Floral Hall exhibits will be entered on Tuesday, July 28. Entries will be taken at the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service located at 409 Fairground Street, Columbia, KY.

Classes that youth ages 9-18 may enter are available at http://4-h.ca.uky.edu/content/state-fair-catalog.

Adair County youth ages 9-18 are encouraged to enter their 4-H projects in the Adair County Fair. Age is based on the youth's age as of January 1, 2020.

Cloverbud youth (ages 8 under) may display their exhibits also during the County Fair.

There will also be a Cloverbud category for youth ages 1-4 years old.

We will be announcing in a couple of weeks how we will handle entries for the project fair. We are waiting to see more details about group sizes and any other guidelines we will need to follow.

History Monday: Man's Other Best Friend

By Mike Watson

There was a time when no farm could operate without horsepower. Every farmer, and for that matter every family and every business, had the need of of horses for transportation and work.

When Kentucky was a young State, formed in 1792 from the western reaches of Virginia, and counties were being formed, the general rule of thumb was that no man should have to be more than one day's ride from his county's center of justice, the courthouse. With this in mind, as new counties were formed--from the original three: Lincoln, Jefferson and Fayette and their successors--seats of justice for the new county would be within easy reach by horseback in a single day.

The earliest records of our county mention horses and valuations varied depending on pedigree and age. Most folk owned work horses, but there were those who aspired to "own fine horse flesh" and some raced. As many local people know, there was at least one official race course in the area around Columbia, just outside town on Russell Creek--in modern times, highway 55 North, just over the bridge and to the left, or so most original records indicate. And like traditional post-Revolutionary War era race tracks, and in the custom originated by Col. William Whitley, of Lincoln County, our American tracks ran counter-clock-wise (English tracks ran clock-wise).

Valuable horses were often bought and sold, and Columbia and Adair County was not exempted from this trade.

All in a Dream

By Phillip Coffey

All is not well on Valley Drive and Woodson Street, Greensburg, KY. "Doofus" has now entered the psyche and the subconscious of my neighbors. I deputized "Doofus" months ago to monitor social distances of everyone within hollering distance of me, which is a 'fer' piece.

He has exceeded his scope of sworn duty. Doofus has become the 'Freddie Kruger' of the neighborhood. Sadly he has entered a neighbors dream, thrashing him without impunity.

My neighbor and lifelong friend Gary Bagby shared his 'Doofus nightmare' with me. It seems that Gary left a package of uneaten hamburger on his patio. He went outside to retrieve the package. Doofus had gotten possession of the package. A battle ensued over the contents of the package.

City of Columbia contest - calling for beautiful pictures

By Tiffany Collins, City of Columbia

We all see the beautiful things in our town everyday. Don't we? It could be a flower coming through a sidewalk, the rain falling, dew on the grass, a child playing, or an elderly person on a bench.

"When you go through our town, we see so many things that make us smile," said Mayor Pamela Hoots. "This has been a trying year for all of us; with so much sadness in our world. We want people to reflect on the goodness in our community and each other."
