An upside down snow? Melting from the ground up

2018-03-21 - Downtown Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
In all my years I've yet to see a snow like this one, with the ground mostly visible while every limb and rooftop above the ground is completely snow covered. I really didn't want to distract from Sharon Whitehurst's pictures of wonderful Willis the Cat basking in the warm sunshine, nor Wayne Baxter's perfect Daffodils surrounded by pure Kentucky countryside, however, this interesting snow style did beg to be noticed and marked down. - LW

The Whitehurst Diaries: Gardening with Willis

Willis, like Alice's Cheshire Cat, has a way of soundlessly appearing whenever I settle to gardening . . . Whatever I decide to attempt in this season's garden, I can be assured I will have a companion: the exasperating but ever-faithful Willis.- SHARON WHITEHURST
Click on headline for complete diary entry with photos - may with at least one of the area's most famoous cat

By Sharon Whitehurst

There was a day last week when the sun shone. Daylight came softly, the air was cool, the sky pearl colored.

A pair of mourning doves sailed onto the bleached grass beyond the side porch, leaned close together as though in intimate conversation; cardinals flashed through the scrubby trees beyond the gravel drive, the sudden drumming of a woodpecker reverberated from farther up the ridge.

Defense Dog protects Russell County territory

2018-03-21 - Russell County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Mom - Mema - Geniece Leftwich Marcum, rides with us, though it's been a year since her passing. She was animal lover No. 1 in our lives. Hardly ever met a dog she didn't like, and she would have loved this one. Her first response would have been that he was in great need. That we should go back to Russell Springs and buy it one of the hamburgers she likes. Then she would have wondered if its owners had lost it, if we should call 9-1-1 - or pick it up. But we knew, looking into those stern eyes that the dog was just protecting its neighborhood, and doing a darn good job. We weren't about to contradict the dog in any way, and eased around past it's position, envious of its family. - EW/LW

Willis: Takes over the sidewalk

2018-03-21 - Sanders Ridge, Pellyton, KY - Photo by Sharon Whitehurst.
"I weeded until I was along-side Willis and mildly tendered a suggestion that he move to another section of the walk so I could continue working. In response Willis rolled onto his back, then appeared to subside at the edge of the walk. I edged tentatively into the space beside him only to be smacked by a swift right hook. I sputtered indignantly; Willis glared through a slitted eye, then calmly resettled himself, blocking my way." - SHARON WHITEHURST

Driving around the square: City Council might pass a law . . .

PERSONAL COMMENTARY - 1) A change in driver behavior 2) Consideration of a new City Ordinance on use of cell phones

By Joyce Coomer

The courthouse has been in that location for more than 200 years. The additions have been there since the 1970's or so. (Need to check date on that.) I was taught there was only ONE lane of traffic around the square, not two as some people think and that lane is wide to allow for tractor-trailers.

I don't know what the current problem is with yield signs as they've been in those locations for years but I have a sneaking suspicion is is a very common problem -- drivers utilizing mobile communication devices and drivers unaccustomed to the traffic patterns in Columbia trying to rely on a GPS unit for directions instead of paying attention to their driving.

How about the city council passing a "no electronic communication device, no GPS use inside the city limits" regulation, with the exception of emergency personnel -- only while on an emergency run of some sort, I might add. I know this would infringe on some people's addiction to cell phones but as Columbia isn't the size of New York City, that infringement wouldn't last very long.
