W.M. Feese Jr Poem: Duck Dynasty

Duck Dynasty
Poetry by W.M. Feese, Jr.
I'm sitting here watching Duck Dynasty
on A & E T.V.
They are a special family
at least so it seems to me

Uncle Si, he is my favorite
Tho his logic is sometimes feint
He always has an answer
Even if the truth it ain't

"Hey Jack" is one of his expressons
His use of it is frequent
and watching all these Godly men
is happy time well spent

Phil and Kay are down to earth
unlike most millionaires.
It seems they lve a simple life
with hardly any cares.

Willie is the C.E.O.
and there's Jase who defies his commands.
There's Jep and Al, the other two sons
That round out the Robertson Clan

Their show Duck Dynasty
has unbelievers up in the air
But oh, how refreshing it is to see
Each episode end in prayer
Written by the poet, W.M Feese, Jr., January 14, 2014

Mike Watson: Early Roads and Bridges of Adair County, KY

Columbia reputedly built around crossing of two bison trails. This narrative includes efforts by local entrepreneurs to make Columbia a transportation hub utilizing ferries and fords with turnpikes to Greensburg, to New Haven to Burkesville as well as to Monticello and Knoxville, TN.

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

A major trail from the Bluegrass into Tennessee passed through what is now Adair County. Early pioneers followed the well-defined natural roads made by the North American bison. Two bison trails crossed near the where the Town Branch crosses Jamestown Street in present day Columbia. The town reputedly sprang up where it did due to the close proximity to the trails. Where the trails crossed creeks and rivers, there were natural fords useful for pioneers.

Fords across the Green and Cumberland Rivers and larger creeks like Russell and Crocus were used by the pioneers and their descendants and some are likely in use today. David Doak and Vandiver Banks ran ferries across the Green River at an early date.
