Azaleas worth the drive


2021-05-15 - Adair Co., KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag.
George writes, "It's worth a drive around Columbia just to see this year's crop of azaleas! I've never seen the bushes as full and colorful as they are this year. And because of the cool but sunny weather interrupted by just the right amount of rain, they seemed to last longer this year."

Gracie Parrott earns MSC Freshman of the Year honor

Bowling Green, KY - After getting her true freshman season shortened by the COVID-19 outbreak, Campbellsville University women's golfer Gracie Parrott was named the Mid-South Conference Freshman of the Year following her win at the Mid-South Conference Championship last Friday afternoon. Parrott, a Greensburg, KY, native, is the daughter of Walt and Deana Coffey-Parrott, and the granddaughter of Adair County Magistrate, Billy D. Coffey.

Parrott shot the lone under par score in the three-round tournament with rounds of 69 (-3), 74 (+2), and 71 (-1) to finish at 214 (-2). That 214 was 10 strokes better than the second place finisher as Parrott was able to cruise to the victory and clinch the Freshman of the Year honor.

That honor is the first for CU since Cassidy Scantland also did so the year she won the MSC Championship in 2013-14. The honor takes into account the three tournaments hosted by the conference in the Fall and Spring Invites.

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 5/14/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

We added 196 new cases this week compared to 184 last week. So, our several weeks' trend of increasing cases continues. On the upside, over the last few days, our new cases have been less than for the same time period the week prior. Hopefully, next week this will continue, and we will have a week of fewer new cases. We had 1 death that occurred over the last 7 days. We have 168 active cases today compared to 156 last Friday. We have 12 hospitalized cases compared with 9 last Friday. Our 7-day average incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 today for our district is 13.37 today, last Friday, 12.55.

Today, our 7-day average incidence rate of new cases per 1000,000 chart is showing only 5 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Russell, and Wayne; 4 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Casey, McCreary, Pulaski, and Taylor; and 1 county in the "red-critical" range, Adair.

We are still experiencing a higher average of new cases per week than the state as a whole. This is to be expected since our COVID-19 vaccine uptake rate is lower than the state average in all 10 of our district's 10 counties.

Our citizens need to take the vaccine, which is safe and very effective. Of our 8,141 new cases since the vaccine started becoming available, almost 99% of them had not taken any doses of the vaccine.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 3%.

DOR: Tax extensions for flood victims in Casey, Cumberland

By Jill Midkiff

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Department of Revenue (DOR) will honor the recently announced IRS special tax relief for taxpayers in any area designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as qualifying for individual assistance due to the effects of severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides in Kentucky that began February 27, 2021.

Under the provisions of KRS 131.081 (11), Kentucky honors federal extensions related to disaster relief for filing of income tax returns, including payment of tax due. This extension to file and pay taxes does not apply to sales tax and other type of taxes. However, taxpayers with disaster-related delays that are seeking filing extensions or that have been assessed penalties for taxes other than income may contact the DOR to request an extension or a waiver of penalties.

Individuals and households affected by severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides that reside or have a business in Bell, Boyd, Breathitt, Calloway, Carter, Casey, Clark, Clay, Cumberland, Edmonson, Elliott, Estill, Floyd, Franklin, Graves, Harlan, Jackson, Johnson, Knott, Knox, Lawrence, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Lincoln, Magoffin, Marion, Martin, Mason, Menifee, Morgan, Ohio, Owsley, Perry, Pike, Powell, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Union, Whitley, and Wolfe counties qualify for tax relief.

KSP investigates fatal collision in Adair Co.

By Trooper Jonathan Houk

Kentucky State Police Post 15 troopers responded to a two-vehicle collision in Adair County on Thursday morning, May 13, 2021 at approximately 10:16amCT. KSP Post 15 was requested to investigate a two-vehicle fatal collision on KY 92 approximately 8 miles east of Columbia.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Michael Scott, age 26 of Columbia, was traveling west on KY 92 in a 1995 GMC Sierra truck. Mimi Bairstow, age 87 of Glens Fork, was traveling east on KY 92 in a 2006 Ford Explorer passenger car. Scott's vehicle and Bairstow's vehicle collided head on at the centerline of the roadway.

