  • Time to predict the Super Bowl winner

    I believe that it is fun to predict what might happen given that no one knows who will be injured, fired or such as that.  I am going to do this for the NFL, broken down by division, until I get to the Super Bowl.  
    NFC East: Toughest division from top to bottom in the NFC.  
    I think the Eagles will win this division because they have the best coach and some great athletes.

  • Shall we brag?

    One of my favorite stories is the one where my friend Mike announced that he had given up pride for Lent.
    He was so proud of his decision, couldn’t wait to start. Just knew he’d nail it.

  • Changes to Form 1099-G and 1099-MISC for FSA producers and vendors

    John W. McCauley, USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director announces that calendar year 2012 brings several changes to the way FSA reports a producer’s farm program payments to the producer and to IRS.
    In past years, IRS Forms 1099-G would be issued to show all program payments received from the Farm Service Agency, regardless of the amount.

  • Livestock producers affected by disasters urged to keep good records

    USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director John W. McCauley urges livestock producers affected by natural disasters such as Hurricane Isaac and the continuing drought to keep thorough records of their livestock and feed losses, including additional expenses for such things as feed purchases because of lost supplies.
    FSA recommends that owners and producers record all pertinent information of natural disaster consequences, including:

  • Drought, heat causes stress

    “Newly transplanted trees must remain hydrated in order for the natural process of root system regeneration to begin” writes Roger Harris, associate professor of horticulture at Virginia Polytechnic Institute.  
    This is something that has been repeated countless times this summer by many in the green industry, yet, I fear, some homeowners may have turned a deaf ear.  
    With record breaking heat and drought conditions for many in Kentuckiana, plants suffer the most if their care-giver is less than committed.
