  • House Speaker: ‘right to work wrong for Kentucky’

    Over the last four months, there has unfortunately been a renewed effort to breathe life into a proposal that most economists declared dead long ago. Supporters call it “right to work”; the rest of us, with the facts on our side, call it “right to work for less.”
    Those backing the concept claim it will cure everything but the common cold. Not embracing it, they say, has cost Kentucky countless jobs and limited worker choice.
    They’re wrong on both counts.

  • Used cars: A love story

    My love of the used car began some time ago. I love the used car because I’m cheap, frugal, broke; whichever adjective that you prefer. I am ashamed to admit that I’m also smitten with some of the fancy options. The fact that somebody else took the hit for those features, and that I eventually benefit, is also a selling point.

  • The essentials on essential oils

    By now, you’ve likely heard about essential oils, but may not be familiar with what they are and their benefits and risks. Essential oils are highly concentrated oils derived from plants. While used for centuries, their popularity has recently soared, especially among individuals looking for natural healing options other than prescription medications.

  • Mulch, mold and fungi

    I am often asked the question during the summertime how to get rid of mold in landscape mulch. University of Kentucky horticulture specialist John Strang and Extension plant pathologist Paul Vincelli offer some helpful suggestions. In addition to their suggestions, I have often found that a brisk raking of the mulch will allow the surface to dry sufficiently to disrupt the life cycle of the fungi or mold.
    Mulch can be beneficial in many ways on plant beds, around foundation shrubs and other gardening locations in your yard, but mold can threaten its benefits.
