Innovation is everywhere you look these days in the Adair County School District.

Education/link: Interesting take on school funding . . .

'as state government shirks on constitutional mandate'

CM received this this link to a thought provoking story:
About effect on taxpayers as funding state funds dwindle
This may be a great issue for a Civil Discourse Conversation. Isn't this trend what small government advocates have been wanting all along? Less control from Frankfort and Washington, and consequent lower taxes from those entities, more local control and savings on taxes from them. And lower taxes overall when local might pay more locally, a lot less in State and Federal taxes? The question is: With this opportunity, will local citizens step up and meet the challenge responsibly? We'd hope most will. - CM

Holly trees are widespread in this area

From Wikipedia/Holly: 'The genus Ilex is widespread throughout the temperate and subtropical regions of the world. It includes species of trees, shrubs, and climbers, with evergreen or deciduous foliage and inconspicuous flowers.' - JOYCE M. COOMER. 270-384-4495.
Thanks, Joyce M. Coomer: Maybe this will help your neighbor Charles Marshburn understand how Hollies got here. CM will leave it to him as to weather Global Warming puts the twin cities, Fairplay/Greater Gadberry, in the "temperate or subtropical region of the world." In the meantime, could you let readers know whether the Christmas Cards You'll have at the Old Fashioned Courthouse Christmas market at the Historic Adair County Courthouse, 500 Public Square, for Christmas in Columbia, will have Holly-featured cards?

Billy Joe Fudge: Our Downtown is Curate's Egg

Commentary: The good side and the bad side of what's going on - and why the situation must be addressed in its entirety.

By Billy Joe Fudge

Our Downtown is a Curate's Egg. We definitely have some good things going on and we definitely have some bad things going on.

On the good side of things, there are existing businesses which are hanging on, along with Red Brick Studios, the Cafe on the Square and TaPs which are recent additions in varying degrees to the Downtown commercial and cultural scene. Additionally, the Courthouse is getting much needed attention from our community with financial support from Fiscal Court and others.

On the bad side of things, many vacant buildings continue to deteriorate in structural integrity and are daily becoming more of an architectural eyesore and blight on our Downtown.

However, it appears we are taking one step forward while sliding two steps backward. The situation is somewhat like the old adage. "What do you get when you put a spoonful of wine in a barrel of manure? You get a barrel of manure." And then, "what do you get if you put a spoonful of manure in a barrel of wine? You get a barrel of manure."

The long and the short of it are; we must address the problems of our Downtown in their entirety, as a whole, and not just one spoonful at a time. That means we need a strategy that identifies deficiencies, possible solutions to correct those deficiencies and then establishes a roadmap to guide us to ultimate success. - BILLY JOE FUDGE
