  • University of Kentucky plant breeder Tim Phillips has developed a new tall fescue variety that is nontoxic to grazing animals.
    The variety, Lacefield MaxQ II, is the result of selections Phillips, a member of the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, made from endophyte-free Kentucky 31 and related lines. Phillips named the variety for UK Professor Emeritus Garry Lacefield upon his retirement to honor his numerous contributions to the forage industry and to the college.

  • Walker’s Bend where I began my life was rural, really rural, not gentrified country or suburban—rural. The main difference between rural and city, you have more bathroom options. Self-sufficient, we raised our own food, butchered our own meat, we weren’t part of the farm to table movement, we were garden to mouth.

  • Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.
    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.
    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.
    I was there to interview the woman for a newspaper story and tried to have a conversation with her but couldn’t concentrate because Jesus wouldn’t stop talking.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    It was a quiet meeting at Bedford Rotary on Aug. 9. In fact, few sounds were apparent for the better part of 30 minutes except for low background recorded gospel music and the silent “swish” of Robin Welty’s art tools as she completed a full picture starting with just a blank, white paper. The full picture was not apparent until she turned on the black lights above and below the production at the end to reveal a quite inspiring work of art.
