Click on headline for full details of the caper

By Victoria Pike

After at least a triple hot flash, one of the girls is back home under lock and key after an afternoon visit to some of our neighbors.
Yesterday one of our black and white faced cows had a calf that was born dead.

Brought her to the house to see if she would take a twin, Buster, that nobody claimed a few days ago.

Jon Halsey: High drama in Campbellsville

Ears perked up when officer radios dispatch with message: "It's attacking us."
Click on headline for more. Click to 68053 for tolerably related incidents

By Jon Halsey

Running an emergency scanner in the background while reading CM finally paid off this morning but in an unexpected way.

I could tell from the voice "traffic" that something was afoot in the Forest Hills area of Campbellsville and as I started listening, it sounded like a wild critter was creating havoc and the woman who called 911 was afraid. My ears perked up when an officer radioed dispatch that "it's attacking us".

When good pets go bad: the sad saga of Mr. Lowe's squirrel

Most of today's citizenry have become complacent about squirrel attacks. but in the early days of the municipality they were happening with alarming frequency, as often as every 5,288 days or so, behooving today's citizenry to keep a wary eye out for the delicious, furry little critters. Yet, JIM is not posting this to alarm folks. Rather, as a comfort for neurotics everywhere, worried about everything, including running out of fresh phobias.
Click on headline for complete documentation of backyard terrorists of yore

By JIM

The quietude of everyday life enjoyed by the residents of Burkesville Street got blown all to flinders one drowsy morning in early September, 1915. On that less than auspicious occasion, a pet squirrel belonging to Mr. George Lowe, a resident of the aforementioned avenue, somehow took leg bail from its cage, and, in a word (or two), went berserk.

Mike Watson: Early Automobiles in Adair County, part 1

This is the first of a 3-part series on Mike Watson's notes on early Adair County and Columbia automobiles.
Click on headline for complete installment

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

The first and only Automobile, the horseless carriage, pulled into Columbia last Tuesday. Some time ago the News announced that Mr. Newbold would visit Columbia in his Automobile but it so happened that it was late. At any rate its coming was appreciated by many who crowded it so closely that it was difficult for the Auto to "git its breaf." Mr. W.H. Hudson was fortunate to get a ride which he declares filled him with emotions indescribable. He was so well pleased that arrangements will be made to have one in use at the Fair grounds, then everybody can get to see it and spin around the tract at rate 30 miles an hour. -Adair County News, 10 July 1901.

Happy Tail - The story of Cowboy

Cowboy's story is of early life of outlaw behavior. Enough that even Peg Schaeffer was ready to return him - only to come face-to-face with her role in his euthanization and changed her mind. The story is one of redemption and salvation, when cowboy's life was turned around with the love of a young girl. It's the story of a made in heaven, predestined adoption, and cowboy's long, long life with his the man he chose to go home with.
The next earlier Happy Tail: Happy Tail for Father's Day: Mr. Taylor's Farm Posted June 15, 2014.

By Peg Schaeffer

While still in CT I got a phone call from a friend of mine who worked at the Killingly Dog Pound. They had a male Australian Cattle Dog that they had been unable to place. He was a blue merle who had been shot by his owner's neighbor. The owner never had the dog treated and it wasn't until someone reported him that it was investigated. They took the dog from the owner and took him to a veterinarian but by the time he got there it was too late. They were unable to restore movement in his leg. So now this handsome ACD, Cowboy, was at the dog pound looking for a home. No one wanted a dog that had four legs but was unable to use one. My friend assured me that he was well behaved. He had an outgoing personality and they let him stay in the office when they were there. She asked me if I could take him.

'Making Do'

In the 1930's as I was growing up on a farm in southeastern Nebraska, I don't know how many times I heard Mom say, as she was visiting with a neighbor friend on the party line, "Well, we just have to make do ...... bla, bla, bla ......"

What in the world is this 'make do' talk? It's terrible grammar!
