Today's Features

  • Asparagus is the herald of spring.  Its tender stalks poke up from the ground during the first warm and wet days of the season.  More Kentucky producers than ever are growing asparagus.  It is a member of the Lily family and its origin is traced back to Eurasia.  

    In Kentucky, asparagus is in season from April through May.  It is a good source of vitamin A and folate.  One pound of asparagus yields four, one-half cup servings.  A serving contains around 22 calories, 2 grams of protein, and 4 grams of carbohydrate.  

  • Unseasonably warm temperatures have brought about an early spring flush of legumes in our pastures. As a result, the UK Veterinary Diagnostic Lab is already examining cases of frothy bloat in beef cattle.

  • Eizabeth F. McKinney-Mehas of Bedford has made the Dean’s List every semester for four years at Lindsay Wilson College.

  • 30 Years Ago (April 1, 1982)
    A group representing the Marble Hill nuclear power plant met Wednesday at the office of County Judge-Executive Clyde Greenwood and the gist of the discussion was along lines of procuring money for planning from the builders. Kentucky and Trimble County takes the position that Kentucky taxpayers shouldn’t pay a dime’s worth of cost for protection from something created by an Indiana based utility.
