Hilda Willis Jenkins has fond memories of childhood visit with Oklahoma kin

Genealogy: Naylors-Jenkins-Lindseys-Willises-Waggeners, Walkers & Whites
Comments re photo 54049 Oklahomans doing family research at Adair Co Public Library

Hilda Jenkins writes:
My Mother and Dad (Ralph Waggener Willis, son of Effie Waggener), along with my Aunt Kathreen Willis White, did travel and visit in Oklahoma with Nell Naylor Lindsey and her husband. They, in turn, visited us in Columbia. I have fond memories of their being there, but not sure how many times. Think there was a snow storm, and they had to stay longer than they intended . . . the Rook games provided fun for all. Also, I remember T Owen Naylor, Jay Frank Walker, his wife, Katie (?) and their daughter, Jaydene (she did spend the night at our house at least once, maybe more . . . we were close to the same age). Some great folks, some great memories!!!! This is just off the "top of my head," but I do have pictures of several of them. Remember the Lindsey's son was very tall, Aunt Kathreen (short). We have a picture where he is holding his arm straight from his side, with Aunt K's being under it . . . there was a Dr Bruce Naylor, either Nell's brother or nephew. Would loved to have visited with the folks!!! --Hilda Jenkins
Thanks Cousin Hilda - There have been many calls from Adair County kin who missed seeing the Naylors, but they've been happy to know that they plan an encore visit, may in a few month. For non kinfolks: The writer was the last graduate, ever, of Columbia High School. Her father, Ralph Waggener Willis, was a long time mayor of Columbia, in whose administration natural gas came to Adair County. "Aunt Kathreen" was the wife of A.P. White, one-time President of Lindsey Wilson College. The Naylors and Lindseys are Oklahoma Kin. - Eddie

Tom Chaney: Joseph Alexander Altsheler of Three Springs

Of Writers And Their Books: Joseph Alexander Altsheler of Three Springs. Tom notes that Altsheler was a stickler for authentic history, Indian lore, and geographic details. A careful reading of his work reveals his detailed knowledge of the Kentucky country of his birth in Hart County, just north of the Metcalfe County line and not so far from Green County. He attended Three Springs School, Liberty College in Glasgow, KY, and Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. This column first appeared 20 March 2005.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: Mrs. Williams' Splendid Table

By Tom Chaney

Joseph Alexander Altsheler of Three Springs

When the news got out that Joseph A. Altsheler had died in New York City in 1919, the story is told that hundreds of school children of the city filled the New York Public Library carrying his books in their arms.

Whether or not that story is true, it is illustrative of the esteem and affection, which greeted the masterful storyteller from Three Springs.

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. Snipes, Remember Them

Chuck Hinman: Snipes, Remember Them. Chuck recounts that at about 11 or 12 he became obsessed watching men light up and go through the rigmarole of smoking.

By Chuck Hinman

Snipes, Remember Them

I have written mostly savory accounts of myself as an average Nebraska farm boy growing up during the depression and economically depressed years of the 1930s. One of the things which is absent from my writings is how the desire to smoke possessed my life in those days.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Sorted Right or Wrong

Sorted right and wrong
- a sonnet for the birthday of Paul Richmond
It's not too late for conquering the world
when brushes wait war paint to rouge the skin
and strokes display a way to pride unfurl
while canvassing adventures still within.

It's not too soon for packing up the past
whose images made friezes from bold youth
and pathways easily the paths outlast
while printing labels that proclaim old truth.

It's always time for understanding more
where all old things seek slings to move along
and countless new push through loud habit's roar
while odds and ends are sorted right and wrong.

It's never over while another breath
into unfolding future pushes death.

- Robert Stone, 22 March 2014

Carol Perkins: Sometimes plans change

When a decision to go to a semi-finals turned out to be devilishly fraught with mishaps, she and her friend decided to miss the finals - but that change of plans had a twist of its own. Click on headline for the complete story
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Straight talk Posted March 23, 2014.

By Carol Perkins

Sometimes plans change. My plans to do nothing a few weekends ago changed drastically when my good friend Connie called from her home in Louisville to see if Guy and I were going to be home over the weekend. We were. Her school, Butler High School, was playing in the state semi-finals at Diddle and she wanted us to go with her and then she would come to Edmonton and spend the night. Guy had rather dig worms in sand than to go to a girl's high school basketball tourney (no offense to girls because he wouldn't want to go to a boy's game either.)
