Poetry by Robert Stone: Variations new unknown

A sonnet for the birthday of Terri Ann Powell Haight
Sometimes we need to use another door
so we do not disturb what is outside
and trust that what may enter to explore
does not upset the choices we applied.

Inside we do the things we need and love
and love the more and need to celebrate
with thankful hearts beneath the stars above
when child observing wants to imitate.

Outside we watch the changing sameness move
unhurried through the seasons of the year
and time does not approve or disapprove
as variations new unknown appear.

When nature would exaggeration quell,
creation should imagination swell.
~ Robert Stone, 29 October 2018

Ninety years ago: a Columbia church building goes up in flames

On a midday Sunday ninety years ago--Sunday, November 4, 1928--a conflagration broke out on Greensburg Street just off the Square and when the last ember winked out long hours later, a relatively new church building lay in smoldering ruins. Still, heroic efforts by firemen saved two nearby structures from what seemed certain destruction.

By Jim

The Tuesday, November 6, 1928 edition of the Adair County News told the story:

HANDSOME CHURCH BURNS
Baptist Church, on Greensburg Street, Burns to Ground Just After Sunday Morning Services.

Columbia's most pretentious church building was reduced to crumbling walls and ashes last Sunday when it burst into flames just past the noon hour. Both Sunday school and regular morning services had been held and though afterward several of the members said they had detected something burning the odor was attributed to the fact that two new furnaces had just been installed in the church.

By Andrew Melnykovych

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) has completed a series of cases adjusting retail electric, natural gas and water rates to reflect reductions in federal corporate income tax rates that took effect at the first of the year.

In orders issued over the last week, the PSC ordered Columbia Gas of Kentucky and Duke Energy Kentucky to issue credits to customers to reflect the tax savings.

The two cases are the last stand-alone PSC reviews adjusting the rates of Kentucky's large investor-owned electric, natural gas and water distribution utilities to reflect the federal corporate income tax included in the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, which was enacted in late 2017.

Reminder: Compost your gourds, pumpkins and mums

Joyce M. Coomer writes:
There are also gourds and pumpkins that I'm sure will wind up in the dumpster but could be used in compost or simply split apart and put in woodland areas for wildlife.

The mums that are used for display purposes could also be used in compost. At the very least, once again, put in woodland areas to decay and return the plant materials to the soil. --Joyce, 270-384-4495
