We still have good Samaritans in Adair County

We still have good people around that are willing to stop and lend a helping hand.

By Richard Raines

Thursday night I went with my dad to take his "lady friend" (I'm not sure what the proper terms are for a 77 year old widow and a 79 year old widower) home after she had gone to church with him for revival services. Neither of them likes to drive at night, so I had gotten home from work, taken off my work clothes and slipped on a pair of shorts-- really wasn't expecting to be out in public.

We got her delivered home, came back out Holmes Bend Road, and headed down 551 toward town. I don't like to turn left onto Highway 55 at any time, and try to avoid it if I can, so I intended on turning onto Pelly Lane to avoid that intersection. There was an oncoming truck and after waiting for him, I started left--only I was too far "down" the road and dived right off the end of a culvert.

I got out and looked and the front of the car was hanging with the right side (including front wheel) in the air. Before I could get back to the driver's door, people were stopping to ask, "Are you ok"? "Is anyone hurt"?

How Big Windy got its name

By Jeff Johnson

My late grandfather, Noah "Jack " Scott, (1906-1998), told me the "Big Windy " location was on the straightaway on 61 North that started around Bethany Baptist Church and ended before 'dead man's curve' that was bypassed in the early 1990's.

He stated that spirits were consumed freely and all aspects of life were discussed. Disagreements occured and violence ensued. Hence the name 'Big Windy' for all the boastful talk and violence.

In correlation to the original story of chicken thievery, I remembered an anecdote he told me of the of the dire times of the Great Depression. He said if a person took something of another in the dark of the night, it was considered stealing; however, if it was done in the light of day, it was considered "borrowing."

I know this story did not pertain to his nature. He was honest, kept his word and toiled 6 days a week--mostly farming--for most of his life. I guess he respected the people of Glensfork because of the way they had to eke out a living in "Hardscratch."
