Drivers ignore posted 35 mph on Liberty Road/Fairground Street

Wayne armitage writes:
The speed limit on 206 is 35 mph. When you come into town and cross Russell Creek from the top of the hill to Green Hills Road, there are signs posted at the top of the hill before Russell Creek that say 35, yet drivers come down the hill at 55 or 60 mph. If the city Police or Sheriff's department would start running radar on that stretch of road it would slow down traffic. It would cut down on any accidents at 206 and Green Hills Road. If Drivers would learn to stop and look at STOP SIGNS it would help. - Wayne Armitage

Tiffany Kessler shares Papa Ben Hadley's Christmas story

My grandfather Ben Hadley has been gone for almost 20 years. During the last part of his life he did something his family will be grateful for, generations to come. He jotted down his memoirs in several old spiral bound notebooks. "Papa Ben" was born in 1914 in Cundiff, KY (the Melson Ridge community of Adair County). His story is like that of many other folks from the time period - one of ten children born into a hard working farm family.

The following is a Christmas memory from when he was a young boy around five years old...it begins with a couple new arrivals in the fall of the year (around 1920).

By Ben Hadley

One day dad came in from plowing his old mare, puts her in the stable and feeds her corn. He came to the house to get his dinner and when he goes back to get her, she hadn't had time to eat, she had found her a little colt. Back to the house dad came telling what a pretty colt old Sallie had found, said "I told her that she could have the rest of the day off." [A well-deserved day off for the mare considering a good colt, when sold to the "man in town that buys livestock", paid for each of the children a new pair of shoes that year]

CM 7-County residents in Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell & Taylor Counties of South Central Kentucky are in the middle of sauger fishing paradise, with increasing numbmers of the tasty fish in waters downstream of Green River, Lake Cumberland, and Barren River dams. - CM. Click on headline for story with photo(s). (Reader comments, photos for Epicurean Kentuckian sauger dishes welcome)
This is the ninth and final installment of a series of articles titled "Fall Fishing Festival" profiling the productive fishing on Kentucky's lakes, rivers and streams in fall.

By Lee McClellan, Associate Editor
Kentucky Afield Outdoors, a KY Fish & Wildlife magazine

FRANKFORT, KY - Sauger hover just above bottom right now downstream of dams, waiting for a stunned shad to tumble into their orbit. Their numbers will grow in proportion to the downward slide of the thermometer.

The peak concentration of sauger below dams coincides with the coldest weather of the year. Sauger readily bite in water temperatures below 40 degrees, the most reliable winter fish of all.
