Wid Harris passes a baton to Matt Bevin

2014-05-18 - Town Barber Shop, 402 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. While his entourage was marching on the street by the courthouse from the tour bus parked in front of the Jeffries Building, U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Biven came by sidewalk with one of his sons and ran into Wid Harris at the town barber shop. Wid is currently campaigning to bring back whittling on the square by passing out A-1 Excellent Eastern Red Cedar sticks. It struck a chord with Bevin, reminding him of his whittling days in school in his youth in New England. As an FFA member - or maybe as a 4-H Club member - he used to whittle wooden chickadees, he said. Later, at a large gathering in front of the Adair Annex, Bevin retold the chance encounter, the chickadee account, and used the cedar stick as a pointer to emphasize points in his agenda.
