Owner makes false claim
Dog is shot;
wrong person
is blamed
By: Dave McBride
[email protected]
The initial explanation for
a dog being shot in Rockport last Friday turned out
to be less than truthful and
the Ohio County Sheriff’s
Department was forced to
waste three days on what
proved to be a useless investigation.
Sarah Peach, 133 Church
Street in Rockport, according to School Resource Officer Chris Stafford, was
right in the middle of the
charade.
“Peach said she had just let
the dog out of a shed in order
for it to relieve itself when a
gold-colored car pulled up,”
Stafford said. “She said the
passenger-side window was
rolled down and that three
shots were fired by Phillip
Jackson, also of Rockport.”
Two of those shots, the officer said, hit the dog.
Stafford said Jackson later was located, interviewed,
and denied the claim made
by Peach.
“On further investigation,
we were unable to find any
shell casings in the car and
by talking to other witnesses and evidence from a
neighborhood surveillance
camera, we were able to determine that Peach’s statement was false,” the officer
said. “Peach later admitted
she lied about seeing Jackson shoot the dog.”
That false statement, Stafford said, hindered the sheriff’s department’s investigation.
“We spent three days going in the wrong direction,”
he said. “We focused our attention on Jackson for three
days, when Peach knew all

“The Evans family is excited to be the stewards of our
Little Free Library on behalf
of our community and neighbors,” she said. “We would
like for everybody to visit the
facility on Simmerman Street
and observe the simple way it
works.”
Currently, Hartford’s Little
Free Library has about 100
books, including children’s
books, western novels, books
of interest to women and general reading.
“Our library is stocked with
books donated by members of
my family, along with others,
and we think the variety will
be of interest to our neighbors
and friends,” Smith said. “All
you have to do is visit, look
until you find something that
strikes your fancy, take it

Those taking books from the
Little Free Library can keep
them, return them or return

“Most healthy adults may
be able to infect others before
symptoms develop and up to
five to seven days after becoming sick,” she said. “Some
people, especially young children and those with weakened immune systems, possibly can infect others for an
even longer period.”
Fortunately, the problem
hasn’t surfaced in the county’s school system, but there
likely is a reason for that.
“We’ve been out of school
for the past two weeks,” Ohio
County High Principal Greg
Decker said Monday morning. “If there’s an epidemic
out there, it likely will surface in our schools as the students again start circulating
together.”
Decker said it appeared that
a majority of his school’s faculty was on the job Monday.
“And that’s a good sign,” he
said. “If the flu’s going to hit,
it usually hits us older folks
first.”
Decker said Monday’s attendance numbers showed 80
students out for one reason or
another.
“That’s about normal for us,”
the principal said. “We usually run at about 92 per cent
attendance.”
Ohio County School Superintendent Scott Lewis echoed
Decker’s findings, saying the
entire district stood at about
93 per cent on Monday.
“We had two schools - Wayland and Horse Branch that were lower than the district as a whole,” Lewis said.
“Wayland was at 90 per cent
and Horse Branch was at 88
per cent.”
The superintendent indicated no panic will set in unless
the entire system drops to below 90 per cent in attendance.
“Naturally, we will close the
system should the flu outbreak call for such action, but
that hasn’t happened since
I’ve been superintendent,” he
said.
Religion also has been taking it on the congregational
chin because of the flu bug.
Wade Rowe, a member of
the Independent Missionary
Baptist Church, said there
normally are 35 to 45 parishioners on hand for Sunday
services, but that number was
down to only 12 last Sunday.
And Lonnie Hawes, a member of the Cool Springs Baptist Church, said about 40
normally can be counted at
his church on Sunday and
that the number was down by

“And it’s possible that some
of those present had the flu,”
Hawes said.

