Risk Protection Coverage

The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers to review available USDA crop risk protection options, including federal crop insurance and Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage. Federal crop insurance covers crop losses from natural adversities such as drought, hail and excessive moisture. NAP covers losses from natural disasters on crops for which no permanent federal crop insurance program is available, including perennial grass forage and grazing crops, fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, floriculture, ornamental nursery, aquaculture, turf grass, ginseng, honey, syrup, bioenergy, and industrial crops.

American Heart Month

February marks American Heart Month and Saint Joseph London, part of KentuckyOne Health, invites the community to learn about congestive heart failure and cardiac diseases at the Bite Size Learning health education event on Wednesday, February 15.

Advance registration is requested. Saint Joseph London provides free box lunches to attendees who register at 606-864-5759.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 5.7 million Americans have heart failure, and nearly half of those who develop it die within five years of diagnosis. Common symptoms of heart failure include having trouble breathing when lying down, feeling tired or weak, shortness of breath during daily activities, and weight gain with swelling in the feet, legs, ankles or stomach.

The American Heart Association reports that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Common heart disease conditions include coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart valve disease, congenital heart disease, heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms, and heart muscle disease.

Bite Size Learning is an educational series sponsored by Saint Joseph London. Each month, a physician or staff member from Saint Joseph London hosts a special lunch-and-learn-style presentation on a different health topic to increase awareness and educate the public.

The event is free to the public, but those interested are encouraged to preregister at 606.864.5759.

ABC Responds to Industry Growth

4cf4f5_1900d92b03f84a7ca7d7ff6bb8821a96

Kentucky’s alcohol landscape is changing, and the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) works daily to ensure that it matches industry growth with exceptional and efficient customer service. ABC has experienced an increase in call volume since SB 11 took effect, fielding approximately 85-105 phone calls each day. In addition, the department reviews and renews licenses for up to 1,400 sites each month. The work volume has not deterred department leadership from giving careful consideration to every application and inquiry received. Once a new locality officially becomes “wet,” ABC assigns a licensing specialist from the department to assist with incoming applications. The local government has the authority to write and approve ordinances, determine local ABC administrators, and impose license fees as authorized by law.

Fight against hunger

Quarles Ryan

By Ryan Quarles, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture

The Kentucky Hunger Initiative got off to a great start in 2016. There are many ways that you can help. The easiest way is to check the box on your state income tax return – it’s on Line 33 on Form 740 – to donate part of your tax refund to the Kentucky Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund. You also may donate directly to the trust fund. Contributions to the fund are used to offset farmers’ costs for providing Kentucky-grown fruits and vegetables to food banks. The fund is administered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Farmers may donate foods to nonprofit food programs and receive a state tax credit equal to 10 percent of the value of the donated product. When you donate food, you improve your cash flow while helping feed a Kentucky family.
