Today's Features

  • It is the time of year when 4-H’ers across Kentucky prepare their speeches and demonstrations for upcoming local communications contests. These programs offer so much more to youth than just ribbons. They give young people the opportunity to develop important life skills and receive a sense of accomplishment in a job well done.

  • I have my orders placed for onion sets and seed potatoes along with some of my favorite summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm. I can barely stand the wait! I have just seeded out several trays of early season vegetables that like a cool start to the season.  Kale, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are just beginning to push through the light potting mix.

  • Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers.  There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can.  On a warm March evening, especially after a shower, spring peepers remind me of how glorious rural life can be.  Just by listening, a whole other world can be imagined.

  • Kentucky 4-H is one of the most important and influential youth programs in our state and our county. Across Kentucky over 279,000 youth ages 9 to 19 learn about leadership, citizenship and life skills in “learn-by-doing” experiences such as communications and public speaking, through agriculture projects like livestock judging, science projects with robotics, 4-H camp, Teen Conference, and many other 4-H programs and activities.

  • Mt. Zion Baptist at Camp Branch celebratespastor’s 1st anniversary

    Mt. Zion Baptist Church at Campbranch will celebrate the 1st anniversary of Pastor W.C. Mitchell on Sunday, March 12 at 3 p.m. The Rev. Joseph Humphrey Jr., from New Covenant Church in Shelbyville, will be visiting. The church offers Sunday School at 9:45 a.m. with worship service at 11 a.m. The church is located at 4056 Bloomfield Road in Taylorsville.

  • Tall fescue, specifically Kentucky 31, is a cool-season grass that is widely grown throughout Kentucky and the eastern United States, because it is resistant to many unfavorable conditions including drought tolerance and insect resistance. However, the very reason for its resiliency is also its Achilles heel. It contains a harmful fungal endophyte that causes fescue toxicosis in cattle and horses. Affected animals get sick, have reduced weight gains, reproductive problems and other issues.

  • A healthy fruit crop from your favorite fruit tree can dramatically increase with some late winter attention.  Pruning is key to healthy fruit trees and fruit production.  You can prune any time after the threat of harsh winter weather is over until just before the tree is in full bloom.  Prune out any winter damage, branches that grow inward and crowded limbs.

  • Ok, first things first, I am a Baptist Preacher and I agree with Baptist doctrine.  I just wanted to be sure to get that out of the way before I go on to say that I am a Christian before I am a Baptist.  You see the eternal question is not, “Are you a Baptist?” It is more fundamental; “Have you placed your full faith and trust in Jesus?”

  • Cub Scouts to offer Pancake Supper
