    The Trimble County High School Chapter of the Future Farmers of America recently attended the 85th National FFA Convention.  The convention was held Oct. 24-26 in Indianapolis.

    Trimble County students were joined by Carroll and Henry counties as well.  Students saw people from all over the United States, even some from Puerto Rico!  The majority of students concluded that this was the best trip they had ever been on.

  • Dry weather conditions this past summer may lead to lower soil pH and potassium levels in fall soil samples according to Frank Sikora, UK Extension Soil Testing Coordinator. Measuring the accurate levels of pH and potassium in soil after harvest will provide the proper amount of potassium fertilizer and lime needed in the spring to supplement the soil’s nutrients to provide suitable growing conditions.

  • The holiday season can bring financial stress that burdens your spirit. From purchasing gifts to traveling to planning an elaborate holiday meal, extra expenses make it hard on families this time of the year. Many families skip holiday traditions to avoid overspending. Skipping the big Thanksgiving or Christmas meal may not be the answer to pinching pennies; choosing to eat a nutritious meal can help you avoid the extra spending and extra calories.
