Tips on Christ in a Manger - by other names

Jon Halsey writes:
Try looking for "Night Blooming Cereus". The botanical name is: "Epiphyllum oxypetalum" I know some people refer to this as "Christ in the Manger" while others call it "Dutchman's Pipe". Another possibility and in the same family is Hylocereus undatus. This variety is sometimes referred to as "Jesus in the Cradle". Both are beautiful plants and I can see how they could share the common name the reader is looking for. - Jon Halsey

Birds of KY: Red-tailed Hawk, having supper


2014-09-17 - E Fortune Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. He was there, not 50 feet from our supper table enjoying a meal - a worrisome sight for us. There's a small kitten wandering our neighborhood we're worrying about now, and we hoped it hadn't become the raptor's meal. It was the first time we'd ever seen a red-tailed hawk (hope our ID is correct; see All About Birds/Red-tailed Hawk) this close. It seemed absolutely fearless while eating. Raps on the window pane barely got its attention. It seemed to take no notice at all when we opened the door for a clearer photo - in fact, it remained after 51 frames were slowly taken. We were relieved when the little kitten showed up, scampering by a low holly in the landscape at the front of the house, and guessed that the hawk's entree was a young rabbit - they're quite plentiful and healthy this season. We pondered whether the hawk might be useful for groundhog patrol; and whether, as owls seem wont to do, the hawk and his ilk might attack humans. - Ed Waggener

Dr. George Herring at CU for 50th anniversary of Vietnam War

Campbellsville University commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War September 23, 2014, at KHIPP event. 'The Vietnam War was a pivotal event in the history of the United States in the modern era,' John Chowning, vice president for church and external relations and executive assistant to the president, said. 'The war was predicated on the containment of communism and resulted in a major political and military crisis for the nation. The politics of the 1970s and 1980s was driven by the post-Vietnam fallout, and the treatment of the veterans of the Vietnam War by our own people remains a travesty for our nation'
