  • Gardens are beginning to bear the fruits of our labor. Soon, it will be time to start thinking about preserving some of the excess produce for winter months.

  • The late comedienne Gilda Radner used to say, “It’s always something.”
    In this life, it’s always something. There’s always something that’s your Achilles’ heel, your kryptonite, your downfall, your master. There’s always something that holds power over you, making you bow down to it, obey it. There’s always something that you start out loving and often end up hating because it eventually crushes you.
    But if you’re fortunate, it brings you to Jesus.

  • Bill Crist is similar in many ways to the members of the Cynthiana Lions Club he  spoke with on May 26 – working hard and taking pride in providing a quality product to customers. But unlike the typical local business, Crist’s most important asset is cows and his product is milk. Crist and his family are dairy farmers.
    The Crist family owns Crist Dairy near Edmonton, Kentucky. They milk 500 cows three times a day, every day.

  • My interest in hardy geraniums started around 1996.   In European gardens they were as commonplace as phlox was in American perennial gardens.  
    Twenty years later and hardy geraniums are available in all their glory at most garden centers.
    Experience has taught us which ones are suited to our warm summer climate.
    Most of us think of geraniums as an annual that we plant in our yards or in pots to add color to our patios during the summer months.  Well, this plant is actually a Pelargonium.  

  • Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announces that an additional 800,000 acres of highly environmentally sensitive land may be enrolled in Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) under certain wetland and wildlife initiatives that provide multiple benefits on the same land.

  • Mr. and Mrs. George Walters announces the engagement and upcoming wedding of their daughter, Autumn Rose Eckler to Phillip Ezekiel Sexton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Bostic, all of Cynthiana.
