  • HCHS CLASS OF 1964
    The Harrison County High School Class of 1964 will be having their annual informal reunion at Biancke Station on Saturday, Oct. 19. Dinner (each orders from the menu and picks up his/her own tab) will begin at 5 p.m. and there will be a social time around 6:30 in the same area. Feel free to attend the dinner and/or the social time. We really want to see you at both, but if your schedule won’t allow you to do so, you can choose to attend either the dinner or the social time.

  • Brittany Bennett, Cynthiana, has entered nine head of Holstein in the Dairy Cattle division of the 40th annual North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE).
    The NAILE is recognized as the world’s largest purebred livestock show with more than 26,000 entries.
    Scheduled for Nov. 9-22, the event takes place at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky.

  • There are two categories of garlic to consider: Allium sativum, or softneck garlic, and Allium ophioscordon, or hardneck garlic.   
    Softneck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.  
    Through centuries of selection softneck garlic has lost the ability to flower so it doesn’t expend energy on producing seed; instead the energy goes towards developing bigger bulbs underground.

  • For the past month I have been working on stories for my newspaper’s month-long emphasis on breast cancer.
    I’m up to my eyebrows in breast cancer research and have talked with a number of women who are either actively in treatment for this disease or are counting the months and years of being a survivor.
    As it always happens whenever I write about a disease or medical condition, I convince myself that I’m next to get it. When my husband had open-heart surgery, I thought I had heart disease. It took three or four doctors to assure me that I did not.

  • Several weeks ago, one of the top trending stories on the Internet featured an email from a North Carolina church pastor that was sent to her parishioners.
    Pastor Makeda Pennycooke of Freedom House Church in Charlotte, N.C., told church members that she wanted “white greeters only” at the front door before Sunday services. She said she wanted “the best of the best” out front, hoping to draw more people into the church.

  • How about this weather?
    I am anticipating a very good orchid season coming up because our temperatures have been so mild, especially with night time temperatures dipping into the 50s already.  
    These cool nights are a piece of the puzzle in order to get some plants to bloom indoors in the winter.
    When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes.
    We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.
