Free workshop on stream issues tonight

A Saving Your Streambanks Workshop will be 6-7:30 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, Oct. 2) at the Boyle County Extension Office, 99 Corporate Drive. This is a free workshop focusing on the many challenges Kentucky streams face from day-to-day urban and agricultural activities. When we look for answers to our streambank erosion and water quality issues, it’s important to look holistically at the causes, including: What are the outside factors affecting the stream off-property? What is happening on my property that may be affecting the stream? What does the stream look like on my property, and ow could that be affecting the problem?

More information, additional workshop dates and registration can be found at bggreensource.org/riparian-buffers/ or email  Lindsie Nicholas at lindsie@bggreensource.org.

Correction

The article “Voters unlikely to see 54th District candidates square off in public” that appeared in Friday’s paper incorrectly stated that no Democrat filed to run in the primary election for the 54th District Kentucky House of Representatives seat. Anne Ray Streeter initially filed for the primary, but later withdrew. There is no Democratic nominee in the race.
