  • •Alitia Marie Haitz and Jeremy Wayne Hill will marry Sept. 12, 2009 in Paris, Ky. A reception will follow immediately after the ceremony.

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture reminds producers that the sign-up deadline to elect the new Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program is Aug. 14.

    ACRE provides a valuable new risk-management tool for producers. ACRE was created in the 2008 Farm Bill, and offers a revenue-based alternative to the traditional Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP). Producers may elect to participate in ACRE even if they have already received an advance DCP payment for 2009.

  • I have a pretty relaxed attitude about the lawn. I don’t mind some weeds or letting some areas just grow. In fact, I would prefer to maintain as small a turf plot as possible, but with 18 acres that still translates into quite a bit of grass. 

    Most Americans have high expectations when it comes to the lawn; my first piece of advice is to lower these. Second, find a reasonable balance between accepting a decent enough lawn, what’s reasonable in terms of its care and what kind of impact that care has on the environment.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, July 31, 1930 - “The Democrat’s Sycamore correspondent sends the following catfish story. Sunday morning after the storm of July 12th about 300 catfish were found floating on the top of the water in a large pond near the house of W. E. Jones. They were all dead, some 16 inches long. The strange part of the story is that later Mr. Jones had some boys go into the pond, which is nearly dry, and catch the remainder of the fish. They took out 260 and put them where there was more water and not one of them was a catfish. Just why did the catfish die?

  • Small stalks, small ears, poor kernel development… does this describe your corn crop this year?

    If it does, there may be several factors at work. Drought at the wrong time can stunt your corn crop (haven’t had that this year); cold damage can stunt corn (if you put your crop out early, you could see a little stunting from a late spring cold snap); and poor drainage and poor soil fertility, especially nitrogen, can stunt the crop as well.
