The View from Sandusky Mill Hill: Raider Bob at Walmart

2014-04-03 - Joe R. Barbee RD, Columbia, KY - Photo CM Staff Photo. From the Travis Coomer's & Joe Collins property at the Sandusky Mill Hill Peak of Gobblers Knob Ridge, north of Columbia, KY one can see clear out to the Raider Bob 1,000,000 gallon water storage tank by Columbia Walmart, almost into Greater Bliss. It's a faintly visible flying saucer over the tree lines, located between the real twin spires - on the Columbia UMC and Columbia-Union Presbyterian steeples to the right of the familiar Adair County Courthouse Clocktower. In the foreground are the Blankenship Storage facilities on the north leg of the Parrott Avenue loop. And in the very foreground? The fortress like structure is the concrete pad for the Wm. Sandusky Mill which gives the hill its name and which is practically impregnable. It couldn't be removed with an ordinary bulldozer and backhoe. "That's been tried already," Joe Collins says. "They made real concrete when this thing was poured." It may have to be dynamited or bombed out, but them maybe it's meant to stay. - EW
