    * Log Cabin, Aug. 18, 1933 (Great Depression) -- “The County Relief Committee is issuing an appeal for contributions of empty jars and cans to be used for putting up fruits and vegetables to be distributed this winter through the relief office.”

  • HMH Auxiliary celebrates 50 years of service

    The year 1966 was a historical one for Harrison Memorial Hospital. Not only was the land purchased for the current hospital location, but construction began shortly after for the new facility on Millersburg Pike. And, in February of that same year, our HMH Auxiliary was formed.

    Autumn is a beautiful time in Kentucky gardens, but it can also be a messy time. The season brings piles of leaves from our trees and spent shoots from our flower beds.

  • Affordable health screenings coming to Cynthiana

    Residents living in and around Cynthiana, Ky. can learn about their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, and other chronic, serious conditions with affordable screenings by Life Line Screening. The Harrison County Extension Office will host this community event on Oct. 24. The site is located at 668 New Lair Road in Cynthiana.

    Screenings can check for:

    • The level of plaque buildup in your arteries, related to risk for heart disease, stroke and overall vascular health.

  • Trees from seeds can be a challenge

    Some plants are prolific; some are not.  Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.   Woody plants can be a bit more elusive.  I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone nor an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath its canopy.  Starting woody plants from seed can be tricky.
