  • Card shop prepares to close doors

    Hanging up the 60 percent sale signs wasn’t hard.

    Cleaning off shelves and staring at bare ones isn’t difficult either.

    “Putting up that road sign - that was my breaking point,” Kurz said at Touch of Charm gift shop.

    Kurz expects to shut the store doors for good by the middle of next month.

    “We’re down to the weeks,” Kurz said.

    Horses have taken over Southside Elementary.

  • Little League season: A time for fun at the ballpark

    Saturday marks the beginning of the 2010 Little League season in Harrison County at the River Road Park. All teams are scheduled to play and, weather permitting, will start the season off with a bang. 

    I will be watching with great interest the plight of the Auto Systems team since our oldest grandson, Hayden is playing on that team.

    The other two grandsons are in coach pitch so that too will be a regular destination.  That is unless the princess CeCe decides that we don’t need to go, but that too is another story.
