Ralph Waggener: Hwy. 80 between Columbia and R Springs

The road to Russell Springs has high number of churches along or just off KY 80 - and plenty of Dollar General Stores. Tabulation needed, writer says.

By Ralph Roy Waggener
Editor, It's Just for a Smile News

Hey, Linda and Ed, may I make a suggestion to you local back road travelers? When driving to Russell Springs to eat fish we have noticed a rather large number of churches!

A good project for you roadies would to put count- a number - on the churches on or close to Hwy. 80 between Columbia and Russell Springs.

Seems like every trip we make we see a sign to a church just off of 80 or we notice another church.

You might pick up on the large number of Dollar Stores on this drive, too. Just thought this would pique both your attentions! Just a thought! - Ralph Roy

Each entrance into Columbia is making a first impression

Comments re photo 76648 Tourism Commission will take on this sign project

Ben Arnold writes:
Thank you Linda for highlighting this sign and Sue Stivers for looking at solutions. We all should drive into town from all roads and ask ourselves, "If this was our first visit to Columbia, what would you see and what impressions would be left?" First impressions are important. --Ben Arnold
Ben, you make a good point - I'll start entering town from different directions regularly, asking myself how we look. Hoping Sue and the Tourism Commission will succeed this time. On first hearing requests to address this sign, I felt a bit like the business owner that always goes in the back door while customers entering through the front door see a lack of attention to welcoming detail. - Linda Waggener

Watson: Happy New Year! 2018 will be a good one, God willing

By Michael C. Watson

Well Laid Plans...

Well, I laid plans last year, some went awry, a few did not. I have left so much undone that must be met head-on in this new year. I do not, as a rule, make resolutions upon the coming of a new year, for I tend to ignore them after a few days. Why disappoint myself then.

However, as an historian I do make lists of projects to complete in a span of time. To keep tract, a few years ago my dear wife crafted for me a large chalkboard from an ancient mirror frame. Thus, I list important research and writing tasks on the board and mark through them as completed. The list is long and the completed tasks are mounting, but today, January 1, 2018, I'll erase the finished ones and fill in with "new" ones--those that had not yet made the board.

Tips for what to do when the pipes freeze and no plumber

By Linda Waggener

Sharing a link to Seven Tips for Thawing Frozen Water Pipes tells you about events at our house this morning, right?

Right. We hadn't kept the water dripping. We forgot to make the rounds as the temperatures dropped to zero in the night to make sure heat was available to all the pipes we could see. Here's hoping you did, and have water flowing with no interruptions. Thankfully, ours is back on and we're rejoicing!

Sign may have to finally be addressed in dark of night

Comments re photo 76648 Tourism Commission will take on this sign project
Doug McCammish writes:
Sue and I tried to figure out how to get rid of that sign at least 10 years ago and had all the same issues - property owner, etc. Probably 6-8 strong men and a chainsaw in the dark of the night would work. - Doug McCammish
Doug, when I read your note all I could say was, "Well, I'll be," or in abbreviations Hunter Durham style, "L. i. B." If I replied in emoji-speak it would be the little face that demonstrates dismay/shock.
