Several acres of ground were burned on Mon. following a fire in Adair County.
On Monday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. the Adair County Fire Department along with assistance from the South Russell Fire Department and the KY Division of Forestry battled a field and woods fire at 6472 Highway 55 South at a residence owned by Bruce Hadley. There were approximately 40 acres of land burned and 19 firemen on the scene for 2 hours.
The baby food & spaghetti sauce jar collection was a success!
Adair Co. High School students needed at least 200 jars to be able to create their innovative artwork and they received around 250. The school will keep everyone posted as to their progress.
Thanks again from Ms. Willis, Ms. Wimmer, Ms. Spoon and all their students!
Volunteers will be out in force next week to spring clean highways in Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Lincoln, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell and Wayne counties. The Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) announces that Adopt-a-Highway Spring Clean Week is March 17-23.
More than 700 groups participate in Kentucky’s Adopt-a-Highway program, which was established in 1988. Volunteers clean approximately 4,800 miles of roadside annually, setting an example of responsible environmental stewardship.
Any permanently established business, association, community or public organization, or government entity can adopt a stretch of highway.Volunteers adopt two-mile sections of highway under a two-year, renewable contract with the Transportation Cabinet.
Litter pickups are held at least four times per year or as many times as necessary to keep adopted areas reasonably litter-free. The Cabinet coordinates three annual clean-up efforts.
Groups interested in becoming members of the Adopt-a-Highway Program can find details and district coordinator information at http://adopt-a-highway.ky.gov/.
