  • With short blasts, the airbrush gun sprayed bursts of red paint on the blue and white surface of the bag. Moments later, Janet Brown arranged potato chips near the open bag so the chips appeared to be spilling out.

    But the chips were not real potato chips. They were specially shaped dried fondant pieces and were part of her cake, which looked like a bag of chips.

    “When I work with cakes, I work with the real thing,” Brown said. She had put a real potato chip bag beside her chocolate cake to use as a model for her cake sculpting.

  • Soybeans are in the fields for about six months of the year in LaRue County.  Let’s look at a brief summary of grower actions during these months.

    May: Full-season soybean planting should begin by mid May. Growers will burn down or till weeds prior to planting. Roundup Ready soybeans are grown most often now. Pre-emergence herbicides can be applied immediately after planting and before the crop emerges. Stand counts should be conducted to determine the quality of the stand. 

  • We first offered our new Main Street Membership program at Extension Expo and were pleased to have quite a few of you sign up, about half also volunteering to help with projects. People are still coming in to the office to sign up: $5 for students and seniors 60 or over; $10 for other individuals; $20 for businesses and organizations and $100 for a lifetime membership. We will be reaching out into the community to find more corporate members and individuals and we have no boundaries where members are concerned.

  • A grill owned by the LaRue County Pork Producers was returned last week after being “misplaced” for a couple of months. The group loaned the grill, valued at $1,500, to a local church in February, according to Bill Goatley.

    One of the church members placed the grill in a storage building and forgot about it, Goatley said.

    The Pork Producers can start scheduling community cooks.
