Happy Tail for Father's Day: Mr. Taylor's Farm

Father's Day Memories: Sunday was her day with her dad, and he introduced her to Mr. Taylor's Farm
The next earlier Happy Tail: Happy Tail: Win a few. Lose a few Posted June 8, 2014.

By Peg Schaeffer

I've loved horses as long back as I can remember. I inherited that from my father. I watched every TV show and read every book about horses I could. I had toy horses to play with and built barns with wooden blocks. My greatest dream was that someday I would own a horse of my own.

CAROL PERKINS: Emergency Room & flaw of HS aptitude tests

In an Army aptitude test the author took while at Metcalfe County High School in Edmonton, KY, she scored highest to be a nurse. But in retrospect, she finds that she was meant to be one - and takes an introspective look at why she probably wasn't cut out to answer this so important calling.
Next earlier Carol Perkins article: Carol Perkins: Thoughts after studying MCHS Class of '64 picture Posted June 17, 2014

By Carol Perkins

I can count the times on one hand that I have been with someone to the emergency room, and I have never been there for myself. I should be thankful. I happened to be in a situation that needed me to take someone to the emergency room twice in the last month.

One time it was in the wee hours of the morning, so the wait was minimal, and within a few hours the patient was released and we were on our way home. The last time was around nine o'clock and the emergency room was hopping.

1900 ft. long Spurlington Train Tunnel haunted by ghost?

It's been some 7 years since Larry Smith, South Central Kentucky historian, wrote this account of the Spurlington Tunnel. Renewed interest inspired this re-post of a fascinating South Central Kentucky legendary landmark.
Spurlington Named: "Spurlington was named by the first post master, John Kipsey Spurling," -Mark Phillips, December 24, 2009
Rail line through train tunnel at one time saw four trains a day carrying freight and passengers to Campbellsville and Greensburg. Local legend says slain woman's ghost put a curse on tunnel and any who pass through. (Author, "Indiana" Smith, has explored the tunnel without apparent ill effects.) Some still think Jesse James' Gang's plunder is buried in area

By Larry Smith, WHVE FM 92.7, the Wave
With thanks to Nell Wise for information of historical note

Since I posted the photo of the old Spurlington Train Tunnel on Columbia Magazine I've received numerous comments of facsination as to the historical status of the Tunnel and of the Spurlington community..Here's what I have come up with:

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. My Dad - Arley Hinman

Chuck Hinman: My Dad -- Arley Hinman. Chuck says most of all, Dad was a compassionate soulmate to my Mom when she was eventually crippled by arthritis and couldn't go as much.
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Cow Tales

By Chuck Hinman

My Dad -- Arley Hinman

In all my writing the last couple years, I have written a lot about everyone else but not much about my dad, Arley Hinman. My readers could ponder if there was some reason for my writing so little about him. I can assure you, there is none.

I don't deny I could be characterized as being more of a momma's boy than a daddy's boy. I see nothing abnormal about that. That probably is true in the majority of families. It probably is an indication of where the tough discipline came from. Even then, my discipline was never physical, often verbal and highly effective. When Dad chewed me out, if I was facing the sun, I often saw a rainbow from the amount of spit coming from his mouth in the chewing-out process. I just ducked and took it -- it went with the area.
