  • Losing my mother, gaining a brother

    My mom’s dying, and I’ve been gone for a few weeks spending time with her before it happens.

    When that will be God knows; the rest of us are left to sit, wait and be thankful for the short time we have to be with her.

  • Fire blight symptoms visible

    Fire blight is the most important disease of apple and pear in Kentucky.

    Symptoms have begun to appear throughout the Commonwealth; however, initial infections occurred at bloom. The pathogen survives winter in dead, dying, and diseased wood and in cankers. Removal of these pathogen sources can reduce spread of fire blight and should be completed in late winter while the pathogen is dormant.

    Fire blight facts:

  • The lowdown on Bill Best’s beans

    Well, Mother Nature seems to have entered her schizophrenic stage. We’ve had sweltering heat and cold rains, dry nights with high temps and wet nights with cool temps. For our summer vegetables, it’s the equivalent of entering the cold and flu season, making them vulnerable to disease.

  • Media complicit in Obamacare

    To the editor:

    When Obamacare was pushed through eight years ago the majority of Americans did not want it. Yet the media, working with Democrats, did everything they could to sell it.

    That plan was full of holes and famously included the lie of the year that you could keep your plan and keep your doctor.

  • Shelburne concert organizers, donors deserve praise

    It’s never easy to pull off something as difficult as a music concert. If it was easy, many people would be doing it.

    That, in itself, makes what Joani Clark did in bringing some Nashville music to Lawrenceburg Friday night so special.

    While a day of rain considerably hurt the turnout for Nashville Live on the Green, there is no doubt the event was a huge success.

  • Getting played

    In the photos, Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak are right there on center stage, yucking it up with President Trump in the Oval Office.

    It might be our White House, but Russia set the meeting parameters, Russia snapped all the photos, Russia did the publicity release, and Russia got our president to bar U.S. media from the event altogether.

    So much for America First.
