Birthday of Amy Mae Coomer, show biz' Evelyn West, Jan. 30

A successful Adair Countian with an important job in Louisville, KY was at the Circle R Restaurant January 15, 2012, and noted that scant local recognition is given to Amy Mae Coomer, and that something ought to be done about it.

Annie Mae Coomer was better known as Evelyn West an entertainer whose talents and endowments surpassed those of her lesser rivals of the day, Jane Russell, Anita Eckberg, Jane Mansfield, and Marilyn Monroe.

There's an entry on her in Wikipedia: Evelyn West), Elroy, Adair County, KY native (1921-2004). And there are many links to videos of her performances in Google.

Something should be done. Just what we're not sure. Maybe a statue. Maybe a plaque. Her name and birthday has been entered in the CM list of Birthdays, Anniversaries and In Memory Birthdays. What else ought to be done? -CM

Judy Grant: Amazed at so many people unaware of sun dogs

A sun dog tells of the weather fixing to change

Judy Grant writes:
Ernestine, A sun dog can be seen during the day just a short distance from the sun. It looks like a little rainbow. A little prism. Mostly of blue, purple and orange. I'm amazed at so many people who don't know about the sun dog. It does tell of the weather fixing to change. I hope someone will post a picture of one and show it to you. God Bless! --Judy Grant

Sundogs: Up above and at one side of the sun

Jane Akin Keltner writes:
I asked my husband, Howard, about the sundogs. He said they were up above and at one side of the sun. A sundog is usually a sign the weather is going to change. The sunset in question did not have a sundog. -Jane Akin Keltner

THE Basketball Game: Lindsey Wilson, 14. Columbia Townies, 5

Sports, By JIM

On the afternoon of Thursday, November 28th, 1907, the Columbia basketball team trekked up the Arbor Vitae Hill to take on the lads of Lindsey Wilson. The town boys "expected to eat Lindsey-Wilson up alive" but as Bobbie Burns observed a few centuries ago, "The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley," and when the townies left for home, they were wiser if sadder for the experience.

Perhaps it was the thin hilltop air, or maybe it was the rarefied atmosphere of academe, but the ball simply wouldn't drop for the Columbia five, and at the end of the first half, the hot-handed Hill quintet had tickled the silk for a 10-3 lead. The Lindseyites cooled off in the second half but the town squad never caught fire, and "when the time keeper announced 'Time up' the score stood 14 to 5 in favor of the boys on the hill."

For Lindsey Wilson, Penland scored 8, Jeffries 2, Durham 2, and King 2; for the Columbians, it was Reid 2, Judd 2, Judd 1. SiblingsTom and Romie Judd played for the townies but the newspaper didn't note which brother scored which point(s).

The News picked Durham and King over Douglas Penland as the L.W.T.S. stars of the game, although Penland singlehandedly tallied enough points to seal the victory.

Carol Perkins: Las Vegas, Part II

By Carol Perkins

As part of the continuing Las Vegas story, Judy and I had just left the MGM Grand in Las Vegas after yet another fantastic Jimmy Buffett concert. The party bus that brought us over was not there to take us back to our hotel, which was too far to walk. We planned to take the monorail, but after standing in the ticket line beyond our level of patience, we walked the length of the MGM to find the cab line.

Robert Stone poetry: Who will not lead, a sonnet

Who will not lead
-a sonnet for the discouraged
Our gifts and talents several or few
determine place and purpose in our group.
The seeming greater gifts will not shine through
when plain withheld dejects in one fell swoop.

Our intuitions and our insights keen
necessitate watch over those who stray.
The constant care is that the right be seen
when false but shining trifles hopes betray.

Our spirit of cooperation bold
defines the limits of our loss and gain.
The fearful ever seek to put on hold
when trials come and settle for maintain.

No guide wakes those at ease who will not lead
while mouthing vain self-satisfying creed.

- Robert Stone, 15 January 2012

JIM: The fantastic LWC win; or Methodists 1, Baptists 0

To see the Spectacular Chase Spreen three-quarter court shot: Click to YouTube Video Clip of the play. Remember to turn volume on computer down before clicking if loud audio would distress others.

JIM writes:
Loved the article, photos, and clip of the fantastic LWC win last night. The final score was 79-78 but I prefer to think of the outcome as Methodists 1, Baptists 0. lol. - Jim
The photos are by the best sports photographer in the country, Duane Bonifer. That shot by Chase Spreen will be talked about in Columbia to the the end of time. I had expected it to be an Ozark Peg shot, like the ones Orby Arnold of Mayfield used to shoot full court while in high school, but the video shows it's more of a Billy Conover flying two hand set. Amazing. -EW

Chuck Hinman, IJMA. Kinney, Nebraska lore

This is for January 15. A few things have appeared in other stories. I had this but didn't realize it until I started checking this version that was sent to me by Alsie Mae Stapleton, a friend of Chuck's, who is sending me all the stories she has. It's exciting to meet her, someone who is so willing to share what are obviously loved stories she has kept. - Robert Stone.

By Chuck Hinman

Kinney, Nebraska, today is a wide-spot in the road - to paraphrase an old saying.

But not so, always. It was much more than that. Can you imagine? Many young folks drive within a mile of it several times each day and haven't a clue of its colorful past.

Tom Chaney: R745, A Philosopher surveys his country

Of Writers and Their Books: . First published in Hart County News-Herald 14 January 2007.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column, A review of The Way to Cook by Julia Child

By Tom Chaney

A philosopher surveys his country

Thomas Jefferson, of course, was the chief author of the Declaration of Independence. During the Revolutionary War he was governor of Virginia, the largest of the colonies. As governor, he had a pretty rough time of it, what with the British dashing about in his native state and making life uncomfortable for him on his magical mountain at Monticello. In fact he even had to flee to escape the pesky redcoats accompanied by Benedict Arnold.
