  • SAVVY SENIOR: Employment resources available for older job seekers

    Dear Savvy Senior,
    What resources can you recommend to help older job seekers? I’m 62 and have been out of work for nearly a year now and need some help.
    Looking For Work

    Dear Looking,
    While the U.S. job market has improved slightly over the past year or so, challenges persist for many older job seekers. Fortunately, there are a number of free online tools and in-person training centers scattered across the country today that can help you find employment. Here’s what you should know.

  • COLUMN: Christ finished the race and won salvation for us

    Grace and peace to you from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • COLUMN: Mud: A tangible reminder that we need purification

    It’s been raining a lot lately and mud seems to be everywhere. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to get things muddy and how hard it is to keep things clean? Some people even have a mudroom at home, a room to kick off muddy boots or shed muddy clothes before going into the rest of the house, but I bet it doesn’t work that way all the time.

  • Church Happenings — Week of March 6

    Shelby Christian to host art and craft show
    Shelby Christian Church will host an art and craft show on March 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    The show features 90 booths and several local vendors, as well as vendors from Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

    Finchville Baptist Church recently announced its March and Easter-related events:

  • COLUMN: The age-old question: The chicken or the egg?

    Yes, the age-old question about which came first springs to mind this time of the year as the stores start to stock the shelves with chicken raising paraphernalia. We have a total of 130 chicks in brooders in the basement and garage. There are two sets including 3-week-old Brown Leghorns and Araucanas intended to join our laying hens once they have fully feathered and another set of 100 Freedom Rangers intended for the pasture of the nut grove where they will range and grow to broiler weight for a May 7 appointment at the processors.

  • COLUMN: Control pasture flies using ear tags

    Insecticide-impregnated ear tags are a popular means to control pasture flies (especially horn fly). Tags are inserted in late spring or early summer, and the fly control program travels with the animal. However, using tags containing the same class of active ingredient for several consecutive seasons can select for populations of the horn fly that are resistant to a whole class of related insecticides. This shows up in the form of a shorter than normal period of fly control, but lab testing would be needed to confirm resistance.

  • CLERK'S CORNER: March is farm tag time; office awarded tech grant

    Spring is a busy time for all of us, and the County Clerk’s office is no exception. March is farm tag month, and is traditionally our busiest time of the year. Remember the voluntary $10 donation included in the registration fee benefits the local 4-H, FFA and Kentucky Proud programs. You have the choice to opt out of this donation if you would like to. We appreciate your patience as the lines may be somewhat longer than normal. We will strive to give you the excellent customer service you have come to expect.

  • COLUMN: Wildcats seem impressive against ‘grocery store baggers,’ not so much against NCAA competition

    What a difference a few months can make. Remember back in October when preseason magazines hit the shelves and most of them had this region as ground zero for basketball dominance? Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky were ranked by many pundits as the top three teams in the country and it harkened many fans back to the ‘70s and ‘80s when all three schools were consistently national contenders.
