Through the Fire youth group helps people in need

From Lisa Tucker

Through the Fire Worship Center's 3-7 year old Sunday School Class has been working hard in November. They have such big hearts to be so young. They asked if they could help some people in need. It's not about what you have or don't have, it's about what you need.

The Sunday School Class collected food for a few weeks and delivered to a local Blessing Box. They also stocked their own Blessing Box, located at our church at 24 Burnett Road, Columbia, KY, (off old Burkesville Loop Road near Walmart).

Medicinal plants intrigue fifth graders

2023-11-30 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Retired teacher Sheila Willis, at right, gave presentations on medicinal plants that would have been used to heal people in the Trabue family lifetime. She gave examples from the garden, starting with Lambs Ear which she encouraged students to lay against their cheeks. The softness of the leaves amazed them, even more after she explained how it could help with healing.

Sheila told the students, "say one of Daniel Trabue's kiddos woke up with a fever one morning... there would have been no clinics to get to. ... most folks would have used the herbs available to them in plants. Touching the Lambs Ear, students described it as fuzzy and soft. No bandaids would have been available, but Lambs Ear leaves could be used... acting like Neosporin... it also could have been used as a biodegradable toilet paper in those days. She had more examples and expects more next year.

Carol Perkins: Santa and Junior

Previous Column: Red or Gold

By Carol Perkins

Santa settled by the roaring fireplace and drank his hot chocolate. It had been a long day, and his work was grueling. Many kids now asked for technological gifts rather than trucks, cars, and dolls, so he had to work his tech elves over time, tiring out their little bodies.

"I may have to retire," he proclaimed while blowing his drink to cool it.

Mrs. Claus laughed. "You've been threatening that for years, but I haven't noticed you slowing down."

He continued. "Yes, but I've got these bum knees now and a hip that kills me every time I hike my leg to get into the sleigh." Santa had been complaining more frequently over the last few years.

She continued. "Why don't you stop falling down chimneys and stovepipes and go through doors? And what about all those kids sitting on your knees? No wonder your knees are shot. That huffing and puffing gets you back up, but it's the going down that kills you."

Making paint with nature's colors

2023-11-30 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Painting in Daniel Trabue days would have been done with natural colors from Mother Earth. Mary Anne Loy led the students in how to make their own paint - pick plants and berries, like poke berries, put them in a jar of cold water, then leave them in the sun for two weeks. She strained them and what was left was the natural colors the children were painting with in this picture. From left are Christina Burton, Kalen Scruggs, Brenden Shillings, Millie?? Thompson, Sophia Rowe, Reagan Hillock, and Amani Coomer.

Letter: Kudos to Kathy Parker

Jim writes:
Kudos to Kathy Parker for her spot-on comments about check washing and using a gel pen to help prevent that particular crime. (My favorite pen for this is the Uniball Signo 207.) A couple of other things:
  1. Buy checks through your banks. Yes, they cost more, but as a rule they also have more and better security features against attempted alteration than do those purchased elsewhere. Some will even change color if washing is attempted.

  2. Substances that may be used for check washing are inexpensive and are widely available. For example, acetone "bathing," one of most-used methods, is as cheap as a bottle of dollar store fingernail polish remover.

The Navigating Fox, most popular of Rowe's books

By Linda Waggener

Adair County native and award winning author Christopher Rowe was the guest author at Sixth & Main Coffeehouse in Shelbyville Saturday for his latest book signing. His new book, The Navigating Fox, is a fantastical fable of "knowledgeable creatures" in the vein of Brian Jacques's Redwall series, but for adults.

Since he started publishing professionally in 1998 - This is his sixth book - Chris has made his reputation set largely in Kentucky and Tennessee in the future because he believes the future happens everywhere, not just on the east and west coasts.

Bob Bell, "The Legend," honored for work in broadcasting

By Amber Hobaugh, Editor
Adair Progress

Bob Bell has had an interest in radio for just about as long as he can remember, hanging out at his grandmother's store in Creelsboro listening to the music, news and radio programs.

Then, one year he received a recorder as a Christmas gift and thus was a turning point for Bob's passion for radio.

"I would sit by the radio at my Grandma's store and record songs, then when a song would end, I would turn down the radio and do my little spiel before introducing the next song," Bell said, "I would even do my own newscasts reporting on the happenings around Creelsboro."

Eventually, Morris Gaskins hired him part-time, as WJKY was just starting out, to report the Creelsboro local news. This kicked off Bell's 20 plus year career in broadcasting.

Swimming: Hour of Power Relay raises funds for cancer research

The Lindsey Wilson men and women's swim teams took to the Holloway Center Natatorium pool on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, joining thousands of fellow student-athletes across the nation to celebrate the 18th Annual Ted Mullin "Leave it in the Pool" Hour of Power Relay for Sarcoma Research, sponsored by the Carleton College swimming and diving teams.

Despite a fierce rivalry, joining the Blue Raiders at the Holloway Center Natatorium was the Campbellsville University men and women's swim team.

This season marks the 10th year the Blue Raiders have taken part in the Hour of Power Relay. "This is one of my favorite team traditions because it's a way for two rival teams to come together to give back to a cause that's bigger than we are," head coach Alicia Kemnitz said. "We've been doing this for a decade and I don't see us stopping any time soon. Two great teams teaming up for a wonderful cause--it's meaningful in multiple ways."
