Wet/Dry Petition: Writer says it's positive move for Adair

Kathy Powell writes:
What a positive move this would be for Adair. This is such a great county, but think of the growth with maybe a local Winery and local cheese, Micro Brewery, or local place to eat that could serve a nice wine with your steak. The money that is spent by Adair county residents NOW on such things could stay here in Adair and help our local economy. Tourist who now choose to spend time and money in surrounding counties will come to enjoy all that Adair County has to offer. -Kathy Powell

Shamarie Claiborne in San Antonio: An afternoon downtown

The Riverwalk and More
Click on headline for story with photo(s). Photo posting in progress; see six now. Over a dozen are planned for today.

By Shamarie Claiborne

One afternoon I spent taking shots of Downtown San Antonio. The scenery there is so different than ours but beautiful all the same. They have a river that runs through downtown and instead of trying to cover it up or divert it, San Antonio has embraced it. They have created the Riverwalk that is full of hustle and bustle, good food, music, and beauty all rich in tradition. There are historic buildings and churches everywhere. I will say they should be commended on restoring and holding on to their heritage. These are some of the shots I got around downtown San Antonio. Remember NOT better than here, just different. - Shamarie Claiborne

Starts in 2014-15 school year. First head coach is Tommy Hall, of Campbellsville, KY, who now resides in Adair County.

By Chris Megginson
News from Campbellsville University

CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Campbellsville University athletics is expanding once again. Co-ed collegiate bass fishing will become CU's next intercollegiate varsity sport, beginning in 2014-15, Rusty Hollingsworth, CU athletic director, announced Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

Campbellsville student anglers have participated in the CU Fishing Club since 2010, but this announcement will make Campbellsville the first co-ed athletic department-supported fishing program in Kentucky, and one of the few in the nation to offer scholarships. There are nine other schools in Kentucky and more than 600 nationwide to offer competitive fishing, mostly as school clubs.
