  • United Methodist Women holds annual ‘Ladies Night Out’ event

    The United Methodist Women of the First United Methodist Church met Thursday, May 4. It was the annual event of “Ladies Night Out.” There were 46 women present.
    Barbara Harris, co-president, welcomed the women to the meeting. Virgie Wells, co-president, reminded the women of the worldwide work that the United Methodist Women accomplish. It is heart warming to know that our work continues after 150 years.
    Esther Coy blessed the food. A meal catered by Kara Godman, and served by school children, very efficiently, was enjoyed by everyone.

  • Tomatoes like it warm

    I have patiently waited for some summer-like heat to arrive before planting my pepper and tomato plants.  Now that the forecast calls for warm spring nights the coast is clear for summer vegetables.  
    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.  
    First thing first: Always wait until our frost-free date (on average this is May 10, give or take a week depending on where you are located).

  • Injured and orphaned wildlife should be left alone

    Wildlife Biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources recommend people to leave wildlife alone that appear to be abandoned.
    People pick up seemingly abandoned wildlife with the best of intentions, but do more to harm the animal than to help it.
    As a general rule, wildlife do not make good pets and are not truly abandoned when found in the wild. White-tailed deer and other species of wildlife leave their young for extended periods of time each day, only to return and take care of them.

  • Flowering vines adds color to landscape problems

    Annual and perennial vines can be a colorful answer to many landscape problems.  
    Do you have an unsightly wall, hate that chain-linked fence or mail box? Or maybe you just have a spot that needs some summer color?  
    Perennial vines like clematis, honeysuckle and the non-blooming, deciduous Virginia creeper can add color and texture to any area were a climbing environment is offered.
