  • Donna and I have been blessed to have our grandchildren in the house every week since they were born -- 9-plus years of blessing.

  • Bryson Tylor Clemons was born to Sydney Clemons of Cynthiana on Feb. 22, 2017 at Harrison Memorial Hospital.
    He weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz.

  • I have my orders placed for onion sets and seed potatoes along with some of my favorite summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm. I can barely stand the wait.
    I have just seeded out several trays of early season vegetables that like a cool start to the season. Kale, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are just beginning to push through the light potting mix.
    My set up is not elaborate; it basically consists of a kit that includes a plastic dome that fits over a seed tray and pan.

  • * Log Cabin, Nov. 11, 1910 -- “The Cynthiana Electric Light Co. asks that the public will please take notice that beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 1910, this company will give continuous service, which means our wires will be charged with electricity the whole time. Telephone and telegraph men, carpenters, painters, and everyone are hereby notified and cautioned not to handle or interfere with our wires or apparatus in any way during the day or night.” (Previously the electric lines were energized only at night.)

  • Last weekend I finally watched “Whiplash,” the movie with Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons.
    Miles grew up here in Citrus County, and J.K. Simmons is the bald guy in the Farmer’s Insurance commercials and used to be the psychiatrist on “Law and Order”, plus he was in a whole bunch of other stuff.
    The movie focuses on the relationship between Andrew Neiman (Teller), a student drummer at an elite Juilliard-type music school in New York City, and the studio jazz band instructor, Terence Fletcher (Simmons).

    Another member, Gladys Williamson, has been a member for 20 years. She is faithful and loves her club.
    The Connersville Club has five active members and three members-at-large. The club meets the first Thursday of each month.

  • By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    Although it’s still technically winter, it is never too soon to think about next growing season. This is particularly true if you want to grown onions.
