  • Dairy farmer talks cow health and milk quality with the Eminence Rotary Club

    Susan Coleman is similar in many ways to the members of the Eminence Rotary Club she spoke with on May 4 – working to provide a quality product to customers, according to a news release from the Southeast United Dairy Industrial Association. But unlike the typical local business, Coleman’s most important asset is her cows and her product is milk.
    The Coleman family owns and operates their family dairy farm outside of Eminence.  
    The family milks 60 cows twice a day.
    They also raise corn and alfalfa hay on the 142-acre farm.

    We noticed the other day that our office first-aid kit needed re-stocking after some band aids that had been in there for about 10 years wouldn’t stick!  
    So, when we received the following information from UK Health Care it seemed a good time to share with everyone.  
    We all should have a well-stocked first-aid kit at home, in the car and in the workplace.
    You may also want to stock a portable kit (a box or small bag) that can be taken to the site of an emergency.

  • Who has what it takes to be a disciple of Jesus?

    “I don’t want you hanging around those kinds of people!”
    For as long as there have been parents and children, children have heard this from their parents and later said it to their own children.
    Wise parents understand that their children are shaped by those with whom they spend time.
    The parental warning reminds me of the title of sermon a college friend presented to his peers in a preaching class: “Lay Down with Dogs and Get Up with Fleas.”
