  • Crape Myrtles, high summer bloom

    We should use more crape myrtles in Kentuckiana, they are not just for more warm, temperate climates; in fact, there are a great many that go unbothered by an average winter in our parts. 

    There is often a lull in the garden at this time, our early summer blooms are fading and our late summer garden has yet to pop; but the crape myrtle can provide a colorful bridge between the two. This summer blooming shrub is in full glory by the end of July through August, the months of high summer, as I like to call it.

  • Golf teams present different challenges for Coach Crisp

    Harrison County High School golf coach Jason Crisp is in his second year of coaching the boys’ golf team and will be coaching the girls’ team for the first time this season. 

    The teams are as different as night and day. The girls have virtually no varsity experience while the boys return four of their top five from last year. Crisp had tryouts for the boys’ team while there are only four girls so there was no need for a tryout.

  • Football season is officially here

    I always know when football season arrives.  Officially for me and unofficially for others, the season arrives when the first meeting of the CKFOA is held.  The CKFOA is the Central Kentucky Football Officials Association and the first meeting was Monday.

    In order to officiate a sanctioned high school football game in Kentucky, a person has to be registered with the KHSAA and with an association like the CKFOA, which is responsible for training and assigning officials to the games.
