Red Ribbon Month @ MES

Morgantown Elementary School has been participating in the national Red Ribbon campaign at MES for several years.  Red Ribbon Month is a national campaign to create a drug-free community.  It encourages education, awareness, and a unified commitment toward a drug-free America.  During the month, students are taught the dangers of using tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.  They are taught how they can find their own “Natural High” – an activity, sport, or art form that they enjoy.  The culminating event is a Red Ribbon Parade around the school.

Operation Christmas Child

A simple gift!!!!  It is Shoe Box time again.  Since 1999 Butler Countians have sent approximately 5790 shoe boxes loaded with gifts, through Franklin Graham’s Ministry.  These boxes have gone all over the world.  Last year some boxes from here went to Ghana, Africa and sometimes the children write back to say thank you.  Some of our very own Butler Countians go the processing centers and help pack these boxes for shipment.  Perhaps you saw the Diane Sawyer TV special last week of Native Americans in South Dakota.  Shoeboxes are sent to many of these children.  It’s easy to pack a shoebox—i


Pottersfield Asylum

Blood-chilling laughter and terrified shrieks fill the air at Pottersfield Asylum Friday and Saturday nights just after dark. Visitors to the Asylum travel through the wooded compound that once belonged to Dr. Pottersfield. Be prepared to be scared as you make your way through the dark and twisted playground of a mad scientist to see the aftermath of his "genius." You definitely don't want to spend the night at the campground or get a haircut from the barber here. Don't trust the babysitters either. Watch out for the IZCU Members lurking in the dark.


3rd District Community Road Meeting

Friday evening, October 21, 2011, a group of concerned Third District citizens gathered at the Rochester Community Building to discuss the Kentucky Department of Transportation’s 6 year plan for Butler County.  Third District Magistrate Chad Tyree (pictured) began by welcoming those in attendance.  He then discussed rural and municipal road aid. Tyree said, “About 10% less road aid will be received this fiscal year as opposed to previous years.”
Tyree then opened the meeting for questions and discussion. Afterwards he thanked everyone for attending.

4-H Country Ham Project – Curing Ham at the Extension Service

By:  Lloyd G. Saylor, County Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development: The Kentucky 4-H Country Ham program is a program that helps youth to develop applicable real world skills in two ways. First, youth learn about the process, history, and science of curing hams. This process briefly covers issues such as food safety, meat production, basic chemistry principles, and food preservation. After the actual process of curing their hams (each youth receives two hams) with a local expert on the process, the youth select their best ham and exhibit it at the country ham contest at the state fair.
