Visioning Adair County

This article first appeared in issue 33, and was written by Linda Waggener.

Heart of Adair will host a "Visioning our Future" meeting on Friday, March 23, from ten to 11:30 at the new Chamber of Commerce Building on Burkesville Street.

Michael Childress, Executive Director of the Kentucky Long-Term Policy Research Center in Frankfort, will detail the Center's successful 'Visioning Kentucky's Future' project and share ideas on how the exercise can be useful for Adair County, Columbia and our multi-county area.

Childress graduated from UK, then received his MA from the UCLA - both in political science. He was a social scientist at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, California for five years where he authored numerous studies on topics ranging from demographic trends in the third world to the implications of declining budgets for the U.S. Army. In 1993 Childress came back to Kentucky to become the first executive director of the KLTPRC. He and his wife, Anne, have one daughter and triplet sons.
