Students create Thankfulness Wall at ACHS

By Morgan Harvey
ACHS SOS Peer Leader

Sources of Strength is a new program at Adair County High School. The mission of SOS is prevention of suicide, violence, bullying and substance abuse by training, supporting, and empowering both peer leaders and caring adults to impact their world through the power of connections. SOS focuses on spreading hope, help and strength messages and intentionally avoids focusing on sad, shock, and trauma stories normally associated with this type of work.

A large group of student and adults at ACHS and ACMS received training last spring though a grant the school system received through the Kentucky Department of Behavioral Health. Since that time, peer leaders and adult mentors had organized several campaigns promoting happiness, positivity, caring and kindness throughout the schools.

Today at ACHS, peer leaders incorporated Thanksgiving into their latest campaign through the creation of a "Thankfulness Wall." Students were given the opportunity to write down three things that they are thankful for on a daily basis. ACHS students quickly filled the wall with reminders that no matter how bad things may seem in the moment, if we take the time to reflect on our blessings there is always a lot to be thankful for.

Feds officially vacate authorization for pipeline plan

By Ben Kleppinger, The Advocate-Messenger

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has officially vacated its order authorizing abandonment of a 964-mile natural gas pipeline. The "order vacating authorizations" from FERC was issued on Monday, bringing to an official end a plan to repurpose the pipeline to carry "natural gas liquids," explosive byproducts of fracking in northeast shale fields.

Houston-based energy giant Kinder Morgan had wanted to reverse the flow of the pipeline and transport NGLs to the gulf coast, where they could have potentially been bought for use in manufacturing plastics. About 20 miles of Tennessee Gas Pipeline No. 1 run through Boyle County, which was a hub for opposition to the pipeline proposal.

Springfield police arrest potential shooter

By Thomas Novelly, Louisville Courier Journal

Police in Springfield, Kentucky said they prevented a mass shooting Monday by arresting a man who was prepared to attack a manufacturing plant with a fully automatic AR-15 rifle and four other guns to "get the job done."

Matthew Smith, 37, of Lebanon, was sitting in his car outside the LB Manufacturing plant in Springfield around 4pmET, according to an arrest citation. When an officer approached Smith, he tried to aim a Glock handgun at the officer's chest, according to an arrest citation. The officer wrestled the gun away and handed it to a nearby officer before pulling Smith out of the car and to the ground.

Carol Perkins: My own personal Hallmark movie

Previous column: Carol Perkins: Nothing like homemade

By Carol Perkins

I'll take a day, or maybe two, depending on what transpires, to live inside a Hallmark movie. I'll be the young woman on her way from the city to a small town to encourage the owner of an inn to sell to a conglomerate to make room for a mall.

However, I am stranded in a snowstorm, rescued by the local veterinarian, driven in his old truck to the inn that I'm planning to help sell, and find myself surrounded by joyful people decorating for Christmas. (They don't know why I'm here!)

Prayers for Mitzi, please say every prayer you know to say

By Linda Waggener

Our little warrior, Mitzi Bault, is in another battle with cancer - she has been on this walk now for eleven years - please join her family and friends in prayers. Please say every prayer you know to say in her behalf.

After a day of tests, she posted in her nightly journal, "As many know, I have battled cancer for many years. I tried to stay positive. I have beaten the odds twice so now I am going to try to do it again. I am going for three times... Sometimes itís hard to keep going... I will get through this. I am going to get through..."

To those of us close to Mitzi, we are amazed at her. She is our sunflower, bringing in rays of sunshine wherever she goes, brightening our spirits, lifting us up. She embodies my favorite quote, "Go into the world and preach the gospel, and when necessary, use words." With her words and deeds every day, she preaches peace and love and mutual respect and forgiveness and keeping on going, no matter what.
