  • Poison hemlock a noxious weed
  • Memory

    I have reached the point in my life where my “memory” is as reliable as the weather in our fair commonwealth. If I don’t put it in my phone or slap a note on the wall I can and will forget. I’m constantly feeling the startling shock of awareness that I have forgotten something; and that something is usually critical to my well being. My kids have learned to remind me repeatedly of things I’ve forgotten or they know I will forget. They have been down this particular road too many times to not accommodate their mother’s leaky memory.

  • The Law fulfilled for us

    My friend Mike loves kitschy stuff and he loves God. So, anything that combines kitsch and God is a slice of heaven to him.
    Recently, someone gave him a Moses and the Ten Commandments clock. Moses, holding a stone tablet in each arm, is looking off into the distance, all holy-like, and there’s lightning behind him.
    Every hour, but not quite on the hour, the clock will play some light piano music and a voice — could be God, could be Moses — announces a commandment. “Thou shalt not kill” or “Honor your father and mother.”

  • LOOKING BACK

    June 20, 1985 (30 Years Ago)
    Strawberry diseases and trickling irrigation kept the attention of a group of horticulturists from all over the Louisville area during a field trip in Trimble county last Friday. Sponsored by the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, the trip focused on problems and solutions in strawberry renovation, disease control, trickling irrigation, and other farm concerns. Specialists from the University of Kentucky traveled with the group of about 15 to various parts of Bray Orchards to inspect tomato, pepper, and raspberry fields.

  • New laws in effect next week

    The approval of new laws may be a wintertime activity, but in most cases, this legislation doesn’t actually take effect until the heat of summer.
    Unless a law has an emergency clause or a specific enactment date, it becomes official 90 days after the General Assembly completes its work. This year, that falls on June 24th.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Massie introduces DRIVE Act

    At a recent House Rules committee hearing, one of my colleagues from New York declared that the potholes in the roads in her district are so bad, “you can lose your car in them.”  Kentuckians and Americans from all over the country agree. It is long past time that something was done to address the deplorable state of the highways and infrastructure in this country.
