Sometimes change starts in the most unlikely places

By Barbara Armitage
Personal Commentary

Iíve always felt that the written word was a powerful force.

Just recently I have received - through the Untied States mail, an official government agency I remind you not one but three advertisements from some of our larger businesses in the area each advertising the availability of beer, wine and liquors at reasonable prices.

I myself have always believed that when you send a thought out into the universe itís the beginning of change.

Are these newspaper advertisements a predictor of the future, a prophecy of change to come?

Letís all raise our glasses to the future of Adair County. It doesnít take a mind reader to see where Iím going with this. - Barbara Armitage
