History: Growing up in the Hutchinson Community Church area

Stories by Prudence Hutchison Westholm, the venerable Jim, and Adair County Historian Mike Watson evoked memories of the scenic area of Adair County, especially of the wonderful Sunday School teachers at Hutchison Community Church and the one room school teacher, Ruth Thomas.
This story evokes new posit: "Out at Pigtail." ??? How did the area get that sobriquet? And how do the natives feel about it? -EW

Memories of Pelham Branch, PB Road & Hutchison Community

I am writing about this article (History: Frontier Justice - How Pelham received its name) because I found it very interesting since I grew up there in the Hutchison Community along Pelham Branch, and Pelham Branch Road. I lived there all of my young life.

JIM: Clearifies Jackman lineage; side-notes C.R. Hutchison story

Better Chronology of the enterprises of the Jackman Brothers, of the post Great Conflagration Hutchison & Patteson store, and a note from the News about the C.R. Hutchison family removing from the Pell Ham (sic) Community to Pea Ridge (Not the World Famous Pea Ridge of Cumberland County) in Columbia, KY. For those of more confused than ever learning that the capital city of Adair County had such a locale, edification and enlightenment would be greatly appreciated: Where was Pea Ridge in Columbia, Adair County, KY USA, at???

By Jim

A clearification regarding the lineages of the Frank Jackman (et. seq.) store and the J.W. Jackman (et. seq.) store; and bit more information about Mr. C.R. Hutchison.

Frank Jackman, who had established himself in Columbia as jeweler prior to 1900, expanded his business by opening a line of groceries in (or about) 1903. John W. "J.W." Jackman, a saddler by trade, carried a "stock of groceries, harness, [and] hardware."

Poetry by Robert Stone: What might come to be

What might come to be
- a sonnet for those who give advice
Confession clears the senses and the scene
for better knowing what is good and bad.
Discretion guards the mountain and ravine
where always wait the mockers and the mad.

Aggression cuts through chosen way of peace
for constant positives will miss a beat.
Oppression stings the heart that seeks release
from all the terrors life is forced to meet.

Obsession clings to what it fears to lose
for nothing seems the thing what would replace.
Direction shouts or whispers not new news
that letting go lets truth appear apace.

Would any choose from fancy be set free
and lose the hope of what might come to be?

- Robert Stone, 17 February 2013

History: Frontier Justice - How Pelham received its name

Some may find it just coincidental - we think it's part of a vast eternal plan - that in the span of a few days, Prudence Hutchison Westholm has revealed the source of the name for the Hutchison Community (History: The story & Lineage of C.R. Hutchison & Sons), and today, Mike Watson details source of the name Pelham Branch and Pelham Branch Road, for the stream and the Highway which flow at the foot of the hill on which the Hutchison Community Church, the center of the village still stands
Readers may remember that this scene was re-enacted in the Columbia Cemetery in October 2011 on the annual Ghost Walk, and about two months later at the Adair Public Library for a meeting of the Adair County Genealogical Society. Re-enacted by several Adair County residents, namely, one of the finest troupes to ever tread the boards: Barry Jones, Ken Hill, Kenneth Bennett, Gary Pike, Mr. Richard Phelps and Tom Gentry.

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

There are many, many beautiful spots in Adair County, or perhaps one could say there are very few ugly spots in Adair County. The area along Pelham Branch, as it has been known since (our) antiquity, has long been a tranquil region, often a place of contemplation. But that may not have been always so. Judge Rollin T. Hurt, famed jurist from Columbia, wrote of an instance of frontier justice at the hands of some of the earliest settlers of the area.

Tom Chaney: John Grisham - back on track

Of Writers and their Books: John Grisham -- back on track is a review of The Appeal. This column first appeared 17 February 2008

By Tom Chaney

John Grisham -- back on track

My favorite writer of legal thrillers is home again with The Appeal [Doubleday, 2008]. In the last couple of years John Grisham wandered off the beaten path of legal fiction with a true crime tale The Innocent Man and the delightful story of Italian football - the American variety, not soccer - Playing for Pizza.

Happy Tails: The Bond Between Us - Buddy

A couple from Vermont spotted Buddy eating from a garbage can in Columbia and searched to find his owner. Neighbors said the dog had been loose for several days. The couple called Sugarfoot Farm Rescue where the easy going boxer lived until adopted as a companion for an elderly woman. The dog and the woman became fast friends. But when the woman was taken to a convalescent home, Buddy became distraught. He worried and wouldn't eat. Then, on the day his friend came home, something dramatic happened - something which demonstrates just how strong the bond between dogs and humans can be.Click on headline for complete story and the rest of the story
Next earlier Happy Tail: Happy Tails: The Abandoned Aussies

By Peg Schaeffer

A couple from Vermont was in Columbia visiting relatives when they saw a dog eating out of a garbage can. The dog was skinny and not wearing a collar. They put him in their car and drove through the neighborhood looking for his owner. Where ever they stopped they got the same answer - he'd been seen wandering all week so apparently he was a stray.

They called me about him. They couldn't take him home with them as their jobs with an airline had them away from home for long periods of time. Yet they weren't going home until they knew he was safe. I agreed to take him in and either find his owner or a new home. I named him "Hogan".
