FBLA excels at Region 5 Leadership Conference The Bracken County Chapter of FBLA attended the Future Business Leaders of America Region 5 Conference at Morehead State University on March 10, 2011. The chapter had sixty members, advisers, and guests attending. Activities included regional officer elections, competitive events and the long awaited awards ceremony. Savanna Simons and Justin Hill, regional officers and Ashlee Florer, State President, spoke at the opening general session where Gena Brumley, Emma Conley, and Brianna Hart sang the National Anthem in front of the more than 600 people in attendance. Diane Poe was appointed as the 2011-2012 Region 5 Parliamentarian Population sampling on Kentucky River shows many white bass, sauger and muskellunge Kentucky anglers who like sauger, white bass or muskellunge need to plan a trip to the Kentucky River in the next couple of weeks. Population sampling on the Kentucky River conducted by fishery biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources over the past several weeks show healthy populations of white bass, sauger and muskellunge. “We consistently saw 12to 15-inch sauger,” said Ohio River Fisheries Biologist Doug Henley, who assisted with the population sampling on the Kentucky River. “We also saw lots of 8- to 10-inch sauger. Those 12- to 15-inch fish are good eating size.” Nice sauger now live up and down the Kentucky River. A sampling team led by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Central Fisheries District Biologist Jeff Crosby found 18-inch sauger at Lock and Dam 5 near Tyrone. Henley saw a 16 1/2-inch sauger in the upper Kentucky River. The water level of the Kentucky River dropped enough recently to make the tailwater below Lock and Dam 2 at Lockport in Henry County fishable. “Now that the water in the Ohio River has dropped enough to bring Lock and Dam 2 out of the water, it should provide productive sauger fishing,” Henley said. “It is historically a good sauger area. You get some fish from the Ohio River there.” The Kentucky River is for having the highest score on her Parliamentary Procedure test. Ashlee Florer and Todd Jefferson won the Who’s Who in Kentucky FBLA award, which is the highest award a member can receive. Mrs. Tracy Florer and Mrs. Carrie Jefferson were recognized as Co-Outstanding Advisers of Region 5 FBLA. They will all be recognized and compete at the State Leadership Conference next month in Louisville, Kentucky. Several members worked and studied for months to compete in team and individual competitive events at the regional conference. The hard work paid off and the chapter returned with a total of 29 awards in many events. Placing first: Ashlee now loaded with white bass, albeit most of them run 6 to 8 inches. “We’ve seen white bass up to 15 inches and decent numbers of 11 to 13 inchers,” Henley said. “You are going to need to plow through the little ones to get to the bigger ones.” Henley and crew didn’t see many white bass in their population sampling on the Kentucky River last year. “The ones in the river last year must have spawned well. That is the way white bass do,” Henley said. “They pulse in their reproduction.” The Kentucky River may be the most overlooked muskellunge fishery in the state. “In early spring, we typically see muskellunge below the locks and dams on the Kentucky River,” Henley said. “This year most everything we saw was over 30 inches and we’ve seen several over 40 inches.” The mouths of tributaries near locks and dams on the Kentucky River could lead to a muskellunge fishing field day. “We saw a truckload of them in Cedar Creek below Lock and Dam 3,” Henley said. He explained that many suckers and buffalo (fish), the preferred food item of muskellunge, migrated into Cedar Creek and the muskellunge followed. “There are some untapped newly developed fisheries in the Kentucky River,” said Gerry Buynak, assistant director of fisheries for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “The sauger and white bass fisheries are the result of a five year stocking effort by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. Anglers should get on the Kentucky River this spring and enjoy them.” Bankruptcy, Criminal Law, Divorce and/or Custody, and Social Security Disability Louise M. Brown, P.S.C.

KDLA is an agency of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The grant funds will be used to transfer valuable permanent records to security microfilm within the county clerk’s office. The Local Records Program is dedicated to the preservation and management of Kentucky’s local government records of enduring value. “Over the past 26 years, grants have been given to local agencies to protect vital records and make sure they are accessible to the public,” said KDLA Local Records Program Manager Jerry Carlton. Forty-seven grants have been awarded for a total of $541,563 from fiscal year 2011 Local Records Grant Program funds. During the program’s 26-year history, a total of more than $17 million has been distributed across Kentucky and included grants to all 120 counties.

Its as easy as abc to start your subscription to The Bracken County News 606-735-2198 Submitted by Shannon Smith, CEA Family and Consumer Sciences Starting plants from seed early and transplanting them to the garden is a time-honored, economical and rewarding gardening tradition. Germinating seed at home increases the options for fall planting, when garden centers have stopped carrying a full array of plants, and it allows the home gardener to use saved seeds from unusual or favorite varieties that might be unavailable or hard to find. You will need to plan ahead to time germination correctly, assemble basic equipment, and devote a small amount of time to maintaining proper conditions for your seed beds. Germinate seeds. A commercially packaged medium is convenient, and most transplants can be grown in the same formulation. The container you use to germinate should be 2-3 inches deep, with drainage holes in the bottom. Moisten the medium and fill to within a halfinch of the top. Sow seeds in rows or scatter uniformly, at a rate of 10-20 seeds per square inch. Cover with a layer of medium. (Very small seeds, such as petunia, remain uncovered.) The seed packet will state whether the seeds require light or dark conditions for germination. Select a location where the temperature ranges from 70-80 degrees, but refer to the seed packet for specific instructions. Maintain a constant moisture level and sterile conditions. After germination, seedlings require light, either natural or artificial. Transplant seedlings. Within a few weeks, seedlings should be moved to larger containers to allow room for growth. Fertilize once, following instructions on container. A water-soluble h ouseplant fertilizer can be used. Maintain ideal temperatures and water levels to promote highest growth rates. Plan ahead to time your transplanting to the first frost-free date in your area, which can vary from late April to mid to late May. Seeds that germinate in six to 10 days usually are ready to be transplanted outside in five to eight weeks. Plants that take 10-20 days are usually ready for the garden in eight to 14 weeks. For more information on home gardening and transplanting, refer to http://www. ca.uky.edu/agc/pubs/ho/ ho56/ho56.htm or contact the Bracken County Cooperative Extension Service. Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
