JIM: Miss Oma Winfrey's Reverie, 1916

The story is about families and places in Adair County. The place referred to, "Glenville," is also known, today, by more familiar names: Hardscratch, Glens Fork and Glensfork - and is rarely referred to by its more common name of a century ago. We love this piece it for its literary nature, which evokes a notion that hard as we try, today's writers - JIM and a few others who contribute to CM excepted - rarely reach the level of literary quality so many of the correspondents to the Adair County News reached in those days. This is another which makes one wonder Mark Twain didn't just capitalize on a literary heritage "in the air" shared with so many Adair Countians of his day who, in different circumstances, might have exceeded his success. - CM

By JIM

The front page of the May 10, 1916 Adair County News published a reverie written by Miss Oma Winfrey, the daughter of Elfie Taylor Winfrey and a granddaughter of Z.T. "Long Tom" Taylor and Mattie Jones Taylor of Glenville.

Elfie (also spelled Elpha), Tom and Mattie's oldest child, and Elisha Franklin(E.F.) Winfrey were married in mid-October 1899 but when the census was taken in early June the following year, they were living apart, he in the Little Cake section with Benjamin and Margaret Cook (his brother-in-law and sister), she in the Glenville precinct (under her maiden name) with her father, step-mother, a younger sister, three younger half-sisters, and a younger half-brother, Ben Frank. Elfie and E.F.'s respective marital statuses were given as "wd" - widow(er). By this time, Elfie was carrying Oma, who made her advent in early October 1900.


To Miss Winfrey's reflective thoughts, the News added a one-line preface: "The house described by this writer is the old Cartwright home at Glenville:"

KY Afield Outdoors: Spring fishing on rivers

By Kevin Kelly

Frankfort, KY - An extended stretch of stable weather and seasonably warm temperatures in late April created optimal spring fishing conditions for anglers across Kentucky.

The calm broke at the end of the month when rounds of storms over a period of days preceded a cold front. In their wake, rivers and streams that had been running low and clear and warmer than normal rose and cooled off a bit.

"This is just going to be a quick pulse," said Mike Hardin, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "On a falling river, I'd hit the feeder creeks. You'll have a better chance of finding fish there because of the difference in water quality and clarity. When stable patterns return, fish will start returning to the main river and below locks and dams."

Norvel's barn probably won't be rebuilt, he says

Norvel Farris said this morning he probably won't rebuild the historic barn which was destroyed by fire on April 27 , 2016.. It was built in in 1948, he said, and back then cost $1,200. To put that in perspective, a pickup truck in those years costs somewhat less.

Lives changed during Campbellsville University Spring Break

By Josh Christian, student news writer

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. Spring break provides rest for students and faculty in the midst of a busy semester. Yet, for many spring breakers at Campbellsville University, it also provides the opportunity to serve on the mission field. From March 11 to March 20, three teams left Campbellsville, Ky. to go to different parts of the country, and the world.

A group of 13, consisting of CU football coaches, football players, administrators, and other friends, left on March 10 for a week-long trip tominister in four Florida state prisons through softball and at the Orlando Rescue Mission Homeless facility for men in downtown Orlando, Jim Hardy, assistant athletic director, said.
