Bring Your Garden Indoors

If the thought of facing a long winter without straight-from-the-garden freshness makes you sad, weep no more. It’s easy as tomato pie to grow your own produce indoors.

There are a number of indoor gardening systems on the market today. They range in price and require anything from 2 square feet in space all the way to a multi-tiered 5-feet wide rack of shelving and grow lights. But if you don’t have the money or space to invest in one of these systems, don’t worry. There’s plenty you can do without them.

Monetary gifts can help teach youth financial management

Many youth receive money or gift cards during the holidays. This is a perfect time for parents to teach them about wise financial management.


Ways to Deter Black Vultures

Black vultures are native to Kentucky. As a result, they are present here year-round, but you may be seeing more of them now for a few reasons. Their overall populations have increased in the state in the past couple of years. They are also a migratory species with a recently expanded range that stretches from Canada to South America, so you will see a lot more birds in Kentucky during the fall and winter as the birds from the northern range migrate south.


Christ Covenant Church

 Bro. Woody Moore, founding Pastor of Christ Covenant Church

On a humid mid-June Sunday morning, songs of praise could be heard echoing across the farm bottoms of the Green River.  Those melodies were resounding from a small cabin atop a hill that overlooked a lake in Woodbury, Ky.  Not the typical setting for Sunday morning worship service these days.  Nevertheless, this was a special day for a few of us who had endeavored to begin a new chapter in our lives and in the history of Butler County.


Butler County Chapter NSDAR Festival of Trees

The Butler County Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution proudly announces the return of the annual Festival of Trees.  In the past, the Festival of Trees has been held in a local venue where participants displayed their tree for public viewing. As a result of COVID-19 and concerns about keeping our community safe, this year’s Festival of Trees will be using social media to unite our community in celebrating the season. We are excited and hope that you will join us as we present our Festival of Trees: A Visual Feast.
