  • How to remove weeds from your land

    The grasses are starting to green up which means spring is here. However, along with the grasses, many weeds have started to show up in fields, gardens and lawns.
    Weeds can play havoc from causing issues with livestock, medical issues for people and can take over crop fields.
    From dandelions to poison hemlock, weeds can come in many shapes and colors, and many times we don’t realize what we have. In most cases, certain weeds mimic harmless flowers.

  • Seasonal allergies: Nip them in the bud

    Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, fatigue, these are just a few of the signs of seasonal allergies — also known as hay fever.
    And get ready: It looks like we may have a real doozy of an allergy season this year.
    Milder winter temperatures in places can cause plants to pollinate early. And a rainier spring leads to quick plant growth, as well as an increase in mold.  
    Allergic reactions mostly occur when your body responds to a “false alarm.”

  • Flurry of bills move on for passage

    A flurry of activity stemming from committee meetings and the passage of bills marked a short but intense week six of the Kentucky General Assembly. Although the Senate was only in session from Monday to Wednesday of this week, committee meetings still met during the later part of the week to give final hearings to a few select bills.

  • Kentucky moving closer to federal ID cards

    The 2017 session is coming down to the wire, with major legislation still left to consider on two “concurrence” days next week. After March 15, we recess until March 29 and 30, when we reconvene for our final two days to review any gubernatorial vetoes.

  • Get involved: choose not to be a silent bystander

    The most recent election and ensuing political climate has, at times and arguably, led to negative after-effects for our nation, our citizenry and even our personal relationships. However, I would like to point out one positive result of the eventful political season – community involvement.

    The Eminence Warriors opened the baseball season with a home game against the Thomas Nelson Generals Friday night and came away with a 7-4 loss despite taking an early lead.

    Marshall Metten got the Warriors off to a good start in the bottom of the first after pitcher Jared Golden struck out three and gave up one hit in the top of the inning.

    Metten, a freshman, smacked a two-run home run to centerfield with one out and fellow freshman Matthew Hamilton on second base. It was Metten’s first at-bat in a high school game.

  • 36 degrees? Play ball!

    Jon Kasten of HCHS and Tye Lawson of EHS are pretty clever for athletic directors. A certain local sportswriter sent a somewhat desperate email to them Friday that was supposedly from the weather-related illness coordinator of the KHSAA.

    The email attempted to make them believe that games for Friday had been cancelled due to the new KHSAA wind chill index, similar to the heat index table used to decide whether fall sports teams can play or not when it is hot as blazes in mid-August.
