Globe, KY

Between the metropoli of Olive Hill and Morehead, there is and always has been Globe. If you are the town’s main road (U.S.60) at early rush hour, it is three miles of constant traffic. If you are a side road off the main road, it is just-skedaddled deer and red bud-cluttered hollows. Eighty-eight-year-old Claude “Hawkeye” Erwin has spent a lifetime — save the time he spent on a Navy ship during World War II — on this mildly populated stretch of earth. It is earth he has hunted, earth he has dug, earth he inherited and earth he has bought and paid for. “This place has everything,” he says. It always has.
