Help Adair Co High School Win $100,000

By Shamarie Claiborne

For those that may still not be aware the Adair County High School is participating in a contest being conducted by State Farm which is called "Celebrate My Drive". All you have to do is go and make a commitment to drive safely and it teaches you two driving skills daily. Currently we are number 191 in the small school category and need to be in the top 50. We can do this if everyone will participate. You can "commit" once daily. We will keep everyone posted as we move up the ladder.

You will go to this link and put your email, birth date, and tell them if you are a parent, teacher, etc.. hit next and then it will take you to the next page where you will enter the school name - Adair County High School, City - Columbia, and State - Kentucky. You will then hit next and it will pull up Adair County High School -- you select it and hit next ... then it asks you two fun driving question that are educational. After you do it once - the next time it might take you 2 minutes, and you can enter once a day using each of your email addresses if you have more than one. The rewards are big. They are giving away 90 - $25,000 awards and 10 - $100,000 awards. Let's see if we can pull this off again like we did for the baseball team!

Here is the link to see the current contest leaders:

Hailey sports photo: From the big soccer game last night

2014-10-20 - Walter S. Reuling Stadium, 151 Holloway Dr, Columbia, KY - Photo By Hailey E. Waggener. Of the over 200 photos and 7 or 8 video's CM sports photographer Hailey E. Waggener took at the exciting Lindsey Wilson Soccer games last night, this was a family favorite, of her Mema. They were all great pictures, even the one taken in a 70 frame burst. Hailey had one reservation about the game. She missed the women's - where it would not have been so much of an issue: She kept asking for "More Fireworks!" She want to take a fireworks picture at the game! She realized what most people even in Columbia may not yet know. Fireworks means another score for a Lindsey Wilson Soccer team. Last night that happened almost enough to please even this young soccer player: 13 times. She already knows everything else about the game. She can kick a Basketball the length of the court. And as her father reminded me about how good the Lindsey Wilson Soccer Team is after seeing them last night, the Blue Raider men have world class footwork. Pretty strong for a family of University of Louisville soccer fans. - GRANDDAD, Ed Waggener. Paired Photo. See Also: CM Sports Photog Hailey E shoots wildlife.

Comments about: CELIA DOWNEY: Bringing jobs issue down to earth

Joyce Coomer writes:
Concise and to the point . . .

Add in that many people take their business outside the county and/or bring in outside businesses to do what could be done by Adair County citizens and it makes the business climate even tougher for small businesses.

By my rough calculations, there are somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 jobs in the county, if not more than my high estimate of 7,000 . . . We have the jobs. Let's support local businesses.

Joyce M. Coomer
Thanks, Joyce! You and Celia have nailed it! You've hit the nail squarely on the head. Just wish that nail were firmly seated with all to realize - the answers are all right here. Right here at home. - CM

Ralph Waggener: Smartest cows on earth are right here

Columbia's winning advantage in 1950s - : ' farm work ethic and big city ways here in Columbia' writer says.

Ralph Waggener writes
To John Halsey: The smartest cows on earth are raised in the country on farms, just as young children who learned how to work on the farm are the smartest. Smart children, smart cows. Used cows for sale is only a Adair County product as far as I know. I was raised in Columbia but my neighbor Ralph Willis raised cows on his 1 1/2 acre farm here in the city as did John Lowe, who had more acres just below our house on Jamestown Street and Lindsey Wilson College had a big farm not far behind our house. So, wee had the advantage of farm work ethic and big city ways here in Columbia. Just adding a little info for you, Ralph Roy Waggener as all ways outoforder. - Ralph Waggener

Rev. Jerry Cline, 70, formerly of Adair Co., KY (1944-2014)

Rev. Cline was a retired minister who served Columbia First Church of the Nazarene for 14 years, prior to which he had been an Evangelist for 15 years. He was very active working with veterans. He is fondly remembered here by not only members of the First Nazarene Church but also for his participation in so many community activities here. Many remember his wonderful sense of humor, his performances in clown uniforms and his appearances on his unicycle in parades. His humanity shows through, along with his love of animals, in the list of his survivors, listing his cat, Coco. But most importantly, he is remembered for his dedicated Christian service as a pastor at Columbia First Church of the Nazarene and the love he held for his congregation and they for him. He returned frequently to Columbia, many times to officiate at funerals, the most recent was in Columbia in the latter part of 2013 to officate at rites for several leading Adair Countians, the latest in November 2013.

Rev. Jerry Cline, 70, of Bowling Green died at 7:18 pm Thursday, October 16, 2014 at his residence.

Funeral services are scheduled for 2pmCT, Monday, October 20, 2014 at Johnson-Vaughn-Phelps Funeral Home, 901 Fairview Ave, Bowling Green, KY 42101, with burial in Fairview Cemetery.

Job Descriptions for elected positions requested

Charles Marshburn
How about showing the job descriptions for the positions the candidates are seeking. Position seems to be a better word than office. Charles Marshburn
Great idea, Charles Marshburn: It's a high priority agenda item. And, time permitting in the approximately 400 hours until the polls open at 6amCT, Tue 4 Nov 2014, we'll try, while trying to do our part to cover this exciting election. Voters are keen on the issues. At least one candidate's posts have generated more interest than we've ever seen in politics in the 18 year history of CM. Hope to have the posts available, soon. - EW
