  • Black cherry trees can be dangerous

    When you drive through the rolling land in Henry County, you can find many black cherry trees, including some in farm fencerows. While standing upright, there is not much danger, but if one of these trees or a limb falls in a windstorm, there can be problems for livestock.

    The leaves of black cherry trees, especially wilted ones, are high in cyanic acid, which can kill livestock by depriving them of oxygen. You can reduce the likelihood of livestock losses due to wild black cherry trees by cutting them out of fencerows.

  • 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.
