  • Quadris receives special local need label for greenhouse grown tobacco

    For the past few weeks we have continued to see an escalation of disease identified as Target Spot in our float plant systems. In the past we have had little or no control of this and have encouraged producers to get the plants into the fields. Later in the season we see this disease show up in our crops and continually lose weight and production. Dr. Kenny Seebold, Plant Pathologist at the University of Kentucky, has worked to get an emergency label or Quadris in the greenhouse and on the float system. The following is an article that Seebold sent to the agents last Friday.

    “You can paint on the basement floor,” my mother told me.

    I was eight years old or younger... and stunned.

    Mom was going to let me paint on the floor? I was going to be able to use the gray concrete as my huge blank canvas?

    “On the floor?” I asked, just to make sure my ears weren’t deceiving me.

    “Yes... on the floor,” Mom repeated again, probably in between loads of laundry or meal preparations.

    And so I, gathered up all my paints and brushes and went to the basement where I painted on the floor.

  • Fillies third, Breds sixth in regional track

    The Harrison County Fillies track team had its best regional track meet showing in years last Saturday, finishing third overall in the team standings. The HCHS Thorobreds didn’t fare quite as well and finished sixth, with nine schools competing in both meets.

    Harrison County is competing in Class AA for the first time this year, and the drop from AAA apparently helped both teams, in regards to  the numbers of athletes who qualified for this coming weekend’s state meet in Louisville.
