that showed up this morning on Columbia Magazine
thoughts of the past came softly to me
a time way back when i was a teen
After a night at the teen center
behind Durham Wholesale
we'd head to the cemetary
to see who would prevail
At a game of hide and seek
that we often would play
it was at the time
the ending of a near perfect day
We were just kids with little else to do
as we played til way into the night
the graveyard became a gathering place
where often at times we would playfully fight
Never once did we think
of doing the graveyard any harm
for though we were young we always knew
it was a place that held special charm
Driver's licenses came and put an end to all that
we now had much better things to do
so then to us the graveyard became
a shortcut and something we just drove through

Trail Town Initiative and photo in want of a poem|
2014-03-13 - Columbia City Cemetery, 315 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. It's fascinating scene, one of an endless number in the Columbia City Cemetery. And it ties into the the whole concept of Trail Towns. Two members of the Columbia Cemetery Commission, Lee Ann Jessie and Linda Waggener, have commented on the growing number of people who chose to regularly walk here for exercise and peace of mind. The old barn above and the quiet residential scene in the background are a favorite of those who regularly walk to the cemetery and spend 20-30 minutes there each day. It's already here. Little or no money needs to be spent to see it utilized more. Trail Town is a multi-faceted program which can touch almost every interest, from hiking/biking/running/walking, to horseback riding, canoeing, hunting/fishing, and specialty trails: History, ethnic interests, progress meals routes, art and photograph trails, bird and wildlife watching, tree trails, special villages trails, old school and church trails - there seem to be no limits. There will be a meeting of the Columbia/Adair Trail Town initiative this evening in the basement of Dr. J.C. Salato Building/Adair County Health Department Building, 801 Westlake Drive, Columbia, KY, at 6pmCT to hear Elaine Wilson speak on the subject. (Trail Town meeting with Elaine Wilson, speaker) Organizers are hoping for input those in city and county governments, candidate ideas, preventive medicine advocates, ministers and church groups, the hospital, parks & rec, and public and higher education groups, and civic organizations. (The Columbia Rotary is already "enrolled."). - ED WAGGENER
