  • If you are wondering how those flowering planters miraculously bloom on the square or how the pocket park between the Woman’s Club building and the Masonic building is maintained, here’s the answer. Main Street does it, partly through purchase of plants and rock and partly through volunteers planting and weeding efforts. Sometimes we are assisted by supervised inmates.

  • Congratulations to our board members who have appeared in the Herald News recently: Michael Huff, named a Governor’s Scholar; Nina Cundiff, elected 2010-2012 Fourth District Vice-Governor for the Kentucky Federation of Women’s Clubs.  Also, great picture of Leah Carter with some of the Lincolns a couple of weeks back.

  • While several species of insects pollinate plants, honeybees are the best pollinators and therefore the most essential. They are exceptionally efficient at collecting and transferring pollen among the flowers of a particular crop.

  • Farming has plenty of challenges, but probably one of the hazards that farmers worry about least are the dangers from working in the sun year-round. Farmers should pay attention to the condition of their skin.
