Stanley Epperson, a grandson of Eld. Z.T. Williams and the youngest of the trio named, was just short of 20. Later that year he married Cary L. Feese and for a number of years in the '20s and '30s, he operated the Corner Grocery in the Creel building at Campbellsville Street and the Public Square. After that, he was the proprietor of Epp's Place, a restaurant and pool hall where beer was served; it was in the east corner of the square. After Adair County voted itself dry again in 1937, he and Cary moved to Louisville, where he died in 1945.

Ellen Zornes: The Canada Geese flights are morning and evening

She loves to hear them, but not so her dog, Lucy

Ellen Zornes writes:
The Canada Geese fly over our house each morning and each evening. When Lucy was a puppy being potty trained, she was scared to death of them. I had to try to time her training times when the geese were not flying over or seen at the ponds around us. Canada Geese mate for life and we heard the most mournful sounds a couple of years ago when one of them had lost its mate. It didn't fly away when the flock did, but waited there several days before it rejoined the flock. We all felt so sorry for the goose! They are beautiful and unlike Lucy, I love to hear their honking as they fly overhead! - Ellen Zornes

Hi, Ed. If you'll look at this picture of cat tracks in the snow, you'll see how the paw impression displaces and concentrates snow into a doughnut shape. When the snow starts to melt, the fluffy, un-compacted snow melts away before the denser areas, leaving the circles you see. If you Google small animal tracks in snow you will find images with the circles. I can't link a url here. -Darryl Smith, cat tracker
