  • On Monday, we again marked our nation’s reverent observance of Veterans Day; the 87th anniversary of the Armistice ending the carnage of World War I.

    This year, as in years past, our nation finds itself at war. Young men and women, volunteers in the uniform of our armed forces, continue their unbroken legacy of service to our nation; a service conceived during the revolutionary cause of our fore- fathers.

  • Working for the Cooperative Extension Service is a dream job for me.  Each day brings something different and exciting—an insect to identify, a farm to visit, eggs to incubate, or some agricultural “mystery” to solve.

    I was fortunate to know Extension before I ever got this job because I grew up in it, but not all young people thinking about a career in Extension have that type of experience. Therefore, the University of Kentucky Extension Summer Intern Program is just the ticket to get hands-on experience in Extension.

  • Last season when then-junior Michael Hall set the Carroll County High School scoring record with 21 goals, head coach Ben Crutcher thought soccer could not be beat.

    But Hall proved it could be. By a lot.

    In his senior season, Hall scored 36 goals and dished out 13 assists – tying Brandon Stewart’s school record set last season – and helped his team win back-to-back 31st District championships. He will hang up his black-and-gold Panthers jersey as the all-time scoring leader with 70 career goals.

  • When deciding on a new bull for your cattle operation, remember there is no one-size-fits-all approach.  Buying a bull that fits your needs and operation is very important and decisions will be different for every farm.

    Look-ing at all the traits for each bull you are considering and determining which one best fits your needs is the right approach.  Using tools such as Expected Progeny Differences will help in the decision-making process. Two traits often mentioned by Kentucky producers among the most important are calving ease and temperament.

  • Amy Hinman was named September’s employee of the month at Carroll County Memorial Hospital.
