Memphis to Big Creek, 1936: Mr. W.L. Grady's wild ride home

By JIM

In early March 1936, the Adair County News published a lengthy letter written by William Luther "W.L" Grady, then 74 and a well-known stock trader and horseman of the Gradyville section. This letter detailed Mr. Grady's recent trip to Texas with a full accounting of the myriad kith and kin with whom he and fellow sojourner Bruce Caldwell visited during their two-month stay in the Lone Star state.

All things come to an end, however, and so it was on the morning of Saturday, February 1st, 1936, he and Bruce, with the latter behind the wheel of a V-8 motor vehicle, pulled out of McGregor, Texas, a few miles outside of Waco and about 100 miles south of Fort Worth, heading north to Kentucky and the village of Gradyville, hard by the banks of Big Creek.

It's at this point we pick up Mr. Grady's travelogue. (Brownsville, Tennessee, mentioned herein, lies about 50 miles northeast of Memphis on modern-day US 79.) Wrote he:

Spears: Believe in yourself

By Gerard Flanagan

Dr. H. Keith Spears, interim president for Campbellsville University, asked at the first chapel of the semester September 1, 2021, "From where does your strength come?"

"If you search the scriptures, you will find there is a real good place to put your strength in," Spears said. "That's in the Lord. The Lord will help you. You can say, I'm having so many problems. We all do."

Spears also recited a Japanese proverb that says: "Fall seven times and stand up eight."

Phillip Coffey - Helpful

By Phillip Coffey
Hard rain sure is a-falling - Doofus taking the lying position.
Perhaps so should I but not yet - oft to weekly Bible study.
Sure a lot I do not understand about the well written 'Good Book'.
My thought is just do what you can - helping the 'Sisters and Brothers'.

Sure volumes of stuff from Genesis to often misunderstood Revelations.
Ever present Holy Spirit and well educated Bible scholars - most helpful.
Acknowledging God and his son, Jesus - never selfish or egotistic.
Gracious, reaching out to Christ - arduous efforts to helping one another.
