Summer learning continues at Camp Rocket

Click headline for story with photos

By Dana Harmon, 21st CCLC Director

The learning continues both indoors and out this summer at Adair County Primary Center, 158 Col. Casey Drive, Columbia. Camp Rocket participants have spent two hours and thirty minutes each day sharpening their reading and math skills, an hour on academic enrichment, a whole lot of physical activity and tons of fun! In addition each day a community partner has brought a special lesson on a variety of subjects ranging from the importance of summer reading to bicycle safety.

Research shows that over the course of the summer, students can lose up to 2 months worth of work from the previous school year. Summer learning loss can create a gap of up to 2 to 5 years by the time students reach high school.

Summer Learning Programs like 21st CCLC-Camp Rocket help our students prevent summer learning loss by engaging them in learning activities during the summer months. This summer we have had a very dedicated group of teachers who have given their all to make sure students continue to learn and have fun, Lisa Hayes, Jennifer Perkins, Christina Ferguson and Lou Anne Coomer have done an outstanding job of keeping students engaged and active. We have also had some excellent community partners, who have brought great lessons and usually goodies to share with our students. We could not do what we do without them all.

KY Afield Outdoors: Best Kayaks for Flat Water Fishing

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - A car, truck or sport utility vehicle with a couple of kayaks on the roof with fishing poles visible through the back window is an increasingly common sight on Kentucky highways.

Sales data shows kayak fishing and related kayak accessories increasing in popularity. Some of this popularity has to do with many baby boomers reaching retirement age and wanting a new hobby.

Price is another aspect of the rise in popularity of kayak fishing. They are a replacement for a fishing boat for many people scared off by the rising cost of power boats.

While many associate kayaks with flowing water, a huge number buy a kayak to fish small lakes, the backwaters of reservoirs, rivers and large farm ponds.

Letter: Solid, scientific speculation on the mystery tree

The Spoke Easy writes:
So, the only story I know came from an elderly man who came into the shop. He claims that the site was an old farm homestead for generations. The tree was growing on top of a cleared hill next to the barn. The barn had chickens that would roost in the tree and as the tree grew, the branches were weighed down and shaped horizontally.

If this were true, then it could be said that once the forest started growing around the tree, the tree had to adapt and radically change the direction of its growth as it began competing for light from the surrounding foliage. Sound like malarkey? Tell me a better story! --The Spoke Easy

Does anyone remember: Very unusual tree?

The tree, a sugar maple, is on Lakeshore trail at Green River Lake State Park. It once had long lateral branches close to the ground, and about seven large vertical branches growing from them. It has most recently been stylized into the logo for The Spoke Easy Bicycle Shop at 225 E. Main in Campbellsville, KY.
Writer/photographer Wayne Baxter is searching for information about that tree from anyone who lived in the area before Green River Dam was built.

Art appreciation: to my kin and to Adair Co. icon, Henrietta Scott

So happy Cousin Matilda found her father's art - which he inherited from his mother with that huge boost he got from 'Ms. Henrietta.'

Just about every time I visit the Waggener home I can spot beautiful art throughout the house.

Sometimes it's on the wall, propped up on something, or in the little shed out back.
