Cat Tracker thinks mystery snow formations ARE Snow Donuts

Darryl Smith writes:
Hi, Ed. If you'll look at this picture of cat tracks in the snow, you'll see how the paw impression displaces and concentrates snow into a doughnut shape. When the snow starts to melt, the fluffy, un-compacted snow melts away before the denser areas, leaving the circles you see. If you Google small animal tracks in snow you will find images with the circles. I can't link a url here. -Darryl Smith, cat tracker

KSP Post 15 treats record number of children to Christmas

Children and families meet in two points in Post 15 area: Campbellsville and Columbia

By TFC Billy R. Gregory, Public Information Officer

COLUMBIA, KY. (Fri 19 Jan 2018) Ė A record high 51 children from the Post 15 counties were treated to Christmas on December 18th and 19th, 2017. Post 15 began participating in the annual Shop with a Trooper program, which occurs around the state at different Post locations, in 2009 and has averaged helping to provide Christmas to 38 children, ages 0-18. Monies are provided by donors and fund raising efforts.

Two events were held on consecutive nights to allow for the participating family members of the children to have access to areas closer to them. Children in the northern Post 15 service area met with Troopers, CVE Officers, dispatchers and other helpers in Taylor County where they were treated to a meal prior to a shopping spree at the local Wal-Mart where needs and some wants were met. The children from the southern Post 15 service area met in Adair County.

Collectively, 47 people participated in helping to feed, serve and shop with the children. Post 15 services Washington, Marion, Taylor, Green, Russell, Casey, Adair, Metcalfe, Monroe, Clinton and Cumberland county.

More study needed on formations in Russell Co. snow

By Dan Wilson

The snow picture I sent you yesterday have created quite a conversation. I've gotten additional emails and messages saying these is snow doughnuts and snow rollers, but reading how snow rollers and snow doughnuts are formed, what we sent you, does not meet the criteria for either. I am sending the pictures to the National Weather Service in Louisville to see what they say.

What's your thoughts on what it could be?

- Daniel

Daniel: Time was when any Adair Countian would have seen the photo, walked a few paces to our local varmintologist's - Dr. Billy Neat's - PVA office, asked for and would have gotten a straight forward answer, rendered with great certainty, whether the answer was right or not. Alas, since we lost the great man, it is not easy, though God knows and I know that he made every effort to pass his wisdom on to Bill Ballou and Ray Hutchison - and me - all extant examples of prehistoric life here. So we're waiting to hear from our betters at the National Weather Service or in Russell County itself for what the curiosities are. We're posting the photos, just in case someone is channeling Dr. Neat and can come up with something either the correct answer or a compellingly entertaining one. - ED

Birds of KY: Patient Robins of Grady Loop end photo session


2018-01-19 - Grady Loop, Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
After patiently posing for a good five minutes, these red-red Robins of Grady Loop asserted a Robin perogative and took flight. The photo was taken Thursday afternoon, January 19, 2018, at around 4:39pmCT. The birds were just one of the wonders along this rising Columbia neighborhoods, another best kept secrets in our town. Grady Loop is a narrow (14 ft?) country lane, and in this section, it's difficult for cars to pass each other without one moving off the road. But Grady Loop therapy can change one's day. Just remember, as we try to do, that though it's a public road, it's the residents neighborhood, and treat it as though it were private. Grady Loop connects Burkesville Street at the First Baptist Church with Bomar Heights. - EW

Andy Beshear applauds PSC ruling in AEP/Kentucky power case

By Terry Sebastian or Crystal Staley

FRANKFORT, KY (18 Jan 2018) - "When AEP/Kentucky Power tried to raise utility bills for Eastern Kentucky families by 16 percent, I promised to fight. When others agreed to a lesser increase, I refused. Because of that fight, today, the PSC issued a series of rulings that the PSC claims will not increase, but actually decrease monthly bills by 4 percent. My office will carefully review the rulings to confirm the decrease. While a decrease would be good news, I understand utility bills in the AEP/Kentucky Power region are still unaffordable, and I will continue to fight so that no family must decide between feeding their children or keeping them warm."

Sidewalk clearance: Best ever? Not perfection, but progress


2018-01-19 - Adair County Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
The Columbia Street Department did an excellent job clearing streets during the latest snow, and maybe the best ever at clearing sidewalks. Sidewalk snow removal isn't yet at the same level as streets, and some sidewalks - particularly those on The Pike segment of Burkesville Street beyond its intersection with Hudson, appeared untouched. But overall, progress was made. It's a welcome sight to see such progress, which was more appreciated than ever after a visit to the Adair County School District, where the overall campus maintenance is setting a new standard, and where the message is "Strive for progress, not perfection." - EW.

School Board braved the snow for 18 Jan 2018 regular session


2018-01-19 - Adair County School District Central Office, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, Columbia, KY.
The Adair County School Board, above, had all eyes on the presentation by Dean of Students Robbie Harmon, as he presented the 2018-19 calendar. From left: Lauren McQuaide, student board member; Daniel Adams (Div 2); Dr. Pam Stephens, Superintendent; Board Chair, Lisa Burton (3), Board Member Jonathan Gaskins (4), and Vice Chair Terry Harvey (1). The board re-elected officers or the calendar year: Lisa Burton as Chair; Terry Harvey as Vice Chair; Dr. Stephens as secretary to the board, and retained the regular meeting time for 6pmCT, each third Thursday of each month. The agenda included the election of a board attorney, but Superintendent Stephens, who presided over the election of new offices, said that there was not needed, as Jeff Hoover's term, set in 2017, was for two years. - EW

KY Afield Outdoors: 5th-highest deer harvest on record

By Kevin Kelly

Frankfort, KY - Looking at the total number of deer harvested by hunters in Kentucky during the 2017-18 season, it would appear nothing was out of the ordinary.

The season ended earlier this month. When it did, hunters had combined to take more than 136,000 deer across the state, making it the sixth consecutive season with a harvest total greater than 130,000 and the fifth highest total on record in Kentucky.

"I expected the harvest to be down a good bit, so I'm pleasantly surprised," said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "It's the fifth highest harvest on record. The central and western parts of the state pretty much carried our harvest."

Indeed, harvest totals were up in the Bluegrass, Green River and Purchase regions compared to the 2016-17 season. Hunters in the Bluegrass Region reported taking more than 42,500 deer, but it was a county in the Purchase Region that led the state.
