Letter: Robert Ellis has done well with cow and calf pictures

Victoria Pike writes:
Robert, you have done well with your cow and calf pictures. The colors are absolutely beautiful. You should consider framing those. Hats off to you. You have my Pampered Angus beat on these. Iím sure others think the same.

I enjoy sharing my girls pictures with the readers and get many positive responses when Iím out and about. Once while out in the big city of Campbellsville, a lady came up to me and said arenít you the Pampered Angus woman from Columbia Magazine? That was the ultimate compliment and thrilled my buddy Ed beyond measure. He always enjoyed the tales from Greater Bliss/New Columbia. We must try to continue with the humor and wit Ed added to our stories. Mine were always a little bland but the captions he added really made the stories much more interesting. Keep up the good work Robert. I so enjoy the nature photos. --Vicky

Elizabeth Cook among local students selected to Gatton Academy

Bowling Green, KY - The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky has selected 96 Kentucky sophomores for the Class of 2021, and several local students have been selected, including:
  • Elizabeth Cook, Adair County High School, the daughter of Kelly and Nancy Cook from Columbia
  • Morgan Crowe, Casey County High School, the daughter of Chris and Candace Crowe from Liberty
  • Allicen White, Southwestern High School, the daughter of Stacey Murphy and Patrick White from Liberty
  • Jesse LaGrange, Homeschool, the son of John and Paige LaGrange from Burkesville

  • Elisha Keegan Fletcher, Russell County High School, the son of Steven and Joy Fletcher from Russell Springs

"We are very excited to welcome such a remarkable group of students to the Gatton Class of 2021! These students are coming from all across the Commonwealth to pursue their wide-ranging interests and engage in rigorous scholarship," said Director of The Gatton Academy, Dr. Lynette Breedlove. "Each year admissions decisions are difficult, as there are more exceptional students interested in STEM topics and advanced learning opportunities than we can serve. We appreciate the hard work in which public schools are engaging to find innovative ways to meet the needs of their students."

Applicants were evaluated based on ACT/SAT scores, high school grades, awards, extracurricular activities, responses to essay and short answer questions, and letters of recommendation. In addition to these criteria, earlier this month, 189 candidates were invited to interview with WKU faculty members, community leaders from across the Commonwealth, and Gatton Academy alumni.

KY Talking Book Library celebrates 50th Anniversary

By Kim Saylor Brannock

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) Talking Book Library (KTBL) in Frankfort today celebrated its 50th anniversary of providing Kentuckians with disabilities access to free audio and braille books.

The Talking Book Library is the only braille library collection in Kentucky as well as the only library to record digital audio books by Kentucky authors. Currently, there are 773 digital audio books in the collection with a connection to Kentucky. The books have been recorded by a group of 30 - 40 volunteers in the talking book studio in Frankfort. Books are available to patrons nationwide by mail, download or mobile devices.

"It is exciting to see how the Kentucky Talking Book Library has grown over the last 50 years from a few thousand books on vinyl to more than 100,000 audio and braille books. Thousands upon thousands of Kentuckians with disabilities have used KTBL to read books and stay engaged in the world. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next 50 years hold for KTBL," said Terry Manuel, Kentucky State Librarian and Commissioner of the Department for Libraries and Archives.

JIM: Goings on in The Shire, early April 1939

In early April 1939, the world teetered a bit closer to war. During the first week of that long ago "cruelest month," both Great Britain and France pledged to help Poland in the event Germany invaded the latter-named country. At virtually the same time, Hitler directed the German military, via a top secret missive, to start preparations for that very invasion as early as September.

But meanwhile, back in The Shire. . .

Life continued apace in Adair County. Everybody who was anybody (and few who fell short of that lofty goal), announced candidacy for some office or another, subject, of course, to the will of the voters in the August primary. Among those in the running was Herschel Tate Baker, seeking the Republican nomination for the 36th District (Adair & Taylor counties) Representative seat in the Kentucky Legislature. Mr. Baker promised that if elected, he would "support a law to increase the old age pension." (He carried the primary and won the general election in November to serve his third. non-consecutive term.)

A certain sign of spring came in the form of an announcement from well-known Columbian and local roller skating rink manager David Heskamp.
