  • If you have a garden chances are you appreciate nature in all its glory.  
    But, sometimes nature gets in the way of our desires to cultivate.  
    Deer browsing, rabbit munching, squirrel digging, bird pecking, mole trenching and resident vole feasting have all come up in the last two weeks.  
    While I have no silver bullet for any of these problems, I do have some practical approaches to offset the shared use of our gardens.  
    Squirrels are notorious for taking one bite of a tomato and then throwing it on the ground.

  • This year’s Cynthiana Idol contest was one of the best in its five-year history. Eighteen contestants auditioned in April but by the end of four weeks only one remained.  
    Mason Jessie, 24, beat out finalists Kelsie Renee and Whitney Tobin to win the contest. Other semi-finalists were Brooklin Wiggins, Aleesha Tapp and David Gauze.  
    To win, Mason had to impress a panel of judges and garner enough audience votes to get through four rounds of performances. However, the final win came down to 100 percent audience vote.
