Early Kentucky cookbooks part of genealogy event



2020-02-09 - Columbia - Photo by Linda Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
Among the recommended cookbooks presented by Mary Anne Loy Saturday was "Mrs. Wiggs of The Cabbage Patch" which came from/or led to "Cabbage Patch Famous Recipes of Kentucky." Even if you donít want to cook, she said, this is fun book to read about people who found themselves living in Louisville, barely getting by in the old part of Louisville. They all had outdoor gardens and they grew and lived on lots of cabbage - it must be easy to grow. The photos behind the books are of her mother, Ila Mae Rankin Martin, on the left and her grandmothers on the right who, she said, were gave her the most guidance in food management and cooking growing up in Harrodsburg, KY. Center photo is of her Grandfather and Grandmother, Carl Vernon and Sara Stewart Martin, and at far right is Jessie Denton Rankin, Mary Anne's motherís mother.

February 18, 1978 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

The article below first appeared in the February 18, 1978 issue of the Daily Statesman. Topics included a Veterans' reunion, matching wits with local lawyers, some wisdom from John Burr, The Great Educational Walking Experiment of 1978, and more of his lifelong promotion of the importance of sidewalks. I remember hating that 2-mile walk to school, but Dad was right about the sidewalks. --Pen

He's the same Howard Smith
Coy Rice, Columbia, has been involved with re-union plans for his old Army unit, the 102nd Infantry Division, in which he was a member in World War II. Recently, he says, his former lieutenant, Elmer Russell of Wingo, Texas, was going through the unit yearbook and came across the name Howard K. Smith. He wondered if the man were the same Howard K. Smith of television fame.

He wrote ABC-Television to ask if his Smith were the same as theirs. The word came back that, yes, indeed, he was the same man. And a few days later, Rice reports, Howard K. Smith contacted Elmer Russell to tell him he would attend the reunion, which will be held Labor Day. "It's funny how a uniform and a few years make people look different," Rice said. "I'd watched him on television for years, and I never thought about it being the same man I walked across Europe beside. I talked with him a lot during the war."

These lawyers are sharp
Don't mess around with this crowd of Columbia lawyers.