The wounded animal was taken to Veterinarian
Coy St Clair and later removed to an animal clinic in Louisville.
“I was told that one of the dog’s legs might have

And the officer said there is an actual suspect
in the shooting but has not yet been arrested or
charged.
Peach was charged with falsely reporting an incident. Jackson was absolved of any wrongdoing.
Andrew Carnegie built - and continue growing.
Smith said the local library’s goal is to focus on
both children and adults.
“The idea is to offer a positive selection appropriate to our community,” she said. “The collection
can be about history, heroes, art ‘how-to’ books and
classics.”
Smith was adamant in saying that the Little Free
Library is not in competition with the Ohio County
Library.
“No way that’s going to be,” she said. “We love our
Ohio County Library and totally support it.”
Johnston said the layoffs are the result of regulations placed on the coal
mining industry by the Environmental Protection Agency.
With the closing of the Highland and Dodge Hill facilities, Patriot Coal
now has eight active mining complexes in Kentucky and Illinois, which
are responsible for 1.8 billion tons of coal reserves.
In 2013, Patriot Coal produced 3.9 million tons of coal. Despite the closures, the Heritage preparation plant and barge loading terminal on the
Ohio River will continue processing and shipping coal until inventories
are depleted, according to a release from the company.
Patriot Coal made headlines again last month when Eli Eldridge, a
34-year-old employee at the Highland Mine, was killed after he was hit
by a coal hauler while working underground.
According to the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration, Eldridge
was one of two coal miners in the state who were killed while at work in
2014.
The company is selling certain assets in the west Kentucky region,
along with some coal supply agreements and coal reserves in the area to
Alliance Resource Partners, according to a release. Patriot Coal is also currently engaged in separate talks to sell the closed
Highland mine and Heritage facilities to other parties and expects to conclude such transactions in the first half of 2015, according to a company
statement.
Lawmakers prepare to elect leaders
Temperature could hit zero this week
By Jack Brammer
The Herald-Leader
Kentucky lawmakers
will flock to the state
Capitol on Tuesday to
begin their 2015 legislative session.
During the first four
days, they will elect
their leaders, begin
pondering
proposals
dealing with everything
from stabilizing the
state’s flagging Road
Fund to religious freedom, and witness a rally to implement a statewide smoking ban.
At the end of the
week, Kentucky’s 2015
General Assembly will
adjourn until Feb. 3,
when they’ll come back
to Frankfort and begin
the law-making process that will last until
March 24.
The Republican-controlled Senate and the
Democratic-led House
will officially kick off
this year’s “short” legislative session at high
noon Tuesday.
Short legislative sessions run for 30 working days. They are
held in odd- numbered
years. The long — or 60day — sessions are in
even-numbered years.
This first part of the
2015 session will see
tight leadership races
in both parties of the
House.
Republicans
and Democrats in the
Senate elected their
leaders in December.
Deciding who leads
Kentucky’s
lawmakers could have a major
impact on the session,
since leaders determine which bills will be
considered and the assignment of committee
members.
The 54 Democrats in
the 100-member House
have five leaders to
elect.
House Speaker Greg
Stumbo is expected to
easily win re-election,
putting the most focus
among Democrats on
the race to replace Larry Clark of Louisville as
House speaker pro tem.
Clark announced in November they he would
not to seek re-election
to the leadership position he’s held since
1993.
Early last month,
12 of the 13 Jefferson
County House Democrats held a secret ballot and chose Darryl
Owens as their choice
for speaker pro tem.
Clark did not attend
the meeting. Owens is
chairman of the House
Elections, Constitutional Amendments and
Intergovernmental Affairs Committee.
If elected, he would
become
the
second
black person elected
to leadership in the
Kentucky legislature.
Senate Democrats last
month elected Sen. Gerald Neal of Louisville as
the first, making him
their caucus chairman.
But Owens still faces a host of other candidates seeking the
House speaker pro tem
position. They include
Rep. Dennis Keene of
Wilder, Rep. Jeff Greer
of Brandenburg and
Rep. Jody Richards of
Bowling Green. Richards is a former speaker of the House.
On the Republican
side of the House, two of
three GOP leaders have
said they will not seek
re-election to their leadership posts — House
Republican Whip John
“Bam” Carney of Campbellsville and Republican Caucus Chair Bob
DeWeese of Louisville.
House Republican
Leader Jeff Hoover
of Jamestown is being challenged by Rep.
Adam Koenig of Erlanger.
Hoover has never
faced a serious opponent since he was elected House minority leader in 2001. Koenig has
cited Hoover’s inability
to lead Republicans to
a takeover of the House
in the November elections.
In addition to electing
leaders and appointing committee heads
during the first week of
the session, some lawmakers have said they
plan to introduce and
push legislation on a
variety of topics.
Senate Transportation Chairman Ernie
Harris, R-Crestwood, is
working on a plan that
he said would stabilize
the state Road Fund.
The state Transportation Cabinet announced in November
that the state tax on
sales of gasoline, diesel and ethanol motor
fuels would drop by 4.3
cents a gallon on Jan.
1, resulting in a loss to
the Road Fund of about
$129 million on an annualized basis.
Kentucky’s gas tax,
which accounts for
more than half the revenue in the Road Fund,
fluctuates with the average wholesale price of
gas, which has dropped
in recent months.
A loss of $129 million
would amount to about
6 percent of Kentucky’s
highway
funding,
which was forecast to
collect $2.25 billion in
the current fiscal year
from all revenue sources, including state and
federal motor-fuels taxes and a state usage tax
on motor vehicles.
Also, Sen. Albert
Robinson, R-London, is
working on a bill that
he said would deal with
religious freedom. Last
year, Robinson won legislative approval for a
measure that required
posting “In God We
Trust” signs in every
legislative committee
room.
Other weighty topics
to be considered in the
session include a statewide ban on smoking
in public places, curbing the use of heroin,
raising the minimum
wage, granting voting
rights for ex-felons, redrawing state circuit
court boundaries, and
a state constitutional amendment to give
communities the option
to impose temporarily
higher sales taxes on
themselves to pay for
big construction projects.
The entire session will
be played out with the
backdrop of gubernatorial politics.
Kentuckians will
elect a new governor
and lieutenant governor this year, and other state constitutional
offices.
Two state legislators
are running for lieutenant governor — Rep.
Sannie Overly of Paris
on the Democratic ticket with Attorney General Jack Conway, and
Republican Sen. Christian McDaniel of Latonia on the slate with
Agriculture
Commissioner James Comer.
Other lawmakers are
mulling the possibility
of entering this year’s
races. They have until Jan. 27 to decide
whether to file.
The Ohio County Sheriff’s Department, The Kentucky State Police,
The Hartford Police Department and the Beaver Dam Police Department
would like to thank all the many wonderful people that made our shopping with
a Police Officer another huge success this year. With your generous donations

