KY Afield Outdoors: HIP survey to help future hunts

2015-08-27 - Franklin Co., KY - Photo by Lee McClellan. Lawrenceburg resident David Yancy swings after a dove during a hunt on a private field in Franklin County last year. Before pursuing any migratory birds this season, hunters must complete the Harvest Information Program (H.I.P.) survey and obtain a confirmation number. The H.I.P. survey gives biologists better data to make more informed management decisions to keep populations of migratory birds, including doves, ducks and geese, bountiful in the future.

KY Afield Outdoors: New procedures for Harvest Information

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - Hunters possess a long history of taking actions that benefit wildlife conservation. They tax themselves and buy licenses, permits and stamps that support the vitality of both game and non-game animals.

The Harvest Information Program (H.I.P.) of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is an evolution of these long-standing practices. This year, changes to the program caused some consternation among outdoors enthusiasts who must answer a few questions after purchasing their Kentucky Migratory Game Bird- Waterfowl Hunting Permit.

Adair County School Board sets tax rate at 51.7 cents

Board leaves rates unchanged on motor vehicles, utilities, aircraft (exempt), and watercraft. Rate change will amount to $3 on average tax bill of $30,000.

By Ed Waggener

The Adair County School Board voted for a compromise tax rate which will slightly elevate receipts midway between a "compensating rate" or revenue neutral, and the maximum 4% tax increase Kentucky law allows.

The board voted, 3-1, in a special session held this morning, Thursday, August 27, 2015, at 8amCT, to set the rate at 51.7 cents per $100 of assessments, without exonerations (an increase which would have allowed to board to recover past year's losses because of exonerations. The prior rate was 50.5 cents.
The new rate will bring in about $80,000 more in revenue. It will mean an annual increase of approximately $3 on the average tax bill, Finance Officer Renae Smith said.

Carol Perkins: 'Humble' and 'Selfie' not synonyms

She's the picture taker at everything, but isn't in many photographs herself. 'The day I take a selfie,' she says, 'is the day I have lost my mind.'
Next previous Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: In a small town, it's not about money

By Carol Perkins

When my great grandchildren go through my collection of pictures, piecing together their family tree, they will see very few of me. I am the picture taker (guess that would be photographer) at all reunions, holidays, vacations and activities. It is time for a change. I am going to start taking selfies. I will need a selfie stick in order to get my face and shoulders in the shot. I can't wait to begin.
