JIM Comments on: Thirza Peevey favors bringing back the trees

Jim writes:
Once upon a time....

From the July 15, 1908 Adair County News:
"It is generally known that Columbia is one of the best shaded towns in Kentucky. Here upon our streets and in the yards of residences every variety of tree that grows in the forest can be found. The four leading streets at this season of the year present beautiful views."
(One must wonder how the writer would describe the scene today.) --Jim
