Public Alert: dangerous opioid Fentanyl mix found in TN

A warning is shared in this link from Amy Waggener from a newscast about a deadly mix of Marijuana laced with Fentanyl just south of our readership area in Tennessee. The District Attorney in Nashville reporting it's discovery said he "canít warn people fast enough." He indicated the mix is coming in vast quantities and is spreading fast.

It takes only a small amount of Fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, for a user to overdose on it within only a few minutes of taking it.

Mike Watson: The Permanent Settlement of Adair County/II

First Teacher/Installment II This is a historical sketch on the subject of Adair County's earliest permanent settlement as written by Judge Rollin T. Hurt, Columbia, Kentucky, 1919. The following, in the original tone of Judge Hurt, was published some years ago as "History of Adair County, Kentucky, by Judge Rollin T. Hurt" and edited by Mike Watson. A few clarifications have been made, as footnotes and/or in brackets, to aid the reader. A little early history of our town and county for those who are so inclined to learn more about their place upon this continent.
Previously on ColumbiaMagazine: Mike Watson: The Permanent Settlement of Adair County

by Judge Rollin T. Hurt
Prepared and submitted by Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

The First Teacher

In 1793 [Colonel William] Casey caused to be opened and taught the first school ever taught within the bounds of Adair County. At least it was the first school of which there is any record or tradition. He employed one Arthur Hopkins, who afterwards resided in Lexington, to teach school for the period of one year in Casey's and Butler's Stations, and in Casey's Station on Butler's Fork. For this service Casey agreed to pay Hopkins the sum of fourteen pounds and Isaac Butler, John Reynolds, Francis Pelham, John Harvey, Henry Rennick and William Butler jointly agreed to pay him ten pounds, which in all amounted to less than ten dollars a month. The exceeding scarcity of money in the county at the time is shown, not only in the meager salary which was paid to the teacher, but the manner of its payment.

Ann Pearson: Writer agrees with letter wanting more jobs . . .

Ann Pearson writes:
I often wonder the same thing; all we ever seem to get is a little fast food or something we already have too many of as it is. Why no industry to bring in jobs or better restaurants like a steak house or an Applebees. If you must travel to Campbellsville to eat out then you just shop there to so we lose tax revenue and money that could help with our schools, roads, hospital and etc... We see industry all around us but nothing coming here; why? - Ann Pearson

Eclipse: we shared a once in a lifetime celestial experience!

Russell Countian interviewed by the local newspaper while in Cookeville
Click on headline for complete story

By Robert Cumming

Monday eclipse morning bright and early around 7 my wife Laura and I loaded up and headed south via US 127 to TN 111. Cookeville was right on the eclipse band with a maximum 2 minutes 33 seconds totality exposure.

With no traffic we arrived around 9AM and headed to the west side of town and the wonderful public Cane Creek Sports Complex for viewing. It was a beautiful blue sky morning without a cloud in the sky. The local Cookeville newspaper crew made their rounds among the crowd gathered and interviewed us.

Suddenly out of nowhere about 11AM clouds began to move in from the east

Eclipse: 'Take your breath away' moment will cherish for my lifetime'

Liberty viewer listens to voice in a dream . . . and goes to Cookeville, TN

By Rita King

Had a dream last night, remember being told to go see the eclipse at 100%. A voice said, "You're this close...GO!!" I live in Liberty.

I listened, roused up my sister this morning and we set out to Cookeville, TN.

Traffic was fine, no problems. Found a nice spot in Zaxby's parking lot along with some friendly Somerset eclipse viewers and Zaxby's staff.