The Paducah Sun
Look out western Kentucky. It’s
about to be very cold.
Temperatures could drop as low
as zero degrees Wednesday night or
Thursday morning. That is unusually low for this week of the winter in
western Kentucky, though it could
be worse; zero is 15 degrees warmer than the region’s lowest recorded
temperature.
The all-time coldest temperature
for the Paducah area, without factoring in wind chill, came 30 years ago
when it reached minus 15 degrees
on Jan. 20, 1985, according to Sean
Poulos, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Paducah.
The region’s lowest high temperature during winter fell on the same
day in 1985 when the high was just
1 degree.
Although it won’t get that bitterly
cold this week, it is going to get uncomfortably frigid. Poulos said after
temperatures remain primarily in
the 30s today, arctic air will arrive in
Kentucky late tonight and Wednesday morning. The high Wednesday
is expected to be about 20 degrees
around 6 a.m., and it’s expected to
gradually get colder throughout
the day with temperatures hitting
around 10 degrees at sunset at 5 p.m.
With wind gusts between 20 to 30
mph in the forecast for Wednesday,
Poulos said it’s going to feel much
colder than 10 to 20 degrees Wednesday.
“Wind chills will be around zero or
even in the negatives by later in the
day Wednesday,” he said. “(Today),
we’ll be waking up to the upper 20s,
and by Wednesday ... with the wind
chills we’ll be flirting with sub-zero
temps.”
Overnight Wednesday, temps could
drop to as low as 2 or even zero degrees, Poulos said. He said it’s rare
in this area to see temperatures that
low without snow on the ground,
which generally lowers the temperature.
“It’s not all that common here to
get that cold,” he said.
Temperatures are forecast to increase later in the week but remain
below normal with highs in the 20s
on Thursday and Friday.
If the low were to drop below
zero when the frigid air settles in
Wednesday night, it would be the
first time the region has seen sub-zero temps in four years. The last day
the temperature dropped below zero
in western Kentucky was Feb. 10,
2011, when it was 4 degrees below
zero.

