Colors of fall 2017

2017-10-20 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Fall colors are among the most beautiful, even though I think my favorite season is spring. These blueish purple petunias make a perfect contrast for the yellow mums.

Waiting for the fog to lift before the fishing can begin

2017-10-20 - Russell County, KY - Photo by Blake Cowan.
"Waiting on the fog to burn off," is how this young award-winning fisherman described his early morning photo. The boats filled with anticipating fishermen parked under the shroud of fog on Lake Cumberland tell the story of how much they must love the sport and the tournaments they continue to enter. We've had many fishermen in the family, but never have I known one with the passion of Blake Cowan. - Linda Waggener

Great Literature at ACPL lends detail for Squarecrow # 32

2017-10-20 - Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Even before super hero Captain Underpants was immortalized by Ryder Piralta's Squarecrow #32, he had at least a cult following of readers at the Adair County Public Library, as evidenced by this well worn, dog-eared copy. The epic novel may never eclipse "A Confederacy of Dunces," as the greatest American work of literature, but it's up there. Underpants devotees are amazed at how lifelike Piralta's creation is. Parents and grandparents can be assured that kids' interest in Capt. Underpants is not misguided. In the introduction, the creators recall that they were "responsible boys," as students, saying, "any time something bad happened in school, "we were responsible." Ryder, it is reported by his grandmother, may make time in his schedule for a photo with his creation before it comes down after Halloween Treats on the Town, we aren't sure. He is the grandson of Ben and Margaret Arnold of Columbia. This photo is of the cover of the first printing, "first epic novel by Dav Pilkey" and is available, along with others, at the Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY -- ED WAGGENER

Our Grandson Hank Rice, as he finds a rock of kindness at D&F Grocery. Rocks are hidden all over the county to be found, shared on Facebook to the group Adair County Rocks Of Kindness, then rehidden and let someone else get to share in the fun. It is a blessing. Just some simple goodness in this world. - FRANCES SALYERS
