  • Have you seen the new TV show “Undercover Boss?”  It’s pretty simple; the CEO of a big company goes “undercover” in his company to see what is really happening. It is really a great illustration of a very Biblical principle.

  • Three local musicians – Jamie Lawson, Alex Shelley and Sam McClain – will be participating in Helping Hand for Haiti, a benefit at the Saints-Sky Bar in Louisville.

  • The float-bed system is a convenient and efficient way to produce tobacco transplants.  One drawback to this method is the potential for significant disease development. Large numbers of plants packed into a small, water-filled area create conditions in which many diseases thrive. 

  • Have you ever noticed elevator etiquette?  When you get on you just punch your button and stand mutely staring at the door.  If there are two of you, you stand as far away from each other as possible.  When there are three or four people, we go to our own corner and stand there in silence.  Generally not a word is spoken except for “excuse me” or maybe a floor number.

  • This morning I finished reading through the Bible and near the end God warned us not to add to or take away from the Word of God. This means exactly what the Word of God says.

    In the last few weeks we have heard a lot about the gays in the Armed forces. It was not long ago I had a discussion with a woman and she believed it was alright to be gay, that it was governed by your orientation.

  • If you tuned in to watch the Super Bowl this past Sunday night, then you were among nearly 40% of all other U.S. households watching the big game. Super Bowl Sunday holds the record of being TV’s most-watched game day of the year; some 80-90 million Americans are watching their televisions at any given time during the game. With ratings like these, there is no wonder why some advertisers are willing to pay as much as $3 million for a 30-second commercial.

  • Warren Thompson and Clayton Geralds are passionate about alfalfa, and the Kentucky Alfalfa Conference has held a special place on their calendars for the majority of its 30 years of existence.

    As a retired industry professional and forage extension specialist for the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Thompson worked to increase the state’s alfalfa acreage and yields. He has since attended nearly every conference, speaking on many occasions about the benefits of the crop.
