Remembering Miss Winston

By Mike Watson

Thank you Vonnie Kolbenschlag for sharing the wonderful poem by Miss Noma Dix Winston. It has more meaning to me each time I read it, and as another has stated, when read aloud it seems to take on more dramatic prominence, more meaning.

In addition, I have thoroughly enjoyed all the stories and laudatory comments on Miss Winston, and her worthwhile contributions to American History and her guidance of many student minds, as well as her forays into the literary realm. I only regret I did not arrive on Lindsey Wilson Hill before her retirement. Thus, I missed her instruction in the classroom. However, I did receive her guidance in other ways through our interactions in several arenas for the remainder of her life here in Columbia.

By Sean Southard

Frankfort, KY - Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles is encouraging Kentucky farm families facing market disruptions and associated costs because of the coronavirus pandemic to sign up for the second round of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), which opened on September 21, 2020, and will run through December 11, 2020.

Customers seeking one-on-one support with the CFAP 2 application process can call 877-508-8364 to speak directly with a USDA employee ready to offer assistance. This is a recommended first step before a producer engages with the team at a Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office.

Adair Co. Property Taxes bills to mail out Sept 30, 2020

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

We would like to remind everyone to consider mailing in your tax bill instead of in-person payment. This is a very busy time of the year for our office and this will help cut down on the amount of people we have in the lobby area due to Covid-19.

If you do choose to come in and pay, please wear a mask as it is required by the Adair County Fiscal Court for entry into the building.

Have your tax payment ready when you get here, this will cut down on time at window and move the line along faster. This will also reduce the number of people we have in the lobby standing.

We will be cleaning on a routine schedule throughout the day but once again we encourage the use of the mail for tax payments.

The following apply to your Adair County Tax Rate:
  • Paid between October 1 and November 1, 2020, you will receive a 2 percent discount.
  • Paid between November 2 and December 31, 2020, you will owe the face amount of bill.
  • Paid January 1, 2021 to January 31, 2021, a 5 percent penalty is added.
  • Paid February 1, 2021, to April 15, 2021, a 10 percent penalty is added in addition to a 10 percent add-on.

Kentucky Color: Dogwood Drupes Hanging Red

By Billy Joe Fudge
Shortened days and foggy morns
Announce Summer's end it's said,
But nothing signals Autumn near
Like Dogwood drupes hanging red.

September squirrels rain Hickory nuts
Down upon the hunter's head,
But nothing signals Autumn near
Like Dogwood drupes hanging red.

Smells from kitchens old and new
Mean apple pies and pumpkin bread,
But nothing signals Autumn near
Like Dogwood drupes hanging red.

We see the trees begin to change
And Poplar crowns soon to shed,
But nothing signals Autumn near,
Like Dogwood drupes, hanging red.
