Sometimes change starts in the most unlikely places

By Barbara Armitage
Personal Commentary

Iíve always felt that the written word was a powerful force.

Just recently I have received - through the Untied States mail, an official government agency I remind you not one but three advertisements from some of our larger businesses in the area each advertising the availability of beer, wine and liquors at reasonable prices.

I myself have always believed that when you send a thought out into the universe itís the beginning of change.

Are these newspaper advertisements a predictor of the future, a prophecy of change to come?

Letís all raise our glasses to the future of Adair County. It doesnít take a mind reader to see where Iím going with this. - Barbara Armitage

He was owner of Max Ro Records and Tapes, and Dollar A Day Video. He was a former drag racer and show promoter for the National Hot Rod Association throughout America. His wife, Diane Rowe, survives.

A road, long the main business street in his native Sparksville, KY, was recently renamed Maxie Lane in his honor.

Maxie Rowe, age 69 years of Sparksville, KY passed away Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at the Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, Hardin County, KY after a short battle with leukemia.

The Messiah Controversy: Creative verse in 1743 London paper

Messiah Moment Wednesday, November 28, 2012:

From Gerald Chaffin
News from Lindsey Wilson Choral Ensembles

The 1742 Messiah premiere in Dublin was a remarkable success. Reviews stated "universal Satisfaction to all." Even the Bishop Dr. Edward Synge wrote, "The whole is beyond any thing I had a notion of . . . It Seems to be a Species of Musick different from any other." He also added the observations: "the young of both Sexes were present in great numbers, their behaviour was uniformly grave & decent, which Show'd that they were not only pleas'd but affected with the performance. Many, I hope, were instructed by it, and had Sentiments inspir'd in a Stronger Manner on their Minds." In the spring of 1743 Handel brought Messiah to London with less than desirable results. Even before the performance, it was criticized "for desecrating the sacred story by being performed in a secular venue" - at the Playhouse! Local papers carried heated debate regarding the appropriateness of the location, resulting in some creative verse from the London Daily Advertiser:
Cease, Zealots, cease to blame these Heav'nly Lays,
For Seraphs fit to sing Messiah's Praise!
Nor, for your trivial Argument, assign,
"The Theatre not fit for Praise Divine."
In another issue we read that it cannot be "defended as Decent, to use the same Place one Week as a Temple to perform a sacred Oratorio in, and the next as a Stage, to exhibit the Bufooneries of Harlequin." Messiah made a significant recovery in London, but it took years, only after Handel returned the work to its original intent - the 1749 benefit for the Foundling Hospital "for the Maintenance and Education of Exposed and Deserted young Children." - Gerald Chafin

The community Messiah-sing with Lindsey Wilson College Choral Ensembles is Monday evening, December 3, 2012, at 7pmCT/8pmET, at Columbia Baptist Church, 201 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY.

Travel: going north from Columbia

As I was headed north on Campbellsville Road, I was awed by the winter wonderland splendor atop Trinity Hill. Every tree limb sparkles like ice and the black cattle look like they are grazing in snow.

It's worth a trip to take in the beauty, or, if you remember what I didn't, to have a camera along, snap some photo to affirm, to borrow a term from the Cane Valley Christian Church/Mary's House, "God's Amazing Grace in Action," nature's way.

The fog and the ice crystals are quickly burning off, and it looks like a glorious day even after the Winter Wonderland in Fall is just a memory in the mind and a keepsake in photos. - Linda Waggener

Check out the birthdays list - we're pretty sure more needed

The very best way to Save Your Time (and ours) - send birthday entries on the day of the birthday!

Today's birthdays list is shorter than usual, making us think that we may have omitted some very important ones in the Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell and Taylor Counties of Kentucky.

We're button-busting proud of the ones on the page already, just want to make sure there's been no glaring oversight.

And we've discovered, just this morning that the very best way for us to maintain the database: That's for readers to check the day's birthdays, then scan for missing ones, and submit them on the same day. Without going into detail, that helps us eliminate duplications and, to a great degree, cut down on email traffic to you.

And it's what one reader has already done this morning, submitting two birthdays we didn't have before. They were both posted in record time.

Submit a birthday, in memory birthday, or anniversary for today using any Contact/Submit button. If you need help sending your email (we rarely post from phone calls because of the chance for errors) call us at 270-250-2730. - EW

Fog is a Factor in morning commute - Larry Smith

Newscaster urges extra care driving this morning

From Larry Smith, WAVE FM 92.7 FM
As he cautiously pulled into the Studio

It's not the worst I've ever seen, but Fog is a Factor and has made the drive from Campbellsville to Columbia treacherous. Lake Effect Fog is incredibly dense in the Campbellsville area to the Tebbs Bend Road area in Taylor County.

This morning, at about 5:15amCT, it was pretty clear from Coburg into Columbia, with Fog a Factor only in the low lying areas around Russell Creek. Then from the Green Hills Road east on KY 80 to the station, it was slow going, though not so bad as in Taylor County.

What is usually a thirty minute drive on a clear day took over 45 minutes this morning. Hope the fog burns off early, but, to be on the safe side, commuters should prepare for longer commutes. Haven't heard from other areas where Fog is a Factor, yet. - Larry Smith, FM 92.7 The WAVE, Radio. Phone 270-384-7979
