Happy National Pack Your Lunch Day

Good morning, County Line readers! Happy Thursday and happy National Pack Your Lunch Day! 

Long ago, when this writer was a kid attending Colonel William Casey Elementary School, there was no better feeling during a school day than sitting down at the lunch table with your friends and pulling out your lunchbox, packed fresh by a mom or mom-associate that very morning, while all your friends and classmates trudged through the line with their boring old lunch trays for their boring old spaghetti-corn-and-milk combos. The packed lunch could be taken to even higher levels if the typical juice box or Capri Sun were replaced with a good old canned Ski. 

We can’t go back to elementary school, but we can replicate the meal, so pack a couple sandwiches, a bag of chips, a pudding cup, and a couple cold drinks this morning before you head out for work — you’ll feel like the coolest kid in class again.

We’re looking at another busy day in County Line country — check in with us to see regular updates — and are excited to announce that the first of our “Spring Sports Previews” for Adair and Russell counties are set to debut either tomorrow or Monday.

Right at 6:30 a.m. this morning, it’s a crisp 35 degrees in both Adair and Russell counties, and fine — if cool — weather is expected the rest of the day. The temperature is projected to climb steadily to today’s 57-degree high, and expect plenty of sunshine. Cooler days await over the next 72 hours, but there’s no rain or precipitation in today’s forecast.

We don’t have any birthdays or anniversaries to announce this morning, but as always, readers are encouraged to send additions to our birthday and anniversary calendars. Email us at countyline@adair-russell.com to get your special dates added to the list!
