    As one of the newest and youngest members of the Barlow Homemakers Club, I learn and laugh about many things that people my age do not. The monthly meetings are full of laughter, lessons and good food. I have learned a great deal from my fellow club members.

  • Last month a group of Cynthiana High School graduates visited with Mrs. Ron Ford at her home in Winchester, Ky. She and her husband recently purchased the old Colbyville Station Tavern and have since brought the old tavern back to its original beginnings. They have added two wings one of which was her beautiful glassed-in kitchen.
    While deciding to add an addition to the present house they went in search for matching bricks which brought them to the Griffith home in Harrison County.

  • There are some plants that demand good drainage:  taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few.  I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain I know where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  There is an upside to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver.

  •  USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) has announced fruit, vegetable and wild rice provisions that affect producers who intend to participate in certain programs authorized by the Agricultural Act of 2014.
    “Similar to previous programs that we’ve administered, planting fruits, vegetables or wild rice on base acres on a farm can result in a payment reduction for program participants,” said John W. McCauley, State Executive Director for the Kentucky FSA.
