State Senator Max Wise tests positive for COVID-19

Frankfort, Ky. (July 13, 2020) - The following is a statement from Senator Max Wise regarding his positive COVID-19 test:

"This past Thursday, I began experiencing very mild symptoms that I thought might be consistent with COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, I contacted my local healthcare provider first thing Friday morning and was scheduled to be seen that afternoon. Two tests were given, and both tests yielded positive results. Since that test on Friday afternoon, I have felt fine and I am no longer experiencing any symptoms.

Governor's Monday update

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear on Monday updated Kentuckians on the state's continued efforts to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Gov. Beshear emphasized his priorities - protecting the health and safety of all Kentuckians, restarting our economy and opening our schools - and said wearing a mask is the most important step we all can take to achieve those goals.

"So, what do we have to do? What are the actions that we have to take to protect our economy, to make sure that we protect $10 billion of our economy? It's pretty simple. Wear a facial covering," said Gov. Beshear. "Facial coverings help us achieve our three goals. No. 1 goal is to protect the lives and the health of Kentuckians. It is now a scientific fact: Wearing a mask protects both you and other people."

He noted that cases are surging across the nation, causing many states to roll back their efforts to reopen their economies.

"The second goal is restarting our economy," Gov. Beshear said. "There are multiple states now rolling back their reopening. I don't want that to be us."

Robert Stone - I am: a sonnet of hopeful change

Poetry by Robert Stone: I am: a sonnet of hopeful change

When I am dead and buried you at last
will never need to worry what words more
I might dig up from our unhappy past
that you would choose with patience to ignore.

But I am still alive and spouting words
collected through my years of reading much
about the swimming fish and flying birds
and all the things I did not fear to touch.

If I am honest I acknowledge choice
to set aside all unkind thoughts and acts
and do those things that will make you rejoice
when best of me is guided by sound facts.

Yet I am shaking in my shoes afraid
of failing to achieve a passing grade.

- Robert Stone, 12 July 2020

History Monday: Mad Dogs Always a Concern

By Mike Watson

Growing up in rural Adair County afforded many exciting moments. There were instances of heavy rains and high water, snakes on the porch, falling tree limbs, skunks, bee swarms, and so much more, including the occasional strange dog in the neighborhood. An unusual canine always created murmurs of possible rabies and the animal would have to be checked on, and due process, if necessary, carried out. Mad dogs have always been of concern, for they may bite anything or anyone, as the following story from the The Courier-Journal of 19 March 1874 illustrates:

Man's Faithful Friend -- Fido in the Country -- A Lively Demand for Madstones -- Campbellsville, Ky., Letter, March 16, in the Lebanon Standard -- Rabid dogs seem to be abundant this season. We have had them here, and hear of them in several other localities. One in Green County has bitten many dogs and a number of cattle. Two or three persons have been bitten, among them William Clark, aged about 16, son of Thomas J. Clark, proprietor of the hotel at Greensburg.

Letter: About the Bear Killed by Vaughn

Roger Smith writes:
Although I do not question the honesty and abilities of my dear friend Ed's reporting of the actions of the bear board, I do, in all honesty, feel that I should clear up one credential of a Bear Board member.

Since this individual has been one of my long time close friends and we have shared both woods and waters together, I know that he would not like to have an incorrect fact published about his hunting abilities, I offer the following correction.

Back in the day, the word was that Mr. Vaughn did not actually shoot the bear, but the bear saw him sitting up in a tree and passed away from heart failure due to uncontrollable laughter!

Please accept my account as quoted by one of his fellow Bear Board members.

Sincerely submitted by his long time friend.

COVID-19 Update: Masks are a requirement

FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 12, 2020) - Gov. Andy Beshear on Sunday updated Kentuckians on the state's continued efforts to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

"Folks, this is serious. So what we need everybody to do is wear that mask. It's a requirement, just like wearing your seatbelt. At every store, it's no shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service," said Gov. Beshear. "This is just where we are in our battle as Americans and as Kentuckians against COVID-19."

Case Information - As of 4 p.m. July 12, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 19,389 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 277 of which were newly reported Sunday. Comparing cases reported from June 29 to July 5 with cases reported from July 6 to July 12, there is a 48.7% increase in positive cases.

"Given the elevated rate of positive COVID-19 cases that continues to increase, the need to curb spread of infection and keep others safe must be taken seriously," said Dr. Steven Stack, commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health. "It is important for everyone to realize we all have a role in containing this disease so hospital capacity remains at a manageable level. Kentuckians must stay committed to this very important effort."

