  • Remember the pyramid...the food one that is

    Sometimes it is difficult to talk about the problems that face our community, especially when kids are involved.
    I was recently at the schools taking pictures for the first day back to school.
    The kids, I must admit, were really cute. As they swarmed off the buses with their Sponge Bob Square Pants and Hello Kitty backpacks and confused-looking faces, something caught my attention very quickly.

  • Me and change just don’t get along

    Every so often my husband gets a certain look in his eye and then says, “Before you say no, hear me out.”
    What comes next almost always involves a stepladder, can of spackle, his drill and a huge mess.
    I remember the time he tore the spare bedroom apart and temporarily stored a bed in the front bathroom. For days I muttered, “There’s a bed in my bathroom!”

  • Sawflies are species specific

    One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly.  
    We planted over a 100 white pine seedlings over 30 years ago and after a decade or so we started to lose a couple each year to one problem or another.
    I was charged with inspection duty. Looking for and plucking bagworms; collecting beetles in jars for identification at the County Extension Service; or closely noting the color, legs and chewing habits of the various caterpillars I encountered.

  • Cynthiana man killed in ATV accident

    A 48-year-old Cynthiana man was killed in a 4-wheeler accident Sunday night.

    The ATV overturned three times, throwing the driver from the vehicle.
