Adair County mourns the death of a favorite son
See Related: Paul Barry Hayes, Adair County, KY (1953-2012)
Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton called this morning to relay the sad news of the passing of one of Columbia's favorite sons, one of Adair County's most respected citizens, Paul B. Hayes, long time, founding editor of the Adair Progress newspaper. He was an icon among Kentucky's journalists.
He will long be remembered for his humility, his quiet manner, and for his special talent for delivering the news we needed in a reliable, trustworthy manner.
He was through and through an Adair Countian - in the truest meaning of the term. He possessed an unmatched knowledge of Adair County, which, paired with his keen intelligence - was an advantage he used so well to chronicle our lives.
For all of us in the Adair County media world, Paul B. Hayes was like family. He was that to us.
Linda and I, Pen and Tom, and Geniece Marcum, all worked with him in his early years in the newspaper business. We extend our deepest sympathy to his dear family and to his co-workers at the Adair Progress. and know that we are joining Judge Melton, other officials, and thousands of his devoted readers in South Central Kentucky who do so, grieving the loss of this Adair County treasure. - Ed Waggener
