By Mark Badertscher
As Hardin County farmers prepare for another spring planting, crop yields from the 2014 growing season have been released from the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service.  Although these crop production numbers are based on estimates, they are used for crop insurance and government reporting purposes.

According to a recently released report, 98,000 acres of corn were planted with 95,000 acres harvested in the county in 2014.  The county average yield was 167.9 bushels per acre, compared to 172.3 bushels per acre in 2013.

Apollo to hold Apollopalooza April 16

Apollo Career Center will hold its third annual Apollopalooza on April 16 from 5:30-7 p.m. Apollopalooza will showcase both the high school and adult education programs, as well as the newly opened academic and career tech wings. The event is free and open to the public.

“Because Apollo is not a traditional high school or college, and because adults and high school students are being trained during the day and evening, Apollo is opening up the building, for the public to see and experience what Apollo students learn everyday,” said Dana Dukes-Norton, district communications manager.
