It’s the Ides of March, but no need to beware

Good morning and happy Tuesday, County Line readers! March 15 was a famously bad day for Julius Caesar, but it might as well be a great one for us. Let’s get it. 

We see you growing in numbers, and we appreciate every one of you! Your support of this website strengthens our resolve to bring you first-class news, sports, entertainment, and local interest content every day, always from local voices. Our aim is to continue expanding our coverage, adding talented contributors, and humbly providing the service of informing and entertaining our people.

Today is National Shoe the World Day. While most of us are lucky to have a couple – or a couple dozen – pairs of kicks, not everyone is so fortunate. It’s estimated that more than 500 million people across the globe will walk around barefoot today, and not by choice. To find out how to help, whether by donating new or gently used shoes, or even by starting a shoe drive for this community, visit Soles 4 Souls. Charity Navigator rates Soles 4 Souls as a 4-star charity, stating that donors can “give with confidence.”

Just a few minutes after 6 a.m., it’s a cold, wet 47 degrees at The County Line’s west office in Columbia. Reports from Russell Springs are the same but slightly colder, with the thermometer reading 45 degrees just outside company headquarters. The rain is expected to subside and temperatures rise, approaching a high of 70, but don’t expect too much sun – cloud coverage is in the forecast all day. 

We don’t have any birthdays or anniversaries to celebrate today, 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!
