A Very Proper Proposal: New statue of Adair native Evelyn West

Doug Beard suggests a way Adair Countians can remember Evelyn West - Anna Mae Coomer; the statue he suggests for the new shopping center would would be oriented toward Miss Victoria's Pampered Angus Ranch and Evelyn West's childhood home, Sparks/Breeding. - EW
Related: Birthday of Amy Mae Coomer, show biz' Evelyn West, Jan. 30

By Doug Beard

Maybe now is the time for action on the Evelyn West statue to be placed in New Columbia/Bliss!! And, we could face it in the direction of Sparksville/Breeding.

A center courtyard in the new shopping center, with floral gardens surrounding the statue, may be our best option. Who knows, this might inspire Victoria’s Secret to located their new store here.

Just a little fun but thought of her again when I saw this book featuring "famous" Adair County residents on e-bay.

Thanks and Happy Adair Country Fair Week!! - Doug

Carol Perkins: Driving Tour of Ireland Part II

Carol connects her Metcalfe County ancestors with the O'Sullivans of Cork, and notes that Cork, Metcalfe County, KY, was named for the beautiful cobblestoned city of the same name in Ireland.
Next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: Driving tour of Ireland, Part I

By Carol Perkins

Our trip to Ireland continued by leaving Dublin and heading for Cork, the home of my ancestors, the Sullivans. I didn't allow time to connect with them for Sunday dinner, but I saw O'Sullivan on many buildings and felt at home. I knew Sullivans were primarily business people, but seeing the streets of Cork lined with O'Sullivan enterprises reaffirmed what I had always been told. Diving into my family heritage didn't exactly entertain Luke, our thirteen-year-old grandson.

Tami Wilson: In-N-Out Burger superior to other fast food chains

Tami Wilson writes:
Yes, In-N-Out is far superior to most any other fast food chain. The only fast food I would eat during the time I lived in California! They are primarily West Coast, so I don't know when they will ever make it to Kentucky… They also have a great "secret menu"! - Tami Wilson

CAC-VFD: Firework Safety Guidelines

By Donald Hare

Although the Fourth of July is a time for fun and celebration, the Columbia-Adair County Volunteer Fire Department encourages everyone to carefully follow instructions when celebrating with fireworks. Safety should be the top priority when dealing with explosives you have little to no control over.

Every year people end up in hospital emergency rooms because they handled fireworks in an unsafe way. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there is an average of 230 fireworks-related injuries near and on the 4th of July. Nearly one-third of these injuries are from sparklers. Considering a home oven is set at 350 degrees to bake a cake, it's not surprising that many people are injured by sparklers that can be as hot as 2,000 degrees.

The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend one of the many public displays; however, if you plan a home fireworks display in a county that allows it, here are some safety guidelines to follow:

I was just discussing the fair with my co-workers this morning. One is from Wayne Co. and the other from Pulaski Co. We were just noting how the fair has changed since we have been attending (the oldest of us is 54). I so enjoyed reading the excerpts of the diary printed in Columbia Magazine. The glimpse of the fairs back then was exciting for me to read, and I intend to share them with my co-workers. Thanks for such a great publication as Columbia Magazine. --Charlene McInteer

Travel: In-N-Out Burger

2016-06-29 - Ventura, CA - Photo by Pen.
The first time we encountered an In-N-Out Burger with a line of cars wrapped out to the street, we assumed that it must be a grand opening or promotional event. However, nearly every restaurant we saw on our trip out west had the same line of cars and queue inside at the counter. The restaurant, known for a very simple menu and fresh ingredients, must be doing something right. (Wikipedia)
