  • Unless you are cultivating cranberries or rice, all this rain is likely thwarting your spring gardening plans; it sure is for many farmers in our area, which is my primary concern. While perspective is important in these matters, many homeowners may see a little stress in their landscapes as a result of over a week of soaking rain.

  • With all of the rain that we’ve had over the past few weeks here in Spencer County, insects may have found their way into people’s waterlogged backyards, homes and landscapes.
    “There are insects and their relatives that thrive under most any set of conditions; this spring belongs to the ‘water bugs,’” said Lee Townsend, extension entomologist in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.

  • Osama is dead, and I just can’t get my mind around it. I am happy and thankful that he has met justice, but I am disturbed as well. When justice triumphs, it is always good news and I am thankful to our military and to our president for seeing justice done. I have watched the celebrations, I have heard the stories, but I am still struggling.

  • In this article I want us to see where we think we are as a nation. “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. Arise, 0 Lord, let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, 0 Lord, that the nations may know themselves to be but men.” Psalm 9:17-20
