Athletics at CU - Truly More Than a Game!

Mention college sports in this part of the world, and the University of Kentucky and University of Louisville basketball programs most likely spring to mind. But Campbellsville University actually fields more student-athletes - approximately 725 including varsity teams in all sports and junior varsity teams in some sports - than either of the big public schools, and athletes make up a far higher percentage of the student body than at most other colleges and universities.

Letter: Bus garage serves all

Tommy Melson writes:
Ms. Miller,
The safety of the children is paramount in decision to build the bus garage. It means safer and newer buses to the county, not just for some but all the children. Don't get me wrong, the accomplishments of the Adair Co Band for the school are beyond measure, but the bus garage serves all and that is the important thing here... --Tommy Melson

Thinks new band building should have come before bus garage

Personal commentary

Vicki Brock Miller writes:
I'm quite surprised that our School Board would choose to build a bus garage when a new band room, which would be considered a instructional facility, is so badly needed. The well being and safety of the students should take priorty over the buses. There should be something in the laws that govern school boards to prevent such a decision.

For many years Adair County band students have worked so hard and given our community so much to be proud of. More importantly many band alumni have gone on to have great careers in different fields of music. Just the opinion of one band alumni. Thanks. - Vicki Brock Miller

By Joyce Coomer

Oppressive heat in Summer -- Always has been, always will be in commercial areas . . . one of the byproducts of concrete and asphalt covering the earth.

No shade -- Never has been much that I can recall except what the buildings provide during the day.

Papaw trees along Burkesville bearing fruit

2015-08-31 - Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
A number of papaw trees are growing along the sidewalk on Burkesville Street, south of Guardian. This small one had landed along the retaining wall by Downey Eye Clinic, on Friday, August 28, 2015. By Sunday, several larger ones had fallen, most cushioned by the grass, but a few had splattered on the sidewalk. Maybe there are more of the trees in Columbia than most of us realized. Maybe we need the urban tree inventory suggested a few years back by retired forester Billy Joe Fudge. - EW

Bryan Blair: 1905 would have been early era of carnivals

Bryan Blair writes:
I'm not sure what the first year of a carnival at the Adair County Fair was but 1905 would've been the early era of carnivals in the USA. It is widely believed that carnivals got their beginnings after the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago. In 1902 there were seventeen traveling carnivals in the United States. The number grew to forty-six in 1905 and by 1937 there was an estimated 300 carnivals touring the country. - Bryan Blair

Little Peanut, Angus newborn; rescued from black vulture attack

Those black ugly birds of prey are a protected species. Miss Vicky learned that first hand, when newborn Angus calf Little Peanut was attacked by some 15 birds. Thanks to an alert by Ernie Rogers, she was able to rescue the little fellow. In the safe harbor of the barn he grew strong, and made a new friend there, a little iPhone 6 shy kitten named Popcorn. There's a point to this story she says: keep a watch on your cattle during calving season. If you see vultures circling, please let your neighbors who have cattle know or go check yourself. Just as scary: The birds have been know to stalk human babies. Attacks on humans are not common, but do occur.

Bud was named after our boogy man sinkhole dweller, Bud Mullins, on the advice of Miss Nancy Moran Fouser, whose grandmother dreamed Bud up many moons ago to control the wild neighborhood children. I was one of those wild ones. Bud is from the prized registered herd of Kenneth Lowe, Oak Hollow Angus Farms, Smiths Grove Kentucky.
