Billy Joe Fudge awaiting Telling II of Cumberland Parkway

Does not appreciate JIM's Suspended Segue at the end of his last artickle. And the only other information we've been able to find out, even with enhanced interrogation - cruel as that is - is that the name of famous ol' green 1963 Valiant was "Betsy."

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Hey Jim, I loved your "Telling" but don't much appreciate your suspended segue. By definition, it is "a smooth transition" but I'm having to hold my breath, awaiting "Cumberland Parkway, Telling II! - Billy Joe Fudge

Valentine events hosted by CMS softball team

By Calen McKinney

The Campbellsville Middle School softball team hosted special activities which culminated with a semi-formal Valentine dance on Saturday, February 6, 2016. CMS eighth-graders Alli Wilson and Braden Paige were crowned king and queen of the dance. Seventh-graders Kenzi Forbis and Arren Hash were crowned prince and princess.

JIM: Memories of commutes on the Cumberland Parkway

So many stories packed in 25 years - from the Cumberland Parkway's opening in 1973 until 1999 - regularly traveling the 62 miles from Russell Springs to the Parkway's Western Terminus.
Click on headline for all the fascinating tales - then pick your favorite, if you can

By JIM

The snowy day photo of the LBN Parkway you posted recently (left) brought back a lot of memories.

I regularly ran the Cumberland Parkway (as we greybeards will forever know it) from Russell Springs to the western terminus at I-65 from the time it opened in the summer of 1973 until we pulled up stakes and moved north seventeen years ago.

Poetry of Robert Stone: Words of mine that never stop

Words of mine that never stop
~ a sonnet on the ninth anniversary of meeting a young artist
The day we met no future was foreseen.
You handed me the painting of the chime,
I gave you asking price agreed between.
To hear your senior talk would be last time.

Small world had some unlikely things in store.
You were the one who showed my friend around
when he for me walked through an unlocked door
to check some far from me nearby him ground.

Surprise that twice we each were far from home
but very close the friends we visited.
Creative arts the world I would we roam
but something seems to bar the quizzes thread.

Nine years of words of mine that never stop
and your advice that patience be my prop.
~ Robert Stone, 12 February 2016

Ron Heath states why he will vote for Adair County to go wet

'The solution isn't for Adair County to stay dry. It's for parents to accept responsibility for raising their children so they know right from wrong when it comes to alcohol, drugs, and driving.' - RON HEATH
Click on headline for complete commentaryBR>
By Ron Heath
Personal commentary

For some time now I have read with interest the ongoing discussion about whether Adair County should "go wet" or "stay dry." Area residents have expressed their opinions for and against. Some comments are based strictly on emotions. They make wild and unsubstantiated claims of impending doom if the county goes wet. Others have tried to present a rational argument either for or against the issue at hand. Today I'd like to add my two cents worth.

I intend to vote for Adair County to go wet. Many individuals have already mentioned the economic impact the sale of alcohol will have on this area. Instead of tax revenue going to Taylor, Marion, Russell, or Somerset Counties it will stay here to help citizens of Adair County. There are only two ways I know to balance a budget - either cut spending or raise taxes. Given the choice I know which one I would take.

Writer urges Yes vote for Employment, Economic & Tourism

Personal commentary

Dear Editor,

I am writing in regards to the upcoming Wet/Dry election. A YES vote will bring positive employment, economic and tourism benefits. Don't be intimidated by scare tactics. Research the facts before making a decision. We've made no major advancements on the economic front for many years. Isn't it time we give our citizens a chance to prosper here? I urge you to VOTE YES on March 22, 2016.

Thank you,

By Shirl Moore

I have lived in Adair County for 8 years.

In that time I have learned how much influence the bootlegger holds over the community.

Kentucky Afield Outdoors: 5 questions with John Hast

By Kevin Kelly

Frankfort, KY - The allure of doing "cool stuff" for a living played into John Hast's decision to take a seasonal job with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources back in 2006.

The Owensboro, Kentucky, native considered putting his biology degree from Centre College to use as an agriculture extension agent when along came the opportunity to work as a wildlife technician.

It was a foot in the door and a launching pad toward establishing himself as a leading authority on Kentucky's black bears.

Shannon Sexton: Legalize it, regulate it and control it.

Response to: Comments re article 81008 Michael Regan Will vote to keep dark genie in the bottle

By Shannon Sexton, Chair, PAC (Progress in Adair County
Personal Commentary

With all due respect, your commentary revolves around fatalities of teenage drivers in alcohol related accidents. The legal age to purchase alcohol in a wet county is 21. Businesses will not jeopardize their investment and license by selling to underage teens. Where are these teens getting alcohol? I would suspect illegally from the bootlegger - the same place they\'ve purchased it for years.

Legalize it, regulate it and control it. Thanks,
- Shannon Sexton
