Food Checkout Week in Hopkins County

 

Hopkins County Food Check Out Week was a huge success.  Local Students from the Madisonville North Hopkins FFA Chapter was present at Kroger along with the County Administrator Kimberly Faulk. Information was handed out and we had a wonderful display to show. There was a PSA that ran during the week and all the food that was in the basket was later donated to the Hopkins County Christian Food Bank. Kimberly Faulk also did food baskets and took them to local officials such as the Mayor of Madisonville David Jackson’s office pictured, each high school and each Kentucky Farm Bureau insurance office.

Statement from KFB President Mark Haney: Repeal of the 2015 Waters of the United States Rule

Repeal of the 2015 Waters of the United States rule is a victory for clean water and clear rules. As farmers, we share the goal of protecting the nation’s water, but the 2015 Waters of the United States rule was unreasonable and unworkable. It made conservation more difficult and created huge liabilities for farmers.

Down the Backroads:  Truly Connecting in a Connected World

My youngest son recently moved back to college with the help of good ole mom and dad who graciously allowed him to try apartment living for the first time instead of a dorm.  After getting everything into place, his first request (actually it was a complaint) was to help him get logged on to the supplied WIFI.
