It’s June Dairy Month (and other weekend tidbits)

Welcome to the weekend, ladies and gentlemen. Please forgive the lack of early morning, fake holiday celebrating nonsense this week, and rest assured we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled gibberish come Monday morning.

As the headline and photo above note, this month is June Dairy Month, per a proclamation Adair Judge-Executive Gale Cowan signed yesterday. Cowan’s proclamation states, in part, that “Dairy Farmers have contributed to the development and wellbeing of Adair County since the earliest formation of Adair County,” which is both completely true and awkwardly worded. In all seriousness though, dairy farmers are some of the hardest workers one will ever meet and are wholly deserving of a month in their honor.

Sticking with the dairy theme, our Quote of the Day, courtesy of Charlie Kelly, everyone’s favorite illiterate janitor from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: 

“I was eating the old cheese to test it, to see why the rats weren’t eating it.”

Well, moving on. Russell County baseball continues its magical postseason run today with a second round state tournament matchup with Beechwood. The first pitch is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. local time, and The County Line’s social media pages will provide live updates throughout the contest.

In case you missed it yesterday, a local girl is featured on the latest season of Netflix’s smash hit, Stranger Things. Check out Maddie Wethington’s incredible story here.

The intern got the day off today, so here’s a quick weather report: It’s going to be sunny and hot today. Don’t expect any precipitation, and the high will reach the mid-80s.

This post is dedicated to the week’s birthday and anniversary celebrators: Bo and Sonya Biggs celebrated their anniversary June 1, Laura Feese Barhorst—this writer’s baby sister—turned 28 years old on June 2, and James Overby celebrated a birthday June 3. We hope all four have had the best week imaginable.
