Log jam - strainer on Russell Creek pushing against bridge -Whose responsibilty?

From a Kayaker: "There is a big log jam at the 206 bridge over Russell Creek in Columbia, KY. Itís pushing on the bridge... City, County or State needs to get it out." - Mitzi Bault

As a City Council Member, all kinds of concerns come up needing to be addressed for the good of all and research happens to find answers. Recently the focus has been on sidewalks and roadsides for our citizens who travel on foot and on bicycles, but this is just one more means of travel so it deserves attention. Which area of our government has the responsibility, personnel and equipment to remove a huge log jam from beneath a major bridge? I'll be asking questions and inviting discussion. For the safety of the highly traveled Liberty Road bridge, and for our travelers on the water, I agree this needs to be a priority. - Linda Waggener

From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky

BOWLING GREEN, KY (Mon 23 Apr 2018) - A Franklin, Kentucky, physician was convicted today on 15 counts of illegal distribution of controlled substances by way of prescribing opiate pain medications outside of the course of professional medical practice and without a legitimate medial purpose, announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman.

"Kentucky families rely on our doctors to 'do no harm,' however, in this case, a Western Kentucky doctor was no more than a drug dealer in a white coat," stated United States Attorney Russell Coleman. "As much as we respect the medical profession, this is a warning to physicians who purposefully overprescribe pain pills without a legitimate medical purpose - you will lose your medical license and ultimately serve time in federal prison."

(Ad) Dallas Luttrell candidate for Adair County Sheriff - II


2018-04-23 - Adair County, KY - Photo - Campaign photo.
I am working to meet you all before the election, but here's a reminder, just in case

To the voters of Adair County, KY

I have met many of you but I realize it is going to be physically impossible to personally meet and visit every voter of the County. For those I haven't met yet, I want to introduce myself. I am Dallas Luttrell. I was born in Adair County to Marvin and Mamie (Hardwick) Luttrell, my grandparents are the deceased James and Alta (Foley) Luttrell and Mont and Mary Liz (Goodin) Hardwick. My first real job was here in Columbia working for Waggener-Walker newspapers when I was 16 years old.

I was raised in Indiana and spent a large part of my adult life in Arizona where I served as a Deputy Sheriff and as a Trooper with the Arizona Department of Public Safety. I retired as a Sergeant II.

My family and I moved back to my roots after my son-in-law was medically retired from the US Army due to combat injuries suffered in Afghanistan.

Currently I am the Director of the Kentucky State Parks Ranger Division; I hold the rank of Colonel. I oversee law enforcement operations in all Kentucky State Parks. I am honored to hold this position and am the first Colonel in the Agencies history to start at the entry level position of Ranger and work up to the highest position.

I decided to run for Sheriff not for economic gain, not for political aspirations but for the sincere desire to make Adair County a better place to live for all our future generations.

For a detail list of my training, education and experience follow me on Facebook at Dallas Luttrell for Adair County Sheriff.

I would be honored to serve as the Sheriff for all of Adair County.

Paid for by Dallas Luttrell for Adair County Sheriff

Dean Robbie Harmon went over the latest revision to the Adair County School District Calendar, with one addition to the revised March 23, 2018 calendar as posted with a link each school day with ColumbiaMagazine.com's school menu: That addition is that May 25, 2018, the closing day for staff, is also Graduation Day. He gave the report with a stern warning to the weatherman and David Jones, the Director of Student Transportation, not to do anything to change this latest calendar revision.

By George Kolbenschlag

There were lots of "whoas," "gees" and "haws" at the Homeplace on Green River at Saturday's (April 21, 2018) plow day/spring festival.

"Whoa, look at that," "Gee, I've never seen one of those before," and "Haw! See I told you the kids would have a ball here." And, of course, as occasional commands for the 15 horse and mule plow teams, too.

A record crowd of about 2,500 people enjoyed the fine weather and many activities at the plow day/festival.
