Early stick horse training paid off with adult championship

About: Carol Perkins' Stick Horses

Thanks for printing the great story about stick horses. My husband, who grew up in Kentucky (but in the coal mine area, not tobacco country) said he used a good tree branch and wore it out teaching his stick horse to do sliding stops and reining turns.I believe that the early stick horse training helped him, though, because we still have his retired state reining champion horse on the farm.

Writer suggests live fish sources in Columbia, KY

About: "Information wanted on fish for farm ponds"


Check with Day and Day Feed and Southern States. They both get a fish farm truck in who sells fish and frogs. This will be a business who raises the aquaculture and uses their lot to sell them. They bag them with water in a large plastic bag and pump in air if necessary. You can buy any quantity of fish and they will give you instructions on how to acclimate them to your pond.

About: "Columbia KY Police investigate another Bloody Crossing crash"


Yes! Something does need to be done before more families have to go through what I and my family are going through right now because of this accident.

My daughter is Shellena Smith, the young lady involved in the accident who was life-flighted to UK.

She is having the first of many surgeries to come because of this accident. She will never get over the injuries she sustained at this intersection, and will be forced to live with this for the rest of her life.

Freecycling helps both parties



Thanks, Ed. Please remove the Freecycling ad for the 196ft of white fence.

We had several calls on it and Mr. Burton from Somerset came and took it today.

He was glad to get the fence and we were glad to get it down.

I wondered if we could even give it away when I first put it on Columbia Magazine but I guess it goes to show you that you can give away almost anything. Thanks.

s/Lorene Martens

Thanks. The ad has been removed. We hope others will find, particularly with Spring Cleaning, a way to recycle useful but no longer needed items by giving them to folks who want them. Use any Contact/Submit button to send your own Freecycling ads.

Won't travel by dangerous intersection until light put up

About: "Writer says common sense at CWB not enough action needed"


It is very confusing. I would have to say it is quicker for me to go to Wal-mart using the bypass, however I am afraid someone will not see the stop sign and plow into the side of my car. It has happened too many times. I will not travel that way until a light is put up.

    Columbia would not be Columbia without grand old courthouse

    About: "Scenic Adair Co KY Clocktower from Lindsey Hill"


    What beauty lies in the old white courthouse.

    Columbia would not be Columbia without our grand old courthouse.

    A connecting bridge is a good idea.

    I hope the courthouse will be utilized for its worth.

    The older people have so many great memories and our children do as well

    It''s a landmark and a very attractive courthouse.

    Thanks to Susan Minton for the beautiful picture.
