Kentucky Color - They do not sow or reap

Click on headline for essay with photo(s)

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

In a parking lot in Elizabethtown Saturday I was presented with a modern rendition of the well used Bible verse, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they"?

What a joy it is to see nature adapt and function as it was created to function, even in this most modern and most unnatural ecosystem.

Carol Perkins: Friday night lights!

Friday nights mean high school football. This is a happy time, and marks the beginning of the 2013 school year. Football is a huge tradition in Barren County and Glasgow, the writer says, and when Metcalfe played them, the outcome wasn't always glorious for the Metcalfe Hornets. "But the maroon and white stood tall. "Scoring was like winning to us parents!" she remembers. She remembers too, giants from Green County. Sometimes games with the Dragons would end with a few conflicts and signs of poor sportsmanship among fans and maybe some players, but never was a game with Green County a dull one.
On Tuesday, August 20, 2013, 10am-12pm noon CT, on 99.1 Susan and Carol-Unscripted, our topic will be the history of Metcalfe County football with guest Harold Chambers, Bruce Keel, Larry Harbison, present coach Fred Harbison, and a member of that first team in 1959, Larry Cooksey. We will talk about those "glory" days of football in our county, as well as the teams we played. Perhaps our conversation will spark your own Fight Night Memories under the lights. - CAROL PERKINS. The Next earlier Carol Perkins Column: Carol Perkins: From the Beach House, Part II

By Carol Perkins

Friday Night Lights! How quickly the football season comes around and all that it brings. Area marching bands are putting together their competition shows, the cheerleaders are working on their routines and making up new football cheers that never can quite bring the same response as the plain old "DEFENSE" and "WE WANT A TOUCHDOWN", and the pep club girls and guys are organizing their crazy outfits for each game from painting their bodies to decorating hats and shirts. This is a happy time, and marks the beginning of the 2013 school year.

Waiting in the doctor's office

In 1994 after retiring, I was accompanist for the Phil-Four men's quartet. We all had employment ties with Phillips Petroleum Company -- hence the name -- Phil-Four. We had many engagements in Tulsa -- a one-hour's drive from Bartlesville.

Roast Pig and Charles Lamb

I love reading other people's mail. I like the sense of peeking into another's life unbidden. If they are not among the dead and are apt to catch me at it -- all the better. But enough to know that I'm eavesdropping -- even after sixty or ninety years.

Some years ago we acquired some letters that had been written from a Horse Cave father to his daughter off in college in 1918. Much of the content was banal. Often there was a reference to closing the letter to get it in the last mail of the day. Most were postmarked "RPO."
