  • State acts to address cancer stats

    Each year, 25,000 Kentuckians – nearly 70 a day – are given the one diagnosis nobody ever wants to hear from their doctor: Cancer.

    If there is a silver lining surrounding this sizeable cloud, it is that we are seeing true progress in making sure this word is said much less often. Nationally, deaths are down a fifth from their peak in 1991, and most types of cancers – but not all – are in decline.

    The Carrollton Lions Club held its annual poker run on Saturday, June 1, in memory of Mike Gividen.

  • Soil compaction can create problems in the garden

    Gardening season is in full force with the threat of frost now behind us.  Before the garden went in, we had soil on our minds with testing the soil for fertilizer and lime.  How-ever, now is also a good time to think about your soil.

    I have talked about soil compaction in cropland, but soil compaction also creates an unfriendly growing environment for garden plants. 

    It is a serious problem for many home gardeners.  Thankfully, it is relatively easy to prevent.
