JIM - Christmas Wish List, 14 Dec 1938

2017-12-14 - Between Creel Building & the Well Walk (Flower Garden to Monkey Business nowadays) - Photo from the collection of JIM.

December 1938 found America in the tenth year of the wearying Great Depression, and eighteen months into a severe recession-within-the-depression, although the recession had marginally loosened its grip. For Adair County families that were better off financially than many, the Community Public Service Co. offered Christmas pricing on a dazzling array of modern conveniences such as electric clocks, $2.95 & up; floor lamps, from $7.95; and radios, beginning at $14.95. For those better off still, the (nearly indestructible) Sunbeam Mixmaster could be put under the tree for $23.75; and for the really well-to-do, a Kelvinator refrigerator at $130 and up could bring a spot of holiday cheer 24/7.

For most, however, a pound of candy from the Baldwin Cash Market (stick, Christmas mix, and chocolate, mix or match at ten cents on the pound) and the children's items available at the Economy 5c & 10c store (located on the Square between the Creel building and the Well Walk) more realistically fit the family budget, but for some, even those items may as well have been priced in dollars rather than dimes and quarters.

The accompanying advertisement appeared in the December 14, 1938 edition of the Adair County News. - JIM

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

Another Adair County Civil War Story from the memory of one who was near the incident, Patrick Henry Bridgewater of Cane Valley, and his telling of the Battle of Tebb's Bend, but more importantly, the well-known Confederate Over-coat.
Gen. Morgan's Overcoat
How He Lost It at the Battle of Green River Bridge

Cane Valley, Ky., June 24, '98
About six years ago I had published in the Louisville Courier-Journal a sketch of the battle and the overcoat, in which I made some mistakes--not in the overcoat, but in the battle. So I herein correct the mistakes and request the editor of the Adair County News to republish it in its revised state.

Ryan Quarles asks Feds to take industrial hemp off list of drugs

"Industrial hemp was produced in Kentucky for some 150 years, and Kentucky led the nation in hemp production for much of that time. In the early 20th century, almost all the hemp produced in the United States was grown in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky. Congress outlawed cannabis production in the 1930s, and while hemp production was legalized in the early 1940s for the war effort, Kentucky's hemp industry disappeared after the war. Since 2014, Kentucky has been a national leader in industrial hemp research and production." Excerpt for complete article.

By Ted Sloan
News from the office of KY Ag Commissioner Ryan Quarles

FRANKFORT (December 13, 2017) -- Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles called on Congress to remove industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances under federal law and challenged the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) position on consumable hemp-derived products in remarks delivered today at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's (KDA) Industrial Hemp Advisory Board meeting.

"Missed photo opportunities of the Monday and Tuesday evening sunsets, so I decided to venture out to this area and see what the Wednesday sunset might provide.

Comment on discussion of funeral homes selling alcohol

Comment on Phil's comment:
Thank you, Phil. Your information makes the subject of getting the license to sell alcohol in the Indiana funeral home much more understandable. Here, however, with the City's brand new ordinance in progress, I believe there'd have to be a deceased in the house, else opening the funeral home's bar to the public would be illegal. (This is subject to City Attorney Marshall Loy's clarification until the last day of his retirement in progress, and after that, and if the local funeral homes were to get licensed, it will become a question for new City Attorney Dustin Warren.) --Linda Waggener
