Joe Coffey sends this photo sent to him by his nephew, Jason Coffey, who works for Norton Healthcare in Lousville, KY, was was with a friend who took the photo. Joe Coffey said this black bear was swimming in the lake and that the far side in the picture is near the Indian Creek inlet toward the Clinton side of the lake. "There's no way to really judge," he said, "but I'd think the bear would weigh around 300 pounds." For other Blue Ribbon Bear Board Members, and others, the location is about 26 miles from Downtown Columbia, KY, where BRBB members believe, Bears probably crossed before the Long Hunters disturbe there peaceable bear way of life - back then eating most blackberries, croppie and just an occasional ancestor of ours. - EW

Dual Credit has been around awhile - but getting new emphasis

Dual credit has been offered for a long time at Adair County High School, but it's getting added emphasis with the efforts to trim the cost of higher education and with the push to get the Columbia/Adair County certified as a Work Ready Community.

In fact, at least one student entered college with 50 hours - well into the student's sophomore year - and several have had 30 hours or more, almost a full year of college work, on graduation from Adair County High School, we've found out after inquiries of the school's guidance counselor, Ann Young.

Ms. Young has suggested posting a list of the Dual Credits now being offered, and we'll post that as soon as we can on receipt. - EW

Henry Watterson and his connection to Adair County...

Famed editor, who built Courier-Journal into a journalistic powerhouse, had distinct ties to Adair County.

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

The journalistic world shall never forget the man who made the Courier-Journal the great newspaper it is, or was. "Marse" Henry Watterson was a name known in most circles one hundred, and more, years ago. He was a man to reckoned with. He was a powerhouse in political circles. He was editor of the Courier-Journal, one of the newspaper standards in the United States and in the South.

Henry Watterson had a distinct link with Adair County and Columbia. He was a great-grandson of early Columbia resident, William Morrison. Morrison was a veteran of the Revolution and purchased a house, in 1817, on the corner of North High and Greensburg Streets--later the long-time location of Durham Wholesale Grocery, and across Greensburg Street from the Nathan Gaither House. This was a purchase of convenience since Mr. Morrison's daughter, was the wife of Dr. Gaither.

One of William Morrison's daughters, Mary, born in 1784, married James Black. The Blacks had at least one child, a daughter named Talithacuni, called Talitha. Talitha Black married Henry McGee Watterson and became the parents of Henry Watterson.

Like Samuel L. Clemens, Henry Watterson seems never to have mentioned any connection with Adair County, but we know the link is there...err here. - Mike Watson
