40 Years Ago Today, Big Doings - Inauguration Day - in Columbia

When Columbia, Adair County, KY was the focus of attention - some of it not so respectful as they ought to have been. Jealous, one would guess. The Columbia/Adair County Inauguration Day, happened of a Tuesday, many survivors recall, Tuesday, January 10, 1978. More than a few have memories of the day. Some think there hasn't been anything like it since.

By JIM

The Adair County News dated 40 years ago today - January 10, 1978 - devoted most of the front page to an article by Mike Murrell and related photos by Jerry Compton of the wildly successful inauguration celebration held in Columbia over the weekend. The paper estimated some 6,500 to 7,000 people came to view the record-breaking parade, greatly lengthened by the "tractor-cade" of farm vehicles within the parade proper; to partake of the contents of "The World's Largest Chili Bowl," cooked up by "Master Chef Carl Harris and several assistants" over the period of a full week; and, of course, to meet the newly inaugurated city and county officials, perhaps most notably Mayor Coy Downey and County Judge James Brock. Wayne Perkey of WHAS 840 radio fame led the parade as grand marshal, and Rev. Doug Moseley acted as master of ceremony for the day's activities.
