Letter: Who will be responsible for inevitable injury?

Comments re photo 83983 Windows falling out of building on the square

By Victoria Pike

It certainly is a shame that we have allowed some buildings in our downtown area to get in such a sad state of repair. Many of our Downtown businesses have poured a lot of money into refurbishing their buildings, while others like the old Lermans building are literally falling apart. Windows falling to the street is not only unsightly but dangerous to all who walk our square. The owners should be ashamed.

I would hope the condemnation process speeds up before someone is seriously injured from parts falling off these buildings. My question would be, if someone is injured or even killed by falling debris, who is responsible for that injury?

Carol Perkins: Finding the right doctor

Previous Column: Flowers make me happy

By Carol Perkins

The GPS told us we had arrived, but there was nothing there but a group of buildings, none of which had the name of a doctor or a group of doctors.

Finally, Guy pulled into a parking garage, and we went inside a building that looked as if it was part of St. Thomas Hospital. We stopped the first person we saw and asked if he knew where 300 20th Avenue North might be. "Sure, that's the name of this building. Turn left and go straight down this hall." By the time we found the location, we had made a circle around Church Street, Charlotte Avenue, and Patterson and had almost stopped speaking.

We waited for an hour and a half.

Letter: Weekly trips to the mill

Mike Watson writes:
I've not been inattentive, just busy. David Rosenbaum mentioned 'a turn of corn'. Generally speaking, a turn of corn was the amount of grain in a sack that could be easily carried by hand or across a horse when going to mill. The amount would produce enough meal for a few days, thus many went to mill once a week.

Interestingly, 'wait your turn' is a phrase thought to have begun with men or boys waiting for their meal in the order in which they arrived. Also, a meal or time to eat, comes from the bread produced with ground grains served at each and every sitting. The use goes back at least to Old English. And corn as we know it in America was not known in Europe. Corn there was simply grain. --Mike

Nelson Co. friends build and fire howitzer

By Randy Patrick, The Kentucky Standard

The first time they fired the cannon at Jeep Coomes' machine shop on Nelson County's Harrison Fork Road, some golfers miles away at Cedar-Fil golf course heard it and came to see. There are still T-shirts hanging from the trees outside that Coomes and Steve Campbell shot into the sky.

"I got it in my head that I just couldn't live without a cannon," said Campbell, a retired deputy sheriff and collector of classic cars, Civil War artifacts and other odds and ends -- with the emphasis on odds. "I'm known for weird stuff," he explained, grinning. Campbell saw a Civil War cannon on YouTube and that's how it started.
