  • The 2011 Perennial Plant of the Year is Amsonia hubrichtii, or Arkansas blue star. We have long enjoyed Amsonia tabernaemontana, Arkansas blue star’s less refined cousin, in the garden; but A. hubrichtii takes the prize for superior multi-season interest.

  • The 2011 Harrison County Farmers Market will open at Flat Run Veterans Park on Saturday, April 30. The market will open at 9 a.m. At the present time flowers, crafts and some early spring vegetables should be available.

  • All 4-H Horticulture and other interested 4-H students are invited to attend a meeting at the Harrison County Extension on May 3 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to introduce a program called “Plant A Row.” As you raise your vegetables and fruits this year, we would like to take a few minutes of your time to tell you how you can make a difference in our community and help out the Cynthiana Food Pantry.

  • A Bracken County resident has been given his first senior pastor position at a country church in Harrison county.
    Keith Hemphill, a Grant’s Lick Ky., native, turned from being a very shy and reserved Christian to being a voice for God.

  • The Kentucky State Parks will again offer the Family Adventure Quest – a trivia and digital photo contest for families and friends in teams of two to six people.
    The Family Adventure Quest presents a series of challenges that teams complete by traveling and taking photos at state parks across Kentucky. It’s a great way to explore the outdoors.
    While some challenges will simply require a little thinking, many will require a visit to different state parks and use of a digital camera to show your team along your journey.
