Galbraith, Louis Gatewood

Galbraith, Louis Gatewood, 64, beloved father, grandfather, attorney and civil rights advocate, died peacefully at his home with family on Wednesday, Jan 4, 2012. Born in Carlisle, KY, he was the son of the late Henry Clay and Dollie Eliza Gatewood Galbraith. He was a former Marine, a graduate of the University of Kentucky, and the University of Kentucky College of Law. He was a humanitarian, friend, and author – who worked tirelessly for the people of Kentucky.

He is survived by his three daughters, Summer Galbraith Sears (Kate), Dunedin, New Zealand; Abby Sears Galbraith (Ryan Moldt); and Molly Galbraith, both of Lexington. He is also survived his two grandchildren, Connor Gatewood Moldt and Ella Grace Middleton Sears; his siblings, Don Lynam, Liz Whitehorn (Ken), Edna Hancock (Terrell), Hank Galbraith (Judy), Mike Galbraith (Julie), all of Lexington, Tim Galbraith (LuAnn) of Louisville; his former wife and the mother of his children, Susan C. Sears; his lifelong friend, Kim Eisner; and a host of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister, Judy G. Lynam.

The visitation for family and very close friends will be held between 4-8 PM on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at the Crown Plaza Campbell House, in the Colonial Ballroom. Parking is available at the rear of the Crown Plaza Campbell House. There will be a public gathering and a celebration of his extraordinary life — the location, date and time to be announced by his family. Milward-Broadway is in charge of arrangements.

    Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty Why abolish the death penalty in Kentucky?

    It's costly.
    It's out of step with modern thinking.
    It's risky.
    It's unfair, broken, and arbitrary.
    It's unnecessary.
    Victims' families deserve better.

  • Kentucky, “Dark and Dangerous Ground”

    The Dark and Bloody Ground

    The popular belief that the name Kentucky means "Dark and Bloody Ground" is apparently without foundation. Yet through the years, the image has persisted in literary and oral tradition as a description of the Kentucky country.

    One traditional explanation sites Delaware legend in which the ancient tribe of the Lenni-Lanape allied with the Iroquois to fight the Allegewi, the original inhabitants of Kentucky. In a single bloody battle the Allegewi were virtually exterminated. The land where an entire nation had been eradicated became known as the "dark and bloody ground". The violent clashes between the Iroquois and the southern Indians only helped reinforce the image.

    In his book, "Historical Sketches of Kentucky" (1874), Richard H. Collins says that a northern Indian once asked Indian fighter Joseph H. Daveiss how white men could live in land that had seen so much bloodshed. The Indian said that the ghosts of those killed in the Indian wars haunted the land making it dangerous.

    At the execution of the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals the Cherokee Cheif Dragging Canoe is said to have told Col. Richard Henderson that the lands south of the Kentucky river were "bloody ground"and would be "dark and difficult to settle". However Ruben T. Durrett said in his book, "The Centenary of Kentucky"(1892) that the phrase was used to discourage Henderson from purchasing the land.

  • Our Environment

    Toxic chemicals in our environment, such as mercury, lead, and certain manmade chemicals, have been linked to cancer, birth defects and brain impairments. Reducing or eliminating the load of these dangerous chemicals in the products we buy, the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink can help reduce the toll of human disease and suffering.

  • PLEASE DO NOT USE!

    PLEASE DO NOT USE SO CALLED "SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA" OR "SPICE" SOLD UNDER AN EVER INCREASING VARIETY OF NAMES! IT IS NOT MARIJUANA AT ALL AND I AM INSULTED THAT THE WORDS SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA ARE USED TO DESCRIBE THESE SUBSTANCES! "FAKE DRUGS" WOULD SUFFICE! THEY KILL! PLEASE COPY AND OPEN THE LINK BELOW TO READ ONE STORY ABOUT THESE "FAKE DRUGS"! http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/60e0b41dcfeb4c8896f89c4a7409dc99/KY--Synthetic-Drugs/ PARENTS, WATCH YOUR CHILDREN! BETTER TO OFFER THEM THE REAL THING THAN TAKE A CHANCE ON THEM GETTING A HOLD OF SUCH GOD-AWFUL SUBSTANCES! "...Officials said the powdery substance sold as bath salts mimic the effects of cocaine, ecstasy and LSD. It can be snorted, injected or mixed with drinks for food. The chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates, violent behavior and suicidal thoughts. Synthetic marijuana contains organic leaves coated with chemicals that provide a marijuana-like high when smoked. The product is marketed under various brands include Spice and K2. The synthetic drugs can be purchased on the Internet and in some tobacco and smoke shops, drug paraphernalia shops, gas stations and convenience stores..." OF NOTE: THESE PRODUCTS ARE MOST OFTEN USED BY THOSE WHO ARE FORCED TO SUBMIT TO "DRUG TESTIING".... THAT IS WHY THAT THEY HAVE BECOME SO POPULAR ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT THEY ARE READILY AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO MINORS - OR SOMEONE WHO WOULD PURCHASE FOR A MINOR. THIS HAS TO STOP!
