  • Kelat community should be treated as part of county

    To the editor:

    I was in Kelat the day those men were driving drunk and reckless. If it hadn’t been raining that afternoon, my daughter would have been riding her bike there. Would the deputies have made time to come if she had been hit by these men?

    Nine seconds after I pulled off to head to town - and this is on video - one of the drivers ran a stop sign. If I had left a few seconds later, I would have been hit. The cops were called and nothing was done. Yet in Cynthiana, if a child skateboards on the wrong road, they are immediately in trouble. How fair is that?

  • Small ears may mean poor pollination

    Small stalks, small ears, poor kernel development… does this describe your corn crop this year?

    If it does, there may be several factors at work. Drought at the wrong time can stunt your corn crop (haven’t had that this year); cold damage can stunt corn (if you put your crop out early, you could see a little stunting from a late spring cold snap); and poor drainage and poor soil fertility, especially nitrogen, can stunt the crop as well. 

  • Fall sports ready to begin on Hilltop

  • Practice good management to save berries

    So much for the raspberries this year, not the best crop we’ve seen, in fact each year it seems to get a little messier than the last.

    We typically cut the ‘Royalty’ raspberries all the way to the ground each year and forgo an early crop to manage disease, but it doesn’t seem to be working that well this time around. It has not been a total loss, but about half the canes are dried up and diseased.
