    By Katie Pratt

    In addition, some producers have increased their acreage this year to take full advantage of the favorable prices. Specialists with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture will offer producers advice during the 2011 Winter Wheat Meeting to help ensure they have a successful growing season.

    After being down by 20 points with 2:08 remaining in the first half, the Lady Knights rallied to tie the game at 63 at the end of regulation to force an overtime period. Despite the massive comeback, Marion County fell just short, losing by two points with a final score of 71-69.

  • Season brings out honesty, geese

    An unexpected development in this holiday season is the honesty it’s brought out in the big oil companies.
    Unlike in the past when gas prices were tied to natural disasters, which always happened over a holiday season, this year, no excuses were made that I’ve heard about.
    Gas prices were jacked up because: it’s a big travel season; and the oil companies can do it and theres nothing we can do to stop it!
    So, happy holidays!
