  • 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.
