  • USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Increases Guaranteed Loan Limit

    John W. McCauley, State Executive Director for Kentucky’s Farm Service Agency (FSA), announces that the loan limit for the Guaranteed Loan Program increased to $1,355,000 on Oct. 1. The limit is adjusted annually based on the “Prices Paid to Farmers Index”, compiled by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS).

  • Save Your Leaves

    Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fowl swoop. We rake and pile and they jump. I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy:  adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer. At the farm raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

  • When Jesus shows up unexpectedly

    When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs.
    As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such.
    With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.
    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.
    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.
