  • Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Jeremy M. Spears, a 2006 graduate of Harrison County High School, Cynthiana, Ky., recently completed Naval Nuclear Power Training Pipeline.
    During the course with Nuclear Power Training Unit, Ballston Spa, N.Y., Spears received instruction about nuclear theory, chemistry, physics, reactor operations, safety and security. Upon completion of the course, Spears qualified as a Naval nuclear operator.
    Spears joined the Navy in April 2009.

  • The carpenter bees are doing a number on our house. We perfectly fit the profile of a desirable place to lay your eggs for this rather docile bee and they are busy around the frame of the garage as I write.  I do have a plan.
    Carpenter bees are essentially harmless. The male, who hovers about, has no stinger. The female tunnels and lays her eggs; when she does come out you would have to handle her for her to sting.  
    I’ve never been stung by one and they sort of become acquaintances because they are always there hovering about.  

  • On May 4, President Obama declared 14 Kentucky counties as disaster areas due to damages and losses caused by severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding that occurred from April 26, and continuing. Those counties are Boone, Bracken, Campbell, Carroll, Carter, Fleming, Gallatin, Kenton, Lawrence, Morgan, Nicholas, Oldham, Owen and Washington.
    As a result of the declaration, 29 Kentucky counties were named as contiguous counties where eligible family farmers may qualify for FSA EM loan assistance pursuant to Section 321(a) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act.

  • With spring planting underway, the Farm Service Agency is reminding producers to timely report any prevented or failed acreage to their local office.

  • I ran into Randy Riggs last week.
    It’s been a few years since I’ve seen him, and every time I do he oozes God.
    The rest of this column is a rerun of what I wrote about my first encounter with him in October 2000:
    I don’t know Randy Riggs well, but I love him with all my heart. That’s because God used him to whack me over the head when I needed whacking.
    Sometimes God does that.
