  • Griesser guest speaker for leadership event

    The speaker for this year’s Extension Leadership Event is Gary Griesser, a retired Boone County Superintendent. Griesser has been a motivational speaker for many civic, business and community events even before he became a professional speaker in 1987. He does a very moving patriotic program. If you think that sounds familiar, it should. We had him for the first time at the old Farm Home City program in 1989 and again in 1999.

  • Breds season ends in loss to Montgomery

    The Harrison County Thorobreds were unable to hang on to a five-point lead inside the last two minutes, and lost its opening-round game to Montgomery County on Saturday in the 10th Region Tournament at the Bank of Kentucky Center.

  • Tree topping should be a crime

    There were few things that made my dad cringe more than the practice of topping trees. He would scratch his brow and shake his head at the thought of a homeowner paying to have their trees butchered. It was slightly less offensive if utility companies butchered trees because it could be rationalized:  Downed limbs create a hazard and cause power outages, whichcan cause more than just unhappy customers, as we have seen over the curse of the last six months.

  • Our attitudes and actions will become our legacy

    Remember this name: Mordecai Ham. I’ll tell you at the end who he is.

    Meanwhile, let me tell you about Phil Munsey, a guy I heard on the radio the other day.

    He wrote a book last year called “Legacy Now: Why Everything About You Matters.”

    The point of his book is that big or small, everything in our lives matters and everything we do has eternal consequences.
