  • Thankgiving takes work, despite an attempt to reduce the work

    How did my grandmother do it? Well past her 75th birthday, she was still having holiday dinners at her house and with her five children and their children and spouses and their grandchildren, she fed a real house full. 

    Granted, everyone (the adults) took a dish. But just getting the house ready, the dishes out and the tea made would have done in a lesser person (such as I).

  • Services help to address mental health conditions

    One of the country’s most persistent challenges is finding ways to help those struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues beyond their control.

  • Taste-testing can add inches and pounds

    During the holidays extra tiny tastes of food may not make a difference in the short run, but little bits from now through New Year’s can result in unwelcome weight gains.

  • State’s Agriculture Water Quality Act requires planning

    The Agriculture Water Quality Act was passed by the Kentucky legislature in 1994. It states that landowners with 10 or more acres in agricultural production must develop a water quality plan.

    If you farm 10 or more acres or plan to harvest trees on 10 or more acres in Kentucky, then you are required by state law to implement an agriculture water quality plan. 

    This plan documents the best management practices you’re using to protect water resources.
