  • Summer Reading Program begins May 15 with kickoff

    I love movies, and many of my life mantras come from John Hughes’ movies. I am not sure what that says about me except my age! But one mantra that has stuck with me lately comes from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

    Ferris reminds us that “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”

    While 2016 could not end fast enough, 2017 is on fast-forward! Believe it or not, it is time to kick off the Summer Reading Program.

  • Kentucky Afield: Bluegill offer great late spring fishing

    It is Kentucky Derby week, a fantastic time of year. Summer is around the corner and families start to go on summer vacations shortly.

    Taking your kids to catch some hand-sized bluegill is another great aspect of this time of year in our state.

    “A lot of your bigger male bluegill are moving up into the shallows,” said David Baker, Central Fisheries District biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “It is an excellent time to take kids out and get them excited and hooked on fishing.”
