By Ed Waggener

In a 10-minute special called session this morning, Monday morning, August 20, 2018, the Adair County Fiscal Court met and approved the Personnel Committee report presented by Magistrate Perry Reeder, and approved the hiring of two full time Adair County Road Department employees the committee recommended, but at standard rates rather than the Personnel Committee's recommendation that the two be given a higher starting pay.

In separate actions, the members voted to hire:
  • David Smith - , at a starting pay of $9.60 per hour, (rather than $10/hr recommended by the Personnel Committee,) with the stipulation that that he obtain, on his own a CDL license, and pass qualify to run the herbicide sprayer within 90 days. The vote was 5-1, with Magistrates Greg Caldwell (6), Terry Hadley (7), Perry Reeder (4), and Sammy Baker (3), joined by CJE Michael Stephens voting for the hire, and Magistrate Daryl Flatt voting against.
  • Daniel Keen - Daniel Keen was hired on the same pay scale and terms as David Smith, but the vote was unanimous, 6-0, with Magistrate Flatt joining in affirming.
The court had agreed with Magistrate Flatt that the personnel policies should be modified before making exceptions for a single group.

Yellow flower corrected - it is Partridge Pea, not Jewelweed

Sharon Whitehurst writes:
I believe your yellow flower is 'Partridge Pea' [chamaecrista fasciculata] very widespread at this time of year. [And no, I don't have that Latin name on the tip of my tongue!]. Jewelweed blossoms have a more orange coloration and the stems have a 'watery' consistency when broken - supposedly the liquid is soothing if applied to the irritation from stinging nettle or the like. Jewelweed produces dangling seed pods which 'explode' when touched. - Sharon Whitehurst

Starting after the Farmers Market closed in Columbia, we headed west for a half-day exploration, or you can give this route a whole day and do even more touring than we did - maybe even make it to Mammoth Cave. It's a bonus if this tour is taken on a cloudy afternoon as it was, Saturday, August 18, 2018, so you don't have to battle sun grins on the western route.
