Jake, Hero of Squarecrow II - After Total Head Replacement

2016-10-06 - Historic Adair County Courthouse, 500 Public Square, Columbia, KY/Facing Fountain - Photo by Jill Smith.
Some say Jake will never know his own story unless someone tells him, how he was at work on Squarecrow II, how his head exploded following a cranial fill gone wrong, and how all was save following a Columbia Squarecrow medical first, a total head replacement. His has been the most compelling story of Squarecrow casualties, but it wasn't the last. Today, one day before Downtown Days 2016, investigative photographer Jakob Beckley, reports three Squarecrows MIA. It's hoped that they, too, will back in time for Squarecrow Judgment Day, for People's Choice voting Friday and Saturday, October 7 & 8, 2016. Oh yeah, Jake would love it if you come by and have your picture took, with him. - EW
