Happy Birthday: Hayden's fourth

2009-05-08 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Melissa Taylor.
HAYDEN BENNETT'S FOURTH BIRTHDAY WAS MAY 6, 2009: Melissa Taylor writes, "Hayden's incognito accomplices reluctantly agreed to shed their Spidey masks long enough for this photo.... They are, Back row, Ricki Anne Rogers, Kenzi Rogers, Katie Stone, Madison Grant, Ty Bennett and Wes Stone. Second from back: C.J. Bonifer, Schyler VanArsdale, Jalen Rogers, Jonathan Grant. Third from back: Brenton Billingsly, Caleb Lee, Kobe Stapp, Savon Stapp, Jonathan Grant, Quinton VanArsdale. Of course, the young lady looking at big brother Hayden with so much admiration is Miss Addie Bennett. Madison Billingsly, Parker Bonifer, Ava West, Callie Morrison, Cameron Kimbler, Andrew Zinati, and Bryant (a.k.a. Burr Ray) Rogers were all much too busy playing to be troubled with such bothersome things as photos! At right Hayden was excited and a bit surprised to blow out his candle on the first try -- but, of course he's a big boy now! "

Agrees: Greensburg, KY is absolutely beautiful

About: Thinks Greensburg KY renovation is beautiful


I went through Greensburg last week and it is absolutely beautiful.

If you have not been that way in a while, stop and park on the square, visit the old courthouse, walk across the foot bridge and then you can eat at one of their two new restaurants.

It is worth a trip.

s/Jelaine Phillips

A CM "Amen." Greensburg is absolutely delightful. Jimmy Downey says it's better than Colonial Williamsburg and it's a lunch hour trip for most Adair Countians. Thanks for the reminder. -EW

Wants to know name of flower on Green River Dam

About: Green River Lake Just lots of water water through the dam

Hey Ed,

As most would attest, I am an avid outdoorsman. However, I am very unfamiliar with the ecosystems of west facing slopes of earth - filled dams. Because of this unfamiliarity and the obvious optical illusion causing the immature yellow flowers to appear as big as buses, I can't seem to get a handle on what kind of plant you have captured.

Maybe one of the many CM experts on herbage might give me a "hand up" and lift me out of my confused state, at least temporarily.

s/Billy Joe Fudge

Thanks. The answer is, I don't know. Maybe some knowledge wildflower expert will help us out on this one.

Heavy rains create Gradyville Flood 2009; county road problems

By Ed Waggener

Heavy overnight rains produced a few problems in Adair County. On Old Gradyville Road, Big Creek was over a bridge, Betsy Fausnaugh reported this morning, Friday, May 8, 2009. It was enough to cause some motorists to turn around and not attempt a crossing, she said.

Jobe Darnell, Superintendent of the Adair County Road Department said that his crews are looking at problems from at least five areas of the county this morning. At 8:58amCT, he had the following places to check:
  • Oak Grove Road in District 3
  • Odell Baker Road in District 5
  • Dotson Road in District 3
  • Allen Schoolhouse Road
  • Powell Creek Road in District 3
On the lighter side, Charles Sparks, meteorologist, Gradyville historian, and rememberer of everything that's happened and some, some say, that didn't, reported there had been 4" of rain last night. "Worse than that," he said, "we had 3" of lightning. It's bad if it piled up. A pile of that stuff will kill you if you get in it," Sparks said.
