Today's Features

  • The mild weather this winter has many thinking it will be an early spring across Kentucky.

    The earlier, the better for anglers, who by late February are like sprinters on their marks waiting for the starter’s pistol to fire.

    Some of the best fishing of the year is right around the corner. The new license year is, too. It starts March 1.

    For $20, an annual resident Kentucky fishing license serves as a ticket to good fishing opportunities, but also as an investment.

  • 4-H has an opportunity to raise funds for Carroll County and statewide 4-H programs through the Kentucky Ag Tag Donation program.

    Since 2012, Kentucky Farmers have the option to make a $10 voluntary donation when they purchase or renew their license plate. Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles will again equally divide the amount raised among 4-H, FFA and Kentucky Proud. As an individual that makes the voluntary donation for your farm vehicle, you help 4-H grow strong leaders for tomorrow, advance agricultural education in Kentucky, and promote Kentucky farm products.

  • It seems like every day you hear of someone being diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is the number two cause of death in the United States behind heart disease. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. (Medical News Today) If detected early enough, many types can be successfully treated. Early detection is a key.

  • Last week, we talked about farm vehicle requirements on the road. This week, let us focus on the maintenance of our tractors.

    There is a tendency to put maintenance on the back burner as spring and summer field activities get into full swing.

    A simple front-to-back routine every week can help you remember key maintenance points. The manufacturer will have suggested-intervals for most of the maintenance tasks, so you will not have to do everything every week, but developing a weekly routine will prompt you to ask if it is time to do specific tasks.

  • As I was thinking about this article I began to focus on the Power of Dreams. Dreams are the ideas, goals, quests, desires God put on the inside of us. As we grow older we sometimes feel our time of dreams have passed, lack of fulfillment, un-met projects, wavering passion or we are simply running out of time.
