  • The Kentucky Division of Forestry (KDF) is again preparing for an active wildfire season. Each year, nearly 1,500 wildfires occur in the state of Kentucky based on the 10-year average.

  • Residents living in and around Cynthiana, Ky. can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other chronic, serious conditions with affordable screenings by Life Line Screening. The Harrison County Extension Office will host this community event on Oct. 24. The site is located at 668 New Lair Road in Cynthiana.

    Screenings can check for:

    • The level of plaque buildup in your arteries, related to risk for heart disease, stroke and overall vascular health.

  • Some plants are prolific; some are not.  Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.   Woody plants can be a bit more elusive.  I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone nor an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath its canopy.  Starting woody plants from seed can be tricky. 

  • Basic embroidery is going to be taught on Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office. There is no charge for the class. If you are interested in learning to embroider and have never tried it before, or if you need a refresher course, this is your opportunity. You will need to bring with you a 7” embroidery hoop, embroidery needles and a pair of scissors. If enough interest is shown in this class, an advanced class will be offered at a later date.
