Stotts Construction Company, Columbia, KY, mobilized equipment last week in preparation for the KY 704 Water Line Project, which will bring adequate water pressure with room to grow to the area from the point above in the Antioch Community to Kentucky 704/Fairplay Road and adjoining areas. Monarch Engineers of Lawrenceburg, KY, is providing engineering for the project. Initial starting today will be directional bores under the roads, which will be followed by laying of the pipe.

Joyce Coomer: Culmination of Purple Week in yard

A grand finale of Purple - great except for 'non-native, invasive, and annoying henbit.'

Joyce Coomer writes:
The redbuds in bloom around the pasture were a grand finale of "purple week" in my yard. The grape hyacinths have been in bloom for more than two weeks and seemed to be even happier yesterday than when they first started blooming. Regular hyacinths scattered hither and yon are still blooming brightly -- purple, of course -- and the squill still has a few bright blooms. Scattered batches of violets were in bloom across the yard yesterday.

Also in the purple theme are two hyacinths by the porch at work and vinca by the side of the building which has been highlighted with dandelions. (See accompanying photo.)

However, the non-native, invasive and annoying henbit I can do without.
