  • DeBurger slugging for Transy

    When Krista DeBurger played softball for the Henry County Lady Cats most fans that followed the team thought of her as a pitcher first. But DeBurger was also one of the best hitters on the team in her senior season and she is using her hitting prowess to make a big contribution to her college team, the Transylvania Pioneers.

    DeBurger, a freshman, is leading the team in home runs with five, batting average (.396) and RBIs (18). She also leads the team in slugging percentage and on-base percentage.

  • UK's improbable run to the finals

    I have to say it again. I didn’t see it coming. The Kentucky Wildcats’ gave me no indication that they could make a glorious run to the championship game of the NCAA tournament.

    When you look at the regular season run-in all you see is losses and lackluster performances.

    On Feb. 27, the Cats lost to Arkansas in overtime. One might say losing in overtime to Arkansas isn’t so bad. But it was a home game. The Cats don’t lose SEC home games,but they did this year…twice. The Gators got ‘em by 10 points in February.

  • Fighting libraries is counterintuitive

    If I were to take a poll of all of Kentucky, I wonder how many people would tell me that they had never used a library for anything. My guess is very few. Libraries are the sort of institutions that you use without ever realizing how important they are, and how strange life would be if they weren’t there.

    The Iceman Cometh

    The Iceman, the Snowman, the Zerotemp man cometh to Henry County over and over again during the last few months. Incredibly beautiful pictures of the stark white landscape only served to bring complaints of power outages, frozen water pipes, missed school days. The list goes on and on. Since we choose to live in a rural area, with all the advantages it has to offer, sometimes the disadvantages get the better of us.

  • What to do to salvage your fruit crops

    Late last week, we saw apples at silver tip and peaches at the swollen bud stage. So, if you haven’t done so yet, it is time to get the dormant oil and fixed copper spray on apples and pears for San Jose scale, aphid, mite and fire blight control. It is a little too late to control peach leaf curl on peaches with fixed copper since the buds have begun to swell, but an oil spray is recommended for San Jose scale and mite control if it hasn’t been applied.

  • Helping for 100 years to navigate change

    While change isn’t easy for some people, it’s inevitable in some circumstances. Throughout the history of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, countless agents have worked to help Kentuckians learn about and embrace important changes. This year will mark the anniversary of the passage of the Smith-Lever Act, which formally established the national Cooperative Extension Service system. The UK Cooperative Extension Service is celebrating ways that extension has helped clients change their lives for the better.
