    SPECIAL NOTICES

  • I can hardly wait for this year’s first harvest of summer squash and it should be any day now.  
    There is fruit set and you know how quickly squash can mature.  
    Last year’s crop was not so robust because of the record heat, so I am optimistically counting on a bumper squash crop this year -- the weather is certainly on our side.
    The pest that challenges most gardeners and their squash is the squash vine borer.

  • Lewis (Ben) Furnish Jr. of Harrison County, Ky., is a member of Class X of the Kentucky Agricultural Leadership Program (KALP).

  • Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a disorder that occurs when an infant is born dependent on legally prescribed or illegally obtained drugs used by the mother during pregnancy. Hospitalizations in Kentucky for newborns with NAS climbed from 29 in 2000 to 730 in 2011-a staggering 2,400 percent increase. Unfortunately, NAS numbers will continue to climb in the Commonwealth of Kentucky without increased education and support for prevention efforts.
