  • Do you like old movies?  I guess I am old enough now that some movies I saw at the theater are now considered old movies.  It’s hard for me, but “Star Wars” came out the year I graduated high school and I guess for a lot of people that is an old movie.

  • A mild winter can have its downsides. One is that more ticks probably survived than normal. The result is more hungry ticks out earlier than usual, according to Lee Townsend, extension entomologist in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

    Typically, warm weather brings ticks out of hiding to find the blood meal they need to continue their life cycle. In the past two weeks, Townsend has received calls about ticks on both people and pets.

    The Spencer County Board of Education recognized five teachers from the district as Teachers of the Year for their respective schools.

  • Unusually warm temperatures have both backyard gardeners and farmers looking at crops early this year.

  • Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.

    KY 4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 13. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence and responsibility while having a lot of fun and making new friends.

  • I was catching up on some magazine reading the other day and on two occasions I read the phrase “choose thin spears” and I got so frustrated.  These spring articles were about asparagus, and I would like to go on the record that when it comes to homegrown asparagus (and even the wild growing in the fence rows), fat is good.  The fat spears have always been tender from the garden, so don’t let anyone fool you on the fresh from the garden variety. They are particularly well-suited for the charcoal grill.

  • My wife, Lynn, and I were looking forward to accompanying Congressman Guthrie on his visit with the 5th grade class at Spencer County Elementary School last Thursday. Congressman Guthrie would be speaking with the class about the origins of our government, the separation of powers and then a question and answer session. But first, two pupils conducted a tour of the school for the Congressman and they did a first class job.
