We owe many thanks to the teachers of this school and the many other country school teachers that made a difference in the lives of the then young people who went on to make great and outstanding citizens. - GEORGE RICE

By George Rice

In the accompanying picture, Bobby D. Loy stands in front of the Yellowhammer School House which has long been closed and reminiscence of the early days of his life, when he walked through the woods in a well worn path to start his first years of education.

One of the unique things that Calvin Aaron shares about that school building is that it still has the original paint and it still shines as if it was almost a new paint job. No ones seem to understand why the paint remains so intact.

Some of the dedicated teachers that gave their time and love to the school are ,as shared by Aileen Aaron, Coolidge Grant, Norene Rosenbaum, Stanley Rosenbaum, Violet Rosenbaum, Irene Reece, Wilma Marshall, Welcome Hammond, Noah Loy, Virgil Bryant, Joe Morgan, McIva Hale, Allene Aaron.

COF - Ignorance of 'talpa bean pod use betrays City Slickerism

COF writes:
Shucks Ed, jest ask enny one who growed up as a "hoosier" you'll learn real quick 'bout the uses of "talpa" beans. After selling the 'talpa' worms by the buckets full at a penny a piece, ya jest lazed round under the cool 'talpa' shade till late summer, early fall when the beans turned choklit brown. Jest as the Grand Designer planned it, corn silks were also dry, brown en ready at the same time.

A deft young'n could split the bean long wise on one side, use his trusty Barlow to clean out what little pith remained and replace it with the 'propriate amount of dried corn silk, head behind the barn or other outta sight site, sit back, light up and revel in the "wickedness" of it all.

"Don't know of any practical use.." indeed! City Slicker.

Agrees with life lesson in My Big Bicycle Wreck

Kathryn Miller writes:
I completely agree. Too many parents act like we should wrap our kids up in bubble wrap and never let them have any fun just because they might get hurt. We learn better when we get hurt doing something because we learn how to get better at what we are doing - literally and medaphorically - and how to get back up and shake it off.

Society has even taken kids sports and changed them into a boring game just because someone might get hurt.

My little girl plays and runs and gets dirty and yes gets hurt sometimes while doing it. But you know what, she has learned to get up and go on like a normal kid should.

My personal opinion is also that people in general have turned their kids into whimps who don't know how to deal with life when it hands the a raw deal. - Kathryn Miller

JIM wonders about Willock Building

JIM
> I wonder if the following excerpt refers to the Willock building pictured on CM today (Sunday, September 15, 2013). It appeared in the Campbellsville newsletter published in the July 1, 1903 edition of the Adair County News. "'Our Joe" Willock, the energetic and successful grocerman, has contracted with C.R. Hoskins for the building of a 50x60 three story brick business house, across the alley from his present place of business. It is intended for the handling and packing of all kinds of poultry, eggs, etc. The building is leased by Grinstead & Co., Louisville, for five years. Mr.Willock already has a large two story poultry house leased to the same company."

Reflections from my past: My big bicycle wreck

Any kid from the the 1900s who ever wreck a bike on Jamestown Hill can emphathize with Chris Murphy's experience going over the big Charlie Morrison Hill, below Chance, KY
The next earlier Chris Murphy Story: Reflections from my Past: My First Driving Experience. Posted August 23, 2013

By Chris Murphy

As children growing up one thing our parents try to do is protect us from the dangers of the world. It has gotten to the point though that we are afraid to let our children do anything at all for the fear that something may happen to them. They are put on drugs for ADHD if they are too active in school. Even riding a bicycle they need proper shoes, knee pads, elbow pads, and a helmet. We put as much padding and protection on our children as we can, often going to extremes.

Happy Tails - A second chance at love

Apparently someone thought that Sugarfoot Farm is an animal dumping site and that Keith and I are the Rockefellers, Peg Schaeffer says, after a big census increase at Sugarfoot Farm Rescue during Labor Day. In this column, several dog and cat stories of animals who need a "Second Chance at love. And there's an important note on why cats should not be dumped at a dog rescue.

Next previous Happy Tail: Dog's best friend, Ariana Posted September 8, 2013.

By Peg Schaeffer

At three o'clock Wednesday morning I got a call from our neighbor that two of our dogs were in the road. He works nights and said he almost hit them as he was driving home. I got out of bed and went to check. There in the road were two dogs, but they didn't belong to us. There was a bigger dog with a small dog. The big dog's eyes shined in the dark and he growled at me. The little dog wanted to come to me and would approach me but as he got close he would return to the safety of the big dog's side. As I talked to them trying to earn their confidence out of the grass came a half grown cat. The cat came up to me and rubbed on my legs so I picked him up and petted him. He rubbed his face on mine and purred.

For several years I had been aiming to find the Loveless Cafe', and this seemed as good a time as any.
