  • The intestinal tracts of all mammals have various types of bacteria as part of their natural intestinal microflora. There are many opportunities for young children to be exposed to these bacteria, such as pets, friends, etc. Our state’s most recent salmonella outbreak is a harsh reminder of this, as many of the victims are children.

  • We have spent over 10 years improving our vegetable garden by adding composted horse manure, composted sheep manure and composted chicken manure at the end of each season. The result is a seriously well-drained plot that has the capacity to retain moisture and slowly feed what we plant. I am so looking forward to the vegetable garden this year, because last year was such a disappointment.

  • Ever since I can remember I have hated brussel sprouts. I remember my mom serving them from time to time, and I always had to eat at least one. And one was always about 15 too many for me.

    Anyway, I cannot ever remember voluntarily eating a brussel sprout. As an adult I have never tossed any fresh frozen brussel sprouts in my grocery cart or even tried them at a potluck. I apologize to those of you who love brussel sprouts, but they are just not for me.

    Do you ever really look forward to something only to have it disappoint you? For instance, I love going to the movies, but sometimes the movie doesn’t match my expectations.

  • Gov. Matt Bevin, along with Kentucky commissioner of agriculture Ryan Quarles, proclaimed May as Beef Month in Kentucky, citing beef’s nutritional benefits and its impact on Kentucky’s economy. They were joined by Kentucky Beef Council chairman Steve Dunning, Beef Council president David Lemaster, Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association executive vice president Dave Maples, Kentucky Beef Council director of consumer affairs Kiah Twisselman, and the Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy executive director Warren Beeler.

  • Usually we associate hard work with sweat on the brow and perhaps aching muscles, and there is certainly a lot of that to be done.  There are houses to be built, crops to be planted and harvested, there are roads to be repaired, cars to be built - you know what I mean.

    There are other people that work hard every day who never break a sweat. They work in offices or in stores; they sell insurance or help us buy houses. Some of these folks work long hours in front of a computer screen or talking on the phone or, well, maybe even teaching in our local schools.
