  • Summer internships offer chance to work at an Extension job

    Working for the Cooperative Extension Service is a dream job for me.  Each day brings something different and exciting—an insect to identify, a farm to visit, eggs to incubate, or some agricultural “mystery” to solve.

    I was fortunate to know Extension before I ever got this job because I grew up in it, but not all young people thinking about a career in Extension have that type of experience. Therefore, the University of Kentucky Extension Summer Intern Program is just the ticket to get hands-on experience in Extension.

  • Nation must stay committed to veterans

    On this day, in this month, 94 years ago, the guns of World War I went silent and our nation remembers this moment each year by recognizing the service and the sacrifice of our country’s veterans.

    During the recent government shutdown many numbers were thrown around. But there is one number that stands out and it has nothing to do with the debate over the federal budget.

     More than one a day. That is how many members of our active-duty military, National Guard and Reserve forces have committed suicide over the past year. Simply put, we are losing more servicemembers by their own hands than we are by the enemy in Afghanistan.

  • Take a moment to pay respect to state veterans

    He may have been referring to the members of the Royal Air Force, but when British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few,” he could easily have been talking about our own country’s veterans.

    They make up less than 8 percent of the U.S.’ population, but it is no overstatement to say our lives would be very different without their countless contributions and sacrifices.

  • Take the opportunity to honor all who served

    As I sit here, I think about all the honors and privileges I have been given over the years of my life – getting to do things I dreamed of as a young boy.

    How many people ever get to, actually, live out their dreams?

    Well, I can say that I did. I started playing in the dirt as soon as I could crawl. When I was a little boy, my mother would take me to Fourth Street to see the soldiers getting on the buses to go serve their country.
