  • As spring has finally arrived, we have several upcoming trainings that may be of interest to you. All of these are part of our annual set of SOS classes. If you are a resident of Spencer County, you should have received a flyer in the mail a couple of weeks ago. If not, you can call our office to get one, or go to our website (address is at the end of this article) and view the class listing and register online.

  • With spring just around the corner, I thought it was time to brush up on some garden nomenclature. I have long been convinced in the value of understanding more about plants than the mere fact that they need sun, soil and water. The more we learn about what it is that plants need and how to determine if they are getting it, the more we will enjoy the act of gardening. What exactly do I mean about “understanding more”? Things like tilth, loam and pH can make or break your azalea garden, and adding sulfur or lime can change the growing environment, for better or worse.

  • Have you ever been out walking or driving in the early morning and really seen the dawn break? I mean, that moment when the sun really first peeks over the horizon in a blaze of glory. The sky has been growing lighter for a while, shot with pinks and golds, but suddenly the morning twilight is banished. The true light has risen into the sky.

    If you are ever driving East at that moment, you know the light just overwhelms everything. I end up clawing for my sunglasses and hope I don’t run into anything in the next five seconds.

  • I have been eating bananas all my life and just the other day, I learned there might be a better way. You know that stem part sticking out of the top? I always saw that as a sort of pull tab, grab that and you can pull back the peel to get at the sweet banana inside.

    When Spencer County Elementary School students aren’t sure how to spell a word, they just ask Charley Miller. The fifth-grader has an exceptional knack for spelling.

    He placed fifth out of 61 competitors March 5 in the Kentucky Derby Festival Spelling Bee. He went on from there to finish 10th in a Scripps National Spelling Bee regional competition last Sunday.

  • Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles said on Friday he supports state legislation to develop a plan for ensuring that Kentucky has a steady, plentiful supply of water for agricultural uses.

  • One in six Kentuckians is food insecure, which means they lack consistent access to enough nutritious food for an active, healthy life. For Kentucky children, it’s even worse – one in four. The people described in these statistics are our relatives, friends, and neighbors – people we see at work, at the ballgame, at church. Many of them have to decide whether to eat, pay the bills, or pay for medication.
