Thanks to Coach Burton for all he has done

Marian Grant writes:
As a fan of all Adair County sports programs, I would like to say thanks to Coach Burton for all he and the ACHS Golf team has done in the past four years to bring positive publicity to our town and our sports program. As a former golf coach many many years ago these programs usually get overlooked and they have done a wonderful job making sure that everyone knows that Adair County has a great program. Hate to see Coach Burton leave, but I sure understand that life (kids) pulls a person in many directions. Thanks again Coach for a job well done!!! - Marian Grant

Frequent crosser remembers being terrified on Berry Bridge

Debbie Selby writes:
I have crossed this bridge many times. When I was a child, we had to cross this bridge when going to my grandparents house. My Mom and I almost had to hold our breath until we got to the other side. I was terrified because it creaked and popped as you went over. Someone told me to make a wish while crossing the bridge which would get my mind on something else. The only wish I was interested in was hoping we would get to the other side. --Debbie Selby
