By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

The mule is considered a stubborn animal, or so we have been told. Those with experience with this true 'work-horse' of the farm can tell you that they are a special breed, in more ways than one. In mid-1895 the Courier-Journal reprinted a story carried in the Columbia Spectator, Adair County's premier newspaper of long-ago, as quoted here:

Christmas August 14, 2018 - Golden Rule's Bustop Santa?


2018-08-19 - Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY from Gaston Avenue - Photo by Linda Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
When this scene was spotted on a low visibility, rainy Tuesday, August 14, 2018, the first impression, looking from the roadway by Taco Bell toward Golden Rule Wilson Real Estate was that Chris Wilson's Christmas-in-Columbia Parade entry would be massive this year, bigger than we'd ever seen before. Two people agreed, and both would have had to swear in court that's what they had seen. However, that wasn't it at all. The "Santa" was simply the "Wendy" trademark, the white boots part of the Wendy's sign, and the obscuring tree one in the corner of, it appears, Pizza Hut! We wondered if anyone else might have witnessed the scene, to prove that we were crazy. - EW

Day Trip: visits to Metcalfe, Barren, Hart & Green Counties, KY

Things had really changed in the few days, to months since we had seen all the area, most for the better, some greatly changed and neither an improvement nor a set back, some dramatically better as in Edmonton, and, along the way, favorite old scenes were changed forever with missing stately manor houses, and landmarks burned out or gone forever.
Photos and additional updates are being added throughout he day. Click on headline for latest updates.

By Linda Waggener

Starting after the Farmers Market closed in Columbia, we headed west for a half-day exploration, or you can give this route a whole day and do even more touring than we did - maybe even make it to Mammoth Cave. It's a bonus if this tour is taken on a cloudy afternoon as it was, Saturday, August 18, 2018, so you don't have to battle sun grins on the western route.

2018-08-18 - Downtown Horse Cave, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
A discovery in Horse Cave - they've developed cell phone guided walking tours of their town which will definitely require a trip back when there's more time. We paused in front of The Bookstore and found it was closed for the day, but we learned from the sign in front of the store that read: "Horse Cave Stories Cellphone Walking Tour. The Bookstore, Stop #2. What makes this bookstore so unique is Tom Chaney, the owner. Call cell phone audio 270-854-3054 to learn about Horse Cave's resident storyteller." It also gave a QR code option to hear, in his voice, about his being a self-proclaimed historian and fabricator of tall tales. It advised that a QR Reader App may be required and gave the website horsecavestories.com. - LW

Some days are meant to be memorable. The others shouldn't count against our lifetime. I don't remember who expressed that idea first, but I have made it my own.


One of my most memorable days was in May, 1947.

My whole life seemed a preliminary to discovering Columbia, each segment of it leading me to Adair County.I discovered Columbia that bright day, and began a lifetime love affair with the best place on earth.

There are aspects of our history that are worth publicly celebrating; others are unpleasant but nonetheless need to be likewise remembered.

Such is the case with the nation's legacy of racial violence manifested locally in dozens of lynchings in southcentral Kentucky in the 19th and 20th centuries.
