  • Seventy years ago, a curious little monkey was born.

    In 1941, Margret and H.A. Rey published the first of the Curious George books for children. The monkey and his pal, “The Man with the Yellow Hat,” have appeared in numerous renditions including a movie, cartoons and video games.

    The LaRue County Public Library and Lincolns Loft will celebrate the occasion with a “Curiosity Day” Saturday.

  • We often associate certain foods with different countries. Spaghetti is Italian, tacos are Mexican and what could be more American than apple pie? Did you know the very first apples ever eaten grew several thousand years ago in fertile land south of the Black Sea? The history and origins of different fruits and vegetables are as interesting and unique as their taste.

  • When Eddie Bowen wants to refer to a map of the USA, he need look no farther than a stone wall in the basement of his log cabin home in Magnolia.

    Bowen created the 8x15-foot map of the contiguous 48 states by cutting various shaped rocks into recognizable individual states and adhering them to a concrete wall.

    “I really owe this idea to my fifth-grade teacher, Jesse Ruth Hunt, who imprinted in our minds the shapes of the states so we could name them if we saw them,” Bowen said.     

  • Talking to Wesley Phillips gives a person a peek into our history of the past 100 years through the eyes of a man who has experienced changes from horse to rocket transportation, from word-of-mouth to I-phone communication, a man who has lived through two world wars and the Great Depression and is still going strong.

    This Sunday, Buffalo Nazarene Church, where Phillips and his wife Sue attend, will honor with special singing and a meal the man who’ll be a centenarian Sept. 7. The unpretentious Phillips, however, claims no credit for his longevity.
