Miss Donna Rieder learning a lot about Coffey Hole land

Land was once Judd Hill; there was once a distillery on property

Miss Donna Rieder writes:
What a great response I got to the posting of that photo, especially a phone call from Mr. Leon Huff, whose property joins mine at one point. His property has been in his family for generations, and he is very familiar with my property as well, having played here as a kid. He shared some interesting history of my parcel with me, including the fact that it used to be known as "Judd Hill," after a Mr. Judd who owned the property at one time and had a distillery at the spring. He promised he and his sister would come visit me soon, and bring copies of papers and other information about the history of not only my place, but the surrounding area, Sam Coffey Hole, and such. Fascinating stuff! -Miss Donna

Wonders how unemployment figured

Comments re article 57001 Kentuckys jobless rate dropped to 81 percent in December 2012

Dale McCloud writes:
I would like to know how unemployment or jobless rate is based on. Is it all Ky. residents who are between the ages of 18 and 70? Apparently it is based on some ghost numbers or fuzzy math. There are more people in Kentucky on entitlement than those of us working. How can the jobless rate be what it is? - Dale McCloud
Thanks, Dale McCloud I rely on this metric, trusting that is arrived at in a consistent manner, and that the arithmetic always based on the most reliable statistics available. For how it's done, see:How the Government Measures Unemployment. The article gives answers to 14 FAQs about how we get joblessness figures. - EW

Happy Tail: Dolly - a new life for an old dog

Dolly was old when she came to Sugarfoot Rescue. She was good with the other dogs, never aggressive but never made any attempt to play with them. She always had the saddest eyes that went so deep it was as if she had a very sad story to tell. She did, but all that changed when a woman from Louisville saw Dolly's photo online, and sensed she would be a perfect quiet companion for Bodhi. Click on headline for story with photo(s)

Dolly - a new life for an old dog

A year ago a man stopped at the farm to tell us about a dog that had shown up at his house. She was very skinny and had been there for a few days so he knew she must be a stray.

He asked us to take her in. He brought back a senior female black Lab who was emaciated. She obviously had been nursing a litter of puppies and they had literally sucked the life out of her.

She looked tired, worn, and brokenhearted.

Color coded classroom wings interesting concept

Writer suggests Cardinal and Wildcat markers, also, for those who are color blind

Doug Beard writes:
I have enjoyed the updates on the new elementary school. The blue and green color schemes to aid students in finding their rooms is an interesting concept. Of course, up to 10% of males, and a lesser number of females, are colorblind. Maybe we should also throw in some additional imagery to guide the way! I guess we could add Cardinals and Wildcats as the directional indicaters. That could certainly make it fun!! --Doug Beard

Great Wooded South: Whiskey Fudge shines for the family

Big Al's travelogue and the sign, Whiskey Fudge, brings to mind the man known as Bourbon Fudge, a kinsman of Billy Joe Fudge who created a magical cough killing and nerve settling potion rotchere in dry still Adair County, KY

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

I think Whiskey Fudge is a distant cousin of mine but didn't know he was living that far down in the Great Wooded South. When he was living here, he was known as Bourbon Fudge. At any rate, he's living proof that the family name continues to shine.

The Adair County Indians boys basketball team won their fourth in a row with a convincing 76-47 win over Magoffin County, in the Al Prewitt Classic at Henry Clay High School, Lexington, KY, Saturday, January 19, 2013.

The victory was the eighth win in their last nine games, for the amazing young team - led by a pair of eighth graders - which is capturing the hearts of a community which is already comparing them to what was perhaps Adair County's greatest teams, the 1954-55 and 1955-56 John Burr State State Tournaments' No. 4, and No. 2 squads.

Carol Perkins: Willie. Just Willie

'Willie is seventy-nine years old, so he can (and always has) behaved uncharacteristically of what most of us would call normal: the person who keeps his/her moments of bad behavior private, if he/she has any moments. Not Willie.- Carol Perkins
The next earlier Carol Perkins Column: Carol Perkins: Time for annual pity party

By Carol Perkins
Willie. Just Willie. There is probably not a person under the age of 30 who doesn't know Willie Nelson. The author of the recent best seller Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I'm Gone can turn words on a napkin into a classic hit. Plus, who else could get by with a title like that? A title that is bound to raise the eyebrows had it come from anyone else.
