  • 4-H focuses on leadership; new promotion with local businesses

    This year the focus of the 4-H program has been leadership. We now have an active 4-H Teen Council that has attended and will continue to attend leadership workshops and come back to our county and implement new programs.

    In November, our four teen council officers (Kinley Huesman, Andrea Searcy, Clara Tuttle and Madeline Watts) and myself attended a forum called Issues Conference. At this conference they discussed issues that face our teens today, brainstormed and researched ideas so teens could make better decisions.

  • Mild winter has pushed ahead the need to scout for alfalfa weevils

    Alfalfa weevil is the major insect pest of the first alfalfa cutting. Kentucky’s mild winter has pushed development significantly ahead so feeding by weevil larvae is appearing early.

    The tiny pinholes chewed into tip leaves by first and second stage larvae are easy to overlook. The real damage comes a few days later as the third and fourth stages feed voraciously. Individual larvae feed for about three weeks, but eggs hatch over an extended period, so damage can continue for five to six weeks.

  • Raises discussed to help gain, retain police officers

    Carrollton City Council is working to address the problem of how to retain its current police officers and how to attract new ones. In order to achieve these goals, Mayor Robb Adams and council members Mike Gordon, Kevin Craig and Jeffrey Dickow discussed at the budget work session March 21, the possibility of offering raises–either for just the police department or for all city employees. This would be in addition to the up to 4 percent across the board raise already budgeted for fiscal year 2017-2018.
