Showdown opponents stage make up: United they Stand

2015-04-28 - Adair Annex Basement, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
After a lively political showdown at the Wednesday April 22, 2015 Adair County Board of Elections meeting, Hunter Durham and Larry Smith staged this show of friendship at the latest meeting of the Adair County Board of Elections, yesterday afternoon. While was not present at the famous first debate, we have learned that one of the gentlemen is a staunch Eisenhower Republican, the other a known Democrat. The latter hammered away at his rival, demanding to know what part of peace and prosperity he didn't like, and what part of the record stock market he was against. The other shot back that he liked Happy Chandler and was open minded, though he did question where Franklin Delano Roosevelt stood in relation to God. Or so they told me. (One of the impartial observers, CJE Mike Stephens, vouched for some of this imformation.) In the background, three members of the Adair County Board of Elections, Billy Curry (R), Sheriff Harrison Moss, and Ben Loy (d) answered media questions. - ED WAGGENER (Unbiased Democrat)

Letter: Problem with election worker

Mitzi Bault writes:
I have a problem with one worker who has worked several years where I vote. The first time I used the little flat table top computer. There were two. I was at one and a worker was showing a little lady how to use it. She said to the helper " I do not know about these." She pointed to the bottom of the page. The worker pointed and said, "This one and this one are good ones."

This same worker tried to go in the the booth with my Mom one year. My little Mom let him know, "She did not need his help."

At this years election, I was given my paper and I went the last row of tables on the back left side. No one was a round me. You know that fealing someone is watching you? I looked around and this person was behind me looking over my shoulder. I got up to take my paper to the scan box. This worker tried to get my paper. He said he could take it for me. I said "No!!!"

As I was waiting for my Mom, I was very upset about this person. I told one of the workers what I have watched this person do. She just said, "Well, I have never seen him do anything." It sure made me wonder how many people that thought he was helping, when to me he was breaking the law. --Mitzi

Sally Kemp: What does having money have to do with it?

Personal commentary

Sally Kemp writes
I wish someone would explain to me how having money and being a write in candidate created the problems associated with the election snafu! Voters denied their civil right to vote, voters given the right to vote without living in the City, voting machines having locks removed and machine tally's not matching ballots. How could this possibly be associated with Ben Arnold? - SALLY KEMP

Mike Watson: Adair Countian lost life as result of Sultana explosion

150 years ago a terrific explosion aboard the Sultana, a steam vessel on the Mississippi River, near Memphis, claimed as many as 1800 lives; most were recent prisoners of war. MW

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

(Written Monday, 27 April 2015) - One hundred fifty years ago, 27 April 1865, the Sultana, a side-wheel steam boat, carrying 2,427 people, burned and exploded on the Mississippi River near Memphis, Tennessee.

As many as 1,800 lost their lives in the disaster. Many were former prisoners of war, returning home. No complete and accurate list of those lost is available as no accurate record of those who were on board survived.

Marcia Shuffett: Dr. Arnold acted after citizens told him of issues

Writer says Dr. Arnold didn't instigate problem
Personal Commentary

Marcia Shuffett writes:
Also, I would like to point out, unless I misunderstood, is that Dr. Arnold only reacted to the problems that may have happened in the voting process when citizens saw things that weren't right and went to him for help and not that Dr. Arnold was crying in his soup and angry that he had not won.

That is two distinct and completely different senarios...some people seem to think that Dr. Arnold instigated this whole thing and from what I heard and understood, nothing could be farther from the truth. - Marcia Shuffett

Jamie Isabelle comments on the Mayor's Race

Personal commentary

Jamie Isabelle writes: As I have said before, all this mayor mess boils down to one thing. That's if you have money then you should have your way.

There shouldn't even be a debate on this issue in my opinion. For starters, if Arnold was so worried about our big city of Columbia he would have been on the ballot, in black and white from the beginning like Hardwick was and the other candidates.

Filed under "Suspicions Confirmed," he says

Jon Halsey writes:
"...and returned within a few minutes and took a vote which was 4-0, to adjourn."

While "Silence is Golden," it seems to be speaking loudly in this instance! Personally, I'll file this on under Suspicions Confirmed.

And thanks to Charles Mashburn for reminding us of the wisdom and insight of Samuel Clemens. I suspicion that some of Mr. Clemens sagacity passed thru from his Adair ancestry. - Jon Halsey

The Whitehurst Diaries: Turkey Season in Pellyton

Click headline for article and photos

By: Sharon Whitehurst

Our Pellyton neighbor, Jay Rose, has accumulated a large store of knowledge regarding birds, animals and plants. We have come to know that when he stops by we will learn more about the flora and fauna of our adopted state. If we encounter an unfamiliar tree or wildflower, Jay will be able to supply identification.

Jay pulled into the driveway of the lower farmhouse as I was crossing the lawn, trowel in hand, at about noon. As I approached the open window of his truck he inquired, "Would you like a turkey dinner?"

Amy Pike: Many unanswered questions on decision by Election Board

Question of how much it will cost to appeal, who pays is raised. 'The initial $4,000 may not sound like an astounding amount but when you add the 'additional fees' it could become an astronomical amount that the taxpayers are liable for. Could this amount be $4,000, $40,000, or $400,000 once everything is completed and the court proceedings are finished?,' she writes, and adds: "It is easy to make a decision when it is not your personal money that is being spent to pay the charges.

Personal commentary

As many, including myself, have stated there are many unanswered questions about the decision made by the Election Board. Mr. Halsey made some excellent points in his commentary.

It is my understanding that both Sheriff Moss and Clerk Greer declined to vote because of their candidacy in the November election. Personally, I do not see as to how that is an adequate reason considering that none of the county races were ever in dispute. To my knowledge, everyone was allowed to vote in the county races. The city races were the only ones with discrepancies where people who lived in the city were not allowed city ballots and some who live in the county were.

Peggy Fudge: Wants above-board elections re-established

And asks what is being done to prepare for unexpected vacancies?

Peggy Fudge writes:
I have the same concerns as expressed by EW and Sally Kemp. I hope this will end in a fair resolution, with voting rights and legal, above-board elections re-established I am also wondering about the lack of a way to fill an unexpected vacancy, be it due to recent circumstances, death, resignation or alien abduction. Preparedness in all things is important for our civic security. --Peggy Fudge

Mike Keltner: Map of the EF-1 tornado 25 Apr 2015

2015-04-26 - Adair County District 3 - Photo from Mike Keltner, Adair County Emergency Management Director. National Weather Service Map .
The path of what we now was an EF-1 tornado originated in between the Glens Fork and Joppa communities on Dale Morrison Road. The tornado then continued east toward E Curry Road, crossing Montpelier Road heading toward and crossing the first entrance to Old Montpelier Rd. The tornado held its direction before crossing Old Montpelier Road a second time just South of Holliday Road. After the second crossing of Old Montpelier Road the tornado dissipated and took a right turn (south) before terminating near the Reynolds Creek bridge on Acree Road. The tornados path was 3.8 miles long and had an average damage width of 100 yards. The wind speed estimated average was 105 to 110 MPH in damaged areas.
