Says require property owners to maintain roadsides

Bill Henson writes:
I have the perfect solution: require the property owner to keep the roadsides maintained on both county and state roads, eliminating a burden on the taxpayers having to pay someone to do it. I have done this for many years, wherever I lived. It doesn't require much effort and mine looks better than the ones the state or county maintains. - Bill Henson

Roundup, Crossbow, and DDT: let the good times roll

Of course, those who trust the Gummint and the EPA, tell us. "they" won't let us use it if its not safe. Thank God we live in a country where the Food and Drug Administration would never allow pregnant women to use thalidamide; but JIM has got the notion in his head that the Health Department once sprayed Downtown Columbia with DDT. He found it in the paper. - EW


In conjunction with the Fiscal Court's determination to liberally apply Roundup, Crossbow, or some other equally odious poison du jour the length and breadth of the county, the magistrates need to double down with a vote to spray the Square with DDT as was done in days of yore:

"The Council then voted to allot $50 'to help defray expenses of spraying Columbia in an effort to eliminate flies,' said spraying to be done 'at an early date by the State Board of Health under the direction of Sam Moore.' (An article in the July 13 edition headlined 'Columbia Given DDT Bath Monday' read in part: 'Columbia's business section received a DDT bath Monday morning in a State-County health program to eliminate flies... This is the third year Columbia has been sprayed with very satisfactory results... [A] U.S. Public Health Service power spray mounted on a truck was used to spread the DDT.'" (Quotes excerpted from the Adair County News, June 8 and July 13, 1949; additional text by a CM contributor; used with permission.)

Better yet, perhaps the current magistrates prefer to hit the trifecta by voting to mandate this USDA dictum for all Adair County homes:

"[R]emove all packages of food and spray all the interior surfaces of the cupboard or pantry with a 5 percent DDT solution. The crystal deposit which remains after the spray has dried will be effective for several months, killing the insects coming in contact with the deposit before they have time to lay more eggs." (Excerpted from the Adair County News, April 21, 1948.)

Gentlemen, by all means--let us spray.

Sharon Spinks favors Fiscal Court using Crossbow if need be

Sharon Spinks writes:
Reply to spraying with Crossbow or Roundup: I have been on the farm all my life. We have used Roundup until Crossbow came out 40 plus years. Its better than having snake infested weedy areas or unable to see ditch lines, especially out on county roads. Two weeks ago a young mother and her infant hit a ditch that was grown up with weeds and almost flipped her vehicle luckily they were not hurt. If the ditch line could have been sprayed this might not have happened. There are a lot of places you cannot get a tractor to mow spraying is a necessity in these places or let someone get hurt or killed. The county roads are not like city roads with concrete everywhere. The Adair Co. Fiscal court is doing what is necessary for the safety of people as well as keeping our county beautified. -Sharon Spinks

Rickie Williams: A simple solution to the sewer problem at GRAS

Tax dollars are tax dollars, he says.

Rickie Williams writes:
I could be all wrong...certainly have been before...but it seems to me if the Animal Shelter needs a sewage pump then the Youth Development Center probably uses one as well...both institutions are down in the same relative location.

Is it not possible to get the sewage from the Animal Shelter over to the Youth Development Center via a gravity feed (hopefully) or a smaller type pump?

Tax dollars are tax dollars. The objective ought to be to use them wisely.

Letter: Crossbow EPA Toxicity for Fish

Jon Halsey writes:
From the EPA: Fish and Aquatic Life - Triclopyr TEA is practically non-toxic (LC50 > 100 ppm) to bluegill sunfish (L. acrochirus), rainbow trout (O.mykiss), and fathead minnow (P. promelas) in acute studies. Triclopyr BEE is moderately to highly toxic (LC50 0.1 to <=10 ppm) to these same species under similar conditions (1). The major metabolite, TCP, is moderately toxic to fish (LC50 >1 to >=12) including several species of salmon and the previously mentioned fish species (1). The elimination half-life in crayfish (P. Clarki) is 7 to 17 days. There is no evidence for bioaccumulation in this aquatic invertebrate (12).

