Sheila Neat adds more memories of Sears to Carol's article

Sheila A. Neat

After reading Ms. Perkins article it made me think back when we were cleaning out my Granny Grant's house we ran across two of her catalogs, one dated 1953, a year before I was born, LOL.

I'm sending you some pics out of it. Thought you all might enjoy seeing some of our old memories.

Remembering Ed Waggener: A glue that binds our community

By Guy Babin

I saw this scene on our place along a small branch that feeds Cool Springs Creek this morning as I went out to feed the cows and immediately fetched the camera.

I've been looking for something to submit that I know Ed would have appreciated. Although I didn't know Ed Waggener that well, he was considered a friend and was a kindred spirit in many ways. As relative recent transplants from off, Ed was one of several locals who welcomed us generously when we showed up in Adair. Even before we made the move he, through ColumbiaMagazine.com, gave us a sense of belonging, a source of insight, and an awareness of what it means to be a part of this wonderful community.

Casey Co. traffic stop leads to felony arrest


NOTE: An arrest is not a finding of guilt. An individual placed under arrest is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.

By Tpr. Nick Hale

Casey Co., KY - On October 18th, 2018 at approximately 8:18pmCT, Trooper Billy Begley was on routine patrol on U.S. 127 2 miles south of Liberty when he observed a 2004 Hyundai swerving on the roadway. Trooper Begley initiated a traffic stop, making contact with the driver, 44 year old Dewey Anderson of Russell Springs.

Consent to search the vehicle was given resulting in a small amount of marijuana and a .22 caliber pistol being located by Trooper Zach Scott.

Trooper Begley placed Anderson under arrest, charging him with careless driving, DUI 2nd (aggravating circumstance), possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, carry concealed deadly weapon by a prior deadly weapon felony offender, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and rear license plate not illuminated. Anderson was lodged in the Casey County Detention Center.

Critics won: more coverage of pipeline decision

Using pipeline for liquids raised fears of explosions in Central Kentucky

By Greg Kocher, Lexington Herald-Leader

A company has canceled plans to convert a 70-year-old Kentucky pipeline from natural gas service to the transport of hazardous natural gas liquids. The project had drawn opposition in Boyle, Madison and other Kentucky counties as well as criticism from groups such as the Kentucky Environmental Foundation. Opponents were concerned about the risks of a 1940s-era pipeline carrying a heavier, more explosive substance.

Letter: Story of the Sears Catalog is true to heart

Celia Downey writes:
Carol's story of the Sears Catalog is true to heart. That catalog was filled with dreams. We three sisters spent hours turning the pages and scribbling lists of stuff we wanted. We loved it. We three connected. The experiences were binding. Perhaps one could say the Sears Catalog contributed to our culture during those times.

Carol, I felt your experience. Thank you --Celia

Youth hunters post good results with early muzzleloader season on deck. Many changes to hunting regulations will affect nearly all hunters.

By Kevin Kelly

Frankfort, KY - Many deer hunters rejoiced this past weekend over a break in a weather pattern that had been alternating between stifling heat and soaking rains.

A cool down coincided with the two-day gun season for youth deer hunters. It also excited archery and crossbow hunters getting into the woods, blinds and tree stands.

"It wasn't really fit to do much but go hunting," said Gabe Jenkins, deer and elk program coordinator with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "We saw good participation over the weekend."
