...Snow and Sleet Possible over South-Central Kentucky This Weekend... Wintry precipitation is possible over south-central Kentucky Saturday night and Sunday, but confidence in precipitation amounts remains low. The best chance for precipitation will be from late evening Saturday until midday Sunday, but could linger Sunday afternoon and evening. Snow and sleet accumulations of 1 to 2 inches will be possible, mainly along and south of the Cumberland Parkway. Some light ice glaze will also be possible, especially near the Tennessee line. The main impact will be inconvenience to travelers. Plenty of uncertainty remains with regard to the northern extent of the wintry weather. Residents or anyone planning travel in south- central Kentucky should stay up to date on the latest forecasts this weekend.

With the possibility of wintery weather moving into the Commonwealth this week, the Kentucky State Police (KSP) is cautioning motorists to be prepared for hazardous driving conditions.
“Winter driving can present formidable challenges including sleet, snow, slick roads, freezing temperatures and reduced visibility,” says KSP spokesman Sergeant Josh Lawson. “It can be a deadly combination if you’re not prepared.”
KSP reported that slippery roads were the contributing factor in 12,772 crashes and 69 highway deaths in 2017.
Lawson says the agency relies heavily on its social media platforms to get pertinent information to citizens when winter weather hits the Commonwealth.
“We have had great success using Twitter, Facebook and the KSP Mobile App to share winter weather updates,” notes Lawson. “We encourage drivers to download our free mobile app so they will have real time traffic updates when planning winter travel.”
To meet the challenges of the upcoming winter driving season, KSP reminds drivers to plan ahead, make sure all passengers are properly restrained, drive defensively and ensure their vehicle is properly maintained to handle the effects of cold temperatures
Other safe winter travel tips include:
●Check road and weather conditions before you leave by visiting https://transportation.ky.gov/sites/GoKY/home an online traffic, roadway information and weather portal operated by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. It’s user friendly and offers real-time information that is updated every two minutes.
●Call 511 or 1-866-737-3767 for latest road/traffic conditions.
●Refrain from calling 911 for road or weather conditions due to high call volume. Dispatch centers need the lines open to assist callers who have emergencies.
● Reduce speed in wintery conditions.
●Leave early – allow more travel time; expect delays.
●Increase distance between vehicles – the ability to stop is significantly affected on snow covered or icy roadways
●Clear all windows on your vehicle prior to travel – having unobstructed vision is vital to avoid running off of the road or having a collision.
●Ensure your windshield washer fluid is full and that you use an anti-ice solution.
●Turn on your vehicle’s headlamps. Remove any dirt, mud or snow.
●Use caution on bridges and overpasses as they are susceptible to freezing before roadways.
●Avoid using cruise control which can cause a vehicle’s wheels to continue turning on a slippery surface when speed needs to be decreased.
●Ensure your vehicle has a full tank of gas in the event you are stranded for an extended period of time.
●Charge your cellular phone prior to departure.
●Always dress warmly and keep a blanket in the vehicle.
●Carry a winter survival kit that includes items such as blankets, a first-aid kit, a can and waterproof matches (to melt snow for water), windshield scraper, booster cables, road maps, tool kit, bag of sand or cat litter (to pour on ice or snow for added traction), collapsible shovel, flashlight and extra batteries.
KSP is also requesting travelers to observe for stranded motorists. If you see or suspect that someone is stranded, contact KSP at 1-800-222-5555.
If you get stranded, staying in your vehicle is often the safest choice, says Lawson, who offers these added tips:
●Tie a brightly colored cloth to the antenna as a signal to rescuers.
●Move anything you need from the trunk into the passenger area.
●Wrap your entire body, including your head, in blankets, or extra clothing.
●Stay awake. You will be less vulnerable to cold-related health problems.
●Run the motor (and heater) for about 10 minutes per hour, opening one window slightly to let air in. Make sure that snow is not blocking the exhaust pipe as this will reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
●As you sit, keep moving your arms and legs to improve your circulation and stay warmer.
●Do not eat un-melted snow. It will lower your body temperature.
“We ask everyone to please remember to be patient,” says Lawson. “Bad weather often produces an unusually high volume of requests for service. Plus, the capabilities of first responders are limited, which increases response time.”

The Adair County Fiscal Court Budget Committee will meet Monday, December 10, 2018 at 10 a.m. in the Annex Building. This meeting is open to the public.
Columbia, Ky. (December 5, 2018) - On December 4th, 2018 at approximately 11:30 PM CST Troopers from Post 15 arrived at a residence located five miles north of Columbia on Slick Rock West Rd to assist the Adair County Sheriff’s Department and Columbia Police Department attempt to locate a possible endangered juvenile. The homeowner, 34 year old, William Corbin, of Columbia refused to allow units to search his residence, resulting in a search warrant being obtained. Upon entering the residence at approximately 3:23 AM CST , Troopers John Carlock and Levi Scott were encountered by Corbin, who became very combative. Following a short altercation Corbin was placed under arrest. Corbin’s girlfriend, Alicia Burton, age 22 of Columbia was also placed under arrest for assaulting units. The residence was searched resulting in the juvenile being located. Trooper Levi Scott charged Corbin with assault 3rd, resisting arrest and menacing. Deputy Joey Keith charged Corbin with custodial interference, assault 3rd and obstructing governmental operations. Burton was charged with custodial interference, assault 3rd, and menacing. Both subjects were lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail.
COLUMBIA, KY- More than 500 area residents attended the eighth-annual Lindsey Wilson College Christmas Carnival in the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center on Saturday.
Organized and managed by students from the LWC Recreation, Tourism and Sports Management Program, the carnival included wares by local vendors, crafts and inflatables for children, musical performances by the Lindsey Wilson College band and community church groups, and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Associate Professor of Recreation, Tourism and Sports Management Virginia Dilworth says the Christmas Carnival provides event planning and practical experience for senior students in the professional event management class – a required course for recreation, tourism and sports management majors.
“The students do everything,” said Dilworth. “They have to learn how to plan the logistics, raise the funds, get the vendors and make sure all the activities are arranged and staffed.”
Recreation, Tourism and Sports Management senior Kaylin Anderson from Colorado Springs, Co., who also helped plan the carnival last year, says planning an event like this takes a lot of time, work and people.
“It takes about a month to plan it. You don’t realize how much goes into it until you have to get all the little details together,” said Anderson.
Communication junior Kia Milam from Falls of Rough, Ky., who volunteered as one Santa’s helpers says the Christmas Carnival is a stress reliever for her as she heads into finals and the end of the semester.
“I look forward to the Christmas Carnival and I participate every year that I can,” said Milam. “It takes the weight off of finals week and it’s always fun to talk to the kids and see how excited they are about Christmas coming and seeing Santa.”
