  • Fall forest fire hazard season

    The Kentucky Division of Forestry (KDF) is preparing for an active wildfire season. Each year, there are nearly 1,500 wildfires in the state of Kentucky, based on a 10-year average.

    Last fall, the division responded to 520 fires that burned 52,216 acres with a timber value loss of $20,642,663. The majority of the fires occurred in November.

    Wildfires in Kentucky cause damage to homes, private property, trees and landscapes. More importantly, lives are placed at risk. Not only the lives of people where the wildfires occur but also the lives of the firefighters.

  • Providing peace for the team

    William Shakespeare once said, “Blessed are the peacemakers on earth.” Lady Hawks senior soccer player Marisa Cecil is that individual on the team that provides the peace for a team that is currently 12-3-1, and the number one seed in the 18th District Tourney coming up next week.

    Cecil has been playing soccer for the last eight years. “My mom signed us up when we were younger for little league in Hodgenville, and then convinced me to play for the high school team in 7th grade,” Cecil said.

  • Foods in the freezer, is it safe to eat

    With frozen foods, sometimes it’s more a question of quality than safety.  Food and Health Communications reminds us, when it comes to freezer burn, the problem is more of a quality issue.  While safe to eat, the quality of freezer burned food may be poor.

    The safety of food in a freezer is always based on if the freezer has been kept at zero degrees or below. If there has been a power outage and/or the food has reached a temperature over 40 degrees at any time while in the freezer, the safety of the food may be in question.
