Stunning new signage at Lindsey Wilson College



2013-03-11 - Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY - Photo CM photo. The addition of stunning new street signage is underway on the campus of Lindsey Wilson College. This view is view on Lindsey Wilson Street, leads to the top of the Everyman Hill, in case anyone doesn't know by now, Everyman will be presented on the A.P. White campus, V.P. Henry Auditorium, inside the L.R. McDonald Administration Building, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY. The new signs take the friction out of getting to where townspeople and other campus visitors want to go - especially the Everyman performances at 7:30pmCT/8:30pmET, Wednesday-Thursday-Friday, March 19, 20, and 21, 2013. An Everyman performance banner over the arch at the crest of the hill entrance makes it even easier to find. (Can't wait to post the whole story from Lindsey Wilson College -CM)

Would be great to see Keen Wilson Creek Crossing improvement

Leslie Sapp writes:
I would just like to see the county fix the creek crossing on Keen Wilson Road. It would be good for the residents of Joppa, knock of a few miles when we need to go out KY 80, or even going on over to KY 206. It would be a great help while the bridge work is ongoing, because it is a long way down the Old Glens Fork Road. and back up KY 55 to KY 92. Leslie Sapp

For charity fundraisers: Charity Navigator link will be posted

For fund raiser announcements on ColumbiaMagazine.com, single click links to the fundraiser beneficiary Charity Navigator rating will be posted when available. This will give readers an additional source of information about the charities they are asked to support. Comments on whether donors find this useful or not are welcome.

Also, at the moment, we do not have the staff to post news stories from flyers. Flyers may, of course, be posted as paid advertising, and are very effective, but not as effective as made for the internet Banner advertising. Thanks. -CM

Still posting more, notifying less again today, with emails

Email notifications are not being sent today. We're studying ways to add automation to assist, but not take over, the notices sent. Our thought is that for the 80% of our readers who scan CM more than once a day, this will make little difference - they'll know by their regular checks, and the emails would have been an added burden. - EW

Thanks for your help with editing birthday list

Just a note to thank everyone for helping us maintain one of CM's most popular features, Birthdays and Anniversaries and In Memory Birthdays.
Each morning we peruse the list for obvious changes needed including duplications. That task has been becoming increasingly easy because of readers help.

Most readers now know that the birthdays are scheduled to repeat each year as listed until we are notified otherwise. Most realize that we have no way of knowing of divorces unless we are notified. And, unless a death is one for which we've carried an obituary, we need help with that. A note on finding a birthday needing corrections. It always takes a fraction of the time to make any correction on CM using a Contact Button with the item needing attention. Thanks for using those.

By the way, there is a larger than usual number of birthdays today, but there will probably be time today to post new ones - as a matter of fact, the best time to send new posts in Birthdays is the day of the event. Send new birthdays, anniversaries and in memory birthdays now using any Contact/Submit button. - Thanks. - CM

Martha Berry on the importance of street numbers

She doesn't use GPS or cellphone for directions - finds they aren't up to her standards - but she does endorse use of Street Numbers on Buildings and Signs, and wonders why any business would put its phone number on signage - but leave off the Street Number

By Ed Waggener

Martha Berry has corresponded with us on our insistence that street numbers be a part of each Event posting. She's right when she says that none of the online mapping services are yet good enough to depend on for guidance, and maybe CM has put too much emphasis on that aspect of having street numbers on buildings and in signage. But she gives a solid endorsement for Street and Numbers, she writes:
I agree with you about using street numbers. Have you noticed, when looking for an unfamiliar address, that all the businesses have phone numbers on their signs and no street numbers? Who has time to phone them to find their location. I want to be able to look at the sign in front of their place of business and see 20000 Anywhere Street, not 555-5949. I may have already called them from home for information and now I want to know where they are on the street. And I am probably running at speed in heavy traffic, too. Sheesh. - Martha Berry
You're right on all points: But even if Google Maps are not yet where they will be in the near future, a significant number of us need street and number to get where we're going, as you point out. And we'll thank all the most consistent supporters of the policy, for all they are doing to make travel easier. Our aim is to put the most needed information needed for attendance at events in a concise standard form. - EW

Whitehurst Diaries: The Tradition of Keeping Warm

From Gradyville, KY, Sharon Whitehurst compares winters in three distant parts of America after the recent fierce cold snap here: Telling myself that Kentucky's winter weather is scarcely a patch on that of New England or Wyoming, I pulled warm clothes from the closet and dressed to brave the day: soft cotton leggings under a pair of corduroy jeans, a light flannel shirt buttoned over a turtleneck pullover, wooly socks, my lace-up leather 'workboots.' - Sharon Whitehurst

By Sharon Whitehurst

Winter is reluctant to leave us and make way for spring.

The first week of March has brought searing winds, spatters of watery snow, sleet, buckets of pounding rain.