Letter: What the mask mandate is, and isn't

Amy Pike writes:
The mask mandate by the governor is an executive order and not a law. Therefore, it is not the police department's responsibility to enforce the mandate, that would defer to the Health Department.

The police department's role is to enforce Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS). Business owners can choose whether to enforce it or not but there are several exemptions as outlined in the Governor's official order. You can view that at this link -

Another note, 911 is a vital service to the community.

Bears Around Adair: Are There Any?

"Those of common minds should, perhaps, not follow the Bear Board inquiry, as there may be ideas considered of such weight and magnitude that they could split the heads of ordinary persons as though they were ripe watermelons."

By Ed Waggener, 1996

From issue 9, when Columbia Magazine was a little print magazine.

The official Columbia Adair County Blue Ribbon Bear Board is founded to get to bottom of bear business.

Are there bears in Adair County? Where? What kind are they? Could they be descendants of Haskin's Hobart Coomer Bear? Are they a friendly sort of bear? If not, what precautions should be taken with children, pets, small livestock, and tourists? Should bears come under planning & zoning?

These and other questions have challenged Adair Countians with perplexing regularity now and for the recent past few years.

Stories abound of bear sightings, most from folks who know someone who saw a bear in Adair County or who know someone who knows someone who saw a bear.

In as much as the very future of the county could be at stake, Columbia magazine, which goes where no man has gone before, has induced a group of men to get to the bottom of the issue. To be known as the Columbia! Blue Ribbon Bear Board, these undaunted panelists are working without pay, They labor only for the promise of a place in history and widespread personal fame. There will be no meetings.

COVID-19 Q&A: Masks make infection risk less

From weekly Health Department Question and Answer public meeting. This point was explained by Stuart Spillman, Environmental Health Director, LCDHD.

Question: I was in a church service with attempted social distancing but no one was wearing a mask. Someone in the church tested positive and I was told to self isolate along with most of the congregation. If everyone in the church had been wearing a mask would we have had to self isolate? I feel like that would make the difference to a lot of church members if they understood that.

Answer: Yes you would still have to be quarantined; however, the risk of being infected would be a lot less. We are unable to quantify that risk, hence as a precaution quarantine is necessary.

Wearing a mask and distancing helps prevent the spread of the virus and ultimately helps prevent an outbreak. You may still be considered a contact due to exposure time in a confined space, but have reduced your risk of contracting Covid.

Recycling is big business in Wayne County

From unsorted recyclables to a belt line, to aluminum cans, to shredded bales of paper, cardboard, plastic bottles and milk jugs... recycling a big business.

By Mary Ellis for the Wayne County Outlook in June 2019

Smoke damage from one end to the other of the Recycling Center caused by a vehicle fire near the back of the structure accounted for the business moving to a temporary location and operate, but it's now back open just off North Main in Monticello.

Solid Waste Coordinator Tim Bell described the smoke damage as unbelievable. Work crews tore out the walls, down to the bare metal and built the inside of the structure back - from the ground up including new wiring and insulation. The makeover created "all new looks" and it's like you're walking into a brand new facility.

JIM: The story behind an old picture


The following article appeared on page one (jumped to page four) of the April 7, 1937 edition of the Adair County News.

Photo Shows Town Years Ago

An old picture, containing faces of only a few men yet living and showing a portion of the Public Square as it appeared nearly 30 years ago, was shown us last week by Col. L.B. Hurt, genial ex-sheriff of the county who has done much to keep alive local history.

The picture was taken December 1 [1], 1908 on the east side of the Public Square and shows townspeople gathered excitedly about members of a posse from Russell County who had trailed Elmer Hill, alleged murderer of a little girl, into the county.

The story, as related to us by Col. Hurt, is that the posse, on horseback, tracked the accused killer to a point near the present residence of N.B. Kelsay [2], Jamestown Road. The party, carrying long rifles and led by sheriff Uriah Selby of Russell County, lost the trail there and rode into town. It was then that the picture was taken by J.W. Coy [3], who lives on Burkesville Street.

Mask or no mask - that is the question

By Phillip Coffey

One need not be of nobility to choose to wear a mask, "Hamlet". There are no questions involving which is more noble. If masks worn prevent another from becoming sick, choose to follow "The Golden Rule". Do not be cynical. Cynics are a dime a dozen.

When I saw honorable, very hard working men leaving the trappings of a underground mine site from a 28 inch Blue Gem coal opening after his shift long ago totally covered with blackness, should I look in dismay and respond, "Why are you wearing that mask, do you not know you should not permit the Government to put intrusions upon you conflicting with your individual liberties? I dare say they make you feel uncomfortable by taking those drastic steps."
