Columbia United Methodist Church is organizing a Columbia to Journey to the Cross Drive around Columbia. You can prepare your heart and mind for Easter and get out of the house while maintaining the necessary physical distance!

Throughout Holy Week, starting today, Palm Sunday, feel welcome to drive from station to station, reminding you and your family of the steps leading to Christ's death and His resurrection on Easter morning.

The drive will begin at the front of Columbia UMC located across from Save-a-Lot at 202 Burkesville Street. Directions to the next station will be located on each sign. Blessings and health to you this Easter season!

A peaceful scene and Palm Sunday message from Judge Cowan

2020-04-05 - Adair County, KY - Photo by AC Judge Executive.
Gale Cowan, Adair County Judge Executive, shared a comment with this peaceful photo Palm Sunday afternoon, "Just a quick update - I receive an update from the Lake Cumberland District Health Department daily. Yesterday we had NO NEW CASES in our 10 county area. As in every county, I’m sure we continue to have people tested. Continue to pray to the ones that are positive as well as their families, our community, and all the front line health professionals. Pray for the essential workers who are helping the rest of us get our essential needs. I continue to ask that you practice your social distancing by staying six feet apart. You can get out of your house on these beautiful days. Take a walk, go fishing (as we are doing) take a drive. Enjoy this beautiful Lords Day!

Kentucky Color: Walking Thru History

By Billy Joe Fudge

With the beginnings of the new and wonderful South Highway 61, Dad often spoke about the fact that this would be the third Highway 61 that he had traveled on. Recently, I was blessed to find myself walking upon what I would consider to be Highway 61, number one. One day Houston Pennington, his Dad David and I were looking at a timber stand for a client. While David was walking in front of me I realized where we were walking; yep, on Highway 61, number one! We were walking South toward Breeding up the hill from Harrod's Fork Creek with Harrod's Fork Circle Road about a hundred feet to our right and a couple hundred yards beyond that, the new Highway 61.

Just to think that I was walking along the very route that my Dad's family and thousands of our ancestors would have been traveling by foot, on horse back, by wagon and by early automobiles, began to bring on a rush of memories; memories which Dad shared with me about when he was just a boy. Memories of trips to Columbia riding in a wagon that began at dawn of day and would finally end with them arriving back home late in the day and sometimes after dark. As he grew older, trips would often be made by him and his Dad, my Pa Abb, in a Model A or Model T of a neighbor who was making the trip into town.

Then I began to think back to many of my thousands of trips on my generation's Highway 61. Trips with memories which I will never forget, some of which were tragic and some of which may have been fraught with difficulties but are now cherished memories and of course, many memories filled with joys which still flood every facet of my being.

One of those "fraught with difficulties" trips which is now a "cherished memory" was a trip to an Adair County basketball game in Larue County.

April 29, 1978 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

The article below first appeared in the April 29, 1978 issue of the Daily Statesman. Topics included praise for Gerald Reliford and Ralph Waggener, Daylight Savings Time, a population boom at Roley, Nancy Salato's Journalism award, and a call to the Redneck Anti-Defamation League. --Pen

By Ed Waggener

Thanks, Martha Burris
One of the first persons to call us when the Daily Statesman is wrong is Martha Burris. When she does, she is always, at least until now, right. We hope readers think she was right when she called Friday. She said, "I want to tell you when you are doing well. Gerald (Gerald Reliford) is doing a fine job. I really like the articles and I like the sermons he prints. And tell Ralph (Ralph Waggener) that the photo of Bobby Hutchison cleaning trash under the bridge (Daily Statesman, Wednesday, April 26, 1978) was a classic. It ought to be entered in a contest."

Thanks, Martha Burris.

Those are both good boys. You will have made them hard to live with, however. Ralph has always liked Kodaks, and he knows how to use the one he has. But with a subject like Lawyer Hutchison, how could he miss?

