January 24, 1978 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

The article below first appeared in the January 24, 1978 issue of the Adair County News. Topics included great Adair Countians, snow removal and a pending population boom, and the Herculean efforts of the Dairymen to keep deliveries flowing despite that January's snows. --Pen

By Ed Waggener

Bobby Loy, the hairstylist, thinks there ought to be a census of great people who have started life in Adair County and have gone on to become successes in other areas. He cites Art Gowan, who became a to manager in Whirlpool; Walter Baker, who is now a State Senator from Glasgow; Jody Richards, who is now State Representative from Bowling Green; Western's Jim Richards; and General Barksdale Hamlett. "There's more people who have gone away from here and made big names for themselves than just about any town our size," he says.

Personally remembers General Hamlett
Loy was in the service when General Hamlett was in charge of U.S. forces in Germany. "I stood inspection under him three times," Loy remembers, "but he never asked me a question. Of course, I couldn't talk to him unless he talked to me, but I was hoping he'd ask me where I was from, as he did about every fourth or fifth soldier in the ranks." Loy says it might have been fortunate for him if Hamlett had known he was from back home. "I heard he was looking for a driver, and I would have loved to have had that job, but he didn't talk to me and I never got the chance. So I just served my time."

Squaredeal wouldn't trade with J.C.
The earthly J.C., that is, the one in the White House.

Letter: Poetic praise for Robert Stone

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
To Robert;

I have no love affair with sonnets,
They're often a sour gin and tonic.
But this one strikes a cord
Of joyful past oh Lord;
A hot biscuit with butter upon it! --BJF

Poetry by Robert Stone: Without a second thought

A sonnet for the birthday of Lisa Comperry

What gift is better than a gift handmade
where seeming duplicates are each unique
for human hand is never constant stayed
on proper tension in unbroken streak.

What thought is better than a heartfelt hope
where opportunities are choices apt
for passions driving one to learn to cope
on every day in ways before untapped.

What joy is better than a silent love
where action tells what words can never say
for satisfaction comes not from above
on declarations loud soon gone away.

Skilled hands without a second thought betray
the simple thread into complex crochet.

--Robert Stone, 31 December 2019

Heavy rains possible this week

The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY, is warning that the latest forecast models continue to indicate an increasing threat of heavy rainfall and possible flooding issues later this week and into next weekend. A cold front will approach the region by late week and then is forecast to stall out across the area. As this occurs, there is the possibility that multiple waves of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms may transverse the region.

Currently, soil conditions are saturated across the region due to recent rainfall events. With this additional rainfall expected later this week, flooding problems are likely to develop, possibly very quickly in some areas. The highest risk of flooding will be in areas that are low-lying and have very poor drainage. In addition, area low water crossings will be under the threat of flooding.
