  • Fall color always there
  • Wireworms in the potato patch

    I have loads of potatoes this year, most of them are clean as a whistle.  We get them out early so they are ready to harvest by mid to late August.This early start seems to offset any significant problem with wireworms.  The telltale sign of wireworms: if you do have lots of tiny holes in your potatoes, you likely saw the tough little yellow or rust colored worms when you were digging your crop.

  • Ensuring retirees have a secure retirement

    Bringing about a flurry of facts and a storm of misconceptions, Kentucky’s pension crisis has become one of the most dominating news stories in recent months.

  • Magistrate supports courthouse repairs, not costly assessment

    In response to the article you published on Sept. 27, 2017 on the front page of the Grant County News, I would like to express my point of view as a magistrate who represents the 1st District; Corinth and Williamstown.  
    I, along with others (based on the number of inquiries I’ve received), were very much surprised to have read that Brandsetter Carroll Inc. was hired to complete an assessment of the courthouse.

  • Stray seed, hybrids, the mighty Hubbard squash

     

  • HIV threat in Northern Kentucky real, but one we can better understand through testing

    Here are a few facts that we know:

    Northern Kentucky has the third highest number of individuals infected with HIV in the state, with about 30-35 new cases each year. 

  • Are you there, God?

    By Rachel Dawn, Guest Columnist

    It was a sweltering Friday in July, but I was inside. I was sitting just outside of a hotel meeting room door anxiously waiting for my name to be called. 

    It was my first writer’s conference and I had scored one of the few, coveted appointment slots with a publisher; during which I would pitch my book in hopes they would offer me a contract.
