Richard Hovious: Kentucky featured favorably on Madrid Tv

Spanish Tv shows Commonwealth as incredibly beautiful and very prosperous with a low employment - lots of horses and jobs.

Richard Hovious writes:
Ed. Thought you might be interested in a TV "happening" here in Madrid, Spain, this week. The local TV station has a very popular weekly show entitled "Madrilanas en la Mundo\" They visit Madrid natives who have migrated to such places as Singapore, Calcutta,Moscow etc. This week, to my surprise, they visited KENTUCKY! A great show, very good tour of the state, showed Kentucky as incredibly beautiful and VERY prosperous. low unemployment LOTS of horses and jobs etc. Stand by. . . Spain has a 26% unemployment rate! --Richard Hovious
Thanks, Richard Hovious. Maybe you'll find a link for a replay on the internet. Wonderful to find outside Tv is portraying Kentucky as it really is. - ED

Adair Rocks: A Feeling of Exhilaration, a Sense of Awe.

Adair County Rocks, and these rocks were made right here in good old Adair County, center of the universe! - MIKE WATSON
The next earlier Adair Rocks: Adair Rocks: Why I love Adair County by Ted Caldwell

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

The light of my first day was not in Adair County, but it should have been; there wasn't a hospital here then, it was soon to come. Of course I don't recall the ride from Rosary Hospital to our home, out beyond Fairplay, but certainly some imprint of it must have been left upon me. When I drive into Columbia today, the most exhilarating sight I behold, no matter the direction from which I come, is the sight of that grand old Courthouse standing sentinel in the midst of town; seemingly built of iron or steel, ever vigilant, beckoning.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Disinfatuation, a sonnet

Disinfatuation
- a sonnet for my many counselors
nor search in life for such a happening.
Why would there be a word for thing absurd?
Why song redeeming none will learn to sing?

Investigate the mysteries of flesh
but seek in vain the cause of trembling pulse.
Why should uncertain hope the mind enmesh?
Why images unreal the nerves convulse?

Look not for consolation in the soul
nor wander wayward wanting quick relief.
Why must desire resist required control?
Why visions be secured from brazen thief?

No disinfatuation path exists
and heart not soothed, on wants not smoothed, insists.

- Robert Stone, 17 March 2013

Happy Tail: Things happen for a reason - Allie & Monty

Newly orphaned by their humans, two Wire Haired Terriers showed up at Sugarfoot Farm Rescue. It could be marked up to coincidence, but Peg Schaeffer believes otherwise, that Fate was involved, that things happen for a reason, when the Wire Haired Terriers turned out to be Just What the Doctor Ordered.

By Peg Schaeffer

I've said it before and I'll say it again - things happen for a reason. The more I do rescue the more I know that there's a higher power that takes care of these dogs. I'm just a pawn.

Praise for KTC, District 8 traffic change with Flashing Yellow Arrow light

Traffic Critiques from some Great Thinkers

District 8, Kentucky Highway Department, Somerset, KY, is getting high praise, so far, for the Flashing Yellow light installed this past week at the intersection of Jamestown Street and Russell Road in Columbia, KY. Early critiques are very positive. Roger Smith, DMD, an early and vocal critic of the design and the old system, likes the changes - and not just because they are basically his ideas. He said that he has not seen any traffic tie ups since the new system, which allows left turns without a stop on flashing yellow, was installed.

Carol Perkins: Legacies of Tim Best, Anna Beth Branstetter

Carol Perkins pays tribute to two irreplaceable figures, Tim Best and Mary Beth Branstetter, who passed from the scene in such a short time - 38 days apart - whose lives endow Metcalfe County with never-to-be-forgotten models of community leadership
Related: Timothy Milton Best, Glasgow, KY (d. Jan. 25, 2013). And Anna Beth Branstetter, Metcalfe Co., KY (1976-2013)
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: Fighting words

By Carol Perkins

I seldom write about specific people who have recently passed away because every person's death is special to family, friends, and their community, so to single out one or two seems a little selfish, but I am going to make an exception this week. The two people about whom I write either lived and worked or worked in Glasgow/Barren County and Metcalfe County. Most of you will know them or their families.

Tom Chaney: Just Live With It

By Tom Chaney

Just Live With It

A great many reasons caused me to be selling books in 2008 and not beating the drum ecclesiastic in some Baptist pulpit. One of those reasons is typified by a play I saw in 1959 in New York City.

Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Good Ol' Homemade Chicken And Noodles

By Chuck Hinman

Running Away From Home

I was a little boy, about seven years old (1929) growing up on our farm in Nebraska.

It was winter and the snow was deep. Most everyone was taking a Sunday afternoon nap. I had gotten in a scrap with my brother Bob, who was two years older than I. I invariably got the worst of any confrontation with him. So in between sobs, I announced for the world to hear, that I was RUNNING AWAY FOREVER!
