Today, FRIDAY with CM, January 20, 2012

Welcome to Columbia/Adair Co., KY - Is Biker Friendly
Welcome to
Bike Friendly in the middle of one of the most Bike Friendly counties on the planet. And we want you to know that, whether you're on CM from Leicester, UK, or Lowgap, KY, from Katowice, Poland, or Knifley, KY. Natural cycling areas, like Tuckers Woods off Dunbar Hill, Knifley, KY, where the photo at left was taken, abound. Cycling is appreciated here and understood, and celebrated, passionately. It's the home of one of America's top collegiate cycling programs. It's not surprising to see groups of bikers in local restaurants after a health recreational ride, nor any more surprising to see a rider park his bike in front of Robert's Bank on a business run, or to see couples out shopping with a bike trailer in tow.

Shouldn't be too long before motorists see a Bike Friendly road markers at each highway entrance, letting the world know this Columbia/Adair County is Bike Friendly. We're already proclaiming it on mailboxes and business entrances with Bike Friendly Decals: The Lindsey Wilson College cycling program is headquarters for THE Bike Friendly decal which residences and businesses around the world, and especially in Columbia/Adair County, are displaying..

For more information about the bicycle-friendly decals, contact Grigsby at or (606) 524-8808, or go to:

Haiku by Robert Stone for January 20, 2012:
One who only sees
a very clear road might be
seeing the wrong one.

Hospitality Note
Make it easy to do business. Anyone who has visited an Apple Store, shopped at Amazon online, been to Disney World, ate at McDonald's or shopped at a Walmart or visited Disney World knows how easy it is to do business with them- how smoothly money is transferred and a want is gratified. Small businesses and individuals can do that to. An awful lot of extraordinary successful enterprises are already practicing the same hospitality and know it through and through. The skills are so natural to many. Others just absorb it watching the masterful skills of Lindsey Wilson College, as a hospitality center. Help in the area is available. Click to Hospitality Training available at Chamber to learn more about a program being offered Free to improve (profitable) Hospitality Skills.