In Loving Memory
MARY DUVALL WRIGHT
The Day You Went Away
I shall never forget the pain
Of the day you went away.
How the sunshine in my life
Turned to clouds of darkest grey.
You’re now within a world of light
Where you so softly lie asleep.
Within my heart will always stay
The precious memories that I keep.
Sadly missed by all of your family...

you have no pain. You
know our loss is truly
Heaven’s gain. Like Sarah and Adam, there’s
another empty space
in my heart; I knew I
would feel this way from

we’ll be together on
Heaven’s bright shore;
never to be apart, forever more. I didn’t only
lose a wonderful Dad, I
lost my friend. I love and

VIEWPOINT
Who will win war on heroin
We are at war.
A war that is not being
fought on distant shores,
but a war being waged in
our towns, in our schools,
and in our playgrounds.
You cannot hear the
cannons roar or the
bombs exploding, only
the screams of children
as the enemies of all
humanity strike like
vile serpents. Silently,
cowardly they slither in
amongst us seeking their
prey - your children - my
children. They want children to sink their fangs
into - to foul their precious blood with their
poisonous weapon.
Their weapon is heroin.
Heroin is a weapon of
hate. It is held by those
who hate the world and
everyone in it. Creatures
that go by name Tali-
ban, ISCL and Al-Queda. Their minions here
in Kentucky are no better than their owners
spreading misery and
death. These Kentucky
dealers do not look at
school yards full of happy
children the same way
you and I would. All they
see are human slaves or
products to be turned
into profits that their
masters will convert into
guns, bullets, and bombs.
Kentucky heroin dealers
deserve no sympathy.
They do not want understanding. All they want
is to take our children,
drain them of life and
murder them.
The dealers laugh at
the feeble laws currently
on the books in Kentucky
for drug trafficking,
knowing their profits are
safe from criminal prosecution. They brag how
many children they have
killed, because according
to Kentucky law, they
can’t be charged with
murder if one of their
victims overdoses, especially a child. But their
biggest howls of laughter are at the Kentucky
General Assembly's feeble attempts at anti-heroin bills that never pass.
This year’s tepid attempt
at a bill is supposed to be
a compromise without
any harsh penalties for
the bad guys. (No. No.
We must not make the
dealers mad or hurt them
in any way. We must
compromise. And give
them therapy. Harsh
punishments don’t work.
We must give them soft
pillows and new coffins
for their victims.) We
must rehabilitate the
dealers. The General
Assembly would have us
believe that with enough
therapy, time and money, any person could be
rehabilitated. Like any
farmer could transform
a slaughter-ready steer
into a prize winning bull
through therapy.
A compromise by definition is “an agreement
made to adjust or settle
by mutual concession.”
I wonder who the legislature made concessions
with - the dealers - the
Taliban. What guarantees did the dealers
make? We know for a fact
that guarantees made by
photo album, she asked
a very simple question.
"I wonder what's going to
happen this New Year?"
That sure opens up Pandora's Box.
That's an excellent
question to ponder and
only time will tell. Next
year at this time we will
know the answer to that
question.
One thought did come
to me, but I sure didn't
want to tell her. Certain
things a person needs to
find out for herself. The
only thing I'm sure of for
this coming New Year is
it I'm going to get a little
bit older, whatever that
means. I hope it doesn't
mean I get grouchier or
anything like that. Of
course, I'm probably as
grouchy as I'll ever get
or anybody could get.
Grouchy gets old real
fast. Trust me.
For a few moments, we
sat in quiet, musing our
own thoughts and if she
was on the same wavelength as me, she was
thinking about how fast
our time has gone. You
don't get a second chance
to do many things in this
life.
I'm not one for making
New Year's resolutions,
but if I were, I think one
New Year's resolution I
would make would be,
make sure I take advantage of the time and people I have when I have
them. Appreciate each
day and each person because it may be the last
time.
I think David might've
had some thoughts along
this line. "I have been
young, and now am old;
yet have I not seen the
righteous forsaken, nor
his seed begging bread"
(Psalm 37:25).
I can't be young again
but I can enjoy what God
has put in front of me today.
Rev. James L. Snyder
is pastor of the Family
of God Fellowship, PO
Box 831313, Ocala, FL
34483. He lives with his
wife, Martha, in Silver
Springs Shores.
Acknowledging addiction a
painful first step to recovery
the sons of Satan guarantees nothing. A perfect
compromise would be a
true anti-heroin law that
contains stiff sentences
(greater than forty years
without the possibility
of parole for any amount
of heroin), mandatory
death penalty for heroin
overdose deaths in those
under the age of sixteen
and treatment programs
for those willing to give
up their dealers.
If we make the stakes
high enough, the sewer
rat dealer will want to
leave Kentucky epically
if we enable our law enforcement personnel the
tools to go after and capture the rats anywhere.
We can do this. Because:
*By eliminating the
distribution and sale
of heroin in Kentucky,
we can save the lives of
countless children.
*We can eliminate the
crimes associated with
heroin.
*Deny the Taliban and
its mentally ill cohorts
the means to child pornography, child prostitution, and the promotion of violence.
We cannot afford to
lose this war. The General Assembly must act
and act with force. Or
more UofL Cheerleaders
and innocent children
will die at the hands of
those without mercy,
pity or compassion.

