Stanley Perkins, 79, Adair County, KY (1938-2017)

He was a beloved Downtown Columbia person, a familiar figure one could rely on to liven up a day. He lived two blocks off the Columbia Square, and chose to walk most places he went, catching a ride with a friend for visits to nearby towns, hiring only an occasional cab to meet is active travel plans. He loved country music and had an encylopedic mind on the subject. He had a passion for playing cards, and was a master storyteller. He will be deeply missed. He was a member of a highly regarded South Central Kentucky family, the son of the late David & Louellen Perkins. He leaves one direct living descendant, William Stanley Perkins, Jr.

Joyce Coomer advocates for improved word skills

'The difference is that a peek from a peak should pique one's curiosity.' - JOYCE COOMER
Click on headline for complete essay

By Joyce Coomer

I am tired of seeing the misuse and misspellings of words when reading anything, not just things written by people who are supposedly "uneducated", but by people who should (and are supposed to) know better -- like editors and proofreaders for major publishing houses; I am seeing more errors in books printed in the past ten to fifteen years than I ever saw in books printed fifty to one hundred years ago.

Molasses: Gingerbread another delicious molasses dessert

Betsy Sharp writes:
In the Making Molasses in southern Adair County article they mentioned making molasses cookies. Molasses cookies are delicious, but there is also another delicious treat and that is Gingerbread made with molasses. A slice of warm gingerbread covered with a homemade sauce and if desired a dollop of whipped cream is also delicious! --Betsy Sharp
