Kentucky Color: Redbud Heaven II



2019-04-11 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge.
The Great Wooded South is Redbud Heaven this Spring. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, this is the most prolifically spectacular Redbud bloom of my lifetime.

I did want to share this White Redbud bloom with you on the corner of Jones and Greensburg Streets. It and a traditional Eastern Redbud stand side by side but the White one is in really bad health and I wanted to record its beauty for posterity.

Kentucky Color: Lesson in Physics

By Billy Joe Fudge

Went home for lunch and received a free, refresher Introduction to Physics course, courtesy of one of our local rock quarries, a chance placement of two empty glasses sitting in the bottom of our kitchen sink and silence.

While standing at the sink, silently contemplating my options for a quick lunch, the two empty glasses which were either barely touching or barely not touching, double dinged! In the immediate, two second aftermath my mind waxed back to the July 27th 1980 Earthquake which rattled Kentucky. I glimpsed Libby, her brother Todd and me waking Shay, Cameron and Prindle to get them out of our shaking house.

Then and almost immediately, the sound waves from a blast at one of our local quarries arrived. Sweet relief poured over me at the realization that this was not an earthquake. Thankfully, it was only shock waves from the blast which had dinged the glasses.

Then, I remembered from my Introduction to Physics and Chemistry class in high school taught by Ms Ethyl Scott and her very able student teacher Linda Grider, that shock waves travel faster than sound waves.

Thankful for good teachers and the "refresher" courses we get along the roadways of life.

By Nicole Burton

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Bevin joined U.S. Army Cadet Command and Fort Knox Commander Maj. Gen. John Evans Jr. at Scott Middle School in Fort Knox to proclaim April as the Month of the Military Child in Kentucky.

"We are deeply grateful for our many military children, who exemplify strength, resiliency and sacrifice just like their parents who selflessly serve our nation," said Gov. Bevin. "Kentucky's reputation as the most veteran-friendly state in America continues to grow, and we applaud organizations like the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission (MIC3) that work to help ease transitions for military families.

Carol Perkins: All any grandparent wants

Previous Column: Drive-thru pitfalls

By Carol Perkins

I hit the floor at 6:00 A.M to start waking the grandkids for school. For four days, I stayed with Luke (15), Eme (13) and Noah (11) at their home in Texas while their parents were on business trips. For the first time in years, I had them all to myself!

Since the first one didn't leave until 7:20, I got up early to have coffee, but I couldn't get the Keurig for work; so after twenty minutes of pushing, pressing, unplugging, and almost boiling water and dumping grounds that came inside the pods to make coffee the old fashioned way, I gave up.

Fully expecting to have to go through the routine of telling each child to get up, brush their teeth, comb their hair, don't forget their homework and all the other daily rituals I once went through with my own, I was stunned when I heard the patter of two different sets of feet upstairs just like clockwork every morning at 6:45.

Noah came down first.

Letter: What really is a hamburger

Vonnie Kolbenschlag writes:
So, what really is a hamburger? Some years ago when one of my sons was around four years old, he was in the back seat as we ordered from a fast food drive-thru. He wanted a plain hamburger. When we got his sack and handed to him in the back, we heard an angry howl. "Whatever is wrong?" we asked. "I wanted a plain hamburger and this one has a bun on it!"

That was a simple fix, but I guess either way - with or without a bun - it's a hamburger???? --Vonnie
