August 16, 1977 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

The article below first appeared as "Columbia Developments" in the August 16, 1977 issue of the Adair County News. Topics included local pepper production, the state of shopping center development in the 7-county area, a note-burning at Columbia Christian Church, Audrey Waggener's cooking, a best-ever watermelon, and a proposal to market 'Grown in Adair County' produce at local restaurants and stores. --Pen

Adair first in something
Adair County has always been first in the alphabet. Now, A. L. Sinclair, of Tri-County Receiving station, says that the county may also be first in production of bell pepper. Sinclair and Larry Snell, the co-op manager, are checking the records to see if this isn't so. Whether it is or not, the pepper crop ought to be getting more recognition in Columbia than it is. Believe it or not, some of the restaurants don't have green pepper on their menus, in stuffed pepper, pizza, western omelets, or even in salads. What a shame! It will probably be up to Christine, the hometown of Tri-County receiving station, to put on the show for pepper.

About those shopping centers
The talk about a new shopping center for Columbia has become more cautious in the past few months, but it is more widespread than ever. The reason for the caution, it seems, is that two prior proposed centers never got underway. Developer Don Hillock dropped his plans for one at the corner of Burkesville and Hudson Streets shortly after he started some six years ago. The plan got much further along with developer Phil Polston and his Mark Twain Heritage Mall. Polston has since sold his property to Columbian Kermit Grider, and Grider is going ahead with the project, although he is wary of publicity before he has firm commitments and firm construction dates ready to announce.

Now enters Columbia Development Corporation, a blue chip group of local businessmen who incorporated this past week to, among other thing, develop the property of Sine Turner on Jamestown Street. The land has been optioned. It's some eight acres which has been long coveted by developers.
