By Cathy Luttrell

Due to big lead at beginning of 4th quarter, Coach Gay was able to play most of the Junior Varsity players who still held their own against Caverna's starting team. Even though they gave up Caverna's only touchdown of the game, they also were able to score a touchdown against the Colonels.

1 Graf Editorial: The need for crosswalks - protect LWC students

Walking Columbia

Only those walking Columbia really see urgent needs. Linda and I were out Sunday and noticed a problem which should be immediately addressed. Two young women, who appeared to be Lindsey Wilson College students, were trying to reach Miller Avenue from the sidewalk on Jamestown Street. They waited a good five minutes. Finally, they dashed across the road. They made it. But if either had stumbled or tripped in the heavy traffic, a tragedy might have ensued. Point is, this is just one of perhaps dozens or a hundred or more situations where well marked crosswalks should be a part of the Columbia scene. I, for one, can't wait until those who are walking Columbia share their observations. - ED WAGGENER

Charles Marshburn: His lunchroom lady just had more time

Charles Marshburn writes
I suppose Mrs Schneider (the lady who ran our lunchroom) just had more time! We used to go for seconds on certain items and more than once I remember her saying, "Give those boys some more!". "I've got to feed my boys"! Yes sir, she made the time! - Charles Marshburn
Thanks, Charles Marshburn - And I know you mean no criticism of the excellent personnel who follow guideline to run public schools' cafeterias. It's not their fault that the meals may not be the best a child gets served that day. But there is a better way. I couldn't help but bookmark (Lyon) the segment Anthony Bourdain did on public school lunchrooms in France. They serve wholesome foods. The children get sit down service. They get seconds. They love the food they get. And, it cost them less per meal for food than an American Public School pays. Wow!

Today, TUESDAY with CM, 1 Sep 2015

Haiku by Robert Stone for September 1, 2015:
Unbridled child claims
this world a world of laughter,
not a vale of tears.
--Robert Stone, Tuesday, 1 September 2015.
-1000 haiku countdown finished, now for some more days, Day 1449

Most popular today, and it's from CM archives
A picture from almost two years ago, December 12, 2013: Travel, Forbus General Store: Whittling man, Roosevelt Upchurch which accompanies the story, Day Trip Travel: Another visit to Forbus General Store . The caption for the photo reads:
"Couldn't help but think of back home - Slower days, better days, when whittlers lined the benches at the Adair County Courthouse. Roosevelt Upchurch, the lone whittler Saturday, December 21, 2013, offered to let me sit and whittle with him. Even in this bastion of preservation, he among the few who practice this rural combination of art, meditation and relaxation. Couldn't help but remember John Shelley's famous poem, "The Whittlers," or the promised - still to be fullfilled - intentions of Hill & Jones to re-establish the honored practice in Columbia, and Wid Harris' manifested standing offer of free cedar whittling sticks at Town Barber Shop - and the sadness that no one is taking them. In Fobus, with devotees like Roosevelt Upchurch, the institution seems safe. "

A Note: Sadly, Mr. Roosevelt passed yesterday, August 31st. five weeks prior to his 80th birthday. According to the funeral home (Jennings, in Jamestown , Tenn.), arrangements are incomplete as of this morning, but this link Jennings Funeral Home has a link to his name. Hopefully, a complete obituary will appear later today or sometime tomorrow. - jim

Remembering Nora Hammond: She was a loyal friend

About: Nora Porter Hammond, 63, Russell Co., KY (1952-2015)

Nora Porter Hammond was my loyal friend from the time we were kids. We grew up together and attended church together at First Baptist in Russell Springs. In later years, separated by hundreds of miles, we exchanged Christmas cards and paper letters in this age of electronic communication. When first my father and then my mother passed in the late 1990s, Nora came to pay respects and give support, and for the past several years she had taken care of my baby sister's grave, keeping it clean and decorating it with the passing seasons. I'll never forget that. May she rest in eternal peace. - Jim Garner.
