  • Agriculture - Champion cattle and hog

     

    Cattle owned by Anne Patton Schubert of Taylorsville won awards June 10 at the 2016 Kentucky Angus Association Preview Show in Louisville.

  • Agriculture - Safe handling of chicks

    The intestinal tracts of all mammals have various types of bacteria as part of their natural intestinal microflora. There are many opportunities for young children to be exposed to these bacteria, such as pets, friends, etc. Our state’s most recent salmonella outbreak is a harsh reminder of this, as many of the victims are children.

  • Agriculture - Nutrients key to a lush garden

    We have spent over 10 years improving our vegetable garden by adding composted horse manure, composted sheep manure and composted chicken manure at the end of each season. The result is a seriously well-drained plot that has the capacity to retain moisture and slowly feed what we plant. I am so looking forward to the vegetable garden this year, because last year was such a disappointment.

  • UK freshman adjusting to college football

    Linebacker Kash Daniel knew playing football at Kentucky and in the Southeastern Conference would be a big adjustment. What the former Paintsville High School star did not know was just how big it would be.

    “It has been challenging mentally every day to prepare yourself to go work and do everything you have to do 100 miles per hour no matter what kind of drill it is. It can be a walk through, a lift session. You better bust your tail or you will be an outcast and people will see that very clearly. Just the pace of the game is so different,” said Daniel.

  • Lessons learned from brussel sprouts

    Ever since I can remember I have hated brussel sprouts. I remember my mom serving them from time to time, and I always had to eat at least one. And one was always about 15 too many for me.

    Anyway, I cannot ever remember voluntarily eating a brussel sprout. As an adult I have never tossed any fresh frozen brussel sprouts in my grocery cart or even tried them at a potluck. I apologize to those of you who love brussel sprouts, but they are just not for me.

  • Three good stream floats for smallmouth bass

    Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.

    Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.
