Ron Heath states why he will vote for Adair County to go wet

'The solution isn't for Adair County to stay dry. It's for parents to accept responsibility for raising their children so they know right from wrong when it comes to alcohol, drugs, and driving.' - RON HEATH

Personal commentary

For some time now I have read with interest the ongoing discussion about whether Adair County should "go wet" or "stay dry." Area residents have expressed their opinions for and against. Some comments are based strictly on emotions. They make wild and unsubstantiated claims of impending doom if the county goes wet. Others have tried to present a rational argument either for or against the issue at hand. Today I'd like to add my two cents worth.

I intend to vote for Adair County to go wet. Many individuals have already mentioned the economic impact the sale of alcohol will have on this area. Instead of tax revenue going to Taylor, Marion, Russell, or Somerset Counties it will stay here to help citizens of Adair County. There are only two ways I know to balance a budget - either cut spending or raise taxes. Given the choice I know which one I would take.

Writer urges Yes vote for Employment, Economic & Tourism

Personal commentary

Dear Editor,

I am writing in regards to the upcoming Wet/Dry election. A YES vote will bring positive employment, economic and tourism benefits. Don't be intimidated by scare tactics. Research the facts before making a decision. We've made no major advancements on the economic front for many years. Isn't it time we give our citizens a chance to prosper here? I urge you to VOTE YES on March 22, 2016.

Thank you,
Jenny Dawson

Kentucky Afield Outdoors: 5 questions with John Hast

By Kevin Kelly

Frankfort, KY - The allure of doing "cool stuff" for a living played into John Hast's decision to take a seasonal job with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources back in 2006.

The Owensboro, Kentucky, native considered putting his biology degree from Centre College to use as an agriculture extension agent when along came the opportunity to work as a wildlife technician.

It was a foot in the door and a launching pad toward establishing himself as a leading authority on Kentucky's black bears.

Shannon Sexton: Legalize it, regulate it and control it.

Response to: Comments re article 81008 Michael Regan Will vote to keep dark genie in the bottle

By Shannon Sexton, Chair, PAC (Progress in Adair County
Personal Commentary

With all due respect, your commentary revolves around fatalities of teenage drivers in alcohol related accidents. The legal age to purchase alcohol in a wet county is 21. Businesses will not jeopardize their investment and license by selling to underage teens. Where are these teens getting alcohol? I would suspect illegally from the bootlegger - the same place they\'ve purchased it for years.

Legalize it, regulate it and control it. Thanks,
- Shannon Sexton

Derek Nickel: Look at counties which have voted Wet

Pro-Legal Sales advocate asks voters to be Responsible, to look at other counties which have voted wet in our area and then make decision

By Derek Nickel
Personal commentary

It’s almost impossible to overstate how important next month’s wet-dry election is in Adair Counties social, cultural and economical history. It seems as though some people have blinders on when focusing on keeping Adair County dry and stagnant. I am not here to bash any personal or religious beliefs, you have just as much right to vote no for your own reasons as I do to vote yes. I would however like to attempt to sway your vote for my own (and many others) selfish, down right greedy reasons.

Spring forest fire hazard season is here

Burning laws to be enforced beginning February 15 - April 30, 2016

By Jennifer Turner
News from KY Energy and Environment Cabinet

FRANKFORT, KY (Fri 12 Feb 2016) - It doesn't make sense for wildfires to start easily when Kentucky has had such a run of cold, wet weather, but how wet or cold the ground is has little to do with how vulnerable dead grass is to a spark.

"Despite recent precipitation, dead fuels like grass, leaves and twigs are rapidly dried with sunlight and wind," said William H. Steele, Jr., director of the Division of Forestry. "With only a few hours of sunlight and wind, these fuels can become primed for carrying a wildfire. It is very important that people do not develop a false confidence during wet conditions."

Crews are out spot treating this morning with another light coating of snow. Most primary routes are wet.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Unexpected memories

Unexpected memories
~ a sonnet in memory of Clara Elizabeth Ellis on her birthday
The quiet sadness never disappears
though sting be more or less from day to day.
No longer living swim within our tears,
who living often lived too far away.

The stirring gladness ever comes in view
through unexpected memories evoked.
All unforgotten olds will be made new,
all worn and tattered brightly will be cloaked.

Things done and things not done fade in and out
throughout the seasons marking off our lives
and learning what to be content about
brings satisfaction soft with what survives.

So long as stories often are retold
the lives that formed us further will unfold.
~ Robert Stone, 11 February 2016
