  • I just got a call from a reader in Taylorsville who was seeking an ID on a pest that was stinging her in the blackberry patch. She described the offender in very human terms – it looked like it was wearing glasses, had a green jacket on, little ears, etc. I could see the saddleback stinging caterpillar in my mind’s eye as she continued.

  • John W. McCauley, FSA State Executive Director, reminds Kentucky farmers that the Farm Service Agency (FSA) is modifying its Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) policies to help those affected by sustained drought conditions. Throughout this year of extreme weather, USDA has supported and delivered assistance to farmers, ranchers, and rural communities across the country.

    The Jacksons have been married for 22 years and have two daughters. Sarah is a junior at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green and Macie is a sophomore at Fern Creek High School in Louisville.

  • The richest man in the world (at one time) owned oil wells, refineries, tankers and pipelines, also hotels, a life insurance company, a finance company and aircraft companies.
    He surrounded his 700-acre estate with bodyguards, vicious dogs, steel bars, searchlights, bells and sirens. In addition of being afraid of planes, ships and crackpots, he feared disease, old age, helplessness and death. He was lonely and gloomy and admitted that money could not buy happiness.

  • If you have family pictures, but have never taken the time to identify them for future generations, you are doing the people in the photos, as well as their kin, a terrible injustice. Pictures without identifications are many times lost forever, erasing solid evidence that a family ever existed.

    Here’s a suggestion that will pay dividends to your children, grandchildren and generations to come.

  • Chili does not really sound like a summer dish, unless it’s one of those nights when you just want to pretend it is winter and crank the air conditioning. This summer, though, I found a chili that I consider to be perfect for summer, in part because it can be made with fresh ingredients.
