The eternal question: Why deep the topsoil on top of The Ridge

Comments re photo 53194 Happy Tail Horses grazing in high hills of S Central Adair Co

By Billy Joe Fudge

Inquiring minds need to know and I have a question for any of your geologist followers or maybe even those who are considered wantabe geologists.

Growing up on The Ridge I've, as I am accustomed to do, noticed a couple of geological anomalies that I believe are associated but for which I have no explanation.

Being fit: Sedentary lifestyles change everything

Comments re article 64698 Carol Perkins I have joined the world of physical fitness

By Linda Marcum Waggener

Good luck to Carol with her tracking, it's supposed to be very helpful. I learn that over and over each time I track exercise and suddenly realize how much I don't do yet!!

My very trim Mom and I were discussing exercise one day and the differences in childhood habits. Dad brought home our first television when I was in grade school and it was the first thing my brother and I did when we got in from school, grab a snack and be still in front of the entertainment.

In comparison, Mom said that when she was child needing an after school snack, she climbed a pear tree or apple tree or cherry tree and snacked.

Then she followed her older siblings around the farm "bugging them," moving along with their work on chores, exercising her limbs and her mouth which they always teased her about.

With today's sedentary lifestyles, I guess it takes something like a FitBit to help us see how much is yet to be done. - Linda

Forest F. Harvey: Harveys have been in education for many years

Forest Harvey's father Fred Harvey was a minister, his mother Mary a teacher. Memories of her career are recounted in this fascinating column: From earning a lifetime teaching diploma from Lindsey Wilson College, to having two Greenup County students drafted out of eight grade for service in World War II, to dangerous situations where Mary Harvey was stabbed (once at Rocky Hill School in Adair County), and other incidents similar to those in the memory banks of many retired educators in Kentucky. He writes now from retirement in Florida.

By Forest F. Harvey

"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." - Henry Adams

If you have read some of my articles you know that my mother, Mary Abston Harvey, taught school for 24 years in Kentucky. Her last year at Lindsey Wilson College she was awarded a lifetime Teaching Certificate.

My grandfather, Abner Harvey, was elected School Trustee. He "placed" her in Rocky Hill School in Adair County, for $65 a month, where she taught for two years. Then she taught in Wayne, Green, Rowan, and Clinton counties.

In Keyhoe, Greenup County, during world War Ii, my father, Reverend Fred Harvey, was teh pastor of a church and my mother was the teacher of the school. It was said in the area that if you wanted to get religion or an education, you had to get it from Fred or Mary Harve. She had 65 students - first grade through eighth grade. There she had two boys who were drafted to the military out of the eighth grade.

Maury suggests putting art in windows of vacant buildings

Shamarie's and other works could beautify Downtown Columbia

Maury Lewis writes:
If we could put some of the beautiful pictures that have been on Columbia Magazine and art work of the talented artist on display in the front windows of the empty buildings down on the square it would help beautify Downtown.

Or if the city or county could purchase one of the building and turn it in to an art gallery. There area a lot of talented photographer's and artists in this small town to fill a good size building. - Maury Lewis

Better specificity about Horses Grazing in High Pasture picture

Comments re photo 53194 Happy Tail Horses grazing in high hills of West Adair Co KY

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Happy Tail: Horses grazing in high hills of (((((West))))) Adair Co., KY

Probably be more accurate to say South Central or Southern.

This photo was taken from the top of the Ordell Fudge Hill and is looking across the Eastern Flatwoods and Petitt's Fork of Russell Creek into the Greater Gadberry Metropolis which stretches from the Columbia City Limits on Hwy 704 to Fairplay.

- Billy Joe Fudge
As usual, you're right on the location: M' mind must've meandered off to Meatskin Road, a might more in the near Metcalfe area, hence western area of Adair County. Next time you look, "West" will be changed to "South Central." - EW

Horse only animal clearly designed by God to carry a rider

Miss Donna Rieder writes:
Humans ride all sorts of animals: camels, elephants, ostriches even! But the horse is the only animal clearly designed by God specifically to carry a rider, effortlessly and speedily. I grew up on horses, and one of my favorite things was to race across an open field, arms outstretched, wind in my face, eyes watering....ah, those were the days! --Miss Donna

Carol Perkins: I have joined the world of physical fitness

Now she's synchronized with her computer. And family can spy on her activities - she can't even exaggerate the 2,000 steps a day she takes when the rule is 10,000. But it has benefits. She now knows how much exercise she doesn't do each day.
Next earlier column - Carol Perkins: Five things on To-Do list for 2014 Posted January 12 , 2013.

By Carol Perkins

I have joined the world of physical fitness. This has been a long time coming and would never have arrived if not for my son and daughter-in-law who decided that I was not getting enough exercise (really?) or burning enough calories (no kidding) to be physically fit (which I'm not).

Tom Chaney: The Certainty of Joy

Of Writers And Their Books: "The Certainty of Joy". Tom says, " I stand in awe at Ms [P. D.] James ability to draw the reader into the mind of her characters and into the complexity of events." This column first appeared 18 January 2009.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: "No Escape from the Unhappiness Machine"

By Tom Chaney

"The Certainty of Joy"

I found the newest P. D. James novel wrapped up under the Christmas tree with my name on it -- a rare treat, indeed. Ms James, born in 1920, is knocking at ninety's door. That makes this new Adam Dalgliesh mystery all the more a treasure, for there can only be a limited number to follow.

Happy Tail: A tribute to horses

Horses have long history of serving humans. Their sacrifice, particularly in wartime has been super heroic. They bond with people as closely as any other animal. Peg Schaeffer writes of examples from history and from her own experience to plead for the utmost in humane treatment. Click on headline for complete column with photo(s)
The next earlier Peg Schaeffer column: Happy Tail: If you can't adopt, sponsor or provide foster care Posted January 12, 2014.

By Peg Schaeffer

HRTV had a very interesting program about the horses' integral part in the Civil War. Horses and mules were used in all branches of both armies during the Civil War. They were used to pull supply wagons, artillery, and soldiers. Between both armies there were over 130,000 horses in active duty. Many were lost due to incapacity and malnutrition. Others were lost on the battlefield. By the end of the war 1,500,000 (one million five hundred thousand) horses and mules died.

By Chuck Hinman

My Sixteenth Birthday

This afternoon, my stroll down memory lane took me to this incident which happened over 70 years ago. I'm surprised I remember it and in detail.

My brother Bob was two years older than I and "lorded" it over me from the time I came out of Mom's womb until January 19, 1938. That was my 16th birthday, the first birthday I was able to keep Bob from administering a birthday whipping on me.
