  • Passing the budget is job No. 1

    During even-year legislative sessions, no other bill gets more attention than the budget, which is understandable, because no other bill directs so many of the General Assembly’s priorities.

    Even so, that doesn’t undercut the importance of other legislation also set to become law, and as my colleagues and I prepare to wrap up the 2012 Regular Session this coming Thursday, there are more than a few of these bills that deserve mention.

  • We should support our local farmers

    Last week I met and talked with a few local farmers. I interviewed tobacco and corn farmer Mark Roberts who works on a large production scale; and people on the smaller scale like Ed Nelson, who sell at local farmers markets. Nelson considers being called a farmer a compliment.

    Paul Tokosh is in between the large and small production scale. He works 16 acres growing pears, apples and asparagus. He also grows blackberries, strawberries and blue berries. He sells to Hilltop produce in Shelbyville and goes to several other counties before also selling here.

  • Start planning your estate today

    Have you ever asked yourself the “what if” questions? What if something should happen to me today? What if something should happen to my spouse or business partner? What if I have an accident that leaves me incapacitated?

    No one likes to think about these questions. But the answers are very important to your surviving family members. Taking the time to answer those questions can provide peace of mind. It also can mean that your wishes for asset distribution following death will be followed.

  • Beef finishing workshop set for May 1

    The Cooperative Extension Service is finalizing plans to hold a forage based beef finishing workshop at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 1, at the Shelby County Extension Office.  The information packed session will include lunch. Please hold the entire day for the session.

    With more and more emphasis on locally grown food in our region, it fits that locally finished beef demand will increase.  This workshop focuses on type and breeds of beef, forage quality and animal nutrition, age of animal, taste, marketing strategies, and many other factors.

  • Spring break trip nets ‘valuable experience’

    Though they spent their spring break in Florida, it was a working trip for the Henry County Lady Cats.

    After opening the 17th Florida Beach Bash with a 9-0 loss to Heath, the Lady Cats dropped four more games in the tournament against strong competition. It was, coach Jon Kasten said, a valuable experience as the team moves forward.

    After the Heath game, the Lady Cats faced Franklin, Ohio, in a side trip to the Coco Beach Expo on Tuesday, April 3.

  • Warriors off to 5-0 start

    Just five games into their season, the Eminence softball team is off to its best start in years — 5-0.

    “So far... we’ve made very, very few mental mistakes,” head coach Bill Covington said. “I can take a physical error a whole lot more than I can take a mental error, and we really have done a good job this year.”

    Covington said the Warriors are running the bases intelligently and making the right defensive throws. So far, he said, he can think of just one play “where we didn’t do the right thing.”

  • Cats split spring break games

    The Henry County baseball team would have had a busy spring break with four games scheduled, but Mother Nature wiped out two of those games. The Cats split the remaining two games against a pair of Louisville schools.

    On Tuesday, April 3, the Wildcats took on Christian Academy of Louisville for the second time this season. The Cats lost this meeting 9-6 despite a spirited seventh inning rally.
