  • In 2007, Australian diver Eric Nerhus reported being swallowed by a great white shark.

    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.

    WAREAGLE MINISTRIES

  • We welcome the arrival of spring. Sunshine encourages our hearts after 2015’s winter snowfalls. Colorful carpets of daffodils and tulips brighten the Central Kentucky pre-Easter landscape. Inhale deeply, exhale slowly the refreshing newness of spring.
    One of the objectives of writing articles for the Cynthiana / Harrison County Ministerial Association includes letting the community get to know the members. Communication through reflective writing fills the bill.
