Our town's famous Jack Russell Stephens

Robert H. Stone, Lebanon, TN, writes about Is Jack Russell Stephens the smartest dog in Adair County
I am loving the correspondence and photographs of Jack Russell Stephens. I sent one of the photographs to my friends who have one named Ace. They got him from a shelter and assume the name is because he has a spot on his forehead that looks like the Ace of Diamonds. -Robert
Thanks, Mr. Stone. We'd love to see a photo of Ace. We've been right pleased with the worldwide fame Jack has gotten, but we're a mite miffed that he hasn't been yet invited to 1600 Pennsylvania AV, been commissioned a Kentucky Colonel, or been invited to appear on Good Morning America (We count Diane Sawyer a born again Adair Countian since she's been to Lindsey Wilson College. ) I bet you that if Rose Kennedy (another born again Adair Countian by virtue of campaigning for her son Jack, at Cornelia Hughes' restaurant on Russell Road in 1960) were alive, there would have been an invitation for Jack to come to Hyannisport by Federal Express this morning.-EW
