  • Public notice should remain in newspapers

     If one Kentucky legislator has his way, many Kentuckians could lose access to public information related to their local governing bodies.

  • Stretch of horrid weather time is perfect to plan for fishing

     With much of Kentucky covered in a sundae made of snow topped with a crust of ice, fishing season seems millennia away.

    The sun gets higher in the southern sky with each passing day; it is only a matter of time before this horrible weather pattern breaks. Use this dark and cold time to prepare for the inevitable coming of the spring fishing season.

    Get your gear organized. While we change lures or rigs in haste while fishing, most of us just shove things such as bags of soft plastic lures, jigs or leaders into the first pocket in our tackle bag we find.

  • COLUMN: Can you keep up your daily walk with God?

     Physical walking is one of the best exercises for our heart and lungs, but spiritual walking is very beneficial to our soul. “Enoch walked with God” (Genesis 5:22).

    Moses raised the question to the Israelites, “What does the Lord require of you?” The answer was “to fear the Lord, to walk in all His ways, to love Him and to serve Him and to keep His commands.” All this was to be done, “with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deuteronomy 10:12-13).

  • God, guns and good ol' boys

     CALHOUN – Once the host of a top-rated outdoor TV show, Chuck McAlister has hunted everything from waterfowl to wild hogs.

    But now, in a new role as head of evangelism for the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the self-avowed redneck has set his sights on a new target – wayward men, particularly those who share his affection for the outdoors.

  • COLUMN: Managing the calving season

     Providing sound management during the calving season (especially in years like this one) can mean more live calves and more profit. Some reminders on what a producer can do to limit calf loss include:

    Separate first-calf heifers from mature cows. Calving difficulty can run as high as 30 to 40 percent for 2-year-old heifers compared to just 3 percent for mature cows. Place them in a small, accessible pasture near a corral where assistance can be given if needed.
