  • Nerdy hobbies include genealogy

    I am what most people would call a nerd. I always have been. I can rattle off the names of every major (and most minor) Game of Thrones characters, I love history, I take an odd amount of pride in remembering completely pointless movie trivia (did you know that all of Jeff Bridges’ attire in The Big Lebowski was from his own closet?) and I generally occupy my free time with the nerdiest hobbies around. I bowl, I play video games and I’m all caught up in collecting those Pop! vinyl figures lately.

  • Four points for seeding forages in late summer

    The period from late summer to early fall is generally the best time to seed cool season grasses such as orchardgrass, tall fescue, and timothy (alfalfa and clover typically do better in the spring). Consider these four points to increase your success.

    First, address the soil’s fertility needs. Inadequate levels of phosphorous, potassium or limestone can limit productive yields and decrease stand life.

  • Local farmer named Champion of Change

     

    A LaRue County farmer was recently recognized by Washington D.C. and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Quint Pottinger was one of only 15 farmers in the nation chosen as a White House Champion of Change.

    “All across the country, ordinary Americans are doing extraordinary things in their communities to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.” That is how whitehouse.gov introduces the Champions of Change program. USDA recognized Pottinger, along with 14 others, during a ceremony at the White House on July 29.

Shelburne concert on Saturday night. In addition, Bivens said each tour stop had more than 100 visitors, with most having many more.
