Local inventor Larry Smith illustrate his The Real Coffee Cup Amplifier

2017-06-24 - Farmer\\\'s Market on the Square, Merchant & Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, photo(c).
Larry Smith, who maintains a collection of radio artifacts, demonstrated a working model of his coffee cup telephone amplifier. This was live streaming Shoreline Communications latest acquisition, WDKO, Liberty, KY using a FM2 coffee cup. His extensive research so far with many cups is that the biggest McDonald's cup gives maximum surge in volume. The amplifier idea comes with a caveat: The cup must be dry, both for maximum sound, and because most or all cellphones aren't hot coffee immersible. Larry Smith is the voice of FM 99.99 the Big Dawg; and today, the Oldies DJ for sister station WAVE, 92.7 FM, Russell Springs/Columbia. - EW

Russell Co., KY: High water in lakes making for unusual art

2017-06-24 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, photo(c).
Heavy rains have given us many gifts this season, like this lakeside art at Pleasant Hill dock in Russell County recently. Composing the photo, I was reminded of my lovely mother-in-law, Audrey Chelf Waggener, who asked me once if anything had ever scared me so badly I couldn't stand to talk about it for weeks? What had scared her like that? She had attended a family event at the lake and when she stepped up to get on the houseboat, her foot slipped and she headed down toward the dark water. She was rescued before falling fully into the water but the effect of the possibility left her shaken for quite a while. -- LW
