  • Ticks have been especially active this year, and the tiny lone star tick will be most active over the next few weeks. This species gets its name from a distinct white spot on the back of the adult female.

    Reaction to their bites cause painful itching that can last for 7 to 20 days. Dressing appropriately, using repellents, and checking regularly for ticks are important actions to take to reduce the chances for ticks attaching and feeding on you during the remainder of the tick season.

  • Hello once again, my friends. As I sit typing this article I can only think of days to come, days when the high temperatures are not 100 degrees with high humidity. The dog days of summer are upon us, but that doesn’t mean we stop eating. In fact, with birthdays, parties and summer cookouts we often eat just as much or more during the summer.

  • Two employees of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources recently used the department’s website at www.fw.ky.gov to glean information on catching saugeye.

    They used the 5-foot contour maps on the “Find a place to fish” to study the bottom of Guist Creek Lake in Shelby County and determine a place to fish. They later fished those areas and caught their first saugeye.
