Aug. 7 -- At 6:35 p.m. a non-injury accident occurred on U.S. 27 4.3 miles north of Cynthiana. Richard C. Swearingen was driving north on 27 when he tried to pass another vehicle, lost control of his truck, skid across both lanes of traffic and left the roadway and struck a fence. Swearingen then allegedly left the scene, and was pulled over and arrested on several charges.
Ample rainfall and the current mild temperatures means we can get some fall planting done sooner than later.
Sure, we plant trees all year round as long as we can get the shovel in the ground, but normally planting this time results in a little stress due to high heat and lots of water hauling.
You know me better than to recommend trees that everybody already has in every neighborhood across our hometowns. How about some new trees in the landscape that bloom in summer.
