  • We cannot control the weather but we can control what our tomatoes eat, so to speak. At planting time, we prepare the soil with composted hen manure and a little organic fertilizer. We also mulch around the plants immediately in order to moderate soil moisture and to prevent the spread of soil-borne diseases.   This year, our work at building healthy soil has paid off because the tomatoes are thriving.  Some folks have not been as lucky as the rain poured down earlier in the season!

  • If it’s true, as the proverb says, that “envy rots the bones,” then my bones are dust.
    Every once in awhile I hear from a certain friend whose life is perfect, or so I think.
    Just recently she posted on Facebook: “Well, we can cross a trip to Ireland off our list!! Had a fabulous vacation with all our wonderful kids, their spouses and our five -- five!! -- adorable grandbabies!!!”

  • We harvested some fantastic looking “Red Candy Apple’ purple onions a few weeks ago and it is now time to start digging some ‘Yukon Gold’ potatoes and garlic over the weekend. I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well!   We need to wait another week or so to harvest the ‘Sterling’ and ‘Walla Walla’ onions because tops have yet to flop over…. this allows them to store better. 

  • Jamie Baker of Dry Ridge and Jeff Nantz of Lexington are pleased to announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Katherine Frances Nantz to Jonathon Zachery Waller of Tompkinsville, son of Jonathan Waller and the late Shanna Hoover.

    The wedding is planned for Sept. 23, 2017.

    The bride is a 2011 graduate of Williamstown High School. She is also a 2014 graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in communications.

  • After serving for two decades under three sheriff’s administrations, Fay Webster is heading into retirement to spend more time with her family, and hopefully travel the country.

    “She’s going to be a great loss. She’s been a great asset to our office,” said Sheriff Chuck Dills, who has worked with Webster since her first day at the office on May 1, 1997. “There’s been no turnover for 20 years with the deputy clerks, so this is the first time we’re replacing the position.”

  • Brian Melton joined St. Elizabeth Physicians Dry Ridge full-time at the end of Jan. 2017.
    Melton finished his nurse practitioner program at Northern Kentucky University in December 2016. Melton said it was an easy transition as his dad, Gary Melton, built the office 36 years ago and he spent a great deal of his childhood in the office.
