  • I have been driving for many years and for the longest time the premise was you could speed to a certain point before you would be pulled over. Hence, 8-over your fine; 9-over your mine (ticketed).
    It’s worked pretty well during those years I lived by it, but do not espouse it today.
    WARNING: DO NOT test this with law enforcement.

  • The magnolia family is diverse and April is the month that some of them begin to show their blooms in a most dramatic way. Among the native evergreen species are the southern magnolia (M. grandiflora) and the sweet bay magnolia (M. virginiana). The sweet bay magnolia has undoubtedly been over-used; I have seen them planted smack-dab against people’s homes on countless occasions. The southern magnolia, on the other hand, has a reputation for being marginally hardy here, so it may suffer from under planting. Selecting the right variety can solve the problem.

  • The Harrison County Extension Office will host a Lunch and Learn on Tuesday, April 12 at noon at the Extension office.
    Bring lunch or a snack and let’s have a conversation about:
    • Alzheimer’s disease: Getting the facts

    • Among people age 70, 61 percent of those with Alzheimer’s are expected to die before age 80 compared with 30 percent of people without Alzheimer’s -- a rate twice as high.

  • * Our hearts are truly saddened at the passing of our Dorothy - Dorothy Florence Slade - the finest example of a lady, a dedicated wife and mother.
