  • May is Kentucky Water Awareness Month, and as agricultural producers, high- quality water is very important to us.

    Agricultural chemicals are also an important part of many farm operations.  Used properly, they help produce an abundant, safe food supply.  If mishandled, however, they can contaminate groundwater, which is a source of drinking water for most residents.

    Reduce the chance that improperly used agricultural chemicals might contaminate groundwater by following these steps:

  • Have you ever thought that someone was really different than what they really were because of suppositions you made or things someone told you? Have you ever prejudged someone and then learned that they are not like what you thought — at all? Have you ever negatively stereotyped someone because of what they looked like, who they hung out with, or what they stood for and then found that they were actually a better person than what you thought they were? I mean, you even found out you liked them!
