  • I am feeling optimistic about our springtime weather and am as anxious as anyone to move some of my houseplants outdoors: my gardenia looks terrible in the dining room and the jasmine down stairs seems to stare into space dreaming of better days; those days are coming, just be slow about the transition from indoors to out.  
    Nothing compares to the restorative powers of the great outdoors: more light, warmth, higher relative humidity and rain water, this is what all our indoor plants are longing for.   

  • Sue Carrol Moberly Lake and Robert Stewart Lake will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on April 8. They were married at Union Baptist Church on April 8, 1967.
    They have two daughters, Meredith Lake of New Orleans and Katherine Lake of Cynthiana.
    The photo of Robert and Sue was taken in 1967 at the home of Louise and Robert Lake on Republican Pike. Croquet was quite a sport then.

  • Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.  
    When done properly is can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials but which type of mulch suits your needs best?
    Predominately, we use organic materials for mulching.  
    Organic mulches include plant or animal derived materials like wood chips, pine needles, tree bark, grass clippings, composted manure, and worm castings.

  • Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles has announced that the comment period for a proposed federal regulation on smokeless tobacco products has been extended from April 10 to July 10.
    “This proposed rule would have a devastating economic impact on dark tobacco growers and businesses in Kentucky,” Quarles said. “If enacted, it would have the effect of banning the sale of smokeless tobacco in the United States. I urge anyone who has an interest to send your comments to Washington and let your voice be heard.”

    When we consider the phrase, “working for the Lord,” most of us think about the tasks we perform at our church. Tasks that include teaching, singing, serving as an usher, a committee person, janitor, grounds keeper, trustee, church treasurer, secretary, visitation ministry, etc. The list goes on and on.
    As important and necessary as these tasks are, did you know when we go to work each day to “earn a living,” we are working for the Lord?
