Today's Features

  • I am plotting and planning and placing orders for onion sets and seed potatoes and summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm.
    I can barely stand the wait!  
    I have two trays of seedlings that I started about two weeks ago and have begun another round of kale, broccoli and Brussels sprouts in three more trays.
    My set up is not elaborate; it basically consists of a kit that includes a plastic dome that fits over a seed tray and pan.  

  • Late January brought USDA’s Cattle Inventory report, which provided an estimate of cattle numbers across the US. As expected, beef herd liquidation continued during 2011, despite the stronger fall markets. The severe drought that plagued much of the southern plains pushed many cows to slaughter and forced many ranchers to reduce their herd size. Estimated beef cow numbers fell by three percent, which is the largest single year decrease in many years.

  • Crystal Moore, a newly certified Jazzercise instructor, earned the right to teach Jazzercise by completing a three-day workshop and performing a letter-perfect audition.
    Becoming a Jazzercise instructor requires dedication and training. Moore recently participated in a workshop in West Chester, Ohio, sponsored by the Franchise Programs and Services Department of Jazzercise, Inc.

  • Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) Dental Hygiene student, Kacey L. Muntz, has been named the 2011 recipient of the L.R. Bean Dental Radiology Award.
    The award is named for Dr. L. R. Bean who taught dental radiology at Lexington Community College (now BCTC) for more than 17 years. In 1991, he created an endowment for a dental hygiene student who showed ‘empathy with patients, a sense of humor, and exceptional abilities in the area of oral radiology.’ Since Bean’s death, his family has continued to sponsor the scholarship.
