  • Hello once again, my friends. As I type this, it’s still in the 60s outside. Who would have thought that in November that would still be the case? As with most things it seems the out of the ordinary is becoming the ordinary. That being said, I’m sure lots of people would certainly take these temperatures all winter long.

  • A call that Tanya Supple of Carrollton nearly hung up on Saturday night because she thought it was a telemarketer turned out to be one telling her she had won a home in Norton Commons valued at almost a half-million dollars.

    In a Tuesday interview, Supplee said she bought one ticket during a telethon on WAVE3-TV, after her mother offered several times to go in on one with her. She said this was unusual because her mother isn’t one to gamble or buy tickets on raffles.

  • At just seven years old, LJ Hearn already understands what it means to volunteer and share with those who are less fortunate than him.

  • The American Red Cross encourages individuals and organizations to give something that means something this winter by making a lifesaving blood donation or hosting a blood drive.

  • The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is seeking input on the updated “Public Involvement Process for Statewide Transportation Planning and Project Delivery:  Interested Parties, Public Involvement and Consultation Process” document.

    From Nov. 16, 2015, to Jan. 1, 2016, members of the public can review the draft document and provide comments through a short confidential survey. The document and survey are available at: http://yourturn.transportation.ky.gov or by paper copy at the following locations:

  • It is that time of year again to get ready for the 4-H country ham project. By Dec. 1, those interested in the 4-H Country Ham project must let me know so that the number can be sent to the University of Kentucky.

  • Eco-gastronomy. It’s not a word you hear every day. And if you look in a dictionary, chances are you won’t find it. But to the 80,000 members of Slow Food, it is an apt description of their growing worldwide movement.

    According to the Slow Food website, the word describes “the strong connections between plate and planet,” and in an age when people are beginning to take an interest in sustainable living concepts, it’s a word you may see used more frequently.

  • Managing feed intake in calves is an important task to pay attention to, and Dr. Roy Burris, Beef Extension Professor at the University of Kentucky, offers his expertise on the topic:

    The most common problem Dr. Burris sees in feeding calves is feed bunk management. It sounds simple but it can be a real problem … one that can easily be solved by paying attention to details.

    Start with managing self-feeders.  Just dump the feed in and the calves take care of the rest, right?  Wrong.
