  • Back in the day, there were “men’s meetings.”
    These took place before the regular business meeting, often a couple of hours earlier. Not that the women didn’t have a voice in the business meeting, however; the lion’s share of the decisions were made in these “men’s meetings.”
    Such was one of these. Again, as a young minister, it was an eye opening experience. It all began with the normal task of filling the pulpit on an upcoming Sunday, while our pastor was going to be away in revival services.

    Seven families were evacuated as the Kentucky River flooded Tyrone to within six feet of the record set during the flood of 1937.
    Mrs. Annie Fint, Mrs. Susie Robinson, Herman Shryock Jr., A.D. Cox, Ray Morris Beasley and Raymond Murphy and Bob Alcorn and their families were moved out due to rising water.
    William Fint and Steve Thurman, residents of Tyrone, said there had been at least a 40-foot rise in the river with the water at least 4 1/2 feet over the small iron bridge leading into the community.
