  • Send those garden pests packing

    You know how there is always this big upsurge in babies being born, after a long, cold winter?

    Well, I guess bugs have to keep warm too. They’re everywhere! If the cold really did kill of a bunch of bugs, the survivors are making up for it. In spades!

    Now, let’s deal with them.

    Starting with ourselves, there are lots of ways to keep insects from bugging us.

    There are commercial products with DEET. Not my cup of tea.

    There are dryer sheets, when tucked into your pockets and collars, to keep the mosquitoes at bay.

  • Emerald Ash Borer was confirmed in Anderson County 2 years ago

    As agriculture agent, many calls come into our office regarding Emerald Ash Borer.

    This insect is transferred largely through firewood and has become a very destructive pest. Emerald ash borer has killed millions of trees since its discovery in 2002.

    As of April 3, quarantine regulations for the emerald ash borer changed in Kentucky to include the entire state.

  • No matter how you spin it, abortion is murder of human life

    No matter how you spin it, abortion is murder of a human life

    A year ago, Kermit Gosnell was found guilty in the deaths of three infants and a female patient, subsequently receiving a life sentence for his actions.

    His arrest and trial served as a wake-up call concerning the monstrous methods that are being used to abort millions of babies each year.

  • Government tramples 2nd Amendment rights

    I am sincerely curious. This isn’t just a rhetorical question, whether you’d be “riding the fence” about a miniscule restoration of 1st Amendment rights if our government trampled those as they do the 2nd Amendment?

    Suppose, specifically, that:

    •If you gave your neighbor, on her way to the store, money to buy you a newspaper and she does, you’ve both committed felonies.

    •It’s a felony to possess a newspaper within 1,000 feet of a school unless there’s a state “newspaper anywhere” law.

  • City’s step toward tourism development is commendable

    The City of Lawrenceburg passed its Fiscal Year 2014-15 budget without a hitch last week and, along with it, took the first steps toward serious tourism development.

    They were baby steps, for sure, but steps nonetheless.

    In the budget, the City dedicated $100,000 to cover promotions, capital outlay, training and salaries and benefits.

    What this City-funded office will look like hasn’t quite been fleshed out but it’s a start. And it’s a commendable start, indeed.

  • Does toooooo... say it, Benghazi matters
  • But doesn’t Sterling have the right to be stupid and a racist?

    Perhaps I’m a little late tossing in my two cents about Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his racist remarks. I would have thought by now that this storm might pass.

    It hasn’t.

    In a nutshell, the billionaire real estate investor told a woman, V. Stiviano, not to bring black people to his games. Apparently, he was in a flirtatious relationship, or attempting to be in an amorous relationship, with Stiviano, who is part African-American.
