  • Royals trump Breds Friday night

    The Harrison County Thorobreds hosted one of the favorites to win the 10th Region Friday night and Mason County showed one and all why they are rated so highly.  

    In a game where Harrison County never led, Mason County pulled away to an easy 71-51 victory. Easy, not to say the Thorobreds didn’t try hard, but like the Clark County game, they never could get shots to fall early and just kept falling further behind. 

  • Deicing agents hard on plants

    A blanket of snow has the ability to brighten the dreariest of days. And, despite school closures and tricky driving, a snow-covered landscape proves to be quite beautiful. It’s not so bad for the plants either, so don’t be tempted to knock the snow off drooping branches.

    Snow has an insulating effect which is particularly useful when we do have frigid temperatures. Ground level snow will actually protect the roots and crowns of perennial and woody plants, but you may notice a little burn above the snow level when it comes to broadleaf evergreens.

  • Offer long-lasting Valentine blooms

    Cut flowers are undoubtedly the most popular manifestation of showing your love for someone on Valentine’s Day, but potted flowering plants do the trick, too.  Perhaps the potted bloom has the potential to remind your lover that the sentiment lasts all year… but what does it mean if you can’t get it to bloom again? Is your loved doomed? Of course not, but here are some tips just in case.

    African violets are sweet and have the ability to bloom all year round so consider these as a lasting representation of love. 

  • Berry resident dissatisfied with timing and quality of services

    To the editor:

    I think I speak for most of the residents in Berry.

    During our last two snowfalls, we have had nothing done to our roads. They had school, but some of us had to take our children or grandchildren to the post office and pick them up because the buses could not get up or down some of the streets. I think we have more commissioners than we have streets.

    During last year’s ice storm we were out of electric for two days before we were noticed on Mockingbird Lane. It was very able to see because no one had lights or street lights.

  • Wrestling region this weekend at Dunbar

    The large number of schools participating has caused the wrestling region to be changed to a Friday night and Saturday format. Friday night starts at 6 p.m.; Saturday at 10 a.m. 

    Harrison County will have four wrestlers in the top four seeds in their weight classes along with 11 others who will compete in hopes of grabbing some points for the Thorobreds.
