  • The importance of protecting horses from ticks

    By Lee Townsend, PhD

    Ticks have been active this spring and early summer despite a harsh winter and will be around until August. The lone star tick and the American dog tick are the most troublesome species in Kentucky. Lone star tick bites are very irritating and tick feeding wounds can become infected. Check with your veterinarian about tick-borne disease incidence in your area.

  • Time for home canning pickles

    There is nothing that sets off a cold cut sandwich better than the taste of a pickle, and with so many varieties, you are bound to find one to suit every palate. So it probably won’t surprise you that pickles are a popular home food preservation item.
    To ensure safe, tasty home-canned pickles, always follow research-based recipes, such as those offered by Extension, that have been tested for product safety. Follow the recipe and use the proper amounts of the appropriate ingredients to yield the best flavor from your food and to prevent food-borne illness.

  • Mercy is triumphant over judgment

    Back when I was neurotically obsessive about making bracelets and loved them to distraction, I ran out of room on my wrists to wear them all and made some for my car to wear — car bracelets, if you will.
    Using green glass and pewter alphabet letter beads, I made three car bracelets to hang on my rear view mirror, spelling out “grace,” “hope” and “mercy.”

    July 12, 1984 (30 Years Ago)
    Trimble County again this year had a safer and saner regatta crowd than in years past. The number of physical arrests was 115, the same number as last year. The year before there were 200 arrests, according to Trooper Jim Mudd, spokesman for the Kentucky State Police LaGrange Post.

  • New laws become official on July 15 in Commonwealth

    A common misconception about the legislative process is that all state laws take effect right after the governor signs them.
    While that assumption is understandable, the truth is that most laws are not official until 90 days after the end of a legislative session.  This year, that date falls on July 15th.
    There are some exceptions.  If a law addresses a pressing need – as we saw this spring with the problem many school districts had regarding an excessive number of snow days – the fix the General Assembly passes can take effect immediately.
