    CALVARY ASSEMBLY OF GOD

  • Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden has announced that as of July 1, 2015, dairy farmers can enroll in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Margin Protection Program for coverage in 2016. The voluntary program, established by the 2014 Farm Bill, provides financial assistance to participating dairy operations when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below the coverage level selected by the farmer.

  • The Harrison County Ag Development Board has applied and been approved for the 2015 Ag Development funds. A signed agreement has been sent to Frankfort and we now wait for the application to be returned to start the program.
    The time frame is as follows; two weeks of public notification followed by two weeks of producer application sign-ups. Following the application period the applications will be scored and the top scores will be awarded the funds for their project.

  • About 40 years ago a fungus was discovered in pepper crops in New York and since it has spread as far as California and Florida.  It’s in our midst, as well.  
    The fungus in question causes phytophthora blight in peppers.  Some refer to the sudden wilting of peppers as damping off, phytophthora root rot, crown rot or stem and fruit rot.  
    Clearly the fungus impacts the entire plant.
    I had a problem with this blight in my pepper patch and it seems as though it is back!

  • The Sgt. Elijah P. Marrs Camp No. 5, Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, is searching for descendents of Brigadier General John Croxton, who is buried in the Paris Cemetery.
    The camp is planning a service in Croxton’s honor in late October at his gravesite.
    “The camp has been searching for and re-dedicating Civil War veteran’s gravestones during the 150th anniversary of the war,” said Phillip Seyfrit, commander of the Sons of Union Veterans camp based in Lexington. “We thought this year we would honor Croxton.”
