Mayor Bell finds yet another answer to high gas prices
ColumbiaMagazine.com International Desk
With a grain of salt. Photos accompany this feature.
Even when he's not working, he's working. That's all one can conclude from what Nina Nixon observed of Kentucky's No. 1 Municipal leader.
When Mayor Pat Bell went on a vacation with a LIndsey Wilson College sponsored tour group travelling to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco, he wasn't just eating exotic foods, lollygagging and gawking around. He was finding new ideas to help alleviate the gas price burden Columbians bear, Mrs. Nixon says.
Nina Nixon and her husband, Lynn (Red's identical twin brother Blackie) NIxon of Hillsboro, IN, and Sawmill Road, Adair County, got a first hand look at the Mayor's legendary work ethic on the same trip.
The alternative he found are are shown in the accompanying photos by Mrs. Nixon.
Mrs. Nixon admits the captions she wrote may be a bit fanciful, but hopes ColumbiaMagazine.com readers will enjoy the humor, as the editors of CM did.
The Mayor and Adair County CJE Ann Melton are planning a joint city-county venture to fight the higher prices currently charged in Adair County. That plan calls for the county to set up a local government fueling center near the Green River Animal Shelter and buy gas directly from a new distributor.
Editorial comment: If Condaleeza Rice and George Bush want to get this Middle East thing done before they leave office, they'd better be getting Mayor Bell on his cell phone, right now.
