Nothing seems the same in Marrowbone, KY

Grief binds not only members of the Mennonite and Amish families, but citizens of the larger Cumberland County community - and far beyond. In Marrowbone, the picturesque valley community, the feeling of loss by so many of a family which endeared itself with its kindness, industry, and talent, is overwhelming. The family's resilience has always been inspirational; but this time it's different.

By Linda Waggener

Nothing has been the same in Marrowbone, Ky., since the names of 11 victims from a horrendous I-65 crash were released Friday, March 26 2010. Word reached the members of the Cumberland County Mennonite and Amish community that a tractor-trailer truck had crossed over the median and hit the van carrying the John and Saddie Esh family head on.

Without a doubt, the formal opening of the new Russell & Co. store house on Wednesday and Thursday, March 23 and 24, 1910, were two of the biggest days in Columbia's mercantile history.

A large ad in the March 23 edition, headlined "Formal Spring Opening" informed readers of the News that
"We will have on exhibition in the various departments the Largest and most Varied stocks ever shown in Columbia. We're too busy to write a "Long winded" advertisement, giving descriptions and details of the various Lines, but will just ask you to come by on the days mentioned and see the Largest display of General Merchandise that will be shown in this section of Kentucky this spring. We will not insist on you buying anything, just want you to come by and see our display. We will take great pleasure in showing you through our stock."

Carol Perkins, Perfect Vision

Perfect Vision -Carol Perkins
The next earlier Carol Perkins story: Affairs to Remember

By Carol Perkins

Perfect vision. I once had it, but when I turned forty, my vision gradually began to blur. I went instantly from good vision to bifocals.

All of a sudden, I couldn't read the menu in a restaurant without holding it at arm's length. I couldn't read the newspaper or a novel without finding the right distance. Evidently, I wore out my eyes reading hundreds of students' essays during those first twenty years of my career. For whatever the reason, I joined the world of my mother and father the day I put on my first pair of glasses.

Despite our best efforts in planning and anticipating the small horrors that could be waiting out in the darkness, there will be times when we will have to adapt to equipment failures, the unexpected, unexplainable and of course the patently ridiculous. And, we should never get too confident in our abilities. Believe me, there is a humbling moment out there for everyone.

Rev. Joey N. Welsh: Robert L. Surtees

Another Angle. Keen Eyes, striking images: part I was first published 27 August 2006 in the Hart County News-Herald
To see other articles by this author, enter "Rev. Joey N. Welsh," or "Another Angle," in the searchbox. The next earlier essay posted on ColumbiaMagazine.com is On temperance

By The Rev. Joey N. Welsh

Proverbs 25:11 tells us that, "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." That brief verse says a lot about the beauty of the right word spoken in the right way at the right time. The image that comes to my mind when I read that verse, which speaks of language as an attractive depiction, also reminds me that a skillfully composed picture can be quite stunning and meaningful.
