Portentous red geraniums

2012-11-07 - Downtown Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Although Adair County, KY, was much more generous to the President-elect in 2012 than in 1860, when then President-elect Abraham Lincoln received one vote, the red geraniums in the Fountain Plaza planters and at the courthouse seemed to portend a Republican landside in Adair County, KY, where Mitt Romney received 5,841 votes, 76.86% of the vote, to President and President-elect Barack H. Obama's 1,660 votes. The photo also is a reminder of one of top City Council vote-getter's pet project's getting the confusing road direction signs for KY 80 and KY 55 changed. Charles Grimsley a Downtown Columbia proponent, has asked that the signs, which too frequently mislead traffic to the Square to head the wrong way, be changed. - Ed Waggener
