Texans trek to Corvette capital for wedding

By Don Sergent, Bowling Green Daily News

The bride wore white, the groom wore a souvenir Corvette necktie. Of course he did. Mike Green and his bride, Amy, came to Bowling Green from Tyler, Texas, on Monday for the wedding of their dreams in a sacred setting.

It was the perfect environment for these newlyweds, married in the National Corvette Museum's Skydome as museum staff members looked on and tourists browsed through the display of Corvettes smashed in the 2014 sinkhole incident.

A reminder: Alcohol sales not prohibited

State law does not prohibit alcoholic beverage sales on election day. It's a matter of local option, and neither The City of Columbia nor Adair County Fiscal Court's ordinances prohibit sales on election day.

By Shannon Sexton

I've received several calls and texts about alcohol sales on Election Day. Could you please post a quick reminder...

Per the Kentucky Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control, in 2013 the law changed to allow alcohol sales during the hours that the polls are open on primary, or regular, local option or special election day (KRS 244.290). However, the statute further stipulates that local governments may prohibit such sales. Adair Co. and City of Columbia do not prohibit sales on Election Day, per their respective ordinances.

Thank you,
Shannon Sexton, Adair County ABC Deputy Administrator

Columbia traffic stop leads to drug arrest


NOTE: An arrest is not a finding of guilt. An individual placed under arrest is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.

By Tpr. Nick Hale

On November 3, 2018, at approximately 11:05pmCT, Trooper Billy Begley was on routine patrol in the limits of Columbia, when he observed a 2006 Equinox traveling on the Columbia Bypass with a rear license plate not illuminated.

Trooper Begley initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the driver, 48 year old Jo Ann Torres, and a passenger, 29 year old Samantha Grider, both of Russell Springs, KY.

Trooper Begley had information that Torres had been selling methamphetamine. Columbia Police Officer Johnny Dial and K9 Gunner assisted, resulting in the canine making an alert on the vehicle.

Savage then overcorrected resulting in the vehicle flipping several times until coming to a stop. Savage was transported by Adair County EMS to T.J. Health Columbia for injuries sustained.
