Dealers, deals fantastic at Jim Blair Center Flea Market

Writer says she may selling at next Flea Market, herself

Cynthia A Meyer writes:
An item pictured in the Jim Blair Flea Market caught my eye. I made a quick trip to town, and was pleasantly surprised at the items offered at the flea market. The deals were fantastic, and so were the sellers.

The rates for stall spaces seem very reasonable so I might be selling at the Flea Market myself. - Cynthia A Meyer

PS - Good thing I drive a Blazer instead of a pickup truck or I will still be unloading the deals I scored today. - Cynthia

Village of Adare, in County Limerick for Sister City

A fitting connection for with so many of Irish ancestry

Justin Bailey writes:
While you are looking for possible sister cities, why not look at County Limerick, Ireland where the village of Adare is located. I think with many in this area having Irish ancestry, it would be a fitting connection. - Justin Bailey

Poetry by Robert Stone: Still are worth the chance

Still are worth the chance
- a sonnet reminding the poet to pay better attention
I slipped and fell into familiar air
and downward brushed against the folding rack
and clothes and cloths quite dry were waiting there,
like me, oblivious to coming whack.

I slid and failed to stop before the crunch
and sideways touched too many twinging stings
and good and bad from past arose with punch,
like me, forgetting all that hope still sings.

I slowed and foiled mishaps that were not swift
and upward moved with seeming grace and charm
and true and false seemed same but far adrift,
like me, unsure if doubt should cause alarm.

Yet some encounters still are worth the chance
of being death's request for final dance.

- Robert Stone, 4 August 2013

CofC Board member issues challenge to Charles Marshburn

She'll back him for Columbia/Adair County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, where he can devote his considerable talent to the paramount issue of the day: Suggesting a Sister City for Columbia, KY for City of Columbia to make official? (They do that, don't they? Or is it the Garden Club? The Rotary? the Chamber of Commerce? or is that the purview of the Bear Board?) - CM

Wendy Butler Burt writes:
Like any volunteer organization, members of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce have their hands full conducting their busy lives and volunteering their time, energy and ideas to the organization. I am certain that other members of the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors would join me in welcoming Charlie Marshburn as a member of the Chamber of Commerce. Then, as a member of the Chamber, Charlie would be able to devote some of his considerable talent to the project of securing a sister city for the City of Columbia. - Wendy Butler Burt

Mike Watson: Motor cycle riding was a big hit for one Adair Countian in 1911 ...

Lamentation of ex pat Adair Countian, from Ohio a place with little to compare to home: 'That is right boys, love the home of your childhood, for it is the sweetest place in memory. I would like to be home and attend one of those all day singings, and dinner on the ground. There is never anything doing like that up here.' - JACK BAILEY, in one of many vignettes on the coming of the automobile, the motorcycle, speed limits, and a motorcycle tragedy in Lebanon, KY compiled by Mike Watson

By Mike Watson, Adair County historian

The following is from a letter written to and published by The Adair County News, July 5, 1911, by Jack Bailey, then living and working at South Lebanon, Ohio, but native of Adair County.

"I am still liking this part of the country fine. Crops of all kinds are looking well, as we have had plenty of raid. Wheat and hay harvest is on hand now, and there are not enough work hands to supply the demand. If any of the Adair County boys are out of employment, they should find plenty of work here on the farm or in the factory, and get good wages.

Happy Tails: The story of Dalton, a survivor, and a keeper

Dalton is a little Manchester Terrier, whose difficult earlier life is heart rending. He's got wounds that can still be easily re-awakened and which make his prospects for adoption slim. He's a "keeper," at Sugarfoot Farm Rescue, with a special bond with the director - and a home at the farm as long as he needs it. His story would make a movie. Peg thinks he should write a book. This Happy Tail may be a big chapter in the book, his latest escapade, lost for 10 days in Bowling Green, KY.

I've had a good life. I've been places, done things. I'm retired. This is the new chapter in my life - to help animals who need me. I was picked for this job when I was a child. Yes, my entire day is spent caring for the dogs.

But look at all of the other dogs in bad situations. I read stories about them and I want to save them all. But I can't.

Director, Jim Blair Center

I think we're on to something South Central Kentucky wants.

The first flea market yesterday was an encouraging, impressive start.

All the vendors seemed pleased with the steady flow of people throughout most of the day and many buyers were enthusiastic and offered to help spread the word - and give us notes, advice on how we can make this a regular, successful event which help underwrite the many programs we now have, and aid the future growth of Columbia/Adair County Parks & Recreation.

I am usually very patient, but it has been over three years since I asked about Columbia's sister city situation. Seems it is another "don't ask, don't tell." Seems the chamber of commerce is on the dole according to a spokesperson at the COC by public library inquiry and this is not at the top of their list of accomplishments. - Charles Marshburn

The Man Standing Next To Us

What a pleasure it is to watch a beginning novelist search for and find a viable voice. Puts me in mind of a young colt I saw the other day out at Cub Run. Not more than a few days old, he knew just what he was after and was already pretty certain about how to get it. Once in a while his legs got in the way, but I could tell he would soon find his stride.

Christopher Rice hit the ground confidently with his first novel, A Density of Souls, set in the New Orleans of his youth.

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. I Left My Heart at the Stage Door Canteen

Chuck Hinman: I Left My Heart At The Stage Door Canteen. Chuck recounts his experiences at the USO canteens during his 1942 stay in Los Angeles for Air Force training and his later disappointment when revisiting the city.
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Tools / The planter that Chuck built

By Chuck Hinman

I Left My Heart At The Stage Door Canteen

After finishing basic training in the Air Force in 1942 at Sheppard Field, Wichita Falls, Texas, I was assigned to an eight weeks training school in Los Angeles, California. We were billeted at the Grand Hotel at Ninth and Grand in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.
For a Nebraska farm boy who had never been farther away from home than Wichita, Kansas (200 miles), I felt I had died and gone to heaven! Please don't wake me if I am dreaming, I thought!

