David M. Raddock: CPAP Misery - Come hell or High Water

The apparatus was supposed to help with Sleep Apnea. That's what the experts at the clinic told him. And he was willing to try it. After all, sleep disorders can cause heart problems or brain dysfunctions. Using the CPAP - Continuous Positive Airway Pressure - device turned out not to be so easy, even conjuring up images of a recent visit to Auschwitz. He endured that, but it was a different matter when the CPAP started peeing on him

By David M. Raddock

I don't know about you, but I spent a good part of my life kicking back after a long day's work and dinner. Clutching a pillow, I'd let the day's anxieties drain from me by watching some television, pulling the covers up to me, and drifting off to sleep. Now, the ease of all that seems to be in the process of change. Months ago, I was diagnosed with a condition that I actually had to "Google" to find out about," sleep apnea (that's pronounced sleep-pap-neeah), a disorder of sleep caused by convoluted and obstructed breathing. Symptoms range from snoring to gasping and wheezing and obesity (with or without dreams of food).

Big Trees I: Mike Watson: A little Big Tree history and historic photo

By Mike Watson

This is a follow-up to my article on "Big Trees in Adair County" that appeared in Columbia Magazine in May 2012. Record keeping being what it is, or was, and record keeping of such things as tree size in Adair County was not something most folk thought much about in the past. Now, however, some enjoy finding out the odd bit of information. Maybe it makes the mind work better, or maybe some of us have moldy brains. Be that as it may, here is a short item with some Big Tree diameters. I dedicate this one to Billy Joe Fudge.

An Adair Countian Spends Easter in Jerusalem, 1900


An Adair Countian Spends Easter in Jerusalem, 1900

On the morning of Sunday, March 4, 1900, Eld. Z.T. Williams of Montpelier, then in his 51st year, departed the comforts of home and hearth to set forth on the journey of a lifetime. A few days later, he met up with three other Elders of the Christian Church and together they traveled by rail from Lexington to "Washington City" and on to New York City. At that place, they boarded the "great iron steamer" Spartan Prince, bound for the Holy Land by way of Naples, Alexandria and the Pyramids, thence to Joppa and Jerusalem, the little band of sojourners arriving in the latter city on Tuesday, April 10th, five days before Easter.

Happy Tails: Easter is Anniversary of move to Columbia

It was seven years ago Easter Weekend that Peg Schaeffer made the 1,000 mile move from Connecticut to Kentucky to set up Sugarfoot Farm Rescue. Now the rescue is firmly established. 'It was meant to be,' she says, of this stage of her destiny.
The next earlier Happy Tail: The 1,000 Mile Journey to a New Home - Sky

By Peg Schaeffer

Easter is the anniversary of our move to Columbia, KY. Seven years ago on Good Friday my son, Chip, and I loaded some of our horses into trailers and started our 1,000 mile trek to our new home. Chip drove a truck and trailer with 4 horses in it and I drove a rig with 5 horses. Of course we had several dogs with us. Our plan was to drive straight through, stopping every four hours to feed and water the horses so that we'd arrive sometime on Saturday.

Tom Chaney: Stealing Time

Of Writers And Their Books: Stealing Time. Tony Hillerman's A Thief of Time concerns looting of artifacts from ancient Native American burial sites. This column first appeared 30 March 2008.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: "From Where the Sun Now Stands, I Will Fight No More Forever"

By Tom Chaney

Stealing Time

I've got one of those atomic clocks here in the bookstore. Generally it marks time unobtrusively. Haven't decided just yet what time is, but the clock does pretty well with a questionable concept.

Until last Wednesday evening the clock caused no disruption. But right in the midst of an erudite book discussion it took a fit. All of a sudden the hands started spinning around. It had already "sprung forward" an hour a week or so back. Now we were tumbled about five hours into the future in less than five minutes. I 'spect the clock could have gone on forever marking off high-speed time, but it was merely proclaiming the violent death of a battery.

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. It's Spring Again

Chuck Hinman: It's Spring Again Chuck looks forward with great zest to spring with exciting spirit of an ageless Nebraska farm boy.
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Large Gardens -- A Lost Art?

By Chuck Hinman

It's Spring Again

Over the years, growing up on a Nebraska farm was a priceless education in "Life" with a capital "L," especially in the spring.

After a cold brutal winter, it seemed like an ideal time to start all over again from scratch. Trees were seen slowly putting on new leaves; the ground seemed to be waking up after a long winter's sleep with sprigs of green life here and there. Even farm animal life seemed to be "in" on this "new beginnings thing" with baby things springing up all over the place. It was like a giant symphony racing to a gorgeous climax with each instrument striving to outdo each other.
