  • Kentucky-grown asparagus, onions help healthy diets

    One of the sure signs of spring in Kentucky is the appearance of our own Kentucky Asparagus. We enjoy its fresh flavor from April through May. This versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, lightly boiled, steamed, grilled, stir fried or baked.

    Asparagus was first grown more than 2,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean region and was brought to America by the early colonists. It is the slender shoot of a perennial plant that ranges from pencil thin to about one-half inch in thickness. Our Kentucky farmers’ markets offer asparagus picked at its peak tenderness.

    The county budget was under discussion as magistrates questioned a 4.4 percent raise for all county employees and elected officials. Magistrates said they felt elected officials should be excluded, while Judge-Executive Jack Couch explained the appropriation was in response to the cost of living index for the year.

  • Cooking healthier meals with homegrown herbs

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease and stroke.
