Gabby Pedroza begins Glory Hands For Venezuela to help others

In effort to help babies and children survive in her home country, LWC student Gabby Pedroza is starting a foundation, Glory Hands For Venezuela (Manos Gloriosas para Venezuela), and asking questions of her American family and friends about how to raise funds and how they might be able to get help directly to those in dire need.

By Linda Waggener

Jeanne and Charles Marshburn of Columbia are host parents to six Lindsey Wilson college international students. A friend of one of their students, their kids, as Jeanne calls them, has a goal to somehow help kids in her Venezuelan home:

"This young lady at Lindsey Wilson is truly an inspiration. She is a brilliant girl. Came to LWC from Venezuela at the age of 16 (I think) and is now on her 3rd year here (I think). Over the summer she worked with starving babies & children in Venezuela and then came back here to school and has organized raffles and a blood drive to help her sick and hungry country. The pictures of her holding starving, dying babies is heart breaking. I sincerely believe this "child" will find ways to help thousands and am so proud to know her." -- Jeanne Marshburn

Dean of Students Robbie Harmon listening to comment

2017-09-22 - Adair County Board of Education Conference Room, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,
Dean of Students Robbie Harmon, right, and First Division School Board Member Terry Harvey, listen to comments from Mike Harris on the idea Dean Harmon floated on the possibility of Adair County instituting a paperless registration process. Harmon presented the proposal without advocating a change, acknowledging that there would be additional costs - $7,500 per year to the software/consultant service - and that the current system is working really well. The board will be saving $3,000 this year, even without the paperless registration by providing online, paperless student manuals by eliminating hard copies and their attendant copier and paper fees. Harvey, the board's vice chairman, agreed the board's decision on paperless registration, but said that he is hopeful that Adair County Schools will take advantage of the State Board of Education option to have online education in lieu of snow days. "I've been for that all along," he said. - EW Paired Photo

Billy Joe Fudge: Why are there two U.S. 31's between L & N?

To a traveler who loves both roads, it is strange

By Billy Joe Fudge

A question.

I have a question and no I don't have the answer.

Why are there two Highway 31's from Nashville to Louisville and what is the history of their strange existence? Or at least, I think it is strange. Reason being, I don't know of any other similar scenario.

I love both roads and a day trip on each is a thrill which will take you back to a time and place for which you've been longing.

Adair Co. School Bd. waiting for session start 21 Sep 2017

2017-09-22 - Adair Co. School Board Conference Room, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,
Light was still streaming in on the conference room just before the 6pmCT start of the last day of summer, September 21, 2017, as the meeting awaited the call to order by Board Chair Lisa Burton, second from right. Others present for the quick-paced meeting, are, from left, Mike Harris (Div. 5), Daniel Adams (2), Student member Lauren McQuaide, Dr. Pam Stephens, Superintendent; (Burton), (seat usually held by board attorney Coleman Hurt; and seat usually held by board member Jonathan Gaskins/4) and Board Vice Chair Terry Harvey (1). The meeting was relatively brief, with mostly upbeat news, except for reports of dire state funding cuts affecting all state streams except for the largest one, SEEK - an irony in the face of the dramatic improvements public schools are experiencing now. The hammer on the state retirement system has not fallen totally yet. Dr. Stephens said that already, concern for how the state handles existing plans has caused the system to lose three experienced teachers. Others are playing a day-by-day waiting game, ready to immediately retire if the decisions in Frankfort compel them to do so. - EW

Click on headline for full story with photo(s)

By Allison Horseman and Cindy Clouse

Somerset, Ky. - The Welding Program at Somerset Community College was recently faced with a challenging situation: five of their welding machines, necessary tools for students to learn how to weld, were down. Unfortunately, the program's budget did not allow for the machines to be sent off for repair. In addition, the time it would take to send the machines off would seriously impact student learning hours.
