  • Cats dominate Shawe; fall to Gallatin

    The Wildcats started slow on Saturday night against visiting Shawe High School of Madison, but turned the game around in the second quarter and then pulled away in the fourth quarter to get a 13-point victory.

  • 4 Henry Countians competing for UK shotgun team

    Four young men from Henry County are competing at the collegiate level in a sport that doesn’t get much sports page coverage — shotgun. Jacob Yount, Connor Toole, Jordan Campbell and Garrett Black all are competing on the University of Kentucky shotgun team in their freshman year in Lexington.

    All four competed for several years on the highly successful Henry County 4-H youth shooting teams and now they have taken the skills they learned as boys to the next level.

  • The economic outlook for agriculture is bright

    Last week, I had the chance to attend the Commodity Day of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Annual meeting in Louisville.  State and national experts discuss new findings and directions for a variety of farm enterprises through short conferences through the day.  I was able to attend the tobacco conference, the economic outlook conference and the forage conference.  Other well attended offerings were:  dairy, equine, feed grains, beef, horticulture, forestry and natural resources. 

  • Wrap up stress and relax this holiday season

  • 4-H livestock judging opportunities abound

    4-H livestock judging is a great way for young people to learn more about the animals they love and learn valuable life skills, such as decision making and critical thinking, in the process.

    One of the great things about livestock judging is you only need to have an interest in livestock to participate. Owning livestock or coming from an agricultural background are not participation requirements.

  • Yes, it’s that time of year again

    By Candy Clarke

     

    It’s that time of year, again: the time of year when young children begin to gather information and plague everyone with  questions. Is there really a Santa Claus? Does Santa really live at North Pole? Is there really a Santa Claus house? These questions and more seem to occupy their little minds from just after Thanksgiving all the way to Christmas morning.

  • The real gift of Christmas

    It’s December and Christmas is just around the corner!  Most folks are scrambling to get it all together before the big day arrives and praying that they can keep themselves together until torn wrapping paper is thrown out, the leftovers are distributed to guests and sent away, and they can fall peacefully into bed. It is such a wonderful, crazy time of the year.
