GSA Troop #896 - Pop Tab Collection for Ronald McDonald house


2017-03-24 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Annita Barnett. In observance of the 105th birthday of Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA), local Girl Scout Troop #896 has been collecting pop tabs to donate to the Ronald McDonald House (RMH). Two members of the troop, Brayleigh and Braylynn Hargrove, spent several weeks in the hospital when they were first born. The Hargroves' parents, Brian and Brandy, benefited greatly by usage of the Ronald McDonald Hospital in Cincinnati. The pop tabs will be delivered the first week in April. If anyone would like to donate pop tabs they may do so by dropping them off at Hwy 551 Scrap Yard or by calling 270-634-0709 and someone will pick them up. The girls each received a box of their favorite Girl Scout Cookies for their hard work. Troop members pictured are Laramie Baldwin, Mariah Kelsay, Pixie Dial, Courtney Henson, McKinlee Stone, Kantlee Harvey, Brayleigh Hargrove, Braylynn Hargrove, Malloree Kimbler, Keitha Lee, Katie Ploss, and tagalong Maylee Stone. Halie Jeffries and Kelsey Wiley are not pictured. - Annita Barnett

Rollin Knifley: Differs with writer on largest military installation

Rollin Knifley writes:
I think Mr. Halsey is mistaken about Ft Knox being the largest military installation in the United States. At 109,000 acres, it is the largest in KY. Ft Campbell has about 102,000 acres, but most of that is actually in Tennessee. White Sands Missile Range is the largest military installation in the US at just under 3200 square miles.

KY Afield Outdoors: Spring wild turkey season preview

By Kevin Kelly

Frankfort, KY - Spring turkey hunting is slipping into position before daybreak and sitting still as the sun eases over the hills.

It is breaking the silence with a call and getting a response that sends a shock of excitement down your spine. It is coaxing a love-struck gobbler closer and keeping your wits as it struts into range.

"There's something about that drumming, spitting, gobbling turkey in front of you that makes the ground shake," said Jason Lupardus, Midwest Conservation Field Supervisor with the National Wild Turkey Federation who has regional biologist duties in Kentucky. "I live for those moments. Favorite time of year, by far. You can't beat it."

By Wes Feese
Media Relations, Adair County Schools

Music programs across the country are celebrating National Music in Our Schools Month this March and both Adair County Primary Center and Adair County Elementary School are getting in on the action with a wide array of special performances and activities. At ACPC, almost 30 students undertook an out-of-class, take-home project this week, with a goal of building homemade musical instruments.

"I love this activity because there is so much creativity involved," says ACPC music teacher Laura Marcum. "We find that different materials make different sounds as well as items of different sizes. It's also a great time to make a science connection and talk about vibrations and how sound travels."
