  • Lawsuit victory for Kentucky farmers

     Last week, I wrote about the delay in the administration of the 2014 programs such as the  CAIP cost share programs which rely on Kentucky Ag Development Funds.  These funds have been available to Henry County farmers since 2001, and used to be known as the Phase I funds of the Master Settlement Agreement.  The delay was caused because some of the Tobacco Settlement Funds had not been received yet by the state.  

  • Many fun summertime activities on the way

     

    County Fair

    Enter your exhibits on Monday, June 30 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Henry County Fairgrounds!  

  • Master Clothing Volunteer recruitment deadline soon

    Thanks to shows like “Project Runway,” sewing is enjoying newfound popularity. More and more people are interested in learning how to design and make their own unique style of clothing, but have little resources to do so. Individuals with basic knowledge of garment construction, who want to perfect their craft and help others learn to sew, may find participating in the Master Clothing Volunteer program very enjoyable and fulfilling. Recruitment for the Master Clothing Volunteer Class of 2014 is ongoing through the end of June.

  • Upcoming activities throughout the county

    Cattlemen’s Association to meet

    The Henry County Cattleman’s Association will meet Monday, June 23, at 7:00 pm, at the Henry County Extension Office. Featured speaker will be Dr. Gregg Rentfrow, Muscle Meats Specialist at the UK College of Agriculture. Dr. Rentfrow will be demonstrating butcher techniques for breaking down large primal parts of a beef carcass. Also on the program will be the usual brief business meeting and the Veterinarians, FSA, FFA, and Phase I reports.

  • Yount to attend state agricultural leaders program

    Henry County’s Justin Yount will join 45 other students from across Kentucky at the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders at Murray State University June 15-19.

    Summer vacation may be only beginning for most students, but for ninety-two high school juniors the emphasis on education continues.

    These students, from 60 counties across the state, have accepted invitations to attend Kentucky Farm Bureau’s (KFB) 29th annual Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL), held in two locations this month, according to the organizers.

  • Shaking off the dirt from our feet

    When Jesus sent his disciples out to share his story, he anticipated their not being welcomed everywhere they went. He told them, “When you enter a town and are not received, go out in the street and say, ‘The only thing we got from you is the dirt on our feet, and we’re giving it back. Did you have any idea that God’s kingdom was right on your doorstep?’ [Speaking to the disciples, Jesus added,] Sodom will have it better on Judgment Day than the town that rejects you’” (Luke 10:10-12, The Message).

  • Boot brigade: firefighters outdo themselves

    Ask any charitable organization and they’ll tell you the most precious commodity to come by these days is time. Folks are much more likely to write a check or put together a bag of clothes to donate than allot any of their time to a particular cause.

    But the men and women of our county’s volunteer fire departments are different.
