  • Favorite fall perennials

    There are some perennials that I can’t live without because of their fabulous late-summer and fall performance.  
    Plant them in your garden now because you will overlook them at garden centers come spring.
    My mixed perennial beds look the best this time of the year (barring any unpleasant summer drought; and please ignore the weeds!)  The black-eyed Susan’s, Russian sage and various species of Aster, Salvia and Nepeta are prolific but they are only mediocre anchor plants compared to some of the other species that come on this time of the year.

    The Cynthiana City Commission is ready to move ahead with litigation that would foreclose on a Main Street lot. The property, owned by Billy Asbury, burned several years ago and was left as a vacant shell for many years.
    The city razed the building and now holds a lien for the cost of the demolition plus taxes. The lien is over $26,000.
    City attorney John Lair told the commission that the property would be sold at public auction at the courthouse.
