Charles Marshburn: Pro & Con

Marshburn writes: Some of those buildings downtown look like they haven't been painted since Jesse James robbed the paint store (or was it the bank?)! Then again, I've heard that the worst thing you can do to the value of an antique is to refinish it. - Charles Marshburn

Sue Stivers Commentary: Thoughts are the Seeds Of Reality

What we think about our community is what we will become. Sue Stivers sites just a few of the positive attributes and plans for Columbia/Adair County: More people moving here. Increased interest in agriculture brought by farmers markets. Expanded vision of many clubs and organizations. Churches to serve those of all faiths. Lindsey Wilson College and its students. New educational opportunities and pathways. The Trail Town Initiative. This, she says, is just a small part of what is going on here. She invites readers make their own list of what's right and Think Positive about Columbia-Adair County.

If we collectively believe we have the world by the tail, we do. If you believe everything you read or hear on the street that is negative about Columbia and Adair County, we're doomed.