Everything new
gets old too soon
By: Dr. James L. Snyder
I am not one to stay up
New Year's Eve to watch
some celebrity drop the
ball at Times Square at
midnight. All year long I
have to put up with people dropping the ball so
I'm not going to make a
special effort to watch
somebody drop another
ball.
As for the Gracious
Mistress of the Parsonage and myself we stayed
home New Year's Eve
and enjoyed our own society. It's always good to
have nothing to do and
knowing that nobody
will stop by and nobody's
going to call us on the
phone. A night with the
cell phones quiet is like
a night in the forest. Everybody is out celebrating
the end of the old year.
I think everybody has
the right to celebrate in
his or her own way.
One thing struck both
of us as we were reclining
and drinking some apple
cider tea. Believe me, it's
a rare occasion when the
same thought invades
both of our thinking
space at the same time.
She seems to always
know what I'm thinking
and I never seem to be
thinking.
She looked at me and
said, "Do you know what
I've been thinking?"
Being a husband for
as many moons as I have
been, I know a trick question when I hear it. Since
this is the last night of
the old year, how do I
know she's not using it
to get in one more trick
question?
But, it's the last evening of the old year and
so I threw caution to the
wind (which actually hit
the wall) and walked into
her question.
"No, what have you
been thinking?"
"I've just been thinking
about how fast time flies."
And then she seemed to
stare into space.
She had a good point
there. I'm not sure which
airline time travels on
but it sure does go fast.
While I was musing,
which isn't really that
amusing, she then let her
thoughts flow.
"Everything
new
seems to get old too soon.
Just as soon as you get
something new, in no
time it becomes old."
I suspect she was
thinking of me when she
used the word "old." I
didn't say it, but I wanted
to say, "Old is better than
dead." Sometimes it's
best to keep your mouth
shut especially when I'm
with my wife.
I don't say this too often, but she had a great
point there. It's like when
you buy a brand-new
automobile at the auto
dealer. It's new when you
sign the contract, it's new
when you step into the
car and smell the freshness, but as soon as you
drive it off the lot it's an
old car.
We then started to
talk about all the happenings during the past
year. Many things happen, some bad, some
good. Then, for whatever
reason, my wife brought
out our old family photo
album. Whatever possessed her to do that I'll
never know nor will I ask.
We began looking at
some of the old pictures,
but those old pictures
were new when they
were taken.
When we came to our
wedding pictures, I was
a little shocked. I didn't
know anybody could look
that young. There we
were, a beautiful young
bride and a somewhat
handsome young groom.
The only thing we had in
common at the time was,
we were both young.
Looking at those old
pictures, particularly of
myself, it hardly seems
possible that this old geezer staring back at me in
the mirror each morning
is the same young man in
those pictures. Whatever
happened to that young
man?
Then we went through
the arrival of children
and then grandchildren.
They were so young when
they were born! Look at
them now.
As my wife closed the
Tony and Fay Hall
would like to thank everyone for sharing
in our
50th Wedding Anniversary
Celebration
on December 14, 2014
We would like also to thank Colleen,
Tiffany and John for everything they did
to make the day special for us.
Question: I've had a
problem with alcohol
for years, and now it's
severely impacting my
family and even my
work. I doubt that I'll
be able to stop drinking without professional assistance. Can you
point me in the right
direction?
Jim: You've already
taken the most important step toward change
by admitting that you
need help. No one sets
a goal of becoming addicted to a substance.
Addiction is powerful
and deceptive in its
nature. It's a non-discriminatory, progressive disorder of the
body, mind and spirit
-- therefore, it isolates
people spiritually, emotionally and socially.
If you're ever to move
beyond this stifling
isolation, it will be because you intentionally
choose to do so.
I encourage you to begin your recovery journey by identifying the
nearest support group
that deals with alcoholism or addictive behaviors. In addition to
Alcoholics Anonymous
(AA), there are many
faith-based
recovery
meetings that can offer
encouragement.
If you're unsure what
level of care you need,
our counselors recommend that you contact
a licensed chemical
dependency treatment
program near you to
schedule an evaluation.
The outcome will help
you determine the next
step. While the thought
of taking that step may
seem intimidating, I
strongly encourage you
to follow through on
the program's recommendations. Your life
is too precious to gamble with, and trying
to overcome addiction
without outside help is
extremely difficult.
Getting treatment is
a crucial decision, but
it's just the beginning.
After treatment, the
stresses of living sober
can quickly lead to a
relapse. You'll want to
connect with a strong
aftercare
program
where relapse prevention techniques and
skills are taught.
Finally, I invite you
to call our licensed
counselors at Focus,
855-771-HELP (4357).
They can provide encouragement and also
help you find a qualified therapist in your
area who can assist in
your efforts to move
forward.
May
God
grant you the strength
for the journey.

