Happy Max the Manx has loving new home

Maury Lewis writes:
I am so glad she found a good home for her cat and my prayer for her is that she finds a place to live where she is happy. I cannot imagine living in a place for ten years and not wanting to be here. I also pray the move is light and easy and she finds everything she wants in the next town and city she moves to. I am writing this from the heart. - Maury E Lewis, melewi

Carol Perkins: Straight talk

George Stait said his farewell to Kentucky fans at the Yum Center, Friday, March 7, 2014. George Strait. . . How wonderful would it be to have a career doing what you loved for thirty years and fans still enjoying it as much at the end as in the beginning. We should all be so blessed. - CAROL PERKINS.

By Carol Perkins

Let's talk a little Straight Talk. George Strait, that is. At the Yum Center last Friday night, to a record breaking crowd, George Strait said farewell to his Kentucky fans with Vince Gill as his "warm up act."

Four of us bought our tickets in September, but even getting them that early we ended up in section 311, row U. That is in spitting distance of the top back wall. The air was dense.

Life in the Holler: The Lord shed a new light on the situation

Picture essay: It's all about perspective
Click on headline for introduction with pictures of Life in (and from) the Holler

By Shamarie Claiborne

Yesterday my life was all about light. I have had a crazy week. One of the hardest I have had in a long time. For lots of different reasons. But in a blink of an eye yesterday it came to me. It is all about perspective and as the old folks use to say "The Lord shed a new light on the situation". Which as a child I never really understood but now as an adult, I get it.

Happy Tail: Remembering Joe Ann Grant. who loved dogs

Remembering a wonderful friend who loved dogs, life, and had a wonderful sense of adventure and humor: Joe Ann Grant, Adair County, KY (1938-2014) who is in a 'better place now, where . . . she's outside in the fields or in the barn with her mules and a dog or two . . .' - PEG SCHAEFFER
The next earlier Happy Tail - Why do I do this Posted March 9, 2014.

By Peg Schaeffer
Sugarfoot Farm Rescue

I was saddened to read of the passing of Joe Ann Grant, a resident at Summit Manor. The first time I visited Summit Manor with the dogs more than one nurse told me "be sure to visit Joe Ann, she loves dogs."

They took me to her room and in a huge recliner was a bit of a woman in jeans. Her face lit up when she saw the dogs and she scooted over in her chair, patting the space beside her. "Put one right here."

Barry Jones latest volunteer to help implement Trail Town idea

Trail Town, USA can be tremendous asset to Columbia and Adair County, writer says. Already, the number of people coming from everywhere to ride trails is staggering. And it is already providing eonomic development.
Comment about: Is Columbia the next Trail Town - USA? Posted March 15, 2014.

By Barry Jones
Personal Commentary

This can really be a huge asset to Columbia and Adair Co. Bicycles, horses, off road vehicles would all come from everywhere to Columbia/Adair Co. to ride. The numbers of riders is staggering. They would all buy groceries, hotel rooms, gas and other supplies in Columbia. Land owners that properties are crossed have a huge opportunity to put camping sites, cabins and other overnight accommodations on the trails.

(Ad) Take advantage of the heavy Sunday traffic on CM

Advertising Sizzles on Sundays with CM - especially with the better weather we're having.

There's always a lot of business, a lot of news going on in CM Classifieds. They work! They're hot right now.

There's urgency to reading them now: Spring has sprung, and those lawns can shoot up out of control in a hurry. Better have a reliable lawn service NOW, while the best services have openings and you can arrange one of lawn care's best days - a Thursday or Friday - NOW. A new lawn care in Services was added this week!

Most categories in CM Classifieds are now paid (which has actually increased their effectiveness and results). But some, such as Yard Sales are still Free for Individuals, with an low cost option for front page ads by the day.This Sunday, your ad might just be the first to be listed. Front page Classified options make Yard Sales ads dynamite! The availability is limited, so reservation of the space is important. Call 270-250-2730 today to reserve your space.

CM RENTALS.Hot any Sunday: Especially photo ads for rentals. If you want the best chance to get your property rented today or Monday morning, we've got a proven record of many SAME DAY rentals for those using photo ads.

To advertise, see instructions and rates in RATES & TERMS. And remember, if you need help, call us at 270-250-2730
