  • The wonder of it all

    I have always been fascinated by the night sky. The stars, the moon, it all seems so amazing.  That fascination seems to have been born in me from an early age. Early on, I learned about the canals on Mars, about Saturn’s rings, about comets and asteroids and more. Even now I can name the moons of Mars, Deimos and Phobos.  I remember searching out the big dipper and Orion’s belt just to see them

  • Mulch now for strawberries later

    If you want strawberries from your garden next season you should do a little mulching now in order to protect the buds that have already been set.  These buds were set back in August, in fact.   The weather was decent at the time so it should be a good year for the berries; as long as they make it through the winter unscathed.

  • Accused deserve due process

    In the wake of allegations against Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore, I offer the following reminder that we in America have a moral and legal obligation of due process.

    Sexual abuse and assault are serious offenses and over the past several weeks, we’ve been bombarded with allegations, admissions and apologies from Hollywood over the abuse of women.

    It’s good that victims are willing to come forward to and that they are being listened to.

  • Frankfort must stay the course despite scandal

    An initial statement by House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell last Friday that then-Speaker Jeff Hoover “has the full support” of the Republican caucus following claims of a sexual harassment settlement were as wrong as a preliminary police report that Sen. Rand Paul suffered only “minor injuries” when physically assaulted by a neighbor at his home in a gated community in Bowling Green.

    It didn’t take long for the truth about the attack on Paul to come out; he suffered bruised lungs and several broken ribs – hardly “minor.”
