  • Dig and divide iris and daylily bulbs

    Why is it that the perfect time to dig and divide your iris bed is in July at the height of the season’s heat?  
    For bearded iris, it’s because they go through a dormant period in the summer.
    This hardy perennial is a beautiful spring bloomer that is virtually immune to diseases. But to ensure health and vigor, you should divide your bearded iris every three to five years.  
    If they receive adequate sunlight (at least six hours a day), but do not bloom well, then it is definitely time to divide.

  • Murray earns three medals in National Dwarf Association games

    Kentucky athlete Tim Murray can be easily considered one of the most accomplished, successful and least known athletes in Kentucky.
    Which is odd, really. He makes a remarkable first impression. And it has very little to do with that fact that he’s a bit over four feet tall.
    As an athletic trainer and physical therapy assistant at Harrison Memorial Hospital, Murray has contact with people who are often surprised by his appearance — at first.
