2016-04-28 - Courthouse annex, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed and Linda Waggener.
Thursday, April 28, 2016 is officially Pay It Forward Day -- promoting community spirit through acts of kindness, doing good deeds for others without asking for anything in return except that the goodness be passed on. Adair Countians already do so much for each other that our place is known as a really nice place to come home to. Adding the proclamation helps spread the idea, hoping this year for 10 million acts of kindness around the world. At the signing were from left: Greg Gover director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; Dwight Sears, Jr., Kentucky coordinator for TEAM USA Pay It Forward Day; Adair CJE Michael Stephens; Columbia Mayor Curtis Hardwick; and Tiffany and Eddie Kessler with their son Kasey Blue in his arms.

Upcoming Election Events:
  • 19 days until the May 17, 2016 Kentucky primary election.


FOLKS, This MYSTERY needs solving soon!

Junior Stotts sent this photo to ColumbiaMagazine.com with the note: "Be the first to guess where it is at and win a prize." Now, that prize probably is at least a pretty good breakfast for one, but we don't vouch for it - that's between the winner, the good Lord, Bro. Stanley, and Junior Stotts. It should be considered a bonus to the bigger thrill of the fame of knowing something. No one at CM knows. But we do know Junior ranges over a big territory from The Flatwoods and sometimes Columbia, down to Picnic and Bird Ridge, over to Breeding and down into parts of Cumberland County, where he and his boy are currently building a major water pipeline. The barn likely has a historical significance, if that is any hint. Respond using the Comments button with this photo. Tell where it is, maybe who built it, what, if anything makes it historically significant. - ED WAGGENER

Some customers you can always depend, they are here as soon as they smell the coffee. This wonderful friend is "Butch", Larry from Next Door's dog. Butch is helping us investigate the fire which destroyed Norvel's barn night before last, and he's on the case of some missing tires from a neighborhood business, as well. Both cases have been the talk the last few days around here. - Melissa Moore

What is it: Strange object which perplexed experts at Breeding


2016-04-28 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Junior Stotts, Inquiring, Curious Mind.
Todd Stotts, Junior Stotts brother, came in to possession of this small, open faced iron dome and wonders what in the world it is. Those are spikes or nails affixed to the base, which is very heavy. The device is about four inches tall, to give on a perspective. To give you an idea of just how hard it's been to get an idea of what it is, it stumped to usual panel of experts at the Hwy 55 Country Mart in Breeding, whose regulars include people from everywhere: Columbia, Edmonton, AND Burkesville. If anyone knows, even professional pickers, Todd & Junior would be much obliged. Answers can be forwarded to them or, better yet, to Contact @ ColumbiaMagazine.com or call me at 270-250-2730 and let the wide world know. - Ed Waggener

Carol Perkins: Manifesto - the case against chickens

Remembers the only true reward was the when the chickens' laid eggs which made their way into her grandmothers famous dump cake.
Next previous Carol Perkins article: Carol Perkins: The most idiotic thing I've done in my life

By Carol Perkins

Chickens are nasty creatures. Those of you who raised chickens back in the days of chicken coups and henhouses in the back yard know this is true. Even when I visited my grandmother and begged to collect the eggs, I knew they were nasty, dangerous and confrontational. As I lifted a chicken "leg" from her nest, she could either cooperate or peck me. Being nice to the chicken did not assure me of her being nice to me.

MSC Tournament: Columbia a hot baseball town today, tomorrow

Lindsey Wilson Baseball's MSC Tournament Opening Round series against Cumberlands moved to Thursday and Friday, April 28 & 29, 2016, to avoid weekend weather.

By Charles Balcom

COLUMBIA, KY - The Mid-South Conference Baseball Tournament Opening Round three-game series between Lindsey Wilson and Cumberlands (KY) has been moved up one day to avoid incoming weekend weather.

The series now begins on Thursday, April 28, 2016 with a single game at 6pmCT, followed by a doubleheader on Friday, April 29, 2016, beginning at 1pmCT at Egnew Park, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY. Friday's second game will be "if necessary" as the series is a best two-out-of-three, with all games lasting nine innings.

The opening round series was originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 29 & 30, 2016, but the forecasted weather for the Columbia area on Saturday has forced the change. The winner of the four opening round sites around the conference will advance to the four team, double-elimination tournament held at Bowling Green Ballpark beginning on May 6, 2016.
