    The two teams had met this season one other time and Bracken County won by a 69-28 score on the Fillies’ home floor.  It was hard to believe the same two teams were facing each other on Tuesday night as Harrison County battled tooth and nail before falling 53-48 to the Lady Bears.
    Harrison County took an early lead with baskets by senior Emalee Little and freshman Chelsea Ingram but Bracken County scored two three pointers to take the lead 6-5 with under four minutes remaining in the opening period.  

  • Some things I don’t understand

    I’m 63 years old, traveled to every state but three or four if you count Alaska, been to four foreign countries and have been married 40 years in July. Yet, events happen and things are said every day that continue to amaze me. Let me give you some examples.
    NBA basketball’s all star weekend and what attraction that has to a seemingly large group of Americans baffles me.

  • Tobacco meeting planned for March 8

    The Harrison County Extension Office is planning a tobacco production meeting which will be held at the Harrison County 4-H Center on Wednesday, March 8. The meeting will begin at noon.
    Even though the number of producers have diminished over the last few years the acreage and poundage has leveled off or may be increasing a small amount. This meeting is to help those producers find ways to be more efficient while finding ways to improve the quality of their product.

  • Planting time almost here

    I am plotting and planning and placing orders for onion sets and seed potatoes and summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm.
    I can barely stand the wait!  
    I have two trays of seedlings that I started about two weeks ago and have begun another round of kale, broccoli and Brussels sprouts in three more trays.
    My set up is not elaborate; it basically consists of a kit that includes a plastic dome that fits over a seed tray and pan.