And this Reliford fellow. I agree. But he is getting to be a nuisance. He is a mighty hard act to follow.

And I sometimes wonder about an ordained minister telling some of the tales he and Deacon Bobby Willis tell.

90 years ago: Entertainment, education, and the marvelous Maytag

During the first week of April, 1930, President Hoover began his 14th month in office; the economic depression, worsening by the day, entered its 21st week; the 15th federal census started; and America's Sweetheart, Mary Pickford, a few days short of her 38th birthday and in the twilight of stardom, went home a winner (Best Female Actress) from the first radio-broadcasted Academy Awards. But meanwhile, back in The Shire...


The Junior Class play, "Patty Makes Things Hum," packed the high school auditorium and the appreciative audience much enjoyed the fun. The cast included Marie White in the lead role, along with Stonewall Dohoney, Jr., Ethel Tarter. Louise Montgomery, Lola Hill, Mary Neat, future Columbia mayor Bunny Shively, Davis Jones, Cecil Henson, and Russell Wilson. Mrs. Ray (Ruth) Montgomery directed, with assistance from Mrs. W.J. (Berenice) Flowers, and the Blue Bird Orchestra provided the music under the direction of Mrs. Ores (Lula) Barger.

Those seeking other entertainment had several options over the next few days: a hot debate between Lindsey Wilson's two literary societies on April 10th; the Columbia - Jamestown baseball game at the Lindsey Wilson diamond, April 12th (general admission 25c, students 15c); and the CHS senior class play,"Am I Intruding?," a mystery comedy, May 2nd. And, even closer on the near event horizon, the 1928 movie "The Three Passions" would play the evening of April 8th at the Rialto: "Come and see the way of God, Gold and Woman." (A review written nearly eighty years later named the "passions" as ambition, greed, and lust for power.)

The Strong Hill family of Gradyville had just purchased a house in suburban Columbia and planned to move there post-haste. (A family member opened the door and welcomed the census taker into their new home when she came calling out Jamestown Road on April 24th.)

Video: Ghost in Columbia

Frequent Columbia Magazine contributor and amateur paranormalist Joe Hare captured this exclusive video on his front porch in downtown Columbia early on Saturday, April 4, 2020. Joe writes: "Anyone seeing any ghosts around town? What you see in this video is what I saw when the camera triggered early today. It has not been altered in any way. Della has been told for years this house is haunted, maybe so!"

Sen. Max Wise's Legislative Update - April 4, 2020

Personal political commentary/opinions of the writer

By State Senator Max Wise, (R-Campbellsville)
16th District: Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne Counties

The Kentucky General Assembly wrapped up its final day before the start of a veto recess by passing a one-year Executive Branch budget.

The Senate met its constitutional obligation to pass a state budget this week, but the spending plan was truncated because of COVID-19. It's simply unclear how severe the disease's impact will be on the amount of taxes collected or the citizenry's wellbeing.

Instead of trying to pass a two-year financial plan with so many unknowns, legislators came together and crafted a 12-month budget using the most pessimistic revenue forecast considered by the state's nonpartisan economic forecasters. The heart of the spending plan is the executive branch budget found in House Bill 352, which passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in both chambers.

With economic uncertainties in mind, the Kentucky General Assembly had to reset sights from what was widely envisioned earlier this year where drafts of the budget proposal outlined increased school funding as well as pay raises for teachers and state employees. HB 352 would eliminate all salary increases included in earlier budget proposals but would hold SEEK base appropriation at $4,000 per pupil. The acronym stands for Support Education Excellence in Kentucky, the formula used to allocate state tax dollars to local school districts. In other education-related funding, HB 352 would provide $7.4 million for school-based mental health service providers. Their services are required based on the language in the 2019 School Safety and Resiliency Act.

Other highlights of HB 352 include $938,000 for the "rocket docket," a program to expedite court cases to save on legal fees, administrative expenses and even jail costs while ensuring timely access to the courts. Supporters of the expenditure said the rocket docket will be even more important because of COVID-19. The disruption in people's lives caused by the disease is likely to place additional stress on our court system.

