United they stand, getting behind the scenes things done



2013-10-11 - 400 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Billy Pickett, left, and Terry Moore are two people who get things done. Mr. Moore, CEO, of Allen Moore & Son, Electric, was checking all the outlets on the Square to make sure all is in readiness. "Electricity," he noted, "is the one essential in life. You can live without food, water or clothes, but not electricity," he said. "I'm living proof of that." He appeared to be appreciative of the intelligence shared by Mr. Pickett, who had discovered a nest of wasps in one of the electrical outlets. Pickett's eye for detail trained one of his most favorite holidays, Halloween. He's already worrying ahead about Treats on the Town, about whether enough business people, churches and organizations understand how much so many kids love the time on the Square. He shared some pretty incredible statistics. Last year, the Jaycees gave out over 1,300 cotton candies to kids, who waited in lines as many as 50 deep or more. The production strains the capacity of the Jaycees equipment and requires a lot of manpower to cook, catch, wrap, and do the off bearing. To get a headstart, over 800 cotton candy treats are prepared in the Tree House Secret Kitchen on Pickett Street ahead of time, he said. Treats on the Town is only three weeks from yesterday, on Halloween evening, Thursday, October 31, 2013.

A Columbia invention
: The Hoagie Biscuit Tenderloin Breakfast Sub, with a five inch long grilled pork tenderloin steak, thick sliced sweet white onion, garden fresh tomatoes, and lettuce. A bit of a challenge to eat, but well worth the effort. Getting perfect grilled tenderloin in an Adair County restaurant is commonplace, but the double biscuit, very unusual. Invented by Tish Paris at TaP's. - EW

Downtown Days: Matt Bevin finds memory of boyhood in Adair



2013-10-13 - 200 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Bevin was literally as happy as a kid in a candy store - this time a toy store - at Sonny's Crafts, at Downtown Days. He told Sonny Vance, who built the semi-truck behind him, that he had constructed one himself as a boy growing up in New England. Then he spotted the flatbed, and decided that was the one which most nearly matched his own. Bevin said he thought he had a photo of that boyhood project which he would send to Sonny's Crafts, who, in turn, offered to share with CM readers.

Downtown Days 2013: Joe Moore



2013-10-13 - 500 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. The face of festivals in Columbia, KY Mr. Joe Moore, a beloved Adair County Treasure, walks past the Jamestown Street entrance to the Historic Adair County Courthouse. Maybe more than anyone else, he epitomizes the festival spirit in Downtown. From time to time it is also essential to remember that the drawing of the famed Adair County Courthouse Clocktower, the de facto logo of the city, is his work. (Also of note in the Bicycle Friendly capitol of the world, and home of pedalpowered vehicles from Raleigh folders to unicycle(s), to sofas-on-wheels recumbent bicycles, the purple bike may have been the only kick bike ever in Adair County. It was used to make deliveries from the Anna Mary's in the Food Court to customers around the Square. - EW

Downtown Days: Just one thing missing



2013-10-13 - Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Where's the Farmers Market on the Square? We Hobbits enjoyed the Downtown Festival so much this year. For one thing, it had an awesomely enjoyable slow pace. For another, a priority for us, local, year round businesses seemed to be doing quite well, which should be the first concern. One thing we did miss was the Farmers Market on the Square. When it's not there on Saturday morning, it upsets our routine. As it turns out, the Festival didn't really pick up steam until around noon. With the 200 block of Greensburg blocked off anyway - and empty anyway, the big inflatable would have fit in nicely there, leaving plenty of room for those of us to walk Downtown every day to get visit the market, eat local, and put local agriculture first. Not a complaint - just looking ahead to next year. - EW

