New IJFASN out: The Kenny Davis appears to another collectible
Newest edition is a Keeper. Little paper with the huge impact is one of so many Adair County institutions which are simply put: The best in America for what they do
The newest It's Just for a Smile News, Volume 5, No. 15, February 15, 2011, has been on the stands for a few days, so it's fair to now alert the audience of CM, a few of whom may not already have it, that there are still a very few left on the stands when we checked yesterday. At least there were Friday afternoon, when we checked. They're free, one per person, though we suppose it's okay to take an extra or two to send to a friend.
In the future, this one. the "Kenny Davis It's Just for a Smile News," may be the Spider Man No. 1 or 1906 Honus Wagner T206 of IJFASN's collectibles. Our guess is that the Kenny Davis issue should appreciate in value over the years; maybe even approaching the future value of the famous K. Scott edition or Ralph Waggener's tribute to K.I. Riddle.
Here's the bottom line: What is so wonderful about It's Just for a Smile News, is the "Jim" standard, the Adair County High School Band measuring stick: No other community in America has a better coffee talk paper than It's Just for a Smile News. No other historian in America does a Looking Back feature nearly so well as "Jim." and no other similar community in America has a high school marching band with such impressive excellence. They are simply the best at what they do.The list could go on for the Best at What They Do, right here in Adair County: From walking horses to churches to houseboat building to retail fixtures, furniture, and precision machined manufacturing, to local historians, to story tellling, to artist and artisans, to dog traders, to truck drivers, to the brainy kids of Academic Adair, and, of course to restaurants, and yes, to some public officials.
. All the very best in America for what they do.
But this is about It's Just for a Smile News. Which leads to a question: Does anyone have the complete set of Ralph Waggener's "It's Just for a Smile News," or a bibliography listing the lead stories? If so, we'd like to know. And we'd like to receive comments on the favorite issues. It's a piece of Adair Countiana which we think, and hope, will be collectible one day. (By the way, there are a few advertising spots available, at really reasonable rates. Just don't try to take the ColumbiaMagazine.com's spot.) Ed Waggener
