Comment: Good to remember best phase of Russell Bldg.

On the Lerman's building:
Oh, the dreams that have been dreamed around this building over the years! It's so good to see it in its best phase with retail sales on the ground floor, offices on the second and what looks like living spaces. My dream is that there will be money and time to restore it. That possibility is fading pretty fast as it deteriorates! --Linda Waggener

Letter: Was Russell Building named for a local person?

Alice writes:
Was J O Russell a local or was it a company? I remember of a Dr Russell in town. Could that be the same person? I love our history. --Alice
Comments re photo 84000 Russell and Company Buliding when new

Alice, thanks for writing. Mr. Russell was an important Adair County figure. He's been portrayed by Richard Phelps in the Silent City programs: Mr. Richard Phelps as J.O. Russell (1856-1928).

Gov. signs HB158, Foster Child Bill of Rights

By Christina Dettman/Jordan Rowe

Frankfort, KY - Governor Matt Bevin ceremonially signed House Bill 158 into law this week at the Kentucky State Capitol. The law, in part, lays out 16 specific rights for children in care, including adequate food, clothing, and shelter, as well as a safe, secure, and stable family.

House Bill 158 also removes some barriers for potential adoptive families. Other provisions include background checks on child residential home staff as required under federal law and clarifying rules for the putative father registry.

"We felt it was time to elevate these rights and codify them in state statute through an act of the Kentucky General Assembly so that these youth will have one statute to go to, so they know what their rights are each and every day," said Eric Clark, Commissioner of the Department for Community Based Services.

Commentary: A Little Hemp History This Hemp History Week

By Ryan Quarles
Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture

Frankfort, KY - George Washington. Thomas Jefferson. Henry Clay. These great Americans grew hemp in the United States long before it became illegal over much of the 20th century. This year, Kentucky has around 1,000 licensed hemp growers and more than 130 licensed hemp processors who are joining the ranks of the great Americans who have grown hemp. This Hemp History Week, it's important to remember where our state has been and where we are headed with this crop that connects Kentucky's past to its future.

In 2013, Kentucky restarted the conversation about the legalization of hemp nationwide. But the hemp renaissance really caught fire when Congress passed the 2014 Farm Bill allowing states a chance to bring this crop back from the dead through research pilot programs.

Flash flood watch through Sunday, today's high 77F

It's currently 68F at the Adair County Mesonet station. The National Weather Service is advising that flash flooding is possible across Central Kentucky this weekend, and has issued a flash flood watch through Sunday evening.

A slow moving upper level low pressure system combined with tropical moisture will result in widespread shower and thunderstorm activity today through the upcoming weekend. Steering currents in the atmosphere are expected to be rather weak and any thunderstorm will move very slowly and will be able to produce a lot of rainfall in a short period of time. Total rainfall amounts of 2-3 inches are expected across the region. However, localized amounts of 4-6 inches will be possible which will lead to flash flooding in some spots.

Expect showers today, with thunderstorms also possible after 8amCT. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. High near 77F, with northeast wind 5 to 9 mph. The chance of precipitation is 80%, with new rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.

Showers remain likely tonight, and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Cloudy, with a low around 67F, and northeast wind 8 to 10 mph. The chance of precipitation overnight is 60%.

There is a 90% change of showers again Saturday, continuing through Saturday night, with the possibility of a thunderstorm developing. Saturday's high should be near 79F. East wind around 9 mph.
