1933 Models: Bro. Lewis Haynes & Ivan Greer's Chevrolet


2017-08-16 - McDonalds of Columbia, Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com(c).
There was a special celebration this morning at McDonald's of Columbia, when Bro. Lewis Haynes, far left, received special recognition with a visit by Ivan Greer, next to Bro. Haynes, with his restored 1933 four door Chevrolet Sedan. Others, above, from left after Greer, Ralph Roy Waggener, Buddy Green, and Ralph Shearer. All are members of one of the many elite McDonald's coffee clubs. Bro. Haynes has retired after a long pastorate at Plum Point Baptist Church. He will be 85 on February 14, 2018. The car has been meticulously refinished, inside and out. Greer obtained it about two years ago in Ohio. It's a six cylinder model, with a three-speed-on-the-floor manual transmission, and with the six - it's remarkably quiet and peppy. The car will make an appearance at the next Re-Visit Knifley, Greer said. And, unlike many collectors who feign offense if someone asks to buy a car such as this, Greer says simply that $25,000 will buy it. And he has others. - EW

Celia Downey: Luncheon with friend; lessons learned

By Celia Downey

Have you eaten lunch with your best friend? Always a pleasure, discussing the menu and wishing you could eat it all. At home on my day off there was no menu, no fancy little glass plates, and no iced tumblers on a covered table.

However, there was some cheese and bread plus mayo and a few stale Lays chips. Good enough, cheese sandwich and chips, plus a Diet Coke in the can. Sitting down on the back porch step, I took the first bite of the sandwich. Such a lovely day with the sun streaming down and the birds peeping around. Anticipating the lunch I began to take a bite.

Joyce Coomer: Glass recycling

Joyce Coomer writes:
Once again . . .

Several years ago, the Lexington Herald-Leader had an article about a grass crusher/tumbler that the state owned. It could be taken to different counties, as they requested or needed it. Tumbled glass could be used as a landscaping item and the county could sell the tumbled glass by the pound.

I know first-hand that broken glass has an interesting effect in a flower bed. Ten or fifteen years ago, the back glass in the camper top had somehow gotten broken (and I didn't realize it), and when I opened the back glass to get something out of the bed of the truck, the pieces fell out into my March flower bed. I didn't bother picking it up as it was safety glass, but noticed that it glinted nicely in sunshine and even in moonlight.

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed there were still several pieces of the glass visible around the March flowers, and it was a nice contrast to the leaves from last fall.

Perhaps the judge's office could question someone in Frankfort about this machine. - Joyce M. Coomer

Adair Solid Waste looking to Pulaski Co. for glass recycling

Related: Letter to CM from Guy Babin : Where can you recycle glass in Adair County?

Guy Babin forwards the following rapid response to his email, from AC Deputy CJE Andrea Waggener, dated Wednesday, August 16, 2017

"Mr. Babin, Unfortunately, glass recycling is an expensive process and the vendors we used in the past have stopped accepting that material. We have been unable to find a different vendor capable of taking and processing glass. Additionally we have a storage issue at the Recycling Center. There isn't much space there to collect large quantities of heavy glass while housing full loads of cardboard, newsprint, and shredded paper.

Murakami to add 20 jobs in Campbellsville

Automotive mirror systems supplier plans $2.7 million investment in Taylor County

By Woody Maglinger/Jack Mazurak

Murakami Manufacturing U.S.A. Inc., which makes automotive vision systems, will build a more than $2.7 million, 20 employee warehouse on its Taylor County campus.

Murakami will expand its current facility at 575 Water Tower Bypass in Campbellsville by 50,000 square feet to consolidate storage, increase manufacturing capacity and streamline product flow. In addition, the expected 20 hires will fulfill a total 50 new full-time jobs the company announced in a separate expansion project in 2014. The new construction will start in September with projected completion by March 2018.

Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said the project is evidence of the company's dedication to the local workforce.

"We are so excited to have Murakami choose to expand and invest in Campbellsville again," Mayor Young said. "The new warehouse and distribution center expansion and additional jobs proves their commitment to our community. This is a welcomed addition to our local economy."

Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers said Murakami is one of the community's most trusted employers.

"I welcome Murakami's expansion project and look forward to its positive impacts for our community," Judge Rogers said. "We are proud Murakami continues to serve North America from their Taylor County facility. Murakami has always been one of our top corporate citizens."

Adair, Russell, Casey now Zone 3 for bear hunting

Frankfort, KY - New information about bear hunting this year in Kentucky is now available through the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources' website at fw.ky.gov.

News from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture

FRANKFORT (Mon 14 Aug 2017) - Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles brought a little hope to Eastern Kentucky's less fortunate on Monday when he helped deliver freezers donated by Farm Credit Mid-America and CoBank to food pantries in five counties.

"Thanks to the generosity of these agricultural lenders, food pantries throughout the Commonwealth will be able to accept donations of meats and other frozen foods," Commissioner Quarles said. "This will enable the food pantries to help their clients get the proteins they need for a healthy, balanced diet. This is a giant step in the mission of the Kentucky Hunger Initiative to seek solutions to chronic food insecurity in Kentucky."
