  • Lightening bugs do more than light up jars for children

    As an Extension agent, the local county fair is one of the biggest events I work with during the year.

    A lot of blood (smash-ed fingers), sweat (it was hot last week) and tears (happy tears—have you ever seen a livestock barn as beautiful as ours?) went in to make our Carroll County Fair a great success. 

    It’s one of the most rewarding weeks I have had to date in this county with the amount of livestock we had, as well as the wonderful 4-H and open exhibits.

  • Summer outdoor activity will make children healthier

     We express a big “thank you” to all the youth and adults who exhibited at the Carroll County Fair last week.

    We are proud of the number of exhibits in the Exhibit Trailer entered by our youth and adults helping us create an array of beautiful exhibits.

  • Lawmakers work on bills for next year

    The interim period is upon us. This is the time between the regular legislation sessions when committees meet jointly with both Senate and House members, we discuss issues that will likely come up in January, and begin to vet legislation drafts.

    We also have the opportunity to schedule meetings throughout the state as we try to bring Frankfort to more citizens. Besides serving as chairman of the Transportation Committee, I am also a member of five other committees that require my attention on matters ranging from the budget to veterans issues.
