I had tidied the kitchen after a family supper that included daughter Gina and her husband, Matt.

"Why are we in here when its so nice and cool on the front porch?' queried Matt.

We settled in the chairs on the porch, enjoying the scent of honeysuckle vine and watching Bobby McGee [one of last summer's 'drop-off' cats.] Bobby and his brothers, Nellie and Edward are confirmed bird watchers, who sometimes get carried away.

This is an incredible opportunity, click now to Technology Literate Science Class if Adair Countians get behind effort of Science Teacher Denise Grant to obtain two iPads for use by her science students at Adair County Primary Center this fall: Between now and June 2, 2013, Every Dollar Donated (and using the match code "INSPIRE", Donors Choose will match dollar-for-dollar: If we can do it all, by Sunday, June 2, 2013, we'll only need to give $502.50 to fulfill this dream for Adair County High School. Whether you can give the entire $502.50, or if you can afford just some part of that, now's the time to step up. - EW

By Shamarie Claiborne
News from the Adair County School District

With the huge success and community support Ms. Patty Jones received recently in purchasing chrome books for the students of the new Adair County Primary Center, Ms. Denise Grant from the Adair County Middle School is hoping for the same support in connection with two iPads she is trying to get donated for her 7th grade science classroom.

So you might be wondering how the iPads will be used and here is the answer straight from Ms. Grant:
"My students will use the iPads for data collection during routine laboratory investigations. The shift in science education is toward engineering and application which leads to a necessity in the ability to analyze data, create and read graphs, tables and charts. I have found an iPad APP that is perfect for this, but I need the devices to download the APP to! Students will work in stations and rotate through specific timed intervals to utilize the iPads during experiments, then work cooperatively to analyze the collected data. I also have a supplemental class daily in which I intend to employ the use of a computer-based program called Study Island. I have been unable to fully embrace this educational tool due to the lack of available devices for my students. It is an excellent way to review previously covered content and allow students to work at their own individual pace to assess their knowledge and skill level. By utilizing the iPads for data collection and for graphing results, students will gain, not only the specific analytical skill, but confidence in themselves as well! As 8th graders, students take the national assessment known as the EXPLORE test, which is a predictor of the PLAN, a precursor to the ACT. This exam is full of data analysis skills as well as specific content. Beginning in 7th grade with routine utilization of these abilities can only lead to a proficient student in later years!"
From now until Sunday, June 2, 2013 by entering the match code "INSPIRE" Donors Choose will match every donation dollar for dollar! For more details and a chance to help Adair County students please take a moment and check out the full details at Technology Literate Science Class/Ms. Grant's Technology project at Adair Co Middle School in Columbia, KY at Donor's Choose.org The 7th grade students of Adair County THANK YOU in advance, for your support in their pursuit of knowledge! - Shamarie

Martha Berry notes an irony in life of author Vista Allison

Martha Berry writes:
It's ironic that Mrs. Allison wrote such a comprehensive history of Adair County Methodism when she was never a member of the Methodist Church. Mr. Allison was faithful in attendance of the Methodist Church but she was, and remained the rest of her life, a member of the Christian Church, as were their children. I have the book and read it again not too long ago and as far as I know it is an accurate history of our Church in Adair County, KY. --Martha Berry

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

Here is my fourth and, I hope, final Adair writers...I'm not sure, but this looks like the ramblings of one who has fallen from the high end of the porch and taken a nasty crack about the skull, creating a knob of nonsense or some such medical suspicion. Temperature has risen above 75 here, that causes one to think randomly, perhaps foolishly... MW

Adair Writers IV

The more I read, the less I seem to know - or at least remember. Someone once told me, and I have adopted the line, "I try to learn new things each day, but some old things seem to be pushed off the back side of my memory shelf." We are told that no thing is forgotten, just not as easily accessed as more and more is processed. An anecdote told of Albert Einstein says he was once asked for his address and his reply was that he didn't know. Why?, he was asked. His reply, that he saw no reason to try to remember such trivial information; if he needed to know, he'd ask someone.

Leonard England sights bear on Independent Ridge

Bro. Lonnie Karnes, pastor of the Sparksville Church of the Nazarene, says that Leonard England's daughter said that her father, Leonard England, Breeding, KY, sighted a bear one day last week on Independent Ridge. Official word on the sighting is available straight from the source, Leonard England, at the Country Mart, 14332 Burkesville Rd Breeding, KY 42715 on the Bypass in Breeding.

One the many famous Leonard England Quotes, came a few years ago when new KY 61 S, Burkesville Road, was built, and Leonard England lamented, "It's a shame Breeding got a bypass before Columbia did." But that often happens, with progress in Breeding before Columbia even anticipates it. -EW

ACGC member offers gardening tips for jail garden

Learning to make compost would be another useful lesson for inmate gardeners

Maury Lewis writes:
This soil needs to be amended in the fall by putting in leaves from yards in the community.

I know there are lots of leaves at the Trabue house that could be picked up and used in these gardens and there are grass clippings at theTrabue house also that could be bagged for composting to go in these gardens to make the soil better to make the vegtables better.

While they are teaching inmates how to grow a garden they could learn how to make compost. There are also a lot of farms around so they could get the manure to go in the compost to go in the garden.

This is a great project, thanks for letting us know about this GREAT IDEA. - Maury Lewis

Mike Watson: Decoration Day was big event in early 1900s

Decoration Day... Mike Watson gleaned items from an Adair County News of over 100 years ago, with entries from all parts of the county, giving accounts of the observances in all parts of Adair County. Addresses at Decoration Day were often included. In 1901, Lt. Governor J.R. Hindman spoke at Mt. Carmel. M. Rey Yarberry, Judge H.C. Baker, and Elder Z.T. Williams were among many other noteworthies who spoke at these events.

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian


We never hear the term today, but for a very long time Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day. It was a day set aside to honor those who had served their country with service in the Armed Forces. With the passing of time, all dearly departed ones have gained the respect of grave adornment on this special day by those who remain behind. It is a sign of respect.

The Mt. Carmel community were quite active at the turn of the last century. There were those who worked tirelessly to organize annual Decoration Day activities, as evidenced by the following:

Likes idea of inmate garden; adds suggestions

Lois Cunningham writes:
I think this is a great idea. Inmates need a purpose other than sitting in a cell all day long. This kind of thing gets them outside and doing a useful project. I have been wondering, the hospital board has been asking for volunteers to cut the hospital lawn etc. isn''t this something the inmates could do? There are lots of projects here in the county that need doing and with budgets short of money, maybe we could utilize the jail inmates and give them something meaningful to do that gets them out of their cells and saves some money for others. - Lois Cunningham
