  • Fruit crop diseases are starting to appear!  With all of the wet weather lately, I am actually surprised that it hasn’t gotten worse than it already is.  Apples are showing signs of frogeye and apple scab.  These area early diseases of apples and relatives such as crabapple. If you have frogeye the leaves will have a small brown spot with a lighter tan colored interior. Apple scab will have darker less symmetrical lesions without a lighter tan interior.

    About 15 years ago, a woman approached local writer Paul Jordan at the VFW hall in Lebanon about an interesting story.
    She knew of Jordan’s history as a journalist - he had a distinguished career with the Associated Press before going into public service - and laid out the horrifying true details of her family life that eventually became “Descent to Sudden Death,” Jordan’s sixth book, which he signs 2-4 p.m. Saturday at Bardstown Booksellers.
