Eulogy for a Peach Tree

'Yesterday (August 11), when I stopped on my way home to observe the fruit, the once-vital leaves that were once suspended at a jaunty angle on branches of this tiny tree were hanging limply downward, their glossy green blackening from callously sprayed poisons.' - JOYCE COOMER

Commentary/Guest Editorial

To those who truly respect the Earth and mourn the needless and untimely deaths of any living thing, I wish to tell a story of unforgivable loss that occurred this week.

In March of this year, along the roadside one morning I noticed a bright pink speck. I turned my vehicle around and retraced my route slowly so I could hopefully identify that spot of pink. It was one of several blossoms on a spindly tree that had green leaves just beginning to emerge. These vibrant pink blooms brightened my mornings for several days, and I often stopped to watch them sway in gentle spring breezes.

Victoria Pike writes:
We sure are kin. My great grand mother was Victoria Rosina Hunter and my great grand father was William Barlow Rowe. They lived here on the farm Ed has so lovingly named "Miss Victoria's Pampered Ranch." I remember going to visit cousin Elva as daddy called her. Momma said she always had cornbread baked in a cast iron skillet and I would ask for a piece when we visited. My grand mother was Josephine Rowe Browning and my grandfather Chapman Browning. Josiah's first wife was Marietta Hurt, daughter of William Hurt who was one of the early settlers of Adair County. --Victoria Pike

New monarch butterfly waystation at Barren River

By Danny Sallee

Lucas, KY - The Garden Club of Kentucky will dedicate the latest of a series of Monarch butterfly waystations at Barren River Lake State Resort Park on Monday, Aug. 14.

Monarch waystations are gardens that provide milkweed, the only plant that Monarch caterpillars will eat, nectar producing flowers, and shelter for some of the millions of migrating Monarch butterflies. Monarch butterfly habitats are disappearing due to development and the widespread use of herbicides, and gardens like these help provide the resources the butterflies need for their migration to and from Mexico.

The ceremony will be at 10amCT, just below the lodge patio and pool, at Barren River Lake State Resort Park, 1149 State Park Rd, Lucas, KY.

Query: re Aaron Allison inheriting 160 acres in Adair Co., KY

Jim Allison writes:
I have researched at the KY State Archives a number of court cases involving my ancestor Aaron Allison. Many of them involve Alexander Noel stating that Aaron Allison inherited 160 acres from him in Adair County. Also stating that Aaron Allison was the executor of the estate. These court cases are in Adair County from 1845 to 1863. Included is an 1845 sale bill of Alexander Noel. I have not been able to find his probate file? Any ideas? I'm thinking they must be related in some way. I have heard that Aaron Allison's mother's maiden name was Noel, but I have never seen proof. (His father was Henry Allison who died in Oldham County, KY leaving a will there.) Thanks for your time. I'm hoping to do a bit more research at the archives in a couple of weeks.

Robert Stone Poetry: With words to speak their mind

With words to speak their mind:
a sonnet for the first anniversary of Poetry in the Boro
Ideas do not deftly come alive
until a willing worker builds a web
where time and place and theme together thrive,
where hope maintains through temporary ebb.

How many poets still remain unknown
unsure if what they write is poetry,
while self-proclaimed make claims much overblown,
while recognition swells as more agree.

Wherever safe and friendly places are
arrangers come with words to speak their mind,
where strangers kindly listen hearts ajar,
where friends discover likes with yours aligned.

As others write in ways that I cannot,
may all of us secure a monthly slot.
~ Robert Stone, 11 August 2017 The first "Poetry in the Boro,"organized by Kory Wells, was at the Green Dragon Public House in Murfreesboro, TN on 12 August 2016
