    So far this summer, things have been quite busy in our little corner of the world.
    And, the promise is there to keep us active throughout the summer.
    I’ve said it before and just can’t say it enough ... our Chamber and Main Street directors are keeping it interesting.
    We are two concerts into the Summer Concert Series and I have to say those have been some of my favorite events.
     There are still two to go. On Friday, July 14, George Molton will perform in front of the Justice Center.

  • Powdery mildew in the garden

    Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around. It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads, it likes humid weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started.  
    The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection, spacing, pruning and treatment before it spreads.
    Powdery mildew is caused by several different fungi, I won’t bore you with their names because they all act the same way.

    I always enjoy hearing stories from my parents about the days when they were growing up in Cynthiana and how things were so much simpler and less complicated than they are today.
    They both attended Cynthiana High School and both walked to school every day, as did almost all of their classmates.
    Basketball games were played at City Hall and the Dixie Corner was a favorite hangout for the high school set.
    One of their friends was a few classes older than them. His name was Joe Beasman Hall, better known as “Joe B.”

  • Green beans, Arsenic and graduation

    First garden report: The green onions are thriving and some have found their way into a casserole already.
    Potatoes are happy, radishes will be ready in a jiffy and the green beans look a little bewildered. They are crowded for sure, and what, if anything, turns out from them in this experiment will be interesting at least.

  • Local media serves a purpose for Harrison County

    I admit that I have ink in my blood. It’s an old cliche, but after 41 years, I feel comfortable making that proclamation.
    I can reach back to the 1960s and remember sitcom sets where someone was reading a newspaper.
    Jackie Gleason (Ralph) opened nearly every show with him sitting at the kitchen table, newspaper in hand and coffee nearby. Somewhere in the background Sue Ann Langdon (Alice) was seeing what she could do to annoy her husband.
