  • Ragweed is a bane to farmers and allergy sufferers alike

    Ragweed is a common problem to both allergy sufferers and to farmers. In late summer some people suffer allergic reactions to ragweeds and other plant pollens. Ragweed also has the potential to severely interfere with crop production and reduce crop yield.

    Individuals who are sensitive to the plant’s pollen are usually very aware of its presence. When plants begin to flower in August and early September, the airborne pollen is the culprit for the severe irritation to sensitive individuals. When exposed to the oil the plant produces, some people even develop a skin rash.

    Local law enforcement has been faced with a string of break-ins and burglaries that “really don’t make a lot of sense.”

    That’s how Hodgenville Police Chief John Cottrill summed up the latest break-ins at Bent N Dent in Smith’s Plaza, Paula’s Hot Biscuit on West Water Street and Royal Pizza on Lincoln Boulevard.

    The thieves took the cash register from each business. At Royal Pizza, they also took a clock from the wall; at Paula’s, they took a window air conditioner.
