  • Part 2: Lawn fertilization in Kentucky

    Farm vs. specialty fertilizers

    Lawns can be fertilized with specialty turf fertilizers (normally available at local garden centers) or with farm fertilizers. The main advantages to the specialty fertilizers are:

    •Normally good nutrient ratios for turf.

    •Uniformity of particle size.

    •Low burn potential.

    •Calibration and application rate information printed on the bag.

    Most farm fertilizers do not have these advantages, but farm fertilizers are usually three to five time less expensive.

  • First writer’s workshop was ‘a job well done,’ says Grannis

    To the editor:

    Wow! Bruce Florence, director of MCTC-LVC has pulled off some more of her “magic” up on the hilltop this past weekend! I am referring to the writer’s workshop.

    There was a full house at The Prizing House on South Church Street Friday evening, where 15 noted authors set up for a “mini” book fair, wonderful buffet dinner, live folk band from Morehead and a keynote address by Kentucky’s Poet Laureate Gurney Norman.

  • Harrison County youth missed call to be great Americans

    To the editor:

    I heard that Harrison County schools had not aired the President’s speech to school children. I thought, at the time, it must have been an isolated situation - surely the entire system would not have denied our own President the first amendment rights.

    I stand corrected.

  • ‘Harrison County School System, Grade F’

    When I sent my child to school last Tuesday it was with the full expectation that he would have the opportunity to view the President’s address to students. As I came to find out, the vast majority of students in Harrison County were not given the chance to view the address at that time. I began making phone calls to uncover the reasoning behind this.
