Remembering: Mr. Brooks Coomer - A Really Good Man

Brooks Coomer - February 24,1923 - April 24, 2018

'I will profoundly miss Mr. Coomer - one of the finest men I have ever met.' - GEORGE CRITZ
Click on headline for complete tribute

By George Critz

I met Mr. Coomer my first year of coaching at ACHS where he was principal at the time. He was a dedicated educator for 35 years, and as principal, he once told me he knew every students' name at the school. AMAZING! At that time there would have been over 1,000 students. As a former principal myself, this to me seems impossible.
He never married so his immediate family was always the people of Adair Co. Service to these people was his top priority. He would take athletes to and from practice and games for many years, which helped coaches (like me) but, much more importantly, he was helping Adair Counties youth. He loved and followed sports and was doing his part to help his local sports teams. He continued this long after he retired.

On Sundays and any other day the church doors were open he would drive people to and from church. He also would take people to and from doctor appointments. In other words, many weeks he would taxi people seven days a week. He did this as long as he physically could.

He always worked for what he thought was right and was very loyal to whatever cause he believed in.

I will profoundly miss Mr. Coomer - one of the finest men I have ever met.

Sincerely,

/s/ George A. Critz

Mike Watson: Story in old Columbia Spectator raises question

One item reprinted in the Stanford, KY, Interior Journal in 1873 piques interest in Adair County Historian Mike Watson's mind. Maybe someone can help him with the name of Campbell man of the "Neetsville" community whose arm was amputated after he was injured in an explosion of a gun during Christmas.
Click on headline for entire story, more details of the incident

By Mike Watson

A cool, rainy morning is keeping me inside today. So I'm searching for an answer to a question from the past. First, the Columbia Spectator, a newspaper founded here in 1869, continued with some short interruptions, as a weekly paper through 1910.

Only about 125 issues of that important source have survived, but occasionally one or two appear and are made available. Other newspapers, some even outside Kentucky, with access to the Spectator, would insert in their own columns news from other towns, including Columbia and Adair County. My question is at the end of the section below:

Ken Hill completes Living History series at ACES


2018-04-25 - Adair County Elementary School (ACES), 870 Indian Drive, Columbia, KY - Photo by Innocent Bystander.
Ken Hill, noted re-enactor, finished the last of his 4th grade "living history classes" Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at Adair County Elementary School. "A great bunch of kids," he writes, and adds this information about the event."The flag, along with all items on the two tables are exact replicas of items used around the time of the American Revolution. I bring an assortment of weapons, writing instruments, books, lanterns, hides, furs, cooking utensils and childrenís toys, all to demonstrate how our ancestors lived. The "Betsy" flag I'm holding was rarely flown in this area, but since the children have learned about it in school, it helps to focus them on the time period when Kentucky was still a county in Virginia. The kids really seem to enjoy it, and once they hear the stories about the items, many of them can tell the same stories to the group if they happen to see me again. I appreciate the teachers' invitations to come into the schools, and the support of Supt. Stephens in allowing me to bring my gear to help tell the stories. Reading about history is good, seeing what you have read about often makes it much clearer."

Sandra Jones: Log Church picture evokes beautiful memories

Sandra Jones writes:
Dear Ed & Linda

I remember walking to that log church with my brother & sisters many a summer day for Bible School. Oh, the memories that picture brings back!!!

I always loved the stories Miss Imogene Snider told on her felt board. She made them so exciting! Those really were the good old days. And, sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday.

Sincerely,
- Sandra Jones

Huge strainer on bridge over Crocus Creek on Melson Ridge Road

Wendy Burt writes:
I agree with Mitzi Bault about the danger of bridge "strainers" on Adair County waterways. Another case in point is the pileup of entire trees, limbs, and branches where Melson Ridge Road crosses Crocus Creek in southern Adair County. The pileup is so huge that branches are visible above the bridge deck. As a kayaker, the sight frightens me.

And my engineer father, who designed bridges, immediately would cite the significant risk to the structural integrity of the bridge.

Adair County has many bridges that cross our beautiful waterways. Our state and county highway departments have an important responsibility to maintain them. (See accompanying photo ) - Wendy Burt

Log jam - strainer on Russell Creek pushing against bridge-Whose responsibility?

From a Kayaker: "There is a big log jam at the 206 bridge over Russell Creek in Columbia, KY. Itís pushing on the bridge... City, County or State needs to get it out." - Mitzi Bault

As a City Council Member, all kinds of concerns come up needing to be addressed for the good of all and research happens to find answers. Recently the focus has been on sidewalks and roadsides for our citizens who travel on foot and on bicycles, but this is just one more means of travel so it deserves attention. Which area of our government has the responsibility, personnel and equipment to remove a huge log jam from beneath a major bridge? I'll be asking questions and inviting discussion. For the safety of the highly traveled Liberty Road bridge, and for our travelers on the water, I agree this needs to be a priority. - Linda Waggener

From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky

BOWLING GREEN, KY (Mon 23 Apr 2018) - A Franklin, Kentucky, physician was convicted today on 15 counts of illegal distribution of controlled substances by way of prescribing opiate pain medications outside of the course of professional medical practice and without a legitimate medial purpose, announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman.

"Kentucky families rely on our doctors to 'do no harm,' however, in this case, a Western Kentucky doctor was no more than a drug dealer in a white coat," stated United States Attorney Russell Coleman. "As much as we respect the medical profession, this is a warning to physicians who purposefully overprescribe pain pills without a legitimate medical purpose - you will lose your medical license and ultimately serve time in federal prison."
