  • Diplodia ear rot may show up in some cornfields as they approach maturity. The abundance of wet weather around the silking period provided opportunities for infections to occur.

    This ear rot appears as white cottony fungal growth between kernels, usually progressing from the ear shank upward and from the cob outward.

  • A 7-year-old won the Lincoln Jamboree talent show, open to all ages, in July.

    Malerie Skaggs, 7, of Hodgenville sang "Coat of Many Colors" by Dolly Parton. She is the daughter of Troy and Paula Skaggs.

    She will appear again at the Jamboree on Aug. 22 as a guest on the show.

  • The type of tomato you use often affects the quality of salsas. Paste tomatoes, such as Roma, have firmer flesh and produce thicker salsas than large slicing tomatoes, although both types make good salsas. Salsa can be thickened by adding tomato paste.

    Use only high quality tomatoes for canning salsa or any other tomato product. Poor quality or overripe tomatoes will yield a very poor salsa and may spoil.

  • As construction and excavation activity in Kentucky rises with the temperature, so does the likelihood of damage to underground utility lines.

    “Hitting a buried utility line is, at best, a costly inconvenience,” Kentucky Public Service Commission Chairman David Armstrong says. “Hitting an electric or gas line can be a life-threatening experience.

    “That is why the PSC is reminding everyone – whether a contractor or a homeowner – to call 811 before digging anywhere there might be underground utility lines,” he said.
