Rick Graves asks about Theiss Chevrolet, Greensburg, KY

Comments re photo 41163 Favorite Old Photo Theiss Chevrolet ad Rick Graves writes:
You may not be the right person to ask my question about Theiss Chevrolet. I own a 69 Z-28 Chevrolet Camaro that was purchased new at this dealership. I was in hope that someone had the old records and paperwork from the dealership. I would like to find out for example who purchased the car new, copy of the original window sticker or any items in the folder that may exist. --Rick Graves
Thanks, Rick Graves. We don't have the answer, at hand, but maybe after we post this, one of our readers can offer suggestions. - EW

Nancy Cozby, Adair County, KY (1945-2014)

We have lost one of our most treasured citizens, one who made a lifetime of friends in the eight years since she adopted Adair County as her home 'attracted to the area by its beauty, the mild climate, the lakes and rivers and the possibility of living in the country, something Nancy had always wanted to do.' She will be greatly missed.

Nancy Cozby died early Sunday, May 11, 2014 at her home on Little Cake Road in Columbia, Kentucky. She fought a long and hard battle with cancer after being diagnosed more than two years ago. She leaves behind her husband of 18 years, Jerry Holt, her step daughter Natasha, her sister and brother in law: Linda and Fred Wertheimer of Washington, DC.

Wayne Baxter satisfied 1965 date Jerry Lee Lewis at Club 68

Wayne baxter writes:
The bears in the cage under the sign were a gimmick of Hyleme George in his race for mayor of Lebanon. I believe he was elected in November 1965. When this pic first appeared, someone wrote that they had a serious wreck on the way home after that show so he "knew" it was 1965. I am satisfied it was 1965. --Wayne baxter

Columbia Construction/Traffic - May 12, 2014

E Fortune Street residents should plan on remote parking for 4 days or more while Columbia / Adair Utilities District's Downtown Water Replacement Project is under construction.

ColumbiaMagazine.com Special Report

Fortune Street resident Doug Janes called E Fortune Street residents Sunday night, to say that he was passing along word from Barry Stotts of Stotts Construction, Inc., that work on E Fortune Street will make it necessary for residents to park cars elsewhere or risk being blocked by construction which starts this morning:
Today, 7am-5:30pmCT, Monday May 12, 2014, Stotts Construction Company, Inc. will be working on 100 Block of S Reed Street and on the 100-122 block of E Fortune Street in Columbia, KY.
The E Fortune Street work, because of the maze of utility lines on the short street - including fiber optics lines for Duo-County Telecom, Windstream, and gas, water, and sewer lines - will be the most complex of the Downtown Project Phase 14 work, CAUD General Manager Lenny Stone told the Thursday, May 8, 2014 meeting of the CAUD Board of Trustees.
