Welcome to Columbia Magazine  

(Ad) Want to Buy is almost a whole daily paper in itself

One of the most surprising categories, for those of us at CM, is the Want to Buy column. It's busy and it's a must read. It's the place to look, FIRST, each day, if you are a seller. There's a new opportunity, contained in this letter. We often wonder how well a middle man could do watching the wants, fulfilling them, and making a reasonable profit every time, while doing a great service:

Pattie McClister Hi! Ed got a new listing. You do such wonderful things for Adair. Just want to say 'thanks'
I looking for some used 2x4s 4 12feet long and 2 8 feet long. They don't have to be in good shape just needed for patio form. And thanks for all you do --Pattie McClister Email:
Thanks to Pattie McClister for sending this letter, which typifies The Adair County Way - always showing appreciation - as practically every single correspondence we get from CM Classified participants contains. The only drawback is that we have to try to live up to this level of "Nice," a hard thing for many of us old curmudgeons to do. We're really working on that now, with the anticipation of the return of a couple of thousand Lindsey Wilson students in just a few days. Thanks, again, Pattie McClister, for all you do for the community. -EW
