Carol Perkins: Speaking to a group of high acheving women

She told her husband what to expect. She was right
Next earlier column: Carol Perkins: Valentine's Day - What sweet memories Posted February 16, 2014.

By Carol Perkins

When Guy (my husband) told me that he was speaking to group of female business leaders at a company conference in Atlanta in a few week, I rolled my eyes. Not because this was a group of women, but because it was a group of women.

"How many?"

Colby Pickett had a unique way of putting things

A memorable quote

By Roger D Smith DMD

It seems as if I have known Colby and Wayne (the Picketts) all my life. The great value of growing up in a small town are the memories of good folks like this couple and so many of the wonderful characters that this community has had over the years. No one was a stranger to Colby.

I have heard many speeches over the years by some famous people and can recall only a few quotes, but the one I will never forget is one Colby spoke to his "BOYS" [Larry Legg, David Upchurch,and me] one morning at Rexall. This concerned fishing in Florida but could be applied to anything and everything Colby expounded upon. I quote: " I'm going to tell you about it, I don't understand it, but I'm going to explain it to you". That was Colby. I thought the world of him. --Roger D Smith DMD

Happy Tail: Lucas, the black puppy

For some reason, black dogs are the last to adopted at shelters and rescues. It's a mystery why, to Peg Schaeffer. Lucas was late to be adopted, but now he and the Churchills of Russell County have discovered each other, and neither dog nor family could be happier with the arrangement.
The next previous Happy Tail: Happy Tail: Parvovirus prevention

By Peg Schaeffer
Sugarfoot Farm Rescue

In the fall of 2010 a young man showed up at the fence with a black puppy he had found on the side of the road. He introduced himself as Lucas. He worked for Jimmy Reliford and saw our dogs in the yard whenever he drove by. He wanted to know if we would take the pup in but wanted to make sure he would not be euthanized. I assured him that all dogs that come to us have a home here until they find a home. I told him he was welcome to check on him when he was in the area. He left the pup and we named him Lucas.

JIM: Ms. Lunn critiques the courtroom (and the inhabitants therein), 1906

In 1906, the settlement of the estate of very wealthy County Judge J.W. Butler, who also served two terms as county court clerk, after which he embarked in the mercantile business, was the hot topic. The Butler Will case, pitting his wife, the former Miss Bettie Walker, defending the will, against an adopted daughter, Mrs. Grace Bradshaw, who sought to have all wills annulled. It's a fascinating account by skillfully compiled by Jim, and featuring the keen observations of Ms. Sally Lunn in the Adair County News.

By JIM

Ms. Lunn critiques the courtroom (and the inhabitants therein),1906

Background (in which a scorecard and sharp pencil will help the reader keep up with the participants in the court case which precipitated the critique):

The opening days of 1906 saw Columbia and Adair County deeply interested in the courthouse proceedings occasioned by the will(s) of Judge J.W. Butler. He had passed from this sphere of action in the summer of 1905, a few months after constructing a will in January, another in February, and a third one in March.
