  • Retired Carrollton Fire Chief Randy Tharp made a promise to his daughter, Melissa, that he would walk her down the aisle at her wedding, planned for Dec. 28, 2013. The family talked about moving the wedding to an earlier date, but Randy wouldn’t hear of it – even though he had been battling lung cancer for nearly three years.

    He kept his promise. He walked Melissa down the aisle and attended the reception afterward. He even took time to admonish a friend at the wedding, who he felt wasn’t taking care of herself.

  • In 2012 and 2013, Gallatin Steel donated a total of $86,800 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Louisville and Lexington.

Through dozens of volunteer hours, the committee spearheaded Gallatin’s golf scramble fundraisers, procured hundreds of “wish list” items, and provided hands on assistance.

  • Getting your financial habits in order is good to undertake as we begin a new year. Last week I discussed the importance of analyzing your spending habits and creating a good spending and saving plan to stretch your money and make it go further.

    No matter your income, you can learn ways to live within your means. Without a plan, you may charge for purchases, thus increasing the money you owe. Or, at the end of the month, you may find yourself with no accessible cash.  This can cause undue stress and hardship to you or your family

  • It has been a cold start to the week and making sure our livestock are adequately cared for in these cold temperatures is a concern for all livestock producers.

    In addition to being mindful of feeding high quality forages and supplemental grain to provide energy and keeping waterers flowing, we should also take a look at another pest of winter: lice.

    Lice are cold-loving pests that can spread when animals bunch together in response to frigid temperatures.
