  •  The “Year of the Bible” will apparently last 24 months in Kentucky.

    Gov. Matt Bevin has declared 2017 the “Year of the Bible” in Kentucky even though he proclaimed 2016 the “Year of the Bible” last December.

    Both proclamations pleased Pastor Mark Harrell of Victory Christian Fellowship church in Somerset, who said Wednesday that Bevin’s actions are in support of a statewide Bible reading marathon.

  • Live gifts during the holiday season are welcomed by gardeners…a poinsettia or two, a rosemary topiary, cyclamen, African violets and orchids give us something to fuss over during the winter months.  But, sometimes our homes can be a hostile environment for many of the most popular indoor flowering plants.  

  • Snow and bitter cold sent shivers across the nation in recent days, and experts are urging all dog and cat owners to protect their pets from the freezing temperatures.

     Pets can suffer from frostbite and hypothermia just as humans can, say veterinarians who treat dogs and cats all winter long for winter-related injuries.
     
    “If it feels cold to you, it’s probably cold to your indoor cat or dog,” said Dr. Will Fischbach, a senior clinician in emergency medicine.

  • Amassing a good set of gardening tools usually takes a while and the holiday season, with various traditions of gift giving, is a perfect time to help gardeners achieve that goal.  Good tools don’t come cheap, but if you buy right the first time the investment pays off in the life of the tool and the efficiency of the job.  The right tool often means less time spent on tackling the chore.  

  • The 2017 Kentucky Fruit and Vegetable Conference will have something of interest for all fruit and vegetable producers. The event runs from 8 a.m. EST Jan. 9 until 5 p.m. Jan. 10 at Lexington’s Embassy Suites Hotel.

    Preconference activities on Jan. 8 will include tree fruit, small fruit and vegetable roundtable discussions as well as a plasticulture strawberry short course.

  • It is easy to forget that Christmas was not always what we have experienced all our lives.  The trees and toys, the TV specials and holiday movies, the shopping and Black Friday, it seems like they have been around forever.  The truth is that all of that is fairly new.

  • Christmas services at All Saints Catholic Church

    All Saints Catholic Church will have Mass on Christmas Eve at 4 p.m. and again on Christmas Day at 9 a.m. The church is located at 410 Main Cross in Taylorsville.

  • This is the birth of Christ, as recorded in Luke 2:1-15 (NIV):

    In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone went to their own town to register).