Bairstow was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Adair County Coroner's Office. Scott was airlifted and transported to University of Kentucky hospital in Lexington with life-threatening injuries.

A portion of KY 92 was closed for several hours to allow troopers to reconstruct the collision.

KSP Post 15 was assisted at the scene by the Adair County Sheriff's Office, Adair County EMS, Columbia/Adair County Fire Department, Kentucky State Highway Department, and the Adair County Coroner's Office. The collision is still under investigation by Sergeant Adam Likins.

Deborah Hensley retires from Adair Middle School

Mrs. Deborah Hensley is the last teacher retiring at Adair County Middle School this year. Her career highlights are below. We give her our congratulations and best wishes! - Deb Waddell

By Deborah Hensley

Teaching students for 28 years at the middle school level has been a great job to look forward to daily. Each day is different. Each class period is different. Each individual is unique, and all these make for a wonderful challenging day.

I began my career teaching science at Adair County Middle School in the "old high school" (my alma mater). At that time, one hallway was used by 8th grade, and the rest of the building was closed off due to needed repairs. My students were bussed daily to the high school for lunch.

Final capacity limits to end June 11

Vaccine effectiveness, expanded eligibility allows for easing of restrictions

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - On Friday, May 14, 2021, Gov. Andy Beshear said the state's emerging economy is set for liftoff as final capacity restrictions related to COVID-19 will end Friday, June 11.

Gov. Beshear said the proven effectiveness of vaccinations and expanded vaccine eligibility to include 12- to 15-year-olds is allowing the commonwealth to safely and sustainably ease restrictions. With about 1.9 million Kentuckians vaccinated, the Governor said everyone who is eligible should be able to get a dose of a safe and effective vaccine ahead of June 11.

"After a long, dark pandemic - more of our people have gotten their shot of hope, and we have steadily moved to lift the last remaining restrictions put in place to slow the spread of this dangerous virus and save lives," said Gov. Beshear. "Team Kentucky: your patience, hard work and sacrifices have paid off. For those not vaccinated: you have still have time."

The Governor said a review of COVID-19 data from the period when many Kentuckians were vaccinated, this March and April, proves the effectiveness of vaccines. Over the two months, total cases declined 18%; hospitalizations declined 19% and deaths declined 48%.

In addition to setting the June 11 date for lifting all capacity restrictions, the Governor said Thursday the commonwealth would immediately follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendation that fully vaccinated Kentuckians no longer need to wear a mask in most places.

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 5/13/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Unfortunately, due to our high numbers of new cases of late, we now have 0 counties in the "green-on-track" range, and 1 county back in the "red-critical" range. Now, our 7-day average incidence rate of new cases per 1000,000 chart is showing only 5 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Russell, and Wayne; 4 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Casey, McCreary, Pulaski, and Taylor; and 1 county in the "red-critical" range, Adair.

We are able, however, to report fewer new cases today than for the same time period last week so our districtwide 7-day-average-incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 went down slightly. There are still a high number of new cases per day in our district and this is not surprising since our COVID-19 vaccine uptake rate is lower than the state average in all 10 of our district's 10 counties. Our citizens need to take the vaccine, which is safe and very effective. Of our 18,110 new cases since the vaccine started becoming available, almost 99% of them had not taken any doses of the vaccine. The statistics are even better for those who have been fully vaccinated.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 3.04%.

By Kyle Jackson

Connor Robinson is set to join the Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team for the 2021-22 season, head coach Chris Starks announced on Friday.

Robinson is a 6'3 guard, four-year letterman from Clay County High School in Kentucky. He averaged 24 points per game in his senior year and finished in the top five of all-time scorers in Clay County High School history accumulating over 2,070 total points during his high school career.

"Connor is exactly what I was looking for in terms of building for the future with our freshman class," said Coach Starks. "Outside of him being a tremendous student in the classroom, he is a tough-nosed competitor and has a true passion to play the game that can really score the basketball in a variety of ways."
