In the News exactly fivescore years ago today, March 3rd, 1915

  • Registered Distillery at Sand Lick destroyed by dynamite
  • Old Maids Convention" at Columbia Graded and High School a great success
  • The Y.M.C.A. of Lindsey Wilson followed with "The Tramps Convention"
  • Sports took up an entire column, with memories of E.A. Diddle and Doodle Sullivan
  • Mrs. Marcum gave tea to raise funds for Columbia Library
  • And an interesting footnote and a JIM teaser on Lafe Akin and Adair County's best-known music teacher, Rev. Isaac Meredith "Pilgrim" Grimsley

Click on headline for complete "100 years ago."


The front page of the Adair County News one hundred years ago today -March 3, 1915 - carried a savory potpourri of information.

One item of considerable interest to many was the recent destruction by dynamite of a registered distillery at Sand Lick, near where Cumberland, Adair, and Russell corner up. (The News, ever ready to take up the mantle of prohibition, quickly pointed out the distillery was in Cumberland County.) On Monday night of the previous week, co-owner John Oldham, who lived half a mile from the operation, heard an explosion. "Upon hearing the report, he got up, looked out, to see the buildings in flames." He and the other owner, Ed Oldham, immediately contracted for blood hounds to be brought to the scene of the crime and in short order the sharp-nosed canines had earned their kibble. The next edition of the News reported that on Friday, William Miller of the Bryan community, Russell County, had been tracked "to his door," arrested and charged with "blowing up and burning the [distillery] buildings," and carried to Burkesville, "where he bonded until next Saturday."

It was a Red Letter day in City Hall last night, when Mary Ann Loy, at podium, right, gave a detailed account of simple solutions the City could do to improve pedestrian safety all around Columbia, and got an enthusiastic reception from Mayor Curtis Hardwick, Mayor Pro Tem Ron Rogers, and other members of the council. Above, clockwise, are (Rogers), Councillors Charles Grimsley and Mark D. Harris (both partially hidden); City Clerk Rhonda Loy; Mayor Hardwick, City Attorney Marshall Loy; Councillors Craig Dean, Linda Waggener and Craig Lasley. Councillor Waggener urged the Council to take immediate action by following Mary Ann Loy's suggestion, to split up areas of the community and walk the area and come back with suggestions to improve conditions for pedestrians, those who walk for health, those who must use streets for mobility scooters. Most of the council claimed sections early. Former Mayor Mark D. Harris endorsed the plan, and commented that the new Payroll Tax should help to finance needed painting, striping, and marking projects. - ED WAGGENER
