During his three terms as State's Attorney Dr. Olsen prosecuted many criminals, and he was elected president of the State's Attorney's Association. He was later elected president of the Alabama Federal Bar Association, President of the Arizona Federal Bar Association, and national secretary of the Association of Federal Investigators. As Attorney-Advisor General with the U. S. Air Force Dr. Olsen was named the Civil Servant of the Year at Ellsworth AFB. He was instrumental in closing a road that ran through a nuclear warhead storage area so civilians would be unable to access it. The north half of Ellsworth AFB is located in Mead County. One of the Missile Control centers is located next to his grandfather's ranch where Dr. Olsen was born in the log cabin. Dr. Olsen invited the Mead County Commissioners to meet at the Officers Club on the base. In turn, Dr. Olsen, General Neeley, the Aerospace Division Commander, Col. Cordingly, the Staff Judge Advocate, and Col. Petrul, the Base Commander were invited to a steak fry at a cabin in the woods owned by the State Senator from Mead County. After the Shuttle Challenger explosion, Dr. Olsen reviewed the contract for the Solid Rocket Booster, and found that the contract specifications for the "O" rings required that they perform normally at temperatures down to 40 degrees below zero. It therefore appears that either the "O" rings were not manufactured in accordance with the contract specifications, or there was sabotage. While conducting and supervising investigations at the Johnson Space Center, Dr. Olsen was involved in a shooting at his motel. There were no injuries, but Dr. Olsen's rental car had 3 or 4 bullet holes. Just before the start of a Federal criminal trial of a lady accused of stealing gold salvaged from surplus rocket engines, a key witness was found murdered. The U. S. Attorney refused to get involved, saying that murder was a state offense. Dr. Olsen could not convince him that he could charge her with tampering with a federal witness.

Mr. Howells' father, who was a Welshman, moved to a property on the Little Miami River in southern Ohio to take charge of a sawmill and gristmill and superintend their transformation into paper-mills. Mr. Howells describes a year of this life in a half-settled country, and tells how perfectly happy he was in his home-life and how intensely he suffered from homesickness when obliged to leave his mother to help earn money for a large family. Somehow or other, when Mr. Howells writes ff his boyhood, there is always a tinge of sadness about him. With his love for the comrades of his youth there breathe, as it were, notes of sorrow because they are no longer of the earth. Mr. Howells's emotional instincts in his younger days may not have been at the surface, but were certainly deep in his heart. Nothing he ever wrote can be more tender than the reminiscences of this year spent in a log cabin somewhere in Ohio.

Born in 1935 in a log cabin, left-handed Jack Boswell taught himself to play the piano in high school, reaching over to play the melody with his left hand, while playing the bass rhythm and chords with his right. Within two weeks he could play by ear any tune requested of him, and his cross-handed piano style became legendary. Jack's career in country music spanned over thirty years and was followed by a country gospel music ministry that covered another twenty-seven years. His band, The Country Starliters, served as the warm-up band for many Nashville headliners, an experience that not only afforded him the opportunity to build friendships with these stars, but also provided years of priceless memories. By the time he entered the gates of Heaven in 2011, Jack had performed with nineteen artists who are now enshrined in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
