Working with our colleagues across the aisle, we forged ahead in committee meetings in which we heard testimony, discussed policy, and advanced bills for a floor vote. Friday, we reached the filing deadline for new bills in the Senate. Moreover, we are pleased with the consequential legislation that is before us this session.

Early Broadcasting in Adair County, Kentucky


A note of explanation: This odd little critter just happened. All that science-y stuff aside, I'm pretty sure it's a product of spontaneous generation. As Uncle Mart told the revenuer about the gallon of moonshine he was caught carrying, "Hit warhn't there, and then it wahr." It started out as a brief response to a Facebook posting, but then it grew, and grew again, and grew some more, and now it's neither animal, mineral, nor vegetable, fish nor fowl, this nor that; rather, it's a rambling, disjointed look at early broadcasting in Adair County. By no means does it claim to be a history; rather, it's an attempt to identify some of people involved and some of the building-block events that occurred from 1945 though the summer of 1951. --JIM

Early Broadcasting in Adair County: a false start; side issues; a remote station & more side issues; WAIN

By JIM

The week before Thanksgiving, 1945, came word a group of Adair Countians had "formed a stock company with the view of establishing a commercial radio station in Columbia. . ." and planned to incorporate as the South Kentucky Broadcasting Corporation. Officers of the group included Columbia businessmen S.C. Bybee, President; Barney Rasner; Vice President; and J.R. Kerbow, treasurer; Rev. L.R. Fugit, then serving as pastor of the Columbia Christian Church, secretary; and Rev. Clifford Spurlock, program director.

Rev. Spurlock, a minister of the United Brethren faith, had long been interested in recording and broadcasting.

Letter: How to open a jar - with one hand

Becky Burkhardt writes:
Try using an oil filter wrench and put it between your knees. It will work. I only have one hand and can tell you how to tie your shoes, button your jeans, zip your coat, and more. You just have to say "there has to be a way." --Becky
