  • Facebook post no reflection on sheriff

    Column as I see ’em …

    Aside from a couple of Kentucky Sheriffs Association banquets, I’ve never had dinner with Sheriff Troy Young.

    Not at a restaurant. Not at either of our homes, and we’re practically neighbors.

    Nor have I had dinner with any of his roster of deputies.

    Oh, sure, I’ve spent countless hours with those folks at wrecks, crime scenes and the like, but as for having personal friendships or relationships, that’s not really possible, given what I do for a living.

  • Children can be gardeners for life

    Jeez-o-pete this summer is going by fast. I continually have to remind myself that summer temperatures stay with us through September.

  • ‘Summer slump’ is a sign of fescue toxicosis

    Tall fescue is a popular grass for Kentucky pastures for many reasons — it is hardy and tolerates drought, has a root system that aids in controlling erosion and can stand up to heavy grazing.

    Farmers can even stockpile it for winter grazing. However, an endophyte fungus that commonly infects the plant can affect livestock. Summertime tends to be peak time for fungus-related problems.

  • The melting pot is boiling

    The world lately has become a pretty scary mess.

    A gay nightclub in Orlando gets held hostage by a terrorist who killed 49 and wounded 53 people in the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in American history. It was also the deadliest terror attack in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
