Adair County residents will vote for a Second District County Commissioner Tuesday.
Larry Lee Smith is challenging the incumbent Mark Thompson in the election for Adair County Second District Commissioner.
Smith, who’s a farmer, said he decided to run for the position because he is concerned with road and bridge maintenance in Adair County.

Located on the main street of Paris, Missouri, Jonesy’s Café has been drawing locals for its coffee, breakfast and old-fashioned soda fountain since the 1930s. Owners Steven and Connie Hancock say it’s a place where everyone feels at home. We arrived at the crack of dawn to find Connie firing up the grill, waiting for the usual mix of farmers, workers, retirees and opinions to find their way into the café as they do each morning. What’s on the table at Jonesy’s? Not surprisingly, a good deal of disillusionment with politicians and a political process.
