Lucky Old Adair County

Some people have all the luck. Over in Adair County., which adjoins Washington county on the west, they have developed a sure enough monster that may in the end prove as popular as those aquatic freaks that reportedly inhabit the waters of South Arkansas.
The Adair County monster appears to be in the very best tradition of the breed, complete with red eyes that glow in the dark, claws and long, shaggy hair. It preys on goats and calves and has, it is reported, attacked a 15-year old boy.
Now, as everyone knows, a good old-fashion monster is worth as much to a county’s economy as a new factory and costs only a fraction as much, factors that lead us to look to our neighboring county with acute envy. Why couldn’t the monster have crossed the state line and taken up residence in Washington County? Think what it would have done for the late summer and early fall tourist trade.
The Adair County sheriff’s office has been receiving reports for some time about missing calves and – in the Associated Press’ words – “partially slaughtered” goats in an area near the Arkansas line. Now the creature is reported to have attacked Brian Jones, 15, clawing and scratching him. Young Jones told sheriff’s deputies that the creature grabbed him, clawing and biting, but threw him to the ground when some of his friends appeared. He bore claw marks on his back in proof.
It may well be argued that the monster is going too far when it leaves claw marks on boys of 15, but think of the valuable publicity – publicity that will be enhanced as posses begin to take the field in search of the red eyed creature. The tourist trade in Adair County can only go up as a result.
The Adair County undersheriff, Gary Fain, said that his office doesn’t “believe anyone is lying about this.” He added that authorities don’t really know that to call the mysterious monster or how to cope with it. “And,” he added, “We don’t know what to do with it when we find it.”
We have a suggestion on that. When the law catches up with the monster, we hope they’ll suggest that is divide it efforts between Arkansas and Oklahoma, working an area west of, say, Lincoln and in the country around Westville. That way both counties, not to mention both states, would benefit.
