  • COLUMN: Can Governor’s Cup transcend the Kentucky grumps?

    After a weekend of looking back, lamenting 9/11 tragedies, tributes and tears, time to look forward again.  
    In Kentucky this week, Governor’s Cup football. Annual Hatfields and McCoys bash for bragging rights and home front supremacy.

  • COLUMN: Grubs not always the culprit for brown patches in the lawn

    Whenever brown patches or dead spots appear in the lawn, we are quick to suspect a grub infestation. This is not always the case, though.
