By Shamarie Claiborne

COLUMBIA, KY (Friday, October 11, 2013) - The ADAIR Band will be leaving today around 2:30pmCT to head to North Carolina for the Western Carolina University Tournament of Champions. They will be competing in a field of 25 bands from KY, TN, GA, NC and SC. North Carolina has a different calculation for band classes so ADAIR will be a AA band this weekend. ADAIR will be performing at 2:30pmET, local North Carolina time.

The top 10 scoring bands from the entire field will be invited back to compete in finals for the Grand Championship. I will try to keep everyone posted as much as I can! Say a prayer for safe travel please and remember the kido's tomorrow. See for the full schedule. - Shamarie Claiborne

Simple off-air Tv solution, with KET, maybe WBKO

Suggests that those who go this way send some of savings to support great programming, like NOVA

Peggy Fudge writes:
With a small investment in a tabletop antenna with electrical boost, you could pick up KET, KET2, and KETKY, the very best programming available-and depending upon where you live- you might also pick up WBKO. If you have an older tv, a converter box will be necessary. So, for a small, one-time investment, and no monthly fee, you can get the best stuff on television. But, please, if you can, help support KET to the extent you are able. It's a great feeling to know you are helping to bring programs like NOVA to everyone. I am somewhat electronically challenged, but this was simple. --Peggy Fudge

Sheriff Moss and Deputy Bray went to the area and located said vehicle. The vehicle matched the description of a vehicle that was stolen from the Old Home Place in Columbia on September 28, 2013. The vehicle was a Green Mercury Villager belonging to Alvin Stotts. The Columbia City Police Department was investigating the theft. Officers Dial and Cole from the Columbia Police Department responded to the scene at Mt. Carmel and continued their investigation. BJ Bray, Deputy, Adair County Sheriffs Department

Closing scene suggested for any Great Robbery re-enactment

CM concurs with this stand

Commentary on Who We Are, as a People

I know this is a big weekend in Columbia. Did I ever tell you that when the Great Robbery was still being re-enacted, a Certain Unnamed Party and I came this close (thumb and forefinger held microns apart) to adding our own ending to the scene?

Our plan was thus: as soon as the murdering thieves made their getaway, a runner would speed like lightning out Burkesville street, pound on door, and breathlessly give the terrible news to "Mrs. Martin," said news to be broadcast over speakers set up (quite surreptitiously of course) on the Square. Those same speakers would carry then have carried Mrs. Martin's (pre-recorded and perhaps overly, even uncmfortably, loud) wailing keen of shock and grief. Shortly thereafter, a funeral carriage of the era would have approached and made a make a half circle around the Square, exiting onto the Campbellsville Pike on the long sad journey to take Mr. Martin's remains home to the cadence of a tolling bell.

I tell you this in strictest confidence, knowing you won't rat out Anonymous Kinfolk I & II. - AK I & II. Addresses, known whereabouts, and M.O. on file at CM. - EW

Wishes WGRB tower could broadcast digital signals

Its too bad they cannot use it again to transmit television signals. With the new "digital" waves, I do not receive television. I refuse to pay for satellite as other members of the family sit enough. However, once in awhile it would be nice to catch a program or two. :) - Heather Evans
