  • Operation: Military Kids is a collaborative effort with Kentucky’s communities to support military children, youth and families impacted before, during, and after deployment. The Family and Consumer Sciences Extension program at the University of Kentucky is helping to coordinate OMK in our state.

  • Treasure can be found in the most unlikely places and, according to the U.S. Treasury, Americans have about $15 billion dollars worth currently hiding in sock drawers, piggybanks, on automobile floorboards and under the sofa cushions. It is estimated that the average household accumulates $50 worth of change every month. It may seem like a bit of a stretch to think of pocket change as an investment opportunity, but in 20 years at 5 percent interest, that $50 in change would yield more than $20,000.

  • King David was “a man after God’s own heart.” His life was not perfect, but he loved God with all the fervor of his soul. He had one great ambition – build a great temple for the Lord. David kept this dream alive in his heart through the years. Now we see him as an old man who does not have many years on this earth.

  • Build two houses from the same set of blueprints and they should be identical. Right?

    Then, why is it, when a male and female insect of the same species have identical genetic blueprints, one is always larger than the other?

    That’s the paradox that Dr. Craig Stillwell, former LaRue Countian who is an entomologist at the University of Arizona, solved and whose solution has been published online and will be found in print publications as far away as London, England.
