  • Countdown of greatest superheroes

    Most of the time I have to think before I am able to write my column for the week.
    However, on Monday morning, which started out as one of the worst in a long time, I simply had an idea slam into my head.
    I love looking on the internet to see top 10’s of different categories.
    Whether it is top 10 movies, athletes, college sports or dumb quotes of all time, I like to research those.

  • Farmers Market to open April 21

    The Harrison County Farmers Market has scheduled the opening date for April 21. In a mailer last week, I had mentioned the date of April 28 as the starting date. This was an incorrect start date and I wanted to correct this for the general public.
    On Saturday, April 21, the group hopes to have some cole crops, onions, lettuce and some plants for sale. We will also have some locally made crafts which will be offered.
    Again, the market will have producers from Harrison, Roberson, Bourbon, Nicholas and Pendleton counties.

  • Cedar rusts and fire blight concerns

    Warmer-than-normal conditions this spring are causing a few concerns for apple growers. The biggest threats right now are cedar rusts and fire blight. Cedar rust galls are developing. As galls swell, they produce spores that threaten apple (and sometimes crabapple and hawthorn). Swelling galls were observed on cedar in Lexington in mid-March. Warmer temperatures in Western Kentucky provided conditions for even earlier gall development.
