Congratulations to our own Adairville School. This is the 5th year they have received the honor of being a National School to Watch. In addition to that they are the only school in Kentucky that has received that distinction 5 years in a row. We have a great school, the students, the staff and the parents. Way to go Adairville School. We are so proud of you.
Everyone that missed coming to the Chamber dinner missed out on a truly incredible entertaining evening. The food was delicious. Patty and Kelly and all their staff did a wonderful job. The food was delicious. They had the tables set up so nice and it looked great. The entertainment was great as well. Robert Brock brought Mark Twain to life so well, there were so many times you were drawn into the character so much that you would have thought Mark Twain was indeed alive and well. It was such a fun evening. Danny Finch presented awards to William Washington, Charles and Jennifer Brindley, Walter Clinard, and Jim Wilkerson for their individual contributions to Adairville.
A word of caution to all our residents. There have been several break-ins in Adairville and actually all of Logan County. Be sure and lock your cars. Don’t leave any valuables in the car in plain sight. That includes Christmas packages, cell phones, etc. Everyone try to be more aware of your surroundings. If you see something suspicious at your house or your neighbor’s house, call 270-726-4911 and they will dispatch the closest officer to you. This is the quickest way to get help to your home. Also, if you have information that could lead to the arrest of these thieves, call that same number or call the sheriff’s department directly.
Coffee Bottom Girl
This past Saturday I had all of Mama’s first cousins for breakfast. What a fun time. When they first arrived, I told Pam that if she would notice on the wall I had two pencil drawings she had done, one of Prices Mill and the other of Neosho Grocery. I said I have a renowned artist living within three blocks and I have her art on my wall. So many of the same stories were told but somehow they are just as funny every time they are told. There were 13 there for breakfast and my house is much bigger than most of our ancestors and we again discussed how they ever got everyone in when they had Christmas dinners for the entire clan. Our cousin from Greenbrier is planning on having all the cousins on Christmas day this year if everyone stays well. It is kind of a replay of going to Mammie’s on Christmas day. I understand more everyday what the song “Precious Memories” means and it gets more precious all the time.

“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand”
