  • With June comes the start of summer and an abundance of fresh produce available at the River View Farmers Market. An in-season produce you may not necessarily associate with late spring and early summer is broccoli.

    Broccoli actually has two growing seasons in Kentucky. Kentucky growers began harvesting their first crop in May and will continue to harvest through early July. The second season ends with a harvest in the late fall.

  • Many of us have fond memories of our grandfathers… the stories, the candy, the fishing lessons and life lessons we learn while visiting them are things we treasure and carry with us throughout our lives. But as family dynamics have changed, more and more grandfathers are finding the old adage of “spoil them rotten and send them home” no longer a reality. In fact, around 2.4 million grandparents across the United States are now raising their grandchildren.

  • Summer Reading Program: Build a Better World will run until June 30. Call (502) 732-7020 for more information.
