Remembering Clifton Aaron: Grew up on adjoining farm

Remembers his early years in Adair County, KY
McEva Bradshaw Mayse writes:
I am so sorry to hear about the death of Clifton Aaron, Clifton and I are the same age. We grew up together adjoining farms in Adair county. Clifton was an only child and I was one of eight chldren. Clifton was very mischievous and very spoiled since he was an only child. We always thought a lot of him. He and his family moved to Russell County and opened a store and after that we didn't see him as often. We want to offer our condolence to his family. Sincerely. McEva Bradshaw Mayse & family. - McEva Bradshaw Mayse

Is better signage the answer: Victoria Pike wonders

People just DO NOT follow the signage or the rules of the road and then when they get in trouble, they want to blame someone else. I think, the real problem out here is that we have so many signs that nobody pays any attention to any of them. Sometimes less is more. - Victoria Pike

By Victoria Pike

Last year a sign was placed at the intersection of HWY 61S and HWY 80W with an arrow straight ahead to the Cumberland Parkway.

However, we still continue to get trucks turning down 80W trying to get on the parkway and then can't get turned around when they see they have made a wrong turn.

Signage is needed at G.B. Bardin, KY 80 intersection


By Chris Knifley

Residents of KY 80 (West), Bliss, Gradyville and other popular western destinations of the County had their commutes interrupted yesterday by another semi truck that attempted to travel down G.B. Bardin Road from KY 80 West.The truck driver attempted to return to KY 80 after realizing that G.B. Bardin Road is not commercial vehicle friendly. The vehicle completely blocked both lanes of travel on KY 80 for quite some time. The episode is the latest of four incidents that are thought to be the result of a mapping issue. - Chris Knifley

What's Here at the Farmers Market, 409 Fairgrounds ST, Columbia, KY

The Farmer's Market at the Adair Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street, Columbia, KY is open this Friday morning, August 30, 2012, from 6am-10amCT.

By Holly Kerns & Prof. Jeff Scott
  1. Holly Kerns, Sano, KY - Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Bell Peppers, Hot Peppers, Green Beans, and Onions. Also: Red Potatoes. White Potatoes. Blue Potatoes.
  2. Prof. Jeff Scott of Scott's Orchards, Antioch - Yellow Delicious. Enterprise. Galas. Spy Golds. If you want apples for the weekend, come today, I won't be selling tomorrow, in town. At Antioch, we take Labor Day arduously, and observe it passionately, eschewing labor. A note: on Cooking vs. Eating Apples. Some neophyte apple cooks have learned that sweet eating apples are easy to cook. The difference is it doesn't take as long to cook a Gala as it does a Granny Smith. But cooking a Gala longer is the way some like them. They become almost like a chewy candy when they don't some off the cook stove quickly. - Jeff Scott
The Adair County Farmers Market proudly accepts Senior and WIC vouchers. For more information, contact the Adair County Extension Service at 270-384-2317. - Nick Roy, Adair County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources
