  • Many farmers and homeowners have been in the stages of cleanup after the storm that came through the county last week. A lot of trees took an especially hard hit, so let us take a look at the different types of tree damage and how to safely remove them.

    A common safety issue with storm damage is broken branches remaining high in the crown of trees. These are called “widow makers” and can persist in woodlands for several years after a storm.

  • This past week our area was hit by strong winds and other severe weather. Many families and individuals had homes, farms and businesses damaged, including weather damage, power outages and numerous other loses.

  • 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.
