  • Sunrise Volunteers to dedicate hymn books

    At our recent board meeting, we updated our active and inactive volunteer list and went over some of our planned activities for residents. We also discussed our need to replace some of our hymn books which are showing signs of wear and tear.

    We are going to obtain 11 new hymn books. In the back of the books we are going to dedicate each book to the memory of a recently deceased resident, Bobby Morris.
    The board thought this was appropriate since Bobby was a good Christian and well-liked by staff, volunteers and residents.

  • COLUMN: Extension – 100 years and counting

     As Extension celebrates 100 years of serving the public, everyone recognizes the tremendous changes that have occurred in rural living and across the country in the last 100 years.

    The first county agent in LaRue County, J.W. Jones, began working on June 15, 1920, almost 94 years ago. We have his first annual report on file.

  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors: The fish are there and they will bite

    FRANKFORT, Ky. – The cold, muddy water coursing through many rivers in Kentucky right now brings another round of dread in anglers. This situation seems depressing, but for anglers with level 10 cabin fever after this long, dark winter, it is good news.

    When the rivers clear and stabilize, the sauger and walleye fishing will take off downstream of Green River Lake, Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.

  • 4-H: It isn't just for kids

    There may be some confusion related to the history of 4-H as we celebrate the 100 years since the establishment of the Cooperative Extension Service. 4-H in Kentucky celebrated 100 years back in 2009. 

    4-H is a part of the Cooperative Extension Service, however 4-H in Kentucky began in 1909 with the organization of the Fayette County Corn Club. In just eight years, the organization spread to 42 counties and included 3,887 young people.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Without forgiveness, there is only judgment

    Have you ever had someone say to you, “Well, it’s your fault?”

    Why is it we don't want to take responsibility for our own actions? Isn’t it much easier to blame someone else? The Bible is very clear on this matter. 

    Each one of us is responsible for our own decisions, behaviors and relationships.

    Adam was warned by God not to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or he would die. Adam did eat, but blamed someone else.