In the prime of life

I was in the prime of life, had two years of college under my belt, and had just finished two months of rigid physical basic training which left me 'mean and green.' I was the epitome of the sayings 'bright-eyed and bushy-tailed,' 'foot-loose and fancy-free,' ready for a good time wherever it was! Look out 'CALIFORNIA, HERE I COME' -- ready or not!

There were scads of military installations in and around Los Angeles. The streets of Los Angeles were alive with military personnel from all the branches of military service. It was a young person's world! Everywhere you looked there were young people. Older people, if there were any, seemed to be in hiding!

Schooling a breeze, roommate a fellow Nebraskan

The schooling was a breeze and it was like an 8 to 5 job. There was no homework. Other than making mess call three times a day at a nearby cafeteria, we were free to do whatever we liked with a 9 pm curfew on weekdays, midnight on weekends. What a life! And what a place to spend it in -- Los Angeles, California!

I was assigned to room with a fellow Nebraskan. His last name was Reiner. His first name escapes me now but he was a big German farm boy from O'Neill, Nebraska. We got along great for the duration of this school -- then were separated during the rest of the war but found each other afterwards when we were fellow students at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. We of course exchanged many pleasant reminiscences of our times together in L. A. with accompanying belly laughs at all the silly things we had done there.

USO canteens quickly found

'Soldier boys' in large cities such as Los Angeles quickly found the very popular USO canteens. I was no different. I 'lived' at the canteen in my free time and developed many heart-throbs! And of course, I became a noted (not) pool shark and skilled ping-pong player! I cut my teeth, so to speak, on the dance floor at the canteen but no one mistook me for Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire. There was little resemblance!

The canteens were ALWAYS staffed with pretty, nice girls to the delight of us service-men. A very popular song of the day made popular by Sammy Kaye was" I Left My Heart at the Stage Door Canteen" by Irving Berlin: This Stage Door Canteen was the subject of the very popular Broadway play of the same name.

Marlene Dietrich at the Hollywood Canteen

During my short two-months stay in Southern California, I discovered the Hollywood Canteen. On a visit there one Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of being served refreshments by the glamorous Marlene Dietrich! Of course, everyone crowded to have their picture taken with the famous German movie star! I also heard the famous singer Peggy Lee do her rendition of the song "Fever" for which she became noted. Movie stars and starlets were a dime a dozen on this Sunday afternoon! After all, I was treated to being a guest in their backyard, so to speak.

As you can understand, I am rapidly beginning to be spoiled by this 'new life'!

Overwhelmed by outings

And that's not to mention being invited to a super-glamorous home in Hollywood on Thanksgiving Day along with my roommate and a couple of buddies who had signed up at the Los Angeles USO canteen for such an outing. What opulence and down right genuine hospitality! Our country has a wonderful history of its citizens pouring it on for its soldier boys!

In addition to spending every minute possible in the USO canteens of Los Angeles and Hollywood, my Auntie Grace lived nearby in Glendale, California, entertained me royally when I had time to hop a bus and go out to visit her. She showed me all the things for which Southern California is famous, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, the Griffith Observatory, the homes of the rich and famous in Hollywood, and on and on. I don't see how she could have packed so much into such a short time. My eyes and mind were about to explode! From a cultural SHOCK?? Probably! But I loved every minute of it!

Sold on Los Angeles

Of course, as you might expect, the time flew because I was having the time of my life!

Frankly, I was SOLD. I had every intention in the world to return to Los Angeles after the war to make my permanent home. I was so taken by its charm during the eight weeks of my residence there. I could hardly wait for the war to be over so I could make the big move and resume where I had left off in early 1943.

Revisiting Los Angeles several years later

Several years later I had an opportunity to revisit Los Angeles on a layover during a transfer from Fresno, California, to my new assignment at Kelly Field, San Antonio, Texas. It goes without saying, I had eagerly looked forward to such an occasion and here it was!

I visited the Grand Hotel first, my home during the wonderful days in 1942. I was shocked -- it was still there but it just flat LOOKED DIFFERENT! It no longer housed troops as it did in 1942. The laughter and good-natured bawdiness and noise were gone!

Extreme disappointment at changes

To try to recover from my extreme disappointment, I rushed to the corner drug store in the Hotel Building where I drank so many fountain drinks back then. It was still there but I hardly recognized it!

What's going on here? Am I on Candid Camera or something? I batted my eyes trying to bring some sense to what I was feeling and seeing!

Good old days crumbled as though by earthquake

I don't know how many nickels I plugged in the nickelodeon back in the good old days and listened to the song "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas." I about wore out the record! I didn't recognize any of the soda-jerks!

Panicking, I double-timed a few blocks north to make sure my one remaining landmark, the Los Angeles USO Canteen was still in place! Everything else had crumbled as though by a 6.4 earthquake! My heart was in my mouth for fear of what I was going to see and experience. I almost didn't want to know. My pace slowed as I approached the familiar door. Sure enough -- my disappointment was complete! I closed my eyes as though trying to shield myself from a crumbling dream world!

Dreams are elusive and fleeting

Even though I was as 'mean and green' as the day I had finished basic training in late 1942, I began to realize how foolish I had been. I learned an important lesson of life that afternoon as I stood there choking back waves of hurt. Dreams are elusive and fleeting and need a strong foundation. They are seldom built on good times. Good times are for memories.

I got a hold of myself, cleared my throat of a few lumps and tried to develop a learned military stride as I headed for the train station -- "I left my heart at the Stage Door Canteen"... but ONLY in the form of memories of some good times -- nothing more....
