  • Do you like to speak in front of a group? Do you like to teach others how to do things? Would you like to learn the skills and gain the confidence to be an outstanding public speaker? Then you should participate in the Kentucky 4-H Communications Program! 4-H members can learn how to prepare and present a speech on any topic they feel passionate about. Or, if you are a more hands on person, you can learn to give a demonstration, a “how to” presentation in which you will teach someone how to do something using posters and other props.

  • If you are like every other cable consumer in the United States, you have most likely noticed a sharp increase in the cost of cable over the past decade.  As a result of these rising costs, many consumers have chosen to cut the cable cord.  Fortunately, increasingly widespread home internet access and the introduction of streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and HBO Now have made cutting the cable cord much easier.

  • Don’t let the maintenance of your tractor go by the wayside when you get busy. There’s a tendency to put maintenance on the back burner as spring and summer field activities get into full swing. Often when we do think about maintenance, it is the implement we think about, and we ignore the tractor.

    After having a wonderful year last year, the JCTC Trimble County Adult Education center is experience extremely low numbers of students. Our rankings in the state are very bad at this time. As mentioned in the last notes, we desperately need assistance from our community partners to let students know about our services.  At this time and while funds are available, we are paying for students to take the GED Test for free. We offer other testing for free, as well.  

  • Welcome to Cuidad de Mexico! We had finally arrived in Mexico City! This city has embraced mass transit. The urban planners recognized the logic of employing a system to remove a percentage of vehicles from the crowded roadways while continuing to shuffle people along.

  • Last weekend I finally watched “Whiplash,” the movie with Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons.
    Miles grew up here in Citrus County, and J.K. Simmons is the bald guy in the Farmer’s Insurance commercials and used to be the psychiatrist on “Law and Order”, plus he was in a whole bunch of other stuff.
    The movie focuses on the relationship between Andrew Neiman (Teller), a student drummer at an elite Juilliard-type music school in New York City, and the studio jazz band instructor, Terence Fletcher (Simmons).
