  • Frankfort Focus - Education pays

    In the late 1990s, the state rolled out a simple but effective campaign summarized by two words: “Education pays.”

    That popular slogan came on the heels of a landmark overhaul of our public postsecondary schools and the creation of such programs as KEES, the lottery-based college scholarships that high school students earn with good grades, and “Bucks for Brains,” which added hundreds of millions of state and private dollars to our university research budgets.

  • Keeping school vehicles safe on the roadways

    Like a doctor, Nathan Wheeler, vehicle maintenance manager for LaRue County Schools, formulates a diagnosis from the symptoms shown for what’s wrong with a malfunctioning bus and then prescribes a course of treatment to make the vehicle whole.

    He showed his adeptness at finding and fixing bus-related problems by winning a timed competition sponsored by the Kentucky Association for Pupil Transportation in Bowling Green in July for school district mechanics from throughout the state.

  • Love one another

    Many things are influencing our culture today, but probably none more than a lack of love shown by believers. What would it be like if those who claim to be redeemed and changed by the power of God began to live their lives in line with the teachings and desires of Christ?

    The great commandment is “Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength and your neighbor as yourself.” Over a dozen times in the New Testament we are told to “Love one another”. The life of the believer is to be characterized by love.

  • Proper hay storage, feeding areas are important

    Hay stored outside before feeding suffers substantial losses of both yield and forage quality. Weathering losses in round hay bales are deceptively large. In fact, just a four‑inch layer on the surface can contain up to one‑third of the entire bale volume. A weather damaged 1,200 pound bale of hay would therefore actually provide only 800 pounds of feed.

    Weathered hay is much less palatable to livestock than undamaged hay.  If livestock don’t like it, they won’t eat as much.  If they eat less, they are in a worse nutritional state.
