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 See Dog...page 2-A County workers affected Hundreds out of work after mine closings Wayne and Jill Evans, along with their five grandchildren, stand in front of the new Little Free Library located on Simmerman Street in Hartford.

The Little Free Library movement was started by Todd Bol of Hudson and Rick Brooks of Madison in 2010 and has grown to include little libraries in most states and dozens of foreign countries.

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

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.

Thank You All So Much!! ~ Deputy Jerry Critchelow By Lauren P. Dunca 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.

Walnut Street - Hartford, Kentucky 298-3201 Page A-5, January 7, 2015, Times-News THE TIMES-NEWS Editorial 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. Damian C. Beach Paynesville, Ky. 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.

Shannon Boling Kirtley Circuit Court Clerk Find The Home Of Your Dreams..... Posted In The REAL ESTATE SECTION of the CLASSIFIEDS 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 Radio Program on Sundays at 10:15 a.m. on 99.9 F.M.

Comer 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. U P C O M I N G EVENTS Jan. 6: UK Winter Wheat Meeting, Christian County Extension office, Hopkinsville.

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. OHIO COUNTY WEATHER Last Week’s Almanac: Dec. 29 - Jan. 4 Day Hi Low Precip. Monday 38 31 0.0 in. Tuesday 36 22 0.0 in.
