Timeline for fugitive Shawn Christy: McAdoo, PA to Adair Co., KY - 2012-2018


Photo below posted 2018-08-10 courtesy Mike Keltner, Adair County Emergency Management Director.
The fugitive's trail to Adair County: Shawn Christy now the subject of an intensive manhunt near the Adair/Green County line. The timeline started in 2011 in McAdoo, PA when Christy and his father made national news as a result of threats against former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. It has led to Adair County, KY and has brought attention Adair County could well do without. This Friday, August 10, 2018, it is about the only thing being talked about in Columbia, Edmonton, Greensburg, and Campbellsville, where multiple sightings are being reported hourly, and some have even come to collect the reward money.

Taft Neal: I'm not running to displace any Council Member

Taft Neal writes
(Receive Thursday, August 9, 2018) - I have had many phone calls today about my intention to run for City Council and I want to clarify that I am not there to displace any member of the City Council.

Everyone of them are extremely firm people. I just feel that I could provide a fresh breath of air into the community. Columbia is poised to take the lead in South Central Kentucky and I would love and be honored to partake in the opportunity with this community. The city is poised to become the Leviathan of the area, ready to pass up other communities.

We have the ability and the means to do it now. - Taft Neal, candidate for Columbia City Council.
