  • Snowbirds of a different feather

    Candy Clarke and Frank Rose are snowbirds of a rare feather.

    Their migration is more than 3,700 miles and, instead of terminating in a tropical locale, stretches south from North Pole, Alaska to Flat Creek Road in Henry County, Kentucky. They come in October and stay through March.

    It’s a long route and a long story.

    It began in the late ‘70s when Frank lost a bet to Candy. The native Kentuckians lived in Louisville with their young daughter, Samantha.
