Brownsville florist has deep roots
For 17 years, he worked at Holley Performance Products in Bowling Green but decided to change jobs when his daughter Autumn was born in 1981.“My wife wanted to be a stay-at-home mom,” he said. “At first I actually mowed yards for extra money but then one day, I guess I had a brainstorm and thought, ‘Well I used to do flowers. I can still do that.’ ”Despite initial fears that he wouldn’t be able to compete with the three existing flower shops in Brownsville, within two years Madison’s business grew too big for his porch to sustain, requiring him to move to a larger home in Brownsville where he ran the shop out of a two-car garage.Moody died in 1990 and, a few years later, Madison bought her business and renamed his store Madison’s and Marguerite’s Flowers in her honor.Trevor Madison, Anthony’s son, has traveled far and wide with the Peace Corps and has done farm work on homesteads in North Carolina and California but sometimes finds himself back in his hometown.Typically, when he’s back in Brownsville, he works at his father’s store.“I really am not rooted anywhere and I consistently find myself back in my hometown with my family,” he said.Trevor, now 32, said he’s been working at Madison’s and Marguerite’s off and on since he was 18.“I just grew up around it, and it became second nature to me when I started at it,” he said.Growing up, Trevor would often go on flower deliveries and help out at the store, he said.Tasked with building a mixed flower bouquet Wednesday, Trevor started with a rose in the center and expanded outward from there, scattering other flowers – such as carnations, goldrenrod and purple and yellow daisies – around the rose that stayed in the middle of the display.“For me, the arrangement sort of makes itself,” he said. “The less I think about it, the better it’ll turn out.”Anthony, after filling a separate vase with greenery, arranged a dozen roses and filled in with hypernicum berries and Alas...

Former POW to celebrate 100th birthday
Bowling Green's Jimmie Stewart turns 100 on June 5; he lives with his wife of 68 years, Ruth, in their Warren County home. Seven decades ago, he was a prisoner of war in Germany. Seeking to document his time at the POW camp, Stewart compiled a unique journal/scrapbook that brings to life what conditions were like for the approximately 120,000 American soldiers captured by Axis forces in World War II.
• • •
Stewart's family is from Evansville, Ind. When he was about 5, they moved to Bowling Green where they operated a butcher shop on College Street. When he was 21, he started managing the unique nightclub inside Lost River Cave. Orchestra leader and fellow Kentuckian Billy Vaughn is among the famous performers Stewart remembers meeting at the venue.
In 1941, the world war raging across continents led him to be drafted into the U.S. Army. After basic training in Macon, Ga., he was shipped off to Belfast, Ireland, in 1942 and then to the front lines in north Africa later that year.
