FAKH Study: Children face more food insecurity

By Monica Ruehling

Child food insecurity rates in the service area for Feeding America, Kentucky's Heartland are higher than overall food insecurity rates.

Feeding America, Kentucky's Heartland (FAKH) announced the release of Map the Meal Gap 2019, the latest report by Feeding America(R) on food insecurity and the cost of food at both the county and congressional district level. It is the only study that provides food insecurity data at the local level.

Map the Meal Gap 2019 reveals that food insecurity exists in every county, including FAKH's service area. It also shows that children are more likely to be food insecure, with the overall percentage for children at 19%. In Adair County, the percentage is 20.7%.

Letter: Mountain Laurel in Lindsey parade floats

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Mr. Marvin Spickard engineered and designed the famous Agriculture Department Floats which appeared in the Lindsey Wilson Homecoming Parade each year. His favorite float skirt was chicken wire with broom sedge weaved in with Mountain Laurel. The Mountain Laurel came from the Knifley and Neatsville areas along the Green River and its tributaries. It was beautiful, if I do say so myself! --BJF

May 17, 1978 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

This article first appeared in the May 17, 1978 Daily Statesman, and includes memories of Fisher's Ford, E. P. Waggener's mail route, Mountain Laurel, and the river culture that was lost when Green River Lake was impounded.

Floral Display above Holmes Bend this week

From the appearance of the plants this past Saturday, there ought to be a spectacular floral display on the Laurel Cliffs above Holmes Bend this week when the mountain laurel there bursts into bloom. As far as I know, the cliffs are the only place in Adair County where mountain laurel grows. It was really pretty last year.

To get to the Laurel Cliffs from Columbia, take the Holmes Bend Road to the first gravel road to the left immediately before reaching Charity Baptist Church. The cliffs are about one and one-half miles beyond, on the right, and stretch approximately one-half mile along the roadside.

There's a good show of mountain laurel along the roadside, and an even greater one along the first road to the right as the cliff and main road diverge.

Too, there's a beautiful view of Holmes Bend from the cliffs, making a digression there well worth while.
