  • *Cynthiana Democrat, Oct. 23, 1942 -- “Keys Being Solicited Now. - A call has come to Harrison County for the donation of any old and unused keys. Keys are made of various metals, mostly high grade metals being used. Instead of placing the keys with the regular scrap it is urged that keys be left at the Pope & Turner Barber Shop, from which point they will be sent directly to Washington. One key box at Hatterick’s Meat Market has been filled and the second one has been started.” (WWII)

  • It’s been hot and humid the last few weeks!  I was hopeful that this summer was going to be idyllic…at least we got pop-up rain storms to keep things hydrated. These 90-degree days, however, are putting us on track for some serious heat. Some of our vegetables will love it and some will not.  
    I know we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a 90-degree day but we can provide some shade for our plants on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.

  • “If the word noble had to be applied to only one kind of tree, the honor would probably go to the Beech.”- James Crockett
    I must agree with Mr. Crockett’s sentiment. The Beech remains one of my favorite trees. They make great shade trees with a very low canopy, often touching the ground.  
    Beeches are stately trees that can be easily identified in the fall because of their golden color; and in the winter because the leaves have a tendency to remain attached to the tree.
