  • Chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. An estimated 2,291,000 U.S. civilians ages 14-39 are infected with Chlamydia based on the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, and women are frequently re-infected if their sex partners are not treated.

  • James LaRue Jr. was the guest speaker of the Hodgenville Rotary Club last week.

    LaRue gave a presentation on those present at the time of Abraham Lincoln’s birth and referenced 50 years of his personal research from various affidavits and writings.

    The Rotarians welcomed a new member last week: Denise Brooks with State Farm Insurance.

  • By late August, U.S. 31E from Hodgenville to Bardstown, then U.S. 150 from Bardstown to Danville, could be designated an All-American Road. The designation is the highest in the National Scenic Byways Program, a part of the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration. There are just 25 All-American Roads in the United States.

  • We could draw from the poet Robert Browning’s statement, “Grow old along with me; the best is yet to be,” a parallel for the Christian walk in life.

    You trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior; He washed away your sins; you became a child of God. With each experience, your fellowship with him grows sweeter, and the best is reserved for the believer when life here on earth is completed.

  • Growers may be seeing a lot of aphids in some tobacco fields. At this point in the season, the time left until topping is the major factor to consider when making a decision on aphid control. Yield and quality losses to aphids occur gradually – from the onset of infestation, about six weeks after transplant, until topping. Most of the loss is due to reduced leaf size and weight from heavy infestations. There is little chance for return from attempting to control heavy infestations just before harvest. The loss has already occurred.

  • The annual LaRue County Extension Grain Field Day will be 5 p.m. Sept. 1 at the Duell Creekside Farm, 5960 Sonora Road between Hodgenville and Sonora.

    The grower cooperator again this year is Carlos Tucker. The farm is owned by Reba Duell and is about five miles from the intersection of  the Lincoln Parkway and KY 84/357 near Hodgenville, and about 3.5 miles from the KY 84 and U.S. 31W intersection near the Interstate 65 Sonora exit. This is the same farm as last year’s grain field day.
