  • To error is human to admit it, not likely

    Using replay in sports to verify a call is a hot subject with many pros and cons including what to do if a mistake is found.  
    The biggest issue in all sports that have replay is the time it takes to view the film and either verify or correct the call.  
    Hockey, believe it or not, has the best system and the fastest.  
    Hockey has an independent person or persons in a film room somewhere in Canada with all games being played on video screens around the room.

  • Cub Scout Pack 60
  • Phase I to begin June 3

    The Harrison County Ag Development Board met last week and decided to open the application process for the Phase I Program on Monday, June 3 at 8 p.m. This means on that evening the applications will be available to pick up at the county wide meeting.
    I realize this is a busy time of year with soybeans being planted, hay harvested, and probably tobacco being set. The reason for the delay was created because of the supplication approval process requiring an extended period of time.
    The following are the times and due dates for the program.

  • Sweet potatoes need 150 days

    I was in Shepherdsville at Country Corner Greenhouse earlier in the week and picked up some good-looking sweet potato slips that are finally ready for the garden.  
    Up until last week it has been too cold for the southern crop.
    Sweet potatoes are tropical by nature but can be grown successfully in Kentuckiana as long as we wait until it is warm (night-time temperatures in the 60’s).  
    As long as they have 150 frost-free days and some steamy Ohio Valley weather, we should be knee deep in sweet potatoes by Thanksgiving.
