  • Potato planting begins mid-March

    Spring break from teaching at U of L falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day and when I always plant out my seed potato for the year.
    While I always manage a mid-March planting, we must consider the condition of the soil.  Don’t start digging if the soil is too wet. Be patient and only work once the soil is friable.
    Select potato varieties that compliment the way you cook. The most versatile varieties include favorites like Yukon Gold and Red Cloud.

  • Coming full circle with the worst breakups

    When I was 12 I went steady with Paul Minardi.
    He gave me his blue St. Christopher’s medal, which is what boys gave their girlfriends back then, back before St. Christopher was de-sainted.
    I don’t remember how long we went steady, only that he broke up with me and shattered my 12-year-old heart.
    It was the Worst. Breakup. Ever.
    Until the next one, that is.

  • Cynthiana woman killed in Tuesday accident

    Deputies are investigating a single-vehicle fatal accident which occurred Tuesday morning on U.S. 62 East.
    An elderly Cynthiana woman was headed toward Cynthiana when it appears she went off the side of the road and overcorrected, according to Deputy Steve McCauley. The vehicle flipped onto its side and slid head-on into a tree.
    The accident occurred about 9:55 a.m. in front of Eastland Estates on U.S. 62 East. The woman’s name is being withheld pending notification of her family.

  • Family rebounds from Christmas nightmare

    The power of prayer is what one Cynthiana mother said pulled her family together during a nightmare that any mother would dread.
    Clayton Arnold is not the typical 8-year-old boy. He can often be found backing his daddy’s tow truck up to hook to a wrecked or illegally parked vehicle.
    Life was all fun and full of adventure for the Arnold family until Clayton started experiencing headaches and random spells of dizziness.

  • Hello March!

    I’m usually somewhat sluggish about flipping the calendar.
    I don’t know why. Perhaps someone with a bunch of letters after his name would say it has something to do with not wanting to let go.
    However, it was with exuberance that my February pages hit the recycle bin and heralded in the lamb’s version of March.
    I have three calendars in my office; two are flipped and one is a rip-away.
    It was with great fanfare that I tore off February.
    My theory:
    This winter has been interminably long.
