  • Appreciation: A lost art

    I’m a man, a father and a husband. I’m also a boss and a judge. I also believe in magic.
    I got married in 1981 to my wife. We have two children.
    The children are older now but when they were younger they were involved in many things; sports, activities and school, just to name a few. At the same time, they were well fed, wore clean clothes and always cared for when they became ill. My children are respectful, mannerly and great people.

  • Kentucky Backyard Beekeepers continue to educate, provide honey

    In the past three years, the Kentucky Backyard Beekeepers have greatly expanded our activities at the Grant County Fair.
    From just a few honey entries, we’ve offered a full honey show with categories in various grades of honey, hive products, food, art and crafts.

  • Troubleshooting tomato problems

    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!

  • Cure for rotting bones

    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!!!”

  • VAUGHT’S VIEWS

    Tina Cobb was caught off guard when her son, Randall, called to tell her he had some “news” for her.
    Since he recently got married, she thought maybe he was going to tell her he was expecting a child. Instead, he told her he was being inducted in the Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame in September.
    “We had never talked about this. It was a big surprise when he told me,” said Tina Cobb. “It was a total surprise to me.”
