  • A lot of hay has been baled recently. So, hay growers are reminded of a few things about hay fires and how they can be prevented. When hay is baled too wet, hay or barn fires can be a result. However, hay fires can generally be prevented if hay is baled at appropriate moisture (not always easy to do) and the temperature of recently baled hay monitored.

  • Natural Resources Conservation Service in Kentucky is accepting applications for the Grassland Reserve Program. Although GRP applications are continually accepted, the application ranking cutoff date is June 1.

    The Grassland Reserve Program is a voluntary program offering landowners and operators the opportunity to protect grazing uses and related conservation values by conserving and restoring grassland resources. 

  • Ah, spring on Lincoln Square. Colorful Knockout Roses, sunny daylilies and greenery in the corners, luscious big tea roses and azaleas at the Christian Church, pots of flowers in front of stores and on corners and the pocket park spruced up. Sort of looks like it was planned, doesn’t it?

  • The LaRue County Early Childhood Council sponsored training on April 18 for 32 local child-care workers. The six-hour training was held at the Extension Service office and covered topics on teaching strategies for social and emotional development and styles of disciplining or positive guidance.

    Child-care workers learned how to work with children who have challenging behaviors. This is to help a child’s self esteem because a misbehaving child is a discouraged child.

  • LaRue District Judge C. Derek Reed participated in the 2009 District Judges DUI and Traffic Safety College held April 1-3 at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park in Jamestown by the Administrative Office of the Courts.

    The judges attended sessions on field sobriety testing, traffic stops and search and seizure arrests, drug-related DUI crimes and the latest issues surrounding driving under the influence, and issues involved with DUI arrest, arraignment, pretrial suspension and sentencing.

  • It looks like tobacco growers will have to hold field-ready transplants for a few days or more this year. Often this coincides with periods of humid cloudy weather. Densely packed plants in a humid environment is a recipe for big problems. Below are some suggestions for holding plants until field conditions improve.

    Maintain a low level of fertility: Reducing fertility levels to the 25 to 50 parts per million nitrogen range will slow growth and reduce the amount of rank green leaf material that may be more susceptible to bacterial rots.
