  • Twenty-eight farmers from the Hardin and LaRue County area met with Farm Market Analyst Jason Moss to review and discuss the new farm environment and how producers will need to compete in the 21st century.

  • When Dr. Khue Tran leaves his Hodgenville medical practice Jan. 30, he hopes to find a little more time for himself and family outside the office.

    After being accustomed to 12- to 16-hour workdays year after year, the 60-year-old physician who lives in Elizabethtown, feels the time has come to reduce his workload.

    “When I was younger, I could be awakened in the middle of the night and be able to go right back to sleep, but each year that gets a little harder,” he said. He intends to carry a slimmer schedule while practicing at Fort Knox.

  • A pair of telephone scams that appear to target the elderly are being investigated by the LaRue County Sheriff’s Office.

    The sheriff’s office received a complaint from the daughter of an elderly woman who resides in a nursing home last week, according to Deputy Russell McCoy.

    A person claiming to be associated with a lending agency requested checking account information for the mother. The caller knew a small amount of personal information already. The originating number was either blocked or showed “unknown” on the daughter’s caller ID.

  • The Marrowbone Christian Brotherhood came to the aid of Hodgenville during the recent ice storm that ravaged most of the state. Emanuel Hostetler, a member of the group from Marrowbone, said they are a rapid response team during times of disaster. Hostetler said the group of about 20 men cleared trees from roadways and yards and removed logs jammed under two bridges in the Whitlock Hollow area.

  • What is your favorite “come together” time? They probably deal with family get together times such as Thanksgiving and Christmas and another should be the family of God gatherings.

    They can be one of the greatest gatherings of every week. Some day we will be continually with the Lord and the best way to prepare for this is to make church a priority.

  • Dwayne Whitlock retired last week from a job he truly enjoyed. For 34 years, he worked as a district forest ranger for the Kentucky Division of Forestry.

    He plans to “just kick back and take it easy for awhile,” but it’s obvious he can’t get the forestry service out of his blood. After all, he lives on a tree farm (although it is no longer on the state’s tree farm registry) and was once willing to dress up as Smokey Bear in a parade to promote the care of woodlands.

  • Early winter is an optimum time to prepare spring-calving herds for reproductive success. Adequate nutrition from about 50 to 80 days prior to calving is critical to maximizing a cow’s ability to rebreed and maintain a 365-day calving interval. If a cow gets inadequate nutrition or is thin at calving and breeding, she will take longer to come into heat and will require more services to conceive.
