KY DoC launches new aftercare program for inmates in recovery

By Katherine Williams

Burgin, KY - Kentucky Justice Secretary John Tilley joined with the state Department of Corrections (DOC) today to announce the first ever aftercare program within a Kentucky prison, providing a new system of support, mentoring and peer accountability for offenders in recovery from a substance use disorder.

The innovative program, known as SOAR (Supporting Others in Active Recovery), focuses on relapse prevention, education, and reentry skills based on the Therapeutic Community Model, a group-based, residential approach to treating substance abuse. The evidence-based strategy seeks to reduce recidivism and set the stage for long-term recovery before inmates return to communities.

With a commitment to sober living, participants live together in a single dormitory located at Northpoint Training Center, a medium-custody prison in central Kentucky. The goal is to provide a steady continuation of care as inmates complete their sentences along with other programs and curriculum.

Letter: J.O. Russell Bungalow

Ann Curtis writes:
303 Jamestown Street is the home that was built in the early 1900s by J.O. Russell, who also built the Russell Building on the Square (which, sadly, is in such disrepair today).

According to the Adair County News, in September 1906 a sidewalk was put down in front of the residence.

Fiscal Court hears citizen requests on Crocus Creek, Westlake

By Linda Waggener

In the public comments section of the Fiscal Court meeting June 9, 2019, Ricky Thompson and Frank Robinson asked for attention to a challenge on Crocus Creek in Southern Adair County. They said a new land owner has blocked an entry point that has been used by the public to access Crocus Creek for many years.

The road has been removed from county road service, however Magistrate Daryl Flatt said that he has had experience in his district and just because the road is no longer designated for service, that doesn't necessarily mean a change in ownership of the land. The two guests requested help from magistrate Sammy Baker who said he is working on it, and from Fiscal Court, in resolving the problem peaceably.

Jerry Burton appeared before Fiscal Court and asked for an accounting to the public from the Westlake Regioinal Hospital Board as to where the debt stands at this time and what amount of money is in the bank account. He believes that the ten cent tax on the dollar may be an illegal amount. He asks for an accounting to the public.

Carol Perkins: It's all in who you know

Previous column: Drop the mic and move on

By Carol Perkins

My passport was due for renewal and with less than six weeks between my last trip and a future one, I worried about getting it in time. Off to a post office I went, and the clerk took a new picture gave me the application to fill out, and I mailed it the next day.

Thinking all was well, I panicked when I received my application back from the agency a week later because I had not included my old passport. Nowhere on the form did it direct me to enclose the old one. I went back to the post office and asked to expedite my passport. He said that was no problem, and he sealed the envelope and sent it priority mail. I kept asking if I needed to send more money, but he said it was on the package.

That made no sense until two weeks later when I called to check on my passport status (waiting on hold for twenty minutes) and discovered that it had not been expedited because I had not paid the extra sixty dollars.

Letter - warning about Asian Longhorned Ticks

Marie Freeman writes:
I do believe I have found an Asian tick on my property. I am sending it to the CDC for identification I'm not sure if I will receive a response or not. These ticks are like no other, in the USA. The reason they self clone.

I think everyone in the county needs to be aware of this new species that has invaded the United States. You can go online and research CDC Asian tick. They've already been identified in Kentucky, I've just never seen one here on my property until this last week.

This from the CDC website. What we know about Asian Longhorned ticks - Not normally found in the Western Hemisphere, these ticks were reported for the first time in the United States in 2017. Asian Longhorned ticks have been found on pets, livestock, wildlife, and people. The female ticks can lay eggs and reproduce without mating. Up to thousands of ticks may be found at a time, or on an animal. What we know about Asian longhorned ticks in the U.S. In other countries, bites from these ticks can make people and animals seriously ill. As of June 24, 2019, no harmful germs that can infect people have been found in the ticks collected in the United States. Research is ongoing.

Researchers are looking for these ticks to find out where they live. As of June 24, 2019, Longhorned ticks have been found in Arkansas, Connecticut, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. --Marie
