  • Poison ivy, devious

    I’ve noticed more poison ivy this year than I recall in previous years.  
    Maybe I am more observant or maybe the farm is just weedier. Either way it makes people nervous.  
    I am not particularly allergic to this devious vine but Andy, my husband, will blister like being burned by fire whenever he comes into contact with it.  
    A few years ago we were trimming sheep hooves (sheep will eat poison ivy with no ill effects) and Andy inadvertently kneeled in some manure as we set to the task.

  • Be thankful for our freedoms this holiday

    As many of us prepare for the July Fourth holiday, I encourage you to join me in being thankful of the freedoms we enjoy.
    Though discouraging news can be hard to understand, such as the recent shootings in South Carolina, the resilience of the people in Charleston, and the discussion that has developed from that, are results of our free society.
    Unfortunately, sometimes people take advantage of the freedom to do harm, but Americans show that we can unite and figure our way through a difficult time to a better place.

  • Rus Whalen wins 51st annual Joe Mooney Invitational

    The description of always in contention but has never won no longer can be used to describe Rus Whalen.  
    Whalen led from an opening birdie on the first hole to the end of the tournament to win the 51st annual Joe Mooney Invitational held at the Cynthiana Country Club last weekend.  

  • This 4th, thank soldiers, founding fathers

    Kentucky may not have yet been a state when our country declared its independence nearly 240 years ago, but as we prepare to celebrate that anniversary this weekend, it is worth pointing out we do have ties to this early period.
    We were home to about a half-dozen skirmishes during the Revolutionary War, for example, including what is widely believed to be its last: The Battle of Blue Licks in nearby Robertson County.