Question:
Our
17-year-old son has become very disrespectful
to us. He's easily angered and makes sarcastic remarks. We've
tried taking away privileges, but it doesn't
seem to change his attitude. What can we do
to make him take notice and grow up?
Dr. Greg Smalley,
Vice President, Family Ministries: I understand that this is a
frustrating situation -but unfortunately, one
that is fairly common.
Often when a teenager starts being disrespectful, I assume that
something else is driving that behavior.
Begin by doing a selfcheck to assess the behaviors you and your
spouse are modeling. If
your son feels that you
don't respect each other (or him), or doesn't
believe he's a priority
to you, he may reflect
that attitude back at
you.
Next, it's vital to
reach out in love and
try to find out what
has prompted the behavioral change. Is
he being bullied or rejected by peers? Perhaps he didn't make a
team, or is struggling
with
a
particular
school subject, and is
feeling diminished as
a result.
The point is that
if you genuinely try
to understand his
world and emotions,
and pursue him relationally, he probably
won't resent limits.
Teenagers need a
stable, secure foundation to launch into
adulthood; they want
to know that you care
enough to establish
reasonable boundaries.
That involves being
proactive vs. reactive. Set aside a time
-- outside the heat
of conflict -- and respectfully share your
feelings using word
pictures. Involve your
son in the process of
contracting
around
appropriate behavior,
i.e., get him to decide
and agree not only to
the consequences if
he falls short, but also
the rewards when he
succeeds.
As the saying goes,
"Do to others what
you would have them
do to you." Show
him you respect him
enough to really care
if he's hurting, and
hopefully he will reciprocate.

If This Year is Your Last
What if we receive news that this year will be our last? Will we
live differently and use our time more wisely; realizing we will never
again “have a share in anything done under the sun” (Eccl. 9:6)? We
are foolish to assume it cannot happen. The Bible warns, “...you do
not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even
a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (Jas.
4:14). Life is too fragile and fleeting to live as if we will never leave.
If this year is our last, we need to appreciate every day and moment we have with our family. Now is the time
to replace petty quarrels, pride and selfishness with hugs, forgiveness and self-sacrifice. True love demands it, in
that it “does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil” (1 Cor. 13:5). We may not
have another year to hold our mate, encourage our children or uplift a loved one.
If this year is our last, we need to have our sins forgiven in Christ (Col. 1:14), while we still can. Eternity is
too late to realize the importance of trusting and obeying the risen Savior. Thus, “Repent, and let every one of
you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38). Tomorrow may never come.
The psalmist prayed, “So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psa. 90:12). If
we are wise, we will live with the same perspective. Now is the time to appreciate life and to walk with God;
for, “there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going” (Eccl. 9:10) - Mike
Thomas

