    One for the record

    It happened once, that’s for sure, but may never happen again!

    So said Mrs. E.W. Ripy Jr., who made a hole-in-one at the Whippoorwill Golf course in Harrodsburg.

    According to her husband, she had only played golf about a half dozen times in her life. She was so elated over hitting the ball and not the green that she failed to see the ball roll in the cup.

    The hole was No. 8, which is a par 3 hole.

    With the holidays only a few weeks away I’m sure we all have a long list of things to do before the “big day” arrives.

    Whether it be preparing our house for guests, planning a large meal, or making travel plans to visit loved ones- there is always a lot to do this time of year.

    Barn fires

    Barns on the farms of Mrs. J. L. Sherwood and William Parker at Alton burned.

    The contents of both barns were destroyed. The Sherwood barn had tobacco and farm machinery in it and the Parker barn was filled with hay, tobacco, lumber, a tractor and disc harrow that were lost.

    Two workmen were shredding fodder at the Parker farm when the fire broke out and quickly spread over the barn.

    We were eating pizza — thin crust, perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • About 11 miles west of Lawrenceburg there is a nice white two-story frame farm house, landscaped with lots of flowers and a well-kept lawn. The distinctive house sits on about 70 acres of farmland.

    It was formerly the home of the late Earl and Louise Puckett. Now it’s the home of the Cuttin’ Up Country Style Hair Salon and Gift Shop.
