  • The Harrison County Conservation District is accepting applications for the 2016 Gateway/Barn Access Erosion Control Program through the month of June. The purpose of the gateway/barn access erosion program is to assist landowners with the necessary means to repair gateways and barn entrances to reduce degradation, soil erosion, and pollution.

    Connnersville Christian Church, 2190 Ky. Hwy. 1842 E., will accept shoes through June 24.
    Connersville Church is encouraging the community of Cynthiana to get involved and help them reach their 10,000 pairs of shoes goal. If they reach this goal, they win a custom shoe distribution and will give back 100 pair of new shoes to their community.

  • I was entertained by Bill Engvall’s parody in one of our local businesses just the other day. It hasn’t lost its comic appeal.

  • I wish you could walk in my shoes.
    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.
    I have three pairs -- black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones.
    They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.
    I love these shoes.

  • I have a very small arsenal of insecticides and what I do have are considered bio-insecticides.
    Bio-insecticides are derived from naturally occurring micro-organisms like bacterium. They also include plant oils and compounds (like neem oil which acts as both an insecticide and fungicide), viruses and protozoa. When we use a bio-insecticide we are essentially using nature to eat nature.
