Bill Troutwine: The Last Wild Chase; or 4th of July, Montana Style

The Last Wild Chase, is the third part of the three part story titled, My Last Year in Montana. The other two parts, My Last Montana Winter and The Last Bar Fight have already appeared in Columbia Magazine. I have a really great story in mind for Christmas, so as Christmas draws near be watching Columbia Magazine for it. As you know some of my stories are humorous and some are very serious just as life is.
Originally I wrote these stories for my Grandchildren, but at the urging of others, I decided to share some of them, not because I think I'm so interesting, but because Montana is so interesting, and life in Montana is so different compared to what we are use to here. - BILL

By Bill Troutwine

Former Sheriff of Petroleum County, MT; now Constable, Adair Co., KY District 1 On July the 4th, 2003 Donna and I had spent the day relaxing around the house doing nothing. We were getting ready to eat supper (dinner for the politically correct), when someone started beating on the door and yelling like the house was on fire. I went to the door and saw it was Ray (last name intentionally with held). Ray was yelling, "Someone just broke into dad's station." Ray's father owned and operated the only gas station in Winnett.

Eagles of Old, in the Adair County Area

By Mike Watson, 204 High Street, Columbia, KY
Watson.kentucky@gmail.com

One of the most enduring symbols of the United States of America is the Bald Eagle. Benjamin Franklin has suggested the stately native bird, the American Turkey, but the Eagle was more popular and has remained to this day. At one time the eagle was severely decimated in number, but with conservation efforts, the numbers have grown. Today, the eagle is a majestic sight in Kentucky. Once upon a time, in Adair County, the eagle was considered a pest, a bird of prey that targeted domesticated animals at times. Killing an eagle became newsworthy as of the twentieth century as the following items will show. May seems to have been a particularly bad month for the eagle.

JIM: Freedom is neither cheap nor free

Homage to a hero of WWII: Elmer Ray Rubarts, Jr., Knifley, KY

By JIM

Seventy years ago today -- July 4th, 1944 -- Elmer Ray Rubarts, Jr., became the 12th Adair Countian killed in action or who died from wounds received in battle during World War II. Sadly, many more Adair Countians would die and hundreds more injured before the United States decisively ended the warfare in mid-August, 1945.

Young Rubarts volunteered for military service in the summer of 1940, three months past his eighteenth birthday, while still was a student at Knifley High. At the time of his death, a few weeks past his twenty-second birthday he was serving as a Tank Commander with the 759th Light Tank Battalion.

The 759th landed at Normandy on D-Day +10. Stated one source, "From June 28 until July 8, 1944, the 759th Tank Battalion was attached to the 101st Airborne Division, where it helped with mopping up operations and patrolling the east coast of the Cherbourg peninsula [in France] between St. Mere Eglise and Valognes."
