Logan County

Hello again from the land of Logan. A very special and unique county with lots of history in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I always loved teaching my hundreds of students about our history, our culture and why we exist as we do today. Several of my courses in American and World History are still run on educational state TV networks around the country. I still laugh when someone who watched the classes asks me if I am the Mr. Dickerson who teaches the TV courses or is it my son. I was actually...

A Loaded Gun

Fear can take a prominent place in our religious life. During the hot and cold wars against communism in the 1950’s a slogan by religious people was, “Kill a commie for Christ.” Violence against the enemy was accepted as an alternative to “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” (Matt. 5:44)

Adairville

Old Man Winter seems to want to hang on and I for one want him to let go. Enough already, I mean snow flurries on April 15th. Oh well, it is what it is and completely out of our hands. Lots of activity in Adairville. The Easter festivities were a success. Not as big of a crowd as we would have liked but probably a 100 or more and all seemed to have fun. At least they all had plenty of candy to take home.I have a correction on the time of the Sunrise Service at Calvary Baptist Churc...

WELL, I HOPE YOU MISSED ME LAST WEEK. I got an e-mail from the newspaper and O.J. mentioned that he had not received any words from me. Ask me if that sent me into a tail spin! I told him I thought I had but guess what; when I checked back….I GOOFED BIG TIME. So when I read my paper this past Friday I enjoyed Mr. Dickerson’s column; he told all about his new home. I truly hope he lets the public see his beautiful place of history someday. I cannot wait. I am one of those people wh...

Well, you remember last week the Daughter had her house all decorated for Easter and the Hubby was somewhat upset because she had not gathered all the sticks in the yard. So we played a little game of “pick up sticks”. But when she came home from work she asked, “Did a tornado come through here and I didn’t know about it?.

Logan County

Hello again from the old brick house on Cornelius Avenue in Russellville. The wonderful historic house I call home. With time, more research and many interviews I hope to compile a small book or booklet on the marvels of this very special house in Logan County. I do know that the first part of the house was built in 1830 and with a major addition in 1860. At one time it was the largest house in Russellville and one of the largest in western Kentucky.

Remembering victims of crime

National Crime Victims’ Rights is scheduled for April 6 through April 12, 2014. The theme of this year’s commemoration is “30 Years—-Restoring the Balance of Justice.” A silhouette of Lady Liberty holding the scales of justice profiles the week long calendar of events on the National Institute of Justice web page. This image is a reminder of the work domestic violence advocates do to access justice for those affected by the crime of domestic violence.

Hello again from Peach Blossom Hall overlooking beautiful Russellville and Logan County. What a time and a place to live in 2014. It seems like it was only yesterday when the new millennium began in 2000 or 2001 depending on when it started. I know I was a lot younger.

Hello from South Logan, what a gorgeous week. Love, love, love this weather. Makes you want to get out and get your hands dirty cleaning up after such a long and cold winter. I see a lot of people cleaning up around their yards and homes. I encourage each of you to get out and get your property looking it’s best. That encourages people and businesses to want to locate here when they see the town has a good sense of pride in its appearance. If you are having trouble getting your place cl...

Auburn

“The world laughs through flowers”, a quote from one of my favorite poets, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Well Ha! Ha! Ha! Auburn is in bloom. The flowering trees are ablaze with color and buds appearing on many others.Won’t be long until we’ll have redbuds and dogwoods in bloom. Of course that means the returning winters, dogwood, locust, blackberry, and cotton britches bringing up the rear. The latter always comes when everyone takes off their longhandles, preparing...
