  • Specialty seed catalogs deliver quality

    I have learned to be discerning when it comes to catalog shopping.  
    I steer clear of outrageous or cheap deals. I prefer the specialty catalog where expertise reigns, providing us with both a good product and the information to grow it well.  
    I shop locally as much as I can but for some crops we must turn to the catalogs that are filling the mailbox this time of the year.

  • New eye surgery procedure for cataracts performed at HMH

    A new procedure in ophthalmology surgery (eye surgery) called dropless cataract surgery is being performed at Harrison Memorial Hospital by Dr. David Blandford, HMH Ophthalmologist.
    Cataract is a name given to the natural lens of the eye as it becomes cloudy, resulting in blurred vision. The purpose of the lens is to bend (refract) light rays to help you see. The lens should be clear but, with a cataract, things may look blurry, hazy or less colorful.

  • Winter gardening restores

    There is something about working in the garden on a sunny winter day: It clears debris from both the perennial bed and the gardener’s head.   
    There is clarity to the winter landscape that is quite different than any other season.  On a clear day, the sky is a true blue, you can see all the birds flitting about the leafless trees.
