    Harrison Memorial Hospital’s board of directors has decided to keep the local facility independent.

  • Plant and seed catalogs will be jamming the mailbox any day now.  
    I always feel like January ushers in a clean slate for the garden: Optimism abounds among fresh ideas and promises never to repeat a crop-busting mistake are sharp in my memory.  
    Sometimes the slate stays clean; sometimes it doesn’t.  Either way the next couple of months can be used to plan and prepare for the next growing season.  

  • I used to believe the saying that “Time heals all wounds.”  
    This has just not been true for me. As a child who grew up with two alcoholic parents, I had some hurts and wounds that were not repairing themselves with passing time.  
    In fact, the longer I tried to ignore my pain, the more damage I did to myself. I searched for ways to numb the pain and ignore the damage that had been done.   

  • Not to get all TMI (“too much information”) on you, but I have this black spot on my toenail.
    When I first noticed it, my over-active, ultra-melodramatic imagination decided it was melanoma and I only had three weeks to live.
    It turned out to be blood underneath the nail from the time I dropped something on it. The doctor diagnosed it as an “owie” and said it would take a long time for it to go away, that the spot would grow out as the nail grows.
