  • Watching old movies

    Do you like old movies?  I guess I am old enough now that some movies I saw at the theater are now considered old movies.  It’s hard for me, but “Star Wars” came out the year I graduated high school and I guess for a lot of people that is an old movie.

    Some communities try to better themselves with attractions or festivals. Some place all their hopes in economic development or tourism or some historical claim to fame. All of these things certainly can benefit a community, but at the end of the day, the value of our hometown is dictated by those we call our neighbors.

    I was reminded of that last week as I drove past a couple on Hwy 155 who were spending a cool day picking up other people’s trash.

  • Agriculture - Mild winter means we need to be more tick aware

    A mild winter can have its downsides. One is that more ticks probably survived than normal. The result is more hungry ticks out earlier than usual, according to Lee Townsend, extension entomologist in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

    Typically, warm weather brings ticks out of hiding to find the blood meal they need to continue their life cycle. In the past two weeks, Townsend has received calls about ticks on both people and pets.
