  • Royals rain on Breds, 30-16, on the Hilltop

    The high-powered Mason County Royals (5-0) outlasted host Harrison County (2-3) in the rain and mud on Friday night at the Harrison County Athletic Complex, 30-16.

    Two Harrison County fumbles in the third quarter sealed the win for the top-ranked team in Class AAA.

    Trailing 22-16 at halftime, Harrison County took the second half kickoff and went on a 15-play drive that ate up much of the third quarter, only to turn the ball over to the Royals when senior running back Josh Moss fumbled on the 1 yard line.

  • Anticipating a spring bulb display

    When it comes to bulbs, we are not always met with consistent success. Before you blame the chipmunks, the guy who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower. 

    Sunlight, crowded bulbs, pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance.

  • 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.
