  • The months of May and June make for two of the best for catching largemouth bass. The weather is warm, but not too hot, and the largemouth bass feed heavily as warmer water temperatures increase their desire to eat.

    Largemouth bass are one of the most popular sport fish in Kentucky. Two of Kentucky’s excellent state resort parks, Barren River Lake State Resort and Lake Barkley State Resort Park, lie on two of the best largemouth bass lakes in our state.

  • Carroll County High School band and Carroll County Middle School seventh and eighth grade bands performed a joint concert called “Picnic with the Pops” May 13, in the high school gym. The bands raised money by selling tables in the middle of the gym floor and allowing audience members to enjoy their picnic lunch during the performances. Prizes were awarded to the best-decorated tables. See more pictures at www.mycarrollnews.com.

  • The Carroll County Farmers Market is in full swing. Many of our local vendors have or will soon have strawberries available.

  • Dr. Roy Burris, UK Beef Extension Specialist, offers some cattle producers some timely tips in cattle management.

    Spring-calving herd

    Bulls should have a breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) well before the breeding season. They should also receive their annual booster vaccinations and be dewormed.

    Continue supplying a high magnesium mineral until daytime temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees F.

    Improve or maintain body condition (BCS 5) of cows before breeding season starts, if necessary.

  • Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.

    4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 14. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence and responsibility, have a lot of fun and make new friends.
