  • Local trees yield seeds for state nursery

    Trees planted as seedlings nearly a decade ago at Gallatin Steel will soon help produce new trees across Kentucky through their seeds.

    A crew of five from the Kentucky Division of Forestry came to the grounds of the Ghent steel plant Tuesday, Sept. 17, to gather wild plums for their seeds. They took them back to the Morgan County Tree Nursery where the original seedlings got their start.

    Morgan County Tree Nursery Superintendent Charlie Saunders said his team looks for locations like Gallatin Steel where it is fairly simple to collect seeds.

  • Fiscal holds first reading of ordinance restricting alcohol sales on election day

    Carroll County Fiscal Court approved an updated alcoholic beverage ordinance for the county that restricts its sale on election day when polls are open.

    The new ordinance is required now that Kentucky law has changed to allow localities to opt to allow alcohol sales on election days.

    Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson said he wants the county to adopt the same policy that is followed in the city of Carrollton.

    “I think we need it consistent with that,” Tomlinson said.
