Educational meeting about alpha-gal syndrome 9 Oct 2018

By Nick Roy

A growing number of Adair County citizens have been diagnosed with alpha-gal syndrome, a food allergy to red meat. Alpha-gal is most usually a result of being bitten by a Lone Star tick which is often found in Adair County. In areas of the country where lone star ticks are common, up to 20% of the people have tested positive for this antibody. This can trigger a mild to severe immune system reaction when they eat red meat. There is no treatment other than avoiding red meat.

As the number of cases have grown in Adair County, it becomes more important that citizens and health care professionals become more familiar with the threats posed by Lone Star ticks and common symptoms observed as a result of their bite.

To bring awareness of Lone Star ticks and alpha-gal, an educational meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 9th at 6pmCT at the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service, 409 Fairground St., Columbia, KY.

Letter: Thoughts of Ed

Melissa Gail Rexroat writes:
I want to comment on the passing of Ed. A wonderful man and newspaper man. He always followed up with my letters. With the tornado that passed thru Damron Creek Rd and North 127 a few years ago, to the 2012 tornado in Clark Co, Indiana. to the overturned truck I was behind on a trip back to Indiana home from Russell Springs, KY.

Ed was the best in his field and I am so so honored to even to have gotten to speak to him. He was so kind and such a good person, God bless his soul, and his family the Waggeners, they are in my heart and prayers. God bless always. Melissa and James from Webbs Crossroads in Russell Springs, KY (living in southern Jeffersonville, IN at present time). Thank you Ed for being a part of our lives. --Melissa Gail Rexroat

Farm Safety Day at the Adair County Primary Center

By Laura Marcum

Every year in the U.S., Kentucky, and even in Adair County there are youth that are injured or even killed in home or farming accidents. Every year farming ranks first or second in the most dangerous jobs. Now, more and more, young people are having to help out on the farm and at home and this will increase the chances of a young person getting injured.

A Progressive Farmer Safety Day was planned for all 1st grade students at ACPC. On September 18, 2018, The Adair County Extension Service and the Adair County School System in conjunction with Progressive Agriculture Foundation hosted this event. It took place at the Adair FFA Barn on the High School Campus.

Through hands-on activities, participants learned how to prevent farm and home accidents and how to reduce the extent of injuries if accidents do occur. Topics of the day included safety on or around tractors, livestock, and ATVs. Scheduled speakers and interactive demonstrations reinforced the importance of children taking responsibility for their own safety, respecting parents safety rules and sharing safety tips with their family and friends.

Special thanks to the Adair Co. Extension Agency and the ACPC Family Resource Center for helping host this event for us.

By Alice Curry
Technology Teacher & STC, Adair County Elementary School

After listening to the book Mechanimals, students created a model of animal using scrap materials. Their animal had to include at least some metal, and had to be able to meet its basic survival needs (food, shelter, oxygen, shelter.) This was the culminating assessment for our study of organism structure/function.

They had a week to work on it at home, and one day to work at school. They presented their topics on Thursday, September 20. "I was BLOWN AWAY by their amazing responses," said Mrs. Godsey.

This week's spotlight is on preparing household pets and animals for disasters and emergencies.

"If you are like the many animal owners in Kentucky today, your pet is an important member of your household and the best way to protect your pet from the stress and disruption of an emergency is to have a disaster pet kit and a plan that includes whether you will stay at home or evacuate during an emergency event," said Dr. Kelly Giesbrecht, state veterinarian for public health. "Being ready increases the likelihood of survival for all involved and reduces stress and worry for both pets and their owners."

Planning for emergency preparedness measures for household pets and animals should take into consideration the following precautions to include:
