  • Seventy five years ago in 1939 on the first Wednesday in September, Ewalt Homemakers Club was founded. Eleven Bourbon County ladies who lived near Ewalt’s Crossroads gathered at the home of Mrs. Allan Adair on Clay Kiser Road to organize the Ewalt Homemakers Club.

  • Bob Pierce, Tobacco Specialist with the University of Kentucky has reported that Blue Mold has been found in Lewis, Mason, Jackson and Clay Counties in Eastern Kentucky.
    Anyone with tobacco set in mid-June should be watching very closely with our current weather conditions. We would encourage anyone who is approaching topping time go ahead and top the tobacco and spray it with MH-30. This should reduce the chances of Blue Mold once the growth patterns have slowed on the tobacco.

  • USDA Kentucky Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director, John W. McCauley, reminds producers that as of Aug. 6, producers with acres under contract through the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) can apply for early contract termination, as required by the 2014 Farm Bill. The deadline to request early CRP contract termination is Jan. 30, 2015.

  • You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?  Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away.  Well, that’s never really been a problem for me.  I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual.  Others, however, have not been so blessed.

  • In January 2013 I was blessed to be able to go to the Holy Land with our Bishop, Lindsey Davis and His wife, Jennifer Mink Davis. There were many who also attended this journey and came from all parts of Kentucky. We all met in Philadelphia and traveled together on one big plane. It was a long flight which took about 13 hours before landing in Israel. Our flight left very late that evening, and once I boarded the aircraft, even though very excited, I prepared myself to go to sleep for the beginning of the flight.
