Travel: Sand from up north


2015-08-01 - Siesta Key, FL - Photo by Pen. Some Gulf Coast sand isn't made up of the usual crushed shells and coral. According to locals, "a study of Siesta Key beach sand by Harvard University's geology department found that the sand was 99 percent pure quartz grains. Over millenniums, sand grains were carried by rivers from the southern Appalachian Mountains into the Gulf and down Florida's coast."

Better signage would help at Hurt & Jamestown Street

Commentary: Some don't realize they can use a turning lane to enter as well as exit by Columbia IGA. Driving While Discourteous hurts town. Use of turn signals at all time low, it seems, he writes. Peer Pressure can go a long way toward improving driver courtesies, keeping our town clean. And an important postscript on appreciation of Lindsey's Plant Operations' leadership.

Personal commentary

I have always used the turn lanes up by Columbia IGA to enter the road as well as exit.

I take it that's how they are meant to be used, I see a lot of drivers afraid to pull out to the turn lane when traffic to their left is clear but not clear to their right.

The Whitehurst Diaries: The Passing of July

"July in south-central Kentucky is all about heat and intense humidity. In the first summers here we learned to garden early in the morning, then to retreat inside, close the windows, draw the curtains, turn on fans or A/C. To step outside is to feel that one has been swathed and smothered in a hot steaming blanket." - SHARON WHITEHURST

I Could Do Without July

High summer has never been a favorite time. I have lived in three quite distinct areas in terms of climate--in all three, July weather is too hot. The greater part of my life was spent in Vermont's Champlain Valley, where the Green Mountains rim the eastern horizon, while the dark and rugged thrust of the Adirondack range looms on the New York side of the lake.
