City Council studying Campbellsville-style crosswalks

2017-11-08 - Campbellsville, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,
The Columbia City Council, meeting Monday, November 6, 2017, unanimously approved a request by Council Member Pam Hoots to authorize the Sidewalk Committee to negotiate with the KY Tranasportation Cabinet for permission to paint Pedestrian Crossings similar to this on in the 500 block of E Main Street in Campbellsville, KY. The Sidewalk Committee spent the better part of one day with Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young studying safety measures Campbellsville has taken to make the micropolitan community one of the most walkable in Kentucky. Variations might include adding cross hatching in the inside black rectangle warning motorists to stay out of that area except when it is clear to move through only, preventing blocking as happens on Jamestown Street at Reed, adding stop bars at each crossing, and stop signs on each corner.

Carol Perkins: Scavenger hunt & sorting leads to treasures

On a dull, rainy day sorting keepers and discards, Carol comes across memories, which took from from melancholy is a high, a Rocky Mountain high.
You can listen to Carol Tuesdays on The "Susan & Carol, Unscripted" show, live. FM 99.1 radio

Next earlier column: Carol Perkins: Volunteering for Trunk or Treat in Edmonton

By Carol Perkins

In searching for some missing jewelry, my scavenger hunt led to treasures long ago forgotten. On a dull, rainy day with no motivation to do anything but stay inside, I tackled my office/kids bedroom. When Jon left home he quickly pointed out that I didn't take much time dismantling his bed and moving in a corner computer desk and filing cabinets. I didn't know he would be so touchy about his room!

This particular do-nothing day, I tackled that room vowing to throw away random papers and odds and ends. In my milling around, I discovered long forgotten mementos of high school days, clippings from Carla and Jon's adventures, and pictures. What will I ever do with all these pictures?

Among the newspapers and pictures and projects were cards and letters. Each one took me to a special place. There was the sweetest letter from a middle school student sent in the mail to me long after the school year ended. She is now a college graduate living in Nashville, so I sent her a Facebook message to thank her all over again. She responded with the same sweet words she had used back then. Another precious card was from a student and her mother! The student had moved to the middle school in December many years ago and thanked me for making it easier for her. Her mother had also been a student of mine "way back when," so I reached out to thank her again. I discovered that her daughter was expecting her first child! I'm loving this day.
