  • Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy getting together with classmates and old friends??
    On Saturday, June 27, the Cynthiana High School held it’s annual Alumni Banquet. It was the 60th anniversary of the Class of 1955. This year’s banquet was held at the Harrison County Extension Office on New Lair Road. A meal was prepared and served by B & B Catering of Cynthiana. Officers, trustees and other graduates decorated each table with votive candles and green and white balloons, resulting in a festive look for the banquet.

  • The insect world has countless sucking and chewing pests.  
    One of the most difficult questions to answer, and I get asked it often, is “what’s eating my plant?”  
    It could be a chewing beetle, or caterpillar; or it could be a sucking spider mite, bug or aphid, among many, many others. The current heat adds an additional component to the problem … many insects love this sort of disagreeable weather and can multiply more rapidly as a result.
    There are a couple of indicators of the type of pest problem you may have.  

  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Kentucky Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director John W. McCauley announces that an additional 1,100 acres of agricultural land in Kentucky is eligible for funding for wildlife habitat restoration.

  • The fact that you’re only one believer among bazillions doesn’t cheapen your value to God.
    If you were the only person on the planet, Christ still would have died for you. The Bible proves that point:
    When God first issued his promise to rescue sinful humankind, there was only one couple on earth.
    After Adam and Eve sinned, God promised to crush Satan’s head. [Cool, huh?]
    God was talking about the victory over sin that Christ’s death on the cross would bring.
