Letter: At Coleman Barracks

Kenny Davis writes:
I was in a movie theatre at Coleman Barracks near Mannheim, Germany. It was around 8 pm German time. They interrupted the movie and told us to report back to our Barracks. We were placed on alert and as I was in a tank battalion we loaded up and left the base for our field positions. I don't remember how long we stayed in the field, but it seemed like only a few days.

At that time I was scheduled to remain in Germany until my discharge in August 1965, but with the new chain of command my whole outfit returned to the US and was attached to the 82nd Airborne in Fort Bragg, NC in spring of 1964. This was good news for me for I was getting homesick for the US.

Coleman requests additional federal funding for education

By JT Henderson

Frankfort, KY - Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman, who is also the secretary of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, sent a letter July 9 to Betsy DeVos, the secretary of the U.S. Department of Education, requesting an additional round of CARES Act funding from the federal government that would include money to reopen Kentucky schools safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lt. Gov. Coleman also requested flexibility in the way the CARES Act funds can be used throughout the P-20 educational system according to the needs of each community.

"While some districts may resume in-person classes creating the need for increased PPE and transportation funding, other districts may choose a distance learning model that requires funding for increased technology and broadband," Lt. Gov. Coleman wrote in the letter to Sec. DeVos.

Varmints A-plenty, Once Upon A Time

By Mike Watson

When this Kentucky land we call home was new to the pioneers, it was replete with wild game of all types. Varmints, by definition of the Blue Ribbon Bear Board, were everywhere. One worrisome wild animal to the early settlers was the wolf. They were identified as the grey wolf, though I have not delved into the true classification.

There were many instances of livestock being killed by wolves, and the eventual killing off of large numbers can be proved with the public records of the early 1800s.

All types of livestock were kept penned up for their own safety and that of the human inhabitants who depended upon them. Cattle and hogs were generally allowed to forage for food, and thus were let loose until threatened by incursions, real or imagined. Sheep, chickens, and other small animals were the general targets of the wolf.

Adair County began business as such in 1802, having been formed by the General Assembly the previous year, entirely from Green County. The first orders of business were setting up county government and swearing in appointed officials.

Close behind was more mundane, but important, business. One issue was the eradication of the wolf in the rapidly growing settled areas.

Letter: would help to have list of food delivery services

Gena Grider writes:
As someone who is on quarantine myself, I can say it makes it difficult to not be able to go to the store, get supplies or even food.

I have a hard time being able to cook and as such rely heavily on area restaurants. But now most of them have stopped delivering. If there was a way to list services that would be willing to deliver for people who are stuck at home for 2 weeks, I think more people would admit coming into contact with a positive case.

Since everything has opened back up there aren't many who could afford to quarantine. That could be an area they could focus on if they want people to comply.

Also making testing mandatory at the end of the 2 weeks before they are released off of quarantine, I believe, would catch a lot of asymptomatic cases. - Gena
