Dan Waggener was proud of special niche in Columbia history

The death of the father of Adair County Judge Ann Melton and Columbia businessman Danny Waggener was a reminder of a special niche Mr. Waggener occupied in Columbia Business, one he was very proud to occupy.

The business was started on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 1958. It's a record, Mr. Waggener believes. "To my knowledge," he said, "we're the oldest privately owned business under the sameownership, at the same location, in Adair County." There was a story with it at: Columbia Tire & Recap marks 50th anniversary. Clicking ReadMore accesses Dan C.
