  • I think everybody likes to get something new.  We relish that new car smell.  Many women love new shoes, a lot of men love getting new tools.  Children are always thrilled at new toys.  On the grocery shelves, laundry detergent is always “New and Improved.”  Auto manufacturers are always promoting the newest model, the brand new features, new safety features, and new designs.

  • Look around you as you read this, you will probably see a wall close by.  That wall protects you; it keeps out the wind and the rain.  Walls hold up our roofs and hold in the heat.  Walls help define our homes and our workplaces, walls are all around us.

  • Taylor Stevenson Tolle, a member of Spencer County 4-H, exhibited the Grand Champion Kentucky Steer and the Champion Kentucky Chi Heifer at the Kentucky Farm Bureau Beef Expo Junior Show March 7. She also was selected as the third place winner in the Overall Kentucky Heifer category.

     

  • In 1998, Kentucky experienced a very wet spring due to a strong El Nino weather pattern. Then El Nino conditions in the equatorial Pacific turned to La Nina – the cooling of water in the Pacific Ocean – that led the Bluegrass State into a summer drought. Some weather models are indicating that history may repeat itself in 2010.

  • Susan Arnold, Principal Broker, with Arnold Realty, LLC has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification (SFR).
