    * Cynthiana Democrat, July 2, 1981 - “A broken axle on an L & N Railroad car was the apparent cause of a train derailment that occurred about 5:20 a.m. Saturday next to the city parking lot on Bridge Street. Eight railroad cars loaded with coal derailed, blocking three railroad crossings and scattering tons of coal on the Bridge Street parking lot.”

  • Grace Notes

    I have a Facebook friend in Colorado, another Christian writer I’ve met with a number of times over the years at various Christian publishing events.

    For the past few years she’s been writing about her oldest son, Zach, who is a drug addict.

    He’s had periods of being clean, but they haven’t lasted. Last summer he nearly died from a drug overdose -- his third overdose in less than a year -- and spent several days in ICU on a respirator, suffering seizures.

  • Cover crops are multi-purpose

    While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.  

    I started using cover crops about eight years ago and I am sold on the multi-purpose usefulness.  

    While many disease pathogens winter over on plant debris and an equal amount remain viable in the soil, it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean. 

  • It’s an official kind of week

    Last week when Joseph Ammerman and I recorded “You Make the Call” for the Harrison County football pregame on WCYN Joseph came up with an interesting idea.  Since I have no idea how many, if any at all, listen to the show, I am going to repeat the idea with some adjustments.  

    We talked about a week in a high school football official’s life as far as games and preparation for the games.
