    Kentucky Afield Outdoors

    Kentucky deer hunters will have lots of ground venison for chili this winter, roasts to bake with onions, celery and vegetables, and back strap chops to grill during the summer.

    That’s because a record deer harvest was posted for the 2012-13 deer season, which ended with the close of archery season Jan. 21.

  • There were three people in heaven who decided one day to play a round of golf at the Heavenly Country Club.

    The first man stepped up to the tee, hit his drive, and watched as it headed straight for the water hazard. Just as the ball was about to land in the water, he raised his club, pointed it out over the water, and the waters parted, allowing the ball to land on dry ground. He walked out between the two columns of water and hit a perfect second shot, right in the middle of the green. One of his partners said, “Wow, good shot, Moses!”

    This means that eligible property owners will not pay taxes on the first $36,000 of their assessment.

    Carroll County tax rates for 2013 haven’t been set, so an exact amount of savings to persons receiving the exemption cannot be determined.
