Today's Features

  • By Shelby Wilcoxson

    Today in 4-H we talked about people getting sick and ways to keep from getting sick.  One way to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands.  You sneeze on yourself then you start touching things and spreading germs.  

    The first step in washing your hands is to get warm water and apply soap.  When you get cold water your pores shrink and trap the dirt and germs.  When you use warm water the pores on your skin expands.  This allows you to get the dirt and germs out.  

  • The holiday season is generally a time for celebrating and enjoying the company of friends and family. Unfortunately, it is also a time when people eat more high-fat, high-calorie foods than they normally would. If you have diabetes, it is sometimes difficult to  maintain your blood glucose within the target range set by your doctor.  Some careful thought and planning can go a long way to help you manage your blood glucose and still have a good time around the holidays.

  • Fall is the time to think about all those flowers we associate with spring: daffodils, crocus, and other easy-to-grow flowering bulbs. If you aren’t growing spring-flowering bulbs in your landscape, you are missing out on some easy-to-grow plants that provide early color to your garden, according to Rick Durham, UK Extension Specialist in Consumer Horticulture.

     A large group of people, about 60, gathered at the Trimble County Public Library last Tuesday as the library board met to decide whether or not the proposed November 15th closing of the library would be permanent or temporary. Many suggestions were made on how to keep the library operating until tax money came in. The final comment before adjournment was an invitation to attend Thursday’s fiscal court meeting and learn what they could do to help.
