Dr. Phil Aaron took care of us even after we moved to IN

Doctor Phil is a great man. I hope that curly white haired man from Columbia gets better. Prayers for his healing. May God bless and keep him.

By Ricky Burton, Edinburgh, IN

Dr. Phil, You know I think you had Burton in you because you always seemed to show up for the Burton get-together on the Ridge. Your dad and you took care of my family for years. I never forget, even after moving to Indiana, you even took care of us then. One time at Christmas my wife Lisa became ill with a stomach virus when we needed to come back to Indiana.

By Michael C. Watson

Decoration Day in the United States was born out of the devastation of the Civil War. During this 'darkest of times' our nation suffered in every possible way. Millions sacrificed in various ways, more than half a million men and some women made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives to the cause. Even before the war ended there were some communities across the nation that paid tribute to these fallen by decorating their graves with flowers and flags. By 1868 the new-born custom of visiting the graves of the fallen had become something of a ritual, and grew with each passing year.

Decoration Day now Memorial Day has become a general day of remembrance for all our dead. With the observance of the day more than a century ago, families began to decorate the graves of all their departed, whether veteran or not. Today we continue this observance. Southerners in particular make the pilgrimage to family cemeteries, often far from their current abode, to honor kinsmen with floral tributes and placement of flags for veterans. This day became a time of reunion for families and friends who, a century ago and since, may not have seen each other since the last observance.

God Bless those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in time of conflict. The long list that follows is of those men who died during the Civil War from disease or in action. They each had a strong connection to Adair County. In large part, these men either resided in Adair County or were born here. Many, many others served to return home. This is a small list from a greater work, The Veterans of Adair County, which is a massive work that will be published within the next year.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Still more pretense

Still more pretense
a sonnet by Robert Stone shadowing Sonnet 27 by William Shakespeare
Worn down again, I hurry to my couch,
A resting place for body bushed and sore,
But restless thoughts for which I sadly vouch
Then stir my brain when muscles would I snore.

Indeed fair reveries of times long past
Insist on searching out a fading friend,
And hold unshuttered eyes wide-open fast
To peer on future loss I apprehend.

Yet all not lost, I send my soul ahead
To capture images no film can fix
Which, like the stars in darkness overhead
Light up the dimly outlined beauty trick.

And so, by day my flesh, by night my sense,
For you, and for myself, still more pretense.
~ Robert Stone, 29 May 2016, based on a suggestion by David Fairbanks Ford
