JIM: Remembering Reed Combest & Combest Motor Co.

The sad word of the passing of Reed Combest and mention of the auto dealership he ran on Jamestown Hill brings back so many memories to those of us who are now in their withering, out-of-warranty years who have vivid memories of Luther Wheet, the Gulf Station, Judge Jerry Vaughan's father, Ebby Lawrence and the many businesses he ran; Feese Motors, and Russell Arnold and his wife, Bernice, and the too few summers she had maybe the very best meal ever sold in Columbia: A & W Root Beer served in frosty mugs accompanied by split-and-fried hot dogs. Halcyon days, those. Raises issues of just what all was still there, on that corner. then; as well as the nagging age old how do you tell a Vaughn from a Vaughan? and remember which were geniuses mechanically & academically & which were geniuses in the insurance, hunting/fishing dress shop enterprises? - EW
About: Reed Combest, 88, Pembroke, FL/formerly of Columbia, KY (1929-2018)

By JIM

The Combest Motor Co. Dodge - Plymouth dealership, successor to Wheet Motor Co. and located "Highway 55 at Tutt St.," opened on November 17, 1954. The owners were E.A. (Ebby) Lawrence, Mark Vaughan, and Reed Combest. By March 1955 (and likely before), the company had picked up the Allis-Chalmers franchise as well.

Mike Watson: Natural pointer in direction of Republican School

Leading authority on such matters weighs. Sign is in the land of his raising

Mike Watson writes:
The location was quite obvious to me at first glance, but that is where I grew up, about one mile back up highway 704, mid-point on Earls' Ridge, south of Walnut Grove and Concord Methodist.

The natural pointer, much like the new signpost on the Courthouse lawn, points in several directions, some of which have been suggested. I believe it points also to Republican School, just beyond Inroad, and not quite to the 'Ross House' and ancient cemetery of the same name. - MW
