Letter: about those Wild Violets

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
Pen can photograph all those Wild Violets he wants to but I still hate them. I fight them constantly in my yard. - DR
Re: Wildflower: Wild violet

Dave, this sounds like my father-in-law who was known to fight wild honeysuckle with a passion while I fought to preserve everything that bloomed - always two sides to every subject! - LW

CPD: Man arrested on school property

By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

On Friday afternoon, May 6, 2022, Adair County School Resource Officers from The Columbia Police Department were alerted by staff at the Adair County School Board's central office that a male subject who had been trespassed from school property previously on Monday, May 2, was walking on Greensburg Street in front of the central office and Adair County Middle School.

An Officer drove to school intersection and Greensburg Street to see if subject had came onto the property. The male subject, after seeing the police cruiser, continued to walk on Greensburg Street past Indian Drive. During this time, the officer moved out of view from Greensburg Street and within minutes received another call the party had turned around and was now walking on school property towards the high school.

Officers stopped the male, who was still walking near the gate on Indian Drive, and took him into custody without incident.
