    An excellent overview of the University of Kentucky’s Cooperative Extension Service (CES) was shared by newly appointed District 3 Director Willie Howard to Bedford Rotary on February 14. All of us in Trimble County are aware of Trimble County CES, where it is located, and its many activities documented in weekly pages of The Trimble Banner, but usually are unaware of the vastness of this institution throughout the 120 Kentucky counties.  

  • This Friday I will be embarking upon my first plane ride. I have been on a helicopter but the chopper had the good sense to remain within eyeshot of the ground. The jetliner will be unwilling to show this courtesy. I will be in the big leagues.
    I am fully aware that it seems strange that I’ve never had this experience. After all, my mother-in-law hops on a plane to visit family on a regular basis. She’s quite the little traveler.

  • It’s normal to feel angry when a loved one dies.  It’s normal to feel sad, helpless, anxious, guilty, lonely.  Survivors commonly experience a flood of emotions. This is called grief.
    The greater the loss, the more profound the feelings of grief. Grief is not pleasant.

  • Many producers have already started planning pasture and hayfield fertilization. Pastures require nutrients to reach peak productivity. These nutrients are derived from several sources including residual nutrients in the soil, the breakdown of manure and soil organic matter, and nitrogen produced by N-fixation in leg-umes. Most importantly, nutrients are supplied to plants through the application of commercial fertilizer and lime.

  • Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.
    In his explanation for invoking a little-known rule to silence her, McConnell said, “Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
    Immediately, that became the battle cry of many women across the nation with #ShePersisted and #LetLizSpeak among the top trending topics on Twitter.

    Have you ever had to rush to the hospital in an emergency situation, only to arrive with the clothes on your back, purse on your side and car keys in hand? This scene is probably the norm for many parents, who have found themselves in a devastating situation. One family has decided to make a difference, during such a difficult time and leave a legacy for their daughter who passed from this life at the young age of 17. Kaitlyn’s hope evolved through a great deal of thought, preparation and experience.
