The Hotel Miller Fire has to be one of the top things. Like six people died in that fire.

I remember a bad wreck back in the late 70's in which three local teens were killed out on Holmes Bend Road...that was pretty tragic as all three were very popular at ACHS.

I think the Meg Wellnitz thing had to be one of the worst things as well. This town was scared to death for weeks just because of the way Doc, his wife and son were murdered and no one really had a clue who or why...only that it looked like a professional job.

The 1971 Tornado that killed several people out on 551 was a terrible tragedy as well.

thats another thing i think they should make it to everyone who is on welfare or draws any kind of government check, is required to take a drug test....and lets see how many are positive...drugs in columbia is everywhere and i agree i don't see someone coming anytime soon, but someone is out there who can do it, they just need the help and to be guided in the right direction....out of the law enforcement in columbia there is maybe three good uniforms, the rest is just a joke....either they are crooked and can be paid off or they are too old or young and scared shitless....i mean part of being an officer is to serve and protect your community but obviously that isnt the case in this small town...i have seen it with my own two eyes how scared the police are of certain people just because they are black and big men, well they can fall down just like everybody else, hell they are only human....they can't eat you can they? then stop being p****** and do your job and help with the main problem in columbia
I think the worst thing we ever had happen was not voting in mike burton for sheriff but i guess 350 votes in the whole county just couldn't cut it could it lack of law enforcement. Maybe

Murder of Shorty Holt

Campbellsville, KY

I think the murder of Shorty Holt was bad. But what's is worse is the fact that there have never been any arrest made. Looks like they are not even trying to solve the murder. Hopefully one day I'll be shocked and the law will figure it out.

Didn't some kid do something similar out in Knifley? I can't remember exactly, but I was thinking some kid killed his/her parents out there. Anyone know what I'm talking about? As far as the cold case murders, sooner or later "most" of them will get solved. I've seen them go 6 or 7 years with no news, then BAM - they roll a whole crowd in on charges. I don't know how they do it, but more power to them. I say an eye for an eye & a tooth for a tooth.

It was Blake Walker in Knifley he killed both his parents. I think it was about seven years ago. You can see him in the kool system he got 99 years.

I know someone that would make a great officer because he hates drugs, is not afraid to go or anywhere in this town to take down the ones that is dealing. I wish the ones that was running for sheriff would come talk to him or the state either one and I guarentee you no one would pay him off.

who is he? i got a few in mind myself including me, but im not going to throw any names out here cause this site is good for rumors and making shit up but if you stick to the topic it can be an alright site for new ideas such as this one to solve a major problem in a small town....i myself hate drugs and what comes with it and i hate greed so i definitely could not be paid off....i believe in doing what is right and i also believe in karma....what goes around comes around everythign bad thing you do comes back ten times as much
