  • Asparagus: Herald of spring around the Bluegrass State

    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.

    Down five runs heading into the sixth inning, the Raiders rallied, but fell just short, 5-4, to rival Carroll County on the road Thursday, March 22.

    “I’m really happy about that because we’ve had trouble with (closing out games) in the past,” Carroll first year head coach Josh Mefford said. “We’ve had those bad innings where we’ve kicked the ball around, but this time they hit the ball … We kept our heads in it, and we made the plays we were supposed to make.”

  • Where is God?

    Every time my town has an event that draws a lot of people, from a Saturday’s farmer’s market to a festival or parade, a local pastor and members of his church are there, handing out gospel tracts.
    During the St. Patrick’s Day parade, Brother Troy was on the corner, handing out tracts.

    The one he gave me had an I.Q. test on the front with only one question. “GODISNOWHERE — What does this say?”

    People either see “God is nowhere” or “God is now here.”
