    Historical Society. The Harrison County Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting on March 22 at 7 p.m. at the Bluegrass Care Navigators (Hospice), 1317 U.S. Hwy. 62 East. Enter the rear door. The meeting will focus on the evolution of the Whitaker-Hall House. Both are late 18th century houses, one log and the other stone. The Hall House, located in Harrison County, was dismantled and moved to join with the Whitaker House of Scott County. This will be something you will not want to miss.

  • Every time I mention that I haven’t seen a flying pig in a while, that’s when I do.
    FYI: In my world, a flying pig is something I want to see happen but have zero faith that it will. In other words, it will happen “when pigs fly.”
    Also in my world, whenever I am deep in the pit of doubt, that’s when I start getting flying pig sightings, whether it’s a line in a book or TV show or an image of a flying pig in a commercial or ad in a magazine.

  • If you have been following the Kentucky Men’s Basketball team this year you have no doubt heard the broadcaster at some point this season talk about confidence. For example, I believe I heard a thousand times that particular players weren’t playing with confidence.
    If one loses their confidence, they are not as effective as they could be.
    As this is true in sports and in any number of areas in life, it is true in the Christian life. Your effectiveness as a Christian will be linked to your confidence.

  • Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.
    When done properly it can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials, but which type of mulch suits your needs best?
    Predominately, we use organic materials for mulching. Organic mulches include plant- or animal-derived materials like wood chips, pine needles, tree bark, grass clippings, composted manure, and worm castings.
