Mike Watson: the story of the historic Adair Courthouse

By Mike Watson

The current situation is keeping many from their usual activities. I am a natural 'hermit' or think I am. To relieve the stress of captivity for those of you here, I intend to start posting from my archive.

I started writing for the local newspapers in 1983, under direction of Ed and Linda Waggener, with a (usually) weekly column on local history, genealogy, events, etc. And I've been cranking out such material since. This is a long one, but...

From April 2009:

When this area was an unclaimed wilderness, the Long Hunters made their way through the forest and cane brakes to establish camps, one near Columbia, on Skin House Branch. These hearty souls were adventurers, willing to risk life and limb to hunt and explore new and sometimes dangerous expanses of God's bountiful land. This was then--as now--beautiful land. Some of these same hunters would follow the earliest settlers into what was Lincoln, then Green, now Adair County to build homes, raise crops and nurture families. With the breaking of the way, settlers poured into this section of Kentucky--they were our ancestors. They were brave, courageous, hard-working and progressive.

SBA offers disaster assistance to Kentucky small businesses

By Michael Lampton

Atlanta, GA - The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to Kentucky small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza announced today. SBA acted under its own authority, as provided by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act that was recently signed by the President, to declare a disaster following a request received from Gov.

Beshear: Volunteers needed for Taylor Co. Senior meals

In his evening address, Gov. Beshear announced that Kentucky is significantly ahead of other Southern states in preparedness, volunteer coordination and meal delivery programs for seniors. On Monday, March 23, 11,825 meals were served statewide, an increase of 3,825 meals (150%), according to the Department of Health and Family Services.

The Governor said he knows that Trigg, Graves, Mason, Taylor, Lawrence and Christian counties need help preparing more meals for seniors. It is no failure of leadership, but these counties need help making meals for seniors and Kentuckians should reach out to their local elected officials if they can help. The Governor also said many Kentuckians, groups and food banks are doing so much to help and he appreciates it.

Grissom-Martin working with families on new services

From Grissom-Martin Funeral Home

To the community we live and serve in:

Difficult times come with difficult decisions that have to be made, such as we are in now with the Covid-19 Pandemic.

No two funerals are the same and it has always been our goal that each family be able to honor their family member as they desire. Due to the recommendation from Governor Andy Beshear that funerals be limited to “Closest of Family” and “Private Burials”, it has become different for all of us. We are obligated to comply with this recommendation so that no further orders are announced that will cease what is being allowed now.

I went on line to see if I could buy some of this Hemp Toilet Paper and just like everybody else they are out of this paper also. But I will try it when it is available again. If anyone out there knows where I can buy some let me know.

Hemp for toilet paper

By Marie Freeman

We need to turn to an alternative like hemp. Reasons why hemp is so great for toilet paper include:

It's cheaper to manufacture hemp toilet paper than regular toilet paper because it uses less energy and chemicals in the process. Ordinary toilet paper requires harsh chemicals to break down the fibers of the tree, and the hemp plant doesn't. Toilet paper requires only the cellulose part of the plant, trees are 30% cellulose but hemp is 85% cellulose!

It's biodegradable, more so than any other tissue paper.

4-H Summer Camp Tournament

By Tony Rose
Adair County Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development

Missing the NCAA Basketball Tournament and the bracket contest the go along with the tournament? Thanks to a few 4-H Agents, they have developed a 4-H Summer Camp Tournament bracket contest. So for fun, Adair County 4-H is sponsoring a local contest for campers, CITS, Teens, and Adults. With all going on in the world or some cases not going on, we thought this could be a fun activity.

There will be online voting for the brackets starting on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. We will release the details about how you can participate in online voting as soon as we get them. But you can check out the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service Facebook page or the Instagram page at adairces to see how to participate in the online voting.

The local bracket contest will work as follows:
  • Download the bracket at this link: 2020-03-23-Summer-Camp-Tourney.jpg

  • Fill out the bracket

  • Email your completed bracket to by 11pmCT, on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
We know that this a short turn-around, but we can not control that. There will be a division for campers, CITS, Teen Leaders, and Adults. A winner in each category will be selected by whose bracket is the most correct. The camper winner will receive a free camp registration and one item from the 4-H Camp Store. The winner in the CIT, Teen Leader and Adult division will receive one time from the 4-H Camp Store.

Toilet paper in major news with the Coronavirus

The COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, or, as the President refers to it, the Chinese virus, may also be remembered as the toilet paper virus because that seems to be the most consistent scarcity as closures cause stockpiling. In her article below, the writer tells us more on the subject from her historic Trabue Russell House documentation. - LW

By Vonnie Kolbenschlag

The Trabue-Russell House has a bathroom now, but the Trabue's never had such a convenience, nor did many of the successors, since a water system was not in place in Columbia until the 1937s. But, toilet paper is now provided, so I wrote a brief history telling about it. Everything has a history as does every word we speak.

Blood Drive Wednesday at T. J. Health Pavilion

By Stacey Biggs

There will be a blood drive on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, from 1pmCT to 6pmCT in the community center of the T.J. Health Pavilion, 310 N L Rogers Wells Blvd, Glasgow, KY.

Blood drives nationwide are being cancelled at an alarming rate, which is decreasing the nation's blood supply. As of last week, it is estimated that 150,000 units have been lost due to cancellations. Because the need for blood never stops, T.J. Regional Health will host multiple blood drives over the next few weeks at the T.J. Health Pavilion Community Center.

We understand why people may be hesitant to come out for a blood drive, but the American Red Cross has implemented additional precautions to ensure the safety of donors and staff, including:
