KWOA Award Presented to HCFB Board

 

The Kentucky Woodland Owners Association (KWOA) presented an outstanding service award plaque to Harlan County Farm Bureau Board of Directors. On August 15 at the Harlan County Farm Bureau Annual Picnic held at the Frank Couch building, Frank Hicks, President of the KWOA, presented this award to Don Miniard, president of Harlan County Farm Bureau. This award recognized the Board of Directors' hard work in promoting good forest management in Harlan and surrounding counties. Hicks said, “This is not an annual award that we would give away. Our association is aware of the work that the HCFB board has been doing. They have helped the local woodland owner have a better understanding about forestry development and management.” The KWOA’s mission is to promote economically and environmentally sound forest management and advance the forestry skills of Kentucky woodland owners.

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.
