Comment: No one should get panties in wad over concrete pillar

Commentary: She recommends a wire bristle brush, if anything.
Comments about Comments re photo 56351 What should be done with concrete pillars

Click on headline for complete comment

By Joyce Coomer

I don't know why so many people are getting their panties in a wad over the pillars on the square. They don't impede traffic flow - vehicular or pedestrian - and make nice resting places if you so desire.

If the remnants of yellow paint were removed the pillars wouldn't be quite as noticeable, but I don't advocate repainting them -- it detracts from their architectural shape If the paint is really bothering someone, there is a thing called a wire bristle brush that works well in removing flaking paint from concrete; they can purchase a wire bristle brush and remove the paint themselves instead of annoying the city and county governments with such a mundane complaint.

Besides, there are many things much more important to fret about - like keeping the streets paved nicely when they need to be.

Much of Campbellsville-Taylor County without power

Update 12:46pmCT: Power has been restored to CU's Campus.
Campbellsville's Ladder Truck has failure while fireman aloft at Campbellsville University's Finley Stadium. Two first responders, whose names are not released, reportedly injured. They have both been flown to UL Medical Center in Louisville, KY
Click on headline for Larry Smith cellphone photo from the scene

By Larry Smith, FM 99.9 The Big Dawg

About one hour ago, an accident involving Campbellsville Fire Department's new ladder truck, resulted in power outages on Main Street, and much of Taylor County and Green County are affected. I am told that the downed main transmission line from the KU substation also feeds some operations of Taylor County RECC, but have no confirmation on that.

We are waiting for confirmation, but early word is that a first responder has been airlifted to UL. We are awaiting a statement from officials.

The Big Dawg was temporarily off the air, but our engineers have us one the air with a temporary use of some of our sister station, WAVE's equipment. I'll keep you posted as best I can through FM 92.7 and FM 99.9 Radio, and on ColumbiaMagazine.com - Larry. More in a moment.

The concrete pillars: One vote for leaving well enough alone

Early Columbia - Back when we were boys - IV - Jamestown ST.

In this installment Ralph Waggener takes readers out Jamestown Street and out Russell Road. The series has been a huge hit with CM readers, and this one just may be the best. It's in the territory where he grew up, on Jamestown Hill, and is sprinkled with dozens of stories you may never have heard - like how Leo Wheatley got J.D. Harper to always be open for breakfast for Leo's motel guests; how Darrell Young survived the great basketball court construction disaster, how Ralph himself jumped off he top of what is now Sheila Pyles drug store, and claimed a boyhood fortune from Mike Campbell - and many more anecdotes, mostly true and certainly true to the best of his knowledge of Ralph Roy and the fact checkers at CM. Read about some of Columbia's most fascinating personalities of the distant and not-so-distant past.

Going out Jamestown Street from the Square

Back to the Square on Jamestown Street., if you where young and walking you had to see how far you could go out on the stone foundation of the Jeffries Hardware building before you had to jump off, It was a must do! Hudson "Beanpole" Willis had a radio repair shop in the lower part of Lerman's and was the voice of WAIN Radio because you never knew what he might say; he was the talk of the town for many, many years.

George Geschwind's Furniture was on the left and took up 2 buildings, and Wheat's Garage run by Luther Wheat and was the home to several mechanics over the years. Waggener Walker Newspapers bought the building later and installed a new 6 unit newspaper printing press; I help install it in and was the first to run it. I knew little about running a press but had been around them for several years when I went to get the company's many publications printed in other towns.
