Happy Tail: Tonka, the Pony that could

Tonka wasn't a first impression beauty, but after a day with her, the Schaeffers fell in love with her. Her unassuming looks betrayed a fierce competitor inside, and she and Peg's son Chip gained quite a reputation in Pole Bending events in Connecticut. Click on headline for Happy Tale with photo(s)
Next earlier Happy Tail: Dogs in Toyland Posted September 07, 2014.

By Peg Schaeffer

My son, Chip, sat on a horse for the first time when he was two weeks old. He grew up around the horses and rode in his first horse show while he was still in diapers. He progressed from Lead Line (where you ride but are led by an adult), to Walk Trot (where you ride alone but only Walk & Trot), to Gymkhana (which is a timed speed event around barrels or poles.) The first year he rode Gymkhana he had a feisty little pony we called Noel. She wasnít fast but it gave him confidence and he learned the patterns. When he turned 8 he was ready for a faster mount.

Shannon Rowe: Memories of best friend, Capt. Tony Grider

Comments re article 69888 Anthony Lynn Tony Grider Adair Co KY 19732014

By Adair County Constable Shannon Rowe, (District 2)

My heart is in such pain as I still try to grasp the concept that my only true brother growing up, Tony Grider, has passed on.

He was so much a huge part of my life as we did everything together growing up. We met each other in the second grade and were best friends ever since.

CJE Ann Melton responds to Bill Henson on road funds issue

CJE equates promises of blacktop in exchange for votes to vote buying, which is illegal, whether 'it's always been done,' or not.
In response to: Bill Henson on Road Money Issue: Way it's always been

By Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton
Personal Commentary

Thanks Bill Henson.

Finally, someone gets it and admits it. With 600 miles of county roads to maintain, I, as County Judge, welcome anyone who brings additional road funds to Adair county.

You are right, Bill, it's not the first time.

It's been done in very recent times.


Last I checked buying votes is illegal. When I ran for County Judge in 2006 I would not have dreamed of going to then Governor Fletcher to ask him to let me have control of tax dollars to campaign with. This is WRONG, IT'S UGLY, and it's completely unethical.

Procession carrying Capt. Grider Home: Past familar places

2014-09-21 - Intersection Campbellsville Street & Merchant Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. As the van carried the earthly remains of Capt. Tony Grider past the funeral home around the Square, it was meeting procession vehicles by then looped around the Square. It would pass City Hall, where the young man had served with almost boyish enthusiasm, embracing every move he saw as progressive, and where, in the immediate preceding months, he had continued to serve a passion of his, better parks or the youth of the community, as a Parks & Recreation board member. It would go past a Breeding Fire Department tanker, in the Municipal Parking Lot parked in his honor. It was passing, Merchant Street, where his "home" fire departments were less than a block away. It would circle the Square, where he had taken part in Downtown Days and an unforgettable campaign gesture, as dressed as a clown and handed out balloons at Treats on the Town, and where he regularly visited, not so much to talk politics, but to talk progress.

Ralph Waggener: Bam Carney grandstanding at its best

CJE Ann Melton's past record on roads and her courage in tackling the hospital have won writer's endorsement
In response to: Bill Henson on Road Money Issue: Way it's always been

By Ralph (Out of Order) Waggener
Personal Commentary

To Bill Henson: Really Bill, you know better. This was grandstanding at its best; we had already received the money for roads that this would have dipped into. Bam Carney is for Taylor, not Adair, and thatís OK.

We have had a lot of road work done for many years by Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton. We have had more roads built by her and have saved more money on these roads than at any time in Adairís history.
