    Are you interested in beekeeping? If so, the Harrison County Extension Office has a perfect opportunity coming up where you can learn everything you need know to get started.

  • One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly.  We had planted over a 100 white pine seedlings over 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.  

  • LINVILLE

  • What kind of person are you? When you pass away, how will you be remembered by those who knew you? 

    A couple of weeks ago, my family returned to Texas because I was asked to conduct the memorial service of one of our former church members there. Glen Milham passed away in the early hours of Aug. 1, the very day of his 89th birthday. 

  •  

    Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.

    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.

    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.

  • SILAS BAPTIST

    Members of Silas Baptist Church invites everyone to visit Silas on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m. to hear the religious group CrossTithes. The men of CrossTithes are best summed up by their motto: “Simple men. Simple music. An Awesome God!” Devoted to simple service, they believe that God doesn’t call us to do great things, He calls us to do things...and He’ll make them great.
