Billy Fudge: On the name - March Lilies vs Daffodils

Great Wooded South Poll is in, "political correctness is out. Only 3 percent of locals + those from off refer to March Lilies as "Daffodils."

By Billy Joe Fudge, Dean
Great Wooded South University's School of Vernacular Authenticity

As we all know "political correctness" has run amuck and in the process has robbed us of many of our most cherished and I might add, innocent traditions. However, in order to not offend those with loose, sandy, shakable foundations and in the spirit of "political correctness", I will not reach into the inner darkness and bring any specific examples into the light of day although there are many at play.

Report to the people: GRAS had busy, good week!

Cleanliness and sprucing up, are top priorities at Green River Animal Shelter in the transformation of the ongoing improvements at the facility, initiated by Magistrates Daryl Flatt and Sammy Baker, and given a powerful absolutely essential impetus by Adair County CJE Mike Stephens. It's now a very pleasant place to visit and see the potential it has. Saturdays, 10am-2pmCT are great times to take the family for a visit they'll never forget - and maybe spot an opportunity to pitch in and help out. Volunteers are important. - CM
And don't forget, the $50 adoption fee Special is still in effect, officially until March 31, 2015. We'll report as soon as we know whether it will be extended or changed.

By Kim Sallee, Director Green River Animal Shelter

Another very busy week at Green River Animal Shelter and that's the way we like it!

Lots of dogs (especially puppies) have found new homes and we want to thank everyone for considering a shelter pet.

We also want to thank everyone that has stopped in to say hello, and who also has donated money, cleaning supplies, dog/cat food and bedding. You have no idea how much we appreciate it and we definitely put it to good use.

Kentucky Color: My Favorite Color - Yellow

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

March Lilies can come in nuances of yellow from a pale which is almost white to a dark which is almost gold.

All the colors are beautiful but to quote the late Marian McPartland of NPR's Piano Jazz, yellow is "my favorite".

I might be proven wrong but I suggest that the yellow like this one is the original or vintage March Lily. I'm kinda partial to vintage plants. That could be because I've spent a major portion of my life among the "natives", so to speak.
