    An extended stretch of stable weather and seasonably warm temperatures in late April created optimal spring fishing conditions for anglers across Kentucky.

    The calm broke at the end of the month when rounds of storms over a period of days preceded a cold front. In their wake, rivers and streams that had been running low and clear and warmer than normal rose and cooled off a bit.

  • Voter turnout low in county
  • Stumbo’s mad and I’m glad

    Column as I see ’em …

    House Speaker Greg Stumbo and his cohorts on both sides of the aisle got caught being sneaky and they don’t like it.

    But I sure do.

    Stumbo is fussing and threatening legal action against Gov. Bevin’s recent line-item budget vetoes, apparently because at least one sheds a bit too much light on government — and we all know how, like cockroaches, sneaks hate being exposed to the light.

  • How to manage home garden pests

    It is a good time to think about pest control for your home vegetable garden.

  • Take gardening inspiration from arboretums, garden shows

    Necessity is the mother of invention. Plato usually gets the credit for this quote, though no one really knows for sure. We all come up with brilliant ideas, eventually. Just look at Pinterest.

    I think environment also plays a key role. Our surroundings set the scene and our imagination takes off. When I see a pile of “junk,” I wonder what I could do with it.

    I think we should take this same approach to our landscape. Walk by the front of your house with a visitor’s eyes.

  • Voters head to polls Tuesday for primaries

    From staff reports

    Anderson County Republicans did their part to select their party’s nominee for president during a caucus earlier this year.

    On Tuesday, Democrats have their turn when they will head to polls for the primary election that features the ongoing battle between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    But that doesn’t mean Republicans need to stay home.

    Two names appear on the ballot in a primary election for Sen. Rand Paul, including Stephen Howard Slaughter and James R. Gould.
