Kentucky Color: Pa Fudge's Family ca. 1932 or '33


Pa Fudge's family was getting along famously
during Great Depression, in Toria, Adair County, KY

Click on photo for complete story, then scroll down for full sized photo

By Billy Joe Fudge, President, Homeplace on Green River

The Great Depression had a devastating effect upon the worldwide economy during the 1930's. However, by looking at this picture of my Pa Fudge's family of Toria Kentucky taken around 1932 or `33, it appears that they might have been getting along famously.

I'm no fashion expert but Aunt Isly on the left, seems to be wearing much more than a feed sack dress with bows on the sleeves. Aunt Eula on the right in her usual stylish self, along with Ma Fudge, appeared to be rocking some low heels.

WalletHub2018's Best Big Cities to Live In

Nearby Big Cities rank high. How would you rank: Columbus (Ohio), Lexington, Louisville, Indianapolis and Nashville?
Source: WalletHub

By Adam McCann, Financial Writer

Many Americans prefer to live in rural areas, but far more call cities their homes. Though urban settings are less than 3 percent of the U.S. landmass, they contain around 80 percent of the total U.S. population. There are many factors that make highly-populated areas great to live in. Big cities represent opportunity, economic and otherwise, which appeals to people of all walks of life Ė especially young professionals seeking advancement in their careers and social lives. Another main draw is easy access to diverse dining and entertainment options that are comparatively scarce in more rural settings. But big-city life requires tradeoffs, too. Higher cost of living is a concern, along with pollution, traffic delays and limited living space. Each major U.S. city has a unique set of issues, to go along with its own character and charm. However, some big cities tackle their problems and emphasize their strengths more efficiently than others. To help readers find the best big city to call home, WalletHub compared the 62 largest U.S. cities based on 56 key indicators of attractiveness. Our data set ranges from the quality of public schools and life expectancy to job opportunities and property taxes.

James Roberts: It's owners' responsibility to lock vehicles

Next earlier comment, this issue: -Jon Halsey chimes in support of Mr. Marshburn, re: crime issue

By James Roberts
Personal commentary

Law enforcement cannot protect individualís vehicles who leave them unlocked or even locked with valuables inside. It is the vehicle ownerís responsibility to take care of their own property. A vehicle is not a secure place to leave valuables in the first place. It takes very little effort to break a window glass to gain access and even less effort when left unlocked. We donít live in a time anymore where people can leave vehicles, homes & places of businessís unlocked like we were all used to growing up. Thanks, - James Roberts.

Jon Halsey chimes in support of Mr. Marshburn, re: crime issue

Comments re article 98557 Charles Marshburn comments on wave of car breakins

Jon Halsey writes:
In defense of Mr. Marshburn, Merriam-Webster defines a crime wave as: "a sudden increase in the amount of crime in an area." So either 18 cars broken into in three days is standard in Columbia or it would seem to fit the definition of a crime wave. If I lived in Columbia, I would definitely hope it is the latter. - Jon Halsey
Thanks - No argument - just that using the term, though correct, is alarmist - and this is time for level heads to be alert, and not fall into the notion that the first answer for ever problem to use use every incident as a basis to tax-and-spend.

Fishing Elkhorn Creek: Compleat Angler Depleating the Stream


2018-07-22 - Elkhorn Creek, Franklin County, KY - Photo by Pen.
The quiet scene is a bit deceptive. The stream is so popular with kayakers that it is sometimes tough for a diligent, ambitious young competitive Collins Titan fishing team member to get in all the practice he needs. Evan wasn't as excited about the outside possibility that he might compete in the Cabela National Fishing Tournament in 2020 as we'd expected. He's getting expert inside tips from his cousin Blake Cowan, but worries that any tournament on smaller lakes may "pressure" the lake, depleting it of fish the rest of the season. In Elkhorn Creek, he's in no danger of pressuring, or overfishing, the stream, as, he reasons, the kayakers make it more difficult to catch the abundantly stocked stream. - Granddad, Ed Waggener
