    A Time to Praise Great Adair Countians.
    More will be added today, we hope, with the help of readers. Along with it, we hope suggestions for what would be proper and fitting honors for the living, memorials for the dead, should be be considered by the community:
    • Charles Victor Sparks: The community continues to grieve. No one speaks of him with another who knew him without a choke, without misty eyes, and always, an story about how he personally touched so many lives, in both big and little ways. Thoughts are now turning to fitting memorials and tributes.

    • Dakota Meyer:: What tributes Adair and Green Counties have to tell the country how proud we are of Congressional Medal of Honor Dakota Meyer, whose name is already a household word in America? And who was claimed for a short time, by Austin, Texas (but the Austin American has updated their story in the last day: See A street? A school? A locally made movie?

    • BG James A. Williamson:And as we do, would it be a good time for Adair County to make a permanent monument to her first Congressional of Honor winner, BG James A Williamson: Son of Adair, Medal of Honor recipient? After all, it is significant that there are two Congressional Medal of Honor winners from one small town.

    • Rev. V.P. Henry. President of Lindsey Wilson College who, "Jim" says, almost single-handedly saved the school from being closed or moved to Louisville or merged with Bethel College, Winchester, KY.

    • Col. Frank Wolford: Does yet more need to be done to pay tribute to him? An article in Sunday with CM, by Jim about another facet of Frank Lane Wolford's career - as a statesman - brings to memory another quote by Adair County's Judge H.C. Baker from an earlier contribution by Cyrus:
      Judge H.C. Baker wrote this about Colonel Frank Wolford, after Wolford's death in 1895:
      He did not aspire to be any other body than Frank Wolford, and hence he had no model after which to pattern. Frank Wolford was sui generis, a diamond in the rough, and just a little different from all other diamonds.
