  • Honeybee fall management workshop today at Perry Central

    LEOPOLD – With fall on the way, it is time to start thinking about how we will help the bees build their stores for winter.

    The condition of the colony going into winter is vital to winter survival. Healthy “fat” bees with low mite populations and good honey supplies stand the best chance of overwintering well, particularly in very cold winters.

    Fall mite treatments contribute to a hive’s overwintering success.

  • Gun raffle to benefit historic Rome

    ROME – Rome was a thriving community in 1818-19 when the first courthouse in Indiana was built. The Rome-Vincennes Trace was a major gateway to the West with ferry service from Kentucky beginning the 1790s.

    The railroad across the river was the beginning of the fall of Rome. After Cannelton “stole” the county court in a rowboat down the Ohio River, the courthouse survived as Rome Academy, next as a high school from 1908 to 1935, and continuing as a grade school which closed in 1966.
