  • Azaleas in the sun

    Did you know that azaleas and rhododendrons are essentially the same thing? They are both members of the rhododendron genus; they have similar blooms and similar cultural requirements.  
    Some say the primary difference between the two is the number of pollen-bearing stamens:  rhods have 10 or more per flower and azaleas have only five.  
    The rhododendron genus is divided into five main groups:  Large-leaf rhods; small-leaf rhods; Vireya rhods; deciduous azaleas; and evergreen azaleas. The latter two are our primary concern here.

  • Breds end streak, rout St. Henry 11-1 in five innings

    A two-game losing streak isn’t much for many teams, but it seems much longer to the Harrison County High School baseball program.  
    Add to the scenario that the steak came after six straight wins on the road and it is even more unlikely.
    That is all in the past now as the Thorobreds got back on track Tuesday night beating St. Henry’s Crusaders 11-1 in five innings.
    The game started poorly for the Breds as starting pitcher Justin Nutter was wild in the beginning walking the first two batters and throwing a wild pitch.

    The Breds dropped a 12-9 decision to Covington Holy Cross on Friday and then returned to the diamond Saturday to lose to Grant County, 7-4.
