Harrison Moss: The value of ACCEPTANCE

Harrison Moss writes:
ACCEPTANCE is the answer to all all MY problems today. When I am disturbed, It is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation - some fact of my life unacceptable to me and I can find no serenity until I accept that person ,place thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. nothing , absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake , until I can accept life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes. = Author unknown
Mr Waggener, This hangs on my wall. I read it often. Thought I'd share it with your readers. Thanks. - Harrison Moss

Letter: More on Old Neatsville

Paul Patton writes:
Ed, I send to you a comment on Old Neatsville which had a mistake in it. This morning, while reflecting on various things, I suddenly became aware of my error. I stated that Buck Watson was a son-in-law of E. L. "Casey" Hardin who operated a grocery store in Neatsville prior to the Buck Watson store.

Don't know how I made such a mistake, but the fact is Buck Watson's wife was a niece of Mrs. E. L. Hardin. Buck's wife was a Goode, a daughter of Mrs. Hardin's brother. --Paul Patton

Statewide salt supplies reaching critical levels

Nationwide salt shortage, perpetual winter storms diminish supply. . . This season, the cabinet has used more than 410,000 tons of salt, compared with 160,000 tons at this point in 2013. Snow and ice operations have cost the cabinet more than $53 million this year.

From Commonweath (State) news service

FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 5, 2014) - Despite a lull in the winter storms that have pounded the Commonwealth, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has advised its 12 highway districts to conserve salt supplies and focus on other conservation efforts in combating further snow and ice this season.

"Our snow plow operators are carrying a heavier burden in clearing our highways," said KYTC Secretary Mike Hancock. "It's a real challenge, but our crews are working hard to ensure our roads are safe and passable."

Kathryn Miller: Will continue to speak out for change

By Kathryn Miller
Personal commentary

People can go on defending the way things are done around here and acting like everything is ok all they want but I will not be silenced about it either. I know for a fact that there are many people here who feel the same way we do about the way things are handled around here but they are afraid to speak up because they don\'t want to rock the boat. Well I\'m not afraid.

Sad thing is town could have more to offer if change allowed

The sad fact is this town could have more to offer if change was allowed to happen but unfortunately only those with certain last names have a voice here. This town will die out because there is NO progress here. We are moving on as soon as we can. Our daughter - just like the other kids here do too - deserves a chance at a real future and she can't really have that here. Once again, no progress equals no growth and no jobs other than factories & fast food. --Kathryn Miller

Wonders if there are photo(s) of Old Neatsville

Comments re article 65666 Neatsville Once bustling town was incorporated for a time story by Susie Grant.

Jackson Brower writes:
I wonder if there are any old photos of Neatsville, before the flood. It has a very interesting history. Ms. Grant did a good job with the research. I wonder, is she related to the Grants that owned the store? When I lived in Pellyton, Neatsville consisted of that store, whose owners were very friendly, and a Christian church across Route 206. - Jackson Brower
Maybe someone out there will share some - In the meantime, I'm awaiting the announcement of Bro. Paul Patton about the expedition he is prepared to lead find the very spot where Buck Watson's store stood. I plan to be a good follower. - EW

Game changing event: Brown & Brown of KY expansion here

Jobs averaging almost $100,000 per year: And the company presence in Columbia has a positive growth curve; 30 jobs are foreseeable. The opening of the new corporate headquarters building for Brown & Brown of Kentucky in Columbia, represents not only one of the biggest economic development events in recent times, but it also puts to rest the mythical and most classic excuse for failure to bring in the highest level of good jobs: That we don't have the quality workforce good employers want. We do. It happened because one Adair Countian wanted it to happen, believed it could happen and made it happen, knowing that there really are acres of diamonds in our backyard, that the only thing which can stop Columbia from growing is failure to believe in ourselves. As a 'shy' associate of his - would put it, "All Columbia & Adair County needs to do is quit kicking itself (in the rear) and start patting itself on the back, look at the potential and look at what is actually happening here. There's genuine growth and there is opportunity. Right here. Right in Adair County. Right in our own backyard." - EW

Brown & Brown of Kentucky, headquartered in Columbia, KY, is moving to a new 4,000 sq. ft. headquarters off the Adair County Veterans Memorial Bypass, and there's one big reason, Michael Neal, Profit Center Leader/EVP Brown & Brown of KY says: "It's the work ethic of the employees the company has been able to hire here. They give 100%, and it shows in their productivity." Revenue from the Columbia office has grown six fold over the five years the company has been here. He's careful to add that the growth has come in part because of aggressive acquisitions, but increased sales production by existing employees is significant, too.

The work ethic of local people is the big reason for the local expansion. Otherwise Neal says, the company wouldn't be here. But that's not the only reason for the expansion. "This is home," Mike Neal says, and that's why he's used his considerable influence with Brown & Brown to expand here.

I am a newbie resident to Adair County but not "new" to Adair County and I have been an avid reader of the ColumbiaMagazine for eight years running. However, I have lived in many places in several states, both in rural and city settings with friends all over the United States, actually the world. Adair County/Columbia has a lot to offer and the energy from the young students at Lindsey Wilson College is definitely an asset, in my opinion.

A big shout out for the road crews at the state barns in Campbellsville and Columbia. It was a beautiful drive down KY 55 to Columbia and on to Radio Hill to the WAVE Studio on KY 80.

Side roads are being cleared as fast as county and city crews can get to them, but we're hoping things get back to "normal" soon - maybe the kiddoes will be back in classrooms soon. We'll keep you posted. - LARRY.

Ken Hill: My two cents worth on snow removal

On commute from Louisville, he had smooth sailing until he hit KY 210 his trip took a turn for the worse, with little blacktop visible ". . . until I reached the Adair/Taylor line. From there on to Columbia was clear, and I saw two State trucks scraping and spreading salt. . . Stopping for a gallon of milk in Columbia, I talked with two of our State Highway employees, and personally thanked them for making the last leg of my journey more bearable. Having worked closely with the road crews of several counties throughout my career as a Kentucky State Trooper, I have always thought the Adair County Crew did an admirable job, and often far exceeded surrounding counties." he writes, and reminds readers that he may be in the miniority, but he did not grow up expecting the government to take care of every thing.

Just my two cents worth.

Much has been said in the past couple of days about the snow removal, or lack thereof, and I felt compelled to put in my "two cents" worth.

I now work in Louisville, and had a feeling this was going to be a bad round of weather, and with that thought, I left for Monday morning work on Sunday afternoon. The ice fell, the sleet pelted, and the snow blanketed everything. Monday morning was much less stressful without a long drive.

Proud to be Adair Countian: By choice - perpetually

Jon Halsey writes:
Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Texas, Alabama, Tennessee. These are all States that I have lived in. In several cases more than one town in these States. When I was transferred to Kentucky, I knew that I would be proud to live here. After meeting the people in the South Central Kentucky area, I knew that I could not, would not leave. I retired nine years ago and we have two plots in the New Columbia Cemetary. I think that pretty well sums up how the wife and I feel about this place after fourteen years of seeing local life played out in all of its facets.
