  • By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for horticulture
    Once autumn leaves have fallen, mistletoe becomes highly visible on large trees throughout Kentucky. Phoradendron, the scientific name for Kentucky’s most common variety of this parasitic plant, means “tree thief”. These small leafy plants are commonly found on twigs and branches of many hardwood species in the southern United States. Mistletoe extracts - steals - water, mineral elements and food from tree hosts; hence the name.

  • Omega chapter of Beta Sigma Phi sorority met on Monday, Nov. 4 at the home of Lois Judy. Two members were absent.

  • It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us!
    I have family visiting for Christmas so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday? Do you get a fresh-cut, artificial, balled-and-burlapped? Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?

  • Last Saturday, Larry Silverman caught a catfish, which he considers a miracle, a moment of light after a year of incredible darkness.
    Larry is the pastor of New Covenant of Grace Fellowship in Inverness, FL.
    Last year, Larry had a loose tooth, and shortly after he had it pulled he was diagnosed with cancer in his mouth. As a result, he had part of his tongue removed and his jaw reconstructed using a bone and skin from his leg. He now eats through a feeding tube.

  • As I think about the times of growing up on the farm living in an old two story house that was built without or with very little, if any, insulation was a time of being thankful that God was truly watching over my family.
