  • Staying safe this summer

    Although summer break is coming to an end, summer weather—and hazards—will continue. However, there are a few things you can do to help keep your family safe, happy, and healthy for the rest of the season, especially while enjoying the great outdoors.

    The 2016 Kentucky 4-H State Communications Day was held on Saturday, July 9, at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

  • Agriculture - Troubleshooting for your tomatoes

    We cannot control the weather, but we can control what our tomatoes eat, so to speak. At planting time, we prepare the soil with composted hen manure and a little organic fertilizer. We also mulch around the plants immediately in order to moderate soil moisture and to prevent the spread of soil-borne diseases.   This year, our work at building healthy soil has paid off because the tomatoes are thriving.  Some folks have not been as lucky  as the rain poured down earlier in the season.

  • Agriculture - UK Grains Center benefits state

And the nearly daily dish of bad news leaves many of us are asking how we arrived at such a place.

  • Barker looking to be a leader

    Give Drew Barker credit for understanding that many University of Kentucky fans really do not yet know him -- and he wants to keep working to change that.

    “I know I have had some setbacks before but I would not label that as who I am as a person. I am definitely nice and polite. Sometimes people get the wrong picture of someone and you can’t tell that is really not right if you don’t know them,” said the Kentucky sophomore quarterback.

  • Outdoors - Hunters gearing up for dove, duck seasons

    The September Canada goose season historically ran during the first two weeks of September, but will open Sept. 16 and close Sept. 30 in 2016.
