  • Ed Bousman spread the
gospel around the world

    Ladies and gentlemen, in the 1960s, Ed Bousman had a dream. This dream became a reality when Ed went to his congregation at the Lynchburg Church of Christ one Sunday morning with a challenge for them to go home and ask God for something impossible. Ed took his dream to God that day, asking for the impossible – a nationwide radio broadcast.

    In 1876, Hillsboro was still Hillsborough, and when the Fourth of July rolled around, the town held a “feast of patriotism” that started early and lasted all day as 20,000 people celebrated the nation’s birthday. There were flags, banners and other decorations all around. There was a procession, oration, music and fireworks. It was, indeed, “a grand gala-day.”

    In my lifetime, there has been one reunion I’ve attended more than any other (by far) – the Gossett Reunion in Pricetown, a reunion that dates back more than a century. The reunion is held the third Saturday in June by the descendants of James Worth Gossett (1847-1922) and Sarah Ann Roberts Gossett (1843-1932), who are my great-great-grandparents.

    Ladies and gentlemen, don’t look now, but Father’s Day is rapidly approaching – it’s Sunday, June 20, 2021, to be precise. Since we were in 1961 in last time, maybe we can look around town to see what folks were getting for dear ol’ Dad 60 years ago.

    Of course, as it is now, life was happening back in the 1960s, so I thought we’d take a peek at what was going on in those days. Let's take a look back at June of 1961 – 60 years, a nice, round number.

    Ulric Sloane passed away Jan. 23, 1912 at the age of 61 and is buried in the Grandview Cemetery in Chillicothe. As we observe Memorial Day in 2021, may we heed the perspicacious words Sloane spoke 140 years ago in the Hillsboro Cemetery.

    Ladies and gentlemen, back in the 1960s last week, we went to the Moon – Moon Tractor Company – to look at lawnmowers. This time, let’s drive the Studebaker over to Burch Tractor and Implement Company on North West Street and see what kind of mowers and deals they have there. We’ll see if we can get a “Burch” cut, so to speak.

    As I browse a newspaper from the spring of 1968, I stumble over an ad from Moon Tractor Company, which bills itself as a “Lawn Mower Headquarters.” And, yes, Moon Tractor is very much in business to this very day on West Main Street in Hillsboro.
