  • 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.

    NEW EVENTS/PROGRAMMING

  • CCRTA attends district meeting

    The Carroll County Retired Teachers Association met March 17, at Two Rivers Restaurant with seven members present. The minutes of the January meeting were read by secretary Donna Wallace and approved as read. The treasurer’s report was also approved.

  • Truth and Consequences educates students about results of poor decisions

    At the end of March community partners in Carroll County will hold an event called Truth and Consequences.

    The event is a program that is derived from Kentucky’s Cooperative Extension Service in Clinton County, Ky., and is used across the state in many counties. This year Carroll County’s Exten-sion Office partnered up with County Schools, Youth Services, Lighthouse and others to bring a community and school based event.

  • House majority leaders limited discussion on new charter schools

    Fifteen minutes – that’s how long the new House Majority let opponents to charter schools discuss a last-minute funding bill that will siphon money from our public schools for years to come.

    It was an 11th-hour sneak attack on March 15th, offered in the final moments of the final day for passing legislation. It was certainly not the first assault on the democratic process during the 2017 session, but it’s the one with the most potential for damaging the future of Kentucky’s school children.

  • Session proved very productive on issues

    Early mornings turned to late nights and spirited debate echoed through the House and Senate chambers as we closed in on the final days of the 2017 Legislative Session in Frankfort. A flurry of bills were sent to Governor Matt Bevin’s desk this week, highlighted by measures to empower our Kentucky teachers and create better learning environments for our Kentucky students.

  • Bill would shut down the federal Department of Education by 2019

    Should a presidential appointee and an army of bureaucrats in a remote office building thousands of miles away decide what values, morals and ideas to instill in your children? I think not. Of all the harmful things our government in Washington, D.C., does, micromanaging education is perhaps the worst.
