Silent City Tour, 2021, one way or another

By Mike Watson

The Columbia-Adair County Silent City Tour, 2021, is fast approaching. We are acutely aware of the health issues facing our citizens and we are monitoring to ensure the well-being of all.

At this time we are planning a live presentation at 5pmCT on the evening of Monday, October 4, 2021, at the Columbia City Cemetery. The presenters are anxious to see our loyal audience as well as new faces.

We are making additional preparations--just in case--by filming these presenters prior to the actual date. This means that there will be an event even if health issues prevent us from doing a live performance. We hope to be on site that evening, but either way, the videos can and will be uploaded on our Youtube channel for everyone to enjoy.

Annual Pumpkin Festival reluctantly cancelled

From the Edmonton-Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce

The health and safety of our community is and always will be our top priority. The decision to cancel this year's Pumpkin Festival was not made lightly.

The Pumpkin Festival is a time-honored tradition that our community and those outside of our community look forward to every year. In addition, it is the number one fundraiser for the Edmonton-Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce. Canceling the event will have a significant financial impact on our non-profit organization.

Revised Kennel Ordinance would exempt Agricultural Property

A revised version of the proposed Kennel Ordinance got a first reading at Tuesday's Adair County Fiscal Court meeting. Download the new version of the proposed ordinance here: 20210915091511733 Revised Animal Ordinance (PDF).

The revised ordinance would keep the 10 animal limit for licensing requirements, although a notable change is wording to make the ordinance apply only after a complaint is received, under a "Complaint Procedures" section.

The new version also ads a specific and explicit exemption from the ordinance for agricultural property, which is defined in the ordinance as "Any tract of land, including all income-producing improvements of at least ten (10) contiguous acres in area used for the production of livestock, livestock products, poultry, poultry products, and/or the growing of tobacco and/or other crops including timber."
