Why the racket? Is the loud, speeding car keeping you awake?

Columbia, KY (2011-04-07 10:36pmCT) - For perhaps the last one hour, what sounds like a single speeding car, with illegal mufflers is disturbing the peace in Columbia, KY. Is it keeping anyone else awake?

Sufficient state noise statutes are in effect to issue citations, aren't they? -EW

Miss Nita and Frances forever young

Victoria Pike writes:
I must agree that Miss Nita and Miss Frances are beautiful ladies inside and out. I always enjoy my chats with Miss Frances. She still actively participates in our Democrat Women's club activities. When we have fundraisers or rallies she is always one of the first to have her baked goods there. Her chess pie is the best I have ever tasted. Might ask for a sample sometime. Looking good ladies.Vicky Pike

Fond memories of the old courthouse, whittlers, and folks past

Von Price writes:
What a truly beautiful picture of the "Old Court House." I just hope that it is never torn down. It is such a beautiful landmark for Columbia. I still remember people who used to work at the courthouse when I was a young child: Cotton Durham, Miss Betty, Joe England, just to name a few who have passed on.

And I remember seeing the farmers come into town on Saturday and sitting around the courthouse, whittling, and their shavings piled up, and they would see who could make the smallest curls from a piece of cedar wood. My father was one of those men. My father worked so hard on the farm to provide for our family and would go into town on Saturday to visit with people He knew. Just some fond memories of my childhood. I am proud to say that I grew up in Columbia, Kentucky. - Von Price, Louisville, KY

Richard Raines: Ageless beauty has to be genetic

Comments re article 43526: Gayle Harvey demands secret of being forever youthful

Richard Raines writes:
It would have to be genetics. Why else would we have people who are 70 plus running around with the energy of teenagers (and pretty much looking the part except for some gray hair) and people who age with not a gray hair to be found and they don't color it - while some of us at 50 look like a "humanized" version of a basset hound or some 20 somethings have salt and pepper hair? -Richard Raines
But maybe, also, Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) was right when she said, "Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art." -CM
