  • On Extension, UK giving us the shaft

    Column as I see ’em …

    I wasn’t aware until recently that the University of Kentucky is going broke.

    Please forgive my ignorance because while I don’t venture into the city very often, it would appear when I do that the state’s namesake university is humming along nicely.

  • Cattle ear tags help with fly reduction

    Cattle receiving insecticide-impregnated ear tags take their fly control system with them. Ear tags have provided a popular option to control the horn fly, a blood-sucking insect that hits producers with a $1 billion bill for losses and control costs each year. In addition, the tags can reduce face fly numbers on cattle.

  • How to turn your brown thumb green

    In the fall I call it peeping; in the spring I call it leaving. The ornery kid in me really wanted to start this paragraph with “I’m leaving”, but thought better of it.

    Actually, I’m just really enjoying watching the trees get their leaves on.

  • ECC Teacher of the Year shies away from spotlight

    Amanda Cartinhour, a special education teacher at Ezra B. Sparrow Early Childhood Learning Center, was excited about winning teacher of the year but was not so keen on all the attention.

    “(I thought) Oh, OK, this is awesome, but I am just doing my job,” said Cartinhour.

  • Many uses for healthy avocados

    Avocados aren’t just for guacamole.

    I’ve seen avocado ice cream, brownies and muffins, avocado-walnut pesto, avocado dips and even avocado soup.

    Avocados are a very unique fruit. They contain lots of fiber and are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as B-vitamins, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C. They have more potassium than bananas. Eating avocados has been linked with various health benefits, such as decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and arthritis.