County Extension Agent for Agriculture & Natural Resources
Office: (270) 298-7441
FARM BILL GRAIN
SIGN-UP
HAS
BEGUN
Sign-up for the new
Farm Bill began about
45 days ago, but there
is still plenty of time to
update your yields and
evaluate your options
before the deadline.
Prior
to
electing
a
coverage
type,
landowners have a onetime opportunity to
update their payment
yields (based upon 90%
of a farm’s 2008-2012
average yields) and/
or to reallocate their
farm base acres based
upon the share of 20092012
acres planted
to
program
crops.
Reallocated base acres
cannot exceed the total
2013 base acres.
Most land owners
should seriously look at
updating farm yields.
This is an important
opportunity
because
in the past farmers/
landowners have had
few chances to update
USDA program yields.
Also,
considering
the excellent yields
grain producers have
experienced in recent
years, higher program
yields may translate
into higher program
payments, when they
are made.
The
decision
to
update yields can be
made on a crop-by-crop
basis. Update a crop
yield when it improves
your program yield, or
don’t update if it won’t
improve your program
yield.
Updating
yields
is the privilege and
responsibility of the
land owner; but in
cash rent or crop share
situations, the landlord
will likely be dependent
upon his/her tenant
for
the
information
needed
to
update
yields.
Satisfactory
documentation of yields
may need to be provided
to the Farm Service
Agency (FSA) in order
to
update
program
yields. Tenants should
communicate with their
landlords to make sure
that the opportunities
for updating yields and
reallocating bases are
evaluated and acted
upon if beneficial for the
farm.
A person who has a
FSA Power of Attorney
(POA) for a farm
owner or owners may
reallocate farm bases or
update farm yields if the
POA agreement for that
farm specifically states
that the POA is valid
for “All Current and
Future Programs and
All Actions.” Common
courtesy would dictate
that the Power of
Attorney should consult
with the land owner(s)
prior to reallocating
bases or proving yields.
The Farm Service
Agency
sent
out
information
in
August that lists each
farm’s 2014 program
crop base acres and
counter-cyclical yields,
and
the
2008-2012
planting
history.
This information can
be used to evaluate
whether it will be
beneficial to update
yields
or
reallocate
base acres. The final
date for updating yields
and/or
reallocating
bases is Feb. 27, 2015.
However, land owners
or their POAs should
plan to complete yield
updates and/or base
reallocations as soon as
possible, because FSA
offices will get busier
as the signup deadlines
approach.
While the decisions
to update yields or
reallocate bases belong
to
landlords,
the
decision about “electing”
or choosing the coverage
type will belong to the
tenants or producers on
a given farm. According
to the Congressional
Research Service, “The
2014 Farm Bill defines
a producer as an owneroperator,
landlord,
tenant, or sharecropper
that shares in the risk
of producing a crop and
is entitled to a share of
the crop produced on the
farm.”
Sign-up for ARC or
PLC, runs from Nov. 17,
2014, through March
31, 2015.
Producers
have a choice between
a safety net for prices,
called
Price
Loss
Coverage (PLC); or a
revenue safety net,
called Agriculture Risk
Coverage (ARC), which
has 2 options. USDA’s
Direct
Payments
and
Counter-Cyclical
Payments have been
discontinued under the
new Farm Bill. Making
a choice between PLC,
ARC-County, and ARCIndividual may not be
easy, because there are
a wide range of price
and yield scenarios that
could play out over the
next five years. It’s also
possible that the 2014
Farm Bill could be in
effect for more than five
years.
Grain
producers
should take their time
in
evaluating
your
options before visiting
the FSA office to signup.
The closer we get to
the signup deadline the
more opportunity you
will have to analyze how
grain prices may move
over the next year.
There are two USDAsponsored Farm Bill
decision tools on the
internet. The simpler
tool was created by
a coalition led by the
University of Illinois.
It is found at http://fsa.
usapas.com/. The second
tool which incorporates
more producer variables,
was created by the
National
Association
of
Agriculture
and
Food Policy (NAAFP)
led by the Food and
Agricultural
Policy
Research
Institute
(FAPRI)
at
the
University of Missouri,
and the Agricultural
and Food Policy Center
(AFPC) at Texas A&M
University. It is found
at
https://usda.afpc.
tamu.edu/.
In order to utilize
these tools, a producer
will need to have
information on a farm’s
bases, counter cyclical
yields,
2008-2012
planting history, 20082012 actual yields, and
crop insurance plans;
and at a bare minimum
will need to make some
assumptions
about
grain prices over the
next five years. Starting
in January, I will begin
assisting
producers
at the Ohio County
Extension office with
evaluating the Farm
Bill coverage options
using these web tools.
The Ohio County FSA
office staff can assist
producers with many
of your Farm Bill
questions, but they
are not allowed to help
farmers choose which
coverage option to sign
up for.
I will be holding a Farm
Bill educational meeting
on the evening of
Tuesday, Feb. 10, at the
Ohio County Extension
office in Hartford. Grain
producers should plan
to attend to receive the
most up-to-date market
outlook and evaluation
of the ARC & PLC
programs available.
Farmers also need
to
remember
that
under the 2014 Farm
Bill, the foundation of
USDA’s safety net for
grain producers is crop
insurance, which makes
up about 75 percent of
the revenue protection
that is available for grain
crops. So, talk with your
crop insurance agent to
evaluate the best level
of coverage.

