  • The Funeral Directors Association of Kentucky celebrated their 134th annual convention at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville on June 28-30. The convention was well attended by funeral directors, suppliers, and their families. Attendance at the Annual FDAK Convention provides funeral directors with a forum to receive and exchange information. Members return home with new ideas that allow them to better serve the families in their communities.

  • Carrollton City Council and Carroll County Fiscal Court hosted its Fourth of July Celebration a little late this year, due to rainy weather. The event was held July 9, at Point Park and featured music, fireworks, food, vendors and inflatables.

  • Dr. Les Anderson, UK Extension Beef Specialist, offers ideas on how to convert year-round calving to a controlled breeding season.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers. A uniform, heavier, and more valuable calf crop is one key reason for keeping the breeding season short. Plus, more efficient cow supplementation and cow herd health programs are products of a short breeding season.

  • Tomatoes are now in season, and soon you might have more on your hands than you know what to do with. A great way to use excess tomatoes, peppers, onions and other ingredients is by making salsa you can enjoy fresh now, or preserve for use throughout the year.

    To safely can salsa at home, you have to use proper food preservation techniques. If preserved incorrectly, the salsa could not only taste bad but also result in botulism, a deadly food-borne illness caused by toxins produced by bacteria in the canned food.
