Scenic Russell Co., KY: Big Rock Candy City Hall


2014-12-22 - 387 N Main Street, Russell Springs, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
The Russell Springs Municipal Center, housing City Hall, the Police Department, and Water Commission, is Red, white and green for the holiday season. The handsome, functional building with easy access, is a model of municipal efficiency - it cost a fraction of what other cities have spent, and it was another case where a government unit did the right thing, adaptively re-using an existing building rather than build-on or build anew.

BJF: Never wrestle a mountain lion - a great story

Nature (Kentucky Color) writer saw mountain lion on Salt Lick Bend in Cumberland County, KY, in 1988. Friend saw one in The Flatwoods. Beautiful creatures, he says.

By Bill Joe Fudge

Great story, Bill. I'm just now catching my breath. I saw one on Salt Lick Bend of the Cumberland River, South of Burkesville in 1988. A friend of mine saw one in the Flatwoods on the Stanley Reliford (Jimmy\'s home place) farm in the early 80's. He shot at it with a 22 magnum pistol but apparently did not hit it. Beautiful creatures. --

Regarding a little dog called bear spotted on Neat Hollow Road

Brenda Newton writes:
I saw a little lost dog matching your dog's description here in the Little Cake area a about 1/2 to1 mile past Neat Hollow Rd. He or She was in our yard and came on our porch like it was lost and wanted to come in. But I didn't know it was lost until I saw it in the picture and it was the same dog I saw. That was yesterday (Saturday) around 7pm and saw it today around 10am, but it was going toward the lower end of Little Cake Area. Sorry so long but trying to help get the little fellow back home. - Brenda Newton

Carol Perkins: Where are My Glasses?

It's a problem lots of folks over 50 have: Mashing the right buttons on the fiendishly complicated microwaves. For Guy Perkins of Edmonton, KY, a stay in a luxury hotel in Birmingham, running the microwave for his nightly fix of popcorn, without glasses, was futile, yielding no popcorn - but, as one would suspect, a great Carol Perkins column on his way home, with twist.

By Carol Perkins

Guy travels with his job so he most often will use Priceline for finding good deals on lodging. Most of the time he will end up in a Holiday Inn Express or an equivalent, but this time was a huge surprise. He would be staying at the Renaissance Resort at Ross Bridge in Birmingham.

Happy Tail - Christmas is coming!

And Christmas is about memories. Peg Schaeffer recalls early Christmases in Connecticut and how proud she was to get the 'mink' stole 1958, the tradition of cutting the family's own Christmas tree, the homemade ornaments, a dog named Elvis who OD'ed (or should have after eating 2 pounds of the stuff) on chocolate, Christmas Eves in church, the legend that animals can talk on Christmas Eve, and her favorite Christmas ornaments: The Nativity Scene
Click on headline for complete story with photo of Peg in her Christmas coat in 1958. Click on topic: Happy Tails, for previous Peg Schaeffer columns and find links to recent Happy Tails and news from Sugarfoot following full article.

By Peg Schaeffer

This week as I was packing the box of Chipís Christmas presents to send to him in Connecticut I got to thinking about past Christmasí. When I was a little girl we put the tree up on Christmas Eve. We would decorate it and then put the presents under the tree. Of course the presents from Santa Claus didnít come until I went to bed. We always went to church at midnight on Christmas Eve and it was something I always looked forward to.
