Willard Pritchard: Hopes In and Out Burger makes it to KY soon

Willard Pritchard writes:
When I was a young boy, in 1951 our family started eating at one of the original "In and Out Burger's" in Buena Park, CA. They are GREAT. The closest one to here that I know is in Dallas, TX. I hope they make it to KY soon. - Willard Pritchard

CAC-VFD: Firework Safety Guidelines

By Donald Hare

Although the Fourth of July is a time for fun and celebration, the Columbia-Adair County Volunteer Fire Department encourages everyone to carefully follow instructions when celebrating with fireworks. Safety should be the top priority when dealing with explosives you have little to no control over.

Every year people end up in hospital emergency rooms because they handled fireworks in an unsafe way. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there is an average of 230 fireworks-related injuries near and on the 4th of July. Nearly one-third of these injuries are from sparklers.

Charlene McInteer writes:
I was just discussing the fair with my co-workers this morning. One is from Wayne Co. and the other from Pulaski Co. We were just noting how the fair has changed since we have been attending (the oldest of us is 54). I so enjoyed reading the excerpts of the diary printed in Columbia Magazine. The glimpse of the fairs back then was exciting for me to read, and I intend to share them with my co-workers. Thanks for such a great publication as Columbia Magazine. --Charlene McInteer
