  • Our jailer’s working out just fine, thanks

    By Ben Carlson

    A recent news report from a media outlet in Kentucky took some fairly stiff jabs at elected jailers in counties without jails, which includes Anderson County Jailer Joani Clark.

    The overriding point the article tries to make is that, in large measure, counties without jails shouldn’t have an elected jailer — the state’s Constitution be damned. Instead, those counties should turn over to sheriff’s offices those jailers’ duties.

  • Don’t be next victim of alcohol poisoning

    Alcohol poisoning is a serious and preventable public health problem.

    Kentucky (9.1) is in the middle of the third quartile for age-adjusted rates of death related to alcohol poisoning. Kentucky is surrounded by Indiana (8.6), North Carolina, New York, Kansas, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey and California (9.9.)

    Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, North Dakota and Vermont had less than seven deaths annually from alcohol poisoning and weren’t included in the statistics.

  • Dealing with stresses cold has on newborn calves

    When the weather is predicted to be bitterly cold, producers should take extra care of newborn calves to ensure their survival.

    A calf’s body temperature often falls below normal in extremely cold conditions due to a slow or difficult birth (dystocia) followed by delayed standing and nursing.  Returning the calf’s core body temperature to normal (100 degrees F for newborn calves) then maintaining that core temperature is of primary importance.  If at all possible, bring close-up cows indoors to calve in a heavily bedded, clean pen.
