim and window repairs. Architect for the project is Ed Krebbs, who is with K. Norman Berry Associates Architects, Louisville. The Medical Cen- ter has applied for Kentucky and Federal tax credits for restoring an historic property and this is a complicated effort. The ar- chitectural firm was chosen for its exper- tise in this process. The Kentucky Heritage Council has also been consulted during the project. Kerley Construction Company, Glasgow, which has done the work on the Medical Center is the contractor. SERVICES The primary focus will be physical ther- apy and all of these services will move to the new facility. Plans are to hire a second : physical therapist, additional support staff ~and add equipment. ........ Wellness services will complement the physical therapy and encourage people to become more active. The facility will in- clude enough gym space for pubic access to the Wellness Center activities. Some ', of the proposed group classes, according to Administrator Marrese, are Adult Yoga, Kids Yoga, Spinning, Pilates, a Silver Sneaker Program, Zumba, Body Sculpting and Weight Loss programs. Equipment envisioned at this time in- clude treadmiJls, elliptical machines, exer- cise bikes, free weights, rowing machines, resistance equipment and group exercise equipment. Proposed hours of operation and mem- bership options have also been tentativelY discussed. The estimated completion date for the facility to be operational is November/De- cember 2013, "If we can save this building and get our folks moving it's a huge success," Dr. Middleton concluded.
