Good morning, County Line readers! Happy Wednesday and happy … National Barbie Day? Is that the best we can do? National Crabmeat Day? National Meatball Day? National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day? Can that even be real?
How about we forget the faux holidays for today, since March 9 seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel in that regard. Happy hump day! We’ve got an exciting one ahead of us.
In economic development news, Synergy Food Group, located in the former Majestic Yachts building on Veterans Memorial Bypass in Columbia, will hold its official ribbon cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. We’ll have photos and coverage from the event posted this afternoon, as well as — fingers crossed — an interview with the new plant’s operations manager (and Columbia City Councilor), Craig Dean.
We’ll have plenty of other fresh content coming to you throughout the day as well, including an exciting announcement introducing the two newest members of The County Line team. Stay tuned!
Keep warm today, and dry if you must be out early. While the late night/early morning rain is expected to dissipate by mid-morning, the high in both Adair and Russell counties is only 50 degrees. Just after 5 a.m., it’s a wet, rainy, messy 41 degrees at The County Line’s Adair branch in north Columbia, and reports from company headquarters in Russell Springs indicate it’s a tick cooler, an even 40, on the east side of Kentucky 80. Basically, it’s March in Kentucky, so prepare accordingly.
We’re wishing a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY today to Brittany Bearden! As always, readers are encouraged to send additions to our birthday and anniversary calendars — just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your special dates added to the list!
