  • Happy Halloween! It is that time of year for all the ghouls, goblins, princesses and superheroes to frolic around the neighborhoods. With all that fun, let us also be safe with a few Halloween safety reminders:

    •Make sure children travel in groups and/or with an adult.

    •Give children flashlights for added visibility.

    •Accessorize with glow-in-the-dark necklaces or bracelets, or use reflective tape.

    •Check collected items before allowing children to eat them.

  • Today is Halloween and as the leaves continue to fall and the nightly temperatures dip, we know the big holiday season is just around the corner. It seems the holiday season starts earlier every year; you have probably already noticed holiday decorations on display and carols playing in stores you visit. To help reduce holiday stress and after-holiday bills, often known as the holiday financial hangover, now is the time to start preparing for upcoming holiday expenses.

  • In February, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer asked farmers across the Commonwealth to step up and make an “Ag Tag” donation, which benefits the Agriculture Program Trust fund. This is divided equally among 4-H, FFA and Kentucky Proud.Farmers had the option to donate $10 when they renewed their license plates. I want to thank Carroll County residents who purchased them.

    The 4-H Foundation is excited to announce the 4-H share for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, was $160,895. These funds benefit all levels of Kentucky 4-H.
