  • CRP participants may request authorization to conduct emergency haying or grazing of CRP acres

  • COLUMN: Preserving the garden

    I am getting ready to head back to U of L where I teach two courses, so I really need to get organized. The garden is still producing and time needs to be spent on turning some of the bounty into things that can be enjoyed during the winter months. I have had the dehydrator going every day this last week drying apples, peaches and berries, cherry tomatoes and potatoes. Plus, predictions of rising food costs (ironically, current reports indicate that grain and sugar prices are affecting prices now, and I don’t eat much of that.)

  • COLUMN: Tips for helping your lawn recover from summer heat

    Although we have had some rains here in Spencer County that other parts of the state haven’t had, our lawns are showing some of the effects of the hot, dry weather over the last couple of months.  If your lawn looks bad and needs some renovation, we are coming into the best time of the year to do some seeding.

  • COLUMN: Jesus, a name above all names

    As we look at Paul when he wrote the Philippians, first let’s take a look at the condition he was in.
    Philippians 1:23-24 says, “For I am in a strait betwixt two having a desire to depart and to be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.”
    As we look at Paul even though he was a prisoner, he still held up the name of Jesus and wanted to see the Philippians do the same. In his writing to them, he always upheld the name of Jesus.

  • COLUMN: Sticker shock: Take care of those finances in a godly manner

    Today I was at the store and I noticed that a half-gallon of milk cost about $2.20, while a gallon cost about $2.90. Does that strike anyone as a little strange? Only 70 cents for that second half-gallon?
    But then again a couple of days ago I was buying some canned dog food. Now it is certainly easier to buy a shrink wrapped package of 6 or twelve cans, but then I looked at the price. For the same dog food, the individual cans were considerably LESS expensive per can. Does something seem wrong with that?

  • COLUMN: Olympians come from families like ours

    As Sunday night came to a close, my heart grew a little sad. The 2012 Olympics were over, and now we have to wait another four years to witness the type of greatness we got to see daily for two weeks.
    These athletes, from all over the globe, are truly world-class, some might even say they’re heroic, but I contend that what makes them so great — well, most of them — is that they’re human.

  • COLUMN: Think before you throw away

    Every five years the State Division of Waste Management requires each county to prepare a projected five-year plan based on how the last five-year plan worked.
    I am sure we are all aware of the different problems people faced over the past half of a decade. Jobs lost, plants closed, cut-backs at most levels of our environment.

  • 4-H program brings Japanese exchange student to Taylorsville

    It’s safe to say that the Hanik family was just as excited to learn from Ayu Hosimi as Ayu was to learn about America and the culture in Kentucky.
