JIM: Judge Orders Plastering Knocked Off Courthouse!


You'll forgive the sensationalized subject line. The always-thin atmosphere up here north of Green River has caused most of my brain to seize up.

From the Adair County News, November 19, 1919

[Circuit] Judge J.C. Carter is to be congratulated. Before the close of the last term of his court he made an order, directing the Fiscal Court of Adair County to have the plastering knocked off the main auditorium of the court-house, and a metal ceiling put on. The plastering has been falling off and it has been dangerous for some time. The work must be completed before the next term of Circuit Court.
