Squirrel or old age causes Fortune St. power outage

2008-09-03 - East Fortune Street, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
Whether it was caused by a squirrel or old age is unsure, but the shattered lightning arrestor in the photo above caused a power outage for five homes and the Windstream telephone exchange for approximately an hour and a half on Tuesday, September 2, 2008. The telephone company was able to switch seamlessly to a diesel generator. A lineman for Kentucky Utilities fixed the situation from the ground using a 30 ft extension pole and power was restored. The shattered device was probably installed in the 1960s, he said. A Today's Picture Album photo, Wednesday, September 3, 2008

Thumper, 2 calicos available to good hoome

2008-09-03 - Photo From Bunch family album.

Three adult cat family to give to good home

Thumper is American Bobtail; Calicos Princess and Pokey think they are his Mom. If you can keep this family together, give Patty Bunch a call at (270) 384-9291
With one photo

By Patty Bunch

I have three adult cats to give to a good home. They are around 4 years old. I have two calico females and one American bottail gray/white male. All are outside "fixed" cats.

I have to keep them confined now since I have moved to a different house and sold the farm next door they used to know as home. These cats need to be in a milk barn or on someone's farm where they have freedom again to hunt and be cats. They are trained for a litterbox, but they are not used to the noises of inside and weren't happy indoors.

Princess, Pokey, and Thumper have been together since birth and I want them to stay together from now on, if humanly possible. Thumper is a year younger than the females and they treated him like their own kitten even though both have never had kittens.

Call me at (270) 384-9291 only if you are serious about owning three cats.
