Home canning can save money, provide a sense of accomplishment and yield wonderful gifts for family and friends.

    Start with the freshest, best quality fruits and vegetables. Spoilage and loss of vitamins begin right after harvest.

  • Livestock, pets must be protected from extreme heat

    Last week, the county definitely got a taste of the summer heat. Accord-ing to our local Kentucky Mesonet system, actual air temperatures reached 90 degrees Fahren-heit or above, for five out of seven days.
