2014 Rotary Auction raises $7,000

Those who still need to pick up items can do so at Durham & Zornes

By George Koblenschlag

Last week's Rotary radio auction raised $7,000 which will be given to next year's Adair County High School seniors for scholarships to Lindsey Wilson College. About $5,500 came from items auctioned and another $1,500 from cash donations.

That speaks to the generosity of local merchants, businesses and private individuals who contributed items for the auction and who made cash contributions. They are the ones who make the auction and scholarships possible.

Those who could not pay for and pick up their items at the regular scheduled times Thursday and Friday can pick them up this week at Durham and Zornes, 130 Public Square, Columbia. George Kolbenschlag, 320 Young Street, Columbia, KY 42728

Letter: French Toast Recipe Well Worth the Effort

Bill Coleman writes:
We purchased Tucker's Station Farm's Cinnamon Swirl bread on Saturday at the Farmer's Market on the Square. We obtained Barbara Armitage's recipe for French Toast on Columbia Magazine. It was a delicious treat for our breakfast this morning and our out of town guests really liked it. The recipe was a bit complicated, but well worth the effort. Barbara's bread is the best! --Bill Coleman

Mike Watson: Adair County Fairs, A Brief History

July 4, 2014, marks the start of two weeks of celebrating at the county fair. The Adair County Fair & Horse Show has a rich history, a chronicle - with a few hiatuses - which dates back to 1856, and, before that to a statewide organization fostering interest in the fairs and exhibitions throughout the Commonwealth, when a son of Columbia was one of the 13 vice presidents of the Kentucky State Agriculture Society. Historian Mike Watson has encapusulated the most important details, gleaned from his own vast knowledge and many printed sources, to write this timely story.
The fair remains the premier reunion and homecoming event in Adair County. Adair County Fair & Horse Show, July 4, 7-12, 2014 2014 Adair Co. Fair Information and Schedule of Events

By Mike Watson, Adair County historian

Agriculture was the mainstay for the vast majority of Kentucky citizens in the 1800s. Since the early 1800s, agricultural meets, horse shows and general fairs had become a special interest of agricultural Kentucky. They began in the Bluegrass and spread across the state. To foster diversification and to bring new breeds and varieties into common use, agricultural fairs were promoted in the state as early as the 1830s. In April 1838 a second Kentucky State Agricultural Society was created to promote local agriculture and the societies it hoped would be formed to encourage production. Edward B. Gaither, son of Dr. Nathan Gaither, of Columbia, was one of the thirteen vice presidents of this Society, scattered across the state.

The new book, The Never Ending Mile, takes readers from a one-room school in Metcalfe County, KY to Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans, LA.

Winn Hensley's memories begin in the rolling hills of south central Kentucky on his first day at a little one-room school. He describes kicking a stone down the rocky road and his mother telling him if he kept that up he'd never get another new pair of shoes.

Betty Jo came to us just like a special angel to help take care of mother and dad in their final days.

CU hosting about 7,000 campers over summer of 2014

University finds camps a way to spread the Gospel, as well as being a strong recruiting vehicle. The campus leaves a lasting impression. 'They like the location and the close proximity of all the buildings, they love how beautiful all the landscaping is and all of the options that are provided in the dining hall,' Rusty Watkins, who has worked with the camps for 13 years, says.

CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Fifty-three Bibles have been handled out this summer to campers at Campbellsville University. Rusty Watkins is proud of that.

Happy Tail: Spanky, the red nose Pit Bull

There are breed specific traits, some endearing or useful. Pitbulls reputation always precedes them; a 'gateway surrender' at Sugarfoot of Spanky, led to some difficult moments, until a life changing encounter with Dr. Olt. Spanky now has better social skills and a forever home at Sugarfoot, paw-in-paw with his excellent friend, Page, an Australian Cattle Dog. The journey is worth every minute of this read; click on the headline to read it all, with Spanky and a new best friend, Dr. Olt.
The next earlier Peg Shaeffer column: Happy Tail - The story of Cowboy. Posted June 22, 2014

By Peg Schaeffer

When people call here and want to surrender a Pit Bull I don't usually take them in. Although I am not "breed specific" and try to rescue all dogs the Pit Bull Terriers don't usually fit in here. We have several and they're all good dogs but sometimes don't work out in the environment here. Pit Bulls' aggression trait has been bred into them. They are normally aggressive, and this is only to be expected. Despite the stories and myths, Pit Bulls are not normally aggressive towards humans. This is abnormal behavior in a breed that is naturally friendly. While Pit Bulls were bred as fighting dogs, this was to fight against other animals, and dogs biting humans, especially their handlers, were put to death. This has resulted in a breed that is aggressive, but loves people, since those characteristics were selected for encouragement.

Every breed has a special trait

Every dog breed has a trait they're known for. Beagles are going to hunt rabbits and they have a built in ignore switch. When they're on the scent you can call them until you're blue in the face and for some reason they can't hear you. But if you open a can of food or the refrigerator door - they're right on it.

Jack Russell Terriers are like the energizer bunny. They last and last and last. We have one named Lil Bit that makes me laugh all the time. She's always on the go. Even today - she climbed on the top bunk of the Kuranda bed that's on the deck and pulled one of my plants, pot and all, off the railing. Just because it was there - no other reason. Labrador Retrievers love the water. Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, any herding breed needs a job to do or they get bored and in trouble.

Mike Watson: Early Automobiles in Adair County, part 2

One hundred eight years ago, getting from Columbia to Campbellsville by automobile was quite an adventure. The Columbia Motor Car Company, with principal offices in the Columbia Christian College, was incorporated to address the challenge. Meeting the challenge brought on new ones, from late arrival of 'the machine', getting 'the machine' into useful service was an adventure, with the initial arrival of an 'imperfect machine,' breakdowns, an accident at Burdick due to axle breakdown, even a trip delay to Campbellsville, when the automobile was faced a washed out culvert at Kellyville, and nearer Columbia, the Cheatham bridge was also damage. Just a few highlights of this fascinating 2nd installment of Early Automobiles by Adair County Historian Mike Watson

Forest F. Harvey: Sing it again, Phil

A memorable event in his Days as a ministerial student at Trevecca Nazarene University, and a family-speak line "Sing it again," recently reminded the writer of his 80th birthday, his wife's 77th birthday, and their 60th wedding anniversary, of Peggy Lee's most famous song, and what a life's meaning will be. He writes: "Benjamin Franklin said, 'If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing."

By Forest F. Harvey

One of the things I liked while attending Trevecca Nazarene University was getting to attend all of the Nazarene churches in Nashville Tennessee. It was part of my training as a Ministerial student. At one church we attended the pastor used his son-in-law Phil, a music student at TNU , for the song leader. When the service was going good at the close of the song, Pastor, setting in the pulpit chair crying, would say, "Sing it again Phil". This statement was etched in both my wife and my memories.

Man, you can say that again, especially if you have been around for 85 years like I have.

William Faulkner warned us of a plague. The miasma had hit Jefferson and Yoknapatawpha County in his trilogy consisting of The Hamlet, The Town, and The Mansion.

I have just finished re-reading the final book, The Mansion. While it may be one of the funniest southern novels written, it also describes the plague -- worse than Spanish moss, kudzu, or Magnolia Maidens. The plague is named Snopes.
