  • Cool temperatures and the constant threat of snow may make it feel like spring couldn’t be further away, but planning for spring gardens begins during winter months when seeds are ordered. Looking through a seed catalog, store rack, or online product offering can be overwhelming, since there are so many varieties available for each crop. So, how do we choose from the plethora of options?

  • Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle.  I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.  

  • Roads get people to work, students to school, crops and livestock to market, and operational inputs to the farm. Without an effective infrastructure, commerce in Kentucky grinds to a halt.  I don’t have to tell Kentucky Farm Bureau members how important transportation issues are. Kentucky Farm Bureau has worked hard to maintain the 22.2 percent allocation of the state gasoline tax revenue for rural roads. Supporting the continuation of that allocation and support of rural secondary and county road aid programs is a priority issue for us.

  • The following students from Spencer County Elementary School had perfect attendance for the 2nd 9 week grading period:

    Shelby Alcorn, Luke Armour, Noah Baker, William Barnes, Raymond Barr, Lane Bennett, Loralie Bibelhauser, Addison Binkley, Alyssa Binkley, Roman Bottoms, Bristol Bottoms, Fayle Lynn Bowling, Lincoln Brakefield, Ainsley Brakefield, Jackson Brown.

  •  

    December Students of the Month from Taylorsville Elementary School are, from left to right: Asher Frame, Blaine Sharp, Isabel Vargas, Rebekah McCalley, Sydney Smith, and Logan Turner.

  • Over the holidays, I had to stop at the grocery store on the way home.  As I was getting out of my car, a little boy and his father got out of the car a few spots down.  The little boy began running toward the store and Dad naturally called out, “Slow Down!”

  • Installation ceremony for Rev. Lewis

    On Sunday, January 28 at 4 p.m., an installation ceremony to welcome the new pastor, Rev. John A. Lewis, will be held at Second Baptist Church in Taylorsville, at 4 p.m.

  • The Kentucky Department of Education is still developing standards for Bible literacy courses taught in Kentucky schools which meet the guidelines set last year by the state’s General Assembly as well as meeting constitutional standards.

  • While the winter slowdown has not yet happened, it does seem to be around the corner.  Or is that just wishful thinking?  At any rate winter is a time to regroup and plan for another year for the farm.  

    We always do some serious infrastructure planning to improve our management of pastured chickens and grazing sheep.  The goal is always about allowing for more organized rotational grazing and sorting.  We have gradually built our infrastructure as we also have grown emotionally and intellectually with our farming practices.  

  • We apprehend this is not a perfect world and as humans we constantly make mistakes. However, when it comes to the Bible, there is a major difference. This book might have been transcribed by mere mortals, but its content is not from this world.
