Snaky - is the best name family has for outdoor pet

Snakes Rights activists may be barely mollified. Not sure "slither" is a respectful word for motility, either. Pet does get pretty good deal though: It's left alone to make its living, keep down rodentia, and dangerous ticks and mites they carry. In Adair County, that's a pretty good deal.

Heather Evans writes:
LOL I don't have a name for the snake. I usually see it a few times before winter. Either its in a tree or its slithering through the grass. We just say "Look at the snaky". - Heather Evans

Owners have looked for Chico at animal shelter

Frieda Yates writes:
I've seen a little Chihuahua out here in East 80 but It's a different one than Chico I think. I saw it the other day and called it and tried to get it but it ran and wouldn't let me catch it. I've heard there's two or three in this neighbor hood. We'd sure like to find Chico, I'll keep looking but am afraid we won't find him. We've been to the animal shelter too. - Frieda Yates

JIM: This town never fails to respond

Columbia came through for flood relief effort for Ohio and Indiana, with $102.72 raised after impassioned pleas by Eld. Z.T. WIlliams and Rev. J.H. Chandler at the Adair County Courthouse

By Jim

On Easter Sunday, March 23, 1913, a horrific rainstorm, accompanied at times by high winds, began churning across the eastern part of the United States, dumping several inches of rain on already waterlogged ground. Over a dozen states and virtually every stream east of the Mississippi River were affected to some extent, but Indiana and Ohio took the brunt of the storm. In those two states alone, hundreds drowned, tens of thousands were left homeless, many business houses were flooded or destroyed, and utilities were rendered useless.

JIM & MIKE WATSON: Notes on Egypt, Adair County

By Mike Watson & JIM

Having been privy to the conversation in which the question on the naming of Egypt surfaced, I then replied, and now confirm, that I haven't been able to find the source. However, with due diligence, and some help from Brother-Cousin Jim and his eagle eye, these historical bits are offered in place of a true answer...until one is unearthed, in due time, of course.

However, it is important to note the antiquity of the name in our county's history. Egypt was a school district, and thus, a school house, as early as 1863, likely in the same general location as the Egypt Christian church is today. There was no Egypt school in the 1851 list of districts, so the genesis of that name came between the two dates. - AUTHORS of this Compilation

Notes from a native Egyptian: On how Egypt, KY got its name

Viola Willis Benaitis writes:
Having being born and reared in the Egypt community, I recall (as a child) the legend that the area was named after the Biblical story of the poor people of Egypt, and the residents in the neighborhood were very poor as in the Bible time. Hence, Egypt fit well. So I can say I'm a native Egyptian! - Viola Willis Benaitis

Carol Perkins: Kentucky politics. Mitch v. Ashley

Whether or not an Ashley fan or a Mitch supporter, most of us do not smile at anyone who tears down his/her opponent for personal gain. As a matter of fact, most of the time that strategy comes back to bite the person. For instance, gaining a promotion in the work place seldom happens by demeaning a person to the boss who might also be a candidate. I certainly would not trust someone who builds herself up by tearing down others - CAROL PERKINS

Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - What's that smell?

By Chuck Hinman

Shoo Fly!

Growing up on a Nebraska farm is an experience that everyone should have. One thing however that I didn't miss after leaving the farm is flies.

Flies are attracted to the refuse of farm animals and poultry. We had cattle, horses, pigs, and chickens. Their considerable refuse was for the most part accumulated within 300 feet of our house.

The next earlier Tom Chaney column: Margaret Truman Daniel

By Tom Chaney

The Dark Side of History

We used to be taught in Kentucky history classes that the state's name was Native American in origin and meant something close to "Dark and Bloody Ground." I am not so concerned about the linguistic accuracy of that statement as I am interested in some of the events on the dark and bloody side of our state's history and how those events have been used to help us to define or deny our past -- hence our present selves.
