Kids are talking more and adults are listening

At this meeting, in addition to the report on the needs assessment, a reminder was given of the Saturday, March 17, 2018 Farm Home and Garden Expo at Adair County Elementary School, 870 Indian Drive, Columbia, KY. Special activities of the day for young folks include 4-H cupcake wars, free meals, demonstrations and youth activities.

By Linda Waggener

Challenges identified include needs for keeping kids drug free, stopping bullying, more mentoring, community centers and self-defense training.

At our request, Anita Rees wrote this follow-up
As I drove up the cows were walking across the road then took off when I got closer. I snapped the pic thru my (dirty) car window and enlarged it. Never found their owner... however, I did find lots of people in this area who don't own them. I hope they're contained by now... if not they're probably in the next county. - Anita Rees
