  • Economy, environment benefit from Kentucky forests, healthy trees

    There is a saying that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, and the second best time is now.

    Earlier this spring, state leaders joined with local Scouting organizations and utility companies to begin bringing that saying to life, and to do it in a way no other state has ever attempted. Their long-term goal, known as “Kentucky’s 20/20 Vision for Reforestation,” is to plant 20 million seedlings over the next 20 years.

  • Resident wants long-term camping back

    A Carrollton resident asked City Council to revisit the issue of long-term campers at 2Rivers Campground.

    Nicole Dunn said she is an avid camper, and it was her impression and that of other fellow residents that the previous long-term campers did not look too bad. We have properties in town that need to be cleaned up and we’re worried about a few trailers? she asked.

    Eight campers at $800 per month would be $6,400 of positive income for the campground, she said.

  • Prevention can help avoid rashes, itching from chiggers

    Summer is officially here, and with it comes some pesky bugs that like to make us itch. For this week’s column, we are going to take a closer look at one of these insects that can really make us itch: chiggers.

    Chiggers are actually the immature stage of certain mite species, and are found most often in overgrown bushy areas. They also congregate in shady, humid areas near stream banks, under or around shade trees or in berry thickets.
