Johnson County Fair Time
It's county fair time in Johnson County. Our office has been busy all summer preparing. It's also the culmination of the 4-H year. Come on out and see the sights and sounds. Our 4-H youth submit their projects for judging and you can see the results in the 4-H Green Building and the Livestock Arena. You can even bid on projects at the food auction and 4-H project auction. Plus, there's the carnival rides -- always a thrill. The Johnson County Fair truly is a week of family fun!

Summer Continues: Tips for this time of year
Summer heat and humidity are upon us. But some things in the garden still need our attention, like strawberries and garden containers. Believe it or not, now is also a good time to start a fall vegetable garden. Many vegetables grow and taste better in the fall.
Your refrigerator is one of the hardest working appliances in your household. This month we outline some tips from the USDA on freezer storage to maintain quality and food safety.
The summer heat also can cause toxic blue-green algae. We include a warning to pet owners to understand the bacteria's dangers for their pets and for themselves.
