Prospective students for the new Air and Space Academy at Adair County High School starting 2015-2016 are Trevor Cowan, Harrison Rich, Isaac Little, Samuel Willis, Dylan Pendleton and Zach Wilson attended the Wing Design Competition held at the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport in Somerset this past Saturday. The new Air and Space Academy will fall under the Career Path of Aerospace Adair Counties 40th Career Path.
Next year during the 2015-2016 school year, everything is set for the Adair County High School to provide students with a 40th Career Path in Aerospace. With the excitement growing among students, Mr. Willis decided to take prospective Air and Space Academy students to visit the Wing Design Competition at the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport in Somerset, KY this past Saturday May 9th. They had the opportunity to observe the competition as well as see some awesome aircraft. Mr. Willis stated, “The students were inspired!” This is just another great reason Adair County Schools continue to be front runners in providing students with new and exciting Career Path options.
City employees are not getting paid today because there is no mayor to sign the checks.
Today is payday for all city employees but the checks are put on hold until some issues can be ironed out as to who may have the authority to sign checks. The mayor’s signature is required to pay all city bills. The office of mayor has been vacated since a ruling last Friday from Circuit Judge Judy Vance throwing out the mayoral election and mandating that a new election be held. The board of elections has voted to appeal the ruling but the appeal must be filed and a bond must be paid before the mayoral office can be filled.
The city has failed to put in place in the past an order that sets guidelines for conducting day-to-day business when the mayor is unable to perform his or her duties for any reason. Because there is no official order in place, bills are not being paid, including payroll, and city employees are left wondering who is in charge.

Kentucky State Police arrested Curry following an indictment in McCreary County.
Curry, 38, was charged with using his cell phone to induce a minor to engage in sexual acts. The incident allegedly occurred on Oct. 21, 2014. He was indicted in the McCreary County Circuit Court on Feb. 23. Following his arrest, Curry was being held in the Taylor County Detention Center on a $10,000 cash bond.
In addition to coaching, Curry is an English teacher at ACHS. He graduated from ACHS in 1995.
School Superintendent Alan Reed said Curry is now on administrative leave and issued a statement following the arrest:
“The indictment spells out alleged conduct that we would deem unacceptable by an employee of Adair County schools. The indictment does not involve any Adair County students but my number one job is to protect students. Therefore I am placing Mr. Curry on leave pending court action and within the stipulations detailed in our school board policy until there is court action on the accusation.
“This is a very unfortunate incident for us and I will be following the outcome closely,” Reed said.
