  • Stockpiling fescue pasture beats spring hay

  • Green up your home and weed out expenses

    Between running air conditioners, watering plants and keeping the kids cool on a hot summer day, many of us are seeing our energy and water usage rise with the temperatures. By making some small adjustments to your home, you can conserve more energy and water. Not only is this good for the environment, but it’s good for your finances.
    Here are some tips for conserving energy and water at home during the warmer months:

  • Lightning: What You Need to Know

    Submitted by Bruce Owens

     

    Director, Henry County Emergency Management Agency

    • No place outside is safe when thunderstorms are in the area!

    • If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you.

    • When you hear thunder, immediately move to safe shelter.

    • Safe shelter is a substantial building or inside an enclosed, metal-topped vehicle.

    • Stay in safe shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last clap of thunder.

     

  • Stuck in the middle: caring for your kids and parents

    Many middle-aged adults are finding themselves caring and supporting two generations: their children and their aging parents. While caregiving can be very rewarding, it often can bring additional emotional, physical and financial stresses for caregivers as they try to balance a career, parenting and elder care.
