A book of barns

The Kentucky Vocational Agriculture Teacher’s Association
has compiled Barns of Kentucky, a 160-page, hardcover book with some 250 color
and black-and-white photographs of both modern and historic barns from all over
the state. The book is intended to preserve Kentucky’s heritage, involve FFA
members, and provide funds for FFA scholarships. The project was sponsored by
the Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative Association. The book is available for
$39.95 plus $4.95 shipping by making a check out to KVATA and sending it to
KVATA, c/o Doug Wilson/ Jackson County High School, P.O. Box 427, McKee, KY
40447. There are also 40 leather-bound editions available for $99.95 each with
free shipping. All funds from sales of the book will be used for scholarships
in Kentucky. For more information call Doug Wilson at (606) 287-7193 or (606)

Fishing with 4-H

A sports fishing educational program is coming
to Kentucky 4-H and will allow youth to go fishing, make tackle, learn the ecology
of fishing, photography, rod building, and take field trips.

"Extension 4-H/youth development agents and
volunteers will teach members the basics of fishing," says Carol Hanley,
Extension specialist for 4-H/youth development at the University of Kentucky
College of Agriculture. "They also will get assistance from the Kentucky
Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources."

Hanley said agents are encouraged to take part in
organizing the program by getting volunteers and offering to help in the area
and/or county.

A spring meeting is being planned for leaders to
start training and go fishing. For more information contact your county cooperative
Extension office or Carol Hanley at (859) 257-5961 ext.251.- Gidget High