Little Bit of Everything
By: Dave McBride
[email protected]
“Oh my,” I said to myself. “Look at that! Just
look at that!”
There I was. Sitting
in an Owensboro mall
with little or nothing
better to do with my
time. Both hands rested on a styrofoam cup
filled with coffee and
my eyes drifted from
one not-so-very-interesting scene to another.
Then I saw it! Something that would have
been so very important
to me some 73 years
ago was unfolding right
before my eyes. How
could I not have known
it then?
Not more than 20 feet
in front of me were a
few people taking down
a temporary sales booth
and removing the merchandise. Nothing was
a least bit interesting
about it except the manner in which they were
taking that merchandise out of the mall.
That was when I hurriedly rushed back in
time and developed a
feeling of almost complete uselessness.
What they were doing
was loading the merchandise in two red
wagons - that’s right,
two red wagons - and a
young man was wheeling it out to a waiting
truck.
“Can you believe that?”
I said to myself again.
“Can you believe that?”
And it just wasn’t two
red wagons that both-
ered me. That would
have been no more important than a bird
pooping on a fence post.
What tore me up was
the fact that those wagons were joined together - the tongue of the
back wagon fastened to
the rear of the other.
“Fantastic,” I almost
shouted. “Simply fantastic.”
Okay, okay, I’ll try to
explain what this is all
about.
When I was about 10 or
11, I lived on east Main
Street in Owensboro
and a Mr. Froehlich - father of former Daviess
County Judge-executive
Bill Froehlich - lived
in east Daviess County and annually raised
a large truck garden. I
knew him only through
a church association,
but he, somehow or another, knew that I was
a youngster in need of
earning a few pennies.
To that end, Mr. Froehlich dropped by my
house one day in early
spring and asked if I
would be interested in
selling his produce in
my neighborhood. Naturally, I said yes, but
there would be a terrible limitation. I didn’t
have any way of transporting the produce except by feet and hands.
So that’s what I did.
Every day I would
walk endlessly knocking on doors and taking
orders. Meeting with a
considerable amount of
success, I then would
return home, grab up as
many orders as I could
manage, and deliver
them. It was a slow,
difficult and very tiring
way of running a business.
Then one day mother
luck smiled down on me.
A gracious neighbor by
the name of Mrs. Woods
realized the trouble I
was having and offered
me the use of a red wagon her son had longsince outgrown. What a break! What
a beautiful break! Now
I could haul two bushel
baskets, thus saving a
lot of time and a lot of
extra walking.
But there still was a
problem. Mr. Froehlich
daily brought me at
least six bushels of vegetables.
“I can help you with
that,” Mrs. Woods’ husband, Mr. Jim, said.
“We can build some
sideboards for the wagon.”
And he did. Mr. Woods
put sideboards on each
side of the wagon so
that I could haul six
bushels. I was earning
a dime for each bushel
I sold and I was selling
out almost every day.
Sixty cents a day, six
days a week. Not bad
earnings. Not bad at all.
But why! Why couldn’t
I have thought of something I saw 73 years
later in an Owensboro
mall? Somehow I could
have managed another wagon, constructed more sideboards,
hooked those suckers
together, hauled 12
bushels of produce at
one time and worked
myself into riches.
But no, that didn’t
happen. I missed out
on all of that money
simply because I didn’t
have the foresight and
the mental wherewithal
to copy what Mr. Woods
had done.
There weren’t any
truck gardens around
when my two sons came
on the scene and it probably was a good thing.
Oh, I could have rigged
up that one wagon and
either Marty or Kelly
could have managed
with six bushels. But
I wouldn’t have seem
what I saw last Friday
morning for another 40
or 50 years and they
would have been out of
the veggie-selling mood.
Really good ideas, I
guess, only come around
every lifetime or so.
