Letter: the American Robin has a varied diet, including berries

Vonnie Kolbenschlag writes:
I have seen robins descend upon a holly tree and strip it of every berry. The American Robin (turdus migratorius) (according to my garden magazine ) eats beetle grubs, caterpillars, worms and grasshoppers. They also disperse fruit and berry seeds from eating berries.

Since robins feed mostly from suburban lawns, the Cornell University Laboratory of Ornithology notes that a dead robin can be an indicator of chemical pollution. A study by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center found higher levels of lead in the blood of suburban robins than in that of rural robins. Lead, left over from leaded gasoline and paint and herbicides contaminate the dirt robins - and other birds- ingest while dining on worms and insects. Insecticides applied to plants indirectly kill birds who eat insects and berries. Insecticides and herbicides upset the natural balance. --Vonnie

Letter: Robins left evidence of their diet all over our cars

Wendy Butler Burt writes:
According to the Smithsonian Institution's "Birds of North America," Robins eat earthworms, insects and, in winter, berries and fruits make up the bulk of their diet. The American Robins, very common members of the thrush family (Bluebirds also are thrushes), can strip an American Holly of all its berries in one day. They did this every year to an enormous holly in our yard, and left evidence of their diet all over our cars. --Wendy

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
They do indeed feed on seeds, particularly drupes, during extended hard freeze and snow cover events. I agree that worms are their favorite food source but all of God's creatures, including mankind, will eat what is available to them when their favorite is unavailable. --BJF

Letter: In support of Marsy's Law

Ann Pearson writes:
Funny how these attorneys are so concerned about the criminals and their rights. Did victims get to call their family and say goodbye, have a last meal together, call their priest/minister, get an appeal or have someone represent them before they were murdered/raped, etc...

I think it's time we think more about the victims and their families and their rights than those who ignore the law and commit such acts. Our justice system has become a joke; murder someone and it's all about you, your rights, your needs; can't be made to work, just sit on death row for decades and all the while victims families see no justice; many die before it's carried out. It doesn't seem much like justice to me! --Ann

Oil Well Branch bridge in Metcalfe County has reopened

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Feb. 12, 2019) - The KY 496 bridge over Oil Well Branch in Metcalfe County has been reopened following an extensive closure which began on January 24. The detour has been taken down and motorists can use the bridge.

A stroll to Hodgenville - 90 mile round trip

By JIM

Fred Rainwater, a tall, lanky lad from western Pulaski County and unquestionably Lindsey Wilson's first athletic superstar, dominated the Training School's Field Day competitions from 1907 through 1912. In 1910, he represented Lindsey in the foot races at a track meet in Danville and took top honors in the one- and two-mile events, and finished second in the half-mile run.

However, one of his lesser-known feats occurred one hundred ten years ago this week. The February 17, 1909 edition of the News reported that several people, including Mr. Rainwater, had "represented the Lindsey-Wilson at the Hodgenville celebration" of the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's birth.
