Recognition for connecting the schools with the people


2014-11-21 - 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo (c) ColumbiaMagazine.com.
The achievements of Shamarie Claiborne at the recent Kentucky School Board/Kentucky School Public Relations Association (STORY: Shamarie Claibornes takes six state KSBA/KSPRA awards ) were recognized again at the Adair County School Board on Thu 20 Nov 2014 by Supt. Alan Reed, reading from the Distinguished Award (top one given) for the new "Kid's Come First" graphics in the Board Room. Reed noted that Shamarie had shared the credits with others, including Reed, but said, that that was Claiborne's unselfish way, that she really deserved the credit. He said that Claiborne has given new meaning to the word "transparency," put everything the board does out in the open for public scrutiny. He said that the recipient had a quality in her writing style which distinguishes it from others. "She connects," he said. She has a way of connecting with people in a way no other person I know can."

Kentucky Afield Outdoors: Promising Waterfowl Season


Even with winds straight from the North Pole, 2015-2016 waterfowl seasons look promising

By: Lee McClellan

FRANKFORT, Ky. - The holiday commercials already swamping our collective brains along with winds straight from the North Pole remind us that short-sleeve weather is now months away. Winter is here.

Waterfowl hunters don't see these developments as bad news. They are getting their bags of decoys out of storage, cleaning and oiling shotguns and practicing their calling. Waterfowl season, for both ducks and geese, opens Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.

Waterfowl habitat across Kentucky is in good shape and the recent cold snap shouldn't greatly impact the upcoming opener. "It is dried out a little bit, we could use some more rain, but everything still looks good," said Rocky Pritchert, migratory bird program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Board Member Quin Lasley listens appreciatively


2014-11-21 - 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo (c) ColumbiaMagazine.com.
Adair County Board of Education Member Quin Lasley listened with very apparent appeciation for the report of Adair County High School dramatic progress, reports of individual achievements in the classroom and on the athletic fields, and the culture change which has deleted the phrase "That's the way we alway's did it," from its memory banks. Lasley represents the Division 2. And yes, the smile was more pronounced at the mention of her nephew, sophomore football sensation Jordan Lasley.

History: Columbia on 20 Nov 2014 in 1861

It was a good day - if there can be a good day in war - for Union Soldiers in Columbia, KY, who got four months pay, new uniforms, a Navy pistol, before the soldiers shipped out for Camp Billy Williams, at "Neetsville" on Green River in northeastern Adair County. Located on Dunnville Road.

By Eddie & Tiffany Kessler

Text taken from the book, The Wild Riders of the First Kentucky Cavalry - A History of the Regiment in the Great War of the Rebellion 1861-1865. The book is written/composed in 1894 by Sergeant E. Tarrantt, A Headquarter Clerk:
"The ten companies under command of Col. Frank Wolford, with Bramlette's regiment, were ordered to Columbia, Ky., arriving there about November 20th [1861]. There we found the Fifth Kentucky Cavalry, under Col. D.R. Haggard in course of formation, and also the Ninth Infantry, under Col. Grider.

"While the regiment was at Columbia, the Paymaster came and paid off the men for four months' service. The Navy pistol was issued to them, and the boys were now pretty well armed as Cavalry. They also drew full suits of navy blue, which enhanced the looks of the men at least fifty per cent, as many of them had been used to the plain homespun garb of their mothers' and sisters' manufacture."
It goes on to say the regiment received new orders on December 6th and left for Camp Billy Williams, near "Neetsville", on Green River. - Eddie & Tiffany Kessler

Assistant Adair County High School Principal Travis Gay, updating the Adair County School Board at its Thu 20 Nov 2014 meeting on the dramatic achievements at the High School, through Indian University and Career Pathways, said that progress is being made.

He showcased the outstanding achievement of two rising stars, seniors Shelbi Cheatham (STORY:Student spotlight: Shelbi Cheatham - proof is in achievement) , who will enter Lindsey Wilson College at a junior level, and Tyler Moore (Student Spotlight: ACHS Tech student Tyler Moore wins coveted apprenticeship), who was awarded a coveted Dr. Schneider apprentice position, and now works at the Russell Springs plant four hours a day while earning high school credit.

Ben Arnold says he'll file petition to void mayoral race

Petition will request a new election, he said

Ben Arnold, who came in second to Curtis Hardwick in the November 4, 2014, election, said in a telephone interview that he plans to file a petition through his attorney, Elmer George of Lebanon to have the results of the mayoral election nullified and for a new election to be ordered.

"It was a fatally flawed election," he said.

Arnold cited these factors:
  • Many residents of the city were denied city ballots. Some whole territories/subdivisions were not list as county voters, he said, including Bridgepoint and areas north of Russell Creek. This amounted to disenfranchisement of a significant number of citizens.
  • Some residents living outside the city limits were given city ballots
In addition, Arnold said that he believes a large number of write-in ballots were not properly tabulated because of problems with the way the machines identified the ballots with write in votes case .

Student Spotlight: ACHS Tech student Tyler Moore wins coveted apprenticeship

Technology student wins Dr.Schneider Automotive Systems, Inc. Certified Apprenticeship, beating out 44 other applicants for the coveted award.
Click on headline for story wih photo(s)

By Shamarie Claiborne, Media Coordinator
Adair County School District, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY

The good news just keeps pouring in for Adair County High School students. Junior, Tyler Moore, has been attending the Lake Cumberland Area Technology Center in Russell Springs, KY the past few years.

This past August, the Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems Inc. in Russell Springs, KY announced they would offer a Certified Apprenticeship for Injection Molding to juniors throughout the state. Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems Inc. has only one plant in the United States and it's located in our area. Convenient for Tyler since the craft of injection molding is where his interests lie. Injection molding is a specialized vocational skill that is highly sought after in many industries but predominantly in the automotive world.

When Tyler heard about the apprenticeship, he had thought it would be a great opportunity but was hesitant to apply. After more thought, he decided to go for it. He filed out the application, created a resume, and compiled the appropriate recommendations to be considered. Initially, there were 45 applicants being reviewed.

After all factors were evaluated, Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems Inc. narrowed their selection to three individuals. When Tyler received word he had made the cut he proudly went for his interview. Apparently, he shined like the rising star he is because word has arrived -- Tyler Moore is the first recipient of the Dr. Schneider Automotive Systems Inc. Certified Apprenticeship for Injection Molding in the State of Kentucky.

Tyler has been on cloud nine since receiving word of his apprenticeship. When I asked him what he wanted others to know about his accomplishment he stated "It is a great opportunity, one I am truly grateful for. At first I didn't want to apply because I thought I didn't have a chance. But now, my suggestion to all the juniors who qualify is to apply next year. You never know, you may get it - I did!" Tyler is really a neat kid with a great future in front of him.

The Adair Co. Schools wish Tyler the best of luck as he starts his apprenticeship. We also encourage him to learn all he can, from the skilled tradesmen who will be teaching him this year. What a great honor. Shamarie Claiborne
