Mystery - is it a rock or fossilized dinosaur egg?



2023-06-11 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Cayce Davenport.
Brother Bill Davenport asked his creative daughter-in-law Cayce to send photos of this mystery he found in hopes that sharing it on Columbia Magazine might bring out possible geology enthusiasts to identify it.

The image is a compilation of different angles of the rock (or fossilized dinosaur egg?), as well as the inside where it has split half (top right). He highlighted a "shadow shape" found in the center to make it more clear in the photo.

Short takes from the Adair County News, June 12, 1923

By JIM

As the days wheeled toward the summer solstice of 1923, the Bank of Columbia opened its magnificent new quarters on the southwest octant of the square, its first permanent home since the Great Conflagration on the Square of September 1921 consumed its venerable quarters on the exit corner of Burkesville Street.

Just days afterward, renovation work started on the First National Bank building, located between Jamestown Street and the south corner, with the promise "The present building will be made practically new."

In the Purdy section of Adair County, two young family men lost their lives with the skiff from which they were fishing in the Green River hit a whirlpool and threw them overboard. The victims were Melvin Judd, 35, and Irvine Bennett, 27. Both gentlemen were married; Mr. Judd also had three children. Stated the paper, "The screams of the women in the neighborhood could have been heard for over a mile."

The Columbia Christian had just purchased a fine organ from Sanders & Hendrickson (of Campbellsville); Roy Rasner offered a "Special Surplus stock sale on Bicycles, Parts and Sundries"; and Police Judge M. Cravens sternly warned that a town ordinance "making it unlawful to keep any kind of business house, except Drug store[s] or eating houses" open on Sundays would "be enforced after this date."

Several "cards" (think classified ads) dotted the front page, including:

Carol Perkins: I've Had IT

Previous Column: What makes me happy

By Carol Perkins

I first must qualify the following story by saying that I admire grandparents who are bringing up their grandchildren. Five of us spent almost a week at the beach for a first birthday party for my great nephew, the young grandmother who was with me (and her two other grandchildren), and my daughter, Carla. We took the ten- and eight-year-olds to the beach, shopping, the pool, and out to eat almost every day that it wasn't raining besides visiting with the baby and family. They didn't lack for "fun."

On the last night, we said goodbye and I planned to take the kids to the pool, but the wind was dangerously rough. The young man wanted a particular food for dinner, so we found a place nearby. I mentioned a movie as we waited, but 10:30 was the next one. Too late. You would have thought I had stopped the kids from riding Space Mountain at the entrance.

Much needed rain arrives Sunday

Good Sunday morning! After a Saturday of bright sun, visiting the Farmers Market and picking blueberries, Sunday morning in south central Kentucky dawns cloudy with much needed rain.

Take your umbrella to church with you as showers and thunderstorms are predicted for afternoon and evening. Travel safely and thank you for keeping in touch. - Linda
