  • The search for replacement trees is on. After drought, wind and ice, we are all looking for something different and reliable to fill the void left behind by extreme weather.  We plant trees all year round with no ill effects, but some trees do prefer being planted in spring. 

    Usually soft-rooted species respond well to spring planting, it’s just easier to establish roots during the warm, rainy season, I suppose.

  • * Log Cabin, Nov. 11, 1905 - “There doubtless was a large Methodist membership in 1818 when Richard Henderson deeded the site of the present building to the trustees, for in 1820 a brick building was completed with a seating capacity of about 500. The building burned in 1844 and was replaced by a smaller edifice, seating probably about 250 persons. A third building, seating probably 350, was dedicated in 1870, and remained until the present year when it was supplanted by the beautiful structure which is now near completion.”

  • Water is a vital part of our lives; so it’s no surprise that it is also a big business. The big debate is whether tap or bottled water is better for you. The short answer is each has benefits.

    However, sales of bottled water have tripled over the last 10 years. Some believe this is due to marketing ploys; it’s hard to tell if it really is better for you than just plain tap water. In fact, 25 percent of bottled water is taken directly from the same reservoirs where we get our tap water.

  • 2009 Harrison County

    4-H Style Revue

    The 2009 Harrison County 4-H Style Revue will be held Friday, April 17 at 7 p.m. at the Harrison County High School.  The Style Revue is the end result of a tremendous amount of work and time by the leaders and 4-H’ers of the 4-H Crocheting, Knitting, and Sewing Projects. Without the dedication of these 4-H leaders of their time, efforts, and talents, many of the young ladies involved would not have the opportunity to learn clothing construction skills, develop self confidence, poise, and modeling skills.
