  • Eastern Students see if they have the luck of the irish

    Students in Sarah Buckley’s class at Eastern Elemetnary School hoped to have the “luck of the Irish” in laying sometimes elaborate traps to see if they could catch a leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. Students had a few weeks to work on their traps at home with their families before bringing them into class. This is just part of a fun, educational activity that highlights problem solving. Some of the traps are even major engineering efforts, Buckley said.

  • Several Extension events will bloom this spring

    Some upcoming spring Extension events include:

    March 30 — Truth and Consequences   
    This is a new 4-H and school program designed to help freshmen students from both Henry County and Eminence understand the consequences of using drugs or alcohol.

    As a volunteer you will act as a parent or guardia guiding a student through each booth and helping them understand the consequences of actions related to drug and alcohol abuse.  

  • How to remove weeds from your land

    The grasses are starting to green up which means spring is here. However, along with the grasses, many weeds have started to show up in fields, gardens and lawns.
    Weeds can play havoc from causing issues with livestock, medical issues for people and can take over crop fields.
    From dandelions to poison hemlock, weeds can come in many shapes and colors, and many times we don’t realize what we have. In most cases, certain weeds mimic harmless flowers.

  • Seasonal allergies: Nip them in the bud

    Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, fatigue, these are just a few of the signs of seasonal allergies — also known as hay fever.
    And get ready: It looks like we may have a real doozy of an allergy season this year.
    Milder winter temperatures in places can cause plants to pollinate early. And a rainier spring leads to quick plant growth, as well as an increase in mold.  
    Allergic reactions mostly occur when your body responds to a “false alarm.”

  • Flurry of bills move on for passage

    A flurry of activity stemming from committee meetings and the passage of bills marked a short but intense week six of the Kentucky General Assembly. Although the Senate was only in session from Monday to Wednesday of this week, committee meetings still met during the later part of the week to give final hearings to a few select bills.

  • Kentucky moving closer to federal ID cards

    The 2017 session is coming down to the wire, with major legislation still left to consider on two “concurrence” days next week. After March 15, we recess until March 29 and 30, when we reconvene for our final two days to review any gubernatorial vetoes.

  • Get involved: choose not to be a silent bystander

    The most recent election and ensuing political climate has, at times and arguably, led to negative after-effects for our nation, our citizenry and even our personal relationships. However, I would like to point out one positive result of the eventful political season – community involvement.
