For much of the time the Hunter School was in existence, it was taught by the late Ruth Allen, except for one year when Jean Dohoney (now McLean) taught the school. Though it's now on Stotts Road, formerly Burkesville Road, it is still an unforgettable landmark for travelers along KY 61 South of the Louie B. Nunn Parkway in Adair County.

Purple Martins summer here, dine on mosquitoes

By Linda Waggener

Stopping at a strawberry farm on the way to visit my grandchildren, I got some farming tips from the nicest family. They shared that their Purple Martin apartment complex draws the helpful resident birds who spend the summer eating their weight in mosquitoes.
