A 'troublesome son' relates story of his mother's first love

She was shy of 15, he was 20, when the handsome young man from Russell County and she, the beauty from Acree Road across the line in Adair, slipped off to that day's Gretna Green: Clarksville, Indiana, where their ages needed less adjusting to meet the lower marrying age across the Ohio. A touching story which only the adoring son of a sainted mother could write. And only now, after so many years have passed

By Ella's Son

The recent mention of young couples slipping off to "Gretna Green" to be joined in the bonds of matrimony brought to mind that someone very dear to my heart made that same journey 85 years ago this September.

Poetry by Robert Stone. Sonnet: The almost loved

The almost loved
-a sonnet of lost chances
A better time might come but likely not
for what we need to hear we need hear now.
So burn the words of future goodness plot
for kindness done outweighs eternal vow.

A better place may wait but empty stay
for we will other be when we arrive.
So seize today the chance to joy to sway
for expectations strong let us survive.

A better life can be but with the darks
for visions pale most often fade to faint.
So do not hope in blinding welder's sparks
for only binding patterns less constraint.

We fool ourselves that we have gently shoved
to better help the ones we almost loved.

- Robert Stone, 24 July 2011

Living in the Absence of the Dead

Wendell Berry continues to astonish me. Whenever I venture in among his ideas and people and language, my response is always that he has gotten it exactly right. Back at the book fair in Frankfort, I stopped by his table to renew old acquaintance and to buy one of his newer books, Hannah Coulter (Shoemaker & Hoard, 2004).

Rev. Joey N. Welsh: Season after season

By The Rev. Joey N. Welsh

The writer of Ecclesiastes begins chapter three with the familiar words, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." (KJV). I thought of those words for this week's column, because for longer than a century the plays of George Bernard Shaw have been coming to life on stage. And since the time that Shaw began writing his plays, there has hardly been a season of any year without someone somewhere putting on a Shaw play.

A Kindred Spirit: 87,000 Kentucky Kids raised by grandparents

By Teresa Bell Kindrednanahood.com

Figures show that nearly 87,000 Kentucky children are being raised by grandparents.

According to the article I read, experts who follow the situation point to struggles with drug and alcohol addiction as among the reasons grandparents are stepping up to replace absentee parents.

Other causes include abuse or neglect, and the death, illness or imprisonment of parents.

JIM. Local history: The day that Wolford spoke

Adair County's great Civil War hero, Col. Frank Lane Wolford, was a great lawyer and statesman, known for his persuasive oratory in courtrooms and in Congress. Fellow jurist H.C. Baker of Columbia wrote of him: 'No man ever engaged in a political debate with Wolford when he was in his prime, who did not come out of it second best...He knew how to capture an audience and use it to worry and harass the opposition, and it was seldom that a man who met him in discussion once ever desired to get under his fire again.' Jim weaves a story, The day Wolford spoke, of one of Col. Wolford's greatest triumphs in the United States House of Representatives
By Jim

The day that Wolford spoke

In the forepart of 1863, young Union brigadier general Fitz John Porter was court-martialed on the rather thin and somewhat nebulous grounds of disobedience and misconduct.

Fast forward almost exactly 21 years to the U.S. House of Representatives where debate had raged white-hot for four days over the Fitz John Porter bill, the purpose of said legislation being to expunge the court-martial and to restore Porter's commission and good name.

Chuck Hinman: IJMA No. 352. The planter that Chuck built

It's Jut Me Again No. 352: The planter that Chuck Hinman built in 1954 still stands at 3812 Lester, Bartlesville, OK (MAP) . Blessed with a prayer, and despite the economies which circumstances imposed at the time, it still stands. If you want to run by and see it, its only 688 miles/11 hours, 49 minutes west of Downtown Columbia, KY, according to Google.
Is Chuck Hinman your favorite Sunday with CM columnist, as many tell us? If so, we hope you'll drop him a line by email. Reader comments to CM are appreciated, as are emails directly to Mr. Hinman at: charles.hinman@sbcglobal.net

The next earlier Chuck Hinman column: Chuck Hinman: IJMA No. 091, Hitch-Hiking, Soliciting a Ride by Thumb

By Chuck Hinman

In 1954, after Connie and I moved to our new little house at 3812 Lester here in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, I got the urge to build a brick planter between the front porch and the sidewalk leading to the porch. I bought several hundred buff bricks to do the job.

We didn't have much money so I needed to be economical as possible on the purchase of tools.

Today, SUNDAY with CM, JULY 24, 2011

Watch here for quick links to special SUNDAY with CM features as they are posted for July 24, 2011.

Here are Quick Links to selected favorite columns, stories with perhaps some links to albums, and to news from the past week and beyond. SUNDAY with CM - JULY 24, 2011 for July 24, 2011 and your favorite writers + important news stories:
A Time to Praise Great Adair Countians.
More will be added today, we hope, with the help of readers. Along with it, we hope suggestions for what would be proper and fitting honors for the living, memorials for the dead, should be be considered by the community:
  • Charles Victor Sparks: The community continues to grieve. No one speaks of his him with another who knew him without a choke, without misty eyes, and always, an story about how he personally touched so many lives, in both big and little ways. Thoughts are now turning to fitting memorials and tributes.

  • Dakota Meyer:: What tributes Adair and Green Counties have to tell the country how proud we are of Congressional Medal of Honor Dakota Meyer, whose name is already a household word in America? An who was claimed for a short time, by Austin, Texas (but the Austin American has updtated their story in the last day: See http://www.statesman.com/news/local/future-medal-of-honor-recipient-now-lives-in-1633907.html)? A street? A school? A locally made movie?

  • BG James A. Williamson:And as we do, would it be a good time for Adair County to make a permanent monument to her first Congressional of Honor winner, BG James A Williamson: Son of Adair, Medal of Honor receipient? After all, it is significant that there are two Congressional Medal of Honor winners from one small town.

  • Col. Frank Wolford: Does yet more need to be done to pay tribute to him? An article article in Sunday with CM, by Jim about another facet of Frank Lane Wolford's career - as a statesman - brings to memory another quote by Adair County's Judge H.C. Baker from an earlier contribution by Cyrus:
    Judge H.C. Baker wrote this about Colonel Frank Wolford, after Wolford's death in 1895:
    He did not aspire to be any other body than Frank Wolford, and hence he had no model after which to pattern. Frank Wolford was sui generis, a diamond in the rough, and just a little different from all other diamonds.
