  • J.T. Davis of Carrollton is a huge NASCAR fan. He watches virtually every Monster Energy Series race that is on television, as well as many of the XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series races. He keeps a schedule of the races on his refrigerator, but he can tell you exactly which race is next on the circuit without looking. His favorite driver is Kyle Busch, but if he isn’t racing, he knows which cars Busch owns and cheers for them instead.

    J.T. is also just eight years old.

  • A car, truck or sport utility vehicle with a couple of kayaks on the roof with fishing poles visible through the back window is an increasingly common sight on Kentucky highways.

    Sales data shows kayak fishing and related kayak accessories increasing in popularity. Some of this popularity has to do with many baby boomers reaching retirement age and wanting a new hobby.

    Price is another aspect of the rise in popularity of kayak fishing. They are a replacement for a fishing boat for many people scared off by the rising cost of power boats.

  • Home gardeners look forward to that first ripe tomato or ear of corn they pick from their carefully tended gardens, but after some vigorous gardening on a hot, humid day, you may wonder if it is all worth it.  Of course it is!

    Weeds compete with crops for water, nutrients and sunlight.  Some weeds, like quackgrass, can chemically inhibit vegetable plant growth. Others host insect pests and disease pathogens.  All of these result in fewer fresh vegetables for your table.  Let us consider some approaches to tackling weeds in our gardens.
