Adair Co. has been blessed with many excellent teachers

About: Teachers who made a difference


Adair County has certainly been blessed with many excellent teachers.As I reflect on my experiences as a student in the 50's and 60's in Columbia, I am reminded of the many wonderful teachers I had. I was fortunate to have Lorraine Miller, Lula Yates Dudley, Frances Stults, Iva Willis, Al and Mary Sullivan, Mary Richards, and Ruby Roach. I also think most highly of the ACHS principal at that time, Mr. Brooks Coomer. These are just of a few of the special people who left a lasting impression on me.

Today, I am also a teacher. teach tomorrow's teachers and community leaders. I pray daily that I will leave a positive legacy with my students as have the teachers to whom I owe so much. May God bless each of them.

Bonner Leadership Program at LWC a vital part of Casey

About: Bonner Volunteer Camp Casey is future of tomorrow

By Patty Jones, Principal Col. Wm. Casey Elementary School

The Bonner Leadership Program at LWC has become such a vital part of our after school program at Col. Wm. Casey Elementary that it is hard to imagine the program without them in it.

Our students admire and look up to the outstanding college students who come and work with them at Camp Casey. These students have definitely proven themselves to be the leaders of tomorrow.

My thanks to Dana Harmon, Amy Thompson-Wells and Elise Lucky for their dedication in bringing these two outstanding efforts together to benefit our young children. I think it is such a win-win situation for the elementary and college level participants.

Bonner Volunteer: Camp Casey is future of tomorrow

About: "Camp Casey receives 2000 gift from LWC Bonner Program

Special to

Dana Harmon has just received an email stating why one of our Bonner Volunteers, Holli Clevenger thinks Camp Casey deserves this grant mentioned in the earlier article. Here's what she wrote:
"Camp Casey is the future of tomorrow. For it is there that writers are born, politicians stand up for their beliefs, scientists make discoveries, and chefs learn to cook. For me, Camp Casey is giving the gift of believing in a child and showing them that. It's been my way to help create a better tomorrow." -HOLLI CLEVENGER.
"Holli Clevenger so distinctly describes what our after school program means to both sets of students, those here and at the college, that I had to share," Camp Casey Director Harmon said.

Tomato 'record' falls: Pewee ate homegrown tomato May 1, 2009

Standards must prevail, he says. People can't just go around claiming the first tomato and get away with it. Junior Feese, an bystander who really has no dog in this fight - he just stands for justice - nonetheless united with Sinclair in his outrage. "We're both mad." Sinclair said for himself and his eyewitness.

By Ed Waggener

It's barely 10:30amCT and already there is trouble roiling in Adair County.

It took about two hours before Barbara Armitage, guru of the Adair County Garden Club, to have her title challenged.

A.L. Sinclair called this morning to let it be known that the claim by Barbara Armitage of having the first homegrown tomatoes was way premature.
