Winterizing your home is important to storm water quality PDF Print E-mail

Mittens check, Toboggan check, Shovel check, salt for driveway not so fast. As this winter approaches faster than we want it to, it is time to check and review your plans for the winter season. If you use salt as a way to melt the ice and snow from your walkway and driveway, the Floyd County and New Albany Stormwater Departments would like to suggest other alternatives that work just as well but are friendlier to our environment, especially storm water runoff.
One of the most popular ways to melt snow and ice is the use of rock salt. Rock salt, which promotes the melting of snow and ice, also causes the erosion of masonry surfaces, particularly where the base of the brick or stone building meets the sidewalks. So if you want to prevent replacing these types of surfaces, try of the following, calcium chloride, also known as “white pellets” or “flakes,” which is less damaging to buildings, sidewalks and plants. Even less harmful, is a de-icing product that contains potassium chloride. Rock salt is also ineffective when temperatures fall below 22 degrees Fahrenheit. A build-up of salt can cause your lawn and grasses to “smother” under the snow as the salt prevents your lawns from getting the needed oxygen it needs to live through its dormant stages. Try to spread your de-icer only before a storm is about to commence.

Two of The Depot railroad museum’s volunteers were honored at the Washington County Historical Society’s quarterly meeting Saturday, Nov. 20.
Jimmy Snook,  Clarksville, was named Volunteer of the Year for his work with The Depot’s caboose and rail car exhibit. Snook, a  retired conductor with the Louisville & Nashville and its successor railroads for 40 years, transformed Monon caboose 81402 from a static display to a real-life example  of a working caboose. He conducts tours of 81402 for individuals and groups, explains how rail motor cars were used by workers and demonstrates various railroad bells and whistles with an air-powered exhibit he helped design and create.

NAHS FFA and FCHS FFA Memorabilia available for past FFA Members

 

Floyd County Farm Bureau with the help of the senior class of Prosser FFA have saved all of the scrapbooks, awards and photos from the New Albany High School FFA Chapter. Mr. Patrick Pfiefer retired from NAHS this past summer and for his final wish, has asked us to distribute these items to the rightful owners. Since the New Albany school system decided to close the horticulture program for it’s students after Mr. Pfiefer’s retirement last May, he did not want to throw away a lifetime of awards that this outstanding program generated and should go back its former NAHS FFA members.

Founded in 1928, FFA has educated millions of students on public speaking, horticulture/agriculture education, talent, business ethics, and much more along with awarding millions of dollars in scholarship money across the country. The New Albany FFA Chapter began in 1949, ending in 2010, having been a chapter of the school for 61 years.

At the beginning of this school year, Mr. Mike Johnson with the help of his senior class Prosser FFA members have boxed, categorized and labeled all of the contents for Farm Bureau to distribute. With their help of organizing all of the memorabilia, we would like to let all former NAHS FFA members between the classes of 1953 to 2001, along with Floyd Central class 1968 and 1989, to pick up their items at the New Albany Floyd County Farm Bureau office located on 4008 Northside Drive, off of Charlestown Road across from Meijers. You may call FCFB Board Member Jamie Schilmiller at 502-648-1337 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you have any questions or would like to obtain more information on what items are available to you.

Hundreds of items are available on a first-come first-served basis. Also there are dozens of items with school years dated on them but with no names, so if you know that you attended NAHS FFA in a specific year, feel free to contact Jamie or via email to find out what items are available to you for your FFA class year. Hundreds of items are available for almost every year starting in 1950 thru 1985.

These can make great Christmas gifts, bringing back years of memories. If you know of a loved one that would like to have one of these items, please let us know so that you can pick it up before the holidays.

The following is a list of person’s names that plaques, photos, scrapbooks or newspaper clippings were found with the class year (if available). Note: Most items available are pre-1990 for NAHS FFA and only for 1968 & 1989 for FCHS FFA.
