Lasses Makin' - an October tradition in Kentucky

A day of helping make molasses on Dennis Whitlock's Green County, KY farm was the inspiration for this poem. The author says, "Loved it but it sure is a hot job."

By Phillip Coffey

After shortened days of my 'cane raising'
Arduous activities of sowing and gathering.
The day of 'cooking down 'lasses' has arrived.
The smell of the brewing has cut off my 'stewing'.

A ' quality time' family affair along with a preacher.
Seasoned up-bringing leads to the annual creation.
Generations of help smiling - 'Oh what a teaching.'
Sunshine and rain leads us to days of our blessing(s).

Some changes on the Square, 1945

By JIM

Several changes on the Square in 1945 began in a blaze (so to speak) in the closing days of 1944.

In the pre-dawn hours of Christmas morning 1944, fire roared though both the Creel Building on the exit corner of Campbellsville Road and the adjoining structure to the east. The corner building housed Fannie Fields' beauty salon and a drugstore, the latter freshly restocked by new owner Martin Rowe, while the latter housed Roberts 5-10-25c Store. The combination of smoke, flame, and water ruined nearly all the merchandise in all three operations.

Mrs. Elma Page Frazer, owner of both buildings and a partner in the Roberts' business, estimated the combined losses at $50,000, which would be nearly three-quarters of a million dollars today (2020).

A few weeks later, a brief legal notice announced the dissolution of the Roberts and Page partnership as well as that of the business itself. Apparently, the building suffered little (if any) structural damage, as mid-March 1945 found J.C. Marshall announcing he intended to open a new furniture store and gift shop in the space previously occupied by Roberts.
