Winter Pruning Tips from MSU Horticulturalist

Pruning during the dormant months is the most common practice, allowing plants ample opportunity to grow in the spring. Murray State Horticulture faculty member Pat Williams addresses pruning in the winter and what to do about ice-damaged trees in a workshop from 1 to 3 Saturday (February 15) afternoon at the Pullen Farm greenhouse at the Murray State Arboretum, on Hickory Drive, off Main Street.

Lt. Gov Jerry Abramson presented a draft of Governor Steve Beshear's proposed tax code changes to the House budget committee today, which was first announced by Beshear last week. The changes, if fully implemented, could raise an estimated $210 million annually by expanding the 6% sales tax to select services, an increased tax on cigarettes from 60 cents to $1 dollar per pack, and reducing tax breaks on pensions for people earning more than $80,000. On Sounds Good, Kate speaks with policy analyst and member of the Governor's Blue Ribbon Committee on tax reform, Jason Bailey about the events of the day.
