  • Most of us hear early on that we should drink water for good health, but some of us may not know why it is so important.

    More than two-thirds of our bodies are made of water. It helps lubricate our joints, and without water, our organs could not properly function. Water is also essential in helping us remove waste from our bodies.

    If you do not consume enough water, you run the risk of becoming dehydrated. Dehydration can cause headaches, mood changes, fever, dizziness, rapid heartbeat and kidney problems among others.

  • Tall fescue, specifically Kentucky 31, is a cool-season grass that is widely grown throughout Kentucky and the eastern United States, because it is resistant to many unfavorable conditions including drought tolerance and insect resistance.

    However, the very reason for its resiliency is also its Achilles heel. It contains a harmful fungal endophyte that causes fescue toxicosis in cattle and horses. Affected animals get sick, have reduced weight gains, reproductive problems and other issues.

  • The Carroll County Public Library has a new 2017 Ford Transit Connect van thanks to the generosity of North American Stainless.

    Carroll County Public Library Director Hillary Arney said that NAS assistant to the president Melanie Stewart asked if the library had any outreach programs that the company could support. Arney spoke to Stewart about the need to have transportation for the expanded library outreach programs.

  • Kentucky is one of nine states whose Driver’s Licenses are no longer valid for entrance to military bases and as of Jan. 22, 2018, will not be accepted for air travel in the United States. Since the library has recently become a passport acceptance agency, the library will help you plan for any upcoming travel before there is a rush on passport services on a national level. For a first time passport or renewal please call (502) 732-7020 for details about what is required for an efficient application process. Don’t wait until the last minute.

  • General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton will host the 12th annual “It’s Sew Fine” Sewing Expo April 10-12. The Expo provides sewing enthusiasts from this region of the country a chance to enrich their sewing skills in quilting, home décor and personal sewing. The Cooperative Extension Service, the educational outreach of the University of Kentucky, Kentucky State University and Purdue University plan and conduct the regional sewing expo that has continued to grow since its beginning in 2005.

  • Five new lakes enrolled in the Fishing in Neighborhoods Program (FINs) will receive stockings of trout in Feb., a boon to anglers tired of being house bound.

    Flemingsburg Old Reservoir, an 11-acre lake in Fleming County, gets 900 trout while Leary Lake, a 5-acre lake on Lloyd Wildlife Management Area in Grant County, gets the same amount of trout. The 9-acre Logan-Hubble Park Lake just south of Lancaster in Garrard County will receive 900 trout as well.
