Kentucky Color: Low Hanging Mid-Autumn Clouds



2019-10-30 - Adair Co., KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge.
Wheeler Hill Pass carried motorists bound for all points South on the Chattanooga Highway up and into low hanging, mid-Autumn clouds on Wednesday morning, October 30th.

Highway 61 climbs more than 400 feet from where it crosses Petitts' Fork of Russell Creek outside of Columbia up into the Highlands. The Highlands are the South Central Kentucky Divide between the Cumberland River and Green River Watersheds and almost always causes variations of temperature and moisture during all seasons of the year.

Inaugural summit aims to tackle senior hunger in Kentucky

By Christina Dettman/Julianne Hatton

Frankfort, KY - The Commonwealth of Kentucky's Department for Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) held its inaugural Kentucky Senior Hunger Summit today in Frankfort.

The event connected community partners in finding real solutions to issues surrounding senior food insecurity.

"There is no reason anyone in our state should go hungry. Whether it's a child or an older adult or anywhere between. We have the resources - it's a matter of raising awareness of the issue and communicating across systems to ensure food gets on the tables of those who need it most," said Shannon Gadd, Commissioner for DAIL.

Nearly 5 million older adults currently face hunger in the United States. In Kentucky, 16.6% of the 60+ population suffer from food insecurity, a 10% increase over the last four years.

Designate a driver for Halloween

By Erin G. Eggen

Frankfort, KY - This Halloween, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) is partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to remind partiers that "Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving".

"This year, Halloween falls on a Thursday, so we're certain to see extra parties throughout the weekend," said KOHS Acting Executive Director Jason Siwula. "Even one drink can impair judgement, so we're simply asking all partygoers to plan their sober ride home in advance, before decision-making abilities are affected."

According to NHTSA, from 2013 to 2017, 42 percent of all people killed in motor vehicle crashes on Halloween night were in crashes involving a drunken driver. Younger drivers are most at risk. Even though it is illegal to consume alcohol under age 21, those under the age of 21 had the highest percentage (45 percent) of fatalities in drunken-driving crashes on Halloween night in 2017.

Carol Perkins: Susan and I have a new book

Previous column: Callers are like family

By Carol Perkins

Ms. Margaret Vibbert recalled when she and her classmates flew out the schoolhouse door to see the first airplane go over. Edaline Hope recalled walking to church on dark nights with her father leading the way, carrying a lantern. "He would look back to make sure we girls were all following closely." My mother, Marguerite Sullivan, described the cold winters while teaching in a one-room school and Christmas programs. Edgar Martin remembers waking up with snow on his bed. "My brothers and I swept it up before it turned to water and went through the floor." Willard Parnell laughed about the time he and his friends skipped school, made their own wooden ice skates, skated on a frozen pond all day, and ended up with an old-fashioned whipping. Margaret Reece told about leaving her warm home in Louisville to marry and move to a house where she could look through the cracks and see the chickens.

What all of these have in common is that each person ranges from age ninety-two to one hundred and one (Ms. Vibbert), and Susan Chambers and I interviewed them for our new book, Winter Tales: Metcalfe.

We also talked with those of all ages to capture the feel of wintertime in our community (and all small communities). A companion to our first book, Edmonton (1940-2018), Winter Tales is a social and emotional history filled with humor, picturesque details, and anecdotes.

Watch out for goblins at the gas pump

KDA has caught 33 skimmers since inspections began in 2016

By Sean Southard

Frankfort, KY - This Halloween week, Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles warns Kentuckians to beware of goblins at the gas pump as criminals try to steal sensitive credit card information from Kentuckians.

"During this spooky time, Kentuckians should not only look out for gremlins and ghosts, but beware of goblins at the gas pump who try to steal thousands of dollars from Kentuckians each and every day," Commissioner Quarles said. "The Kentucky Department of Agriculture is committed, now more than ever, to supporting law enforcement in its efforts to reduce credit card theft and place criminal elements behind bars."

Under state law, motor fuel pumps must be inspected by KDA personnel once a year. Inspectors test pumps to ensure that the amount of fuel dispensed matches the amount shown on the pump and check to make sure each pump is in proper working order. In 2016, KDA began inspecting for credit card skimmers.
