By Dan White

GULF SHORES, AL - Jyssica Pepper led off the fourth inning with a home run to center field that was all No. 8 Auburn-Montgomery needed to top the 15th-ranked Lindsey Wilson softball team 1-0 on Sunday, March 10, 2013, in the Orange Beach Invitational at the Gulf Shores Sportsplex.

Pepper went 3 for 3 for the game and stole a base as the Warhawks (14-1) and Blue Raiders each finished with just five hits. Pitcher Kristina Krupinski led the Lindsey Wilson (14-2) offense with two hits, while outfielder Antoinette Jenkins added two stolen bases to one hit.

The loss comes in the first round of the invitational's gold bracket, bringing an end to the Blue Raiders' spring-break road trip. Lindsey Wilson qualified for the top bracket after finishing 3-1 in pool play on Friday and Saturday, March 8-9, 2013.

The Confession of a long ago misspent Russell County, KY youth

It happened at the B&W Poolroom in the Western Capital of The County. The pinball lord remaineth not anonymous. But Yr. Eloquent Scribe remains Anonymous exile and now now lives elsewhere, we know not where, for certain.

A Russell County Exile writes:
This photograph jumped out, grabbed me by the throat, shook me like a rag doll, and left me writhing in the shards of my dissipated youth and misspent allowance as memories of my (failed) attempts to become the pinball wizard of the B & W Poolroom in downtown Russell Springs, Ky., rolled in like a cloudburst tide and receded just as quickly.

My one fleeting moment of pinball infamy came --and alas, vanished in a wink -- the night the machine and I became as one and I racked up innumerable free games, more than I could play, actually, and I had to pass them off to someone else, someone of sterner stuff and quicker hands. That was well over four decades ago, and I haven't dropped as much as four bits in a pinball machine since.

Sic transit gloria mundi.

(If memory serves correctly, Mr. Thomas M. "Tom" Brashear owned the pinball machine franchise in Russell County.) --A Russell County Exile

Maury likes idea of a community shuttle bus

Comments re article 58119 Wants to find places more easily on Lindsey Wilson Campus

Maury Lewis writes:
I like the shuttle bus idea.We could meet in the parking lot of the extension office or Walmart then we wouldn't need a map or have to be concerned about finding a parking place. I would like to go to more events at the college when the public is invited. Thanks Ed for your comments and ideas. melewi --Maury Lewis
Maury - Thanks. And I take it you also want to go to events at the college when finding the venue is easy? Right? Maybe the town, county or college will hire you as a consultant and you won't leave town. We don't need the kind of brain drain we've been experiencing in the last few weeks. And you'll be sorely missed. There really ought to be two shuttles, don't you think, one a C/AC electric school bus (See: Forget the Prius; the future of electric is the School Bus, at the Wall Street Journal online.) making the rounds to Downtown Columbia and Holladay Place, the other an EV golf cart "da plane, da plane" resort style open golf cart shuttle to Roberta D. Cranmer Dining Center, 430 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY for those who want a fine dining experience, or directly to V.P. Henry, from the extension parking lot. By the way, someone as smart as you has to have a PhD Or, you're a semi-driver with a CDL. Which is it? See you at Everyman, at 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY - ED WAGGENER

Food and Lodging in Early Adair County

Mike Watson presents an in-depth story today, as talk renews about the future of the hotel business in Columbia. He's listed numerous families who have had notable hoteliers in them - Diddles, Hurts, Beards, Lamptons, Martins and Moores,, Reavilles, Burtons, Harveys and Hancocks and Hudsons, Winfreys, Cheathams Hardwicks, Bakers and more. If you read closely, you may find one of your own. But he doesn't stop with Columbia - he includes Cane Valley, Dohoney's Mill with its 1865 Christopher C. Squires Tavern; Millersville/Crocus, Gradyville and its famed Wilmore Hotel, Milltown, and hugely: Neatsville - with no less than 10 entries in his list. That's a neat nugget of information about the town which once vied with Columbia for pre-eminence among cities here, but there is just as neat a list of government interventions in private enterprise, way back in 1802, when the price of Lodging, one night, with clean sheets was 6 pence and a quart of beer cost more, 9 pence. A scholarly work that will fascinate, educate, and entertain those who love history - this work the history of an industry up to the 'modern' era of 1898, when John N. Conover built the most storied private structure in Adair County history, the Conover Hotel, on the northwest corner of the Public Square. CM

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

The word "tavern" often brings to mind, in modern times, a bar or dive. However, the tavern of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was a bit different than what we might think. The tavern often spoken of in early Kentucky history was more of a hotel and restaurant than a bar, though alcohol was an integral part of the business.

Hotels were few and far between on the frontier. Many families who lived on the often traveled roads and paths of early Kentucky would take in any weary wayfaring individual and feed and house them for the night. There were varied dangers in the night, from bears to bandits, from wolves to unfriendly hunting parties. So, any safe haven was valuable to the traveler, and possibly profitable to the inn keeper.

Carol Perkins: Fighting words

Carol Perkins remembers when no one in her family was ever allowed to call another "liar." Now she's had toapply that standard to what was once a favorite Tv show - one she no longer watches because it went over the line.
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: Glasgow/Barren County Expo was success

By Carol Perkins

Although I don't remember having discussions about this subject, I grew up knowing what was appropriate to say and what was not. I knew never to point out the flaws of others, make hateful remarks, or ask inappropriate questions such as "What is that on your nose!" Above all, I knew never to call anyone a liar. Those were "fightin'" words. There is a reason for my recent thinking about this topic and it has to do with Bill O'Reilly.

Next previous Happy Tail: Happy Tail: Amelia - First of three Amigos to find Furever Home

By Peg Schaeffer

I received a message from Terri Simpson from Rescue. There was a Spring Fling to be held on Saturday, March 09, 2013 at the Central KY Agricultural Center and she asked if I could bring some adoptable dogs. It was short notice and I was looking forward to having a Saturday off. She enticed me with proceeds from a Pet Photo Contest that would go to Sugarfoot Farm Rescue. So since I'm always looking for a way to raise funds for the dogs I agreed to go. The other ultimate sacrifice for me was that it was starting at 9amET, which meant 8amCT and I would have to leave at 7. This translates to me getting up at 6am.

Tom Chaney: A Matter of Honor

Of Writers And Their Books: A Matter of Honor is a review of the novel The Court by William J. Coughlin. This column first appeared 9 March 2008.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: Wilson W. Wyatt, Sr.

By Tom Chaney

A Matter of Honor

The Supreme Court is often dividing four-four -- liberal-conservative. Justice Brian Howell, clearly the swing vote, has suffered a stroke, certain to be fatal.

Four cases are before the court. The justices are divided or are perceived to be divided on all four. A quick appointment is deemed politically necessary by the President, for one affects him directly.

By Chuck Hinman

Good Ol' Homemade Chicken And Noodles

Both my mom and my wife shared one expertise; both were experts at making home-made noodles but in very different ways. In all my years of living, I never saw a store-bought package of egg-noodles in a Hinman pantry. Skinners or American Beauty would have gone bankrupt if they depended on the Hinmans keeping them in the noodle business.
