Urges support for Sugarfoot Farm Rescue

Sandi Wills writes:
Once again, Peg Schaeffer has brought tears to my eyes with her "Happy Talee"! What a great loving person to do the most unselfish job ever.

Remember to donate to Sugarfoot Farm Rescue - even a bag of cat or dog food, bowls, dog crates. We can't do the job Peg does, but we can help!

Thanks Peg!

The college hangout near Eastern Kentucky University was a great place for students to go. Great bands played - among the best, Exile, which recently played the Plaza in Glasgow, KY.

By Carol Perkins

A small circular decal on the left side of my back window sums up my musical life and definitely places a number on my age: "I May Be Old But I Have Seen All The Cool Bands." My good friend Judy, who has seen these bands with me, gave me that decal for my birthday last year and I sport it proudly.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Reclaimed dusts, a sonnet

Reclaimed from dusts
- a sonnet looking toward the future
If I could live forever, would I know
too many joys and sorrows shaping me
until the give and take both fast and slow
remade old me into a me not free.

If I could die forever, might I go
pretending truth and hope for countless times
until the lie and shade turned shine and glow
revealed new me reclaimed from dusts and grimes.

If I could love forever, could I show
specific care and longing for the good
until above the dark pure light bestow
reworked tuned me who will be understood.

Though life continually up would grow,
oblivion relentless down will mow.

- Robert Stone, 12 May 2013

By Mike Watson

Adair County, Kentucky has a rich literary history. From the earliest days of the county's history, there were various efforts to promote education. There were several private schools in operation prior to the Civil War and many noted individuals came here to further their "rural" educations.

Several noted writers descend from Adair Countians, and at least one internationally known poet, native Kentuckian, visited and may have penned part of famous verse in Columbia.

COLUMBIA, KY - The second half of the Lindsey Wilson College Class of 2013 was told Saturday morning that the rest of their lives "is nothing but electives."

"You can elect how you spend the rest of your life," said outgoing LWC Vice President for Administration and Finance Roger Drake. "You can elect to spend your life in the service of others. You can elect to spend your life seeking monetary gain. You can elect to spend it seeking fame. But you will spend it - time will march on -- and you need to understand now that it is all an elective."

Commencement remarks of Michelle Obama, EKU Spring, 2013

Adair Countian Russ Walker, ACHS 1986, forwarded this copy he received from The White House of the text of First Lady Michelle Obama's commencement address to the Spring 2013 Eastern Kentucky University graduates in Richmond, KY. Click on headline for complete text
'That's what's always made this country great - embracing the diversity of experience and opinion that surrounds us everywhere we go. So I encourage you all -- seek it out. Don't just spend time with people your own age - go to the local senior center and talk with folks who have a little life experience under their belts. You would be amazed at the wisdom they have to offer. Try visiting a different congregation every once in a while; you might just hear something in the sermon that stays with you. If you're a Democrat, spend some time talking to a Republican. And if you're a Republican, have a chat with a Democrat. (Applause.) Maybe you'll find some common ground, maybe you won't. But if you honestly engage with an open mind and an open heart, I guarantee you'll learn something. And goodness knows we need more of that, because we know what happens when we only talk to people who think like we do -- we just get more stuck in our ways, more divided, and it gets harder to come together for a common purpose.' - MICHELLE OBAMA
