  • Kentucky residents with a Kentucky farm license plate have the option of donating $10 per plate to the Kentucky Ag Tag program.

    The Ag Tag program created by former Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Jamie Comer is entering its sixth year. The $10 donation is split three ways with the Kentucky 4-H Foundation, Kentucky FFA Foundation and the Kentucky Proud program each receiving a third of the proceeds.

    In the five years the program has existed, farm license plate donations have generated nearly $700,000 each for Kentucky FFA, Kentucky 4-H and Kentucky Proud.

  • February days in the 60s make for crowded boat ramps and golf courses during a time of year usually spent indoors.

    Everything, nature wise, seems a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Buds show on lilac bushes, green grass already grows in bunches and the sound of lawn mowers permeates an afternoon backyard barbecue.

    The rare winter temperatures may alter white bass spawning runs as well.

  •  Recently a highly pathogenic strain of avian influenza, H7, appeared on a large poultry farm in Tennessee by way of migratory ducks and geese. Currently no birds in Kentucky are infected, however, all poultry producers should take precautions and stay aware.

    The H7 virus is a North American strain that is of wild lineage, meaning waterfowl could be a source of it. Since this is the season for waterfowl to migrate north in the Mississippi flyway, there will be an increased presence of migratory ducks and geese in Kentucky.

  • March 13 – 19 is Brain Awareness Week. So, let’s think about your brain. The brain is an amazing organ. It controls all bodily functions, all organs, thoughts, emotions, memory and ability to be self-aware.  Like other body parts, it is natural for the brain to lose some of its sharpness; but it can deteriorate even more if you do not take care of it.

    According to the Alzheimer’s Association, it is important to stay physically active, to adopt a brain-healthy diet, and to remain socially active and mentally alert. 

  • Spring and summer can bring severe weather leaving behind everything from hail-damaged roofs and siding to downed trees. Often, following the storms are thieves known as “storm chasers.”

    These scam artists present themselves as contractors able to fix the homeowners problems.

    They go town-to-town, door-to door, taking money for work, underperforming or not performing at all, and then move on to the next town often before the homeowners know they’ve been ripped-off.
