Ole Dave Rosenbaum: Col. Pole's most profound philosophy

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
The Beanpole piece caused me to pull out my copy of The Best and Worst of Beanpole, given to me by my mother in 1971. On page 57, I found the following paragraph describing your good wife's early newspaper work.

"Speaking of Linda, she is the wife of Ed Waggener and a good newspaper woman from the word go, Also, a fan from the days of Beanpole on the radio. If there was ever such a thing as the better half of a man, Linda was to Ed; he depended on her for everything."

Also, at the end of the book you find a Sketch of the Author which gives perhaps the most profound philosophical (bordering on theological) statement ever to fall from a pen. Col. Pole, in recounting his life's strivings states "From job to job I searched for an easy way which was not". - Dave Rosenbaum

Wayne Baxter: Staging theory on 'UF0' Mystery #79558

Wayne Baxter writes:
I think it is a black garbage bag someone put some hot air in, tied a small weight to what was the open end, released it (or had someone else do it)as he waited with his camera. --Wayne Baxter

95 years ago: Odds & ends from early July 1923

Jim recalls a year with so many events which fit into the big topics of today, with seminal developments of what are the main conversation at this, occasioned by the grand re-opening of Nanwood Market on Friday, by the progressive preservation revival movement pervading Columbia, this summer, and details more than marginally touching on recollections attending Blackie Nixon & Bonnie Willis Smith's approaching ACHS Class of 1958 reunion events.
  • Adair County celebrated the 4th of July in style in 1923.
  • The host of party in the woods, with 'Band of Indians' who drew large crowd, was a candidate, with innovative campaign methods not seen until Dr. H.C. Randall, dropped flyers for his candidacy for school board from an airplane or the Big Pencil appeared in the 2014 Mayoral contest. The candidate in 1928 lost to a towering figure in Adair County history. The Indians? Actually, real ones, but not the ones you might guess. If Darlene Campbell's fascinating presentation on the Melungeons intrigued you, this will too.
  • Chatauqua here in full force Friday, July 6th, providing splendid entertainment, akin but not scarcely matched Theatrefest! in 2018.
  • Media for 'Edison machines' - arrived at Herb Taylor's - media now as forgotten as Zip Drives in the computer age.
  • The First National Bank was undergoing complete renovation in 1928. And temporarily occupied a building in the Second Quadrant it's permanently occupied for several decades now.
  • Dillon Drug Co. began two year stint in 200 Quadrant of Downtown Columbia, just prior to the arrival of one of 20th Century's most beloved citizens of all time - from Campbellsville. Hundreds of Columbia & Adair County High School Students never missed a day at his place, a visit at least once a day was routine for practically every student at Lindsey Wilson Junior College, it was the tearoom of the days for sophisticated ladies of the days, and for many, the location provided entry level employment for future leaders of Columbia.

By JIM

By the early summer of 1923, the Great War had been over almost five years, women in the United States had full suffrage, Prohibition and speakeasies uneasily co-existed, increased wages were increasingly giving rise to a consumer society, and America roared.

In Adair County, however, the ebb and flow of life continued at its accustomed pace, punctuated by the occasional scofflaw, blackguard, gun toter, or moonshiner.
