Wants to see more activity at Giles House Festival

Comments re article 12420 Annual Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles Festival

Barb Krebbs writes:
I have gone to the festival each year for about the past 10 years. I am debating on whether to come this year or not. The past couple years there has really not been very many booths and we drive from Nashville, Indiana. Is there a way that the advertising for this event might be boosted to encourage more interest? I really enjoyed going and planning this event each year but like I said, for the past two or three years it really doesn't have much activity to spark the interest in driving that far. I am a great fan of Janice Holt Giles and have read all her books so it is not that I am being critical. I just would like to see more activity going on during the day. - Barb Krebbs
Barb Krebbs: We hope you do come to the festival. CM tries to post every Event announcement we receive for the Giles Society, and will this year. - CM

Terry Pyles: He was Kentuckian with heart the size of Texas

Teresa Shepherd Hill writes:
Mr. Waggener: Terry Lee never met a stranger. He was always laughing and had a heart as big as Texas. Many, many people loved him and he will always hold a place in our hearts. Terry drove a tractor trailer all across the country for 37 years. He loved traveling. His earliest friends from Columbia, before he left for Texas, nicknamed him "Lightning" because he was so fast. His friends in Texas nicknamed him "Hillbilly" He will be missed by so many. - Teresa Shepherd Hill

ACMS students now using iPads courtesy DonorsChoose donors

Click on headline for complete story, photo(s)

By Shamarie Claiborne
News from Adair County School District

In June of this year Adair County Middle School 7th grade science teacher Denise Grant asked folks to support her and her classroom this year by sponsoring the purchase of iPads through Her campaign was a huge success and she has just received them.

Ms. Grant has created and produced a workbook of her own design that incorporates technology based lessons. As you can see from the pictures the new devices are being put to good use and the students love them.

Ms. Grant asked that I pass on the following:
"In today's lesson we used our donated iPads to scan QR codes that I created for our books. Students were taken to a website that 'quizzed' them on picking out the different variables involved in an experiment. This was a great way to incorporate student use of technology and review the current content being covered in class. As they finished, I was bombarded with questions like "Are there more sites like this?" and "Can we do it again?". A teachers dream... total student engagement! Thank you so much to all the donors who contributed waaaay back in June who helped make this possible!"

Fish is not the only thing in Hardscratch, Maury says

Comments re article 61720 Comment Shell now go to Hardscratch for those famed fish fries

Maury Lewis writes:
Fish frying time is not the only time to eat at Hardscratch store, they have really good hamburgers and everyone of them are cooked fresh and they don't sit under a heat lamp and so are the French fries. That is where we take friends and family when they come to visit us. melewi --Maury Lewis
Thanks, Maury You and I knew that, but if we don't keep some of what we know under our hats we'll run the risk of ruining a good thing. Hardscratch will be found out by so many people it'll turn into just another Gatlinbburg, or worse, you'll give Ken Hill the Big Head. (Let's just keep Hardscratch our secret, for now.) - EW

Kayaking: Another favorite spot is Green River Lake

Kathy Jo Powell writes:
As a fairly new resident of Adair County, I have fell in love with the Corbins Bend Road area. Our family is within walking distance to a creek that feeds into Green River Lake. We do a lot of hiking, bird watching and photography. What a great place this area would be to kayak and bird watch. Adair County is a true nature's paradise. --Kathy Jo Powell

Comment: She'll now go to Hardscratch for those famed fish fries

Comments re photo 51211 The Simple Life in Hardscratch Now Smoke Free

Barbara Armitage writes:
Great, Fantastic, Wonderful!!!! We have wanted to join in on their famous Fish Fries for years but were unable to do so because of the smoking situation. You can count on the folks a Tucker's Station for dinner. Hopefully more restaurants will follow their example and I won't have to cook every night. --Barbara Armitage
Thanks, Barbara Armitage: Voting with your dollars is great. But the biggest reason to go - now that the smoking issue is out of the way - is that Ken does catfish right, and the folks you see there, all having a great time. Mrs. Marcum and I were there last Friday, and she ran into a great friend originally from Metcalfe County! It was old home day for her. And boy, was the place crowded - that's another good sign of good eating. Mrs. Marcum loved the food, by the way, and that's another standard in our family. - EW

She fell in love with kayaking after one outing on the lake

Michele Foster writes:
If there is a local kayaking group I would love to be a part, too. My brother-in-law introduced me to it by letting us borrow a kayak to take to the lake this summer. I fell in love and would go a lot more but dont know a lot of people that kayak so I am in the same boat. Anyone intrested in getting a group together can contact me at 270-805-1299. I know a couple of others that would probably be intrested. - Michele Foster

Kayaking on Russell Creek: East 80 favorite starting point

Mitzi Bault writes:
My grandsons are on Russell Creek a lot. Most of the time they put in on East 80 and Kayak to our house, NAPA, Milltown or even to Green County. Sometimes they fish or just have a day of fun. - Mitzi Bault
Thanks: From the interest Michele Foster has drawn after her photos of a float trip, kayaking Russell Creek appears to already be a favorite pastime of many in Adair County. Thanks for this note. I wonder if your grandsons would share some times and a few tips for kayaking newbies and wannabes. - EW (Uncle Ed)