Letter: Reply to Mike Watson's story

Jeff Johnson writes:

Mike, it seems that we are eerily in that same situation that happened after the ‘great war.’ Maybe that is one of different reasons the U.S. was reluctant to enter another foreign war-as in WW2.

We, as a modern nation, are dealing with those circumstances again. However, we are spoiled with more abundant electric and phones in our homes.

Also, more advance medicine and medical techniques, indoor plumbing, better transportation and travel, television, computers, and "magical" cell phones.

Nevertheless, we now have city mail carriers and RFD (rural free delivery.) - Jeff

Social Distancing practiced a century ago

By Mike Watson

The corona-virus of 2020 is a serious outbreak that has already taken numerous lives and will continue to spread, as such things do, until it has 'run its course' and an effective medication is created and successfully in use. We must all keep vigilant and self-protect by staying away from those who may have been exposed. There is no harm nor foul in being safe and secure.

There is nothing new under the sun...

One century ago the world was much different, but also much the same. The United States had remained largely isolated from the conflict in Europe that erupted in 1914, but trade had continued and so had immigration. When our nation entered the conflict in April 1917 millions of American men registered for possible, even likely, service on the front lines.

After a long hard fight, the War To End All Wars--what we call now term World War I--came to a close with the Armistice in 11 November 1919. Later, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, Europe and the rest of the world began picking up the shattered pieces.

Millions of American service men headed home. Slowly at first, then in a torrent. Shipped back to the United States, men were released at various points to return home, some permanently, others for a furlough of days or weeks, then to report elsewhere to finish their hitches in the various branches of service.

As these men came home, they often brought the influenza, which had been raging in Europe, on board returning ships, and in the camps here at home. Men were treated and then released, but some had a light case, or showed no symptoms at all. They came home. Family and friends were then, by virtue of close physical contact, unknowingly infected. So the 'flu' raged here at home. Adair County was not immune.

The first cases of this new influenza appeared in Adair and surrounding counties in the fall of 1918. By the end of January 1919 there was great concern about the spread and various precautions were taken. According to issues of the Adair County News, from January and February of that year, the following steps were taken:

ADAPT: the word today and several other days in history

By Phillip Coffey:

ADAPT. The word of the day and everyday is 'adapt,' among others like all those included in the scriptures of 'Faith, Hope, and Charity' - 'The Big three'. Everything evolves but we must always hold the scriptures in high regard. The scriptures are often the most difficult to follow in crisis of war, famine, plagues, or infestations that we presently fear.

In my lifetime the first crisis among many others on the national or world scene that I recall was the 'Cuban Missile crisis'. My understanding is that the proverbial 'doomsday clock ' approached the dreaded 12:00 o'clock at its closest in my lifetime at that point.

I was very young but I understood and could feel the fear among my older and wiser kin.

Kramp named ACA Ledford Scholar for female inmate research

By Scarlett Birge

Campbellsville, KY - Shannon Kramp, a junior at Campbellsville University from Danville who is double majoring in psychology and criminal justice, has been announced as an Appalachian College Association (ACA) Ledford Scholar with Dr. Dale Wilson, director of criminal justice programs and associate professor, as her sponsor.

"We knew we wanted to do a research project that focused on female inmates," Kramp said. "They're often called the forgotten offenders because they can't see their family as much as male inmates."

Kramp worked on a research study last spring focusing on learned helplessness in inmates. She volunteered to help Wilson and is now part of a team, including Wilson; Dr. Emily Hayden, assistant professor of criminal justice; and students Rebecca Satterly, a senior from Bardstown, Ky.; Taylor Elardo, a senior from Stockton, Calif.; and Jasmin Green, a senior from Radcliff, Ky., that will teach a program to women convicted of violent offences and incarcerated at the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women (KCIW).
