DRAMA IN THE SIMPLE - AROUND THE FRAME

Details Long-time Harlan resident Shirley Spindler and her “Chintz” quilt made of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

The Harlan United Methodist Church's fourth biennial quilt show was another great success.

PERFECT APRIL - NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

"Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south!
And the orchard-bloom is falling
Sweet as kisses on the mouth.

In the dreamy vale of beeches
Far and faint is woven mist,
And the river's orient reaches
Are the palest amethyst.

Of the lure of April days;
Every piney glen is ringing
With the maddest roundelays.

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills."

Details

"Oh, I wish that the winter would go, and I wish that the summer would come, and away from the tents on the hill, the little brown bees would hum . . And the robins their pipes would trill, and the woodpecker beat his drum, and away from the tents on the hill, the little brown bees would hum . . ." so sang Daddy every late winter when the days were bleak and it seemed that spring would never come.

I can hear his voice even now echoing down through the years, as winter takes another swipe at...
