  • 2012 corn crop has no grain

    By Gary Carter, Co. ext. agent
    Many of the fields in Harrison County and also other counties in Central Kentucky look good. The one exception is the corn has no grain.
    Many of the fields grew normally early in the season.  When the extreme dry and hot weather occurred corn was attempting to develop and ear and receive pollen. With the extreme weather, little or no grain fill formed and we now have corn stalks with limited grain.

  • Soccer Breds begin season with 6-1 win over Frankfort

    The Thorobred Classic began Tuesday evening with two matches that did not turn out to be very close.

    The host Thorobreds (1-0) then scored three goals in the first 15 minutes against the Frankfort Panthers (0-1) and went on to a 6-1 win.  
    Senior fullback Ben Anness took all of 58 seconds to score the first goal of the season for the Thorobreds on a corner kick.  

  • Preserving your garden

    I am getting ready to head back to U of L where I teach two courses so I really need to get organized.
    The garden is still producing and time needs to be spent on turning some of the bounty into things that can be enjoyed during the winter months.  
    I have had the dehydrator going everyday this last week drying apples, peaches and berries, cherry tomatoes and potatoes.  
    Plus, predictions of rising food costs (ironically current reports indicate that grain and sugar prices are affecting prices now and I don’t eat much of that).

  • Attacking anxiety

    By: Nancy Kennedy
    I suffer from a chronic disease and recently had a flare up, albeit a mild one.
    I’m a hypochondriac, and in my case the disease manifests itself as anxiety. It started shortly after my husband had open-heart surgery six years ago this month. An elephant came and sat on my chest and refused to budge, and then strange, random twinges started twinge-ing and I could feel my heart beating, which is normally a good thing, except when I paid close attention to it, it would beat faster, which scared me, which made it beat even faster.

  • Fillies battle Lady Bearcats to tie in season opener

    On Monday night, the Harrison County Fillies opened the 2012 soccer season by hosting the Anderson County Lady Bearcats. The Lady Bearcats featured a veteran line up of tall and talented players.  
    The Fillies had several scoring opportunities in the first half but could not push one across while Anderson County played a physical style which led to much contact.  
    Harrison County took advantage of their speed advantage to have the opportunities that they had but just couldn’t get one into the goal.
