Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! We’ve made it to Day No. 2 at The County Line, surviving our first 24 hours in business unscathed. That seems like as good of a reason as any to bust out the big bag and celebrate because it’s National Tortilla Chip Day.
Maybe you’re a normal person, or maybe you’re the kind of monster who pronounces it “tor-tiLLa,” but we can all agree that salsa wouldn’t be the same without the salty, baked triangles.
We appear to be in for a wet one today, with rain in the forecast for the entire County Line coverage area. It’s currently just a few minutes before 7 a.m., and the thermometer reads a brisk 34 degrees at our Adair County branch in north Columbia. This morning’s heavy cloud coverage is set to remain throughout the day, and the precipitation steadily falling right now is only rain, but on the verge of becoming a whole new mess if the temperature drops even a little.
The forecast is identical at the other end of Highway 80. The temperature just outside the County Line’s Russell Springs headquarters is 34 degrees, and the heavy cloud coverage and projected rain are expected to continue. This isn’t the time to forget your coat, as it’s unlikely to reach even a 50-degree high in Adair or Russell counties.
In the sports world, the Indians of Adair County are set to take on the Campbellsville Eagles in the 2-seed V. 3-seed first round matchup in the boys’ 20th District Tournament tonight at Campbellsville High. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. CST.
We wish all our readers the best today but want to give special shoutouts to those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries. Our first-ever birthday submission was sent to us yesterday, and we’re pleased to wish Bowman “Bo” Staten a happy and healthy birthday as he turns 2 years old today. Bo is the son of Chandler and Hailey Staten, of Adair County, and his grandparents are Barney and Nancy Taylor, Bridgette Staten, and Wes and Melinda Staten. Have a good one, Bo!
Readers are encouraged to email their birthdays and anniversaries to email@example.com to be added to our daily calendar.
