  • Fighting the Battle with Chiggers

    It’s chigger time across Kentucky. Just talking about them may make you itch. Chiggers are actually the immature stage of certain mite species. You’ll find them most often in overgrown, bushy areas. They also congregate in shady, humid areas near stream banks, under or around shade trees or in berry thickets.

    After hatching, larvae crawl around until they find and attach to a suitable host. In addition to humans, chiggers feed on a variety of wild and domestic animals, including snakes, turtles, birds, rodents and domestic pets such as dogs and cats.

    Thought for the week: Don’t start your day with the broken pieces from yesterday.

    Boy… It’s not even first day of summer and temperatures are already 94 degrees with a heat index over 100. I am not complaining as long as my air conditioner is working, just saying. 

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Rosleen Price, Portia Price, Kenneth Gibson and family, Butch McCoy, Sonya Turner and family, Frances Turner and family, Dale Emerson. Martha Turner, Billy Duncan, Stephanie Wimp, David Wells and Alene Skaggs. 

  • Blast from the past
  • Shanghaied to China

    Like a lot of other people, Brian Anderson is looking forward to visiting Disneyland this summer.

    Unlike most of the others, however, his Disneyland destination is in Shanghai, China.

    “I’ll be heading to Shanghai at the end of June,” said the 2015 LaRue County High School graduate who is a rising senior at Western Kentucky University. ‘I’ll be staying in China for about two months.”

  • Remembering LaRue Dairy

    June is dairy month and dairying means a lot to the LaRue County citizens. Last year, from the sale of milk alone, an estimated $6, 200, 000 was brought into the LaRue County economy. And this doesn’t include the income generated through the sale of dairy cattle or other dairy related products, not the value of corn, hay, other feed products or other inputs into the dairies of LaRue County. Dairying is big business.
