  • Growing Asparagus

    Asparagus. A vegetable that I wouldn’t touch with a ten foot stick as a child is now my favorite vegetable to eat and grow in the garden. We have received multiple requests for information on raising asparagus over the last couple of weeks here in the extension office. Here are some helpful things to remember when growing asparagus at home.

  • Man arrested for fleeing

    A Hart County man was arrested for fleeing police and other charges last Thursday when police attempted to serve a warrant at a residence on A B Ward Road near Hodgenville.

    Arrested at the scene was Dexter L. Booker, 48, of Munfordville.

    According to the LaRue County Sheriff’s Department, Sheriff Russell McCoy and Deputy Sheriff Kevin Bennett responded to the residence to serve a warrant on Booker. Once officers arrived, Booker was seen working in the front yard and when asked his name, he gave a different name.

  • God Bless America

    As for me and my house we are planning a trip to our state capitol May 4 for a noon-time prayer service of Kentuckians led by Franklin Graham for spiritual renewal in our nation.  Mr. Graham is holding prayer services in each of our 50 state capitals.  It would be wonderful to have thousands at the gathering on May 4.  This will be the day before the National Day of Prayer services held locally and through out the United States.

  • Blessed

    “Bless your heart.” “God bless you.” “May the Lord bless you.” “I am blessed.”

    Have you ever thought about the word “bless”? It really isn’t a common, everyday sort of word. It is a churchy/Bible word. Even though we may use it a lot, primarily among allergy-afflicted sneezers, I am not sure we could easily define the word we are using.

  • FFA fighting hunger

    LaRue County High School agriculture teacher Chris Thomas and his greenhouse students are adding something special to their plant offerings this spring.

    The LaRue County FFA chapter has been awarded a $2500 grant as part of the FFA: Food for All program. The nationwide program provides grant money to local FFA chapters to support year-long service-learning projects that address local hunger needs.

    Thomas said the local project is called “FFA Buckets of Hope.”
