THREE IN A ROW:  BAND WINS NATIONAL CROWN
Adair dominates Class A at Bands of America
By Wes Feese
Media Relations, Adair County Schools
The Adair County High School marching band concluded its season
in impressive fashion last weekend with a Class A National
Championship at Bands of America (BOA), in Indianapolis. 
This is the third consecutive year the band has taken home the
BOA trophy.
“These kids just never quit,” says Director Tom Case. 
“We are so impressed with their determination, and they are
deserving of being the Class A champion.”
Adair County took the field at Lucas Oil Stadium for prelims
Thursday night at 10 p.m. and turned in one of its top
performances of the season.  The effort was noted by judges,
who named Adair a semifinalist Friday night, ranking 35
th out
of the 100 bands in attendance and first among Class A bands.
“We thought it was a very solid performance – probably the best
of the year up to that point,” says Asst. Director Austin Bralley
about Thursday’s preliminary show.  “Then we come out for
semifinals early Saturday morning and had, without a doubt, our
best run of the year.”
Despite a 7 a.m. performance time Saturday that required students
to wake up at 3:30 to prepare, the energy was high and there were
no glitches throughout the morning show.  “When they do well, they
know, and they knew coming off the field that they had done really
well,” Bralley says.
After a short nap back at the hotel, the squad returned to the stadium
Saturday evening for the awards presentation.  In addition to taking
home the Class A Grand Championship, Adair also swept first place
in all three categories:  best music, best visual, and best general effect.
“There’s definitely been some adversity throughout this season, but
these students did an excellent job of overcoming it,” Bralley says. 
“We worked all season to improve the show’s design, and the final
product was exactly what we wanted.”
It takes plenty of work and dedication to outdo so many of the country’s
top marching bands, and Bralley credits this year’s senior class for setting
the bar high for the rest of the squad.  “It’s a small group, with only 10
seniors, but they’re very talented,” Bralley says.  “They’ve won at least
one – and some of them have two – state titles, and three national
championships.  That’s a pretty impressive run.”

Russell County Sheriff Clete McAninch and Deputies
have been trained to use Naloxone for the emergency
treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose.

Naloxone HCI, known as NARCAN, is a nasal spray that
counteracts the life-threatening effects of opioid overdose.
Since most accidental overdoses occur in a home setting,
NARCAN was developed for first-responders, as well as
family, friends and caregivers.

Sheriff McAninch and Deputies were trained by Russell County
EMS Paramedic/Instructor Zach Burton on how to administer
NARCAN with a Mucosal Atomization Device (MAD).

The Russell County EMS is providing the training and MAD
devices for all city, county and state law enforcement officers
serving Russell Countians. The training and MAD devices for
law enforcement officers, as well as MAD devices and a one
year supply of NARCAN for the Russell County EMS, is being
paid for through a grant from Partners In Prevention (PIP).

Jeff Hoover’s selection as Speaker of the House was assured
as the new House Republican super majority voted in a caucus
meeting to nominate the veteran laawmaker as their leader.

Hoover, recently elected to his 11th term, has served as the
top Republican Leader since 2001, and will officially be elected
Speaker of the Kentucky House of Representatives on January 3,
2017. Following his record eighth-term election to House
Republican Floor Leader last year, he is the longest serving
Republican Floor Leader in Kentucky’s history. Hoover stands to
continue a long family history of service to Kentucky as both
his father and mother were elected to the same district he
serves, House District 83.
