  • Who among us is guilty of not noticing it until it’s too late? Yes, all of a sudden there is nothing left of your blue spruce or arborvitae. Bagworms have been munching on the needles for weeks and we wonder how it all happened.
    Well, they are at work right now, so go outside and take inventory of your evergreens because that’s what the bagworm likes the most. Now is the time they do their damage unless we put a stop to it.

  • On Father’s Day, I preached on Ephesians 5 and 6. As we look at these scriptures in Ephesians, if we had stayed with God’s law instead of man’s law, I wonder how much the divorce rate would be cut today?

  • Enthusiasm is a powerful and infectious thing.  Just watch a basketball game with a real fan and see if you don’t get excited.  Watch a kid jumping on a bed for all she is worth, laughing and smiling the whole time. How can you avoid a smile even if you are worried that the bed might collapse?

  • Bruce George Schueman, a junior from Mount Eden, was named to Campbellsville University’s president’s list for the spring 2011 semester, Dr. Frank Cheatham, vice president for academic affairs, announced in a news release.

  • Three Taylorsville residents earned academic recognition during the spring 2011 semester at Western Kentucky University.
    Kathryn E. Minyard was named to the dean’s list.
    Allison J. Beeson and Joel R. Fickel were named to the president’s list.

    To be eligible for either list, students must have at least 12 hours of coursework that semester.

  • I can hardly wait for this year’s first harvest of summer squash.  Last year was a bust because of the heat; so, I have high hopes for a bumper squash crop this year. Mostly, gardeners complain about losing their plants to the squash vine borer; but, I have managed to offset that pest pressure by delaying planting in order to miss peak egg-laying time.  I have also used row covers, lifting them in the morning so bees can do their pollinating, then covering them during the day when mama wasp of the vine borer does her work.
