  • In 2007, Australian diver Eric Nerhus reported being swallowed by a great white shark.
    He said it was like being trapped in a cave.
    He told the London-based newspaper The Daily Telegraph that one minute he was “prying abalone off the rocks with a chisel; the next he found his head, torso and one arm enclosed by the killer shark’s razor-sharp teeth.”
    He escaped after stabbing the shark in the eye with his chisel.

  • Spring planting of strawberries is recommended for Kentuckiana, as early as March. The key to a good crop is to plant them in the right spot and to choose the right variety … and this is where it can be a little confusing.
    There are several different categories of strawberries including June-bearing, ever-bearing and day-neutral.  
    June-bearing varieties have traditionally been the best tasting and these are the ones that must be pinched in the first year, producing a late spring crop the following year.
