Patty Jones remembers influence of two Metcalfe Co. teachers

Carol Sullivan Perkins and Carol Salato Myers

Patty Jones writes:
Carol (Perkins) was my writing teacher at Metcalfe Co. High School and I was so glad to have had her when I arrived at EKU. I helped many of my classmates there with skills she had taught me. However, I also was lucky enough to also have Carol Myers as my 8th grade math teacher there and now as a colleague in Adair Co. Thanks to both of them for their impact in my life! - Patty Jones

Carol Perkins gifted writer - and teacher

Carol S Myers writes:
Carol Perkins always hits the nail on the head. She is such a gifted writer. I've personally watched her teach the writing process to students and marveled at what she drew out of them.

I laughed when I read the part about her leaving a bag on the carousel at Walmart. I've done that at different stores.

Keep them coming, Mrs. Perkins! --Carol S Myers

Fan mail for Speckles, the snake killing cat

Linda Waggener writes:
Mike, thank you for sharing the good news about your cat, the snake killer. I come from a long line of women who, like Indiana Jones, hate snakes, and would highly value a cat like your Speckles. It's hard being a tree hugger and yet want all snakes to be hauled off to another country. I know it's not reasonable, but that's just how it is. Give Speckles an extra serving of cat food from a fan in Columbia. - Linda Waggener

By Peg Schaeffer

In the middle of January on a typical cold winter day I got a phone call from Brittany Kelley who had found a litter of puppies by the side of the road. She and her boyfriend were going to town. On their way they didn't see any puppies but on their way back there they were - six very young puppies. She and her boyfriend brought them home and tried to find homes for them.

The Winfrey House Hotel & an Epidemic, 1873 in Columbia, KY

Many in Adair County know the most vague details of the tragic outbreak of cholera in 1873. This story by Adair County Historian Mike Watson gives full description of the epidemic, with fascinating details including the wedding of a dying local physician to the girl he had "been seeing"- the ceremony performed with the dying groom upstairs at his farm home about three miles from Columbia, his bride, who was carrying his child, standing in the front yard of the home.

Adair County Historian

The building on the corner of the Public Square and Campbellsville Street, long known to many as the Collins Drug Store, is the only original building on the Square. In the 1870s it was operated as a hotel, the Winfrey House or Winfrey Hotel. It was at this hotel that the tragic cholera epidemic erupted in August 1873. Here is a little history of the events that unfolded.

Carol Perkins: Mama Said

The case of the missing, paid for shopping bag. A story with a moral: Always spin the bag wheel to see that one has all one has paid for. Back home, empathetic husband sensed something awry by a black cloud hanging over our heroine's head.
For next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: Too much violence

By Carol Perkins

"Mama said they'll be days like this, there'll be days like this, Mama said."

The Shirelles' hit "Mama Said" can best describe my outing last Saturday. My mother never warned me about bad days as the song says, but if she had, she would have warned me about this one.

Sue Grafton at "T"

Some time back I wrote about the Graftons, father and daughter. That was mostly based on my discovering C. W. Grafton, the father, for the first time.

Long Johns Weather In Nebraska

These cool mornings we've been having remind me of dreaded winter weather when I was a teen-age boy growing up on a farm in Nebraska. It was dreaded by me for an unusual reason; cold weather was synonymous with "long johns weather."
