  • He died for us, we must live for him

    If you pose the question to anyone that you meet, “When you die, where will you spend eternity?” Almost without exception the answer will come, “in heaven.” But if you press the issue to ask, by what evidence you make that assertion, it frequently will start to fall apart. You see most men, when they die, would choose to go to heaven, they just don’t want a Holy, righteous, just, God to be there.

  • Pop art a hit at Turner Elementary

    Fourth-graders showed off their primary colors in art class last week at Robert B. Turner Elementary School.

    In a unit about pop art — a style that emerged in the 1950s that turns items from popular culture into an art form — the students were learning about pioneers Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

  • Burgoo contests show community’s heart

    Column as I see ’em …

    It’s probably my bias bubbling over, but as September comes to an end each year I can’t help but think what a great community we have.

    Of course that’s following yet another tremendous Burgoo Cook-off, the newspaper’s annual fundraiser for Shop With a Cop that had a record-setting year last weekend and drew a tremendous crowd of judges and an even more tremendous field of competitors.

    After six years it could be easy to become complacent about how well that event does, but check this out.

  • Feeding corn? Be cautious about ear rot

    Conditions during July were favorable for infections by a couple of fungi that are known to cause ear rots of corn.

    Observations of Diplodia ear rot already have been made in some corn fields in Kentucky this year.

    Although conditions have also been favorable for Gibberella ear rot, I am not aware of any observations of that disease in Kentucky corn fields at this time.

  • Winter squash much more than fall a decoration

    Happy fall. The Autumnal Equinox has come. To me, that means shorter days and colder temps.

    Early fall is kind of like a breaking in period. Mother Nature will be fluctuating the weather like a yo-yo just to get us used to things. As I prepare for my 20th Kentucky winter, I can honestly say I’ll never get used to it.

  • Group 151 meets, preps for trial

    Highway 151 residents held an informational pep rally of sorts Monday night as they prepare to head to trial in their efforts to force the state’s Transportation Cabinet to ban non-local delivery commercial trucks from the highway.

    Leaders of Group 151, Don Isaac and Don McCormick, gave about 20 residents an update on the lawsuit, filed earlier this year following decades of wrecks, serious property damage and deaths that have occurred on the narrow stretch of dangerous state highway that truckers use as a shortcut between I-64 and U.S. 127 in Lawrenceburg.

  • Annual Cook-Off, eating contest highlight Burgoo

    Two new champs were crowned during this past weekend’s Burgoo Festival.

    Chris and Maeghan Disponett’s team from Applied Processes claimed first place in the annual Burgoo Cook-off, knocking off five-time champion Jesse Sanford, who won his crowns cooking for Four Ros-es Distillery but this year cooked for his own brand, Stoney Top Burgoo.

    The cook-off drew a huge crowd Saturday to the Lawrenceburg Green and raised a record $1,734 for the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Shop With a Cop program to purchase Christmas gifts for chil-dren in need.
