  • Alfalfa weevil is key pest of the first alfalfa cutting

    Alfalfa weevil is a key insect pest on the first alfalfa cutting. Tip feeding should show up soon in established fields.

    This insect occurs throughout the state, but sound management practices, weather patterns, and natural enemies often keep numbers below damaging levels in many fields.

    Great natural mortality of alfalfa weevil can occur early in the weevil season. Strong winds and driving rain can knock small larvae to the ground where they perish. In addition, alfalfa can tolerate light feeding by the insect with no appreciable loss of yield or quality.

  • Lessons from Little League

    There can’t be too many days better than Opening Day.

    And when you add the words Little League to that title it’s even better.

    As I snapped pictures and chatted with a few of the people attending Saturday’s ceremony, I could not help but think back to the day when my own Little League coach came to me and said, “Get a catcher’s mitt. We want to try you back there.”

  • Bat Cats drop two at Madison Central

    Anderson County dropped a pair of games in a three-team triangle event at Madison Central High School on Saturday. The Bearcats dropped a contest to the host school in the opener, then fell to Conner in the second game. Madison Central went on to defeat Conner to complete the day.

    Madison Central, now 13-2 on the year, got five runs in the first inning and that was all the Indians needed to defeat the Bearcats, 7-3, in the event’s opening game. It was also Madison Central’s first home game of the season.

  • Moore fires no-hitter against Top 20 team

    If Ally Moore pitches like this when she is not feeling well, what will she do when she is full strength?

    Moore, an Anderson County junior, totally silenced the Louisville Holy Cross bats, firing a no-hitter as the Lady Bearcats prevailed, 2-1, in the final game of the Lafayette Invitational, held Saturday in Lexington.

    Moore held the Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the state in the Kentucky Softball Coaches Association poll, hitless while striking out seven and walking one.

  • Sims jumps over Creek field

    Anderson County High School sophomore Alorra Sims backed up her reputation as one of Kentucky’s best jumpers when she took first place in the long jump at the Tates Creek Commodore Classic Saturday in Lexington.

    Sims soared 16-feet-11-inches, tying a school record in the event. Sims, who finished third in the state in the event last year, is considered a serious contender for the state championship. Sims also placed sixth in the 100-meter hurdles and third in the 300-meter hurdles. It was the best showing of any Anderson harrier on Saturday.

    Many of us who remember the March 1997 floods in Kentucky recently had uncomfortable pangs of foreboding as storm systems dropped heavy amounts of rain freight-trained across the state.

    It looked like another 1997 for a day or so. Small, normally docile neighborhood creeks suddenly filled basements, eroded roadways and carried away belongings.
