Chance, KY store photo brings back fond and good memories

Janice England writes:
This picture brings back a lot of fond and good memories. We went to the two room school that set just down the road from the store and post office. Those were the good days when you enjoyed going to school and could be trusted to walk to the store for a soda pop and candy bar or chips. We loved our school, teachers and other students. If the old trees could talk they would tell a few funny stories. - Janice England

Martha Berry: One of nice things about Columbia is that it's dry

Yes, I know all the arguments; bootleggers, tax revenue, more money coming into the county, more tourist trade, etc. But that doesn't change the fact that the town will be changed and not all the ways will be positive. - MARTHA BERRY

By Martha Berry
Personal opinion of the writer

I do not live in Columbia any more, so am not able to vote on this issue, but still call it home.

One of the nice things about this area is that it is dry. I have lived in several places that are wet and the atmosphere is entirely different than living in a dry area.

We wanted to hear what the candidates had to say that are running for Judge Executive's office and made a point to listen to what CJE Ann Melton, Joe Rogers, and Micheal Stephens had to say.

They were informative about what they wanted to do and what they have done for this community.

Bill Troutwine: The Last Bar Fight

Bill Troutwine shares this episode at our request. It was a tense situation he faced. He writes: "Bob" had his wife backed in a corner with an assault rifle pointing at her head. My mind was made up, if I could talk him down I would, but if he made any threatening moves with that rifle I was prepared to do what I needed to.
Setting the scene - At the time this story took place I was serving as Sheriff of Petroleum County, Montana. I was the only full-time law enforcement officer in a county of 1700 square miles (over 4 times the area of Adair County, KY - CM), and a population of 500 people. Petroleum County is one of the most remote counties in the United States. No matter what the call was, I always responded alone. I even responded to two different shootings alone while I was sheriff. One of the shootings was intentional and over a girl. The shooter was armed and still in the house when I arrived, but that is another story, and I may write about it sometime later. - BILL TROUTWINE.

The Last Bar Fight

My last year in Montana started with a call at 2:00AM from the Winnett Bar saying Bob was down at the bar drunk, with a rifle. He had run most of the cowboys out of the bar, and now he was threatening to kill his wife, and then commit suicide. As so many times before, I got up and dressed, but this time I put on my bullet proof vest and picked up my shotgun. Normally, I didn't wear the vest or take the shotgun on routine calls, and this got Donna's attention. She asked, "What is happening?" I said, "Bob is at the Winnett Bar, drunk with a rifle and he is threatening to kill 'Doris'." Donna replied, "What are you going to do? Bob is a friend of yours. He put the new roof on our house and then he helped you remodel the interior." I said, "I know. I like Bob. I sure hope he doesn't force me to kill him." (After it was all over we have had many discussions over that short conversation.)

Billy Joe Fudge comments on the Hunter Durham issue

By Billy Joe Fudgeto Phyllis Gilpin Yaglowski

Phyllis, Hunter is of a more advanced age than me but i''m told by others that he was always old for his age back in those days and now he is young for his age. Sounds like a pretty good trade off to me.

After much research, I'm told by sources that the use of braces dates back to before Christ and that even animal intestines were used in place of metal. Well now, that could explain a lot.

I'm just curious, however, about why the use of braces never caught on in the British Isles. I suppose this subject requires more in depth research and I will be submitting a proposal to the world renown research industry at The Great Wooded South Institute. - Billy Joe Fudge

Happy Tail, Horses: Black Pearl, aka Whitney

After 30 years riding, from 4-H to Quarterhorse competition, Peg Schaeffer decided to take the a very challenging world of jumping, in 1995. It's a sport she recommends starting a much younger age. Her horse of choice was "Black Pearl", aka "Whitney," with whom she's shared some unforgettable moments. Whitney turned 20 this year and shows her age - but she's still got the fire in her eye of a great competitor, a great jumper. Click on headline for story with photo(s)

Sugarfoot Farm Rescue

I started showing horses in 1965 (I'm not going to tell you how old I was.) I always rode Western but rode all different styles. I showed in Western Pleasure, Gymkhana, Reining, rode a few cutters, rode turn back for calf roping, and even tried my hand at driving. So basically I was a Jack of All Trades but master of none. I won my fair share of awards and progressed from 4-H Horse Shows to Quarter Horse Congress. Then 30 years later, in 1995 I decided I wanted to try jumping.

Half-Soles -- Remember Them

When I was a kid, the 'in' shoe for boys to wear was a high-top lace-up shoe with leather soles. It was before long-wearing neoprene soles were developed. KED brand tennis shoes were around but not popular like they are now because wearing them daily you soon developed an atrocious foot odor. And yes, it was a terminal condition among boys in those times. It was not a problem with the shoes. It was because you only got your feet washed with your Saturday night baths.

Lawyer Durham responds to critic of his memory of childhood

More on the Controversy of the Week: Did child prodigy Hunter Durham, at 9 years of age, ride the Greyhound alone to Louisville? Having lived in that time and witnessed the exploits of young Durham, one of the finest Baptist of the age. I believe him. There should be a Chautuaqua lecture, "An evening with Hunter Durham," when he recalls a Golden Era in Columbia, the late 1940's to early 1960's." - a bonus talk Columbia Rotarians often hear. He's their leader. - ED WAGGENER

Hunter Durham writes to Phyllis Gilpin Yaglowski:
Phyllis. Don't you remember that I stayed with your grandpatents for weeks at a time from that age. Lol! - Hunter Durham

Comments re article 66319 Phyllis Gilpin Yaglowski challenges HHD story a response to the story which started it all: 9-year old used to ride bus alone, Columbia-Louisville and back based on this week's hottest Favorite Old Photo from the archives of Larry Smith, Favorite old photo: Greyhound stop Columbia, 1968, photo by Jimmy Lowe Cravens.

" A Panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air.

" 'Why?' asks the confused waiter, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.
