Marsha Walker: Agrees with Chris Oliver's thoughtful comments

By Marsha Walker
Personally commentary

I really appreciate Chris Oliver's thoughtful comments. In my opinion, he is 100% correct. I don't think having alcohol legally available in our community will turn people into alcoholics.

Adults will consume alcohol if they choose to do so, in the amount they want. We're just missing out on the benefits Chris mentioned. Alcohol is already available for purchase in our community. I'd rather it be purchased legally than illegally. --Marsha Walker

Wm. M. Feese, Jr. - Time has come to say goodbye

The time has come to day goodbye
by Wm. M. Feese, Jr.
The time has ome to say goodbye
and keep myself away
to think about the good times
I've had most every day

I wish to thank each one of your
for owning property here.
You've made my life enjoyable
as I've worked from year to year

The job I had was not a job
It really was refreshing
to see the people that I saw
each day was such a blessing

Some came to talk of taxes;
others needed papers.
Some had genuine concerns;
while most just wanted favors.

To say my job has been a drag
would be so very wrong.
It's been a pleasure and a joy,
to serve you all along.

I thnak you now with heart and soul
for blessing me this way.

You've showyour you love and your support
by voteing Feese for P.V.A.
Thank you. - W.M. FEESE, Jr

Chris Oliver: Local laws affect how I spend my money

'Please don't be confused by this submission. I am not predicting amazing tax windfalls for our county if we go "wet". I am not predicting a slew of new companies and restaurants flocking to Columbia at a moment's notice. However, there will be financial benefits for our community, there will be obstacles removed for potential new business ventures, and there will be very little impact on the amount of the product in question being consumed within our county's borders.' - CHRIS OLIVER

By Chris Oliver
Personal commentary

I've always enjoyed the Kentucky Derby, even before moving to the state 5 years ago. However, I find myself experiencing an increased level of enjoyment and pride in the event since calling Kentucky, and specifically Adair County, my home. Tomorrow we'll be hosting a handful of friends at our house to enjoy some fellowship and the Derby together. In true Kentucky Derby tradition, I'll be offering my guests Mint Juleps. This isn't Earth-shattering news by any stretch, but the event has provided us with a great example of how our local laws will impact where I spend my money.

KY Afield: Striped bass coming back at Lake Cumberland

(This is the tenth installment of the Spring Fishing Frenzy series of fishing articles. The series - detailing productive fishing opportunities across Kentucky - will continue weekly until early summer).

By Lee McClellan, Associate Editor
Kentucky Afield Outdoors / KY Fish & Wildlife

FRANKFORT, KY - A jointed Thunderstick or Redfin lure slowly worked on the surface along a main lake bank on Lake Cumberland at 3am in late April may provoke a reaction from a striped bass that feels like it could rip your arm off your shoulder.

The savagery of a surface strike from a striped bass on a late spring night on Lake Cumberland is one of the outdoor experiences that sears into the brain, leaving a lifelong scar that itches every April.<

Jon Halsey: Heartening - writer admits error, takes responsibility

We sure are overdue for that kind of forthrightness. - JON HALSEY

By Jon Halsey
Personal Commentary

I thought that "Little Brother" was just following the new political protocol: "If the story line makes our point, the facts don't matter."

It is heartening, however, to see that he broke from the modern mode and had the courage to admit not only the mistake but to take full responsibility.

Maybe the Waggener clan could apply a little "strong arm" pressure and get him to commit to the 2016 hustings. We sure are overdue for that kind of forthrightness.

May is Bike to Work Month. May 16, 2014 is Bike to Work Day

By Gary Rose

May is National Bike Month and the biggest day of the month is Bike to Work Day. In 2014, Bike to Work Week will be May 12-16, with Bike to Work Day on May 16, 2014.

Whether you bike to work or school; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.

More than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it's not surprising that, from 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent. - Gary Rose
