  • A few weeks ago, a 4.1 earthquake hit Yorba Linda, Calif., the town where I spent my teen years growing up and near where some of my family still lives.
    My niece, Jennifer, was in the shower when the quake hit and things started shaking.
    In all the years I lived in California that was among my top 10 greatest fears — to be in the shower and have an earthquake hit and be buried in a pile of debris while naked or in some stage of undress.
    I even named my fear“They’llFindMeNakedaphobia.”

  • One of my favorite stories is the one where my friend Mike announced that he had given up pride for Lent.
    He was so proud of his decision, couldn’t wait to start. Just knew he’d nail it.
    That was about seven or so years ago and we still laugh about it.

  • John W. McCauley, USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director announces that calendar year 2012 brings several changes to the way FSA reports a producer’s farm program payments to the producer and to IRS.
    In past years, IRS Forms 1099-G would be issued to show all program payments received from the Farm Service Agency, regardless of the amount.

  • USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director John W. McCauley urges livestock producers affected by natural disasters such as Hurricane Isaac and the continuing drought to keep thorough records of their livestock and feed losses, including additional expenses for such things as feed purchases because of lost supplies.
    FSA recommends that owners and producers record all pertinent information of natural disaster consequences, including:

  • “Newly transplanted trees must remain hydrated in order for the natural process of root system regeneration to begin” writes Roger Harris, associate professor of horticulture at Virginia Polytechnic Institute.

    With record breaking heat and drought conditions for many in Kentuckiana, plants suffer the most if their care-giver is less than committed.
