Local reps hoping special session can be completed in a week or less

Kentucky state legislature: Will Shelby remain whole in new lineup?

By Todd Martin

State legislators are set to return to Frankfort Monday for a special session to redraw state House and Senate and Supreme Court boundaries.

The state House and Senate had passed new legislative boundaries in 2012, but the state Supreme Court ruled them unconstitutional.

Shelby County Clerk Sue Carole Perry said legislators have left all the county clerks in the state in a lurch, as they argued over boundaries.

WICHE: Sawflies strip dogwood foliage

By Jeneen Wiche

One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly. We had planted more than 100 white pine seedlings some 30 years ago, and after a decade or so we started to lose a couple each year to one problem or another. Daddy charged me with inspection duty: looking for and plucking bagworms; collecting beetles in jars for identification at the county extension service; or closely noting the color, legs and chewing habits of the various caterpillars I encountered.

New educational standards move away from religion and the Bible.

SOUDER: What will our kids learn in school?

By Chuck Souder

Early one August morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. “Wake up, son,” she said. “It's the first day of school, and you don’t want to be late.”
“But, Mom, I don't want to go,” he said.

“Give me two reasons why you don't want to go,” his mother asked.

 “Well, the kids make fun of me for one, and the teachers don’t like me either!”

The mother was unconvinced. “That's no reason not to go to school – now get ready!”

WICHE: Bagworms are on the move

By Jeneen Wiche

Who among us is guilty of not noticing something until it’s too late? Yes, all of a sudden there is nothing left of your blue spruce or arborvitae. Bagworms have been munching on the needles for weeks, and we wonder how it all happened.

Well, they are at work right now so go outside and take inventory of your evergreens because that’s what the bagworm likes the most. Now is the time they do their damage unless we put a stop to it.
