  • The holiday season is a perfect time of year to teach children the importance of community service.
    Start them out by choosing a charity in your own community; talk to your children about the charities they would like to support.
    If you decide to donate to a food bank, give your children the money you decide to spend on donations and let them choose the food items at the grocery store.
    Thoughtful selections give them a chance to think about what some who are less fortunate might need.

  • Reports of bed bugs again are on the rise in the United States; once nearly eliminated, they now are commonly found in homes, apartments, hotels and theaters.

    Common chickweed, henbit, and purple deadnettle are cool-season weeds we usually see in crop fields during the fall and winter.
    How-ever, other weeds, such as dandelions, have become more prevalent in recent years, according to J. D. Green, an Extension weed specialist at the University of Kentucky.
    Dandelions are generally considered a major lawn or pasture weed, but increasingly have been found in grain-crop fields.
