No changes reported so far, with 85 counties reporting, in recanvassing

According to a tweet from the Secretary of State this morning (@KySecofState), 85 counties have reported results in the recanvass of the Republican primary vote, and no changes have been found so far in a review of the results.

In a press release yesterday, Alison Grimes said she expected to release results of the recanvass by 9am today. Spreadsheets are available for download from the SOS web site, although as of 11amCT, they don't appear to have been updated yet.
With the exceptions of Daviess, Fayette, Henderson, Jefferson, Kenton, Nelson and Rowan counties, which received an extension until June 1 to certify vote totals to the Secretary of State’s office, the results of the recanvass shall become the official returns of the county. All vote totals remain unofficial until the State Board of Elections certifies the results of the Primary Election.

Smith Creek Cabin had highly successful Annual Yard Sale

By Susan Pennington

My sincere gratitude is extended to Columbia Magazine for their exemplary service in publicizing our annual event. I could not be happier with the coverage they gave to us that insured people were informed of what was happening throughout the two days we held our sale.

I can't tell you how many people came to me and told me they saw the posting through Columbia Magazine and that CM was their sole source for keeping abreast of community happenings.

I highly recommend their services for not only the quality of service they provide but the extensive reach they have in their following. It was the best value for advertising dollars I have ever spent and I can say I have never ever been so pleased with a media service!!!! Thanks again Columbia Magazine for being the best in Kentucky!!!!!!!!! - Susan Pennington, Smith Creek Cabin, 521 Old Cedartop Road, Greensburg, KY (very near the geographic center of Taylor-Adair-Green Counties, near Coburg, KY)

Where in the World 26 May 2015 - Angel in Columbia Cemetery

by Linda & Ed Waggener

We honestly thought this would be an easy Where in the World is it, but only two people correctly identified it, Lynn Harvey was the first and Debbie Selby s answer came a little later.

- Lynn Harvey wrote the day this WITW was posted: "Is this the angel in Columbia Cemetery on Campbellsville Road?"

- And very observant Debbie Selby wrote yesterday, 25 May, 2015, "This angel replica is adjacent to a grave in the Columbia City Cemetery."

Both Lynn Harvey and Debbie Selby are exactly right. We've added a photo of the whole scene, taken from the parking lot at Rob & Ken Wilkerson's Assisted Transportations Systems plant at the corner of Fairground & Campbellsville Streets, and linked it to this story. - Ed & Linda
