    In a pair of physical soccer matches the Harrison County Thorobreds tied the Grant County Braves 1-1 on Thursday and fell 2-0 to Pendleton County on Tuesday night.  
    Grant County scored in the first half on a goal that bounced off of goal keeper Max Ferguson in what was simply bad luck.  The shot was not hard but found a way to get by one of the better goal keepers in the area for the score.

  • Favorite fall perennials

    There are some perennials that I can’t live without because of their fabulous late-summer and fall performance.  
    Plant them in your garden now because you will overlook them at garden centers come spring.
    My mixed perennial beds look the best this time of the year (barring any unpleasant summer drought; and please ignore the weeds!)  The black-eyed Susan’s, Russian sage and various species of Aster, Salvia and Nepeta are prolific but they are only mediocre anchor plants compared to some of the other species that come on this time of the year.
