  • Season 6 of AMC’s “Mad Men” ended recently with the main character, Don Draper, finally (Hopefully) hitting rock bottom.
    For the first five seasons, the Madison Avenue ad man of the 1960s was the man every other man wanted to be and the man every woman wanted to be with.
    Smooth, handsome, supremely talented at his job, he could charm his way into or out of anything.
    At the same time, Don Draper lived a lie. Born Dick Whitman, he grew up dirt poor in a Pennsylvania whorehouse, the son of a prostitute.

    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).
