2014-05-14 - 500 Public Square - Photo CM Staff Photo.
After an upbeat Fiscal Court meeting - Tuesday evening, May 13, 2014, there was a portentous full moon greeting those exiting the meeting. Lee Ann Jessee gave a report on progress at the Historic Adair County Courthouse and Ellen Zornes (That's Z-O-R-N-E-S) and Holly Grimsley presented the Trail Town, USA program which radiates from Downtown Columbia, where the centerpiece - the *Brass Rail - is the Historic Courthouse. (*Brass Rail - a symbol of pride. Term originated at Lindsey Wilson College, where an actual brass rail is maintained in military inspection readiness. Now the term is a part of the Adair County lexicon. See JIM: An Ornament to the Town for elaboration and a Brass Rail photo by Larry Smith which inspired the JIM Essay.