Friends in Jesus at 2013 Downtown Days



2013-10-13 - Main Stage, 400 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo By Linda Waggener, CM Photo. Friends in Jesus - Junior Feese, Gerald Coomer, Buddy Smith, Nancy Smith, and Cynthia Coomer, and Donna Feese, and sometimes Sammy Blair, and Bobby Lee appeared on the Main Stage at Downtown Days 2013 during the Adair Ministerial Association program, Saturday at around noon. Junior Feese may have been the marketing genius who came up with the name which gets so much attention because of that one proposition. On a regular basis, hosts for the group call up to say that the announcement is okay, but please change "in" to "of." But they are "Friends in Jesus." It's an attention getter. Mr. Feese said that introductions sometimes cause him to turn look around the room when they are introduced as "Friends and Jesus." The group has quickly become one of the most sought-after and booked Gospel groups in South Central Kentucky. - EW

Picture with real candidate, real editor, part-fantasy caption



2013-10-13 - 200 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo Adair County Community Voice.
Fantasy submitted caption: "Breaking news from downtown Columbia! Ed Waggener apparently succumbed to local pressure and started hanging out at the Republican Party Booth during Downtown Days. A local newspaper editor who wished to not be identified reported that Waggener told U.S. Sen. candidate Matt Bevin that he is pretty sure a "right" turn is in his near future. He then threw up his hands and yelled, 'Ted Cruz 2016.' That's my story and I'm sticking to it." ("Anonymous," ??? writes) The True Facts Fact: He was thinking, "Where IS Bill Clinton when I need him? As an unbiased reporter, he is not taking sides, he'll support whatever President we elect in 2016, whoever She is; whatever Senator Kentucky sends to the United States Senate in 2014, whoever She is; but would support a move to recruit Matt Biven to Adair County after the 2014 Fall election; he could do a lot of good around here under Adair County's Retired Millionaire Relocation Program. It was all in fun. A good time was had by all. - ED WAGGENER

Downtown Days: The incomparable Sharon Payne



2013-10-13 - Main Stage, 400 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo By Linda Waggener, CM Photo. When Sharon Payne sang during the Ministerial Association progam during Downtown Days, it gave folks chill bumps. What a magnificent voice in praise! It was a wonder any of the glass window panes remained intact. She sang during the Adair Ministerial Association's program, at which Bro. Steve Pescosolido brought the message, and Friends in Jesus & Karen Pescosolido, and Sister Sharon Payne sang. The program started a bit beyond its 11pmCT scheduled time, but it was so worth it. One of the best hours of one of the best Downtown Days ever. - - Linda Waggener

This is just part of the crowd gathered for performances on the Main Stage. It is not surprising that as permanent seats and benches are provided downtown, they are occupied and enjoyed. Not only were these performance seats in use, but benches all around the square were filled people enjoying sandwiches, having conversations, or just enjoying the passing parade. - EW

My husband Gary Crawford snapped this photo of me with members of "In the Middle of Nowhere,' Friday night, October 11, 2013 during Downtown Days. The band was fantastic. I don't think there was a dry eye on the Square when they did their tribute to Chad Compton. It was a scene I know I'll never forget. Above, from left Nick Kemp, Lee Kendrick, Tisha Paris, Russ Milby, and Jason Van Arsdale. - TISHA PARIS.

The wooden truck Matt Bevin made as a boy



2013-10-14 - Louisville, KY - Photo By Matt Bevin. Matt Bevin is right. The flatbed truck he made as a boy in New Hampshire is quite similar to the ones Sonny & Trilby Vance had for sale at the Sonny's Craft booth Bevin visited at Downtown Day, Saturday, October 12, 2013. When the candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate saw the Cane Valley-builts, he promised to send a photo of his, and did today, with a request they send it on to share with us. He wrote, " Sonny and Trilby, Here is a picture of the truck I made as a boy (33 years ago)...Not as nice as the ones you make, but the only one I ever made...Please share this photo with Ed Waggener, in case I have the wrong email address for him...Best regards, Matt Bevin."

Matt Bevin holds a relatively fancy Sonny Vance built wooden flatbed truck at Sonny's Crafts stand on the Jamestown Street Corner of the Public Square. The toy reminded Bevin of a model lumber truck he had built for himself when a young boy 33 years ago in the far northern part of New Hampshire. Bevin sent a photo for comparison.
