  • Filling in while filling vacancy

    Turnover in the workplace is always difficult. While a position is vacant, others on staff have to fill in the gaps left by the recently-departed – on the job, not this world.

    Invariably, someone has to work overtime, not everything gets done and sometimes things get missed, either unavoidably or accidentally.

    Have you ever heard a situation summed up in one word that couldn’t be put any better in a lengthy speech?

    In my 19 years as a reporter, I couldn’t count the number of “Times” that’s out there on the banner of periodical print products. It’s probably also not news to readers that more than a few publications named “the news” exist.

  • Grazing school helps livestockers maximize potential

    Henry County’s rolling topography has always made this a great place for raising livestock, partly because our land is well suited for grazing and making hay.

  • Celebrating a century of service through Extension

    For the past 100 years, the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service has focused on improving the quality of individual and family life through education, research and outreach. The history of the Cooperative Extension Service is evidence of its growth and sustainability in Kentucky.

    In 1922, the first formal “home demonstration clubs” were formed in Kentucky. In 1939 Bina Baird Foree started the first club in Henry County at Franklinton and the second one at Jericho. Today, the organization is known as the Kentucky Extension Homemakers Association.
