Fire on Sandusky Street injures three

By Larry Smith, FM 92.7 the WAVE & FM 99.9 FM, the Big Dawg

Jerry Ford of Columbia was apparently working on a vehicle in a shop on Sandusky Street, Columbia, KY, when some gasoline ignited and burned Ford, a nine year old boy, and a third person whose identity has not yet been learned. All three were transported to Westlake Regional Hospital, and the child was airlifted to UL Hospital in Louisville.

The fire occurred at around 7:45pmCT, Saturday, December 28, 2013.

The fire is currently under investigation by the Columbia Police Department. We are awaiting official reports with more from the Columbia Police Department and he Columbia/Adair County Fire Department. - Larry Smith

Historical Marker at the site of B-58 Hustler bomber crash - II

2013-12-28 - Short Pike, near McKinney, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Crash of the B-58 "Hustler - the rest of the story on the back side. Mostly hidden are the two men largely responsible for the commemoration, Alan W. Reed and Chris Bennett. It's in Lincoln County - maybe the No. 1 county in the Commonwealth for Historical Markers - we saw three in McKinney itself. But this one stands out as one which drew one of the largest, if not the largest, crowds to its dedication - ever. (Paired photo: See also Historical Marker at the site of B-58 Bomber crash - I)

A Day Trip of Bucket List proportions - In just over 4 hours

To the Knobs and the Bluegrass beyond. In a 'short cut' to the McKinney Bomb site, a hastily organized trip covered KY 206, the re-emergent village of Creston, Tennessee Ridge and Ellisburg, heritage lands, and a visit to a destination cafe in a Stanford, a model of downtown revitalization. Then and back though Liberty, another city whose downtown is loved - and it shows in so many new ways.

By Alan W. Reed

The time had come. A spur of the moment phone call launched three Adair countians - author Chris Bennett, Ed Waggener and me - on a long-talked about road trip up 206 through Casey County with the destination being McKinney and Hall's Gap, headwaters of the Green River.

Ed Waggener gave protracted history lecture on what he'd been learning about once thriving Creston, which is now a virtual renaissance village and is thriving once again, as we approached the "Y" - the convergence of KY 206 and KY 90. The role of guide changed frequently after that.
