Letter: Memories of Silver

Comments re article 108267 ACES Attendance and essays win bicycles

By BJ Hagy

The price for going to school has gone up since my days in grade school at Knifley Grade Center. "Casey Creek Lodge #536 F.& A.M. presented bicycles..." for attendance for only part of the year, and for essays.

Teachers used to give out a Silver Dollar if a student make it through a complete school year without missing a day. It was almost inevitable that many of us would miss at least one day, due to being sick or for some family emergency that would keep us home.

I personally wasn't successful until I reached the 8th Grade. Mr. John Dunbar was the 8th Grade teacher when I was there. I didn't much care for Mr. Dunbar so I was determined that he was going to have to pay me a Silver Dollar that year. It was the only school year I made it without missing a day. I earned my dollar.

Thanks to the Casey Creek Masonic Lodge our teachers don't have to give up their Silver like they used to. --BJ

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Saturday, January 4, 2020, at 1:04pmCT, Deputy Chandler Staten and Sheriff Josh Brockman were dispatched to an injury collision (vehicle vs rock wall), that was reported nine miles west of Columbia on the Louis B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway.

Thu J Musick, 26, of Nashville, was operating a 2008 Honda eastbound on the parkway when she came into a brief sleet storm that covered the roadway in ice.

Musick lost control of her vehicle, striking a rock wall off the right hand shoulder of the roadway. Musick was not injured in the collision, but her passenger, Nadia Omar, 22, also of Nashville, sustained injuries and was treated on the scene by Adair County EMS and then transported to TJ Health of Columbia.

While Sheriff's personnel were on the scene, an additional three collisions called in, for a total of 4 accidents in that 1/4 mile stretch. The other collisions were all non-injury.

All collisions were investigated by the Sheriffs Office. Agencies responding included the Adair County Sheriff's Office, Adair County EMS, and the Columbia Adair County Fire Department.

A maintenance project at the tailwater area of Green River Lake dam prevented the usual water release in December, and Green River Lake is currently over 31 feet above winter pool. This week, the Corps has been working to release water as we enter a statistically wetter period of the year. On January 4, 2020 the Green River Lake - US Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District facebook page announced that they "will be opening up to 18 tenths on the main gates with an outflow of around 6,800 cfs by days end."

The Tailwater Recreation Area remains closed to the public at this time. Due to flooding conditions, Site 1 boat ramp, Smith Ridge boat ramp, and Wilson Creek Recreation Area remain closed at this time.

Larry J. Smith, General Manager, The Big Dawg, FM 99.9 radio, got out to the lake yesterday to collect some photos. Click headline for album.
