Antioch Methodist Church Christmas Play: Review

Two thumbs up from critics Dr. Roger D. Smith and Rev. Elbert D. Hadley, for performance of "Christmas Leaves Cricket County,"before packed house in Sparksville, KY

By Roger D Smith DMD

Donna and I along with around 200 others enjoyed the annual Christmas play at our church, Antioch Methodist at Sparksville, earlier today.

Playing to a packed house the performers gave an outstanding performance. Although, I am far from a learned critic in the performing arts, I would give it two thumbs up.

I am adding the thumb of Rev. Elbert Hadley who offered a great deal of praise not only to the preformers but the content of the message.
My hat is off to all who made the play a great success, and thanks to those folks who came out to support our church's efforts. - Roger D Smith DMD

Link: Net Zero Energy House built in Maine

Net zero energy homes are being built in all parts of the country. There's a story worth following about a new one in Sweden, Maine, in the Thursday, November 29, 2012, Conway Daily Sun, online at Net Zero: Solar home is 'Designed for the Future. It's about a home which is a little pricey at over $400,000, but the story tells of a new one planned for construction which will cost only $225,000, not unthinkable when $0 utility bills are factor into the equation.

Carol Perkins: Are you all shopped out?

She remembers her childhood Christmas, when her parents never gave any of the Sullivan gifts. But a generous Santa Claus always came through with the presents they had told their parents they wanted. That worked. But she's not having the same luck as an adult.
The next previous Carol Sullivan column: Carol Perkins: Putting up Christmas Trees Thanksgiving weekend

By Carol Perkins

Are you all shopped out? Did you dive into Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Did you buy at least one big screen TV? An IPod Touch? A new version of your old phone? Not only did I not shop on Friday, but also I didn't shop Monday either. I am not in the mood-yet.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Words and pictures, a sonnet

Words and pictures
-a sonnet inspired by a photo of holiday lights by Lisa Comperry
I cannot see the thing you see unless
we both have shared a brought up this a way
enough alike to make a common guess
when faced with naming image on display.

I cannot feel the pang you feel until
we both have known a joy or sorrow strong
enough the blood to heat or body chill
when unexpected trials come along.

I cannot know the love you know before
we both have found a resonance maintained
enough to hear an echoing uproar
when stirred by slightest shadows unexplained.

I cannot find both words and pictures joined
enough to lessen need for yet uncoined.

- Robert Stone, 2 December 2012

Columbia Woman's Club tour is TODAY

By Vonnie Kolbenschlag

The Columbia Woman's Club's annual home tour is scheduled 1pm-4pmCT, TODAY, Sunday, December 2, 2012.. The tour includes the Willis and Traci Pooler home at 235 West Park Drive, Columbia, KY; the David and Cathy Martin home at 506 Young Street, Columbia, KY, and The Columbia-Union Presbyterian Church, 304 Burkesville Street, Colubmia, KY:

The Pooler Family Home, 235 West Park Drive (Bing Map), Columbia, KY

Willis and Traci Pooler with their three sons say welcome to their home built in 2003. This house of four bedrooms and three and half bathrooms offers numerous quality features such as a family room with a vaulted ceiling and an open layout second floor. Visitors will enjoy the special and novel Christmas decorations created by Traci, dean of admissions at Lindsey Wilson. Willis is athletic director at the college. Their three sons, Tanner, 17, Jacob 15 and Lucas, 9, help this house be a comfortable home lived in day in and day out accompanied by their one year old pet, a Lhasa Poo, Luci.

The Martin Family Home, 506 Young Street (Bing Map), Columbia, KY

David and Cathy Martin moved into a new home in 1994. Seven years later, an addition gave more room to the original and recently a major renovation brought the house an outstanding different inside appearance. Walls were removed to meld the kitchen, now filled with needed cabinetry and counter surface, with the large living room. The centerpiece is a newly surfaced stone fireplace - perfect for hanging the five Christmas stockings for David, Cathy, McKenzie, Blake and Blake's wife, Haley. The dining area now is large enough for great family gatherings. The bright white new woodwork outlines the beautiful colors selected for the walls. Please enter the door beside the garage. Parking is allowed on the lawn if the soil is dry. Benson and Webster, wagging their tails, will make you feel most welcome.

Their second "home" is the Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, a building that was constructed in 1818 by an early merchant in Columbia, Elijah Creel, who with his brother, was the founder of Creelsboro, a major trading center on the Cumberland River in the 1800s.

The Columbia Union Presbyterian Church 304 Burkesville Street (Bing Map), Columbia, KY

Kitty Frazier was a widow in 1856 when women did not usually have control of finances. She was ahead of her time, however, with a good sense of business. Records show she was granted a license in 1843 to keep a tavern, what we might think of as an inn - a place for weary travelers to rest and have a meal. Kitty also had some land. She donated a half acre to build a Presbyterian Church, which has been a place of worship for 155 years. Bricks were made and fired in a yard on Jones Street, the limestone steps and foundation were hand chiseled. During the Civil War the steeple was handy for a lookout southward from where rebel troops were likely to come.

Pause and listen to carols played - ones that have been sung in this sanctuary for over one hundred fifty years. There is much to learn and treasure from this oldest church building in Columbia. A reception in the Claycomb Room adjoining the sanctuary will give a chance to sample Christmas delicacies prepared by members of the Columbia Woman's Club while learning more about this church's interesting history. - Vonnie Kolbenschlag
