Maverick mare subdued, led home by tried but triumphant Jim

2013-04-09 - Old Gradyville Road, Gradyville, KY - Photo by Sharon Whitehurst. The Elderly and delinquent Pebbles did not come gently back into that good field reserved for her on the Whitehurst place; she seems a little chagrin as she's led by master Jim Whitehurst back into the double fence compound which heavily depleted the fence inventory at Columbia's Tractor Supply to build. In the background, the Payne Janes farm knob, across Big Creek.

Warning to the residents of Bull Run Road area

Man in black pickup stole metal sheeting around the opening of spring on farm on Bull Run Road.

By Barbara Armitage
This morning Wayne was cutting grass when he noticed a man in a black truck stopped on Bull Run. The man got out of the truck and casually walked over onto our property and removed the metal sheeting from around the opening to our spring. He tossed the metal into the pickup with the rest of his load and left before Wayne could get off the mower to say anything.

As Bliss/Columbia is Entertainment East - time to read the writ

The BACKYARD OIL OIL BARONS is the biggest cultural event since Jerry Lee Lewis played Miss Russells Piano at the Adair County High School andJim and Bulldog Curry stole the show from him. With the all time impresario - JR - behind them, the video makers are striking gold in Adair County. Upcitement has taken over, the fires fed by ads like this one on CM: "A major cable network is in town, casting for a new show. We are seeking unique individuals with outlandish stories about true Kentucky experiences. Run-ins with the law, narrow escapes from trouble, and more. If you have a tale to tell, we want to hear from you. Call Alex at 323-828-4879 - Alex Byrnes" Note: Jimmy Reliford vouches for Alex Byrnes. He's bona fide, Reliford says.
But Blisstonians and Columbians need to remember what brought the attention here in the first place, as mentioned in the rant below.

By Ed Waggener

For now, it looks like Hollywood has finally discovered Columbia, as Gordon Crump did, when Columbus didn't.

The best of America's film crews are in town, including top talent of the Discovery Channel. We hope everyone will bone up on how to act right while they are here. They can start by taking out their cellphones and turning to "The Andy Griffith Show, and read the whole chapter from the book of, Episode 13, reading the entire passage, wherein the townspeople beheld a great tree and set out to do a face lift which would have ruineth the town.

The Whitehurst Diaries: The Rampage of an Elderly Horse

Pebbles the Old Horse has always been a biddable horse, always coming to Jim Whitehurst's whistle. But inside her, there beats the heart of a senior delinquent: She's an escape artist, an issue the Whitehursts are now confronting, no longer indulging a farm favorite by blaming misdeeds on innocent deer. Pebbles, the old horse, remains in protective custody at this time, and for the nonce, Sharon Whitehurst reports, 'She's returned to her old docility.' (Me too, Old Horse. Me, too. Hope things don't get too interesting today. I like 'docility' as well, and would run six miles to stay out of a good controversy as I'm sure you, Pebbles, really mean to do. ED)

Pebbles sometimes escapes from her fenced area. We blame the deer if the fence is toppled.

When Pebs went walk-about early last week, the fence was upright, no post knocked over, no wire sagging. She has always been a biddable horse, meekly coming to Jim's whistle and following where he leads.
