Letter: Buffalo or Bison

Maury Lewis writes:
There used to be a large herd on Weed Sparksville Road in Adair County. The owner got gored by one of the bulls so I don't know if they still have them.

They also had a restaurant and they sold Buffalo burgers on Greensburg street in Columbia. The burger were great but I personally like the Elk burgers best. --melewi

Sen. Max Wise's Legislative Update - February 14, 2020

Personal political commentary/opinions of the writer

By State Senator Max Wise, (R-Campbellsville)
16th District: Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, McCreary, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne Counties

As the Senate eagerly awaits a budget proposal from the House of Representatives, we remain busy in Frankfort passing bills both out of committee and out of the Senate to send to our colleagues in the lower chamber during a rainy sixth week of the 2020 Regular Session.

The Governor has already signed a couple of House Bills (HB) into law. HB 236 incorporates federal United States Department of Agriculture guidelines related to hemp into the Kentucky statute. It establishes hemp testing procedures for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and opens up private market testing to help address a backlog of hemp products. This bill benefits our agriculture industry and Kentucky hemp farmers. HB 186 eliminates potentially costly requirements for the more than 171,000 Kentuckians who operate direct sale or multi-level marketing businesses.

Main topics of discussion this week included measures relating to students, health care, and the overall well-being of Kentuckians.

Student Winners in Make a Difference contest

By Deb Waddell

The Kentucky Education Association (KEA) hosts a special contest each year recognizing school employees that Make A DIFFERENCE in a student's life. Locally, the Adair County Education Associate (ACEA) encourages students to participate in this event. Students produce an image of someone, in a creative way, that has meant something special to them at school.

Each student who participates gets their artwork mailed to KEA in Frankfort. In March the tunnel between the main capitol building and the annex building is covered with all of this amazing art. Locally, ACEA awards $25 to a student on each campus who is considered to have shown the best artistic rendition.

Two campuses participated this year. At ACES, Jace Partin won with a picture of Mr. Curry and at ACMS, Bella Blackaby won with a picture of Mr. Bryant. Congrats to these students!
