Inspiration meets LWC Women's basketball in return to Billings

Sports, when used correctly, can be a vehicle to make an impact on a community, a school, a team, a person. It's a lesson the Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team has learned over the last year. . . after team was paired and bonded with an amazing family in Billings, MT, at the 2017 NAIA National Tournament . . .

Columbia, KY (Sun 11 Mar 2018) - Basketball -- in the heat of the battle -- means everything to those who play it. A win produces elation, satisfaction, sends crowds into a frenzy. A loss, the exact opposite -- despair, disappointment, self and team evaluation.

To those who lace it up to play this magnificent game or any sport for that matter, it can feel like life or death.

But those feelings are just that, feelings.

Inspiration meets LWC Women's Basketball at Billings



2018-03-11 - Billings, MT - Photo from Chris Wells, Lindsey Wilson Sports Information Director.
Sports, when used correctly, can be a vehicle to make an impact on a community, a school, a team, a person. It's a lesson the Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team has learned over the last year. . . after team was paired and bonded with the amazing family Jeff Walters in Billings, MT, at the 2017 NAIA National Tournament. Walters served as the team's honorary coach last year. Recently, Coach John Wethington, far left and the team learned that Waters' 13-year old granddaughter, Paycee, -- who spent time cheering on the Blue Raiders from their bench during last season's tournament -- was diagnosed with bone cancer. That's Payce in the center, holding the "Welcome, LWC" sign, greeting the team for another Blue Raider run at the national championship. The team is wearing "#TeamCasey" sweatshirts printed especially for the occasion.

Charles Marshburn: School Lunches?

Charles Marshburn writes:
The elementary school I went to in 3rd grade did not have a lunchroom per se. One could bring his lunch and eat it in a large room for this purpose. When the weather was nice, we could go home for lunch if we lived within a certain distance from the school and didn't take advantage of the privilege. This was in eastern North Carolina before the building of I-95 and Hiway 301 was in vogue. - Charles Marshburn

Kathy Jones comments on Chuck Hinman on school lunches

Kathy Jones writes:
I enjoyed the Chuck Hinman essay about your time at school. Many of us took our lunch to school and no one thought anything about it. All did it, even the teachers. Yes, you can purchase sandwich spread in a grocery store here in town. It does still taste good especially in chicken salad sandwiches. Have a great day. - Kathy Jones

Anon photo critic inspired by 'Cows on the Run, out having fun'

An anonymous photo critic was inspired - almost to action - by Anita Rees' classic photograph
of "Cows on the Run, Out Having Fun" in Chance, Adair County, KY
I got a huge kick out of the "Cows on the run" picture and since seeing it, that catchy phrase has been looping though the remnants of my mind to the tune of Sir Paul's "Band on the Run." A considerably smarter, wittier person than I could have a blast completely re-writing the song lyrics around those four words. . . it may take strong drink, a long walk, and a hearty dinner served on our finest plates of paper to clear my mind this brisk March day . . . Critique of Anonymous ex-pat, genius without peer Photo Critic

Chuck Hinman: When Mom put an end to lunch box thievery

It's Just Me Again No. 0065 School Lunches original post first appeared seven years ago in CM, on a corresponding Sunday, 2011-03-13 08:16:36, and is reposted on this Sunday as lunch pails are becoming too much a thing of the past.
charles.hinman@sbcglobal.net


by Chuck Hinman

Kids today would not believe that school lunches were not always served in a noisy school cafeteria. Simple lunches were brought from home in an assortment of lunch buckets, sacks, and yes, even molasses buckets with a bale and a lid.

Thanks for your In Memory Birthday edits

Thanks to everyone who helps us edit the CM Special Events - Daily List of Birthdays, In Memory Birthdays, and Anniversaries

We are especially proud of the growing "In Memory Birthdays" list in the section. It's a reminder that, originally, ColumbiaMagazine.com was designed to be an archive for historians, genealogists, and history researchers.

We do our best to maintain the accuracy of the list - but we also rely on readers to let us know when an In Memory event needs to be edited - that a link is broken, or that we have a birthday listed on the wrong date. It's easy for family members to check: Just click on the link - scan the obituary, and see if the birthday in the obituary matches the listing in "In Memory Birthdays." We'll update birthday submissions as soon as possible after receipt of the event, throughout the day.

To add a Birthday, In Memory Birthday, or Anniversary, simply send using any Contact/Submit button.

Special events are scheduled to reappear each year, as listed, until we are notified otherwise. -EW As always: If you need help with your emails to CM. We're just a call away phone call away at 270-250-2730

The 1934 abduction of Lewis Coffey (and subsequent events)

"Just a few weeks short of his 33rd birthday, Mr. Coffey had been part owner (along with David Heskamp and others) of the Columbia Motor Company for three years and was then the managing partner of the operation. He was also an active member of the Columbia Baptist Church and served as Scoutmaster for the local Boy Scout troop," JIM writes in this first of three installments, more thrilling already than any "Saturday serial" at the old Rialto Theatre, and for many, the first time this strange event has been re-told.

By JIM (c)

(Part 1 of 3.)

A screamer headline atop page one of the Monday, March 26, 1934 edition of the Louisville Courier-Journal proclaimed to the world at large, "Bandit Slain, Aid[e] Shot in Holdup."

But, you ask, what does a fatal shooting in Louisville have to do with bucolic Columbia? Plenty, gentle reader, a gracious plenty.

In early 1934, had the Adair County News published a list of Columbia's model citizens, surely Lewis Coffey would have been considered a first among equals.

Ann Heskamp Curtis: Of the Town Branch, and much more

With a great deal of interest in Coffey Cave in the past month, Ann Curtis Heskamp remembers, with Sammy June Hancock Cundiff, childhood memories of the two forks of the stream in a time when the waters were clear, minnows darted, and childhood explorers found delights - and imagined dangers along its beds and banks. From a time when growing up in Columbia was, in fact, idyllic.

The Town Branch

One of my favorite Landscapes from Columbia's past was the Town Branch.

it originated from Simon's spring in a field near Tutt Street, and wound its way down the valley along Hurt Street. It traveled on to run under Jamestown Street, Lindsey Wilson Street, and Fairground Street, eventually emptying into Russell Creek just a little west of the bridge at Campbellsville Street.
