  • 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 tell-tale 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. In the past few weeks as folks begin to dig their potatoes I hear the inquiry, “What are the tiny holes in my potatoes and how do I prevent them?”

  • ‘Our relationship with God is not a matter of reward, but of love’

    Lately, I’ve been pondering the story Jesus told of the lost son, or what’s more commonly called the parable of the prodigal son.
    The son demands his inheritance from his father, which is basically him telling his dad he wishes him dead, and then takes the money and runs far away, squandering his wealth on wild living.
    When he ends up broke, he finds a job feeding pigs and finds himself so hungry that he longs to eat the pig food.

  • Winding roads from the past still remembered by some

    Many early roads that snaked through the hills and hollows of Kentucky have been lost to history, their names and locations forever erased from the memory of man. Most were named after a settler who held a patent on land through which the road ran. However, remnants of the some of these roads exist, and their stories linger in local folklore.
    Road names were known to change over time, perhaps when the pronunciation of a road wasn’t clearly understood. Such seems the case with Kay’s Branch Road.

  • With help of extension office, students learn to properly prepare food

    Properly preparing food became second nature to fifth graders this week at the Owen County Cooperative Extension Office. With a mixture of fruits, vegetables and other foods, students had the chance to create a five-course meal that they would then eat.
    To bring a greater knowledge of food to Owen County fifth graders, Owen County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences Judy Hetterman led students in the grant-funded nutrition education program titled Recipies For Life. The program offers students the opportunity to learn more about the good they eat.
