Sugarfoot Farm has dogs of all shapes, sizes, colors and personalities. We have indoor dogs for those who need a quiet companion. We have dogs that will go hiking and jogging with you and on trips to the lake. We have dogs that will fetch a ball all day long if that's what you want to do. Some of our dogs love to go for rides and would love to go traveling with you. The young dogs are looking for a family to grow old with.

By Kim Goodin

COLUMBIA, KY (Sunday, October 6, 2013) - We had a wonderful time in The Lord today.

The Goodins shared their beautiful music praising God. Michael Helm preached a powerful message about our Savior referencing Isaiah 43:8-12. May God continue to bless in ministries of both. We had delicious lunch (Thanks to all the wonderful cooks.) in our newly renovated basement.

We praise God for providing a way to see this project through. Thank you to our committee members and church members for their patience during this process.

The accompanying picture is of my 90 year old Grandma, Grace Feese waiting in one of our classrooms for her lunch. We spoil her a little. Kim Goodin

Happy 91st Birthday, James Howard Young

Happy 91st birthday James Howard Young, my former teacher and a co conspirator to all of us who love tradition and preservation with a passion. My mom, Geniece Leftwich Marcum, decided it would be fitting to bring back a story done in her little magazine Senior Quest from some years ago and to reprint a few photos from our treasured visit. - Linda Reid Marcum Waggener

James Howard Young in 1995
History with devotion, humor and occasional irreverence

This could be a story about James Howard Young and his famous Kentucky headhunters sons, Richard and Fred, who are booked solid to tour straight through the summer. It could detail a father's deep sense of pride in his boys' well-balanced lives, putting family and home first above the great fame they enjoy.

We might talk about Richard who married Cindy Love and their son, Jon Fred, now ten, or we could also talk about Fred who married Martha Devore and their little girl Rachel who celebrated her second birthday this spring. But that's the story of the Kentucky Headhunters musicians, a story we'll plan to take up on another day when we can enjoy it over a "Slaw Burger and a bottle of Ski"

Carol Perkins: Fall Break

'Fall Break is over for some students and just beginning this week for others. Soon Thanksgiving will give a few more days off and then Christmas break. Time waits for no man. How true that is. One thing is for sure, a break revives all of us and causes us to approach our jobs with a more relaxed enthusiasm. I long break to Maui would really inspire me!' - CAROL PERKINS
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: The search for the next truck. Posted September 29, 2013

By Carol Perkins

Fall Break. Only during my last few years of teaching did I have a fall break and I counted down the days. After a few months together every day both teacher and students need a break. Not going anywhere was often as appealing to me as taking off on a trip. Of course, I was older then and being at home was more satisfying than it was when I was younger and the kids were younger and Guy was more willing to load up the car and head out in the wee hours of the night so we could be at the beach by early light. Naturally, we were worn out by the time we arrived and worn out by the time we got back home, but we made many wonderful memories.
