  • Build two houses from the same set of blueprints and they should be identical. Right?

    Then, why is it, when a male and female insect of the same species have identical genetic blueprints, one is always larger than the other?

    That’s the paradox that Dr. Craig Stillwell, former LaRue Countian who is an entomologist at the University of Arizona, solved and whose solution has been published online and will be found in print publications as far away as London, England.

  • With short blasts, the airbrush gun sprayed bursts of red paint on the blue and white surface of the bag. Moments later, Janet Brown arranged potato chips near the open bag so the chips appeared to be spilling out.

    But the chips were not real potato chips. They were specially shaped dried fondant pieces and were part of her cake, which looked like a bag of chips.

    “When I work with cakes, I work with the real thing,” Brown said. She had put a real potato chip bag beside her chocolate cake to use as a model for her cake sculpting.

  • Soybeans are in the fields for about six months of the year in LaRue County.  Let’s look at a brief summary of grower actions during these months.

    May: Full-season soybean planting should begin by mid May. Growers will burn down or till weeds prior to planting. Roundup Ready soybeans are grown most often now. Pre-emergence herbicides can be applied immediately after planting and before the crop emerges. Stand counts should be conducted to determine the quality of the stand. 

  • A grill owned by the LaRue County Pork Producers was returned last week after being “misplaced” for a couple of months. The group loaned the grill, valued at $1,500, to a local church in February, according to Bill Goatley.

    One of the church members placed the grill in a storage building and forgot about it, Goatley said.

    The Pork Producers can start scheduling community cooks.

  • April is National Organ and Tissue Donation Month and the LaRue County Circuit Court Clerk’s office wants everyone to consider becoming a potential organ and tissue donor. They also want everyone who wants to be a donor to sign up on the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

  • A Kentucky farm owner invites his brother, nieces and nephews from the city for an afternoon of fishing at the pond behind his house. The farm owner tells his guests not to worry about a fishing license since they plan to fish on his land.

    However, the visitors in fact do need their license.

  • Farm tractors and farm equipment can be dangerous as evidenced by accidents with injuries and fatalities each year on farms.

    Many tractor-related deaths could have been prevented with use of Roll-Over Protective Structures and seatbelts. If possible, have ROPS installed on all tractors that are not equipped with one. ROPS are available for most tractors manufactured since the late 1960s, and for some popular models manufactured prior to these times. Check with a tractor dealer for information on a ROPS for your make and model of your tractor.

  • Good things are said to come in threes and a trio of juniors on LaRue County High School’s speech team appear to be proving that maxim to be true.

    Gibson has been traveling with the speech team since seventh grade. Public speaking seems to run in the Tim and Edie Gibson family.
