Fog alerts around Green River Dam



2012-12-05 - Taylor County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener.
Fog alerts are frequent this season while Kentucky can't decide whether to stay with fall or go ahead and move into winter weather. The scenery in the early morning hours this week has been beautifully layered with white clouds. It was hard to tell where earth stopped and sky began. This rolling farmland is located near Green River Dam.

Adair County receives $1.5 million WRH loan repayment

By Ed Waggener

Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton received a check for $1,500,000 from Westlake Regional Hospital on Friday, November 30, 2012. The money was deposited in an interest-bearing Adair County General Fund Account, pending Adair Fiscal Court approval on application of the funds. That approval is expected to come no later than the January 2013 meeting of Fiscal Court.

Westlake Regional Hospital was able to make the payment after receiving "meaningful use" money for implementiing electronic record keeping.

Judge Melton said that she plans, at present, to ask the court's approval to apply the money to pay off, in full, a local bank loan rather than putting it toward retiring a $1.7 million bond issue, as originally planned.

Beautiful Blue Sunrise seen from Bull Run hill this morning

Seizing the moment: Average sunrise is less than 3 minutes
Click on headline for item with Barbara's Blue Sunrise

By Barbara Armitage

Last August we had a Blue Moon but this morning we had a Blue Sunrise at Tucker's Station. We feed the puppies at 6amCT every morning so I see a lot of colorful sunrises. This morning the view was special. The entire sky was a brilliant blue; the only clouds were low and to the east.

As the sun began to rise it cast a calming blue glow on everything. It was truly beautiful.

On average it takes less than 3 minutes for the sun to rise. See how fast the world can pass by if you're not paying attention. - Barbara Armitage