Wonder if that includes "Dry Land Fish" which is the only kind I've been able to catch along the road sides? --jon halsey, Knifley

Writer suggests No Spray signs if county mass-sprays poisons

A simple truth: Maybe you don't care what happens to the environment, but in the future your children might? Heather Evans writes in suggesting a compromise if worse comes to worse.

By Heather Evans

I also disagree with the use of mass spraying.

I can see where it might be useful around rocks, drainage pipes, or where no mower can possibly go.

However, if mass spraying will be used, I urge home owners who don't want thei property sprayed to put a No Spray sign up. They would then be responsible for keeping the tall grass at bay. In the community where I live everyone's property is groomed. Usually, the mower does not need to trim in front of our houses, etc.

There is a drift effect (with herbicide use) and I would hate to lose plantings that have been there almost 15 years. I do not use chemicals or weed killer of any kind.

Just because Roundup etc is on the market, doesn't mean its safe. Drain cleaner, alcohol, and cigarettes are unsafe, yet they are on the market as well. There are other options rather than taking the chemically, unsafe, unknown long term effects route. Maybe you don't care what happens to the environment, but in the future your children might?

Fiscal Court looking at lift pump to handle GRAS sewage

Strange situation: But county-owned animal shelter is not on CAUD sewer
While sewers are on the CAUD AGENDA for tonight, there is no mention of this particular issue. SEE ALSO: Adair County Fiscal Court Meeting, Sept. 10, 2013 Report

By Ed Waggener

An item CJE Ann Melton addressed at the Tuesday, September 10, 2013 regular meeting was the cost of the septic tank treatment which was supposed to solve its problems. A contract to pay $300 per month to put more chemicals into the system did not solve the problems. Fiscal Court will be considering a lift station to pump the waste from Green River Animal Shelter, GRAS Jim Blair Drive, up to a sewer main of Jamestown Street/KY 55.

Odd as it seems that this facility, located in the City Limits, is not on CAUD sewer, a call to Jennifer Carter at Columbia/Adair Utilities District, confirmed that the Animal Shelter is not charged city/sewer.

We have not yet found out why the two entities, Fiscal Court and Columbia/Adair Utilities District, have not worked out an arrangement to provide sewage at the shelter. If anyone knows the answer or has comments, they are welcome. -CM

Effects of runoff on aquatic life. Anyone know the answer?

Some questions yet to be answered on widescale use of herbicides: Does anybody know what the effects of herbicide run-off is on streams and aquatic life? The tonnage of herbicides used in Kentucky is? By agriculturists? By State and Local Road Departments? Are there any ongoing studies of local streams by any of colleges or university science departments? It would be interesting to know. - EW

As the decision on whether to conduct spraying is debated by the public, there is a modest amount of concern about herbicide and pesticide runoff and the kill-off of aquatic life. Research on the subject led to the discovery of a nifty piece by James Bruggers in "Watchdog earth," on the Courier-Journal website: Army Corps launches Green River Watershed study

The article contains a great video on the Green River, which Bruggers says is "worthy of large scale conservation." The video should be of interest to all readers of, whether they have concern about herbicides or not.

A decision onmass scale herbicide spraying in Adair County is to be made by January 2014, maybe earlier, by the Adair Fiscal Court - CJE Ann Melton (See her statement: We are losing the war against vegetation), Harold Burton (1), Daryl Flatt (2), Sammy Baker (3), Perry Reeder (4), Billy Dean Coffey (5), Joe Rogers (6), and Billy Rowe (7).

Joyce Coomer issues a challenge to Adair Fiscal Court

Click on headline for complete article, with paragraph on Toxic Hepatitis and list of links on Crossbow and Crossbow type chemicals

By Joyce Coomer

Even though the EPA doesn't rate Crossbow as being as toxic as Roundup, would any member of the Fiscal Court or any County Employee drink a glassful of Crossbow in front of witnesses -- witnesses other than other county employees???? And have the Crossbow poured into the glass by the first person passing by on the street . . . and do this in the open, on the courthouse steps, where anyone passing by can witness it???
