  • SPARK Academy students at Carroll County High School Andrea Searcy and Katie Osborne are hosting a 5K run/walk as a service project. The event, called Scarrollton Skeleton 5K Run/Walk will be held Saturday, Oct. 28, at the back entrance of General Butler State Resort Park. Registration begins at 8 a.m., and the race begins at 9 a.m.

    The cost is $25. T-shirts are included, and medals will be awarded to the top three racers in each age group: 14 and under, 15-30, 31-49 and 50 and older.

  • The length of day relative to the time of year never changes. As the nights lengthen slightly with each passing day in fall, the overnight temperatures drop and pull heat from the top layers of lakes.

    This development is already underway, but will peak over the next month and make excellent fishing conditions for black bass.

  • The Kentucky Soybean Board partnered with the University of Kentucky to develop an app to help Kentucky soybean producers to accurately calculate and compare the price offered by elevators, considering delivery costs and high-moisture penalties for grain as it is harvested.

  • Stockpiling pastures allows cattle producers to take advantage of late summer and early fall growing conditions to obtain high quality forage for late fall and early winter grazing. If you pay attention to a few management details, you will be able to use stockpiled pastures to provide quality forage late in the fall and into the winter.
