Memories on sale at John Adair Intermediate School

2013-11-15 - JAIS, 202 Gen. John Adair School, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. A walk through John Adair Intermediate School before the the big surplus auction tomorrow would make anyone nostalgic - even those of us who never attended the school. Sure to appeal to any book scout is it tatter copy of Kenneth Grahame's Wind in the Willows. In the whole library, this appeard to have been the most read book of all. One wonders the numbers of children who were as enthralled with the book as the President Theodore Roosevelt was, according to the lengthy entry on the book in Wikipedia, (Wind in the Willows) and how many dreamed of having their own Toad Hall when they grew up, and, if perchance, there is a house by that name. The book, almost assuredly, will be gone in a matter of hours; the auction on Saturday is the clear around all the physical inventory, and with it will go a lot of memory evoking icons.
