Symposium on Dangers of Distracted Driving March 13

By Ted Sloan

FRANKFORT, KY - It's a parent's worst nightmare - a phone call or a knock on the front door from authorities bearing the news that a loved one has been killed or injured in an accident.

"A Parent's Worst Nightmare" is the theme of the 2015 Louis Crosier Farm Safety Symposium at the Dixie Fire School in March. The symposium is scheduled for March 13, 2015 at at 6pmCT/7pmET, in the RPC212 auditorium at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

"Whether on a tractor, or on an ATV, or in a vehicle, a moment's carelessness can end a life or change it forever," Agriculture Commissioner James Comer said. "In a time when drivers have more distractions than ever before, it's imperative that we raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving."

Scenic Adair Co., KY: Putman County - it just greens out

2015-03-02 - Putman County, Adair Co. District One, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Searching for winter pictures Saturday, we spotted this double bank of giant draped icicles, the kind which tempt one to stop the car and see what happens when one is pulled down. Fearing possibly lethal consequences, the urge was quelled. The bank is along Sulphur Creek - to the best of our knowledge - and is in the Putman County section of Adair County. The late Renaissance Man, Dr. W.K. Neat, Varmintologist and Man of Science, and well versed in all matters of travel, was once ask to define the limits of the county within a county. "Oh," he said, "you'll know when you get there. It just greens out at you." That's how we found the magical, mythical kingdom of a Saturday, 28 Feb 2015, on a Know Your County Better Tour. It just greened out at us. - EW

Introducing the newest arrivals at GRAS

In mid-week, seven tiny little four day old orphaned puppies arrived, presenting a huge challenge and stealing the hearts of everyone there, including the Director, Kim Sallee. That challenge was met. The puppies thrived with love and bottle feeding. On day three she said she was even more sure these little fatties were going to make it. On Saturday, February 28, Jimmy Harmon brought in a little black momma and her 4-5 day old baby. Little Momma turned into a blessing, able to take on nursing for two of the other orphaned puppies, and assist the director with judgment calls on the blended family's well being. Kim Sallee promises to let the community follow the family vicariously through her stories and pictures. More than that, she says there's room for volunteers and visitors to GRAS - already turning into a delightful destination - better than a trip to a zoo in the city.

Mike Watson: Family Artifacts of Old Adair County...

Prologue: I stumbled across one of these items researching Lapsleys in early Adair County after reading Tine Reynolds' article on the origins of Frank Wolford and the Lapsley connections. Only one item connects to Lapsley, but the others seemed to fall into view as I searched. - MW

By Mike Watson

Time is a relative thing, to some. What catches the eye, ear, imagination? No one know what tomorrow will bring, regardless of their qualifications. Time slips from my grasp daily, time I will never be able to regain. So, while I was committed to finishing a 'job of work' on the War of 1812, I slipped into another time-stream and pursued a bit of fluff. The following may be of some interest to those, intrigued like self, in the activities and possessions of the long-departed. Here are three bits from the files of the Adair County News:

Mary Keltner: Link to best burger in every state in America

Yes, if you guessed a quirky little Sincere Restaurant two counties away from Columbia, but had doubts, you may be right.The burgers are so good natives have for years driven back just to enjoy a half dozen of the delicious morsels per meal. And whether you think this location is so unique it's is own country, not just a county, not a part of any larger jurisdiction in the universe, it is

Mary Keltner sends this link, with message, "Note the entry for Kentucky...." We're adding the rules: Guess before click and let's know if you deserve a Gold Star for your forehead.

If you guessed the a home patted burger with a yellow tomato, thick slice of onion, lettuce just torn from the head, served at the old Riggins' Restaurant in Dunnville, KY, you have the right burger but not the one chosen in the column.

If you suggested my Mother's homemade burger, made with oatmeal extender, Worchester Sauce, chips of onion and celergy, with lettuce/onion, onion, served on slices of Wonderbread - we couldn't afford hamburger buns, but did know for another 65 years that Wonderbread was better - you would be right about the burger, wrong about the selection.

A caring mother's/foster mother's eyes

2015-03-01 - Green River Animal Shelter, 455 Appleby Drive, Columbia, KY - Photo by Kim Sallee, Director, Green River Animal Shelter.
Kim Sallee, Director of the Green River Animal Shelter, says she'll try to keep Adair County aware of a basketful of fuzzball orphan puppies the shelter is taking care of until they are adoptable. For a time, Kim had primary puppy care alone, until the arrival of the wonderful little black dog mother above, who not only tends her natural born baby, but has accepted a foster pup, the little black and white one from the orphan family. Director Sallee has high hopes that by the orphan puppies are weaned and ready for adoption, there will be a waiting list of loving families to give them furever homes, and that the devoted mother and her puppy will have homes, too.

Scenic Casey Co., KY: Snow fog over Green River

2015-03-01 - US 127, 5.64 miles south of Liberty, Casey Co., KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
It a landmark familiar to diners at Bread of Life, 5369 US 127, Liberty, KY, but Sunday it was winter surreal, with snowy fog obscuring the hills beyond Green River. A couple of honkers - Canada Geese - year round residents - and the tree, the neat rows of corn stubble and farm pond can be seen more clearly in the foreground. Oh, and how far is it in time from Liberty: By car a little over five minutes. By float trip down Green River, about five hours, Alan W Reed, who reached this point by boat, remembers. - CM
