  • PHOTOS: Grain bin rescue training

    Magnolia and Buffalo fire departments participated in grain bin rescue training Saturday at Fresh Start Farms outside Hodgenville.

    Magnolia Fire Chief Mike Wolford said planning for the training took about a year.

    Bryan Peace, an employee of Fresh Start, volunteered to be the “victim.”

    The firefighters used a large tube to protect the victim, who was sinking in grain, from suffocation and compression injuries.

  • ESSAY: Kentucky farmers, our American heroes

    Kentucky Farmers-Our American Heroes

    My father and my oldest brother have always been considered my heroes. They are my role models and two men I look up to and admire. I admire them for their hard work ethic, their faith, dedication, and patience. They are Kentucky farmers.

  • ESSAY: Kentucky farmers, American heroes

    What do you think of when I say heroes? Many people will answer by saying many of the superheroes or even firefighters or a policeman.

    However, most people don’t even think about farmers. Farmers are one of America’s major heroes … but they go unnoticed. How is this possible? Just think, without farmers where would you get your food? Farmers are a major hero in my life and maybe you’ll think the same the next time you pick up that shiny red apple at the store.

    My Hero, Who Is a Kentucky Farmer

    By:  Cyrus Bivens

    Ryan Bivens is the best farmer in the world. Last year he won the Kentucky Farmer award and won a new truck. This year he has combined more so he can make money and help feed the cows, horses, pigs and other animals. He has two little boys named Cyrus (me) and Avery and my momma named Misty. 

    We try to be the sweetest boys ever. They are the two farmers of all our farmland. They always farm together. Misty brings food to everyone when they are busy.
