Adair Natives in the News

Thanks to Russ Walker, who spotted Dr. Steve Aaron in the Washington Post, and to John R. Pendleton, who sent us notice that David Upchurch had been featured in the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Cousin Russ writes:
"How surprised was I this morning when I opened up the front page of The Washington Post to find a photograph of Adair County native Steve Aaron and an accompanying article about his efforts to help Mexico with its burro deficit.

The whole article can be read online here (free registration is required)."

In addition, Columbia's David Upchurch was featured in the Outdoors section of the Lexington Herald-Leader on October 31, 2004 because of his paricipation in big-money fishing tournaments on Lake Cumberland. That article is online here.

And Rose Thurber, who was born in Columbia, KY in 1910, was featured in a brief story in the Reedsburg Times Press of Wisconsin. That story is available online here.
