  • Using old wives’ tales to predict winter

    Welcome to October. Let the leaves come tumbling down. Our leaves have started to show their true colors and while they do look beautiful hanging from the trees, the sooner they make a carpet the happier I’ll be. Weather folklore says the longer they hang on the tree, the worse winter will be.

  • Might be a good year for creep feeding calves

    With record-high cattle prices, many Kentucky beef producers might look to creep feeding to put additional weight on calves before weaning.

    Beef specialist’s at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture usually are very cautious of the recommendation that we creep feed calves however, they believe creep feeding may provide an opportunity this year. If producers are careful, they could cash in.

    For those who missed the story on A1, the health department is opening a family care clinic next month that will solve the dilemma of where Medicaid patients can receive care, as well as being open to the privately insured.

  • Local business pivotal to building tourism

    Well, it seems the Anderson County Tourism Commission is committed to rising from the ashes of the previous tourism commission. That’s good. It will never get anywhere whining and bellyaching about the position it’s in now. Just move full steam ahead.

    There seems to be a handful of people on the commission who really want to make this work. Strides were made to elect leadership in the commission with Pam Brough, president of the chamber of commerce, nominated as the tourism commission chairperson.
