Diana Long: Thinks its a shame ACPC won't have Open House

Diana Long writes:
I think its a shame that 5 year olds starting school for the very first time cannot even attend an open house at their school to see what their school looks like or to even know where to go.

To an older child who has attended any school this may not make much difference, but to a child who's never been to school this could be terrifying and make for a bad first day.

If the school isn't finished then the solution would be to delay opening day just like it has been done in the past when the other "new" schools were built and not finished on time for their scheduled opening day.

It's sad that the children won't even have a lunchroom to eat in or a gym to play in. Schools are closed so many times throughout the year for so many unnecessary reasons why not delay a few days for a real legit reason? - Diana Long

She endures injustice of fast time; wishes Taylor Co. would change

Pining for Central Time, once-a-Columbian-alway-a-Columbian Martha Berry tells of yet other hardships living as an Ex-PAT in a strange land: Martha Berry displays LWC Bumper Sticker in Campbellsville, KY

Martha Berry writes:
It took me a while to realize that Somerset is in ET and have to go through CT in order to get there.

I did some Church work with a lady from Louisville several years ago and on a post card on which we were finalizing some plans for School of Mission at LWC, her closing sentence was "How do you know what time it is"?

Even through I have been back home several years and have gone through the international date line almost daily when Mother was so sick in Columbia and even now when I go to Columbia frequently, I still occasionally get it backwards. Wish we were on Central Time. --Martha Berry

The mystery flowering tree: It's a Sumac, KY Color writer says

Comments re photo 50774 What is this tree?

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

I believe what you have here is an old fashioned, intergalactic, conundrumic mystery of almost mythic proportions. However and just short of having Mr. Spock do a mind-meld on you and Mrs. Marcum, I will attempt to wring an interpretation from this puzzling riddle.
