  • Band of Hawks compete and host

    The LaRue County Band of Hawks doubled down on events last weekend, competing in Taylor County before coming back home to host a contest of their own.

    This all came about because of a partnership between the two schools, according to LaRue County Band Director Jaime Smith. Smith said they felt something needed to be done about LaRue County’s contest, which, as he said, has been declining in popularity in recent years. Last year, Smith said the contest was canceled as only four bands signed up.

  • Check off fall garden tasks

    You can see and feel the change of seasons. Fall color is starting to appear, pansies, mums and asters are in the garden center and your thoughts are turning to preparing your landscape for winter.

    Those in warm climates are switching to winter annuals, while those in colder regions are fortifying their landscapes for the cold winter ahead. No matter where you live, invest some time in preparing your landscape for the change in seasons. Dedicating some time now will pay off with healthier more beautiful plants next spring.

  • Share the road during harvest

    Grain harvest equipment is much larger than it used to be. Combines are much bigger, grain carts have increased in size tremendously, and semi-trucks and trailers haul hundreds of bushels of grain away from high capacity combines.

    This equipment has to travel from field to field to harvest our corn and soybean crops. As a result, large farm equipment is on our rural roads that were not designed or suited for them.

    Both farmers and the general public should share in the responsibility of safe travel during the harvest season.
