Audrey Myers wants a bright future for Greensburg, and as the county’s family and consumer sciences agent with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, she is taking strides to do so.

Myers joined forces with Jackie Hodges, an educator with the Green County Health Department, to start a walking trail in the town of a little more than 2,100. The trail, the Merchant Mile, not only has health benefits for the area’s residents, but is designed to raise awareness of and draw locals to downtown.

As owner of one of the state’s largest dairies, Logan County farmer Lee Robey is a very busy man. In the fall, he and his crew are all-hands-on-deck, as they work to harvest his grain crops in a timely manner to maintain optimum quality. Any unnecessary downtime could be a real inconvenience and detrimental to the harvest progress.

To make the harvest run smoother, Robey has taken some of his profits from the past few years of record grain prices and invested in on-farm storage. In the past four years, he’s nearly doubled his storage capacity.
