Scenic Adair County: Geraniums at or near peak

2015-08-28 - Fountain Plaza, Downtown Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
This morning at 6:17amCT, one of the most compelling sights were the Adair County Garden Club's red geraniums by the fountain. Red seemed to dominate the area, and I thought of Dad, who used to indulge my need for a new Schwinn by telling me we'd go get one, and would point out that I could get either color I wanted, "Red is the prettiest color," he said. "unless you want maroon." It was his favorite color. I only mentioned a couple of times that I preferred Chelf blue. But he dispatched that notion quickly. And when Mr. Lipski took the order at Louisville Cycle, and the time came to pick the color, he'd say, authoritatively, "Red," unless it were time for Maroon. But that's a digression. There was another bit of not so trivial trivia, along the way: The "Yield" sign now has atop it a rectangular "One way," addition. Don't know who is responsible, but I bet it made Charles Grimsley smile. There should be a gambling game, with proceeds augmenting those from to the World's Greatest Sporting event - The Wacky Qwacky Duck race, coming up Labor Day, September 7, 2015 - on days and hours between traffic pileups because a wayward semi turned left at the Greensburg Street entrance to the Square, couldn't make the turn at Campbellsville, and created two hours of the most pleasurable fussing and huffing about why something had to be done, and rants about "those idiots." Could be, with something sensible like the "One way sign," we'll have to stage a downtown traffic jam or lose that tradition forever. Thinking about that loss of tradition made lose me sad, and I forgot I came to the Square to get in five laps around the sidewalks - 1 mile almost exactly, before breakfast. - EW

Letter: Easton is a straight shooter

Gene Burton writes:
Easton is a straight shooter. I had never meet him until about 2-3 months ago. I had just been written a prescription for a name brand drug that I knew was expensive. I was shopping around trying to find which pharmacy was the least expensive for me to get my prescription filled. The first two I went to were within a few dollars of each other. After checking with North Century, Easton informed me that his price was also going to be within a few dollars of my other two quotes but he said "give me some time and I will see what I can do" is where his great customer service kicks in.

Says holding meeting at 8amCT is 'borderline deceitful'

Personal commentary

Carol M. Edwards writes:
The Adair County School Board held a special called meeting today for the purpose of raising taxes. In your article it was mentioned that no citizens came forth to discuss the board's proposal.

OF COURSE NO ONE CAME FORWARD. THE MEETING WAS SCHEDULED WHEN MOST PEOPLE ARE WORKING. I feel that holding the meeting at 8amCT, was borderline deceitful and see this as a thinly disguised attempt to shove a tax increase down the collective throats of Adair County taxpayers. - CAROL M EDWARDS

KY Afield Outdoors: New procedures for Harvest Information

Hunters now required to help help with survey to help U.S. Fish & Wildlife better supervise migratory waterfowl harvests along flyways.
Photo with complete article

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - Hunters possess a long history of taking actions that benefit wildlife conservation. They tax themselves and buy licenses, permits and stamps that support the vitality of both game and non-game animals.

The Harvest Information Program (H.I.P.) of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is an evolution of these long-standing practices. This year, changes to the program caused some consternation among outdoors enthusiasts who must answer a few questions after purchasing their Kentucky Migratory Game Bird- Waterfowl Hunting Permit.

Adair County School Board sets tax rate at 51.7 cents

Board leaves rates unchanged on motor vehicles, utilities, aircraft (exempt), and watercraft. Rate change will amount to $3 on average tax bill of $30,000.

By Ed Waggener

The Adair County School Board voted for a compromise tax rate which will slightly elevate receipts midway between a "compensating rate" or revenue neutral, and the maximum 4% tax increase Kentucky law allows.

The board voted, 3-1, in a special session held this morning, Thursday, August 27, 2015, at 8amCT, to set the rate at 51.7 cents per $100 of assessments, without exonerations (an increase which would have allowed to board to recover past year's losses because of exonerations. The prior rate was 50.5 cents.
The new rate will bring in about $80,000 more in revenue. It will mean an annual increase of approximately $3 on the average tax bill, Finance Officer Renae Smith said.

Before pursuing any migratory birds this season, hunters must complete the Harvest Information Program (H.I.P.) survey and obtain a confirmation number. The H.I.P. survey gives biologists better data to make more informed management decisions to keep populations of migratory birds, including doves, ducks and geese, bountiful in the future.
