  • Who Will You Be This Year?

    Have you ever played cowboys and Indians, or pretended to be the game winning athlete? Imagination is a key to a happy childhood.  
    Adults play games like that as well. We relive our lives through our children – wanting for them what we wished for ourselves, e.g. dads at the ball field, moms at the bridal shop. A dangerous game we adults play is “What if I only had…?” We try to relive our lives.

    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:

  • KCTCS joins national emergency and disaster group

    When a crisis strikes on campus, it could require a response many colleges and universities might not be equipped to handle alone. This is not limited to small schools.

Now, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System has joined this impressive group. As of last summer, 26 institutions of higher ed had signed on to help each other during a crisis.

  • Specialty seed catalogs deliver quality

    I have learned to be discerning when it comes to catalog shopping.  
    I steer clear of outrageous or cheap deals. I prefer the specialty catalog where expertise reigns, providing us with both a good product and the information to grow it well.  
    I shop locally as much as I can but for some crops we must turn to the catalogs that are filling the mailbox this time of the year.
