  • The answers to life cannot be found in shortcuts

    More years ago than I care to remember, my wife and I were living in California and we took a trip to the Sequoia National Forest and then up to Yosemite.  Both of these are beautiful amazing places that I would recommend highly.  What I would not recommend is the route we took between the two.

  • Local horse owners encouraged to complete survey if received

    Beginning this week, horse owners across Kentucky could be some of 15,000 “horse-holds” selected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Ag Statistics Service to contribute critically important information about Kentucky’s horse industry. Organizers urge those receiving a survey in the mail to promptly complete and return the information.

  • Garlic harvest comes early

    I read somewhere that summer solstice marks the point that it is safe to harvest your garlic. By June 20, the garlic has “cloved-up” in this part of the country, but of course what happens prior to that date may give us a little wiggle room. This year, I harvested on June 19, the earliest in memory and the garlic looks good.

  • PHOTO GALLERY: Summer enrichment at Taylorsville Elementary

    Students across Spencer County in grades K-8 are having fun while learning this summer as participants in the district’s new summer enrichment program. The program was designed to reemphasize and bolster concepts learned during the school year, especially reading and math. Students who would benefit the most from the program were identified at Taylorsville and Spencer County Elementary schools, as well as Spencer Middle. Although participation was not required, the program is being offered free of charge and lunch is provided.
