Anonymous the Iconclast: Bear no bear, nor b'ar, neither

Even at the peril of being impaled for letting the truth spoil an otherwise good story, and in the interest of telling it all, regardless of the consequences, let the chips fall where they may, cliche-free journalism, CM is compelled to share this shattering, skeletons loosed from closet, story - CM

Wherein Floren Morrison assertion about his Granddaddy Yarberry
is frontally challenged, head-on by Anonymous the Iconoclast
On a *very* confidential note, that b'ar Mr. Yarberry saw back in '62 warn't no b'ar, that was just my great-uncle "X" acting a fool. He'd probably been sampling some of his own wares, if you get my drift. One time back in the '50s, there was little rock slide that tipped over his still, and it was told that every fish, turtle, and mud puppy from the Sam Coffey place to the Blue Hole sang every verse of "99 Bottles of Beer." I never much stock in that story, as Uncle X was so tight he would have seined out the squeezin's before they ever hit the water. - Courageously signed for all the world to see, "Anonymous the Iconclast"
Anonymous writes, above, in a very upcited state, upon reading.: Floren Morrison's assertion that his granddaddy Yarberry, saw bear on hill above Coffey Hole

Remembering Jimmy Combest: From near neighbor

By Von Price

The story on Jimmy Combest, he was the son of Dewey and Ethel Willis Combest.

They lived about a half mile down the road from where I grew up on our farm. My brother has been in contact with Jimmy for years. They went to grade school together and remained in contact over the years.

His sisters Lena, Laverne, and Shorty all live in Louisville, Ky.

I remember their house was always so beautiful - a big white two story house with a long drive way.

When you are a child things like that always seem so much larger.

I have very fond memories of his parents and his sisters and I am very sad to hear of his passing.
