KY Afield Outdoors: Float Green/Barren for Summer Smallmouth

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - Anyone who loves floating streams for smallmouth bass out of a kayak, canoe or personal pontoon boat did not enjoy last year much at all. Many areas of Kentucky set annual rainfall records in 2018.

It seemed a 3-inch rain hit every third day from spring through fall. Streams flowed raucous and so muddy it seemed you could cut the water with a knife. These conditions are the absolute pits for fishing; you are better served catching up on yardwork.

After a rough start to this year, it seems weather conditions and rainfall levels are returning to normal patterns as we come into the warmer months, the best time of year to stream fish for smallmouth bass from a paddlecraft.

The pop-up thunderstorms common in summer may spike the flow on an average stream or free flowing river, but a tailwater such as the Green River below Green River Lake or the Barren River below Barren River Lake offer more predictable flows in summer.

Carol Perkins: A Louisville Adventure with Mom

Previous column: I blame the bed

By Carol Perkins

My mother had spent the week with her sister in Louisville, and I was going to go there, take her to her doctor on Gray Street downtown Louisville, and then we were coming home. After my radio show on Tuesday, I left with plenty of time ahead of the three o'clock appointment, but I didn't allow for having to turn around near Munfordville and go back home because I had forgotten something. Off I go again, but this time with more urgency.

Fighting the traffic on I-65 in Louisville, I merged lanes like a professional trying to get 264 West and then I had to merge again to my exit. By then, I had thirty minutes to get her in the car and downtown. She was waiting on the porch, so off we went with a hearty goodbye wave to my aunt.

Once in the parking garage at Norton's, I took the first spot, which required parallel parking of which I consider myself a pro, but the back-up sensors annoyingly told me I was too close, so my mother got out to assist, which could have been a mistake since cars were whipping around that structure.

KY Organ Donation Registry surpasses the 2 million mark

Trust For Life, the charitable arm of the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks, announces a milestone for the thousands of Kentuckians waiting on lifesaving donations

Lexington, KY - During a riveting and at times emotional press conference held in Lexington on Wednesday, Trust For Life, the charitable arm of the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks, announced that the Commonwealth's Organ Donation Registry now has over two million registrants. This is a major milestone for the nonprofit and its partner organizations, all of which support the lifesaving mission of organ, eye and tissue donation and education.

"This is a monumental moment for Kentucky, and one made possible through the efforts of the caring individuals in our office and generous supporters throughout the Commonwealth," states Dennis Loy, Adair Co. Circuit Court Clerk. "Every person who says 'yes' at our office and registers as a donor offers immeasurable hope to patients on the transplant waiting list. Today, 1000 Kentucky children and adults are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Nationally, 114,000 patients wait. Tragically, each day, 22 people die waiting. It is our goal, as Circuit Clerks, to help end this wait and save and heal those in need."

Adair Magistrates submit roads for repair at May meeting

By Tiffany Kessler

Tuesday evening's special called meeting of the Adair Fiscal Court allowed the county to get its first glimpse at the 2019-2020 budget for the upcoming fiscal year beginning July 1, 2019.

During last month's meeting, the magistrates found themselves in a slightly heated debate on how to fairly distribute road funds. Dividing factors included whether money for each area should be based on amount of mileage per district, population density (ex: subdivisions), and/or the more costly maintenance of asphalt roads already in existence.
