Amy Pike: Mr. Arnold merely stepped up to right a wrong

Personal Commentary on Election Issue - Disagrees with Jamie Isabelle that it's a matter of who has money

Amy Pike writes:
I must respectfully disagree with Jamie on this issue. Regardless of who has money and who doesn't, people were denied their civil right to vote in an election. Judge Vance reviewed all the evidence submitted and due to the length of time it took for her to reach a verdict, I'm confident that she saw proven discrepancies. It appears some want to blame the voters for not saying anything in the moment, when that is far from the truth! I know of several people who weren't allowed to vote in the city races and did bring it to the attention of the poll workers and were told that the map indicated they lived in county.

One went so far as to appeal in front of the election board on Election Day, and was told since she cast her ballot without the city races on it, that she forfeited her right to vote in those elections. If the maps, ballots, machines, or whatever were incorrect and anyone was denied the right to cast a vote, then a new election should be held. In my opinion this has nothing to do with how much money any of the candidates have or don't have and I don't see as to where Mr. Arnold as acted with entitlement. He has merely stepped up and asked for a wrong to be corrected. No one knows who will win if their is a new election. People are making this about everything but the fact that there was enough discrepancy for a Judge to overturn the election. --Amy Pike

Mayoral Issue: Who's Driving the Bus(es)???

Transparency, Please - When will answers come to let everybody in on what's going on?

Had a conversation with an Adair County voter complaining about the lack of clarity on the Mayoral litigation issue. The voter complained, "Nobody is driving the bus."

The uncertainty in our small part of the world has been likened to those seemingly endless hours after 9-11 when the public was wondering if the country had a President or not, not knowing where the president was and not knowing that (according to some local legend) Dick Cheney was safely stashed away in a secret location right here in the Commonwealth.

What's going on now. Is it just us, here at CM, or do others have the feeling that there's a huge PR Gap? Do you feel that those in authority need to make frequent statements on what is going on, let us know "who is driving the bus"? - EW

Letter: Problem with election worker

Mitzi Bault writes:
I have a problem with one worker who has worked several years where I vote. The first time I used the little flat table top computer. There were two. I was at one and a worker was showing a little lady how to use it. She said to the helper " I do not know about these." She pointed to the bottom of the page. The worker pointed and said, "This one and this one are good ones."

This same worker tried to go in the the booth with my Mom one year. My little Mom let him know, "She did not need his help."

At this years election, I was given my paper and I went the last row of tables on the back left side. No one was a round me. You know that fealing someone is watching you? I looked around and this person was behind me looking over my shoulder. I got up to take my paper to the scan box. This worker tried to get my paper. He said he could take it for me. I said "No!!!"

As I was waiting for my Mom, I was very upset about this person. I told one of the workers what I have watched this person do. She just said, "Well, I have never seen him do anything." It sure made me wonder how many people that thought he was helping, when to me he was breaking the law. --Mitzi

Sally Kemp: What does having money have to do with it?

Personal commentary

Sally Kemp writes
I wish someone would explain to me how having money and being a write in candidate created the problems associated with the election snafu! Voters denied their civil right to vote, voters given the right to vote without living in the City, voting machines having locks removed and machine tally's not matching ballots. How could this possibly be associated with Ben Arnold? - SALLY KEMP

Mike Watson: Adair Countian lost life as result of Sultana explosion

150 years ago a terrific explosion aboard the Sultana, a steam vessel on the Mississippi River, near Memphis, claimed as many as 1800 lives; most were recent prisoners of war. MW

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

(Written Monday, 27 April 2015) - One hundred fifty years ago, 27 April 1865, the Sultana, a side-wheel steam boat, carrying 2,427 people, burned and exploded on the Mississippi River near Memphis, Tennessee.

As many as 1,800 lost their lives in the disaster. Many were former prisoners of war, returning home. No complete and accurate list of those lost is available as no accurate record of those who were on board survived.

Marcia Shuffett: Dr. Arnold acted after citizens told him of issues

Writer says Dr. Arnold didn't instigate problem
Personal Commentary

Marcia Shuffett writes:
Also, I would like to point out, unless I misunderstood, is that Dr. Arnold only reacted to the problems that may have happened in the voting process when citizens saw things that weren't right and went to him for help and not that Dr. Arnold was crying in his soup and angry that he had not won.

That is two distinct and completely different senarios...some people seem to think that Dr. Arnold instigated this whole thing and from what I heard and understood, nothing could be farther from the truth. - Marcia Shuffett

Jamie Isabelle comments on the Mayor's Race

Personal commentary

Jamie Isabelle writes: As I have said before, all this mayor mess boils down to one thing. That's if you have money then you should have your way.

There shouldn't even be a debate on this issue in my opinion. For starters, if Arnold was so worried about our big city of Columbia he would have been on the ballot, in black and white from the beginning like Hardwick was and the other candidates.

Showdown opponents stage make up: United they Stand

2015-04-28 - Adair Annex Basement, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
After a lively political showdown at the Wednesday April 22, 2015 Adair County Board of Elections meeting, Hunter Durham and Larry Smith staged this show of friendship at the latest meeting of the Adair County Board of Elections, yesterday afternoon. While was not present at the famous first debate, we have learned that one of the gentlemen is a staunch Eisenhower Republican, the other a known Democrat. The latter hammered away at his rival, demanding to know what part of peace and prosperity he didn't like, and what part of the record stock market he was against. The other shot back that he liked Happy Chandler and was open minded, though he did question where Franklin Delano Roosevelt stood in relationship to God. Or so they told me. (One of the impartial observers, CJE Mike Stephens, vouched for some of this imformation.) It was Smith's first actual visit to Hunterland. In the background, three members of the Adair County Board of Elections, Billy Curry (R), Sheriff Harrison Moss, and Ben Loy (d) answered media questions. - ED WAGGENER (Unbiased Democrat)
