A brief agenda at the Columbia-Adair County Economic Development Authority, Inc. came with good news on several fronts, but the dominating issue was coming to grips with the drug problem impact Adair County and other South Central Kentucky counties are coming to grips with three generational family histories of drug abuse.

The authority got good news on its finances from Treasurer Ann Martin, heard from Chairman Mark Dykes that the Green River Commerce Park Sewer project should be within five work days of completion, that the groups new website, is now online, and that their contribution to the upkeep of the Chamber Building may be reduced if a lease arrangement the Chamber is working on becomes a reality.

But the optimism was sobered by a discussion of the illegal drug problem in Adair County when Chairman Dykes commented on the recent drug use stories in the Community Voice. Dykes said, "This is the No. 1 issue facing the county at this time."
