Remembering: James Clyde Holladay

Thanks for the inspiration

By Robert Flowers

"I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.

I was saddened this morning with the news that my cousin James Clyde "Jimmy" Holladay had passed away. What an inspiration he was to us all. His success as an educator with all the love and respect from his students and fellow teachers tell us that we can all accomplish goals in spite of any human frailty. Jimmy never thought he had any reason not to be an example for others that dealt with physical issues. I was proud of him and will miss him dearly. Thank you Jimmy for the inspiration.

Wayne Baxter: Rattlesnakes and Me

We have the picture of one of Wayne Baxter's latest Rattlesnake encounters. It was nothing new to him. Growing up on Meredith Creek in Monroe County, it was common to see one or two every year. He had a dog who was quick as a mongoose at killing rattlers - and one not so clever. He himself learne to smell rattlesnakes. He learned that spooked mules were a fair indicators of the sometimes deadly snakes. And that picture of the snake out for a swim in the Cumberland - that was right above our Crocus Creek , in the Cumberland County.

By Wayne Baxter

My first encounter with a rattlesnake happened before I am able to remember it. I heard my mother relate the time her toddler was barely old enough to play outside alone. She heard the chickens in the yard making a spooky sound they made only when danger was nearby. She rushed outside and her fear was accurate. There was a big rattlesnake in the yard.
