  • Farmers’ Market educational meeting set

    The Harrison County Farmers’ Market committee will offer an educational meeting discussing early spring crops including cole crop production.  The meeting will take place Thursday, Jan. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office.
    Producers usually question the time of plant and what the expected maturity date would be. This meeting will discuss these matters and will also include seed and plant selection for your garden.

  • Winter perennials have summer-like foliage

    Most people would say that there is not much going on in the garden during the winter months. I beg to differ. There are dozens of plants out there doing something interesting.  Some are just showing their pretty bark or their sculptural quality bare of leaves. Others are just beginning to emerge and will be blooming soon.  And others just have some crazy quality that allows their foliage to look as fresh and clean as a spring garden despite the fact it is winter in Kentuckiana.

  • Don't be too quick to say "no"

    “I don’t think so, but maybe next time.”
    “I really don’t think I will be able to make it.”
    The list goes on and on of phrases that we have all used when trying to get out of doing something or going somewhere.
    When we are young we tend to defer to more drastic measures such as dragging our feet, kicking, screaming and in some situations... biting.
    Nonetheless, children and adults both have their ways of trying to drop the hint of non-compliance.

  • If the lights go out

    If you lose electrical service during the winter, follow these tips:
    • Call your utility company first to report the power outage and determine area repair schedules. Turn off or unplug lights, appliances, and furnace to prevent a circuit overload when service is restored. Leave one light on to indicate power has been restored.
    • To help prevent freezing pipes, turn the water off to your home or turn on faucets slightly. Running water will not freeze as quickly.
    • Protect yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning:

  • Save money with these energy efficiency tips

    (ARA) - Saving money is on everyone’s mind this winter season. Between the holiday expenses, colder temperatures and tight budgets, finding ways to reduce costs can be a bit of a challenge. If you’re looking for ways to save, look at your home, and see if you can improve on your energy efficiency - thereby keeping a few extra dollars in your pocket.

  • What is your sign from God?

    For the most part I’m not a fan of the “Messages from God” billboards (“What part of ‘Thou Shalt Not’ didn’t you understand?” “Keep using my name in vain and I’ll make rush hour longer,” “You think it’s hot here?”).
    Launched a few years ago by a Fort Lauderdale advertising agency, there are 17 messages in all, each one signed simply “God.”
    I do, however, like the one that says, “Well, you did ask for a sign.”
    That always makes me laugh.
