  • * Cynthiana Democrat, April 12, 1951 - “The Harrison Hi Thoroughbreds copped their opening diamond encounter when they racked up an 8-2 victory over the Bourbon County Vocational Hi Tuesday at Paris. Billy Switzer was the winning moundsman, allowing only one safety and no earned runs. His slants were stopped by Eddie Whitson. Whitson and Harold Feeback were credited with two hits each and Gasser accounted for a triple. For the losers, Dailey and Pridemore were on the mound.

  • There is a strange emotional thing that happens to gardeners as the summer comes to a close. Our gardens look a bit ragged and are beginning to go dormant. By now my enthusiasm for gardening is replaced by my ambitions for what I want my garden to look like next year. It’s perfect timing, really, because fall in Kentuckiana is the best time to plant. No more droughts or 90 degree days.

  • I’ve followed the All-America Selections for as long as I can remember. It was always a designation that my father trusted and we often trialed the plants in our own family garden the year prior to their introduction. Some of the more memorable plants include ‘Purple Wave’ petunia, ‘Magestic Giants’ pansy mix, and the ‘Profusion’ zinnias. Sure, there were memorable vegetables in the past but it seems as though the AAS is responding to the increase in vegetable gardening interest by including more vegetables then ever each year.
