Garbage truck on fire on the Natcher Parkway NB near MP 10

By Gredg Meredith
News from Kentucky Transportation Cabinet

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (1:54pmCT, Aug. 8, 2013) - A garbage truck is on fire on the right shoulder of the Natcher Parkway Northbound near MP 10. Both Northbound lanes are currently closed while the Southbound lanes remain open. Crews are heading to the scene to assess at this point. It is possible that a detour for Northbound traffic will be established that utilizes US 231 from Bowling Green to Morgantown, depending upon closure duration.

Overcorrection believed a factor in Campbellsville, KY crash

The Campbellsville Police Department investigated a vehicular collision which occurred US 68 near the west limits of Campbellsville, KY.

By Anne Sanders

At approximately 1:15amET, Thursday, August 8, 2013, Officer Bryon Simpson responded to a reported vehicle collision on US 68 near the west limits of Campbellsville. The investigation revealed that Cody Baxter, age 23, was operating a 2003 Chevrolet Blazer, traveling west on US 68. Based on the investigation by Officer Simpson, it appears the vehicle left the paved portion of the roadway onto the gravel shoulder and that the driver then overcorrected in an attempt to re-enter the roadway and lost control.

The vehicle then skidded across US 68 causing the vehicle to over-turn multiple times before coming to rest on the east bound shoulder. The driver was wearing his seat belt, which prevented his being ejected from the vehicle. The collision remains under investigation. From Campbellsville Police Department, 100 Terri Street, Campbellsville, KY.

BJ Hagy finds AC Schools receiving tobacco subsidies ironic

By BJ Hagy
Personal Commentary

To Ed, Residents of Adair County, and Columbia:

I find it somewhat ironic that our Adair County Board of Education has received monies from the US Government, via US taxpayers, in the form of Tobacco Subsidies over a number of recent years.

It appears that while we make our schools and the grounds they're located on into a "Smoke-free or Tobacco-free" zone we are still involved with tobacco in our own local government. Why??? Isn't this sending mixed signals to our young student population that we are trying to educate to stay away from tobacco products? It's a point that needs to be examined nonetheless.

Here's a link to the EWG site, which gives the statistics for the Adair County Board of Education's receipt of subsidy monies: USDA Crop Subsidies for Adair Co Board Of Education, 1995-2012.

Epicurean Kentuckian: On making mind-blowingly delicious foods

She's trying many variations on bacon & tomatoes this year - especially with avocado. But when avocados are unavailable, she found fresh torn basil is a great substitute. With a comment on portion control.
Epicurean Kentuckian: Bacon Spinach Pasta by Pen

By Tami Wilson
A favorite guest Epicurean Kentuckian writer

Looks tasty! I've been very addicted to the wonderful flavor combination of bacon and tomatoes this year, and have been making bacon, tomato, and avocado (and a plenty of hot sauce- try lots of different kinds) to fill omelettes- also wonderful with torn fresh basil leaves if you don't have avocado.

I've also been having a lot of huge salads of baby greens or spinach with freshly-cooked torn/chopped bacon, tomato, avocado or basil, olive oil and lemon juice to dress it. Mind-blowingly delicious, IMO.

Making foods that you love and are nutritious can make you dread the occasion when you have to eat out, because of time or energy constraints.

An aside to Pen: I admire your portion control! - Tami Wilson

The pictures which accompany include one of my school pictures, adn the other two are the way I look now. Lonnie W. Coomer

Thanks, Lonnie W. Coomer. We'll try to have even more on the next reunion.

By Robbie Harmon, Director of Pupil Personel
Adair County School District, 1204 Greensburg ST, Columbia, KY

The following information will be sent home with students in letter form during the first few days of school:

The Adair County School System has always been committed to the safety of all children. As we begin a new year, we continue to look for more ways to ensure safety for every student. Throughout the summer many of our school staff members have participated in various trainings and meetings concerning school safety. Throughout these meetings a couple of common themes arose. As a result of the valuable information learned from these trainings we are going to implement a few changes that will continue our efforts in placing student safety as a main focus and priority.

Where to eat? Epicurean Kentuckian Bacon Spinach Pasta?

Comments re photo 50764 Epicurean Kentuckian Bacon Spinach Pasta Doug Peterson writes:
Like many of your other photos published on these wonderful dining delights, you often fail to identify who made and/or which dining place it can be enjoyed at. Photos are great, but telling us where we can eat it is even more important. --Doug Peterson
Good point - Actually, when an item from a restaurant makes the Epicurean Kentuckian, we mean to always tell when it's a restaurant's dish, and give the location. And if the restaurant is an advertiser of ours, we mark it advertising. In other cases - actually in most - the dishes are created by Pen or another private citizen, which we hope will inspire others -- even restaurants to create or offer in their stores. And if there's confusement - which we enthusiastically eschew - why, we'll certainly try to do better. Thanks for pointing out the need for more clarification.

Scenario in Sycamore surmisable situation if cow is small sort

Comments re article 61151 MIKE WATSON What a Tree

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

I cannot attest to the particulars of the stories but the possibility of these occurrences due to the size could have been very possible.

I've seen hollow sycamores on tributaries to Green River that would have been of sufficient size to allow for the cow scenario.

It could have been possible particularly if it would have been a cow of smaller stature, such as a Jersey.

Our forefathers had an affinity for Jerseys because they were small, docile, consumed less feed and had a high butterfat content which was desirable to our forefathers.- Billy Joe Fudge-

MIKE WATSON: What a Tree!

From over 108 years ago

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

Big trees, fact or fiction? The following short item was tucked away in the February 1, 1905 edition of The Adair County News. This may have been a pair of tall yarns, but may be just be factual. Maybe B.J. Fudge can weigh in on the likely-hood:
Hon. W.F. Neat was in the News office Friday and while talking about large sycamores, stated that many years ago Green River bottoms were famed for the tremendous size of this timber. One one occasion Mr. Neat, then a boy, was fishing and heard a noise that excited him and he went in search of the cause. To his surprise he found a cow fully 20 feet up a hollow sycamore that had blown down and which belonged to a widow of that section. He noticed the family and the cow was released by the use of an ax. Some one had store some turnips in the log and the cow went after them so far that she was unable to extricate herself.

On another occasion Mr. Neat stated that a man, while cultivating his corn in the bottom near where Mr. Phil Knifley now lives, his horse fell into a hollow sycamore stump, the earth having formed even with the top of the stump, and there died.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Wonder where the days went

Wonder where the days went
- a generic birthday sonnet but first for Dan Jacobson
I have no facts but someone wanted verse
to celebrate your yearly trip around
the sun and them and all your loves diverse
so here are thoughts I found on common ground.

The gift most wanted is attention paid
encouraging the best that we can be.
The giver loved the most is one who stayed
close by when much to see seemed but debris.

There are no certain words to show delight.
The specialness is always in intent.
We needs must mark by season, day, and night
or wonder where days went as time we spent.

Awake each day and seek another joy.
Avoid the sham employments of decoy. - Robert Stone, 7 August 2013
The next earlier Robert Stone poem: Still are worth the chance a sonnet.
