Phillip Coffey - Sawed Down

Sawed Down by Phillip Coffey

"Never in the history of motion pictures has the calvary ever been late"
Or so they said on a "Three Stooges" film clip seen by my two cousins And me.
Now all the character actors are gone- lying down under the ground.

Don't recall when or why we did it but we notched it all on a very small Maple tree, my two cousins and I.
Took off a day of riding our horses along the ridges and in some spring hollers.

Poetry: Springtime by Miss Winston

From Vonnie Kolbenschlag

Noma Dix Winston, professor at LWC some time ago, was a history professor and she also wrote poetry. I found this one of hers just right for the season of Spring, I think.
Springtime
The clouds are big and bouncy,
The wind is like a wing,
The smoke is light and flouncy,
There's a jump in everything.
The ground is like elastic,
The birds are capering.
I think I know the reason,
Folks call this season SPRING!!!

Letter: Lack of payroll tax should be a source of pride

Kevin Knifley writes:
First of all the fact that Adair is one of 10 KY Counties that doesn't have a County payroll tax should be a source of pride, although I'd imagine the City residents feel like it's unfair that they're taxed while County ones aren't.

If CJE Bryant wants to improve the lives of our County residents how about leaving our paychecks alone and Mayor Hoots and the City Council follow suit.

Tax or no tax - the question of the week in Adair

The talk this week has been around whether or not to examine a payroll tax to improve lives of Adair Countians. County Judge Executive Larry Russell Bryant has placed the issue on the table and challenged the Magistrates to give it their full consideration - or to provide options as to how to raise funds for the county government.

He has researched all the surrounding counties as well as those in the state - Adair is one of only ten county governments in the state that does not have a payroll tax in place.

General Fund and Road Fund receipts for February 2023

From John Hicks/Greg Harkenrider

Frankfort, KY - The Office of State Budget Director reported on Thursday, March 9, 2023, that February's General Fund receipts rose 11.4 percent compared to February of last year. Collections for the month were $1,078.1 million, the largest February receipt total on record. Receipts have now grown 6.4 percent in the first eight months of FY23. Among the major accounts, all had increases over last February except for the individual income tax, which had a small decline due to earlier tax refund processing. Sales tax receipts led the way with the largest increase.

The official General Fund revenue estimate, which was revised upward by $1.4 billion, calls for 3.4 percent revenue growth in FY23. To meet the official revenue estimate, receipts can fall 1.7 percent over the last four months of the fiscal year.
