  • Kentucky’s soybean farmers are busy in the fields this time of year, but that certainly doesn’t keep them from keeping a watchful eye on what’s going on with international trade.

  • A number of weeks ago, I injured my left knee.
    It had been months since I had gone to the Y to exercise and I had finally  decided it was time to go back.
    I bought new exercise clothes and talked to the wellness director for even  more motivation.
    I was psyched.
    On a Wednesday afternoon I got to the Y 45 minutes before the Strong by Zumba class started so I could walk on the treadmill first.

  • I stand amazed watching birds fly. Why do the buzzards lift their wings at about a 15-degree angle from their body as they soar, while a hawk keeps his wings flat, parallel with the surface of the ground?
    I notice the hummingbird flapping its wings faster than I can even keep clear while the great blue heron seems to lift and thrust her wings in slow motion.

  • Bees are the life-blood of any successful orchard, garden and landscape where pollination is necessary for fruit.  
    In recent years, bees have found themselves in a pickle with the over-use of pesticides and a parasitic mite that have contributed to a decrease in their numbers.  
    The thing about bees is that the aggressive behavior of a few species has given them all a bad rap.

  • * The Cynthiana Democrat, Aug. 11, 1921 -- “Train Time at Cynthiana. The daily freight trains passing this point daily numbers 24 and passenger trains 18. On some days even more, extras being run. Running straight through the center of town, with five dangerous crossings, the trains with their noise and smoke are a great nuisance, making one wonder how anybody at any time thought it an advantage to have a railroad splitting a town in two.”
