Fullers celebrate

70 years

by John Fuller

John and Kathy Fuller of Albany, traveled down Memory Lane to the small town of Point Isabell, a small town near Marion, Indiana where they stood on the same steps at the church where they were married on June 18, 1949.

They retired from Delco Remy in the 1980s and moved to Clinton County, Kentucky.

Growing up in Indiana, there were many family farms in the area and we both were from big families. We lived just down the road from each other.

    Hay Day

    May Day Hay Day

    I can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world. I absolutely love living in Clinton County and just this week I stopped to make a picture of my neighbor working his hay and take in a fresh breath of newly cut hay. Working in hay is an art and one that I enjoy seeing as I drive around rural America.

    The world has changed

    Boy has the world changed. Not for the better I think.

    When I was a kid, I grew up watching “I Love Lucy,” “Andy Griffith,” the “Beverly Hillbillies,” etc. Now what do kids see on TV? Sex, dirty language, etc. Back in my early days, if a dirty word was said on TV, that would have been a disgrace. Now it is a common occurrence.

    When I grew up, we went to church every service Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night

    A Tribute Worthy of a Good Man

    by Randy Speck

    Clinton County has lost a good man. David Gene York began teaching in 1969 and was teaching when he died last Thursday. Always kind, caring and compassionate, he instructed hundreds of us over the years in different subjects, but the biggest lesson he taught us, one that we definitely should learn from, was how to be an example of Christ.

    His daughter, Sherry, said “My daddy would want everyone to know he was different because Jesus Christ was

    Remembering Coline ‘Hay’ Gibson

    My condolences to the Hay, Gibson families.

    I was born August 26, 1935. At this time, Coline Hay was teaching my siblings at the one room school in Shipley, Clinton County, Kentucky. My siblings were James, Juanita and Printice “Bud” Willen. My parents named me after their teacher, Coline Hay. I was also named Vallie after another teacher, Vallie Ross. I always told everyone I should be a smart person because I was named after two school teachers. Ha! Ha! I never had
