  • How to make an Eclipse Cereal Box Viewer

    A solar eclipse is one of the most exciting celestial events we can observe.
    If you are lucky enough to find yourself along the path of totality, the moon will completely cover the sun allowing you to see the corona, the sun’s atmosphere.

    Outside of the path of totality, you can still enjoy the partial phase of the solar eclipse, but you need to use eye protection and/or an eclipse-viewing device for indirect viewing.

  • Williamstown Woman’s Club needs help to honor veterans

    One American flag flapping in the wind can be moving for most patriotic Americans, but 100 such flags with stars and stripes waving in close proximity can be breathtaking.
    Several years ago, the members of the Williamstown Woman’s Club were looking for ways to make a meaningful difference in the community, and they decided to display 100 American flags along Eibeck Lane for every veteran’s funeral held at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North (KVCN) in Williamstown.

  • Indeterminate or determinate?

    I received a letter from a reader years ago that asked somewhat of a philosophical question regarding determinate tomatoes.  Yes, philosophical, because she asked why would we plant a tomato that sets its fruit, reaches a certain point, stops growing, ripens nearly at once and then dies?

  • God’s plan is always ‘Plan A’

    Recently, I met a woman who had moved to the area to stay with family after a painful divorce and some health problems on top of that.
    She had lost everything and was starting over.
