2016 Allen County Reality Store

 

Along with other community businesses, Allen County Farm Bureau representatives, Amanda Carter and Teresa Martin-Law, had the honor of taking part in this year's 4-H Reality Store on April 20, 2016. 


The 4-H Reality Store is sponsored by the Allen County School's Youth Service Center and the Cooperative Extension Service. 


The purpose of the 4-H Reality Store is to increase awareness of the importance of education and its effect on the approximate 220 8th grade students who participated. The students visit the "mock community" to spend their salaries for basic living expenses (after taxes are paid). Students have the opportunity to demonstrate and learn skills in decision making, goal setting, financial planning, and career selection. 


Thank you to the Allen County Youth Service Center and Cooperative Extension Service for the opportunity to serve during this wonderful educational experience.

KFB President Mark Haney's Statement on Waters of the U.S. Rule

As we move forward in our advocacy efforts related to water resource issues, I want to point out that the revised Waters of the US (WOTUS) rule has been posted on the Federal Register. I can’t tell you how important it is to have our voices heard regarding this matter, and how vital it has been for our farmers and ranchers to get this revised rule.

Kentucky Winter Weather Proving to be a Roller Coaster Ride, So Far

Mark Twain once said, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a minute, it’ll change.” Since he first spoke those words, many other regions and states across the country have adopted that saying, including Kentucky, where it seems to be truer during this winter season than ever before.

For some reason the changing of the seasons has always fascinated me. Watching the colors of the earth change from summer to fall to winter and on to spring, is such an amazing gift the good Lord has given us.
