  • CYNTHIANA – Gov. Steve Beshear Monday joined state officials and community leaders to recognize two bills that support the state’s farm families and food banks. In particular, the budget bill provided funding for the Farms to Food Banks initiative. A second bill designed to support landowner rights in protecting their crops and livestock from nuisance wildlife also has beneficial impacts for food banks.
    Beshear ceremonially signed House Bills 235 and 448 at the Harrison County Extension Office in Cynthiana.

  • All in all we have had a decent summer with reasonable temperatures and adequate rainfall. I think the marker for the summer of 2014 can go to the weeds. So as you address some fall weeding chores you may also want to do a little preening to give some of your annuals and perennials a face-lift for fall.

  • So often we hear that fall or winter is a particularly good time to do certain things in the landscape. This is usually due to the fact that plants have entered into winter dormancy.

  • Every place on Earth has a history and there is much more that we don’t know about than there is in written form.
    Kentuckians get an idea of what the topography was like from the surveys and explorations of men like Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton and others. They had their run-ins with native Americans, but they also gained respect for their fearlessness. Both Boone and Kenton were captives of the Native Americans at separate times, but managed to escape.

  • Labor Day has come and gone. Passing by quicker than a kid can say, “Summer vacation.” But what is Labor Day exactly? And why is it usually spent grilling hamburgers, instead of actually laboring?
    The first Labor Day was celebrated 122 years ago according to the U. S. Department of Labor. The Central Labor Union used the day to demonstrate their united strength by parading on Tuesday. Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City.
    Other cities soon followed the example and chose the first Monday in September to celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday.”

  • FRANKFORT, Ky. – The days are growing shorter and cooler temperatures are starting to show up in extended forecasts.
    The transition to fall is underway.
    For Kentucky hunters, it started weeks ago with the opening of early fall squirrel season. Labor Day ushered in the start of dove season, and the onrush of hunting opportunities continues this weekend.
    Archery deer and wild turkey seasons opened statewide on Saturday, Sept. 6 and run through Jan. 19, 2015.

  • As I have mentioned in previous columns, Romans 12:1 talks about how the renewing of your mind is a continual process. It’s not something that happens all at once. If you continually renew your mind with the Word of God you will be able to overcome obstacles you never thought possible.
    For instance: When fear comes your way, you can give into it or say, “God does not give me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) When anxiety comes your way, you say “I am more than a conqueror!” (Romans 8:37)
