Wow. It knocked the cabin completely off it's foundation! Thankfully the 6 in the cabin where ok.

Early this morning, a storm knocked a tree down and the tree fell into a cabin at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park. Six guests were staying in the cabin, and luckily all six made it out. EMS, Kentucky State Police and park staff responded quickly to the incident. We are still gathering information at this time. The safety of our guests remains our top priority. #kystateparks

Tired of mosquito's in your livestock water trough's? You may want some goldfish or rosey reds for smaller troughs! Goldfish make great pets.

Aside from being fun and easy pets, did you know they’re also useful? Oh, yes. Goldfish can also help keep your horses’ water trough clean—under the right conditions, of course.

Goldfish can live off the algae growing on the trough walls and floor, and they will also eat mosquito larvae (yay!), as well as some insects that may fall into the water. This great, right?

But before you rush out and buy a dozen goldfish, there are a few things to know.

Here are eight helpful tips to heed when adding goldfish to your water trough:

1. More fish does not equal a cleaner tank
In fact, two goldfish in a 55-gallon tank is often plenty. Overstocking fish will lead to ammonia build-up, creating an unhealthy living environment for the fish and undesirable drinking water for your horses.

2. Ease your fish into their new home
Before dumping the fish into your water trough, first get them acclimated by keeping them in the bag they came in and allowing them to float in the trough overnight (or for several hours). Then you can set those suckers free!

3. Don’t feed your goldfish
While this may sound cruel, the whole point of having fish in the tank is to help keep it free from algae, larvae, and bugs, right? So let your fish do just that. If you stock your tank appropriately, there will be enough natural matter for your fish to live and even thrive off of. Overfeeding just leads to more fish poop, which will upset the natural biological balance of the tank.

4. For best chances of fish survival, water temperature should be at least 60° Fahrenheit.
That said, many people have reported success in much hotter and/or colder climates.

5. When the fish are small, take them inside before the first fall frost
Put them back out again in summer. The larger the fish get, the better they will be able to cope with living outdoors year-round.

6. Add a couple bricks or rocks in the bottom of the tank
This will give the fish a place to hide out and find shade, if needed.

7. Keep your trough filled regularly
In other words, don’t let the horses drink it down to near the bottom before refiling.

8. After a while, you may notice that your goldfish have multiplied
This just means they’re happy and thriving. But at the same time, you don’t want your tank to be overstocked, so pull out a few and give them to a friend (or keep them as “back-ups” inside).

So what are you waiting for? Give goldfish a try!

#6 Shiners are back. Goldfish are here also! See pictures.

Boats can now get in and out of our parking lot with ease. Thanks to the Clinton County road department for getting our tile put in quickly!

Authorities warn businesses, consumers that counterfeit bills are circulating in big numbers here Businesses in town should beware and be on alert, according to Clinton County Sheriff Jeff Vincent and Albany Police Chief Chris Neal. Counterfeit bills have been circulating inside the county and it’s getting hard to tell the real from the fake. id="0">

Gravel fully spread. Now we are just waiting on the road department to install the tiles.

With all the rain. We see this. Please do not throw out your trash. This trash is on Lake Cumberland in the Waitsboro area. All the rain has washed it into the lake.

We have some new plastics in stock with 3000 more pieces on the way and should be here by the end of the week. 30 more different types/colors. Most of the packs pictured are 10 per pack @ $2.00 each.

We got our gravel unloaded down here and we went to get the tractor and it has a completely flat tire. We are working to find a way to get the gravel out of the main pull in. It may not be until tomorrow afternoon. If you have a boat you may want to park in the boat storage area until we can get it removed from that area of the entrance. Then by the end of next week will will have a new 36 foot wide entrance to allow boats plenty of room to park, turn, and pull out without it being dangerous. We are sorry for the inconveniences. There is still enough room for trucks and cars.

Googan orders are ready to be picked up.
