  • 4-Hers invited to ‘ham’ it up during annual project

    One of the areas that 4-H offers to its youth is the country ham project. If 4-H members are interested in learning this process, a contract must be signed and in my hands by Dec. 8. 

    Please call the Extension office and request a contract or stop by and pick one up. The contracts also will be in each school office for the child to pick up. It is so exciting to see the young people as they learn some “back in the day” projects. Here are some facts about curing “green” hams the 4-H way.

  • Thanks to all who contributed to food drive

    Editor:

    A BIG thanks to the community for another outstanding Scouting For Food Campaign. This past Saturday, about 60 Scouts and community volunteers braved a cold morning to hit the streets and pick up food, bring it back to the food pantry, count, sort and finally put it on the shelves – a big undertaking. The results were outstanding – 4,589 items collected.

  • A brief history of our nation’s holiday

    If Benjamin Franklin had had his way, it’s possible that the centerpiece of most Thanksgiving meals this week would not be the turkey.

    While he did not actually recommend it replace the eagle as a symbol of our nation, he did, in a letter to his daughter, believe that the turkey’s qualities were more virtuous.  He called it “a true original of America” and “a bird of courage.”

  • Conference provides inspiration and ideas

    As I was sitting in my chair among hundreds of other audience members on Nov.14 at The Northern Kentucky Convention Center, I witnessed a plan being unveiled to tackle the heroin epidemic in the Northern Kentucky region. During the next hour and a half, I was so inspired by the efforts of individuals who have the same goals and aspirations for their larger communities, as I do for my small community – to simply stop the heroin epidemic in its tracks.

  • Tragic events 50 years ago leave mark on state, nation

    On Friday, our country will mark the 50th anniversary of one of its most tragic events: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

    Like the attack on Pearl Harbor before it and 9/11 after it, Nov. 22, 1963, is one of a handful of dates in history where those old enough to remember it will never forget where they were and what they were doing.

    What many Kentuckians may not know about that day, however, is that a future resident of our state broke the news of President Kennedy’s death to the world.
