  • * Cynthiana Democrat, April 12, 1951 - “The Harrison Hi Thoroughbreds copped their opening diamond encounter when they racked up an 8-2 victory over the Bourbon County Vocational Hi Tuesday at Paris. Billy Switzer was the winning moundsman, allowing only one safety and no earned runs. His slants were stopped by Eddie Whitson. Whitson and Harold Feeback were credited with two hits each and Gasser accounted for a triple. For the losers, Dailey and Pridemore were on the mound.

  • There is a strange emotional thing that happens to gardeners as the summer comes to a close. Our gardens look a bit ragged and are beginning to go dormant. By now my enthusiasm for gardening is replaced by my ambitions for what I want my garden to look like next year. It’s perfect timing, really, because fall in Kentuckiana is the best time to plant. No more droughts or 90 degree days.

  • I’ve followed the All-America Selections for as long as I can remember. It was always a designation that my father trusted and we often trialed the plants in our own family garden the year prior to their introduction. Some of the more memorable plants include ‘Purple Wave’ petunia, ‘Magestic Giants’ pansy mix, and the ‘Profusion’ zinnias. Sure, there were memorable vegetables in the past but it seems as though the AAS is responding to the increase in vegetable gardening interest by including more vegetables then ever each year.

  • Our current weather conditions demand that we rethink some of our fall chores.  Fall lawn and tree fertilization should come later this year then normal because of the drought conditions.  An application of high nitrogen now would only burn up what little green grass you may have and force trees to work more then they should under stressful conditions.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, Oct. 1960 - “Who will buy Monticello and why? These are the questions in the minds of many Cynthianians two days before the palatial residence comes under the auctioneer’s hammer Saturday. The sprawling three-story, 27 room Victorian mansion will be sold by Cummins, Renaker, Whalen and Smith realty and auction firm at 10 a.m. on the premises. Monticello, built in 1883, is a Cynthiana landmark and was once a ‘showplace of the Commonwealth’ by the late Dr. Henry Bromley, who with Mrs. Bromley, held it until their deaths.

    Raffle tickets for beef

  • As I paddled my rickety rowboat — I was on a rushing river somewhere — a couple of humungous alligators came up underneath, flipped me over and started biting my feet.

    I’ve always hated that about alligators.

    It was 2:14 a.m. and thankfully only a dream. I tried going back to sleep, but the alligators were waiting to finish me off so I turned on the TV and listened to four yippy dogs disguised as political commentators discuss the current crisis of the day.

  • It occurred to me the other day that I have not seen as many intricate spider webs this fall at the farm. I like my spiders, as long as they are not lurking on my shoulder or in my bed. I enjoy seeing them in the garden or in the corner of a window where we can watch their work from indoors.  Maybe I am not looking closely enough; perhaps the weather has made them act differently this year?

  • Americans represent less than five percent of the world’s population. Yet we consume nearly one-third of all natural resources used each year . . . and produce a similar percentage of the world’s solid waste. In fact, it would require four Earths for everybody on the planet to live the lifestyle of North Americans.

    Join us at the Harrison County Cooperative Extension Office, 668 New Lair Rd. on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. to learn ways to “green up” your lifestyle. For more information call 234-5510.
