  • * Cynthiana News, Feb. 25, 1869 -- “Mr. R. Boothroyal and B. F. Utley have taken over the Cynthiana Woolen Mills and propose to commence operations about April 1. They are practical men and are repairing their machinery at this time and making ready to start. They feel certain they can give satisfaction.”

  • It’s time to start it all over again, thank goodness!
    I had to buy some potatoes from the grocery a few weeks back because we had finally finished all that were stored in the basement.    
    Home grown potatoes, even the old ones in their slightly shriveled state, are far superior than the kind that come in a plastic bag.  
    I am really ready to get my hands in the soil and planting potatoes is just the thing to get the season rolling.

  • Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announces comprehensive outreach efforts are underway to assess damage and assist rural Midwest and Southern communities in the wake of recent deadly storms.
    “These storms struck the very heart of rural America,” said Vilsack. “USDA regional and local staff members are on the front lines, have worked each day since the storms hit, and for many it’s personal: they live and work alongside the victims. I’ve directed our expertise and resources be put to the fullest possible use.”

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) invites minority farmers and ranchers in Harrison County and across the nation to voluntarily join the USDA Minority Farm Register to receive information and opportunities from USDA agencies.

  • USDA officials learned that fraudulent letters are being sent by FAX to individuals and businesses in at least four states. The letters purportedly come from a USDA procurement officer and seek personal information. These letters are false and in no case should a recipient respond with personal and financial information.

  • All this past week I’ve been talking to people with scars for a series of stories that I wrote for the newspaper where I work.
    I got the idea from a photographer I heard on the radio, talking about a series of photos he had done of people’s scars.
    He said that every scar tells a story.
    When I was 9, I bent down to say “hi” to Sam Lang’s Basset hound and it jumped up and bit my face, tearing a hole from the right edge of my lip to my chin.
