  • (StatePoint) Between family, friends, coaches and teachers, some children give as many holiday presents as they receive. Helping your child pick out great gifts can be tricky and often times, impersonal. This year, encourage your child’s creativity with easy kids’ crafts they’ll give as gifts. Do-it-yourself handmade gifts are a growing trend, thanks to the popularity of sites like Etsy and Pinterest.
    Here are a few suggestions for thoughtful gifts kids can give this holiday:

  • Fifteen beef producers from Harrison County participated in a Certified Pre-Conditioned for Health Sale (CPH 45) on Thursday, Dec. 6 at the Paris Stockyards. The sale was the first CPH sale held in Paris under new ownership.
    The cattle were delivered on Wednesday, Dec. 5 and were weighed at that point. Each animal was evaluated on quality and pinned with like cattle in the sale. The animals were fed and watered following their delivery.

  • America’s farmers and ranchers will soon have the opportunity to make a positive impact on their communities by taking part in the 2012 Census of Agriculture.

  • Recognized for the achievements of its women’s program this year, Harrison County Farm Bureau received the 2012 Gold Star Award of Excellence during Kentucky Farm Bureau’s annual meeting in Louisville. The award honors county Women’s Committees for active participation in leadership development programs, agricultural promotion, educational initiatives and numerous other aspects of support to the local Farm Bureau.

  • Picking out the perfect Christmas tree was something that I used to take very serious: all the cleaning and moving of furniture and packing of boxes and light-stringing and unstringing required a tree worth the effort.
    I have scaled back in recent years but still see the fun in finding a tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday?
    Do you get a fresh cut, artificial, balled and burlapped?  Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?
