Mitzi: It has always helped to share my journey with the big C

Mitzi Bault is a beacon of light to many who share her plight, living with and through Cancer. She is a survivor two times over. She is now challenged for the third round and she says "it's bad but I've been here before and I'm not giving up." She is in a study with two specialists who brought her through it before. She began a new trial medicine this week and shares her journey.
"I will breathe, I will think of solutions. I will not let my worry control me. I will not let my stress level break me. I will simply breathe. And it will be okay, because I don't quit."
- Mitzi's inspirational quote by Shayne McClendon matches her own statement, I don't quit.

By Mitzi Bault

Everyone looks at, and does things, differently. It has helped me through the years to tell my story. Just because you hear the big C word does not mean your life is over.

My journey started in the 90s with Skin Cancer, on to Breast Cancer, then Ovarian Cancer.

The Christmas in Columbia Story 2018

By Linda Waggener

It was just like Landon Edwards said at the Rotary Club breakfast, "Cancel the parade and the weather will clear up - don't cancel the parade and the predicted storms will happen."

Rain continued coming down hard outside as the aroma of biscuits and sausage filled the warm Columbia Baptist Church fellowship hall and kitchen.

Parade entrants, set to be the evening entertainment, waited all around the county for notification - should they continue preparations or change their plans?

The days before the war, when I was a happy child

By Jim

On the second day of January 1927, Mrs. Julia Agnes Allen Powell of Rolla, Missouri, penned a note to accompany her two dollar subscription renewal to the Adair County News. In the brief message, she stated that although she had departed Adair County almost sixty years earlier, she still looked forward to receiving her "old home paper."

Mrs. Allen, a native of either Clinton or Cumberland County, was then approaching her 80th birthday. She, her parents, and older siblings resided in Adair County by 1850, and that was where young Miss Allen met and fell in love with Jeptha T. Powell. They were married there in February 1867, a few months before she turned 20.

Carol Perkins: Christmas in the 1950's

Previous column: Carol Perkins: The things we do for our children

By Carol Perkins

The older I become, the more I seem to remember about the days of my girlhood (is that a word?). Christmas season takes me back to when the world sparkled as if under a magical spell. Even today that same captivating feeling waves across me when I see candles in windows, brightly lit trees in front windows, and wreaths on doors. These images ignite a memory of Christmas in the 50's.

My parents loved Christmas, especially my dad. Wearing his four buckle boots, he tramped through the field behind our house a week before Christmas to find a tree of which my mother would approve.
