Help Adair Co High School Win $100,000

This is do-able, folks! Adair County was No. 191 this morning and we'll know in the morning how far we've moved up. PLEASE DO AT LEAST ONE VOTE overnight. You can vote 1 time per day! - SHAMARIE.

By Shamarie Claiborne, Media Publicity Coordinator
Adair County School District, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY

For those that may still not be aware the Adair County High School is participating in a contest being conducted by State Farm which is called "Celebrate My Drive". All you have to do is go and make a commitment to drive safely and it teaches you two driving skills daily. Currently we are number 191 in the small school category and need to be in the top 50. We can do this if everyone will participate. You can "commit" once daily. We will keep everyone posted as we move up the ladder.

You will go to this link and put your email, birth date, and tell them if you are a parent, teacher, etc.. hit next and then it will take you to the next page where you will enter the school name - Adair County High School, City - Columbia, and State - Kentucky. You will then hit next and it will pull up Adair County High School -- you select it and hit next ... then it asks you two fun driving question that are educational. After you do it once - the next time it might take you 2 minutes, and you can enter once a day using each of your email addresses if you have more than one. The rewards are big. They are giving away 90 - $25,000 awards and 10 - $100,000 awards. Let's see if we can pull this off again like we did for the baseball team!

Joyce Coomer on Celia Downey article: Concise and to the point

But another important point, Joyce Coomer writes - We have the jobs. Let's support local businesses. - JOYCE COOMER
Comments about: CELIA DOWNEY: Bringing jobs issue down to earth

Joyce Coomer writes:
Concise and to the point . . .

Add in that many people take their business outside the county and/or bring in outside businesses to do what could be done by Adair County citizens and it makes the business climate even tougher for small businesses.

By my rough calculations, there are somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 jobs in the county, if not more than my high estimate of 7,000 . . . We have the jobs. Let's support local businesses.

Joyce M. Coomer
Thanks, Joyce! You and Celia have nailed it! You've hit the nail squarely on the head. Just wish that nail were firmly seated with all to realize - the answers are all right here. Right here at home. - CM
