  • Higher education costs paid in 2016 can mean tax savings when taxpayers file their tax returns. If taxpayers, their spouses or their dependents took post-high school coursework last year, they may be eligible for a tax credit or deduction.

    Here are some facts from the IRS about tax benefits for higher education coming from Issue Number: IRS Tax Tip 2017-31.

  • This year the focus of the 4-H program has been leadership. We now have an active 4-H Teen Council that has attended and will continue to attend leadership workshops and come back to our county and implement new programs.

    In November, our four teen council officers (Kinley Huesman, Andrea Searcy, Clara Tuttle and Madeline Watts) and myself attended a forum called Issues Conference. At this conference they discussed issues that face our teens today, brainstormed and researched ideas so teens could make better decisions.

  • Alfalfa weevil is the major insect pest of the first alfalfa cutting. Kentucky’s mild winter has pushed development significantly ahead so feeding by weevil larvae is appearing early.

    The tiny pinholes chewed into tip leaves by first and second stage larvae are easy to overlook. The real damage comes a few days later as the third and fourth stages feed voraciously. Individual larvae feed for about three weeks, but eggs hatch over an extended period, so damage can continue for five to six weeks.

  • All meetings will be held at the Carroll County Extension Office, 500 Floyd Dr., Carrollton, Ky., unless otherwise noted.
