You could buy almost anything at Hob's Store in Gradyville

It the news central in Gradyville, where people gathered to pick up their mail at the post office in the store, and shared news from Gradyvillians who had visited Columbia, Edmonton and even Glasgow. Hob extended credit until the farmers sold their tobacco crops, and usually, that credit was the first paid.
About: Comments re photo 77051 Favorite old card Hobs Store Gradyville KY

By Virginia Sparks Wonderling

Thanks for including the picture of Hob Walker's store in the magazine today.

When I was a little girl you could go there and buy anything and I mean almost anything.

That store was a gathering place for people in Gradyville to come and discuss the happenings in the area and maybe outside the area if someone had driven a distance to Columbia, Edmonton or even all the way to Glasgow.

Headlines from Adair County News, February 1943

News from World War II dominate weekly paper headlines of 75 years ago
Income tax chart accompanies this story

By JIM

In early February 1943, the duration and outcome of World War II was far from certain. Headlines on the front page of the February 3rd edition of the News reflect the tenor of the times:

*
Plans Underway for Red Cross War Fund Campaign and Roll Call

Volunteers for Service in US Air Forces

Restrictions on Sale of Gasoline

No Deferment for Married Men

Volunteers Needed by Local Rationing Board

Adair County Boy Held Prisoner by Japs

Canned Goods Rationing Will Begin on March 1
*

War-related items also took a fair amount of space on the interior pages. Among them were a PSA urging readers to purchase War Bonds; a blank 4-H Victory Membership form to be clipped, filled out, and mailed in (Adair County's membership goal was 2,400 boys and girls); and the Victory (i.e., Federal Income) Tax chart linked.
