  • Playoff determines Cynthiana Country Club Bank Trust Tournament winner

    The Cynthiana Country Club Member/Member Tournament sponsored by Bank Trust went to a playoff before the team of Jim Fuller and Gary Philpott were able to grab the championship.  
    In an unusual development, Philpott was unable to return for the playoff and Fuller took on the duo of Gary Varner and Bob Whitaker for the title.  
    All involved shot par on the first hole before Fuller birdied the second to win the match.

  • Stay in your car

    Personal responsibility and the need for it was never more apparent than a few weeks ago in Canandaigua, New York, when NASCAR star driver Tony Stewart hit and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race on a dirt track.  
    What led up to the accident and the accident itself has been widely talked about. There has been wild speculation sometimes out weighing the facts from the tragic accident.  
    What is almost certain is that Stewart’s car hit the back of Ward’s sending it into the barrier knocking the youthful driver out of the race.

    Fillies end 16 strokes better than Bourbon County
    The Harrison County Fillies only had three players available for Monday’s match with the Bourbon County Lady Colonels, but that was enough. The girls rolled to a 160-to-176 win at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    Sarah Holland led the way with a nine-hole total of 46 with Sarah Durbin following with 52 and Morgan Nelly with 62. The rain-soaked course did not allow for much roll on drives, which elevated the scores on the drizzling afternoon.

  • Purslane turns out to be a tasty weed

    I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups but never made much of an effort to harvest it until a few years ago.  
    So, when high summer approaches I am now on the hunt for purslane, considered a noxious weed by most.  
    I am not the only one who regards purslane with some culinary virtue. A fellow Farm Market farmer at the Belknap Farmers’ Market gave me a taste of his homemade salsa commenting “It is the best way to use purslane.” I was so excited to hear someone else get excited about this so-called weed.
