  • When word got out at Eminence High School that biology and chemistry teacher Dawn Welch had been diagnosed this summer with breast cancer, members of the volleyball team decided they wanted to do something to show their support.

  • Hay availability in Henry County and Kentucky may be short this winter because of weather events—last year’s drought, this year’s early record rainfall, and this year’s summer drought—both hay quality and yield are down.  Some effort at conservation and planning will help make hay last longer through the winter.

    Store hay inside a barn or other structure where it will remain dry.  Hay testing is the first step to knowing how much will be necessary to meet the nutritional needs of the animals to be fed, from horses to cattle to goats.

  • At the end of the school year, third grade students at Eminence Elementary were given a cabbage plant seedling. Students could plant the seedlings and track growth over the summer. Holden Hedges took the challenge. Along the way, he completed a weekly log to record watering and checked for any bugs. He grew a nine-pound cabbage plant! Holden has been entered as the class winner and is now in a drawing for a scholarship. The program was sponsored by Bonnie Plants.
