ACHS Air & Space Academy service learning project aids airport

A WIN-WIN for students and the Columbia-Adair County Airport
Click on headline for story with photo(s)

By Keri Willis

On Thursday, October 26, 2017, the Adair County High School Air & Space Academy students traveled to the Columbia-Adair Airport (I96) to participate in a service learning project. In the classroom, these students learn about flight and engineering, however this opportunity allowed them to learn about taking pride in their community and local airport, giving of themselves without receiving anything in return. While there, students worked hard washing windows, cleaning bathrooms, pulling weeds, replacing old window blinds with new ones, vacuuming around base boards, and making airplane tie downs. This event was a WIN-WIN for both parties; the students had a great time and the airport got a "face lift"!

Poetry by Robert Stone: Shooing Elk Away

Shooing elk away:
a sonnet for the birthday of Terri Powell Haight
When coming home means shooing elk away
so you can get into your own garage
in neighborhood spectacular today,
your choice is life in wilderness collage.

When artful capturing means image caught,
close up or far, in moment or long posed,
response both unexpected and untaught
permits our seeing wonders now disclosed.

When loving life means place for all to grow,
great care for little things just starting out
concerns what flies, what runs, what swims, all know
the young must never feel the elder doubt.

When those much loved seem lovely as can be,
some aspect lovelier expect to see.
