KY Afield Outdoors: Improve your waterfowl shooting

A few helpful hints
Click on headline for complete column with photo(s)

By Lee McClellan, Associate Editor
Kentucky Afield Outdoors

FRANKFORT, KY - It happens to even the most seasoned waterfowl hunter. At dawn on a mid-winter day, a gaggle of Canada geese comes honking into your decoys on a farm pond. They look like flying watermelons with wings, a long neck and a black and white head.

You pop up from your homemade blind and excitedly shoot three times at one seemingly close goose. Expecting to hear the thump that follows a successful shot, the big goose flies away instead.

Letter to Editor: Agrees with Chris Knifley

Lee Ann Sullivan writes:
Well said Chris Knifley, I strongly agree with your point of view. The Columbia City Police needs to be commended for their services to the city without always asking for assistance. Maybe all elected and appointed individuals' salaries, including benefits and bonuses need be brought to the eye of the public, even though they are open record. Citizens might be surprised how your tax dollars are being spent by city and county boards, which are not risking life or limb. - Lee Ann Sullivan

Jon Halsey: What Ralph said was not an attack on anyone

If I were to find myself in a serious budget crises and my CPA simply advised me to "earn more money", I doubt I would be telling my wife she needed to get a better job, but I would take a serious and hard look at all aspects of my total expenses and do without some of the things I would grievously miss. It seems to me that this is what RRW is making a case for. The original letter was addressing the Police Department only because of the public statements made by the Chief and was not an attack on that department but rather an indictment of the entire system which gives all indications of seeming to think that they can fund whatever they desire from some mysterious unending source of wealth. - JON HALSEY
Comment about: We need the Paul Harvey of the story: City budget

By Jon Halsey
Personal commentary

Living in the Greater Metropolitan Area of Knifley, I don't have a dog in this fight. However, RRW raises some good points and the responses seem to be "ad hominem" rather that addressing the serious budget issues he raised.

Review: Jr. & Donna recommend Journey to the Manger

Willie M Feese Jr writes:
Hey Ed. Donna and I had the pleasure of driving through the Journey to the Manger last evening. We were accompanied by three of our grandchildren. Although the temperature was in the lower 20s the participants of this program were happy and presented the events of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with great scenes and wonderful props. We were extremely pleased and would recommend the event for every family in Adair County. Thanks, --Willie M Feese Jr

Troy Grider agrees with Chris Knifley on police compensation

Troy Grider writes:
Dear CM, I am not in law enforcement nor have I ever been, but I appreciate the fact that these guys and gals work hard for my family's protection every day. I completely agree with Chris, but I think that our officers are much underpaid for their performance and for what they have to put up with. It is sad though that they work hard to bring criminals in off the streets only to see a broken justice system slap them on the wrists and turn them loose to the public's demise. - Troy Grider

A story behind the obituary - Martha Lena Burdette Rou

JIM saw the obituary - maybe this one: Martha Burdette Rou, 92, Adair Co., KY (1921-2013) or another - he knows the news so often before we do, and remember a touching drama from World War II, and has compiled this "Story Behind the Obituary," - CM

By JIM

"Born, to the wife of S.M. Burdette, on Tuesday night, the 12th inst., a daughter. The mother and baby are doing finely." (The Adair County News, Tuesday, July 19, 1921.)

On Saturday, the 5th day of July, 1941, Miss Martha Lena Burdette of Columbia became the bride of Mr. Louis Arnold Rich, a native of Clay County, Tenn., a resident of Monroe County, Ky., and a former student of Lindsey Wilson College. The ceremony took place "at the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. R.B. Patton, and Mr. Patton, 2008 Kenilworth Court, in Louisville" and and the bride was exactly a week short of her 20th birthday.

Letter: In response to commentary regarding City Police

We need the Paul Harvey of the story: City budget by Ralph Waggener

By Chris Knifley
Personal Commentary by the Writer

Some points are well stated by Mr. Waggener, and I agree with his points regarding following a budget. However, I say that posting a police officer's salary and benefits, and then ranting about the burden of retirement benefits place on the taxpayers is not only an attack, but also a laser guided attack.
