Good things growing at Jim Blair Community Recreation Center

30 native trees are going in at Blair Park, and there's a reason behind each one. The Adair Garden Club is happy to explain the chain of good events that each tree begins.

By Alicia Bosela


This spring the Adair County Garden Club will assist in the planting of 30 trees at the Jim Blair Community Recreation Center. The reasons for this are varied. Some Black Locust will be planted west of the baseball field to help stabilize soil and suspend erosion. Along the north western edge of the property, some Hazelnut bushes will create edge habitat ideal for birds and other wildlife. Shumard Oak will be placed along the track and parking lot to offer shade in the years to come.

"Gardening is a conversation with time" is a nifty quote. If that is so, this conversation of trees so to speak will lead to children having a better chance to see some of the beautiful Kentucky birds in the area-killdeer, meadowlark, bluebirds, wrens, kestrels and many more.

By Doug Hogan and Anya Armes Weber

Frankfort, KY (5 Mar 2018) - The Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) is allocating additional resources to determine eligibility of financial assistance payments to certain relative and fictive kin caregivers with children placed in their home by CHFS.

An October 2017 federal court ruling by the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in the case D.O. v. Glisson requires that Kentucky must pay relatives who serve as foster parents in the same manner it pays adults who are licensed as foster parents if the CHFS Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) places the child with the relative, has conducted a home study and background checks, and if CHFS either retains custody of the child or has transferred the child from CHFS' custody to the temporary custody of the relative or fictive kin.
