The Harrison County Cooperative Extension Service will be holding its annual Extension Leadership Event entitled, People and Partners, Celebrating Extension, on Thursday, July 2 at 6:30 p.m.
This year the event will be held in the big barn at the Harrison County Fairgrounds. We generally hold this event in March but this year our planning committee chose to change it up a bit with more of a picnic style theme. At this event, you will receive a great meal and a short program plus some entertainment for the kids.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued new guidance on floating cabins at its lakes throughout the Cumberland River Basin. The guidance implements Section 1035 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2014 that allows floating cabins at marinas on Cumberland River Basin lakes.
Under the new guidance, marina operators will be able to rent floating cabins to the public who recreate on Cumberland River Basin lakes.

Kentucky may not have yet been a state when our country declared its independence nearly 240 years ago, but as we prepare to celebrate that anniversary this weekend, it is worth pointing out we do have ties to this early period.
We were home to about a half-dozen skirmishes during the Revolutionary War, for example, including what is widely believed to be its last: The Battle of Blue Licks in nearby Robertson County.
As many of us prepare for the July Fourth holiday, I encourage you to join me in being thankful of the freedoms we enjoy.
Though discouraging news can be hard to understand, such as the recent shootings in South Carolina, the resilience of the people in Charleston, and the discussion that has developed from that, are results of our free society.
Unfortunately, sometimes people take advantage of the freedom to do harm, but Americans show that we can unite and figure our way through a difficult time to a better place.
