  • I am planning a brunch for about 50 friends to be held in about a month. I am working on my menu now, trying to decide just what to have from the hours of 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

    I want it to be very simple, but really nice. I don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking and I also want some simple things that friends can help me prepare because I don’t want them to have to work too hard.

  • Patrick Underwood, Gallatin Steel’s Environmental Process Coordinator, has been recognized by the Steel Manufacturers Association for his personal and professional commitment to promoting environmental education and responsibility.  Underwood will be receiving the SMA’s Environmental Excellence Award at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.

  • The oppressive arctic conditions that prevailed throughout the Ohio River Valley and along the river’s tributaries in the winter of 1918 continued late into January. By Jan. 20, many rural and small community schools had been forced to close due to extreme cold and deep snow. It was almost impossible for students on the farms to make their way to the school houses.

  • Kentucky law designates Feb. 15-April 30 as spring forest fire hazard season. During this time, it is illegal to burn anything within 150 feet of any woodland or brushland between the daylight hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. The law is intended to prevent forest fires by allowing outdoor burning only after 6 p.m. when conditions are less likely to cause a wildfire to spread.

  • Do you have pictures on your camera and you are not sure about the next step?

    We will be talking about saving and transferring pictures to computer. The next steps would be editing pictures and then getting them printed. We will be covering those topics this Saturday, Feb. 26 from 10 a.m. until noon at the Extension office.

    Please bring pictures and if you want a laptop computer. I will have a couple of extra computers for the attendees to use.
