"It ought to be maintained as a symbol, as the brass rail on the Administration Building steps is maintained as a symbol at Lindsey Wilson." And so it seems, today, after Columbia Street Superintendent Donnie Rowe trimmed the curb in white paint, and, especially, painted the Monumental White Bollard protecting the corner of the Historic Courthouse from errant semi trucks, is now. The signage is neat, with the TheatreFest banner tastefully appended. And perhaps, in keeping with Government Neutralization, the enigmatic arrows which send a motorist the wrong way around the square are fittiing in a town with enigmatic, rather 1930s Teutonic inspired flag and its slogan, "Looking Backward to Forge Ahead," (or some such), letting the world know that the Leonard Wibberly fictional monarchy, the Duchy of Fenwick with its two headed eagle - one saying Yea, the other Nay - has nothing on Adair County.
