A Big Piece of History now in Place at Adair Co. Primary Center

The Columbia High School School Bell takes its place at Adair County Primary Center. Album. Click on headline for item with photo(s)
Click to A Big Piece of History going into Adair Co. Primary Center for a brief history on the Bell's Significance, with photo(s)

By Ed Waggener

The bell from Columbia High School is not permanently in place in its new home as the central art piece in the Adair County Primary Center foyer. Its move from the Maintenance Department's 350 Gen. John Adair Drive building, where Larry Johnson and members of the Adair County FFA carefully restored it, took place this morning between 9:30amCT, and 10:45amCT.

The accompanying photo album shows some of the highlights of the move. The bell will be rung on the opening of the school year each year, starting Wednesday, August 15, 2013, and each year thereafter, and for Christmas vacation, or to ring when the school has a very, very special occasion to celebrate, then Col. Casey Principal and now ACPC Principal Patty Jones said when the idea was first being considered.

The move brings to fruition an idea first conceived by Adair County School Board Chairman Floyd Burton, who thought the bell would make an important symbol of the great heritage of the Adair County school system.

The Whitehurst Diaries: A Day in the Life of Willis the Cat

Gradyville, more than any other place on earth, has a reputation for extremely smart pets, who do more than render TLC to the humans they own, and Willis the Cat certainly ranks in the top in this hierarcharchy. He does it in a style befitting the succession of Gradyville Gentry who perfected lives of leisure and leadership. - CM

By Sharon Whitehurst

Willis the Cat takes seriously his self-appointed duties as watch-cat and general custodian of the farm.

Mornings find him tucked up cozily on the cushioned wicker bench in the shelter of the east-facing front porch. He turns when I open the curtains, stretches and yawns, giving every indication that he has barely closed his eyes during the dark hours when nocturnal mayhem might occur.
