Thankful for dental revelation about one of The Old Turners

A Crocus Creek grandmother of many generations ago

Linda Waggener writes:
Dear Mike, I always appreciate your discoveries and feel so grateful that you share what you find of our unique heritage. This letter, especially, warms my heart because the writer described having made teeth for one of my Crocus Creek Turner grandmothers of many generations ago. She probably in no way appreciated having that in print and may have lost her natural teeth due to years of clenching them at her husband, Joe, who by his writings to the same newspaper, appeared to be quite the vexatious male. Thanks, Mike! - Linda (Turner Leftwich Royce Marcum) Waggener

(Ad) A little Arthur Godfrey for Yard Sales today

A Crisis in CM Classifieds at 7:32amCT, Sunday morning, June 9, 2013: We're nearly out of Yard Sales, after a banner week of sales.

A few of us can remember way back when the favorite show on WHAS was The Arthur Godfrey Show. The Old Redhead would be only 110 years old now if he were still alive. One of his signature songs was "I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch and all I do is cry all day."

That may be the feeling of the lone Yard Sale listing today, in South Central Kentucky's most dynamic marketplace, CM CLASSIFIEDS. Yesterday there were almost two dozen - not a record, but a healthy number considering the skittishness of the weather.

Carol Perkins: Step right up - the county fair

The lure of the carnival barkers at the old county fairs often meant country boys with pretty girls at their side lost income from backbreaking work in the fields, some embarrassing moments for boys who sneaked in the girlie shows only to see their fathers across from them, while mothers were watching the little ones on the kiddy rides and overseeing tiny tots covering their faces with grainy messes from corn dogs
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: An after the fact commentary on Memorial day

By Carol Perkins

"Step right up and win that little girl a teddy bear!" The barker at the booth, where knocking down three bowling pins calls can win the life size pink teddy bear hanging to the side of the tent, calls out to a young man escorting a young girl down the midway of the county fair. He looks at the guy and wonders what to do. The young man runs the risk of making himself look like a real wimp if the pins don't fall (which they seldom did). Then, again, on the off chance he should win that teddy bear, he might seal the deal and have himself a steady girl.

By Tom Chaney

The Joy of Drinking

Last week I had a quite special trip. It fell my lot to deliver a Charlie Williams sheep dog from the wilds of Hart County to the wiles of suburban Columbus, Ohio.

Bob and Candy Canzoneri are no strangers to Hart County or even to Williams sheep dogs. Master Blueberry is a replacement for his great uncle who recently died. In the past the Canzoneri made my kitchen a pit stop on their way to visit kin in Memphis and Mississippi.

Happy Tail - It Takes A Village

This week has been the most successful week for adoptions since writer has been doing adoptions. To acheive the success, it took the work of a super-committed Peg Schaeffer and a super-committed, caring community. Each of this week's cases is a heartwarming story, each an inspiring refrigerator door clip in itself - there are several today: from Hobo being returned to his original owner, to a little boy getting his first dog, and the dog getting a wonderful new home in Russell County. This week's column is many happy tales.
Click on headline for complete story with photo(s). Next previous Happy Tail: Happy Tails: Planting a garden. To find a dog to adopt, check CM ANIMALS, remember to do it often, turnover is high, and you may miss out on the pet of a lifetime.

By Peg Schaeffer
President and Founder, Sugarfoot Farms Rescue

This week I adopted out more dogs than I have ever done in one week's time since I've been doing rescue. On Saturday, Hobo, a senior Boxer, was returned to his original owner, after a mix up. Although Hobo had been with us since April 13 he spotted his owner at the fence all the way from the house. I thought his butt would fall off he wiggled his stub tail so hard. He dragged me to the gate and no leash was needed as he followed his owner to the truck.

Loves the story of Gracie Ann Bault

Tami Wilson writes:
Grateful for all those who adopt from shelters instead of buying dogs.

How can anyone think the life of a purchased dog is more precious than that of one who may be put to death only because s/he got lost, their person passed away, or any number of reasons that they may wind up in a shelter?

So many different kinds of animals are in shelters, or at rescues, and so many of them are put to sleep for no reason except that people choose not to rescue them, but go buy a dog.

Love this story!! - Tami Wilson
