Lichens used as Camouflage

Comments re photo 34791 Birds of Kentucky Mother nature going stealth

Chiska Derr writes:

Lovely picture of the lichen-covered bird nest. You wondered if the lichens "took over" the nest after it was built. The answer is no, the bird decorated the outside of the nest with lichens (maybe a Parmelia), which serve as camouflage. Sounds like it worked, if you initially thought the nest was a knot on the tree.

Sincerely, Lichen Nerd

Tom Chaney: No. R707 Rising Tide on the Mississippi

Of Writers and Their Books No.R707: Rising Tide on the Mississippi. First published in the Hart Co. News-Herald Sunday, 26 March 2006.
The next earlier column: Maybe as a poem

By Tom Chaney

Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf coast last year [August 2005]. It will take decades for the area to recover.

Nearly lost in the furor of Katrina and its aftermath, is the memory of the devastation of the Mississippi River flood of 1927. John M. Barry's 1997 book, Rising Tide: the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America, tells the riveting story of the greatest natural disaster the nation has ever experienced.

Commentary one of greatest Hack Rowe accomplishments

Marrying Cynthia Rowe, and bringing a great contributor to Adair Co., KY caps a glowing resume

Victoria Pike writes:
Ed, you forgot to mention one of Hack Rowe's finest accomplishment ever in that glowing resume of his life. That accomplishment being marrying Miss Cynthia and bringing her to Columbia to live. Just couldn't let that go by without mentioning. She is one of the finest community minded people I have ever known. Her work with the Food Pantry has kept many little children from going to bed hungry at night in Adair County. So thanks to my chief financial advisor for making such a wise choice in Miss Cynthia. She has made a difference in so many lives in Adair County, mine included. Hack, hold on tight to her because she is a treasure. -Vicky Pike

Very important birthday coming up tomorrow

Tomorrow, Monday, April 18, 2011, is the birthday of legendary Adair County Indian basketball player Hack Rowe. How he did it at 6' 1" has never been explained by Vertical Leap Scientists, but no one can remember another center outjumping Haskin Rowe. He always got the tip at center jump, giving the 1954-1955 and 1955-56 Adair County High School State Tournament teams a big edge.

GWS Lexicon: More proper Adairification of holt

Comments re article 43735 Questions for GWS LexicographersStranger in a strange land writes:
I believe the answers to Ms. Kolbenschlag's questions may be found in the Adair Assimilation Academy's course titled "Advanced Mumbling: the Adairification of the Queen's English."

As I recall from my own brief encounter with that esteemed establishment of academia, the more common--and therefore more proper--pronounciation of holt is a-holt.

If that recollection isn't correct, maybe one of the AAA professors will be so kind as to advise the CM readership of same.

-A stranger in a (very) strange land
Readers should note that, from the postmark, it appears the "stranger" is a Kentuckian self-exiled in Shawnee territory. -CM

100 years ago: from April 19, 1911 News

County population was 16,501 100 years ago. Land was being sold at public outcry. There were eight physicians in the county 100 years ago.

by "Jim"

News with numbers seemed to abound on the front page of the April 19, 1911 News.

One article gave the just-released 1910 census information for Adair County. The Columbia precinct was the most populous of the seven with 3,097; of that number, 1,022 lived within the corporate limits of "Columbia town." (In this era, the city limits extended one-half mile from the Square.) The Gradyville and White Oak precincts were in a virtual dead heat for second place with 2,790 and 2,785 residents, respectively, while the village of Cane Valley boasted 163 citizens. Overall, the county population was 16,501, an increase of 1,416 since the previous census.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Misleading labels

Misleading labels
-a sonnet for "You Will Rise," an anti-bullying project
No perfect baby grows without some flaws.
A scrape reshapes a knee, a thorn a thumb,
a list too long to make of minor gnaws
ignores the small dissimilar from plumb.

No child escapes unneeded note of self.
A shadow dims the eyes, a frown the lips,
a sad collection filling hidden shelf
outwaits infrequent happiness eclipse.

No age will be of doubt completely free.
A silence wreaks the heart, a din the ear,
a havoc unforgettable debris
disrupts the help but not the hiding fear.

Misleading labels steer the not yet strong
into the graying strains of hopeless song.

- Robert Stone, 17 April 2011

Rev. Joey N. Welsh: Let us sing one of the old hymns

Another Angle, the occasional musings of a Kentucky pastor. Let us sing one of the old hymns First published 9 April 2005, in the Hart County News-Herald
The next earlier Another Angle An Ethics Quiz and a Reality Check

By The Rev. Joey N. Welsh

Every pastor has heard the grumbling. Even if a church is intentional about using a mix of old and new hymns and praise songs, someone will remain dissatisfied until his or her "old favorite" is sung. For some people, a hymn qualifies as being "old" only if it is sung out of an aged, crumbling, and out-of-print hymnal. Even if the very same piece is found printed in a newer hymnal, it only qualifies as a certified old hymn if it is sung from a decaying book.

The words I wonder about "in these parts" are:

JIM: Submissions for Great Wooded South Lexicon

Carry/Pack. Holp. Ranch. Truth with the bark on it

By "Jim"

  • Carry: transport. As, I carried Mama to see Dr. Gose yesterday.

  • Pack: carry. As, Joe packed in enough farwood yesterday to do the weekend.

  • Holp (vestigial Elizabethan English): past tense of "help" , as Willie holp me cut tobacco last week.

  • Ranch:
    1. To perform perfunctory ablutions As, Sam stopped at the water pump and ranched his hands before he went in the house.
    2. To painfully twist. As, Bill ranched his back hauling hay.
    3. A handy devise for mechanical work As, Joe bought several screwdrivers and a set of box-end ranches.

  • The truth with the bark on it: One of my sainted Mama's favorite expressions. This was her version of Sgt. Joe Friday's (in)famous line, "Just the facts, Ma'am". Mama was a lady and gentle soul, but you didn't want to be on the receiving end of any such truth. She was was a grandmaster of the art and mystery of calmly and quite without rancor delivering "just the facts" sans sugar coating or bowdlerization, and as a general rule, the recipient lost more skin than a body might want to at any given time. Indeed, Mama's "truth with the bark on it" had considerable bite.
