Little white dog wandering Haven Hill to Cloverport Estates

2015-06-30 - 1200 block, Liberty Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Alan W. Reed. Small dog apparently lost - Finally was able to her to pause for a photo. This small female dog is wearing a collar and has spent yesterday and today wandering back and forth between Haven Hill Cemetery and Cloverport Estates. There is a good chance the dog has been "spooked" by the recent storms since none of us have been able to get closer to her than about 50 feet. In an attempt to buy time for the owner or animal control officer, concerned Cloverport residents are attempting to help the small dog back across KY 206, one of the busiest roads in Adair County. It had taken up temporary residence near the end of Creekport Drive and at Bob White's home near the junction of KY 206 (Liberty Road) and Cloverport Drive. - ALAN W. REED

2015-06-30 - W. Frazier Avenue, Columbia, KY - Photo by Thomas Rayburn.
My kids recently adopted a stray dog and fell in love with her. She somehow managed to get out of our fenced in back yard on West Frazier right in town. My little ones are devastated. She is a young black pup with white and brown markings on her legs an chest like a Rottweiler, but built like a lab; she has a white stripe up her face and blue eyes that almost look white.

Time to rethink Ralph Waggener's low dollar Eastern bypass?

A solution suggested over two decades ago would really help now.

By Ed Waggener
Personal Commentary

In the early days of Columbia! Magazine, the print version, we ran a story about the bypass need for Adair County.

It was obvious then, it is obvious now, that the the most important bypass remains the lowest cost one of all - the bit over 2 miles of Parkway from KY 55/KY 551 to approximately the 51-52 mile marker on the Louie B. Nunn Parkway east of Columbia. At the time, the Kentucky Highway Department estimated that it would carry 60% of the traffic then fed onto the Public Square, versus the 40% headed west.

Kentucky Clouds: 29 Jun 2015 - Impending storm - III

2015-06-30 - From Lindsey Hill, Columbia, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag.
This cloud scene is my favorite of the three in this 29 Jun 2015 collection. It not only allows great moments of imagining - one can construe a fluffy Unicorn Cat in Hissing Mode in the lower gray storm cloud - but also the photographer's trademark sky blues. The cloud captures are surely worth an exhibit in a local art gallery or museum. - Ed Waggener
