ACHS in line to become satellite campus of LCA Tech Center

Adair County High School may soon become a satellite campus of Lake Cumberland Area Technology Center, specializing in Health Careers. Move is seen as a giant step for opportunities for higher paying jobs, entry into work force, and college readiness
The idea of forming an alliance with the Technology Center is very exciting and would create wonderful opportunities for our students. As our population ages the job market for individuals with health care certificates will do nothing but grow. Our students will be able to leave ACHS ready to immediately go to work or move on into post-secondary programs in Health Care. Best of all, students could complete the industry certificates in health care right here on our campus and meet the new state Work Ready requirements for high school students. - SUPT. ALAN W. REED

Campbellsville Apparel laying off 36 individuals today

Reduction comes as a result of reduced Defense Department spending
Most of the employees are from Taylor County, but other counties, including Adair, are affected. - LARRY SMITH

Received from Larry Smith, Operations Manager
The Big Dawg, 99.9 FM Radio, Campbellsville, KY

Campbellsville Apparel has permanently laid off 36 individuals as of Monday, October 29, 2012. This layoff comes after last week receiving final orders for the next six months and projections for 2013 from the Defense Logistics Agency. Most of the employees in the tee shirt area have been working part time by rotating layoffs since the end of May.

After receiving final word regarding production, the Company had no choice other than to make these adjustments. The employees of Campbellsville Apparel have been very loyal and very patient waiting to hear what their work schedule would be. Also, 12 individuals decided to retire. The demand for tee shirts and briefs has decreased from the Defense Logistics Agency due to current Administration reductions in the Defense budget. The Company will offer severance pay to those employees leaving. This will leave a workforce of 109 individuals remaining at Campbellsville Apparel working on five current contracts. - Chris Reynolds, Campbellsville Apparel Company

Odd cloud shapes - undulatus asperatus - pretty in sunsets

By Joyce Coomer

I've seen these odd cloud formations for years -- I watch the sky quite a bit since clouds can have beautiful shapes. We had some of these odd looking clouds here about a month ago, as spectacular as the picture taken in Somerset. I took a few pics before a downpour moved in. If you check the Internet, there are some glorious pictures of this type of cloud formation - undulatus asperatus, I think they're called, some near sunset with the clouds a vivid orange. Just type in "odd cloud pictures" in browser search box. -Joyce Coomer
