Rev. Joey N. Welsh: The Good Ship Lollipop and The Titanic

Another Angle, the occasional musings of a Kentucky pastor. The Good Ship Lollipop and The Titanic . First published 6 November 2005, in the Hart County News-Herald
The next earlier Another Angle Another Angle: A poet's Gratitude for fatherly guidance

By The Rev. Joey N. Welsh

The Good Ship Lollipop and the steamer Titanic don't usually appear together in popular thought, but recent history shows that the pairing was a super combination, perhaps unlikely, but still super. Toward the end of the summer I read about the death of California businessman Charles Black. Black, 86, had led a fascinating life. Receiving his bachelor's and master's degrees in business from Stanford University, he had also studied at Harvard. During World War II he had completed over 100 PT-boat missions, had done work as a scout behind Japanese lines in Indonesia, and he had received several decorations for valor, including the Silver Star.

Tom Chaney: No. R716: A Grisham Addiction

Of Writers and Their Books: A Grisham Addiction, a review of A review of John Grisham books. First printed 18 June 2006.
The next earlier Tom Chaney Of Writers and Their Books column, Tom Chaney: No. R715- Summertime reading

By Tom Chaney

Whenever I head out of The Bookstore, I try to leave with a book in hand. One can never tell when one is apt to encounter a slow traffic signal, a wreck on the highway, a boring acquaintance at meal, or a sleepless night.

Usually I go armed with what I'm reading at the moment. Sometimes I just pick a paperback off the shelf whether or not I have read it before. If nothing strikes my fancy, I head for the John Grisham department and pick any book.

Poetry by Robert Stone: What we learn, a sonnet

What we learn
-a sonnet of past holding on to future
We only see the things we learn to see.
The answers known we do not recognize
unless the questions touch what we agree
is worth the effort to internalize.

This world with information overwhelms.
The bits and bytes we do not understand
unless the patterns follow what our realms
of past endeavor put at our command.

All chance encounters might begin new quests.
The possible we do not know as tough
unless the way is scattered with protests --
no explanation ever is enough.

Our loves and hates demand a cutting keen
in choosing what is seen and what unseen.

- Robert Stone, 26 June 2011

Old Sparks Mill 2011 Reunion: Photo Album

Click on headline for introduction, photos

By Ed Waggener

It's one of Adair County's most important gatherings: The Gradyville Get-togethers, reunions, and homecomings organized by Proprietor Bill Davenport at the restored Old Sparks Mill in the Village of Gradyville, KY, at 5109 Edmonton RD, Columbia, KY, held yesterday, 10am-20pmCT, June 25, 2011.

It's a relaxed, come and go as you like time of old fashioned outdoor games, picnics, hotdogs, and, reflecting the wonderful changes of the era, Amish Buggy rides. Most of all, it is a time to do what Gradyvillians do best: Swap stories, remember, and appreciate the very special history, future; relax, and appreciate the unequalled scenery of the Big Creek Valley, nestled in the gentle grandeur of the beautiful hills and ridgelines.

Teresa Bell Kindred: Wings

By Teresa Bell Kindred

I married a Michigan boy so I know who the Red Wings are. If you want to be a pilot you have to earn your wings. I've eaten wings from Pizza Hut. I've heard the expression "a wing and a prayer." I've read about angel wings in the Bible, but until last week I had never heard of bingo wings.

I was talking to my five year old granddaughter when she suddenly grabbed the soft (okay, flabby) underneath part of my arm and informed me I had "bingo wings."

Great Wooded South Ponderings

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

I've read every single comment and there is legitimacy in all of them. However, there are three things I've discovered over the years that I think are worth pondering.
    What one says is more important than how it is said.
  • An ounce of integrity is worth a pound of pompous oratory.

  • Listening is a virtue which is diminished by excessive speaking.

JIM: News from 100 years ago June 1911: James Garnett wins

A century ago there were glory days for Adair County in state politics, with Mr. James Garnett winning the Democratic nomination for Attorney General. The West Side of the Square was a "Happening Place." And flood relocation was underway in Gradyville, four years after the Gradyville Flood of 1907

By "Jim"
The likeness of Adair County native James Garnett the younger (1871-1939) appeared on the front page of the News 100 years ago this week. He was one of two Democratic candidates for Attorney General of Kentucky, and with the primary election looming (it was to be held on Saturday, July 1st) the News pulled out all the stops to push Mr. Garnett's candidacy. The lengthy cutline for the photograph stated, in part,

The next earlier Chuck Hinman column: Chuck Hinman. IJMA No. 336 - The California Style

by Chuck Hinman

A few years after Connie and I were married we were invited to a family reunion at my second cousin's, the Flippo's at Abilene, Kansas. They lived on a farm. Some one in their family had a health need for which goat milk was the remedy. There wasn't a milk cow on their place. But they did have a large herd of milk goats. I need to mention that the Flippo family over the years had been our closest relative-friends. They were more like first cousins and we spent lots of time, enjoying each other's company. Connie was being introduced to them for the first time.

Got homecoming, reunion photos to share?

We hope you'll share your news and photos with CM readers today

There are so many great homecomings, reunions, and events happening in the county that it seems impossible to make them all. CM welcomes news accounts and photos from all the reunions. We're especially wanting those from the events yesterday, including the Hopkins/Christine School reunion, the Taylor-McClister Reunion, and more from the Old Sparks Mill reunion at Gradyville.

An important request: We'd love to post name of those in attendance and we rarely post photos without names of identifiable faces included. Names with hometowns are even better. Our policy is that a picture is not worth two words when those two words are a person's name.

Mark Hale on grammar: Lighten up - there are bigger issues

And he chooses to use proper speech in business; but may use local dialect at the store. There are bigger issues, he says, than how a person uses the word "done."

By Mark Hale

I know CM has received its share of comments on this article but I would really like to throw in my 3/4 cents worth.

I travel a lot of different places and they all have their share of bad grammar folks. While it may not be the most proper thing to do to write with poor grammar it is different when speaking one on one.
