  • Come on in, the water's fine (maybe)

    We were at a friend’s house over the weekend for a cookout. It was a beautiful day, although cloudy, but humidity was low and sitting outside was rather comfortable with a strong breeze carrying across the back patio.

    Despite the mild weather, the 3-year-old daughter of other friends who also came to the cookout immediately wanted to get in the above-ground pool just as soon as they arrived. She was warned that it was still early in the season and that it wasn’t a very warm day so the water would be pretty cold.

    New Castle became the top fundraiser for the 2016 crusade — more than any other fire department or any single donor — after contributing $311,787.63.

    Twins Nash and Greyson Willenbrock, at only 12 years old, achieved something less than 5 percent of all Boy Scouts ever do — they merited Eagle Scout status after a project that benefitted the Campbellsburg Fire Department.
    The brothers planned, raised the funds and coordinated the construction of gear lockers at the fire station in Campbellsburg, the scouts said. The lockers make it possible for the firefighters to quickly and efficiently retrieve their gear in times of emergencies.

  • The idea of using a rain barrel is not all wet

    I know rain has been a problem this year from mowing lawns, making hay, planting gardens, transplanting tobacco and planting row crops.

    However, what if you could put that rain to work?

    One way individuals can use rainwater is by collecting it in rain barrels and using the collected rain water when rain becomes scarce in the summer months.

    Rain barrels offer a number of benefits such as helping reduce stormwater runoff and potentially protecting homes’, barns’ and other structures’ foundations.
